; Phantoms and Monsters: Pulse of the Paranormal

Thursday, February 08, 2024


A young woman is outside in the yard when she hears footsteps coming from all directions. Later, she sees an unknown man walking up and down her road for several hours, then disappears.

The following account was forwarded to me:

"I live in a small wooded area in a suburb of Lexington, Kentucky. In November 2023, I was taking my dog outside. My dog’s legs were going out and she couldn’t walk very well because she was old. So she’s taking a while. I stand out there with her to make sure she’s okay. She liked to go in the backyard to do her business. She’s doing said business, and I hear footsteps in the woods. I assume it’s a deer or something and just tell my dog to hurry up. The steps sounded like they were all over the place. Close then far then close again. Once they sounded really close, I got my dog inside. Since I’m an idiot, I went back outside to check it out.

Again, I hear footsteps and again, they’re all over. Then it was suddenly really close and I saw a parting in the bushes and it was HUGE. I ran to my house as fast as I could (and I think I sprained my ankle while doing so) and didn’t look back.

The next day, I’m taking my dog out again. This time, I heard a sort of 'whispering' from all around me in the woods. Once again, told my dog to hurry up and got inside.

Maybe this part is unrelated, but two weeks ago, an old man in a bright orange jacket, a cane, and a hat was walking up and down my road back and forth for about 4 hours. It was like 20 degrees out that day. As soon as I pointed him out to my mom, he was gone, never saw him again. My house has cameras, so I went back through the footage to see if I could find videos of him. You know what I found? Nothing. Absolutely nothing. Despite me seeing him on our cameras multiple times.

I don’t know what it is. I’ve just had a lot of strange encounters since the day I took my dog out and it’s freaking me out.

To explain why seeing the guy was really weird. I don’t really live in a neighborhood and I don’t have any neighbors actually. There’s my house, then the road, and a lot of people have died on my road so it’s not a place people walk on, there’s no sidewalk or anything, just a road then woods. So seeing some guy walking on it for hours was really strange and not at all something I’ve seen while living there. It might not be related and I might be paranoid or on edge, just a lot of strange occurrences that happened since that first one and something isn’t right." S

NOTE: It seems to me that this witness observed a manifestation of a spiritual or unknown energy. If there have been many deaths on that particular road then, I assume, there is a possibility that it may be haunted. I believe that it may very well be related to the footsteps in the woods and yard. Lon

According to First Nations legend, the Thunderbird is said to have a wingspan the length of two canoes with the ability to deafen people with the sound of its flapping wings.

In March 2010, the late Jc Johnson of Crypto Four Corners contacted me about an incident where twenty-four sheep were mutilated at a farm near Hogback, New Mexico, on the Dine' Navajo Reservation. The livestock owner explained that there were large talon marks but very little blood and no evisceration. The prints on the ground were only seen in the corral, not anywhere else on the farm. Was this an attack by a large flying predator? Why were the carcasses left intact?

Jc mentioned that a large cryptid bird or pterosaur may have been responsible for this act. That theory is not as far-fetched as it may initially sound. For many generations, people in New Mexico and parts of Texas say they've seen birds so big they seem prehistoric. There is convincing anecdotal evidence that many of these legendary winged creatures are connected to modern sightings.

I believe that many of these winged cryptids are corporeal beings that can manifest on our plane of existence. Their point of origin and means of conveyance is speculative. But this is the reason why we research and investigate this phenomenon. The search continues.

So, listen to the reports, and form your conclusions about what these monstrous birds are. If you have questions, feel free to post them in the live chat. I will do my best to answer everyone.
