Gen. George Patton, Human Experiments & Bigfoot


I received the following communication from a reader, who will remain anonymous. Some of the information has been redacted as well...but the main context is intact:

I was listening to the Bigfoot episode of Arcane Radio. (Government Encounters With Sasquatch)

When I was in high school - once upon a time - I had a teacher who was in the 3rd Army. He was in the hospital ward with Patton, when the guy was slapped. Worshipped the ground Patton walked on. When they were liberating the death camps in Germany, Mr. P. was with Patton. They went into one of the labs. Patton left, sick. He couldn't take it. Mr. P. walked out with him. He gave Mr. P. his famous ivory handled pistol and bullets, and told him to go back and put them out of their misery. What they found, according to Mr. P. had once been human. He went in, and did what Patton told him to do. He walked out, and started drinking that night. He drank until 1970 or so, sobering up when he began teaching school. He's the reason I became active in politics and became a writer.

I asked him about what he found that day. He said he would never speak of it. It was too vile and too horrible. Patton couldn't take it. From what I gather, they then destroyed everything they could find, including notes and records. Patton did not want a repeat of the experimentation.

I never thought much about it until your discussion of Dulce. I live in Lincoln County, in Ruidoso Downs, so it is a NM thing. There is so much military going on here, you finally give up even wondering about it. I never even thought about this - but Mr. P said that Patton stressed the fact that he did not want anyone coming across the records to repeat the experimentations.

Is this what they are doing there? This just leads to any number of questions including the death of Patton. Mr. P swore he was murdered. This state was basically on lock-down during and after WWII due to the bomb, Los Alamos, and the whole nine yards. I've never given the Dulce story any credibility, but I could see the possibility of someone having rescued other records and continued
the horror.

According to one of my sources the majority of 911 calls to the Ruidoso Downs police are dealing with our friendly local Bigfoot. My neighbor has seen it twice. It prowls around our condos. Freaked her one night. Has freaked a friend. Something has tried to open my front door. When I looked out the peep hole this huge dark hand was over it, having opened my storm door, which I now always lock. A few nights after than, something peed all over my door. This has happened several times. It pees a good 5 feet off the ground.

No one wants to talk about it. I finally managed to get confirmation that one of the top hunters is tracking one about a mile east of me - as the crow flies. We have very weird stuff going on here.

I enjoy your blog. Downloaded your latest book onto my Kindle the other day. Haven't had time to read it yet.

NOTE: Fascinating information. I'm hoping more may be forthcoming. Lon

Daily 2 Cents: Woman Describes Life Among Bigfoot -- Peculiar Coordinating Events -- Where Djinn Grant Wishes


Woman Describes Life Among Bigfoot

A woman from Texas, identified only by her first name Brenda, has made some appalling claims during an ongoing show of Coast to Coast.

“We didn’t know what was going on until just a few years ago. At first, we found the house that they were living in. My husband and I didn’t know what it was, and he kind of joked at me about it… at that time we didn’t realize it was a Bigfoot. Since then, our property had a fire, it burned down, so we moved a mile and a half from where we knew they were into another house. Little did we know that we were just coming into a family of them”

So said Brenda, in her radio interview with David Schrader, host of the late night radio show Coast to Coast, on last Friday. According to her, she and her husband hear the "Bigfoot family" scrape their walls, make weird noises and create other kinds of apish nuisance. They, however, are not afeared by them a bit. Instead, they even leave buckets of food for their Sasquatch friends!

“They throw rocks on the house, I hear them talking. People thought I was crazy, but I know what I heard. I’ve heard them yell, walking out close to the house, and my husband too. They are all around us and my son put cameras out below his house and he got some on camera, but they’ve never tried to hurt us. I hear them talking, you can’t make out what they are saying, but know it’s their voices.”

She also says that first there was only Mama Bigfoot and Pappa Bigfoot, but recently, they had a baby! Now they are a blooming, happy family of three Sasquatches living alongside their very own, human house in the middle of town! Brenda has even claimed that another fellow neighbor had seen the Bigfoot trio, but was too scared to talk about it! Yes, we have her word for that. (Various sources)

Peculiar Coordinating Events

Hanston / Burdett, Kansas - 6/16/2014: First, I am a 15R in the Army. Attack helicopter repair crewman. This will come back later.

