By far probably the most well-known and most generally and incessantly sighted cryptid is little question Bigfoot and different related furry hominids all through the world. These circumstances run the vary, and are available from individuals of all ages and all walks of life, from throughout an unlimited spectrum. But, on some events issues can get very bizarre, certainly. Whereas the overwhelming majority of Bigfoot or furry humanoid sightings appear to recommend one thing like a big ape and an precise animal, principally a flesh and blood creature, generally these sightings go absolutely off the rails into the decidedly extra fringe, and right here we are going to check out a number of the more odd of those. From levitating Bigfoot, to those that vanish, go invisible, disappear into portals, or come out of spaceships, get your seatbelt prepared, as a result of we’re going for a journey effectively out into the area of a number of the very weirdest Bigfoot experiences on the market.
One very weird case comes from the recordsdata of author and researcher of mysteries Albert S Rosales, and appears to concern furry 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 throughout the dense bushes was a navy 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 number of snow on the bottom that morning, however a transparent path led to the pre-prepared pile of firewood on web site. Because the soldier started to collect the wooden, he then seen one thing very peculiar within the type of two hulking furry humanoids coated in soiled reddish hair standing there throughout the fence perimeter, one in all them gigantic 7.5 ft tall, and the opposite a lot shorter, at slightly below 6 ft tall, and the witness would later speculate that that they had probably approached the set up drawn to the odor of breakfast cooking within the close by kitchen. The odd report continues as follows:
The soldier thought that the taller entity was a feminine and the second shorter one, in all probability a toddler. Each entities had penetrated contained in the perimeter of the unit probably attracted by the odor of the kitchen space. The witness was carrying an axe and for some unusual purpose was not afraid solely curious, and walked in direction of the creatures in an try and get hold of 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 similar time the entities elevated theirs transferring rapidly away from him. Lastly, transferring quicker and quicker 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 furry 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 navy 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 furry humanoid was very heavy. Nonetheless, the footprints appeared to develop into dimmer and fewer deep as they neared the fence, indicating that the humanoids apparently started ascending into the air.
No matter occurred right here, experiences of flying or levitating Bigfoot usually are not one thing you see on daily basis. If that isn’t unusual sufficient for you, then how about Bigfoot that appear to have the power to fade, flip invisible, or in any other case exit actuality? From the positioning Phantoms and Monsters we now have a report from a witness named John Wesch, who says this occurred at his house in a rugged space in upstate New York within the Adirondacks area in August of 2018. The witness claims that he usually leaves out meals for the assorted wild animals to return eat, reminiscent of birds, squirrels, chipmunks, rabbits, deer, fox, raven and crows. He says that it was his regular routine to exit into that giant rural yard and watch the animals are available to feed, and on this morning, he was doing this as standard when he heard an uncommon snorting sound which he at first took to be from a deer, however would quickly show to be far more weird than that. The witness explains:
The woods have the morning mild shining on the road of bushes however past that was nonetheless principally darkish. I may see about 20 ft into the tree line. I do not see a deer. Inside two seconds of the primary snort I hear one other one as I’m nonetheless wanting however not seeing a deer. One thing steps out from behind a tree. Its left aspect is going through me. All I may see was a big black form step out. It stands there for perhaps just a few seconds. I do know what I used to be taking a look at however I had no response different than simply watching. It made a noise however not the snorting sort. Then it walked into the woods. Not solely did I see and listen to it stroll away however I felt it within the floor. Prefer it was hole and vibrated. No breaking or snapping branches simply footsteps. Nearly like an echo within the floor. After about six steps it was gone. Nothing modified. Identical fowl’s and critters transferring about. Unaffected. I stood there processing what had simply occurred over the previous couple of seconds. Apart from the echoing thuds of footsteps it was silent.
After I realized that, I walked ahead slowly to the spot. Unsure what I’d see. Nothing. The place it was standing the bottom was coated with fallen and outdated branches. You, nor I or a ninja may have walked by means of right here silently. I decide the peak a straightforward 8 ft tall. Based mostly on its head peak relative to the tree it stood subsequent to. I stood there wanting round with no sounds. I walked again to the picnic desk and sat on it. Nonetheless all the things is as regular. After the espresso and smoke, and observing the wildlife, I’m going and head inside. As I attain for the door knob I really feel like I ought to flip round. So I do and scan the tree line once more. Nothing. Simply as I flip the knob whereas going through the door I see a flash of sunshine like a digicam flash. Like somebody behind me simply took an image. Immediately I obtained goosebumps. My hairs stood proper up and felt like I could not get inside fast sufficient. Unusual however uneventful and really memorable. It needed to have watched me for at the very least ten seconds earlier than it moved. Have not seen it since. It needed me to understand it was there. This factor was large.
