Real Mothman Sightings – Recent Mothman Sightings

Real Mothman Sightings - Recent Mothman Sightings

In this article we will be taking a look at the real Mothman sightings that have occurred AFTER the famous Point Pleasant incident in West Virginia, in 1966.

Many visitors to this site end up looking for information on that famous report…but few of them realize that the Mothman sightings continued…all over the world!


The Nuclear Power Plant in Ukraine

Back in 1986 a group of locals who lived (and worked) around a nuclear power plant in Ukraine reported incidents linked to a large winged humanoid creature with piercing red eyes.

These locals also complained about terrible nightmares and ‘silent’ phone calls after they had come face to face with the strange entity.

The sightings seemed to escalate until the 26th of April that year…when reactor number 4 at the plant suffered a catastrophic steam explosion.

This resulted in the worst nuclear accident in history – the Chernobyl disaster.

At first the government, and the locals, thought that the internal fire was nothing more than a small electrical disturbance. They were ordered to help the rescue effort and they obliged willingly.

The locals and the authority workers had no idea that their rescue efforts were actually contributing to their own end – they were being poisoned by radiation as they worked…

Within a fortnight of this nuclear incident – most of the people involved in the cleanup were dead.

Numerous deathbed reports described a headless bird like creature with a 20 foot wingspan, flying above them as they tried to rescue the doomed nuclear plant. They firmly believed that this entity was trying to warn them of their fate – trying desperately to lead them away from the radiation.


The Freiburg Shrieker

On September the 10th, 1978, a team of miners were getting ready for work in an area of Germany. As they approached the mouth of the cave into the mine, their path was obstructed by a tall man in a dark trench coat.

They approached the dark character to ask why he was blocking their route to work…and realized he was not wearing a trench coat…and he was not a regular man!

The figure was an entity with large wings pinned to his sides.

The miners just stood their – rooted to the spot in fear.

Without warning, the winged entity let out a piercing shriek that tore at the ears of the mine workers. They dropped their equipment and ran terrified into the night.

The Freiburg Shrieker

About an hour after this incident was reported, the mine the group were due to work in, collapsed.

Was this dark stranger sent to warn the miners of the impending disaster in the mine?

Many believe this to be the case.

This dark figure later became known as the Freiburg Shrieker.


2006 – Wisconsin

One dark night in Wisconsin, 2006, a Cherokee man and his son were making a car journey home when they suddenly had to slam on the breaks to avoid hitting a figure in the middle of the road.

But, this figure wasn’t actually standing on the road…it was hovering a couple of feet above the tarmac!

Both father and son were scared, very scared! They decided to make a break for it and floored the car off into the distance…

But the strange creature followed them…

They couldn’t outrun it in the car – at one point it was able to hover backwards right in front of their windshield. They just kept on flooring the car, staring into the hovering creatures red eyes.

Eventually the creature broke off from it’s pursuit, and the father and son headed straight for the local police station.

In his report, the father stated that:

“The first thing I saw were the eyes and what I thought maybe were teeth. It had a 14 foot wingspan at least, it was huge, It almost covered half the road. It was close enough for me to reach out and touch it, it almost hit the windshield. It had a white mouth, the eyes were the size of reflectors. The body was attached to the wings. It had grey and brown hair, but not too much hair, it was more fleshy, kind of like a bat. That’s why I called it a man bat because it looked like a cross between a man and a bat.”


The Japanese Earthquake

Most of you will remember the 9.0 earthquake that hit Japan back in 2011, and the 15 meter tsunami that followed…

After this disaster, the internet was flooded with Japanese reports stating that a ‘winged creature’ had flown through the country in the hours leading up to this horrific natural disaster.

Was this yet another sighting of the Mothman?

Was he once again on a crusade to warn the Japanese people about the incoming disaster?

The Chicago Mothman

The Chicago Mothman

Over the last few weeks I have been gathering updated information on the ‘Mothman’ Indrid Cold. During this process I stumbled across numerous (relatively recent) reports on the Chicago Mothman…

Another article was born…


The Photo

In August of 2011 a couple returned to Chicago, the city where they once lived, to complete some business. After their work was done, they decided to reminisce and visit their old neighborhood.