I was leaving town via the south bridge when I noticed something odd. A pair of cylindrical objects, dark in color and lacking identifying features, flew overhead. These were at high altitude, making determine size and speed difficult. These objects continued their flight at roughly heading 060 to 070, covering an estimated 15 miles in 30 seconds. This is verified by one other eyewitness who claimed they turned nearly above his town. These objects were immediately suspicious, as they distinctly lacked wings or rotors distinguishable from the ground. The objects moved with no sound, and promptly altered direction to heading 180 nearly exact, judging by eye. Approximately doubling their speed, they exited the airspace and were gone roughly a minute after they turned. The maneuverability I observed was limited, but the single example entirely ruled out fixed wing aircraft, and it's speed ruled out rotor wing units. Within the following 3 hours, local air traffic was greatly increased. I personally witnessed a flight of three CH47s in standard army color and configuration, as well as 7 UH-60s or variants, with two sticking out as being a different black than the standard army scheme. These aircraft flew in the same direction as the craft, away from most logical routine destinations. Being between Fort Riley and McConnell AFB, such flights are not unheard of. However, the strange number of aircraft in a short period is unheard of previously, as was the direction. My friend in a nearby town approached me, believing I would recognize the craft and explain the strange military activity. Unable to reach a conclusion, we discreetly (as we both had no intention if being dismissed as crazy) approached a third party whom we knew had been manning a local radar tower in the county airstrip. We came to understand that the objects had a radar signature and registered intermittently. The radar experienced difficult ing in obtaining flight data, and gave signs characteristic of being electronically jammed. However, it is plausible these objects flew at roughly 2,800-3,000 ft agl. The three of us debated pursuing this in a larger city with a larger radar array for it's airport, but promptly decided otherwise. I was not visited, nor was friend A, but the radar operator claimed to have been met by men claiming to be FBI demanding information regarding what his equipment experienced the day after. This visit coincides with the sighting of a single, black helicopter. This helicopter did appear fielded by the army, and in fact resembled a Lynx. Assuming it was a government sanctioned function, the subject was dropped. That is until it became apparent that animals were missing. Cattle had gone missing from 2 owners, who lost 2 head each. I chose to pursue by approaching a fellow serviceman of rank, who responded in a hostile manner and specifically stated that I would be "...wisest to remember nothing out of the ordinary." Fearing backlash or a psyche evaluation, I dropped it indefinitely.

I find it curious that the black helicopter is specified. If anyone has further information on this helicopter that must be linked to numerous events, please verify my comparison to the British Lynx. - MUFON CMS

Pakistan cricketer suffers from ghost attack in New Zealand hotel

Karachi: Pakistan's promising young allrounder Haris Sohail complained of supernatural presence in his hotel room in New Zealand, forcing the management to shift him to another room.

According to media reports, Sohail woke up in the night scared, insisting there was a supernatural presence in his room. The youngster insisted on shifting to another room and by that time had developed high fever after which the team authorities pressed the hotel management to change his room immediately.

Perhaps this is the first time a Pakistani cricketer has faced a problem of this kind on tour as usually in the past players have been caught up in controversies pertaining to their own behaviour.

Pakistan's World Cup squad is presently in New Zealand to play two one-day internationals and some warm up games before they move on to Australia for the mega event.

On Sunday in their first warm up match, the Pakistanis lost to a New Zealand President XI but captain Misbah-ul-Haq returned from a hamstring injury with a hundred.

A team official said it had been decided to give Misbah rest for the second warm up game as he had just recovered from his injury and the management didn't want to physically tax him out.

The official said Haris Sohail who didn't play the first match and paceman, Bilawal Bhatti would play in the second warm up game on Tuesday.

But the team management has decided to not risk leg spinner, Yasir Shah or tall left arm pacer, Muhammad Irfan until the first one-day international against the Kiwis on January 31. - IBN Live

Where Djinn Grant Wishes

Djinns live in the heart of Delhi: they are spirits tending to the faithful seeking help. On Thursdays, they are busy when thousands turn up with letters for them.

Welcome to the ruins of Feroz Shah Kotla fort: it was built by Sultan Feroz Shah Tughlaq in the fourteenth century and now nestles between a cricket stadium and Delhi’s Ring Road. In the niches and alcoves of its stone walls, believers pray, light candles and diyas, and write letters to djinns, supernatural creatures of Islamic mythology made of fire rather than clay as humans are.

On a Thursday morning, Noorjahan, a mother of five young children, came to Kotla with photocopies of a letter in her hand. She had written to djinns: about how she and her children kept ill. Her house had been sold off and her children didn’t study. She went around Kotla, sticking photos of her children and the photocopies at different spots and praying to the djinns.

