Posted by: Craig Woolheater on June 12th, 2015

Police and wildlife officials in Sanilac County, Michigan, are warning residents to lock up their pets and livestock and keep their children indoors until they determine what kind of large creature or animal killed a 1,200 pound horse in broad daylight. In this part of Michigan known as “the Thumb,” locals fear the killer could be anything from a coyote to a cougar to a Sasquatch.

The Beast of Bladenboro

Posted by: Nick Redfern on June 10th, 2015

“Although many eye-witnesses described the animal as looking like a black leopard, there were some who said it was more akin to a sleek-looking bear. Adding to the confusion, the tracks of the creature were said to be dog-like, rather than feline in appearance.”

Marsupial Sabre-Tooths, Queensland Tigers, Blue Mountains Lions, and a Most Elusive Crypto-Cutting

Posted by: Karl Shuker on June 8th, 2015

In 1980, a very popular television series screened in the UK was Arthur C. Clarke’s Mysterious World, produced by Yorkshire TV, in which the renowned, eponymous science-fiction writer presented a wide range of unexplained phenomena. Four episodes in this series were devoted to cryptozoological subjects. One of these dealt with sea monsters, one with lake monsters, one with man-beasts, and one with a wide assortment of other mystery creatures – including giant snakes, the king cheetah, the New Guinea dragon, the mokele-mbembe, and the thylacine or Tasmanian wolf Thylacinus cycnocephalus.

From Bigfoot to big cats: What’s rumored to be hiding in Alabama’s woods?

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on June 3rd, 2015

Bigfoot is, of course, the most well-known and widespread strange creature, and reported sightings of the large apelike beast aren’t unheard of in Alabama. They’re common enough that a man named Jim Smith created the Alabama Bigfoot Society, and the group’s website tracks recent sighting reports. One from January near Lake Guntersville, when a woman and her young son were reportedly trapped in a deer stand by a Bigfoot-like creature.

Reviewing the Creature Weekend

Posted by: Nick Redfern on May 8th, 2015

“This past weekend I flew out to Ohio to speak at the annual Creature Weekend, which was organized by Bruce Harrington (and with great help from a fine team of volunteers, including friends Brian and Terrie Seech).

Exploring American Monsters: Arkansas

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on May 6th, 2015

The state of Arkansas in the southern U.S. is known for its lush green mountains, roaring rivers, and University of Arkansas football. It’s the headquarters of the world’s number one retailer, Wal-Mart, and is the birthplace of musician Johnny Cash, and former U.S. President Bill Clinton. It’s also the home of monsters. The most famous of these is the Fouke Monster, a sasquatch-type creature immortalized in the 1972 movie “The Legend of Boggy Creek.” But this series, “Exploring American Monsters,” isn’t about well-known beasts, it’s about the lesser-known creatures the world sees from the corner of its eye, like the Ozark Howler.

Exploring American Monsters: Alabama

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on March 10th, 2015

We all love monsters. Something about an unknown creature (hairy or scaly, huge or small) living amongst us, unknown to science, is unsettling at best, terrifying a worst – and it is exhilarating. This is the first in a series of articles about monsters from each state in America, but not the well-worn monsters. I won’t cover Champ, the Jersey Devil, or Mothman. I’ll also leave Missouri’s Momo alone, as well as Arkansas’ Fouke Monster, and the chupacabra. This series is about the lesser-known critters that crawl through our nights, and stalk the periphery of the human world.

Every state has reports of these less publicized, but inherently frightening monsters, most of which have something seriously wrong with them. Like this monster from our first state, Alabama – the Alabama White Thang.
