Daily 2 Cents: Possible Tasmanian Tiger on Video -- 'Has anyone seen the hairless being...?' -- Birth of World's 1st Identical Twin Puppies

Possible Tasmanian Tiger on Video

A rather shaky video filmed in Adelaide Hills earlier this year allegedly shows a live Tasmanian tiger.

Although it was thought that some thylacines may have managed to survive in the wild for several decades afterwards, by 1982 authorities had declared the species officially extinct.

This hasn't stopped people from continuing to report sightings of the animals, however.

The latest such report, which hails from Adelaide Hills on the Australian mainland, centers around video footage of a dog-like animal with black stripes which was spotted outside some houses.

"We believe our footage to be footage of a small thylacine moving around through the Adelaide Hills," said amateur researcher Neil Water of the Thylacine Awareness Group.

"You can see the body of the animal, it does appear to have some sort dark discolouration which may or may not be stripes. It has a long, stiff, pointy tail."

"Where the tail connects to the body is very wide at the base which is typical of the thylacine." Click for video - Live thylacine allegedly caught on camera


'Has anyone seen the hairless being...?'

Deltona, FL - 2016-06-17: I have always been a magnet to sightings and the supernatural. This one was filmed and even shows the alien move and cloak at the same time. I ran then. I had more experiences with the kind that have hair like the ones in the same picture. Before I went to this spot to get exercise that my DR ordered due to my disabilities worsening, I felt like something was drawing me to go there. It is hard to explain. I have a lot of film that is really good and shows at least five beings. I have been followed ever since and I don't know what to do. Before I found this place in the woods there was a lot of strange happenings in my house and my family members had encounters themselves. My daughter has told me of the classic abduction scenario. She said a skinny, grey, naked person touched her head with a stick when her mommy was holding her outside. My father and I then had a class A encounter with a being in the house. It was fat and short and had a sort of hooded cape.This guy was definitely malevolent.The ones in this picture are benevolent. If they wanted to hurt me they could have. All I can say is we are not alone and I believe these beings are inter-dimensional. I truly feel like I am in an episode of the X files. I hope someone will help answer my main question... Has anyone seen the hairless being before? - MUFON CMS


Man Amputates Woman's Finger...Then Drinks Blood

SUAMICO, Wis. (WBAY) – A Brown County man is behind bars for amputating a woman’s finger with a machete last month.

Warning: some of the details in the story below are disturbing.

Jonathan Schrap, 24, of Suamico is charged with “mayhem” and “reckless injury” for the incident that happened at his house on August 27, where he chopped off a friend’s pinky, gashed her arm and drank her blood—according to a criminal complaint.

Schrap’s body tattoos identify him is a member of the Juggalos, which is the name the band Insane Clown Posse (ICP) gives to its followers. Court documents say that Schrap and his friends were staging a “ritualistic memorial” to commemorate a fellow Juggalo who died one year prior.

Police say Schrap was with his childhood friend Nick Laabs; fellow Juggalo Preston Hyde, who is a local “horror-core” rapper going by the name “Bloody Ruckus”; and 27-year-old Shelby Neuens. Neuens told police that the group was talking about blood-drinking cult rituals the Saturday morning it happened.

The criminal complaint explains it like this:

“Shelby [Neuens] had volunteered to let Jon [Schrap] drink her blood. Jon had taken a machete and made an approximate one inch laceration on her right side forearm. She was bleeding profusely… Jon filled up a shot glass with her blood and drank her blood.”

Soon after, the group began talking about severing a finger. Again, Neuens volunteers, telling the men they could cut off her pinky. She stated that she was not using drugs or alcohol before this happened.

Once again, Schrap grabbed the machete. “Jon’s second strike with the machete took the pinky clean off,” says the criminal complaint. “All the way to the palm.”

“Jon then placed the finger in his freezer where he said he would cook it and eat it later,” the complaint continues. “The group then attempted to stop the bleeding by using a car cigarette lighter which failed. They then used a blowtorch.”

Neuns told officers that the blowtorch wounds hurt worse than her pinky being severed.

Later that night, Neuens went to her boyfriend’s house and showed him the injuries. His mother heard the story and made Neuens go to the emergency room. Staff at Saint Mary’s Hospital called police, believing she’d taken part in cult initiation.

Police say Neuens was agitated and said she didn’t want anyone to be charged because the ritual was voluntary.

After taking statements, police arrested Schrap and Laabs and tried unsuccessfully to track down “Bloody Ruckus,” whose real name is Preston Hyde. The complaint states that Hyde’s neighbor saw him run from his house when he saw police.

Neuens told police Hyde recorded a video of the whole thing. - Man charged after Green Bay Juggalos host blood-drinking ritual, cutting off woman’s finger


Birth of World's 1st Identical Twin Puppies

An Irish wolfhound has just given birth to the first identical twin puppies on record, delivered by veterinarian Kurt de Cramer at South Africa's Rant en Dal Animal Hospital.

The pups are a rare example of monozygotic, or 'identical', twinning in mammals - something that’s been reported in horses and pigs before, but appear to be incredibly uncommon in most species except for humans and armadillos.

Twins can be either monozygotic (identical), meaning they develop from the same zygote (or egg cell), which is fertilised by the same sperm cell; or they can be dizygotic (fraternal), meaning they develop from two different egg cells, each fertilised by separate sperm cells.

When de Cramer delivered the pups from the same placenta via a Caesarean section, he suspected he had the first monozygotic dogs known to science on his hands.

"When I realised that the puppies were of the same gender and that they had very similar markings, I also immediately suspected that they might be identical twins having originated from the splitting of an embryo," he told Melissa Hogenboom from BBC News.
