The Bigfoot phenomenon is already inherently unusual sufficient as it’s. Right here we’ve instances of an obvious monumental bushy bipedal ape-man roaming the wilderness that has managed to stay hidden and elusive for a really very long time. The standard view is that this can be a flesh and blood animal of some kind, and that its ingenuity and distant habitat has helped it to stay evasive to efforts to search out it. But, the phenomenon appears to go deeper than that, as instances have unfold into the realm of issues that do not appear to essentially slot in with this assumption, together with invisible or vanishing Bigfoot, and even stranger nonetheless these which were sighted together with UFO exercise. Such accounts actually serve to make the entire phenomenon much more weird than it already is, and reviews of Bigfoot and UFOs stay among the many strangest of the unusual.
One very odd account that was supposedly really investigated by the CIA’s Undertaking Blue Guide UFO mission allegedly occurred in 1966 at Presque Isle State Park, alongside Presque Isle Bay on Lake Erie, in Pennsylvania. On the night of July 31, 1966, some visiting vacationers had been driving at a seashore there when their automobile obtained caught within the sand and considered one of them went to go get a tow truck. A passing police automobile stopped to assist them, and got here again somewhat later to verify on them, and that was when the 4 vacationers and two law enforcement officials all witnessed an odd mild over a patch of close by forest, and the policemen and one of many group, a person named Douglas Tibbets, went to test it out because the others waited behind. Issues would get very unusual from there.
The investigating group had solely walked a number of hundred yards after they might hear the automobile honking wildly behind them. When Tibbets and the 2 officers obtained there, the others had been very agitated and scared. They might declare that they’d seen what they described as a “boring black form, larger than a person, huge head and shoulders, arm-like appendages, no palms, no face seen, as if it had its again turned.” The creature had appeared in entrance of the automobile to loom over them earlier than shifting off into the night time within the path of the place the mysterious mild had been seen. After this, a craft with blinking orange and crimson lights had allegedly come all the way down to land on the seashore whereas monitoring the determine with a beam of sunshine. Police would return to analyze the next morning to search out some anomalous triangular indentations within the sand, considerably corroborating what the ladies stated they’d seen.
What was happening right here? For some motive, the 12 months 1973 would produce quite a few reviews of what seem like Bigfoot and UFOs collectively. From the recordsdata of researcher and writer Albert S Rosales comes a number of that occurred in early September of that 12 months. One in all these occurred close to Penn Township, Pennsylvania, when three ladies driving alongside by a wooded space handed by an enormous rectangular object that seemed to be metallic and was resting upon the bottom. It was such an odd sight that they stopped the automobile to see what it was, and at that occasion a ramp descended from the craft. As the ladies seemed on in awe, three seven-foot tall bushy ape-like creatures reportedly got here barreling out of the craft down the ramp to go operating off into the woods. That very same month, on September 27, 1973, two ladies taking part in exterior in Beaver County, Pennsylvania had been startled to see an 8-foot-tall, bushy humanoid with glowing eyes run previous them into the woods. In accordance with the witnesses, it was holding some kind of glowing sphere in its palms. One of many ladies’ fathers went to analyze and got here again visibly frightened, though he refused to say what he had seen. Curiously, it might prove that different locals had seen a silvery object taking pictures a beam down into the woods at roughly the identical time as this sighting.
The next month, one well-known such report occurred on the night time of October 21, 1973, when a Mrs. Reafa Heitfield and her 13-year-old son had been asleep of their trailer in Cincinnati, Ohio. When Heitfield woke in the midst of the night time to get a glass of water, she claims that she noticed a sequence of inexplicable lights out within the parking space, considered one of them being a cone-shaped building of sunshine. When she peered exterior to see what the lights had been, she reportedly noticed an enormous, ape-like beast with grayish hair masking its physique, which then entered the sunshine earlier than it and the UFO shot off into the night time. In that very same 12 months there was the report from a gaggle of farmers in Fayette County, Pennsylvania, who claimed to have seen an enormous UFO about 100 toes in diameter, subsequent to which had been standing two bushy, ape-like creatures with arms that dangled previous their knees and with glowing inexperienced eyes. One of many farmers purportedly fired at them along with his rifle, after which considered one of them raised its arm and the UFO shot off into the sky. The 2 hulking brutes remained, appraised the lads for a second, after which ran off into the forest.
