The Three Gorges Monster

Dubbed the “Three Gorges Water Monster” this footage was filmed in 2019 and went viral leading people in China to believe they had their own Loch Ness Monster. Chinese officials stated that first it was most likely a giant water snake or eel and then it switched gears to say that two separate long black objects of debris had been recently pulled out of the water.

The debris was described one as long black tube and the second as a long black piece of rubbish. Hmmm…what are the odds here that as a matter of coincidence not one, but two objects fished out of the water, that is suspicious to me. It’s like they were doubly making sure it was explained quickly. What do you think about this footage? Do you think it’s an A eel, crocodile or debris?

My feeling is that it appears to be swimming not just floating in and with the waves.

Alan…The Cryptid?

I enjoy my daily forays into the forest. Even though I may be searching for Bigfoot, I like to learn everything about what I may find out there, a certain tree, a stone wall, birds, and even any strange cryptids that could be lurking.

I thought I knew all the cryptids who call the forest their home but it looks like I overlooked one, and her name is Alan. That’s right Alan.

Alan is a cryptid that everyone agrees calls the forests of the Philippines home, but Information on its description varies extensively. Some information I found said they are only female and other sources say they are both. They are a mythical, flying humanoid. They have long tongues, feathered necks, scales on part of their limbs, wings, and their toes and fingers are reversed. Their face is described in one tale as female and in another as having a wrinkled bird like face.

Their diets are also described differently depending on what site you read. Some say they eat only humans that are alive, but strangely dead ones they give gifts too.

And Wikipedia describes them as eating, (if you’re eating you may want to finish before I go on, go ahead I’ll wait)……………..

Okay the great and powerful wiki states that they eat (gulp) drops of menstrual blood, miscarried fetuses, (I warned you) and other reproductive waste (wth?) Still with me? I know that part was a little rough. I think this picture best suits them after that paragraph. Not the beautiful harpies depicted above.

I have also read that instead of eating, they take the reproductive waste and create a human from one that will have supernatural abilities.

This is definitely an interesting cryptid to continue to research as there are so many different theories on what they could be. Let me know if you have any information on them you’d like to share.

Overall I have to say I’m glad they reside in the Philippines and not New England, since I don’t know whether they want to eat us or grow us. I’ll take my chances with Bigfoot, Puckwudgies and Thunderbirds thank you…

Witness Encounter…Maralyn

The encounter

My son was driving, my husband Bob was in the front seat, I was sitting in the back seat with my 2 year old in his car seat & my daughter-in-law. We were going from Grants Pass, Oregon, to Crescent City, Ca. on a dirt back road thru the timbers of north California. Bob & Shawn looked at each other in surprise & they both said “What the —- was that?” So I cranked my head around to see what shocked them, and I only saw what I thought was about a 4 year old boy with a huge sweatshirt on. It was dark in color like a hood on it’s head not showing his face. The sleeves were extra long covering the hands. The thing that struck me was the crest on top of it’s head. Neither Bob or Shawn saw this little guy. So I looked away. When I looked again it was just gone.

We were probably about a block away from what we saw. Shawn & Bob wouldn’t really say just what they saw. I wanted Shawn to slow down when he got to the place I saw the little one. That didn’t happen instead Shawn speeded up at we went by. I couldn’t see it the bushes had been stomped down by the little one or if the Big one picked it up over the bushes.

Another strange thing about this was a woman sitting in the drivers seat reading a book about 30 feet across the road. She didnt even look up when we went by her.

Years later we were camping with our grandsons & telling stories. I told about the little big foot I had seen. I described everything as I have here. When my son showed up with their camp trailer Caleb went over and put an oversized sweatshirt on and came around my camp Trailer sideways. It looked just like I’d seen except the crown was rounded not straight like I remembered. That is when I realized it was a toddler bigfoot I had seen. I remembered a video I had seen where a farmer had set up night cameras to see who was eating their apples after dark. It was a female bigfoot with a tot in her arms. That picture stuck in my head. It showed a definite crown or ridge going front to back on top of it’s head.

