The Hairy-man phenomenon is already fairly scary sufficient as it’s, and has lengthy been floor zero for all method of sightings of individuals seeing one thing massive, ape-like, and decidedly not human prowling the forests of North America. The primary concept behind these encounters is that we’re probably coping with some undiscovered bipedal primate, maybe even an ancestral species of human, both means a flesh and blood creature. Nevertheless, there was a lot hypothesis over time that this will not be the case in any respect, and that these beings may very well be one thing far weirder than that. Amongst these are reviews of Hairy-man which have seemingly phased out of actuality, gone invisible, or in any other case vanishing proper earlier than witnesses’ eyes. Though maybe not fairly as widespread as extra conventional sightings reviews, they however are available, and counsel that probably one thing extra is occurring right here than a mere undiscovered animal.
One very fascinating account of an apparently vanishing Hairy-man was associated on the radio present Coast to Coast AM on a July 15, 2016 episode hosted by George Noory. The witness, who referred to as himself “Gene,” from Albuquerque, New Mexico, claimed that he had been trying to find elk at round 7 AM out close to a border-town on the Arizona-Mexico border referred to as Gallup. The land was positioned on a Navajo reservation, and described as being very distant, rugged, and mountainous. As Gene prowled by way of the tough panorama searching for his quarry, he claims that he acquired the distinct feeling that one thing massive was following him, maybe even stalking him. He would clarify what occurred subsequent thus (transcript from the unique present):
I am an ex-Navy corpsman. I do know when one thing’s following me. I am about an hour and a half again in and I am means out in the midst of nowhere. So I am going round and I find yourself on a field canyon on high of this mesa that overlooks the boonies. It is like a thousand foot drop off. Okay. Actual fast, I head again in the direction of the field canyon. I used to be attempting to get away from no matter is following me. Swiftly I hear these thundering footsteps and I lean up in opposition to the wall and right here comes about 7 horses out from the center of nowhere into this field canyon. Wild horses. I get across the field canyon and there it’s. It jumps off the highest of a twenty foot useless finish field canyon. I used to be on the backside. I am trying up and now I am taking a look at it. And it jumped, one foot down, one foot up on the facet. It was precisely what everyone says that you simply guys discuss (Noory says Hairy-man) Yeah… and I am in the midst of the Indian reservation on the highest of a bit mesa. It blew my thoughts. It seemed proper at me. I used to be lower than fifty yards from it. I took off operating. I did not freeze. I took off operating.
Then one thing threw a rock at me. It was an enormous rock. I would say it weighed about 8 kilos. It will have killed me. I seemed and I tripped out… at a 120 to 200 yards there it was… and it checked out me. I am sorry George however… that far. I am telling you. It blew my thoughts. It threw an 8 pound rock a minimum of 120 yards. And this factor was not small. This factor was enormous.
The terrified witness then determined to take a shot on the factor together with his rifle and claims that he truly straight hit it, however after taking a number of steps the large beast merely disappeared into skinny air as if it had by no means been there in any respect. When he went to research there have been discovered to be monumental footprints imprinted within the floor, however no blood or different bodily proof left behind, and there was no signal in any respect of the place the beast might have probably gone. He was completely baffled, and would clarify:
I do not know the place it is from however wherever it got here from, once I hit it, it had the flexibility to only disappear into skinny air. You recognize, I seemed… I adopted the footprints. I walked the 120 yards. It wasn’t that removed from the highest of a Mesa it had nowhere to go. By no means ever have I seen it once more and by no means ever have I gone again, not on my own.
There have been a number of equally weird and inexplicable instances of Man of the woods merely vanishing in full view listed in a paper referred to as Vanishing Hairy-man and Anecdotal Accounts: Implications and Challenges for Researchers, by Sharon Cornet. One of many instances coated comes from the summer time of 2000, by a witness named John Bohannon. He claims that had been driving alongside a mud street through the daytime simply west of the Three Rivers Campground, close to Alamogordo, New Mexico, when he noticed a large bipedal, ape-like creature, which was estimated to have been round 8 toes tall and strolling alongside in the identical path as his automobile. The motive force slowed all the way down to gape at it, and the large beast was described as having quick, 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 straight at John for about 100 toes, after which it all of the sudden simply abruptly light away into skinny air, as if it had simply been one way or the other erased. The witness defined that there have been no bushes or something that it might have hidden behind and that it appeared as if it had walked by way 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 essentially classify, seeming to level at vanishing Man of the woods being the results of some kind of inter-dimensional portal. On at the present time, 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 colour, regardless of the sunny climate, and although 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 means I can describe it was as if all of the sudden I used to be trying by way 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 changed into a jumble of shapes that made no sense.