When they were driving past their old ‘hunting grounds’ the wife suddenly remembered about a giant statue of a native American nearby. She convinced her husband to take a short drive to see if the statue still stood – she wanted to take a quick photo of it to show their friends back home.

A strange bat-like object flying above the statue

They eventually located the impressive statue and managed to take a few angled snaps of it.

When they returned home to sharpen up the pictures they were surprised to see a strange bat-like object flying above the statue – they did not notice it when they were taking the photographs.

At first they thought it was some species of a bird but they quickly realized that it was way too big – what was it?


Two Red Eyes

A couple of days after the couple’s photo was taken, two female students in the Miller Park area were getting ready to go out for the evening when they saw a pair of red eyes glaring at them through the window.

The girl’s apartment was actually on the third floor so they had no idea how the creature behind these eyes was suspending itself – they left the apartment screaming in fear and eventually a gathering of concerned residents grouped around them downstairs.

Two Red Eyes

Once they had managed to calm the girls down they were able to listen to their story involving the red eyes outside their window.

The residents searched the outside of the building but there was no sign of this red-eyed intruder.

Several hours after this incident, another group of students in the area came face to face with a seven foot tall ‘creature’ – believed to be the same creature that was perched outside the girl’s window.

They later described it to be dark gray, or black with deep red eyes – it stood there staring at them for a matter of seconds before flying off into the night sky.


The Humanoid Bat-Like Creature

In September of the same year (2011), a mass sighting was reported when a humanoid bat-like creature was spotted in Chicago flying about 12 feet above the ground.

This sighting seemed to spark a tidal wave of similar sightings throughout the city leading up to the winter months.

The Black Eyed Girl of Cannock Chase

The Black Eyed Girl of Cannock Chase

Paranormal reports covering the demonic black-eyed children have appeared in pop culture since the late 1990’s. Many believe that these supposed paranormal creatures who resemble children are nothing more than a twisted urban legend.

The remainder of us are not so sure…

In this article we will be taking a closer look at the paranormal report of the black eyed girl of Cannock Chase.


The Daily Star Reports

Throughout the period of September 2014, British tabloid newspaper The Daily Star ran a handful of front page articles covering the black eyed girl of Cannock Chase. This is an area in Staffordshire, England.

The reports were eventually taken up by a local paranormal investigator named Lee Brickley. He was determined to get to the bottom of this case as he had heard similar reports from this area…decades before…


The Girl

Brickley ended up tracking down an unnamed lady who claimed she had suddenly heard a terrifying scream, whilst waking with her daughter in a wooded area of Channock Chase. She immediately thought that a child was in danger, somewhere near her location, and started darting about the area to find the source of the scream.

After several minutes of desperately searching the woman and her daughter stopped to catch their breath. It was then that they felt a presence behind them.

They turned to find a young girl dressed in white standing there. She stood silently with her hands over her eyes – as if she was playing a game of ‘hide and seek’.

Black eyed girl

The woman slowly approached the young girl in white and asked if she was okay – the girl then removed her hands from her face revealing her eyes…

Brickley’s report states that the woman claimed:

“That’s when I saw they were completely black, no iris, no white, nothing, I jumped back and grabbed my daughter. When I looked again, the child was gone. It was so strange.”


Brickley’s Aunt

Lee Brickley’s report on the girl also contained information that he had obtained from his own aunt – she believed that she had encountered the very same girl, in the same area…30 years prior to the 2014 incident.

She claimed that in 1982, she had heard a small girl calling for help. She had turned to find there was a young girl, dressed in white, running away from her.

She ran after the child and eventually caught up with her. She placed a hand on her shoulder and the child turned around to reveal completely black eyes.

The young girl then continued running until she seemed to disappear into thin air!


Further Reports

Drone footage taken in April, 2015, was uploaded to YouTube after the pilot claimed he had managed to capture the black eyed girl of Cannock Chase on camera.

The Image Captured by The Drone

He claims that his drone flight camera unintentionally caught a strange girl in the background of it’s recording, standing there motionless, dressed in white…

Medium Christine Hamlett believes that she managed to capture a photograph of the girl in white. She also believes that her psychic gift has allowed her to ‘connect’ with the young spirit.

Her conversations with the entity lead her to believe that the girl died during the Victorian era. She apparently lost her life to diphtheria – a disease that can cause a paralysis of the eyes, which makes them appear dark and sunken.

