Werewolf Cave Art…

Researchers find werewolf fears 10,000 years ago

They were created to trigger our most primitive fears — by depicting half-human, half-animal monsters that hunted the living.

But these horrific creatures differed in one crucial way from the warped humanoid beasts that fill the high school corridors of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” or the werewolves and blood-sucking monsters that populate horror books. These creatures were painted by Stone Age peoples more than 10,000 years ago and represent some of the world’s oldest art.

The surprising discovery that werewolves are as old as humanity is the handiwork of researchers who have carried out a major analysis of the world’s ancient rock art sites in Europe, Africa and Australia.

“We looked at art that goes back to the dawn of humanity and found it had one common feature: animal-human hybrids,” said Dr. Christopher Chippindale, of the museum of archaeology and anthropology at Cambridge University in England.

“Werewolves and vampires are as old as art, in other words,” he said. “These composite beings, from a world between humans and animals, are a common theme from the beginning of painting.”

Why do we have such a fascination for werewolves and other monsters? Is it because it helps us express our deepest fears? All those years ago you can understand why they were thought to be real and feared, it helped them explain so many things they didn’t understand. But now all these years later we still need and want them around, some hope they really do exist.

What about you? Would you like to see some wild beasties running around come the next full moon?

Have a great rest of your evening!

Looking for bigfoot in Rhode Island…

Today Howard and I went out squatching together. I received an email from a woman who had seen all my recent postings from my hikes in Wrentham and Cumberland, as I followed the Warner trail, and she thought I’d be interested in her strange encounter.

For those that hadn’t seen those postings, here’s some info about The Warner Trail. The trail is a 30 mile long New England hiking trail that extends from Diamond Hill in northeast Rhode Island through to Norfolk County, Massachusetts. At one time you could could follow it all the way to the Blue Hills. But of course the land was broken up so developments could be built. While I was exploring I focused most of my time on the wrentham and Plainville area of the trail, but I did do one day in Cumberland Rhode Island.

Over the years I’ve been in many sections of this trail, On one hike In the Moose Hill section in Norfolk Massachusetts I was able to catch a few knocks on my video footage. I also felt a bit like I was being watched. I have also found large structures, etc. if bigfoot was wandering this area I wouldn’t be surprised, it certainly offers everything he would need to sustain him.

So Howard and I hit the trail where, Elaine, had her strange experience. She said she lives off of Fisher Street near Diamond Hill Park in R. I where part of the Warner Trail runs. The trail says private property but apparently you are allowed on it. This part of the trail leads to the Cumberland Reservoir. She said while walking from her house down the trail she heard a sound out there she had never heard before. A sound between a growl and a long babble.

She only heard it that one instance and she didn’t see anything around her. She said she was familiar with Rhode Island wildlife and didn’t think it was one of the usual critters found out there.

Now let me say this part of the trail is a nightmare. Slanted, rocky, narrow and very dense forests, even if something was out there you couldn’t see it, and of course the rocks tore my ankle up again.

We didn’t hear or see anything except for some old grills poking out. I did some research and apparently the YMCA had a campground out there some years ago.

It was a rough walk for most of it, and I didn’t see anything that stood out as any evidence but I did get to walk another section of the trail so I feel like I accomplished something today!

I don’t know if she heard a bigfoot, fox or some crazy person out there, but it would make for an easy migration trail for one to travel on. You have to wonder if he uses these types of trails to get around, I mean why not it’s a nice green corridor to travel on, running right along a river, if I was bigfoot I’d be all over it…

If you have had an odd encounter or bigfoot/paranormal sighting on any part of the Warner trail I’d love to hear from you!

Hope you had a great day today…

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…”