Noorjahan’s djinn-worship may remind you of dargahs, but in Kotla the venerated are djinns and not sufi saints or dervishes. Anthropologist Anand Vivek Taneja, an assistant professor of religious studies and anthropology at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee, links djinn worship to modern Indian history.

“It was only in 1977, a few months after the end of the Emergency, that we have the first record of people starting to come to Firoz Shah Kotla in large numbers. This seems significant, given how destructive the Emergency was for the Old City and how many poor and working class people were displaced from the Old City to resettlement colonies across the river,” Taneja wrote in an article.

According to Taneja’s research, the practice of writing to the djinns in Kotla started with renewed vigour in the late 1970s when a fakir named Laddoo Shah came and started living in the ruins.

“Anyone can come here for help-there is no preferential treatment, all are equal. People come with all sorts of difficulties and write to the djinns about them. They attach photocopies of the same letters, so that the djinn under whose jurisdiction the particular case falls, can take it up,” says Mohammed Harun, a resident of Old Delhi.

“Remember, the government of the djinns, is quite like ours. That’s why you have to make sure that the correct department gets your application, and hence the photocopies,” he says.

Near the Jami Masjid, a mosque inside Kotla, there is a pyramid-like structure on which stands the Minar-e-Zarreen, a 13.1-metre, highly polished sandstone pillar. It was originally erected by Emperor Ashoka in Ambala in the third century BC and centuries later lifted to Kotla on the orders of Tughlaq.

Popular belief goes that Laat (pillar) Waale Baba, the chief of the Kotla djinns, dwells in the Minar-e-Zarreen. Letters written to him are left tied to the railing protecting the pillar. People crane themselves putting a hand through the railing, because they believe that a wish asked for while touching the pillar will be granted.

Nirmal Pandey, a security guard at the Feroz Shah Kotla ruins for six years, says people’s faith in the djinns amazes him. He recollects the Muslim family from Jaipur he met at the ruins last year for four Thursdays.

When Pandey asked the family what brought them every week to Kotla, they said their failing business had recovered and their daughter found a groom after writing letters to the Laat Waale Baba. In return of such grace, they visited the ruins on Thursdays to complete seven cycles of djinn-worshipping.

Taneja, who completed his PhD from Columbia University last year with a dissertation on Nature, History, and the Sacred in the Medieval Ruins of Delhi, says djinn worship in the Kotla ruins is socio-politically important for Indian Muslims.”The theological novelty of djinns emerging as venerated saints in contemporary Delhi cannot be understood without also paying attention to the ways in which the state, haunted by the violence of Partition, continues to erase and deaden Muslim landscapes of memory,” he wrote in an article.

Kamar Ahmed would agree. The 60-year-old resident of Shahdara in northeast Delhi comes to Kotla often for quiet afternoons. He has never written to djinns but understands why people have faith in them. “I believe that whenever a section of people are in continued trouble they formulate something or the other to find a way out, and one such thing is this practice of worshipping djinns,” he says. - Abhiheksaha

Thieves broke into casino and stole an empty ATM

Two culprits broke into a casino in Calgary, Canada, on Wednesday morning and made off with an empty ATM. “There’s no money in the machine,” said Staff Sgt. Travis Baker. “If they haven’t gotten into it yet, I’m sure they’re fairly disappointed right now.”

Security at Casino Calgary notified police at around 6am to report what was initially believed to be an armed robbery, resulting in a heavy police presence in the area. Police later determined two offenders in dark clothing had smashed the glass doors of the casino with a crowbar to gain entry to the building, then headed straight for the ATM.

Security footage shows the hapless thieves loading the ATM onto a dolly and making their way outside, the machine at one point toppling on top of one of the crooks as they exit the building. Police say the two got into a waiting vehicle believed to be a silver coloured minivan. Unbeknownst to the duo, the machine was in the process of being moved to a different part of the casino and was out of order and contained no cash, Baker said.

