Yeti Another Bigfoot Video

An intriguing video from Canada shows a remarkably clear view of what appears to be a Bigfoot walking in a wooded area near a large body of water. The fantastic footage was shared online by the Rocky Mountain Sasquatch Organization, which indicated that boaters in the northern part of Ontario had recently filmed the strange scene. Unfortunately, the specific time and location of the sighting as well as the identity of the witnesses are all unknown at this time. Be that as it may, the footage constitutes one of the more jaw-dropping alleged Bigfoot videos to appear online simply by virtue its unambiguous nature.

In the footage (seen below), the boaters are filming a nearby forested shoreline when a large bipedal creature covered in fur emerges from the woods and walks across an open area until disappearing back into the trees. Notably, the suspected Sasquatch boasts a coloring that allows it to largely blend into its surroundings and it swings its arms in a fashion reminiscent of the ‘star’ of the famed Patterson-Gimlin film. Unlike many purported Bigfoot videos, the footage is particularly interesting as the oddity in the footage is undeniably some kind of bipedal figure and it can be clearly seen for approximately six seconds, which is a rather long time for one to get such a glimpse of the elusive cryptid.

Given what can be seen in the video, there are only a handful of possible suspects for what the creature could have been, beginning with Sasquatch, of course. More skeptical viewers might argue that the animal is actually a bear walking on two legs, though that explanation is something of a stretch in light of how smoothly the beast moves. The other explanation that cannot be discounted is that the video is a well-crafted hoax, either produced on-site using a person in a suit or, failing that, after the fact by way of a digital manipulation.

Hard to say on this one. The thing shuffles across a clear area just as the boat arrives. Little fishy.

Bigfoot sighting in Saskatchewan?

This is from 2014. It’s interesting in that Saskatchewan has very few Sasquatch sightings. This video was taken near the town of Craven. Craven is located just north of Regina in the middle of vast grain fields. Not a lot of woodland or forest in the area, land types the hairy Sasquatch beasts seem to prefer. But there is the Qu’appelle river valley. Much woodland along the river.

The river valley:

If this is a Bigfoot then is seems to have veered off the typical habitat they are most often spotted in. A lost Sasquatch.

REGINA – A recently-published video reportedly shot near Craven, Saskatchewan suggests that the legendary Bigfoot has been spotted in southern Saskatchewan.

The video was posted to YouTube this week and has since been featured on a number of websites dedicated to debating the existence of the fabled creature.

Title pages seen in the video explain that a family was out for a drive near Craven when they were shocked to see a “hair-covered biped” walking on a hill beside the road.

According to the Bigfoot Field Researchers Association there have been a total of seven bigfoot sightings in Saskatchewan – mostly in the northern part of the province.

Drought in China Reveals Puzzling ‘Alien’ Patterns in Dry Lake Bed

A debilitating drought drastically depleted the water of a massive lake in China and, in turn, revealed a sizeable series of puzzling patterns that some have likened to crop circles. The curious shapes (seen in the video above) were reportedly spotted in the exposed bed of Dongting Lake, which is located in the province of Hunan. Videos of the curious formations soon spread like wildfire on Chinese social media with many people offering some rather fantastic explanations for the odd patterns. As one might imagine, due to their resemblance to crop circles, many suggested that aliens may have been behind the strange shapes, while one particularly imaginative individual simply declared “don’t touch it. It’s the door to a secret underground chamber.”

In response to the speculation, an official from the group that manages the lake suggested that the patterns are probably the remnants of a type of fishing trap, known as an ‘ai wei,’ wherein small walls are used to capture the creatures as water levels rise and then fall due to a river that connects to the lake. However, not everyone is convinced of that explanation as one local resident expressed some skepticism due to the sheer size of the shapes, noting that “each block is as big as standard football fields.” Whether the patterns were made by humans or aliens, that they could be seen at all is cause for concern among many since the site is the country’s second largest freshwater lake and the drought has caused it to lose a staggering 70 percent of its water.

Security Guard Filmed Talking to Ghost?

Video below.

An intriguing video from Argentina shows the moment when a hospital security guard claims to have greeted a visitor that he later learned was seemingly the ghost of a patient who had died earlier that night. The remarkable incident reportedly occurred last Saturday at the Finochietto Sanatorium in the city of Buenos Aires. At around three in the morning, the guard says that he was at the hospital’s front desk when an elderly woman entered through the automatic doors and explained that she had left something behind in her room. He subsequently took down her information and directed her into the building to retrieve the forgotten item. When the woman did not return a few hours later, he called the floor where she was headed and received an stunning response.

The security guard was informed that no such woman had visited the floor that night, which understandably piqued his curiosity. Going back to his paperwork from when she entered the building, he told them the name of the woman and that she had stayed in room 915. In what was likely an Earth-shattering experience for the man, the staff on the floor told him that person was a patient who had died three hours before he had encountered her in the front lobby. While this would normally be a fantastic tale worthy of an evening around the campfire, what makes the guard’s account particularly compelling is that his exchange with the woman was actually filmed by the hospital’s security camera.

In the bewildering video, seen above, the security guard stands up from the desk as the doors to the building open and, although no one can be seen entering, he grabs his clipboard and walks forward as if to speak to someone. For several seconds, the man appears to carry on a conversation which culminates with him ushering the invisible individual into the building and offering them a wheelchair, which they apparently declined. Since appearing online over the weekend, the confounding footage has gone viral on social media in Argentina with many wondering if the security guard’s eerie account is genuine.

