The Monster Down the Trail


Scott told of his encounter in Everett, Washington in the mid 90s:

“I was younger, about 14 years old and we all decided to go for a little ride on our dirt bikes. I think there was Jason, Chad... there was probably about five of us, me being the youngest. Well, Chad was same age as me and there's another guy, Jason, he was about 18 years old. My brother is three years older than me. He was there too and Trevor, Eric, yeah, there's quite a few of us. So we're out riding dirt bikes, you know, and, of course, we want to find a place where we can smoke cigarettes because we're young and we want to hide. Jason bought the cigarettes because, you know, he's of age. So I was on my mom's four-wheeler and my brother and them they were on their dirt bikes.

We lived out in a long road, farm fields, out in the middle of the woods, pretty far out of town - our house was on the river. So we find this trail back behind this old abandoned barn and we go down it and then we come to this big clearing. There's like a big open area, it looks like a pit kind-of - a perfect spot! So, you know, we all jump off our motorcycles and we're chilling, talking, bullshitting and walking around smoking cigarettes and we see a little trail. Well, it wasn't too little, I mean, it was probably, I don't know, three people could stand side-by-side, you know, next to each other and walk down this trail. It was pretty beaten down. We didn't think about that it was obviously way too big for like a deer or like that. So we get walking down this trail and Chad's like, 'Oh dude, what the hell, look at this sh*t!' So we all walk over there you know and we look and there's a cow, a dead cow, and it's off in the bushes and it's got the head ripped off and some of the stomach, it wasn't all ripped open but some of the stomach was. It had been there awhile. We walk down a little bit farther and we found a deer head. We didn't find the body. It had antlers on it and that was a weird thing and then Jason's like, 'Holy sh*t, you know, I wonder if a bears been back here or something.' But, you know, all the years of living out there, I seen one bear. It was across the river in there, a black bear and I've never seen a bear or heard of a bear ripping a deer's head off. I haven't. But we thought, 'Oh yeah, it's a bear, right' and now that I'm older I think that was stupid.

So we're walking down this trail, thinking, 'Wow, this is crazy' and all of a sudden we hear these big thuds like BOOM BOOM. Now that was weird. We're like, 'Whoa, what was that?' I mean the trees are probably about that big around – 15 inches - you know, they weren't huge trees, but they're about that big around, you know, tall skinny ones. I forget what kind of trees they are, maybe old cotton or rather little baby cottonwoods. I don't know, but they're pretty tall and we're standing there we heard these big thuds. We're looking, of course, you'll be looking around if you're in the middle of the woods. All of a sudden just BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM. I mean, it's loud. It's big bangs coming through the woods and then all of a sudden you could see the trees coming from a distance they're moving over like, you know, they're not falling down but they're moving out of the way like something's like running through the woods and all we see coming through the bushes was this big black thing and I'm gonna tell you my friends, this was no bear. This sumbitch was tall, huge and the running it was making, I mean, these were goddamn thuds BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM and you could hear trees crashing, pushing over and we hightailed it. We ran so fast, we ran past the motorcycles and left them in the woods.

Yeah, it was ridiculous. So we ran home. We tell my dad, you know, there's something in the woods. It's huge, you know, we didn't tell them it was Bigfoot or whatever. We were thinking, 'Oh my god this thing's huge!' and my dad's like, 'I can't believe you idiots left your dirt bikes in the woods. I don't know what the hell you guys are dreaming or smoking.' So anyway, we tell him, you know, we are not going back into those woods and, you know, we got Jason and he's way older than us and he's telling him, 'Hey man,' he's on my dad, 'There's something in them woods! Something huge is back there!' There's dead sh*t everywhere!' I mean, it was ridiculous, and the way these trees were moving to the side BOOM BOOM BOOM what else would it have been? I mean this thing was huge. It was big, black, we didn't, you know, get to see the face, obviously.

We're not going back into the woods by ourselves, you know, we were scared. So my dad gets his rifle and we go down there and we show my dad the trail and he was like, 'Wow, this is weird!' Nothing came back out. We didn't see anything else. We walked my dad down the trail and, yeah, the trees were pushed to the side. There was this log about the same size as the trees, it was falling down in between the stump and the riverbed, broken. It was broken in half, like something ran right through it because there's a tree it was just like laying across the ground. It's probably about three or four feet in the air how it came across and landed on the stump. So it must have been a tree that fell or whatever. It just ran right through that son-of-a-bitch. I mean it ran right through it and the trees were kind of bent like, you know, like they got bent over a little bit and you can see that the dirt was a little bit up. It was pretty bizarre. My dad did say 'I wonder if it was a Bigfoot.' Then, you know, we thought, Hmm, oh yeah, you know, being kids, Bigfoot, but we did here at my dad's house, even the neighbors had said sh*t about it, about you could hear this screaming. It wasn't a cougar. It was the weirdest noise and now that I'm older, I guess, that was probably Bigfoot screams.

I haven't been back there in years and it's right next to my dad's house. I've often thought, hey, maybe it lives back there... maybe it's still there. It's an old abandoned barn right there deep in the middle of the woods. So obviously this Bigfoot has killed people's cows in their fields and ate them. I mean, I don't know what the whole head ripping off thing is. I don't know if that's a thing or if anybody else is witnessed this, but it's pretty bizarre.”

