Daily 2 Cents: Sasquatch Hunters' Camp Attacked -- Tall Ancient Skeleton Discovered -- Police Respond to Hostile Alien Reports
Sasquatch hunters say they were attacked by bigfoot
The Sasquatch didn't like it when explorers in the Sam Houston National Forest drew too near him last week, and in his fury he hurled giant logs at the curious humans.
That's according to Wes Germer, host of the Sasquatch Chronicle podcast, whose team ventured into the East Texas Piney Woods with the guide of Bob Garrett and sons, a Conroe family of self-declared "cryptozoologists," who have tracked legendary creatures through the woods north of Houston for years, and who document thier findings in various bigfoot blogs.
The expedition didn't photograph the monsters—it seems the Sasquatch is bashful before cameras, as it has never appeared in photo before-- but that doesn't mean the researchers didn't get close to their mysterious subjects.
"My heart was just pounding in my throat," said Germer on his Sunday podcast as he recounted his chilling brush with the unknown giant.
In the early night, the forest was tame as Germer and Garrett sat and chatted in camp while the crew was out exploring with flashlights and night vision goggles. Then the noise came.
"We hear this thing crash through the brush. And then we hear this thing start crashing, just crash! Crash! Crash! Crash," Germer said. "And you can hear it walking and you can hear it breaking branches as it's going."
At first he said he was upset that one of his team members was making such a racket, and thought it strange that someone would try to navigate without a light. But quickly he noticed the faint glow of the lights far away and all of his team gathered in the distance. Garrett announced: this forest creature wasn't one of them.
Then the giant bolted off, and plowed fiercely through the dense brush with astonishing speed.
"This thing moved so fast, it probably covered 100, 150 yards like nothing," Germer said.
The commotion settled, and Germer estimated the creature was just 30 or 40 feet beyond the tree line of the campsite, but the thicket obscured it entirely. Garrett, a seasoned East Texas tracker, loaded his gun and ducked into the brush to catch a glimpse of the monster. Germer followed, but a glimpse would never come.
Because as the two men neared the spot where they heard the beast lurking, a noise grew in the air, like the beating of helicopter blades coming straight for them.
"And I knew what it was. It was a log coming, and it was a big log, and you could hear it being thrown," Germer said. "And I ducked down because I thought for sure it was going to hit one of us in the head."
"But it hit a tree right in front of us, and I just [couldn't] believe that [was] happening. I knew what just threw that log at us. I knew what just paced us in," he said.
The two men were lucky to come out with their lives, and Garrett declared the beast had issued them a warning. But it wasn't the only time Sasquatch threw logs at the unwelcome intruders to his forest domain. Germer recounted a time in the very same trip when a log crashed down into the spot where his girlfriend had sat just moments before.
Garrett also reports multiple instances of Sasquatch log-throwing in the Piney Woods on his blog, Sasquatch Mountain. According to one post, he and his son once took shelter in their truck as it was bombarded by multiple Sasquatches in an abandoned campsite left ransacked by the creatures.
"We could hear them run back and forth and the tree limbs and broken trees flew in to camp, nonstop," he wrote in 2014.
In the end, Germer's Texas trip was lush with close encounters. One of his team members and podcast cohosts, Shannon Legro, reported the incredible sound she described as an owl that "went into a monkey."
"We heard an owl go off, and we were like 'yea, ok that's an owl.' Well whatever decided to go off after that, it sounded more like you were in a primate house, and it just sounded like a monkey trying to be an owl, and then it sounded more like and owl after that. It was incredible. It was awesome," she said.
Germer also witnesses the strange sound, but he reflected on his experience to determine that it didn't have the ring of a Sasquatch, and in fact he doesn't believe it was one. So what could it be? "A freakin' werewolf," he suggest. - Sasquatch hunters near Houston say they were attacked by bigfoot
Tall Ancient Skeleton Discovered
Bulgarian archaeologists have discovered a tall man’s skeleton during rescue excavations of the ancient Greek and Roman city of Odessos in the downtown of the Black Sea city of Varna.
The large human skeleton has been found in a grave partly located under the fortress wall of Odessos, which is being excavated by archaeologists from the Varna Museum of Archaeology (also called Varna Regional Museum of History).
The skeleton is dated back to the late 4th century or the early 5th century AD, according to Dr. Valeri Yotov who is in charge of the rescue excavations of Varna’s ancient city of Odessos.
It has been found near the St. Nikolay Church, just 20 meters away from the site where a 5th century earthen jar was discovered in January 2015 by construction workers during water supply and sewer rehabilitation, an event that triggered the rescue excavations of the so called Varna Largo, the passenger zone on the central Knyaz Boris I Boulevard.
Last week, the Varna archaeologists found a previously unknown part of the Odessos fortress wall as well as part of another earthen jar and a hand mill from the late Antiquity. Read more at Archaeology in Bulgaria
Police respond to reports of hostile aliens
Alien activity in the western central English county of West Midlands is apparently keeping police officers there pretty busy.
According to the West Midlands Police Department’s website, “As part of its pledge to be as open and transparent as possible, West Midlands Police publishes all FOI requests onto its website as a matter of course.” It continues, “And while the act enables important statistics and information to be published, it has also highlighted some of the force’s more unusual call outs.”
One FOI request asks, “Please, under the freedom of information act can you tell me how many alien abductions have been reported in the West Midlands over past three years, breaking it down for each area? Can you also give details on each case and how the report was resolved?”
The department says it has received twenty-three alien-related reports during the past four years. How these numbers compare to police departments in other parts of the world is unknown. But it seems like a lot, considering that these aren’t simple calls about strange lights in the sky.
Two calls were from people who were either being attacked by aliens, or were reporting an alien home invasion.
Three of the calls were from people seeking police assistance because extraterrestrials were allegedly in the process of abducting them, or coming to abduct them.
Four calls were from people who reported that they were either talking to aliens or hearing aliens talking to them.
The remaining fourteen calls were from people reporting that they had seen extraterrestrials in West Midlands.
The police department points out, “Every effort is made to ensure that the figures presented are accurate and complete. However, it is important to note that these data have been extracted from a number of data sources used by forces for police purposes. The detail collected to respond specifically to your request is subject to the inaccuracies inherent in any large scale recording system. As a consequence, care should be taken to ensure data collection processes and their inevitable limitations are taken into account when interpreting those data.”
The twenty-three reports provided by the West Midlands police resulted from its own system search using the terms “alien” and “alien abduction.” So it’s conceivable that the department has received more than twenty-three extraterrestrial-related reports, which might contain other terms like “extraterrestrial” and/or “E.T.” - West Midlands police respond to reports of hostile aliens
