I BELIEVE: Montauk Monster Ahoy!

Largely debunked to be just the bloated corpse of a drowned dog, the Montauk Monster still has its believers. These believers are mostly people who probably have never seen the mystical creatures known as dogs. They’ve never seen the wonder of them catching a Frisbee or bringing a stick around to chew on. They’ve never heard the wondrous sound of them waking their owners at 3 AM because a pin dropped in the hallway. They are truly missing out. If you want to believe in the Montauk Monster below is a link!

I BELIEVE: GOATMAN: The Hunt Begins!

Governor's Bridge Road

Governor's Bridge Road

One of my favorite cryptozoological creatures is the Goatman! Part goat, part man! Several people have claimed they have witness this creature stalking the woods of Maryland, particularly around Governor’s Bridge Road AKA Cry Baby Bridge in Davidson, MD. Desperate to see this Bigfoot of Maryland with my own two eyes I have begun a series of investigations to find the Goatman. Goatman will be appearing in the second case in Tara Normal after Plan 10 concludes and I’m excited to share my version of his story.
Joined by my fellow investigators Shelley and Chris, I headed out to find the Goatman a few weekends ago. The trip to Governor’s Bridge Road also allowed us to try and debunk or find evidence of the bridge’s other legends such as the Cry Baby Bridge story. Legend has it you can here the sounds of a ghost baby crying for its mother after she abandoned it or threw it off of the bridge depending on which version of the story you want to believe. When we arrived at the bridge we did notice it is one creepy looking structure. Only big enough to allow flow of traffic at a time and looks cool enough to warrant some type of willies. We did not hear any ghost babies crying nor did we hear any real babies crying.
The second legend we wanted to look into was the phantom disembodied hand which is said to haunt the bride. Legend has it an accident took place on the bridge that left its victim in pieces. The clean up crew found everything but one of his hands. That’s right- Thing from the Addams Family is on the loose in MD. We didn’t find the hand either. Our guess is that when someone stops at the bridge their tires may kick up dirt and the sound of it hitting the car may make someone assume they heard a phantom hand tapping on their bumper. If that person is insane. I’m guessing they looked in their rear view mirror, saw a rabbit and jumped to the conclusion its a hand walking around on its own.
The third legend was the case of the blond hitchhiking bobby soxer ghost. Supposedly this attractive ghost is seen hitchhiking by the bridge and when you go to pick her up, she’s no longer there! Big negative on this one but I would like to investigate this further as she’s is supposed to drop dead gorgeous.
The main event was our search for the Goatman. We were unable to turn up any evidence of the Goatman on this investigation however I am about to contact a person who claims they did see the creature. The sighting didn’t happen near the bridge however once I am able to interview the witness I’ll post the answers here on the Paranormal Blog and update you on my next hunt for the Goatman! Stay tuned!

I BELIEVE: GOATMAN: Eyewitness account of the Goatman!

taraanomalieadfinalcopy1After my own search for the Goatman, I got this great opportunity to speak to someone who has seen the creature in person- or in half-goat, half-person. Read below for Dan Judd’s story. With all of this information, I can’t wait to go another search! Dan has told me he has even more details and as soon as I get them I will post them!

Q: We recently set out to find the goatman at its rumored hangout Governors bridge road. Where did your sighting take place?

Dan:When i saw goat man it was actually off Race Track Rd. Where the new development is now. It use to be all woods and the old barns and stables from the Bowie Racetrack were still standing. I had originally set out on my bike looking for an old bus in the woods that a friend of my dads was telling me about. I entered in from the top the R- Section. I forget the name of the road now. But it’s the road that runs next to Rocklidge Park. I was walking my bike in the woods and came to a fork in the path. One going deep into the woods and one going down a hill that lead to field. Since i was by myself i went down the hill into the field rather deep into the woods. I was walking my bike since the grass around the path was high and I wasn’t familiar with the woods or any of the stories i later heard about them. This also had to be about 3 or 4pm in the afternoon. As I was walking I felt as if i was being watched, yeah i know cliche, so I stopped looked up and to my right. And at about 200 feet away was a creature staring at me.

Q: What time of day was it and were you alone?