The Blue Bell Hill Ghost

The Blue Bell Hill Ghost

One of the most famous paranormal reports to come out of Kent is that of the Blue Bell Hill ghost – it has been covered by all the top British newspapers and registers many repeat experiences…


The Suicidal Woman

The most famous paranormal entity from this haunted road is that of a woman who chooses to run out in front of motorists late at night. Eyewitness reports claim that she stands still and locks eyes with the driver before being hit by the vehicle.

Once the car hits this female entity she immediately vanishes – No evidence of a collision has ever been found, nor has there ever been a victim found either.

Research into this area points to this paranormal entity being that of a lady who died tragically in 1965, near the bridge over The Old Chatham Road.

She was involved in a two-car collision when transporting three of her friends to a function. Only one of the women travelling in the car survived the crash.

The driver of the car was due to be wed to her childhood sweetheart the following day – many locals believe that it is her ghost that haunts the Blue Bell Hill.


Paranormal Reports Linked to Blue Bell Hill

About four years after the tragic collision, a male driver posted a report that claimed he had seen two female entities walking down the road towards his car. He was on his way home to Rochester, late at night, when he saw two pedestrians walking towards him.

They had a slight light glow to them as they walked along the roadside so the man slowed down to get a better look. As soon as his car decreased in speed the pair of pedestrians vanished into thin air.

Paranormal Reports Linked to Blue Bell Hill

The same man is reported to encountered the same two ghostly pedestrians about 3 months later.

This time they decided to walk in the middle of the road causing the driver to smash straight through them. When he stopped to check on the carnage behind him there was no sign of the two pedestrians he had hit!


The Maurice Goodenough Incident

Maurice Goodenough was a bricklayer from nearby Rochester. Late at night, on the 13th of July, 1974, he was shocked to witness a young girl hurl herself in front of his car as he drove along Blue Bell Hill.

He slammed on his brakes and jumped out of the car to tend to the girl he had hit, she was lying injured at the side of the road.

Having no medical training, Maurice had no idea what to do with the injured girl. He figured moving her would only make matters worse, so he covered her in a blanket from the back of his car and sped off to the nearby police station in Rochester.

When he returned with the police to the scene of the accident there was no sign of the girl. All that was left on the side of the road was the blanket he had used to cover her injured body.

Police called an official search on the area that went on for a couple of days – all the local hospital records were checked but there had been no admissions matching the description of the girl.

The Maurice Goodenough Incident

Goodenough was interviewed by the News of the World that Saturday night and stuck to his story…even though he was still extremely traumatised by the incident.

He claimed that he was not mad – he had definitely hit a young lady that had simply vanished.

The press had a field day with his paranormal claims and eventually published articles covering the accident back in 1965 – was this girl the ghost of one of the female passengers who had died tragically that night?


The Ian Sharpe Incident

Late one Sunday evening in November, 1992, Ian Sharpe, a 54-year-old coach driver was on his way home to Maidstone.

When he neared the Aylesford southbound turn-off of the A229 at Blue Bell Hill, a young woman walked straight in front of his vehicle. He claimed that the woman calmly stood there and stared straight into his eyes as he crashed into her and run straight over her body.

Sharpe got out of his vehicle fearing the worse…but when he checked the area he found no sign of a body.

Shaken and petrified, he travelled straight to the local police station.

The police managed to calm him down and eventually explained that the area had received many similar reports over the years – it was as though they believed the paranormal incidents themselves.

They did agree to return to the area of the accident with Sharpe but yet again – no body was found. Ian Sharpe later described it as the most terrifying experience of his life.

Violent Bigfoot Encounters – 1855

Violent Bigfoot Encounters - 1855

I think I’m correct in saying that this is the first Bigfoot/Yeti/Sasquatch article that we have published on this site – so it’s way overdue really!

In this article we will be taking a look at one of the most violent Bigfoot encounters on record – the report from 1855, in what is now known as Oklahoma


Native American Bigfoot Legends – 1855

In 1855 in what is now Oklahoma, a small group of native Americans and a ‘half breed’ man named Joshua LeFlore were part of a cavalry unit put together to keep the peace in their local region.