Baker added that this is one of 13 ATM smash-and-grab thefts since August, where offenders use a vehicle or weapon to crash through the doors or windows of a business. In each case, very little to no money has been stolen - the machines are often emptied several times daily and at the end of the business day, which is why it’s puzzling that so many people continue to attempt these thefts. “It’s a very ineffective way to make a living,” he said - NationalPost

Stan Gordon: Mysterious Creatures, UFOs, and Other Strange Incidents Reported Across Pennsylvania During 2014


Mysterious Creatures, UFOs, and Other Strange Incidents Reported Across Pennsylvania During 2014

Strange encounters reported from 51 counties across the Commonwealth

From Researcher: Stan Gordon


Photobucket

Daylight sightings of large cigar shaped objects, encounters with strange creatures such as Bigfoot, black panthers, mountain lions, and Thunderbirds (huge birds with massive wingspans) were among the odd incidents reported by Pennsylvania residents during 2014. Some people also reported strange footprints, fireballs moving across the sky, mysterious animal screams, mystery booms, and many types of UFO observations as well as other paranormal incidents. Numerous observers obtained photos and videos of various phenomena as well.

Crossing my desk were strange accounts from 51 counties of the commonwealth. I also received some reports from neighboring states as well. I have been taking calls from the public since 1969 on such unusual matters, and such reports continue to be called in or e-mailed to me on a regular basis. Witnesses also report their sightings to other researchers or research organizations. I maintain contact with many researchers and UFO and Bigfoot organizations. Some of these sources include the "PA Chapter of MUFON" www.mufonpa.com, Peter Davenport’s “National UFO Reporting Center,” www.nuforc.org, the "Pennsylvania Bigfoot Society," www.pabigfootsociety.com and Lon Strickler at “Phantoms & Monsters,” www.phantomsandmonsters.com/.

It was in 1959 as a ten year old, that I began to keep records of mysterious events that made the news. In 1965, after the Kecksburg, PA UFO-Crash landing I began to conduct in the field investigations of UFOs and unusual animal encounters. In 1969 I began to take calls from the public who wanted to report UFO sightings or other strange incidents. In 1970 I established the first of three volunteer research groups that would investigate these mysterious events across the state for many years. Since then I have investigated thousands of oddities which continue to be reported on a regular basis. After some many years of investigation into these incidents, it might be a surprise to many that I have never personally seen a UFO or Bigfoot.

Since the time I began my on the scene investigations, I learned that while many incidents reported may initially seem quite strange and unusual, when proper investigations are conducted, many UFO sightings, strange animal observations and other paranormal events are determined to have a natural or man-made explanation. Many UFO observations are determined to be misidentifications of meteors, bright stars and planets, re-entering space debris, searchlights, launches of Chinese lanterns, or a meteorological event such as sundog. In some cases Bigfoot has been determined to be large shaggy dogs or bear, and some Thunderbirds were just observations of turkey vultures or blue herons. However not all such yearly reports of strange incidents can be so easily dismissed.

The Chestnut Ridge, which extends through Westmoreland, Fayette and Indiana Counties, has a long history of UFO and Bigfoot sightings as well as a variety of other strange incidents that have taken place, and additional incidents were reported during 2014.

The following are some of the incidents that came to my attention during that year:

On the afternoon of January 29th, two people traveling near Madison observed a cigar shaped object hovering in the sky that “looked like a cruise missile sitting still.” The silent object had no windows, propellers, or markings. In April, during the afternoon, a large solid black rectangular shaped object was observed at tree top level near Donora.

In May, two people traveling at night on a rural road near West Newton saw a tall, dark fur covered man-like creature with glowing eyes step out in front of their car. The driver had to swerve to miss hitting the creature, which stood in the roadway as the car continued on. Bigfoot activity reportedly occurred in Westmoreland, Fayette, Allegheny, Butler, and Schuykill counties.

On a beautiful afternoon in September, a man walking in a rural area of Indiana County observed a cigar shaped object going in and out of a cloud. The object was black in color and was hazy and not sharply outlined. The man was able to photograph the object. Other cigar shaped objects were reported throughout the year across the state.

Researcher Jim Brown investigated a UFO sighting which took place on September 24th, low on the eastern horizon over the Chestnut Ridge near Fairchance in Fayette County. The object was described as a huge hazy, gold-orange colored cigar shaped object. The object was observed for about ten minutes as it hovered over the ridge and then suddenly vanished from sight.

A man taking a walk near Elizabeth Boro on the evening of September 20th, watched a bright spherical object high in altitude quickly zoom across the sky from north to south. The object suddenly dropped straight down from the sky and was lost from view. It was about 15 minutes later when the man heard a loud jet engine noise and went outside to see what he believed was a military jet aircraft moving toward the area where the object was last observed.