There are fairly just a few experiences alongside these traces, of obvious Bigfoot simply blinking out of existence someway. There have been a number of equally weird and inexplicable circumstances of Sasquatch merely vanishing in full view listed in a paper known as Vanishing Bigfoot and Anecdotal Accounts: Implications and Challenges for Researchers, by Sharon Cornet. One of many circumstances coated comes from the summer time of 2000, by a witness named John Bohannon. He claims that had been driving alongside a mud street throughout the daylight simply west of the Three Rivers Campground, close to Alamogordo, New Mexico, when he noticed an enormous bipedal, ape-like creature, which was estimated to have been round 8 ft tall and strolling alongside in the identical path as his automobile. The driving force slowed right down to gape at it, and the huge beast was described as having brief, reddish brown hair throughout its physique, with longer hair beneath its forearms and a face that seemed like a “Neanderthal.” It allegedly saved up its brisk stride whereas staring immediately at John for about 100 ft, after which it all of a sudden simply abruptly light away into skinny air, as if it had simply been someway erased. The witness defined that there have been no bushes or something that it may have hidden behind and that it appeared as if it had walked by means of “an invisible wall.”
Additionally coated is a curious account that allegedly occurred to witness Larry Kelm, in August of 1980 close to Eugene, Oregon, and it’s laborious to actually classify, seeming to level at vanishing Sasquatch being the results of some form of inter-dimensional portal. On this present day, Larry had determined to take a hike alongside the Mollala Indian path, which connects the ridges of Saddle Blanket Mountain and close by Oakridge. Sooner or later throughout his hike, the witness claims that his environment grew to become blurry, overcast, and tinged with an odd gray coloration, regardless of the sunny climate, and despite the fact that there have been no clouds within the sky it appeared as if a shadow had been solid over the land. Larry would say of this:
The one approach I can describe it was as if all of a sudden I used to be wanting by means of another person’s prescription sun shades. I completed the step and began one other. Each inch I moved ahead the darkness elevated and the grey blurring become a jumble of shapes that made no sense.
Then, as all of a sudden as this had all occurred, Larry experiences that he appeared to go “a barrier,” and that all the things returned to focus however that it was now night time time and the wind had fully ceased. Upon wanting round himself, Larry discovered that the surroundings had modified in different weird methods as effectively. As an alternative of the fir bushes that had been round him earlier than, there was now thick, unrecognizable and wild vegetation much like a jungle, and the air appeared thick and oppressively humid. Although it was now night time and there was no discernible moon within the sky, he discovered that he may nonetheless see all the things to a point, as if there was some mysterious mild supply casting a faint frosting of sunshine upon the panorama. At this level, Larry claims that the air was pierced by a “steady high-pitched keening sound,” which instantly stuffed him with an insufferable sense of dread. The witness defined the actually fairly weird occasions that adopted:
It was at this level, I heard a whispered “Gotcha” over my proper shoulder. I couldn’t inform if I heard it with my ears or inside my head. The phrase wasn’t directed at me however one thing stated the phrase quietly to itself. I used to be so terrified I really felt my coronary heart cease for a second. That whispered phrase is what saved me. I opened my mouth and gasped in an enormous gush of thick air and recoiled backward in the identical footsteps I had entered wherever I used to be. As I threw myself backward, I seemed over my proper shoulder. A darkish coloured furry proper hand and arm was reaching for my throat over my shoulder. The hand had pale ivory spade-shaped fingernails. The nails seemed clear and nearly had a manicured look to them. The thumb was positioned decrease (in direction of the wrist) on the hand than a human’s is. Each hand and arm had been skinny and highly effective wanting and each had been coated with thick coarse black hair. I obtained an excellent have a look at it as a result of the thumbnail grazed my neck (it didn’t break the pores and skin) as I moved backwards. As I continued backwards, the hand clutched the place my neck had been a cut up second earlier than and it appeared to fade off into the gap as I returned by means of the Portal.