LeFlore was the captain of this native American unit and he had recently received orders to locate and capture/stop a band of outlaws who were terrorising some of the local farmers.

There had been numerous reports linking these outlaws to crop stealing and the kidnapping of innocent children in the area.

LeFlore gathered up 30 of his men and rode off into the sunset to put an end to this outlaw outfit…


The Discovery

After a couple of days of searching in vain, LeFlore decided to call it quits and head back to their local headquarters. It was shortly after this point in time that one of his men noticed something in the distance.

LeFlore pulled out his telescope and zoomed in on what appeared to be a small group of men, not more than 600 yards away from their position.

The group of lawmen charged towards the men in the distance and watched them disperse into the nearby forest. LeFlore ordered his men to follow the fleeing group.

As soon as they entered the forest they became aware of a strong, stale odour of rotting flesh and blood – the forest area actually smelled like death itself!

Native American Bigfoot Legends

Before long the strong smell seemed to ‘spook’ the group’s horses and they bolted from the wooded area leaving the cavalry men to proceed on foot.

Eventually the group arrived at a small clearing…but this was certainly no ordinary bandit camp.

They found the bodies of numerous children scattered around the area in different stages of decay. Three hairy bipedal ape-like creatures were sitting among the corpses chewing the flesh off their bones.

This heartbreaking scene was all too much for LeFlore to handle – he raced into the creatures wielding his sword in one had and his pistol in the other.

The shot and stabbed at the three creatures numerous times but nothing seemed to put them down. Eventually he was caught out as one of the creatures managed to sneak up behind him…and rip his head clean off his body.


Native American Fury

Up until this point – the native American cavalry group had been rooted to the spot in shock and fear. The sight of their captain being decapitated finally snapped them out of their daze.

They calmly aimed for the ape creatures head’s and within seconds the fight was over. The sensible rifle head shots took out the small hairy group with ease.

Bigfoot in the Dark

With the creatures dead, the cavalry group now had time to investigate the area properly. They uncovered the bodies of 19 dead children from the local area.

The men set down their buffalo rifles and got to work on 20 graves – 19 for the poor children and one for their fallen captain.

The report indicates that the group opted to burn the bodies of the ape-like creatures, because they felt they were too evil to receive a proper burial.

Spring Heeled Jack Sightings

Spring Heeled Jack Sightings

In this article we will be taking a closer look at the Spring Heeled Jack sightings from 1808 to more recent incidents. What was this entity and what did it want?


1808

The first documented encounter of Spring Heeled Jack came to light in 1808 within the offices of the Sheffield Times.

The editor of the newspaper received a strange letter explaining about an entity/ghost that spent it’s time playing pranks on the living. Apparently this ghost had existed for many years.

The strange beast was able to jump huge heights from a standing position and seemed to be made out of thin air – striking the supernatural beast had no effect whatsoever (weapons just passed straight through it).

The author of the letter referred to this entity as Park Ghost and Spring Heeled Jack.


1837

In 1837 an unnamed female was outside Blackheath Fair in England when out of nowhere a strange figure appeared and started to violently attack her.

The lady ended up receiving numerous cut injuries to her skin and most of her clothes had been ripped off her body.

When she was later interviewed she claimed that the assailant had definitely been male but there was something ‘off’ about him. He had a surreal look of madness on his face and his fingers seemed to be long cold iron tips.

Jack on a rooftop

After hearing about the crime, the mayor of the area decided to publicize it to warn his public…and ended up receiving hundreds of letters claiming that they to had been attacked or chased by this strange, tall figure.


Vigilante Groups

Numerous people came forward with claims about being attacked by this strange creature – most of them were too scared about being labeled crazy to report the incidents before 1837.

Local vigilante groups were formed in an attempt to catch this crazed criminal.

These groups were extremely well setup by the public and patrolled the streets on a shift basis – they even encountered the entity on occasions but were unable to catch him due to his speed and athleticism.

Word soon spread from these groups to the public – they were not chasing a man…they were chasing something supernatural!


Further Attacks

About 12 months later the attacks seemed to grow in intensity. One night a young lady was walking home when something jumped out of the shadows and breathed blue flames at her.

The figure then closed it’s mouth and pounced away in a sort of kangaroo movement. The same night brought in many similar reports…

The reports consisted of a tall man with scary red eyes who could breathe blue fire and would always jump, never walk or run.