Amazing. Do you remember if you were feeling scared or curious? Did you ever go back afterward and look around?

I wanted to but there was no way Shawn would even slow down, let alone go back. Not after he saw what he & Bob both saw. That’s where the fear was. I figured there had to be foot prints or stomped down bushes, something. Now I can’t even find the right road we were on, on the map.

About 2 years ago Shawn and his hunting crew had an incident. They were hunting in a remote area of Lick Creek, Idaho. One person in his group was down trying to scare the deer up to the hunters. He had no weapon with him what so ever. Something Huge let out an echoing scream. It didn’t take Dave any time at all to find Shawn and the boys. He was scared to death. So was Shawn.

They stayed together and went up on the ridge. Shawn said there was a pile of animal bone up there. It must have been his feeding grounds. I’m going to keep trying to get Bob to take me up there & just go 4 wheeling where it feezable to go. This summer, but I won’t go by myself. Bob’s my defender. LOL We’ll see.

Interview with a Witness…Jay Masters

This sighting took place in late April of 2005 in Nassahegon State Forest in Burlington, Connecticut.

My son, who was 6 years old at the time, was home on April vacation from first grade, asked if we could go for a walk in the woods.

This was around midday on a very sunny day. One of the first real warm days of the Spring. I took him to a trail that runs parallel To the Lamson’s Corner Cemetery.

The hike was nice and uneventful until we were walking back up to the trailhead. All of the sudden we heard a loud grunt as a large pine tree came crashing down behind us, complete with its root system.

My son screamed and we both whirled around to see what had happened. We both looked at where the tree had fallen from and it was on the north side of the trail about ten feet behind us.

As I took a step to see where the tree had been uprooted from, curious as to what had caused it to fall I saw movement and noticed what I can only describe as a giant CHIMPANZEE almost perfectly hidden in the shadows of the other trees as its hair was jet black.

Its eyes were also very dark almost like oil with a silvery glint to them. My son screamed again and I felt like my feet were made of cement and the creature just sort of tilted his head and turned around and glided away and then either blended into the deeper shadows of the woods or dropped down. Regardless, it was like the woods had swallowed it whole.

I say it glided away instead of ran because it’s movements were so smooth that it reminded me of watching someone using an Eliptical Trainer.

We clearly saw its face which had a mouth that rounded out from its face. The skin was grayish and not covered in hair.

It looked to me, and I admittedly suck at guaging height, that it stood about six foot five to six foot eight. It was very lithe and did not have the girth that most associate Sasquatch as having like the creature from the Patterson Gimlin Film. I’d best describe it as having the build of an NBA Power Forward.

I knew it wasn’t a bear because I grew up in those woods and had run across many black bears in my life, both on this trail, and in other parts of this State Forest.

I had seen a black bear rear up once on its hind legs when I surprised one foraging in some thick brush. Bears look awkward when they are on two legs. They almost move like a man wearing a really awkward bear suit.

This creature my son and I saw that day moved fluidly and almost preternaturally. Like I said it looked like it was gliding above the forest floor. I say this because it made no sound as it ran away from us and the forest floor here is pretty thickly layered with leaves and branches and such.

The whole encounter was maybe ten seconds even though it felt like hours to me. When it turned away and glided away it was like I was waking up from a hypnotic trance.

I felt a rush of pure terror overcome me and I scooped up my crying, terrified son into my arms and ran with him the rest of the way and didn’t stop until we got back to my car.

My son did not voluntarily go into the woods again for almost ten years. I went back to the area maybe a week later and found a footprint in dried mud which I will attach to you. Just remember it was taken with a flip phone camera and this was 2005 so it will not win any National Geographic awards.

I thank Jay for being comfortable with sharing his encounter with me. Encounters are very personal, and for some? Life changing and traumatic, so I never take the trust lightly. If you have one to share me please email me sasysquatchgirl.com

Pedicuredolia…

Pareidolia; the human ability to see shapes or make pictures out of randomness such as seeing shapes in clouds, Bigfoot in stumps.