In response to the furor surrounding the video, a skeptical official at the hospital indicated that they are investigating the matter and offered one particularly curious note about that night. He explained that a check of the security footage showed multiple instances wherein the possibly faulty automatic doors were seemingly triggered by nothing in particular. It was only in the one instance wherein the guard claims to have spoken to the woman that he responded as if someone had entered the building. That said, it has also been suggested that the video and accompanying tale might be an elaborate hoax orchestrated by the guard.

Route 66’s glowing mystery orb

A floating orange ball over the famed US route has puzzled travellers for more than 100 years. And while most agree that the Hornet Spook Light exists, few agree on what causes it.

On a four-mile rural road eerily nicknamed the Devil’s Promenade, just off the old Route 66 in the north-east corner of Oklahoma, a paranormal mystery has puzzled spirit seekers for more than 100 years. The Hornet Spook Light – a mysterious, basketball-sized glowing orb named for the former town of Hornet – has been appearing in the night sky here since 1881. No-one knows what this peculiar, smouldering ball of light signifies, where it comes from or what it’s composed of. Even the Army Corps of Engineers have concluded that it’s a “mysterious light of unknown origin”.

It moves, spinning and bobbing up and down, like a lantern held by a dancing ghost, and is usually spotted from inside the Oklahoma border looking to the west.

As Route 66 historian Cheryl Eichar Jett, author of Route 66 in Kansas and founder of the annual Miles of Possibility Route 66 Conference, explained, “The Mother Road’s historical path through Joplin, Galena, Baxter Springs and then south to Quapaw, overlaps the Hornet Spook Light’s fame in the corners of Missouri, Kansas and Oklahoma, where those three states’ borders meet. And so, the legends and lore of the eerie light have become inextricably tied to the equally legendary highway.”

Drawn by the mystery like so many other Route 66 aficionados, I parked my car along the empty road in the still of a moonless night. I waited for over an hour in the darkness, and though the Spook Light never bounced in the distance, the lore I’d read magnified my expectation so much that a pair of passing headlights spooked me, if only for a second.

Local resident Vance Randolph documented his encounter with the phenomenon in his 1947 tome Ozark Magic and Folklore. “I have seen this light myself, on three occasions,” he wrote. “It first appeared about the size of an egg but varied until sometimes it looked as big as a washtub. I saw only a single glow, but other witnesses have seen it split into two, three or four smaller lights. The thing looked yellowish to me, but some observers describe it as red, green, blue, or even purple in colour. One man swore that it passed so close to him that he could plainly feel the heat, and a woman saw it burst like a bubble, scattering sparks in all directions.”

Dean “Crazylegs” Walker hails from Baxter Springs, Kansas, and was the inspiration behind the character of Tow-Mater in the Route 66-themed Cars film franchise. He volunteers at the Kansas Route 66 Visitors’ Center and recalls seeing the Spook Light at Devil’s Promenade on several occasions, starting with a first sighting at age eight. “My dad, mom and my uncle often took my cousins and me out to try to find the Hornet Spook Light,” he said. “Once, it even floated right through the front windshield of our car! My cousins and I crouched in the backseat, hiding from the light, until – poof! – it disappeared. We were all so spooked that no-one said a word ’til we got back to our home.”

Grace Goodeagle, an elder member of the Quapaw Nation, which is based in Quapaw, has a similar story: “One night, when I was about 10, my uncle drove my siblings and me to the Devil’s Promenade. Moments later, a glowing light appeared in the distance, deep in the woods. We weren’t afraid of it, though.”

While locals agree that the Hornet Spook Light indeed exists, few agree on what causes it. 

In Vance’s book, he offered some theories of his era: some believed it to be the ghost of a murdered Osage chief; others said it was “the spirit of a Quapaw maiden who drowned herself in the river when her warrior was killed in battle”.

Goodeagle disputes those tall tales. “We must remember that our peoples are not native to this area,” she said. “The Quapaw peoples were forcibly removed from our ancestral home in the Mississippi valley beginning in 1830, after the enactment of the Indian Removal Act. The legends pointing towards ‘Indian spirits’ haunting this area are just that, legends. Our Nation believes in spirits, good and bad, but our family felt that the lights were simply due to nature, and not good or bad spirits, playing around with us.”

The first documented investigation into the Hornet Spook Light was undertaken by AB MacDonald, a reporter for the Kansas City Star, in January 1936. MacDonald judged that the mysterious lights were the headlights of cars driving east on Route 66.

Writer Robert Gannon concluded the same in a 1965 article in Popular Mechanics after conducting a test: he flashed his headlights on the adjacent highway at a specific time. His assistant, stationed on Devil’s Promenade, reported that the Hornet Spook Light appeared simultaneously.

“I doubt it was car headlights,” countered Goodeagle. “I won’t ever forget the experience. The light I saw bounced around and slowly approached my uncle’s truck. It simply did not appear to be automobile headlights from a distance in any way.”

“Some locals think the lights are caused by swamp gas,” she added. But Andrew George, associate professor of biology at Pittsburg State University in Kansas, disagrees. “The landscape around the Hornet Spook Light is unlikely to produce luminescent gasses, which are thought to cause similar phenomena elsewhere,” he explained.

Though he has not tested it himself, George backs the headlights idea. “The Hornet Spook Light is almost certainly caused by vehicle headlights on the larger roads a few miles to the west,” he said. “The unusual appearance and movement of the light probably result from changes in air densities above the Spring River and the surrounding forests and fields. The light is refracted as it passes through the warmer and cooler air.”

Walker, like many locals, is not buying it. “No, it’s not car headlights,” he said. “It’s just too far from the turnpike. There is just no way.”
