When it comes to British-based cryptozoological entities, beyond much shadow of doubt, Scotland’s Loch Ness Monster is surely the one mysterious creature more than any other that springs to mind. Then, of course, there are the somewhat lesser-known lake-monsters, including Morag of Loch Morar, which just happens to be the deepest freshwater body in the British Isles. And let’s not forget the nation’s Bigfoot-style entities, such as the Man-Monkey, the Beast of Bolam, and the Shug-Monkey.
But, there is another creature of the cryptozoological variety that is seen just about here, there and everywhere in Britain. It is, if you have not guessed, the ABC: the Alien Big Cat.
Granted, the ABCs of the British Isles are out-of-place animals rather than strictly unknown animals, but that hasn’t stopped them from becoming a thriving, undeniable and justified part of British-based Cryptozoology.
And although a great deal of dedicated research and on-site investigative work has been undertaken in this field – and for decades, no less – there is one aspect of the mystery that often gets overlooked. And, you may ask, what might that be? Well, I’ll tell you! It’s the issue of what the British Government – or, at least, elements deep within it – may know about the ABCs.
For years, rumors have circulated to the effect that certain agencies of government and the military have secretly known that large and exotic cats are roaming the wilds of Britain – and the not so wild parts, too! And, that to prevent public panic, they have hidden the hard evidence from one and all – evidence that includes bodies of such creatures either found dead or shot and killed by Army snipers.
True or not, when one goes looking for such data, rumors and stories, one most certainly does not come up empty-handed. And, I’m pleased to say that a good friend of mine in England’s Fortean field, Kithra, has prepared a most thought-provoking post on this very issue of “ABCs and the Government.” It’s a post that you can find right here, and which provides a great deal of information and leads that, just perhaps, may point towards some form of cover-up of the cryptozoological/ABC variety.