Then, as all of the sudden as this had all occurred, Larry reviews that he appeared to move “a barrier,” and that every part returned to focus however that it was now evening time and the wind had utterly ceased. Upon trying about himself, Larry discovered that the surroundings had modified in different weird methods as effectively. As a substitute of the fir bushes that had been round him earlier than, there was now thick, unrecognizable and wild vegetation just like a jungle, and the air appeared thick and oppressively humid. Although it was now evening and there was no discernible moon within the sky, he discovered that he might nonetheless see every part to some extent, as if there was some mysterious gentle supply casting a faint frosting of sunshine upon the panorama. At this level, Larry claims that the air was pierced by a “steady excessive pitched keening sound,” which instantly stuffed him with an insufferable sense of dread. The witness defined the weird occasions that adopted thus:
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 mentioned the phrase quietly to itself. I used to be so terrified I truly 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 virtually had a manicured look to them. The thumb was positioned decrease (in the direction of the wrist) on the hand than a human’s is. Each hand and arm have been skinny and highly effective trying and each have been coated with thick coarse black hair. I acquired a very good take 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 break up second earlier than and it appeared to fade off into the gap as I returned by way of the Portal.
As quickly as he had scampered a number of 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 appeared to be an oval formed patch of shimmering air that slowly light away till it was gone. Larry then ran off in the direction of his truck as quick as he might with out trying again. The terrified witness later would mirror on what had occurred to him, and got here to the conclusion that it had been some kind of inter-dimensional lure, saying:
On my means residence I used to be completely horrified on the considered what would occur if I have 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 one way or the other saved the Portal hidden from me on the best way in, and I didn’t truly 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 yet one more report, a witness referred to as Ms. Montanez was driving alongside a desert freeway east of El Paso, Texas, when she noticed a Hairy-man reportedly hunched over a useless coyote. She slowed her automobile to get a greater take a look at the weird sight, and claims that as she seemed on the large beast began to kind of sink, as if being absorbed into the bottom, till it was utterly 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 the earth did it go? Nobody is aware of.
Within the e-book The Psychic Man of the woods and Their UFO Connection, by Kewaunee Lapseritis, M.S., there’s an odd account regarding an sighting with a Hairy-man by a gaggle of hikers. In response to one of many witnesses, a Mrs. Jeffrey, the group was getting back from a hike when a big Man of the woods round 9 toes tall stepped out in entrance of them to stare for a second earlier than vanishing proper earlier than their eyes. The group insists that it merely “dematerialized,” blinking out of existence. The witness was reportedly so upset by what she had seen that she didn’t depart her home for per week and refuses to return to the world.
There may be additionally a report from the Texas Hairy-man Analysis Heart from a witness close to Manchester, Texas. The witness claims that in round 1990 he was deer looking in Purple River County, Texas, and was sitting upon a stool ready for deer to move by when he noticed a big, 8 or 9 foot excessive darkish form round 120 yards away from his place. Considering it would simply be a big tree stump, the witness took a glance by way of his telescopic rifle scope and was startled to see that it was a hulking, ape-like creature that was staring proper again at him. The witness noticed it for a while earlier than being momentarily distracted by the snap of a twig or stick close by. He alleges that he seemed away for a break up second and when he went again to the scope to proceed watching the scary creature it was gone. Contemplating that it had been standing in a grassy meadow and had been out of sight for not even a second, it was as if it had simply vanished into skinny air. He would later speculate that the snap he had heard had maybe been a diversion by one other one of many creatures. As to why he had not tried to take a shot at it together with his rifle, the witness mentioned:
Right now, I acquired up and left every part however my rifle and backed out of the world. I had this factor useless to rights in my scope however could not shoot as a result of I didn’t really feel threatened.
There was a lot hypothesis and reams of theories written on the extra inexplicable and paranormal elements of some Hairy-man sightings reviews, of which the phenomenon of Hairy-man spontaneously vanishing into skinny air definitely ranks amongst. On this case there have been theories akin to the concept that Hairy-man are inter-dimensional vacationers using portals or vortices, that they’re ghosts or spirits of some type, that they’re aliens, that they’ve some kind of cloaking potential, or that they’re utilizing psychic powers to merely befuddle our minds to make it solely appear as if they’re vanished or invisible. After all there are additionally the extra skeptical views that that is all simply tall tales, that it was all within the witnesses’ heads and that there was no Hairy-man within the first place. I do not intend to get into the specifics of every of those theories right here, as a lot of them are intricate sufficient to be worthy of separate articles unto themselves, but when there’s something to those instances in any respect, and if they’re to be given consideration equal to different sightings extra in keeping with a flesh-and-blood creature, then it suggests that there’s maybe extra weirdness to the Hairy-man phenomenon than we are able to think about, and that it’s even stranger than beforehand thought.