As quickly as he had scampered just a few extra steps backwards, Larry discovered himself again within the cool mountain air he had left behind and again in his acquainted environment, and the portal earlier than him gave the impression to be an oval formed patch of shimmering air that slowly light away till it was gone. Larry then ran off in direction of his truck as quick as he may with out wanting again. The terrified witness later would mirror on what had occurred to him, and got here to the conclusion that it had been some form of inter-dimensional lure, saying:
On my approach house, I used to be completely horrified on the considered what would occur if I had been to drive my truck into one thing like that. It had been a lure pure and easy. No matter it was that attempted to kill me someway saved the Portal hidden from me on the way in which in, and I didn’t really see it till I used to be again out once more. I had horrible nightmares for years, and nonetheless haven’t come to grips with what occurred. My fingers are trembling and the hair is standing up on the nape of my neck as I write this.
In one more report, a witness known as Ms. Montanez was driving alongside a desert freeway east of El Paso, Texas, when she noticed a Bigfoot reportedly hunched over a lifeless coyote. She slowed her automobile to get a greater have a look at the weird sight, and claims that as she seemed on the huge beast began to form of sink, as if being absorbed into the bottom, till it was fully gone. The witness was satisfied that there needed to have been a cave there, and that the factor had merely retreated to its darkish confines, however when the spot was investigated there was discovered to be no cave or different opening within the floor. Curiously, the coyote was gone and there have been no footprints of something that might have matched the outline of what she had seen. The place on this planet did it go? Nobody is aware of.
Most likely even weirder than any of those are the occasions Bigfoot are reportedly seen in connection to UFOs. One well-known such report occurred in 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 course 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, one in all them being a cone-shaped building of sunshine. When she peered outdoors 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 yr there was the report from a gaggle of farmers in Fayette County, Pennsylvania, who claimed to have seen an enormous UFO about 100 ft in diameter, subsequent to which had been standing two furry, 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 one in all them raised its arm and the UFO shot off into the sky. The 2 hulking brutes remained, appraised the boys for a second, after which ran off into the forest.
How can we cope with experiences reminiscent of these? They clearly match the mould of Bigfoot sightings in a superficial sense, however these go far past what one would count on from what is basically assumed to be some undiscovered big ape or early type of hominid. Is there the likelihood that the phenomenon goes deeper than many are keen to just accept? Are we maybe taking a look at one thing interdimensional in nature? It’s one thing I’ve coated earlier than, however it’s thought-about to be fringe even amongst cryptozoologists. Certainly, the thought of supernatural or interdimensional Sasquatch usually leaves a nasty style within the mouths of cryptozoologists, and may get you laughed out of the room in some locations, however maybe the Bigfoot phenomenon is multifaceted. Possibly there are these experiences which can be of actual flesh and blood creatures, and on the similar time others that cope with issues that merely tackle that look. Is it doable that each types of Sasquatch report can co-exist? Even the famed cryptozoologist Loren Coleman has spoken on this matter, saying:
In order to not come off as a hypocrite, I need to level out that I’ve investigated and written about winged humanoids, Dogman/werewolves, Goatman, Lizard Man, mermaids and a myriad of different non-human entities. In the event that they exist, these apparitions are most actually paranormal in nature – Inter-dimensional, extraterrestrial, demonic (select your personal wording). The distinction with Bigfoot/Sasquatch is that it’s clearly represented in our fossil historical past within the type of strong hominids from the Pleistocene. That makes its existence very viable within the pure world. I respect everybody’s proper to their opinion and don’t make a behavior of questioning anybody’s private experiences. When you consider you may have seen a Bigfoot materialize or vanish, it might very effectively be that there’s a supernatural phenomenon that chooses to take the type of a large, furry humanoid… seemingly associated to Bigfoot, however solely superficially related.
It’s laborious to know, however contemplating that we’re going off of eyewitness experiences in most situations, it appears odd that one would settle for solely people who observe the “norm” and jettison people who go additional into the weird and off the crushed path. Who’s to say which experiences must be accepted and which must be tossed? Maybe there may be some technique to clarify such outlandish experiences with out confining them to the loony bin. Trying on the giant variety of weird experiences like these we now have checked out right here, maybe we have to concede that at the very least a few of it’s one thing maybe weirder than we’d wish to admit, whether or not that’s interdimensional phenomena, aliens, the paranormal, or one thing else. Possibly we now have to think about for a second that the Bigfoot phenomenon may in some circumstances embody issues which can be stranger than we think about, even perhaps stranger than we can think about.
