Trolls, Wild Men, Something Else?

Posted by: Nick Redfern on May 26th, 2012

Now and again, each and every one of us in this field comes across a story that has cryptozoological overtones to it, but which doesn’t easily fit into what is generally accepted as Cryptozoology.

This one – my latest post for New Page Books’ Creature of the Month section – dates from 1975 (but was brought to my attention many years later) is a classic example.

Although it involves a late-night sighting in the UK of hairy, wild-looking creatures, it also has aspects of “alien abduction” and “missing time” to it, too.

Definitively cryptozoological? Nope! Undeniably ufological? Same answer! Without doubt Fortean? Yep!

    Reminds me of that Christopher Walken movie, can’t remember the name. Definitely not cryptozoological. Smells of UFO abduction and false memories.
