The Hairy Men of Vancouver…

REPORTS TELL OF CANADIAN MONSTER MEN

Settlers Fifty Miles From Vancouver Describe

Hairy Giants…

Sasquatch men, remnants of a lost race of “wild- men” who Inhabited the rooky regions of British Columbia centuries ago, are reported roaming the province again. After an absence of several months from the district of Harrlson Mills, 50 miles east of Vancouver, the long, wierd, wolf-like howls of the “wild men” are being heard again and two of the hairy monsters were reported seen In the Morris valley on the Harrison river. Residents In the district tell of seeing the two glants leaping and bounding out of the forest and striding across the duck feeding ground, wallowing now and again in the bog and mire and long, swaying swamp grass’.

Reported Agile as Goats. The strange men, it was reported, after emerging from the woods, came leaping down the Jagged rocky hillside with the agility and lightness of mountain goats. Snatches of their weird language floated on tho breeze across the lake to the pioneer settlement at the foot of the hills. The giants walked with an easy gait across the swamp flats and at the Morris Creek, in the shadow of Little Mystery Mountaln, straddled a finating log, which they propelled with their long, hairy hands and huge feet across the sluggish Glacial stream to the other side. There they abandoned the log and climbed hand over hand up the almost perpendicular cliff at a point known as Gibraltar and reappeared at the top of the ridge. They carried two large clubs and walked around a herd of cattle directly in their path.

Indian’s Story Retold…

The return of the giants to the legendary stronghold of the Sasquatch monsters recalls the narrow escape of an Indian at the same spot last March. A huge rock narrowly missed his canoe while he was fishing and looking up, he said he saw a huge and hairy monster stamping his feet and gesticulating wildly. The Indlan escaped by cutting his fishing tackle and paddling away. The same Indian declares two Sasquatch twice have stolen salmon which he tied outside his house out of reach of dogs. The latest appearance of the monsters was peaceful. They avoided the trails usually used by people of the valleyand molested neither cattle nor human beings.

People who have reported seeing the giants on their rare appearances described the men’s appearance as ferocious looking like wild men, nine feet tallu and covered from head to toes with thick black hair..

The Skunkape in the News…

“He said rustlers, not the legendary animal who West Dade residents have claimed sucked blood from their animals and mutilated them, are responsible. “Pirates – they were professionals. You could tell by the cuts and because they knew what to leave behind,”

This is a great article about cryptid sightings reported throughout the years in the Miami Herald. What is great about seeing a time line of sightings like this, is you have a chance to really ponder the evidence. But where there are swamps there are hominids I believe. (One reason I’m always in the swamp)

So first up was a couple articles on the chupacabra. That goat sucking weirdo. These were written in the 90s when they were having a string of livestock disappearing and also being mutualized.

I’m always on the fence with these less logically explained cryprids. Bigfoot? missing link, chupacabra? Who the hell knows. But with the recent find of a bear dog and some zebra cat thing, anything goes, as they say.

Nature creates some amazing life. But here the farmers were convinced that it was cattle thieves that were the culprits, and not a cattle sucking weirdo.

One farmer explained his reason for thinking that it was rustlers was because the way the animals were cut , that it was in such a way as to take the best part of the meat. Sorry, there was no good way to say it. What about any holes found? Well, maybe animals were drugged so they could complete their work? I don’t know I’m just brainstorming here with you. If not chupacabra , what do you think it could be? And if it’s the weirdo then after the 90s where did he go?

“There were rumors in the 1960s of a Bigfoot or a large skunk ape being held by the armed services at . . . Everglades National Park,” wildlife biologist George Dalrymple said.

The ape escaped by ramming itself through a concrete block wall, as the story went. Some investigators made plaster casts of its prints, but those casts are top secret, probably locked away in federal vaults.”

Now skunk ape is a different thing. Less weirdo more stinko.But in places such as this where tourism is all the rage, you have to consider the gains one may get with a legend walking around…

They talk to David Shealy about his evidence in this article, so let’s look at that, it states in the articles that he is a “tireless promoter and proprietor of a Skunk-Ape theme campground in tiny Ochopee on the Tamiami Trail” .

A campground that was always a struggle financially for them. But now, drawing on the legend of the skunkape, things were looking up. He began doing tours out there in the swamp to look for them, and was selling items related to the skunkape.

In 2000 Shealy filmed this video of an alleged ape, he has cast foot prints, prints that Jeff Meldrum stated left him feeling unconvinced. And witnesses who said it was his family out there roaming around in a suit, that they saw gorilla costumes hanging inside their home. You can’t blame them, (if it was them). This was a great financial opportunity for them and for the rest of the town who also uses the legend for their gain. You have to stay focused and weigh all of this information and evidence if you want to make a truly informed decision on wether or not it’s genuine evidence.

Loren Coleman stated that there was enough credible witnesses and evidence for him to believe a North American ape, (or for me a missing link),could be out there. I agree, there is enough for me to believe that something is out there in the Everglades. And I believe following the swamps and/or rivers are your best locations to have an encounter , so why not there. Let me know what you’re thinking. There are no wrong answers and a dialogue is what may help us bring home the evidence.