Park Ghost and Spring Heeled Jack

The final attack in London during this time period is probably the most famous, it involved a young lady named Jane.

Jane was having a conversation in her home with her visiting sister when she heard a loud knocking at her front door.

She was a little afraid of opening the door so she asked the visitor through the locked door who they were. The visitor quickly replied:

“I am a police officer for god sake bring me a light for we have caught Spring Heeled Jack”.

Jane hastily opened to the door, only to be confronted by a tall man breathing blue flames from his smiling mouth. She screamed and tried to close the door but she was too late – Spring Heeled Jack was on her clawing in a flash.

Thankfully Jane’s sister heard the screams and the two of them managed to get the entity back through the door. It then ran off into the darkness.


Let’s Move To The Country

The Spring Heeled Jack sightings died out until the 1870’s when for some reason, they moved to the English countryside.

Many incidents involved local groups in towns hunting down and setting up traps to catch the supernatural creature, but with no luck.

After these attacks it’s almost as if ‘Jack’ realized his time was up in the UK, and many believe he somehow moved on to America in the 1880’s…


New Hunting Grounds

During the 1880’s there were many reports in Kentucky of a tall man attacking people at night. Eyewitness reports claimed that the culprit had long icy cold iron like fingers, pointy ears and that he shot blue flames – but from his chest (not his mouth).

These incidents seemed to die out within months and all of a sudden…’Jack’ seemed to disappear from people’s minds.

This lull in attacks lasted up until 1939 when Cape Cod seemed to be hit by the strange entity.

Now Jack seemed to have new powers in his arsenal – eyewitnesses claim that he could now levitate and even had the power to disappear and reappear miles away within a blink of the eye!

It was at this time that Jack picked up the newer nickname of the Black Flash from the American public.

In recent times incidents involving ‘Jack’ have been reported in Canada (1973), Texas (1979) and back in the UK in 1986 (very famous case involving a British army officer).

Are Mermaids Dangerous?

Are Mermaids Dangerous?

One of the first ever ‘paranormal’ articles I published online covered the subject of mermaids…and I haven’t really touched on this subject ever since!

Most of us in the western world consider mermaids to be nothing more than mixed up folklore chucked onto the silver screen by Disney…but in other parts of the world mermaids are looked upon in an entirely different light…

So, are mermaids dangerous and do they really exist?

Below is a recent report from Zimbabwe…


The Boys

Not that long ago in Zimbabwe, a group of three young boys were messing about when they should of been herding cattle for their parents.

They were in the process of working with the cattle when they noticed a rather large fish splashing about in a nearby dam.

Two of the boys thought they were equipped enough to take on this impressive fish and decided to jump into the water and catch it with their bare hands…

To their horror…this was no ordinary fish…it was a local water spirit (mermaid).

a local water spirit (mermaid)

The boy who was left standing on the bank witnessed the strange creature drag the two boys under the water then pull them to the opposite bank.

He didn’t hang about for his friends – he immediately ran off in terror to get help.

He returned within minutes with a group of adults as backup and they found the two boys critically injured on the dam’s bank.

As they neared the stricken lads, the mermaid pounced back out of the water and dragged them back into it’s depths.

This time they did not return…alive.


The Dam Construction

This particular dam was built back in 2012 and many of the workers claimed to have had encounters with this evil water spirit.

During it’s construction, there were numerous worker reports of damaged machinery.

These reports all seemed to center around the same culprit – a water spirit.

The men in charge of the operation laughed off these suggestions until the dam workers started disappearing…and then reappearing as lifeless corpses floating on the water.

Was a mermaid really behind these strange deaths?


Rose

Just last month (Feb), a 45-year-old teacher named Rose was walking home from work when she realized she was late for an appointment.

She decided to take a short cut across the river…something most locals were far too afraid to attempt.

This turned out to be a bad choice…she was set upon by a mermaid and what she later described as a ‘merman’.

she was set upon by a mermaid and what she later described as a 'merman'.

She managed to escape her attackers and survive but she was left with some rather hideous injuries to her mouth and legs.

She later reported the attack to the police and showcased her injuries to the local press stating that the water spirits were savage yet extremely beautiful.