Numerous witnesses from different locations report observing huge birds with wingspans estimated to be twelve feet or more in width. The term “Thunderbird” has been used for years to describe these giant flying creatures. In late March near Jeanette, a man taking an afternoon walk observed what at first appeared to be a dark small aircraft in the sky, but it was gliding too fast and the wings were turned up at their ends. He realized that he was watching a huge bird with an estimated wingspan of fifteen feet. In July, a man who was an experienced bird watcher was taking a daylight drive through a rural area of Indiana County. He noticed what looked like a small airplane but when it began to flap its wings slowly, he realized it was the biggest bird he had ever seen, and estimated that the wingspan exceeded twelve feet.

In late September on the other side of Jeanette from where a huge bird sighting was reported in July by another observer, a man walking in his back yard that afternoon had a strange experience. He heard a strange rah-rah-rah animal sound coming from above. He looked up to see moving overhead at about 200 feet, a huge flying creature. The witness said that the creature was dark black and had leathery skin instead of feathers and looked more like a huge bat than a bird. The body of the creature from head to tail was about six feet or more in length, and the wingspan appeared to be at least twelve wide. The witness reluctantly mentioned that what he saw looked more prehistoric than a normal bird. Other similar reports came to my attention from other areas of the state.

In early November, a man was taking a walk in a rural area of Fayette County. He was looking down at a creek and noticed in the distance a very tall man-like figure. What he saw appeared to be all black and the arms slumped down to the side. The head of the figure was hitting the top of a tree branch which the witness estimated would have made it stand to be between 7 and 8 feet tall. The observation only lasted about 20 seconds. The man stated, “no way a man could be that tall.”

I have been investigating the Kecksburg, PA UFO crash-landing incident since the day it occurred in 1965. I received several new leads on the case during 2014. December 9, 2015, will mark the 50th anniversary of this UFO event.

Daily 2 Cents: Unknown Entity in Colorado -- Creature in the Tree -- Frightening Craft Encounter




Unknown Entity in Colorado

5/11/2008 - Colorado: this figure only showed up on my outdoor surveillance camera. It looked like some form of odd looking animal and seemed to shift positions throughout the day. Screen captures in 2 different positions and then an actual picture of the house. Please give me your input. This has had us stumped for many years. No one has an explanation.

**********

Creature in the Tree

When I was a little boy I lived in a tiny two-bedroom house with my parents and four siblings. One night my brother and I were standing at the front window staring outside as it rained. This was a strangely quiet moment for the two of us, despite the lightning and thunder. We just stood there, mesmerized by the patter of the raindrops against the cold glass, drawn to the troubled sky. The greatest part of our attention, however, was focused on the tree.

There was only one tree in our front yard, a cruel-looking rotted thing that never had any leaves. This particular night the wind had whipped it into a horrible frenzy, its spindly black branches raging against the storm as though it resented every stinging drop of rain. Wordlessly we stood, just far enough away from the glass to keep from fogging it. All at once, a terrific streak of lighting lit up the sky, and in the branches, staring down at me-at us-was a deformed creature the likes of which I’d never seen.

Now, all of these realizations came at the same time: 1) It was solid. 2) It stood on two feet, on one particular branch, at one particular part of the tree. 3) It knew we were there. 4) My brother saw it too. 5) I was, simultaneously, seeing it through my own eyes and my brother’s eyes, and it was not the same! To me, the thing appeared to be a grotesque caricature of a farmer-a flattened-down, deformed cartoon farmer wearing a flannel shirt, overalls, and a head-splitting grin, holding a metal pitchfork at his right side.

At the same time, I was aware that what my brother saw in the very same space at the very same time, was a similarly deformed caricature of a skeleton, with thick bones and empty eye-sockets. The lightning flickered and blinked out, and in the fraction of a second it took to get used to the dim glow of the far-off clouds that back-lit the tree, it became clear there was no longer anything there. When one receives a shock that is so tremendous that it surpasses tears-like a spectacular blow to the head, or the unexpected snapping of a bone-there is only the wait. The wait until the violence washes over you. Will you feel pain? Will you lose consciousness? There is only the wait. My head filled with heavy rushing blood that battered the insides of my eardrums. In an excruciatingly slow movement I turned to my brother at my side, my eyes leaving the tree and traveling in an arc that cut across the fence, the porch posts, the window frame, the wall, and finally his face. In his eyes was reflected all the fullness of my experience. We didn’t say a thing to each other. There was no need. I was only six or seven. In the years that followed I have seen nothing remotely like the thing in the tree. My father eventually cut the tree down. Why, I don’t know–we never did tell him.