Daily 2 Cents: Buffalo, NY Suburb Sasquatch -- Strange 'Dots' -- Dangerous Asian Tick Found in New Jersey


Buffalo, NY Suburb Sasquatch

Lon, first off, great website you have. This can be a long email but I will try to keep it reasonably short. I saw a UFO in 2013. A few weeks later I was talking to my ex-wife and told her about my sighting, since I know she saw one as a child. That's when she mentions that she saw a Sasquatch in the field behind her house early one morning. I absolutely believed her from the get go. But because of where she saw it I was thinking that she saw one that was passing through. Too many houses around there for them to be living there.

Just for the heck of it, I started taking walks in the woods near the field where she had her sighting. Long story short. I've found many stick structures in the woods around there. I've also been snorted at, barked and growled at, have had sticks and rocks thrown near me. I've also found footprints that I cast, one with dermal ridges. Very amazing stuff. My son was with me when most of these events happened. So it's not my imagination or anything like that. I've since been to other areas around western NY and have either found evidence of sasquatch being there or have heard tree knocks and things thrown near me. I'm now absolutely positive that Sasquatch are living in our suburbs, full time, year round. Thanks. MG

Strange 'Dots' Reported on Hands and Legs

Ogdensburg, NJ - 2017-09-13: I was sleeping. Woke up and noticed 3 dots on my hand. Recently like 4/15/18 I had 3 dots on my ankle after I shared the photo of my hand on Facebook they are hiding the marks. I'm afraid of what they are doing to me because I'm exposing time travel. I don't remember anything about the actual abductions. Some strange dreams maybe about going extremely fast. In fact the Santa Claus commercial about "wanting to go to space" (on ESPN) (was in the winter) and I was sometimes excited to go. If I was abducted. But that was strange because I literally asked them that. In my unconscious state. What made me notice it was... looking at my hand... but Youtube recommended a spider on someone's hand to me that day. I knew right away.

I saw Mothman in 2015 on my deck.

I am scared/mad which is why I'm telling you but mostly want it documented by people.

Also I had a bald spot on my head. Thought I was going bald for a few months. And my hair grew back. Like a nickel sized circle on my head. My ex knows about the bald spot but I don't talk to her. She would think I still have it. - MUFON

Reported at the same time:

Garner, NC on 2018-04-22: I woke up to a strange pattern of dots on my leg in a circle. Almost like I had been probed. I have no recollection of anything happening and I no explanation of how they got there. I was shocked and afraid. - MUFON

Dangerous Asian Tick Found in New Jersey

HUNTERDON COUNTY, N.J. (CBSNewYork) – A tiny parasite could become a big problem this year in New Jersey.

It’s an exotic tick that’s never been seen before in the United States. It was first spotted on a sheep in Hunterdon County, and efforts to wipe it out have failed.

New Jersey has always been home to different species of ticks – five to be exact. But a new variety of the bloodsucking bug is now in the mix.

It’s the East Asian tick, sometimes called a longhorned or bush tick. Originally found in Asia, thousands of them are now in the Garden State. Read more at Exotic Tick Species Arrives In Garden State

Winged Being 'Vanishes' in West Lakeview Chicago


On Friday April 20, 2018 I received a telephone call from a woman in Chicago, in reference to a sighting that her and a friend had on Thursday April 12, 2018 at approximately 7:15 PM CT. It was early dusk, but still plenty of ambient light available.

The two elderly women were walking north along N. Greenway Ave. towards the intersection with W. Diversey Pkwy. in the West Lakeview neighborhood of Chicago.

They both heard a brief 'deep bellowing sound' emanating from the area of the intersection. As they both looked towards that direction, a dark winged being flew in front of them, towards the west, at an altitude of 15 ft. or so. Then suddenly the being 'vanished' from their sight, as if it had been 'swallowed up' somehow. There was no further sound or remnants of the being. The women told me that a man across the street also observed the incident, and immediately began to run in the opposite direction. The women stated that they were 'paralyzed' and could not move or talk for almost 20 seconds after the event. They then hurriedly walked towards their residences.

When they returned home, they were 'confused and drained of energy.' They were fearful of what they saw and agreed not to report the sighting. A week after the incident, one of the women had noticed some of the previous internet reports of a similar winged being in the Chicago. At that time, she contacted me. I was eventually able to talk with both witnesses.

The observation of the winged being was very brief, but the women stated that it was almost black in color and that the wings were somewhat folded along the body, which was 6-7 ft. in length. No other details of the winged being were available.

The witnesses are very private people and insisted that they not be contacted by other investigators.

NOTE: This is the first reported sighting that included details of possible interdimensional abilities...other than the humanoid that disappeared on the Magnificent Mile building roof. The witnesses shared their names and contact information with me, but are not currently willing to have their sighting verified by other members of the task force. This sighting has been added to the Chicago & Regional Winged Humanoid / Flying Entity Sightings & Encounters Interactive Map



Have you had a sighting of a flying humanoid or huge bat-like creature in the Chicago, Illinois metro area or nearby? The entity has also been referred to as the 'Chicago Phantom', 'Chicago Mothman', 'Chicago Owlman' & 'Chicago Man-Bat.' Please feel free to contact me at lonstrickler@phantomsandmonsters.com - your anonymity is guaranteed. Our investigative group is conducting a serious examination of his phenomenon. We are merely seeking the truth and wish to determine what eyewitnesses have been encountering. Your cooperation is truly appreciated. You can call me directly at 410-241-5974 as well.