Are Mermaids Dangerous?

There’s no getting away from the fact that people in these parts of the world believe in the existence of mermaids – even the police are too scared to investigate these ‘cursed’ rivers and bodies of water.

Do they also believe in what the locals are saying?

Tips on Dealing with Paranormal Activities

We have listed some of the surefire ways on how you can deal with paranormal activities. We hope that by the end of this article, you will have already been equipped and armed with sufficient knowledge on what to do if you experience one in the future.

Perhaps it is normal to encounter things in life that may weird us out, frighten or scare us, or just outright make us scream at the top of our lungs. Even in this time and age when everything is easily accessible through the Internet, there are just things that Science finds difficult to explain.

Imagine catching yourself alone in your own house and for some reason a drawer opens up and the air is still and you are far away from it.

Who do you call?

For sure, you would have thought of Ghostbusters, but unfortunately, they are not real. But it’s a good thing that paranormal psychics are here to help you answer stranger questions from strange occurrences in your life brought about by paranormal activities.

But first, let us talk about what is the paranormal, because having had a paranormal experience does not necessarily mean you are dealing with ghosts of the dead or spirits from a different world.

These can very well be energies around you which mean you no harm.

Energies are able to communicate and, more often than not, only need help to know what happened to them so they can finally get a closure and move on.

We have listed some of the surefire ways on how you can deal with paranormal activities. We hope that by the end of this article, you will have already been equipped and armed with sufficient knowledge on what to do if you experience one in the future.


Learning Everything You Can About Paranormal

Not everyone is brave enough to do a research about the paranormal, especially at night. That is why we recommend that you do it out in public with the sun up where light is abundant.

We feel secure and safe in places where it is bright. When doing your research, steer clear of websites that have ominous background music or those that have really dark layout and color scheme.

These elements of the website should not distract you from learning what you want to learn. Watch out for websites that delve deep in the subject matter without using words that are unfamiliar to most humans.

You should be able to learn where most paranormal activities, sightings, and manifestations usually occur so you can prepare yourself should you encounter one in the future.


Being Skeptical and Logical at The Same Time Goes a Long Way

There will come a time when your brain will play tricks on you. It will make you see, feel, and hear—and ultimately make you believe—that you are indeed experience an out of this world activity. This happens mostly when we are scared.

Our minds conjure images that are really not there in the first place. What you can do is compose yourself and do not cause a scene, especially if you are in a public space.

Close your eyes and try to think well if there is a logical explanation of what happened. Those scary and weird noises on the second floor may just as well be mice, the wind, or pipes. It could be the television.

If you panic, you will likely cause a disturbance; worse, you might end up embarrassing yourself. Do not discount the fact that your friends may be playing a game with you, in other term, pranking you for fun.

This is not a good thing to do to someone as it may cause trauma and other permanent fear.


Asking For Professional Help

Some spirits, energies, or ghosts would bother you to no end, and it is normal that you feel scared and helpless. When this time comes and you are no longer able to sleep well at night because of this, asking for help from a paranormal psychic is not something that you should be ashamed of.

Professionals that can help you deal with these paranormal activities, sightings, and manifestations can be in the form of an exorcist, a psychic, a clairvoyant, or a medium.

These experts will know what to do with them and are able to provide you with necessary steps on what you can do to stop these from happening.

They will make sure that these spirits—evil or otherwise—are expelled from your property so you can start getting a good night’s sleep again. Amulets and charms are usually given by paranormal psychics to keep you safe from them, but methods are varying.

These professionals are trained to deal with the paranormal and their years of extensive research and psychic will speak for themselves. You may go online and check for their reputation so you can feel better.


Being Around Friends Also Helps

While professionals tend to your house and dispel the energies bugging you there, you can be with friends for the moment. There is strength in number, or so a popular saying goes.

Be with your close friends who would never take advantage of your situation and vulnerability. You may start talking about happy memories from the past to keep you distracted from the situation.

Whether they are your family, your close friends, your roommate, be with the people you trust the most who know how to calm you down in a very stressful situation; people who can easily lighten up the mood.

You can choose to put on a really funny movie and start laughing to your heart’s desire. Eat your favorite comfort food. You can also choose to go to the nearest church, if you are religious, and start praying and giving thanks for the good things you have received so far and ask for perpetual guidance and safety from the evil elements of this world.