Frightening Craft Encounter

I was driving alone up into the mountains of Bountiful, Utah. The city sits at the foot of a chain of mountains. They are well traveled and there are many trails and camping spots throughout. I was going up to meet friends at a camping spot 2/3 of the way up the mountain. As I stated there is a lot of traffic, so I thought nothing of lights following me up the road. I was driving a small car,so when I saw lights gaining on me I pulled over as it is a dirt road with narrow spaces and VERY steep drop offs,and there are many four wheel drives and bikes and four-wheelers up there doing their thing. So back to the location, I was at a point called dead man's curve by locals, (with good reason as several people have died by going over the edge).The dirt road makes a u shaped curve with at least a 1000 foot drop.it is not straight down but it is VERY steep. Being in a small car I pulled over to let the big truck following me pass. It did not. It disappeared. It was probably about 100 yards behind me and as I have said, there is nowhere but down to pull over! I got out of my car to see if that was actually what happened!I heard and saw nothing unusual. Because of the brush,(scrub oak ) it was difficult to see down the drop, so I walked down the road away from my car. That is when it get's weird! off to my right I heard something up slope from me (meaning up the mountain above me in the brush) What comes to mind (obviously is a deer or squirrel or a bird, etc.). But then I noticed about four shapes moving in the brush , I thought hmm people hiking, maybe the people in the disappearing truck? I then noticed I could not focus on them,when I looked straight at them I could see nothing! When i defocused my eyes and looked out of the corner of my eye I could see shapes,bi pedal, nothing more.Then I saw a flash, but it was strange just under,the visual spectrum, before,invisibility,but detectable. I then was scared this was NOT normal! I saw them working their way down the hill towards me, as well as heard them working their way towards me so like any half sensible fool I decided to get the hell out of there!I beelined towards my car, at that point I heard a high pitched whine,and I started jogging! I made it to my car it started thank god and i took off! I had to drive up to a turn around point about 400 yards further up the road, or keep going up the mountain about a 1/4 of a mile before I could turn around again. I decided at that point i did not want to be alone anymore so I decided i would chance a dead run back the way I came! While driving (dangerously fast for the terrain) I looked in the rear view mirror and saw not truck lights but several lights well placed enough for me to know it was NOT a truck following me but an airborne craft of some kind! Much bigger than a truck but smaller than say, a Kenworth, it was somewhat round but misshapen I can see it in my mind but I did not focus on details as I was trying to get the hell away from it! It then disappeared again! I reached the turnaround, and stopped,trying to decide what the hell I was going to do! Being on that point in the mountain I could go up? Or go down back to civilization and maybe some help? That clinched it! I decided to go back to where i came from! AT that point the craft (yes i could see it clearly it was a craft, popped up from the drop off that many people have died on, at that point I was done with the whole situation and i punched it back down the mountain, lights following me the whole way just until I reached the houses again. I don't know where it went nor do I care, I feel I am one lucky s.o.b.! I have other stories as well, one of which is verifiable by others. - MUFON CMS

Woman unwittingly drove around for more than a decade with 13 pounds of marijuana in van door

A New Mexico woman got a big surprise this week when she discovered her van had a hidden secret. Melodie Peil bought the 1990 Chevy at an Alamogordo dealership in the early 2000s. Since then, she’s used it to shuttle her four kids and two grandkids all over the state, but that’s not all the eight-seater has been shuttling around.

“Lo and behold, we discovered something that didn’t belong there,” said Peil. Tucked away in the passenger side door of the family-friend van was 13.5 pounds of marijuana. “It was pretty shocking,” she said. Peil said she was having a hard time getting the door to lock, so a friend pried open the panel to fix it. That’s when bricks of more-than decade-old marijuana fell out.

Police say the drugs were likely stashed there by the van’s previous owner, more than 13 years ago. “It was packaged typically how the drug traffickers package marijuana. You know, they wrap it in foil, they wrapped it in saran wrap real tightly,” said Alamogordo Detective Lieutenant Roger Schoolcraft.

Peil didn’t just drive the van to the grocery store and back. It’s gone through at least 10 border patrol checkpoints in New Mexico and it passed every time. Police say it’s likely because the weed was so old and it was packaged so well. Police have now destroyed the pot. As for the previous owner, all the family knows is that he is from Germany. - KRQE

Does Bigfoot Exist in Scotland?


Does Bigfoot exist in Scotland...or, for that matter, the United Kingdom?

