Bizarre! BEAR VANISHES After Apparent Gunshot Strike by British Columbia Hunter


A British Columbia bear hunter describes an apparent 'kill shot' that he observed on a bear he sighted at less than 30 yards. He and his partner never find the carcass or blood, as if it vanished.

"In 1999, in spring, I was black bear hunting with a buddy. We hunted for spring bears for about 10 years. Most years we would punch two tags each and we enjoyed sausage from the meat, my favorite is pepperoni and garlic oil.

This was a sunny spring afternoon heading west on the Beaver / Bear Road east of Prince George, British Columbia. We see a tall lanky black bear happily shuffling towards us on the right side of the road. This animal had a beautiful dark chocolate, nearly black, long shiny healthy coat of hair and a white star of hair on his chest.

We stopped our vehicle and I got out. I got low and centered the crosshairs on the brisket. It was a perfect head-on shot at 30 yards or less. I use the 180-grain 300 Win Mag round. I saw the impact. The animal both turns to the ditch at the right and flip-slash rolls in the air dropping out of sight. We both move in and nothing. No bear. The forest road had an 18-inch high or greater berm on the edge and dropped four to five feet to a marshy area that was heavily covered in the prickly low brush which covered porous ice, about three to four feet thick. The animal should have been right there in the ditch dying or dead and it was not. Not even a drop of blood. No tracks. There was a very clear view for 100 yards around this spot. We both were experienced enough to know where it should be but nothing. It was as though this thing evaporated into thin air. I even checked a culvert but it was an 18-inch pipe that was two to two-thirds full up with ice.

I called back to my buddy who found a tuft of hair on the road. It was unusual hair and it even had a mix of white hair in it. There was no blood. No tracks. This bear had simply vanished. The hair confirmed to me that my shot hit its mark.

I had practiced often in those days including at point blank. It seemed practical to me to do so. A shot and seemingly dead bear could jump up as you move in close. I had even practiced turning the rifle sideways to sight alongside the barrel for accurate up-close shots. This practice was recommended to me by a friend who was a professional guide for his dad's outfit.

The entire event was unusual. The bear did seem oblivious to our approach. It also seemed to be happily shuffling a long leg, if a bear could skip and hop like a kid does. The back of it was easily four to five feet off the ground. I would like to hear your response."

NOTE: According to the description of the bear's demeanor, is it possible that this may have been a 'time slip' or 'interdimensional' scenario? Was the hunter peeking into another dimension or reality where the bear actually existed? He described seeing the bear reacting to the gunshot strike. If it was in another dimension, there should not have been a visual reaction by the bear or evidence of hair. Did the bear somehow 'enter' into another dimension after receiving the gunshot? Very bizarre encounter. Your thoughts? Lon

In this episode of Phantoms & Monsters Radio, we present an Alien Abduction Roundtable with guests Preston Dennett, Lynn Wallington, & Dolly Safran. Please like, subscribe, and comment.

Preston Dennett began investigating UFOs and the paranormal in 1986 when he discovered that his family, friends, and co-workers were having dramatic unexplained encounters. Since then, he has interviewed hundreds of witnesses and investigated a wide variety of paranormal phenomena. He is a field investigator for the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON), a ghost hunter, a paranormal researcher, and the author of 28 books and more than 100 articles on UFOs and the paranormal. Several of his books have been Amazon UFO bestsellers.

He has appeared on numerous radio and television programs, including Midnight in the Desert with Art Bell, Coast-to-Coast AM, and also the History Channel’s Deep Sea UFOs and UFO Hunters. His research has been presented in the LA Times, the LA Daily News, the Dallas Morning News, and other newspapers.

 His website can be found at www.prestondennett.weebly.com


Lynn Wallington lives a life amidst the strange and unusual. Her first paranormal experience happened at a young age, where she saw her great grandmother sitting at the edge of her bed one night, only to find out the next morning that she had passed away.

Her interest in the paranormal and how it affects people led her to get a degree in Psychology from the University of Massachusetts. After Lynn graduated, she worked for Harvard Medical School doing research and working with clients who had Schizophrenia and other forms of psychosis.

In her 30’s Lynn had her first experience with a UFO, and shortly after had an experience with a mantis being. Her interest in the field of ufology was sparked. Using her own experiences and her background in Psychology, she helped to develop and run the Support Program for experiencers.

Lynn is also certified as a Regression Therapist and has worked with experiencers to help recover memories and understand the role these experiences have played in their life.


In January 1973, fourteen-year-old Dolly Safran gazed out the window of her home near the Florida Everglades. Without warning, a UFO dropped from the sky and hovered in her backyard. To her shock, Dolly could see thin, gray-skinned figures with large dark eyes staring back at her. Frightened, she dived under her bed to hide. At that moment, her bedroom filled with a blazing blue light. The next thing she knew, morning had arrived. She was lying on the floor wearing somebody else’s pajamas. She had been taken, again. This was not her first episode of missing time. It had happened many times before. Only this time, something different happened. Dolly remembered. In fact, she remembered everything.

Over the next few days, Dolly recalled being taken onboard the craft, where she was examined by Gray ETs. She then had a long conversation with them, was given a tour of the craft, and was told she would soon be contacted again. Only a few days later, the ETs returned and took her onboard again. Dolly had no fear as she spoke with the grays, who reminded her that she had been contacted many times before. She was asked if she would like to work with them and learn from them, and what she would like to learn? Amazed by the opportunity, Dolly chose to learn how to pilot the craft. The ETs agreed.

So began Dolly’s lifelong experiences with the extraterrestrials. She recalled all of her earlier childhood experiences and finally understood what had been happening to her. She remembered being taken to another planet where she and other children were taught by the grays about a wide variety of subjects: science, history, philosophy, spirituality and more. More encounters followed.

A Paranormal Life welcomes Anna Maria Manalo, a paranormal author, screenwriter, & storyteller. Bernadette McDaniel (Host)

Filipina-American Anna Maria Manalo was raised in suburban San Juan, an hour north of metropolitan Manila. During childhood, her neighborhood was an active hotspot for ghosts, apparitions and other entities. These experiences led to her interest in the supernatural after her father’s tragic death from a demonic infestation in their home.

Anna is an author of paranormal suspense memoirs and anthologies. She specializes in hauntings brought about by catastrophic events such as WWII, acts of human violence, odd and strange entities that appear in remote, isolated or abandoned places or beings created by human thought called Tulpas. Anna believes the entities that appear in Filipino folklore have been on earth eons before the appearance of human civilization.

A therapist by profession, Anna began writing in her spare time as a screenwriter. She has placed in several screenplay competitions for her highly atmospheric and suspenseful scripts.

Now an author, Anna writes creative nonfiction memoirs and anthologies based on first-person accounts garnered from people she has interviewed all over the globe as a travel photographer and antique collector. Anna’s books are all rated at 4.4 to 5.0 on Amazon.

With a cinematic storytelling style and characters based on real-life witnesses, Anna creates books that fully immerse readers in the experience of the phenomena as she takes them into terrifying landscapes. Her writing style has been likened to Chilean author Isabelle Allende and Nobel Laureate and Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel.
