Real or Hoax…

I just popped online again a few minutes ago, and every platform had this posted. If it’s real it’s something amazing.

Some comments say it looks to new to be a fossil, and how did this guy just trip over this. I mean anyone can stumble on something amazing.

I hope it’s real and not a hoax and that he found a find for the ages…

I guess we will just wait and see. Thoughts?

The Wild Man…Part 1

While I’ve been home nursing a sick doggo I took the time to do some research. My journey through history took me to The Journal of Biblical Literature. The articles purpose was to describe what scholars call a “a stock character of international folklore tradition,” the Wild Man. They of course first and foremost always describe him as hairy. How much hair is a little different depending on the regions and point of time in history. For size he’s depicted as anything from dwarf stature all the way to gargantuan. Or as this author describes it, he is a “size shifter”. His mode of life? “Living in inaccessible and unsettled places such as forests, mountains, caves or crevices. “

He is able to move physically using all fours to be able to march the speed to catch up to the wildlife he hunts for food. And cares for the wildlife he doe not.

“And my favorite part, which states something I say often, the author writes, “in the forest habitat, because of his kinship with nature, he knows about things that are unknown in human society.”

He is overall considered as being sub-human, the boogeyman of the forest. Something parents would use to keep children of the woods. (My mother used this technique in Maine)

And finally, he is considered “a representative of a monstrous race; of a far away time, a prehistoric specimen.”

After reading this you can easily see how the “wildman” became interpreted as being a “bigfoot” In these modern times.

The Werewolf Girdle…

In Germany the transformation is believed to take place by means of a belt made of wolf-skin, and should this be unfastened or cut, the man-wolf immediately looses his wolf nature.

Mr.Kelley; in his” Curiosities of Indo-European Tradition and Folk Lore.” speaks of these girdles being once for sale.” A sale, says he,” was made by order of the authorities, of a heap ofold things that lay in a room in the Erichsburg. Among them were old implements of the chase which had been taken from poachers, and also some werewolf girdles.

TheAmtmann’s man, having a mind to try the effect of the girdle, buckled one of them on, was immediately turned into a wolf and started off for Hunnesruck.

The Amtmann rode after him, and cutting at his back with a sword, severed the girdle, whereupon the man resumed his proper shape.”

Infamous Thunderbird…

“It’s been awhile since I’ve read about this particular tale and watched the footage so I thought I’d share for everyone here. At 8:30 p.m., July 25, 1977, two giant birds swooped down on a backyard in Lawndale and attacked a 10-year-old boy. One of the birds latched on to the youngster and started to carry him away, but the boy’s mother began beating on the bird until it released him. Shortly after in that same year John “Chief AJ” Huffer. captured this infamous footage of Thunderbirds in Illinois.

Wildlife experts came to the conclusion that they were just turkey vultures but the Chief beloved he had filmed the mysterious thunderbirds of his peoples legends.

Thunderbirds have always fascinated me. I’ve seen and filmed and even walked up to some very large birds and waterfowl over the past few years. It’s a feeling of awe when they allow you to get near, it doesn’t happen often but for some reason no animal is afraid of me.

So having been near some big beauties i was familiar with their sounds, shape, flight shadows. So when my sister and I had our strange moment in Freetown Forest we knew something was different about this birdie.

Now my sister is the one who saw it, I saw the shadow and we both heard a sound from it we have never heard before.

My sisters words were “ is that a pterodactyl?!”

Who knows what it was but the sound I won’t forget, I’ve never heard it since.

So, maybe he did film vultures, but I for one believe something is out there flying around. A beautiful large majestic bird of legend…”