There are worlds that coexists with us, and it is important to recognize that. Some entities, although invisible to the naked eye, are following us wherever we go as they are trying to communicate with us.

We hope that this article helped you enough on how you can react if you experience a paranormal activity. If you wish to share more tips, you can leave a comment down below.

Are Skinwalkers Real?

Are Skinwalkers Real?

The world abounds with tales of supernatural or otherwise cryptic creatures, and North America is no exception.

Along with the ever-elusive Sasquatch or “Bigfoot” run less well-known but even more spine-chilling stories about the Navajo skinwalker.

The skinwalker is believed to be a holy man or sage who is so connected with nature that he or she can assume the form of any animal.

But this amazing ability is not gained without a price: the holy man or witch must perform an evil act, such as murder, before they can unlock this power.

Additionally, they must kill the animal they wish to take the form of, making their connection with nature truly perverse. Are skinwalkers real, or is it just a legend with no credibility?


Navajo

Many people have claimed to have had encounters with skinwalkers. Many Navajo people, especially older ones, believe without a shadow of a doubt that skinwalkers do indeed exist.

They believe so strongly that many of them are reluctant to talk to outsiders about the skinwalkers, fearing that they may attract these terrifying and malicious creatures into their lives.

In addition, it is believed that non-skinwalkers are not allowed to witness the ritual that leads to the creation of skinwalkers, making information even more scarce – the skinwalkers truly are shrouded in mystery.

Example of a Skinwalker

Because older Navajo people are afraid to talk about the skinwalkers, most of our information comes from younger Navajo people who don’t necessarily believe in these tales.

One very interesting point is that many of the stories of encounters with skinwalkers come from people who are not Navajo, even people who have never heard of the skinwalkers and, upon looking for information about what they’ve experienced, come to the conclusion that they have witnessed one of these creatures.

These encounters usually occur on or in very close proximity to Navajo reservations – this fits the skinwalker story, since only Navajo people can become skinwalkers.


Encounters

One woman claims she was driving through Navajo territory at night when suddenly a man appeared, running next to her car. This would be odd even if it weren’t for the fact that the car was driving at sixty miles per hour!

To put that in perspective, the highest speed at which a human has been recorded running is 28 miles per hour.

The man tapped on her window as she was driving, gave a sinister-looking smile, and then ran away at unbelievably high speeds, disappearing into the night.

After researching, she came to the conclusion that she had encountered a skinwalker.

In Sedona, Arizona, not too far from this woman’s encounter, a man claims to have experienced the same thing: a human-like creature running past his vehicle even though he was driving at sixty-five miles per hour!

Arizona is full of stories of encounters with skinwalkers. If they’re real, this is probably no coincidence, since Arizona is the area in which many Navajo people live – evil medicine men or witches among them would have to be the source.

Winslow and Window Rock is especially famous for these encounters; you’d have to be very brave and perhaps stupid to go there looking for a skinwalker (I would not recommend it).

A second interesting story comes from when a girl was visiting her grandmother in Nevada. The elderly woman was 100 % Navajo, and the little girl remembers her shouting at her brother to “get away from it!”

She then saw a very large, unnatural looking dog which was staring at her grandmother. This dog apparently had yellow eyes.

The grandmother lamented that “it had found her.”

The otherworldly-looking dog eventually left (the girl can’t remember if it was at a high speed or not, as this is what skinwalkers are known for), and shortly thereafter the grandmother moved away from her house, believing fully that she had encountered a skinwalker who was trying to do her harm.

Another encounter occurred when a man living on a farm near Navajo land heard what he thought to be wild dogs outside.

He grabbed his shotgun, hoping to scare them off from the farm, but as soon as he pumped it the dogs looked directly at him, stood up on their hind legs, and ran away at incredible speeds.

Although his family believed in skinwalkers, this man did not; he does now.

Something similar happened in New Mexico, when a woman saw a strange presence outside of her house one night.

At first she thought it was a man, until she got close enough to see that, whatever it was, this bipedal, muscular creature had the head and body of a wolf.

She screamed (as most of us in this situation probably would!) before, again, the entity ran away at an unbelievably high speed.