You’re probably wondering right now why I’m defining Pareidolia while showing my jazzy sneakers measuring print sizes. Well I do have an explanation.

It’s a fact that when you are out in the woods squatching you have Bigfoot on the brain. So when we hear noises or see some weird looking shading by a stump you at first do a double take to see if it’s Bigfoot. My self included.

We sometimes blowup an image until we can actually make it look like a Bigfoot face or body. Sometimes we film a blobsquatch, as some call it. I’m sure we have all done that at least once.

But now I’m experiencing a new kind of Pareidolia , and It’s one I constantly have to check myself out there in the woods from seeing too. That’s why I thought I’d write about it, see if anyone struggles with it. I call it pedicuredolia. When you see Bigfoot prints on every kind of outdoor terrain. It’s made worse for me because I have tiny feet, so every print looks like Ronald McDonalds big feet.

The above picture is not a Bigfoot print, (well at least I don’t think so) but I took the picture because when I first turned the corner and caught a quick flash of this by the river my brain immediately went to…its a Bigfoot footprint. Realistically I knew it was not his print, but that’s what I was looking for so my brain found a way to give it to me.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying I haven’t cast a print or two, or found and photographed other footprints that I stand by. That I’m as sure as I can be that they are the real deal. But after the initial, “Omg it’s a print! ” I try to take in the whole area and check that it could actually be somewhere that could sustain him or a family of them.

It’s amazing when I see these perfect casts because mine are not that pretty ever. Here’s a few perfect examples. I don’t know how your prints work out but mine do not look this sexy. They could definitely use a pedicure.

I have been lucky to find some good prints. Most of my adventures are outside a park area. Paths many don’t use because they aren’t marked.

The best advice I was given was to cast every print you aren’t sure about, take photos, videos, measure etc and document. Go over the whole area because if he can’t survive in that area for awhile and probably isn’t his print. Be open and ready to hear that maybe it isn’t a bigfoot and actually is Ronald McDonalds…

UFOs, Monsters, Bigfoot and George Kennedy Oh My! (Demonwarp Review)

Demonwarp was a 1988 gem starring George Kennedy and directed by Emmett Alston.
A man (Kennedy) and his daughter were attacked by Bigfoot the daughter was taken by them and the father is now out on a mission to find her. At the same time a small group of friends are heading up to a cabin in the woods so one of them can find their missing uncle unbeknownst  to the rest of the group,and unfortunately for them, they find out the hard way why they’re really there.
The woods in the film are called the Demon Woods because there have been many strange occurrences reported for hundreds of years. The film was actually shot on location in Topanga Canyon in Los Angeles where despite its filming of monsters of all shapes and sizes have a relatively low record of actual sightings.
Bigfoot in this movie actually has a good look unlike some and you see a lot of him in the film.
This movie is clearly R rated because like all eighties horror movies there is gore and boobs aplenty. all writers in the eighties know not to leave home without them. 
I was actually going along enjoying this movie for the eighties cheese that it was until the last fifteen minutes. Then everything went bat shit crazy.
At the end the movie everything veered off in a different direction, several directions actually if I’m being honest.
All of a sudden there is a cave, some aliens, and even a priest around. At this point you have to watch because how can you not. I’m not going to give away to many spoilers but definitely hang in till the end or you will miss all the fun. 
Between 1 and 10 I give this a 4 because I definitely can’t say I wasn’t entertained.

You can find Demonwarp for free on YouTube.

Sticks and Stones

“Sticks and stones may break my bones

But I don’t think a Squatch will ever hurt me

They bang and knock

To warn us off

When I’m sitting at the creek

I think I see them peek From behind the biggest tree

I’m studying him

He’s studying me

I wonder what we’ll learn

If we stop making knocks

And ticking him off

I wonder what his demeanor wil be like Yes he bangs and knocks

And throws them rocks

But I don’t think he’ll ever strike”