Dan:Yes I was alone and it was about 3 or 4pm. So it was still bright and sunny and clear at that point.

Q: can you describe the creature for us? Did it have horns? How tall was it? Did it make any sounds? Be as descriptive as you can be.

Dan:When I looked up and saw the creature I was scared to saw the least. It was about 7 feet tall. I am making that estimate because it was standing under a smaller tree that looked like a younger tree. It had a thin long head much like a deer or a goat. A long neck down to shoulders, similar or a man. and it was completely covered in fur. At this point I turned around and booked it out of there. I looked back as i turned and it wad taken off the opposite direction. It wasn’t exactly running but it wasn’t trotting. It was definitely on 2 feet. But it was more of a longer stride. And as it went through the brush it didn’t push any branches or foliage out of the way like a person would as they are walking or running through the woods. I distinctly remember seeing ears and no horns. It didn’t look like the devil like a lot of people and pictures depict it. It was brown and had a white patch coming down from his neck to back that was white and in the shape of a diamond. It looked back once at me as i took off and it definitely was not human . but because it was upright and had shoulders and arms it was not a deer. It moved similar to a human but didn’t act like one, since it didn’t block the branches just kind of let it hit it in the body and face. Long gaping stride but semi nimble too.

Q: Some reports state the goatman is a homeless man. Is there any possibility of this?

Dan: I can certainly see how some would think its a homeless man. But what I saw was not human. It didn’t make any noises i noticed. it was ran off. I am sure a homeless dude wouldn’t just run from a 15 year old by himself either.

Q: have you ever had any other paranormal experiences? If so please describe.

Dan: My dad use to live in Brentwood and we went to St Rose Catholic Church. I went down in the basement of this really old church to use the bathroom. It was the middle of the summer, and i got a horrible chill, again like I was being watched. But I was alone. And it felt like something was real close to me. I later finally saw the movie the Excorsist, and read about it. St Rose was the church that the movie is based on. And there was a lot written about it and still being haunted by the Devil himself and other spirits. Not many people fill the church and kneelers at empty pews always fall and weird non-human and non-musical noises are heard all the time when we were in mass there.
I’ve been to Governor’s Rd and Cry Baby’s Bridge and saw and heard nothing there.
I’ve also been to the Glendale Hospital. Nothing special but I was scared the entire time since this was after goatman. And that’s another rumored place of his. The only really weird thing we saw was a white Dove flying repeatedly into a wall in a room that looked like it was an old theater.

I BELIEVE: Bigfoot almost got run over-not by a reindeer!

A couple claims to have almost hit Bigfoot with their car in Pennsylvania. To be fair, from the description given it could’ve been an old gym teacher of mine from high school. We used to track her from the prints she made in the woods beside the school.
In the eyewitness account the creature leaped over the car! I had no idea Bigfoot had that kind of agility. Now I do! And so do you…read the entire story at Paranormal News!



I BELIEVE: How Do You get a One Armed Polish Yeti Out of A Tree?

Yeti in Poland?

Yeti in Poland?

I don’t know why every time someone tries to film a cryptozoological creature the person’s hands get all shaky but it’s happened again, folks. This time in Poland! The Morning Starr has reported on the story of Piotr Kowalski. a 27 year old man with the shakiest hands next to an 88 year old caffeine addict on a Red Bull bender, and his story about how he tried to film what he claims is an honest-to-Biskupin Yeti, the snow loving relative to Bigfoot. Check out the video to see the Yeti lumber around like a man in a suit trying to walk over some rocks!

Here’s a better video of Mitch Hedberg explaining why the videos of Bigfoot and his friends are always blurry. RIP Mitch!

I BELIEVE: Montauk Monster II: The Revenge!

Montauk Monster Dead In Panama!
Ahoy! We’ve got another Montauk Monster! These things keep winding up dead! This one’s way far from home however and it’s end was far more tragic. Reportedly a group of teenagers from Panama beat the creature to death. The real tragedy is when aliens do finally land here on Earth (HAVE THEY ALREADY?!? OMG! EMOTICON!) they’re going to be armed once they get wind out of how these punks in Panama treated this poor cryptozoological oddity.

The Telegraph has the whole story!