There is the story of the 'Big Grey Man of Ben Macdhui' (posted below)...but a witness states she encountered a 7 ft human-like 'black beast' in 1980 near Carmyllie, in the council area of Angus on the Scottish eastern coast.

In recent years, there has been an increase in the number of reported 'Bigfoot' sightings in the United Kingdom. What are people seeing?:


A Bigfoot hunter believes the mythical beast could still be roaming the Angus countryside.

Charmaine Fraser, 41, claims to have seen a Bigfoot near a disused sandstone quarry during a morning walk with her gran’s dog as a child.

She has now gone public on her sighting and wants people to help her prove the existence of the mysterious creatures.

Charmaine, who is orginally from Monikie and now lives in Edinburgh, said she saw the 7ft, black beast with no neck and broad shoulders in Carmyllie in the early 1980s.

She told The Courier: “I was with the dog and we were coming down the path that leads to the track running past the bottom of the property and out to the farm road.

“Just before I got on to the track, the dog stopped suddenly and started to growl, whine and bare her teeth.

“I looked up to see a large black figure further along the track standing with its back to me.

“It was reaching up to a branch on a tree at the side of the track and was tall, of thick build with no neck and wide shoulders.

“I remember standing in shock for a second or two before screaming and turning to run back to the house.

“As I screamed, it slowly started to turn round but I didn’t hang about to see its face.

“Needless to say, my reports of seeing a monster were not taken seriously and dismissed as it probably being a neighbour.

“For years I wondered what it was and have recently found out about other possible sightings further north-east.”

Charmaine, who has a degree in psychology from St Andrews University, said the creature was “like a gorilla standing upright”.

She said she saw a figure in the same area shortly afterwards with a “humanoid shape” and eyes that shone orange when headlights picked it out in the darkness.

Charmaine said the area near the quarry at Carmyllie used to be pine woods but almost all has since been cleared for housing.

She said: “My sister found a den made of branches in the woods, with five or six animal skulls arranged in a semi-circle.

“The strange stories I’ve heard makes me think something could still be there.”

Mum-of-one Charmaine has since joined the British Bigfoot Research team and has urged people in Angus to come forward with their own sightings. - The Courier

THE BIG GREY MAN OF BEN MACDHUI

In 1925, a respected and well known climber Professor Norman Collie reported to a stunned audience at a meeting of the Cairngorm Club his experiences with the Fear Liath Mor (as the 'Big Grey Man' is known locally) on Ben MacDhui in 1891. Collie explained that he had been coming down from the peak when he heard footsteps behind him. At first, shrouded in mist, he rationalized that it must just have been an echo of his own footfalls.

"I was returning from the cairn on the summit in a mist when I began to think I heard something else than merely the noise of my own footsteps. Every few steps I took I heard a crunch, then another crunch as if someone was walking after me but taking steps three or four times the length of my own. I said to myself 'this is all nonsense'. I listened and heard it again but could see nothing in the mist. As I walked on and the eerie crunch, crunch sounded behind me I was seized with terror and took to my heels, staggering blindly among the boulders for four or five miles nearly down to Rothiemurchus Forest. Whatever you make of it I do not know, but there is something very queer about the top of Ben MacDhui and will not go back there again by myself I know."

Collie never returned to the mountain, and to his dying day firmly believed there was "something very queer about Ben MacDhui."

Ben Macdhui is the biggest mountain in the Cairngorms, Scotland and the second highest in the UK. The summit rises from the southern part of a huge sub-arctic upland unique in the British Isles. It is a harsh environment where nothing grows except the hardiest of alpine plants. When the cloud rolls in summits can be shrouded for days...in winter the weak northern sun often does not penetrate the deep glens for weeks.



During the World War II, Peter Densham was a mountain rescue worker, locating and saving pilots who had crashed in the Cairngorms. One day he was at the top of Ben MacDhui when a heavy mist started to fall. He sat and waited for conditions to improve. After a while he began to hear strange crunching noises and suddenly felt a presence close by. He stood up to investigate, but was immediately seized by a feeling of panic. Before he realized what was happening, he was running down the mountain, dangerously close to the sheer cliff edge. He said afterwards ‘I tried to stop myself and found this extremely difficult to do. It was as if someone was pushing me. I managed to deflect my course, but with a great deal of difficulty.’ Densham would later state:

"...tell me that the whine was but the result of relaxed eardrums, and the Presence was only the creation of a mind that was accustomed to take too great an interest in such things. I shall not be convinced. Come, rather, with me at the mysterious dusk time when day and night struggle upon the mountains. Feel the night wind on your faces, and hear it crying amid rocks. See the desert uplands consumed before the racing storms. Though your nerves be of steel, and your mind says it cannot be, you will be acquainted with that fear without name, that intense dread of the unknown that has pursued mankind from the very dawn of time."