Simply as harrowing was a report that got here only a few days later, this time additionally in Fayette County, Pennsylvania. On this event, some farmers witnessed a dome-shaped UFO estimated as being round 100 toes in diameter over the highway as they drove alongside. As they approached, they claimed to have seen two “gargantuan creatures lined with thick, matted hair, luminescent inexperienced eyes and lengthy arms that dangled beneath their knees.” The UFO then shot off into the night time because the hulking beats lumbered off into the close by woods. The next 12 months, in December of 1974, there was the very well-known case of dairy farmer William Bosak, who was driving house in Frederic, Wisconsin when he almost crashed proper into an enormous spherical UFO sitting on the highway. The underside of the craft was enveloped in a thick mist, and sitting inside a glass dome on the craft’s high was a bushy ape-like creature with reddish-brown fur and pointed ears, seemingly at work manning the controls. The craft and its weird pilot then blasted off into the night time to vanish. I’ve written a extra detailed account of this case right here.
One other very bizarre report comes from 1989, this one additionally from the recordsdata of Albert S Rosales, and it allegedly occurred at Tillamook, Oregon. On the night of September 27, a lady was woken by her daughter telling her there was one thing unusual exterior. The lady went to go examine and was most likely not ready for simply how unusual it might actually grow to be. When she went on the market, she noticed a disc hovering over the bottom, formed like an inverted toy high and with an almost clear floor. The very bizarre report continues:
As the lady approached to inside 30 toes, a doorway opened, revealing a human-like being of common top, with blond hair, honest pores and skin, and blue eyes, wearing a silver coverall. At a window subsequent to the door was a “Bigfoot” creature, seemingly seated and visual from the chest up. For the subsequent jiffy, the lady stared on the two, gaining the impression that the “human” was making an attempt (unsuccessfully) to speak. Then the car and beings vanished immediately (i.e. with out accelerating past viewing vary). The lady is a psychic and claims to have had periodic encounters with UFOs and “Bigfoot” creatures all through her life.
One other baffling account from Albert S Rosales appears to concern bushy hominids that may really levitate. The incident allegedly occurred in January of 1997, out within the distant wilderness of the Chelyabinsk area, within the Urals of Russia. Right here lodged inside the dense bushes was a army radar outpost, and within the early morning hours one of many troopers stationed there was out gathering firewood on a chilly however clear day. There was supposedly a lot of snow on the bottom that morning, however a transparent path led to the pre-prepared pile of firewood on website. Because the soldier started to assemble the wooden, he then observed one thing very peculiar within the type of two hulking bushy humanoids lined in soiled reddish hair standing there inside the fence perimeter, considered one of them gigantic 7.5 toes tall, and the opposite a lot shorter, at just below 6 toes tall, and the witness would later speculate that they’d seemingly approached the set up drawn to the odor of breakfast cooking within the close by kitchen. The odd report continues:
The soldier thought that the taller entity was a feminine and the second shorter one, most likely a baby. Each entities had penetrated contained in the perimeter of the unit presumably attracted by the odor of the kitchen space. The witness was carrying an axe and for some unusual motive was not afraid solely curious, and walked in the direction of the creatures in an try to acquire a greater look. Amazingly he wasn’t in a position to strategy the pair, since each continuously appeared to maneuver forward of him, he couldn’t make up any floor between them so he elevated his tempo, however on the identical time the entities elevated theirs shifting rapidly away from him. Lastly, shifting sooner and sooner the entities jumped up into the air and momentarily the witness thought that the perimeter fence would hinder their escape, however to his amazement he noticed how each of the bushy humanoids merely zoomed into the air and levitated over the fence. The humanoids then flew away and vanished above the tall pine bushes within the forest which surrounded the army set up. The witness then stopped his pursuit, returned again to the fence and noticed two tracks of footprints which had been left on the snow. The layer of snow was thick and powerful, evidently the tall bushy humanoid was very heavy. Nevertheless, the footprints appeared to grow to be dimmer and fewer deep as they neared the fence, indicating that the humanoids apparently started ascending into the air.
Such fully weird and surreal instances, in addition to speak of Bigfoot in relation to UFOs usually, have usually rubbed these in cryptozoology the improper method. Speaking about such issues will get you laughed out of most Bigfoot conventions at greatest, and it’s a sensitive topic to convey up with Bigfoot researchers. There’s the entrenched concept that these have to be undiscovered apes, and due to this fact flesh and blood animals of this earth. But these reviews exist, and can’t be all simply swept beneath the carpet with a purpose to embrace one explicit concept. Maybe they might each exist in concord, and possibly these instances symbolize one thing aside from one other actual flesh and blood creature, however even then what are we taking a look at right here? Are these aliens, interdimensional interlopers, or merely figments of the creativeness? Such instances sit like unsettling, unwelcome friends inside cryptozoology, however they’re laborious to disregard. Regardless of the case could also be, whether or not they’re actual or not, they’re very bizarre instances that serve to fire up the pot and convey the realms of cryptozoology and ufology crashing collectively, for higher or worse.