Communication and working together will go a long way. And as a final thought, if he has odor here in New England, I don’t even want to know what he smells like in the Everglades with that hair and humidity. And what does it do to their hair!! 😱 pack glade, body spray and detangle spray when you go!

TGIF everyone, enjoy your weekend and be safe in the woods!

The Castle…Dracula Day

Running down the castle wall

The blood of those screaming in the hall

SHe’s risen hungry and betrayed

Her revenge in bodies will be weighed

These people, these peasants, she thought

Can go find another castle to haunt

They will regret their plan to imprison me

I will maim, torture and kill all of them I see

None will be saved, none of them turned

And each and every house in the town shall be burned

I’ll start with that priest

Please, God could never control my soul’s beast

I’ll take his cross with me as I sin

He shall learn I always win

Let my second reign begin

But first I think I’ll take a ride,

…Maybe more of a flight

I have to burn all this new life I have flowing inside

Time for a little… male companionship

Before I feel the end of night…

Happy Dracula Day!

A NEW YORK WEREWOLF.
Strange Delusion of a Man Who Crawls on all Fours.
NEW YORK, October . 21.-

James Rubinstein thinks he is a werewolf. He walks on all tours and howls like a wolf.
A werewolf was in legendary lore it is supposed to be a human who, having given
offense to some supernatural being, was
metamorphosed by the latter into the
shape of a wolf. The soul, however, retained all its human attributes, passions and desires.
Rubinstein came to this country several years ago from Germany, A week ago he began showing signs of the approach of his mysterious sickness. His wife noticed that he would frequently drop on all fours and crawl around as if in search of something. Yesterday Rubinstein crawled up to his wife and barked fiercely. Then he snarled and snapped at her, and when she fled from the room he howled like a lost soul. The frightened woman sent
for an ambulance and had her husband taken to the hospital.

Naugatuck Daily News, October 1897
And now In the present I stumbled on an article on how to be a werewolf. Make people believe you are…

Now switch to the present and you can find how to guides on being a werewolf, costumes and online groups to role play with you, almost normalizing the fascination.

The difference is he believed he was one, and the other just pretend to be one. But because of these cosplay groups, we may never know if someone actually does believe they are one…

This is older article…obviously. But I like to post blasts from the near past as well. But, this article mentioned that it caught two bears in there.

I didn’t know that before. Or maybe I forgot it happened. That would not surprise me.

Have a great Monday everyone’

Bigfoot in the News…Extraordinary Tales Part 2

A Strange, Strange Story…

Chilliewhack In his younger days

Charley belongs to a hamlet near.

He was known as one of the best hunters in the province and had many thrilling adventures in his time. Did he know anything about the hairy ape-like men who were supposed to inhabit the distant mountains?

The old warrior smiled, and answered that he had had a slight acquaintance with them. He had been in what he thought was one of their houses. “And that is not all .” said he. “I met and spoke to one of their women, and I shot, But let Charcley tell the story himself The strange people of whom there are but few now rarely seen

and seldom met said the old

hunter. “are known by the name of Sasquatch, or the hairy mountain men.

-The first time I came to know about these people continued the old man “I did not see anybody. Three young men and myself were picking same berries on a rocky mountain slope five or six miles from the old town of Yale. In our search for berries. We

suddenly stumbled upon a large opening in

the side of the mountain. This was discovery greatly surprised all of us, for we knew every foot of the mountain. and never knew, nor heard there was even the vicinity outside the mouth of the cave, there was an enormous boulder. We peered into the cavity but couldn’t see anything.

“We gathered some pitch wood, lighted it and began to explore. But before we got very far from the entrance of the cave, we came upon a sort of stone house or enclosure: It was a crude affair. We

couldn’t make a thorough examination. for our pitchwood kept going out. We left. We were intending to return in a couple of days and go on exploring. Old Indians, to whom

we told the story of our discovery warned us not to venture near the cave again, as it was surely occupied by the Sasquatch.

That was the first time I heard about the

hairy men that inhabit the mountains.

We, however, disregarded the advice

of the old men and sneaked off to explore the cave, but to our great disappointment found the boulder rolled back into the

mouth and fitting it so nicely that you

might suppose it had been there made for that purpose. Charley

intimated that he hoped to have enough

money someday to buy sutticient

dynamite to blow open the cave of the Sasquatch and see how far it extends

through the mountain. The Indian then took

up the thread of his story and told of his

first meeting with one of these men. A number of other Indians and himself

Were bathing in A small lake near Yule. He

was dressing when suddenly out from

behind a rock, only a few feet away stepped a nude hairy man. “Oh he was so

big man!” continued the old hunter, he looked calmer then me for moment his eyes

were so kind looking that I was about to

speak to him when he turned about and

walked into the forest. At the same place two weeks later, Charley together with several of his companions saw the giant. But this time he ran towards the mountain. This was twenty years after the discovery of the cave…