Another mountaineer Alexander Tewnion wrote an account of his 1943 experience for The Scots Magazine:

“Of all the experiences that have come my way, one stands out above all others in its strangeness. This was when I shot the Fear Liath Mor, the Big Grey Man of Ben Macdhui. It happened like this. In October 1943 I spent a ten day leave climbing alone in the Cairngorms. Rations were short then, and I carried a revolver and ammunition to shoot any hares or ptarmigan that came my way. One afternoon, just as I reached the summit cairn of Ben Macdhui, mist swirled across the Lairig Ghru and enveloped the mountain. The atmosphere became dark and oppressive, a fierce, bitter wind whisked among the boulders, and, fearing a storm was imminent, I took hurriedly to the Coire Etchachan path. Above Loch Etchachan the path angles easily downhill. I was swinging along at about five miles an hour when an odd sound echoed through the mist - a loud footstep, it seemed. Then another, and another. Spaced at long intervals!”

“I am not unduly imaginative, but my thoughts flashed instantly to the well-known story of Professor Norman Collie and the Fear Liath Mor. Then I felt the reassuring weight of the loaded revolver in my pocket. Grasping the butt I peered about in the mist, here rent and tattered by eddies of wind. A strange shape loomed up, receded, came charging at me! Without hesitation I whipped out the revolver and fired three times at the figure. When it still came on I turned and hared down the path, reaching Glen Derry in a time I have never bettered since. You may ask, was it really the Fear Liath Mor? Frankly, I think it was. Many times since then I have traversed Macdhui in mist, bivouacked on it in the open, camped near its summit for days on end on different occasions - often alone, and always with an easy mind. For on that day I am convinced I shot the only Fear Liath Mor my imagination will ever see.”

Since that time, many people have reported a strange being or felt an overpowering sense of impending doom or panic while on the mountain. One of the most recent encounters occurred in the early 1990’s when three men were walking in a forest just outside Aberdeen. One of the men noticed a human-shaped figure running across the trail not too far ahead of them. He told his friends, and when they all looked in the same direction they saw what they described as ‘a strange, not-quite-human face.’ A few weeks later, the same group was driving in the area when they realized they were being followed by the same tall, dark being. The creature kept pace, even at speeds of 45 miles an hour, but eventually tired and gave up the chase. Again, these men felt a distinct sense of terror and foreboding.

What is the Grey Man of Ben MacDhui? Some say that it’s merely a myth...that climbers of Ben MacDhui are letting the high altitude, grim surroundings and legends get the best of them, making them perceive they see something that isn't actually there. But in many cases, those who have seen and experienced the phenomena are respected scientists and mountain climbers...the sort of witnesses who should not be prone to suggestion.

One theory is that the mountain is home to Bigfoot-like hominids. In fact, in 1965, huge footprints were found in the snow. They measured 14 inches and seemed to show a creature with an enormous five foot stride between footsteps. But the hominid theory has many detractors. While the Cairngorm Mountains are rugged, they are not comparable to the Himalayas or other major ranges where these hominids have been reported to roam. Could a breeding population of humanoids stay mostly hidden in such an area for centuries?

Almost all the reports have a strong paranormal/supernatural aspect to them. In many cases, the Grey Man seems more like a demon or a ghost than a living, breathing creature. Then there is an extraterrestrial or alternate universe theory…namely, that these creatures are able to move in and out between our world and another plane. Many visitors to the mountain notice sensations of strangeness, depression and terror...some have actually noticed ‘boundries’ where these emotions suddenly start and stop. Novelist Joan Grant's experience on the mountain gives a excellent account of this phenomenon. Overcome by sudden fear while climbing the mountain, she became convinced something was pursuing her. She ran down the mountainside and described "I had run about a half a mile when I burst through an invisible barrier behind which I knew I was safe. I knew I was safe now, though a second before I had been in mortal danger; knew it as certainly as though I were a torero who has jumped the barrier in front of a charging bull." Prof. Collie and most all other "victims" of Ben MacDhui described this same feeling of passing through a barrier and becoming "safe". Ben MacDhui also has a strange, almost subliminal "ringing" or singing that is literally felt in the air. This tone has no explainable source other the mountain itself.