A man with the body and head of a wolf sounds familiar to those of us interested in folklore: could it be that the so-called “werewolf” is actually a Navajo skinwalker?

One night, a student was taking the bus home from a basketball game. The bus would have to drive through Navajo territory. This is when another eyewitness encounter transpired.

Suddenly, the bus driver sped up to about 85 miles per hour, and the student was surprised by this as the driver was usually very careful.

But then he saw it: a creature running straight towards the bus. The entity, which looked like a wolf-like human and had glowing yellow eyes, made eye contact with the student and smiled, showing off its sharp, canine-like teeth.

All of the other students were asleep, but this student and the bus driver shared a glance, realizing that they had just experienced something truly bizarre.


The Subject of Skinwalkers

Are skinwalkers real? The question is difficult to answer. It’s certainly interesting that so many of these stories share features in common, and that many of the witnesses were non-Navajo people (meaning they didn’t necessarily believe the stories) or had never even heard of the legend of the skinwalkers.

It seems that, usually, the skinwalkers are wolf or dog-like, sometimes with eerie yellow glowing eyes, and capable of running at supernatural speeds.

I wonder if Bigfoot could be a skinwalker who has taken on the form a bear – just imagine a half-human, half-bear creature walking around on two legs and you have something that looks like a Bigfoot.

It seems unlikely, though, since Bigfoot encounters are described all over the country and not just in the southwestern United States…

The Brooklyn Ghost – The Wailing

The Brooklyn Ghost - The Wailing

On Brooklyn’s east side one night in 1894, five young women were making their way home through the curling fog. They decided to take a short cut near Knickerbocker Avenue and cut through a deserted lot.

They were about halfway across the lot when they noticed a strange white floating light directly ahead of them that seemed to be made up of the surrounding fog.

Without warning a piercing wail cut through the night, sending a bolt of fear down each of their spines.

The five women were rooted to the spot in fear as the white light drew closer and closer…until they could make out the ghostly image of a sunken-faced woman, covered in a white clothing, wading through the dark night’s fog towards them!

The group of young women had seen enough – they bolted in the opposite direction and managed to make it home safely.


Confrontation

The women spent the next hour explaining to their older brothers what they had just seen. The group of brothers decided to head to the abandoned lot and confront this female entity.

They arrived at the lot and decided to stand back-to-back in a circle, revolvers drawn and ready for action.

Confrontation

Suddenly they saw the female apparition rise slowly from the ground with it’s arms outstretched towards them. Their bravado was soon lost – they bolted exactly like their younger sisters had!

When they arrived home they spent the remainder of the night telling neighbors what they had witnessed and advising them to keep their windows and doors locked.


The Following Night…

The following night, as the story unfolded across Brooklyn, a large posse of concerned residents got together opposite the lot where the ghostly incident had taken place.

They stayed there until the early hours of the morning but dispersed just before dawn – had this group of brothers fooled them into thinking there was an entity in Brooklyn?

A local man named Peter Woelfel decided to take matters into his own hands the following night and set out to rubbish the claims put forward by the brothers.

At 1 A.M. Peter was spotted stumbling back into his home…as white as a ghost. He didn’t say a word but the locals could see he was clearly traumatized by something.


Peter’s Story

The next morning Peter felt up to being able to recount what had happened to him the night before. He approached a local gathering and told them his story…

He was apparently crossing the same abandoned lot when the ghostly female entity shot straight out of the ground. He was frozen with fear and claimed “She performed the serpentine dance while I remained rooted to the ground.”

Peter's Story

At the end of this dance she gave out a loud wail and suddenly he was able to move his legs again.

He ran home as fast as he could, nearly collapsing at his front door.


Police Intervention

More and more people started to take to the streets in search of this ghost Peter had encountered the night before. They were all armed – so the police decided to get involved as quickly as possible.

Within 24 hours a reporter from the New York Times turned up but he was told by a policeman named Holliday that the local whiskey was to blame.

Apparently the whiskey was so poor in the area it often caused the locals to see things that weren’t really there – in some cases robbing their own homes in a state of confusion!

The ghostly woman failed to appear that night and the large crowd had finally began to fizzle down after a few days of panic.

The reporter returned to his head office and wrote a short article on the incident – the wailing entity was never seen or heard again.
