The Ghost Moose of Maine

The Ghost Moose of Maine

In this article we will be covering the ghost moose of Maine – first reported back in the early 1900’s.

Is this giant white creature (nearly 10 feet in height) based on fact…or fiction?


Eyewitness Hunter Reports

This paranormal creature first came to light through hunter’s eyewitness accounts. They claimed it had a very strange glowing white hue to it’s coat and it’s antlers were completely over-sized (when compared to ‘normal’ moose breeds!).

Many of these reports also claim that the animal had a near supernatural sense of hearing and smell – whenever it was approached, no matter how quietly, it would suddenly disappear and materialize meters away.

A lot of these hunters actually set out to capture or kill this paranormal beast but were always thwarted when they took aim – the strange entity would simply disappear before they could pull the trigger!

One report that exists, involving hunters named Gilman Brown and Granville Gray, claims that both men managed to get the moose in their sights, from different vantage points…but the creature simply disappeared before they could shoot.


The First Sighting

The first sighting of the Ghost Moose of Maine was reported by a man named M.A. Cushing. He apparently came across this glowing animal in the Chairback Mountain area in the Katahdin region.

This first encounter seemed to be the catalyst for numerous other sightings, it was constantly spotted in the forests of the Chesuncook region up until about 1938.

The most famous of these ’38 sightings was from a witness listed simply as ‘Houston’. He claimed to be crossing a particularly tricky bog to get to a herd of moose.

Right next to this herd was a small gathering of larger bull moose…one of which glowed a pure brilliant white. He also claimed that this moose stood at least a meter taller than it’s surrounding counterparts.

Unfortunately, this Houston character was well known for liking a drink or two – so skeptics immediately jumped on the bandwagon and claimed he had mistaken a white horse for this moose.

Houston hit back at these claims pointing out that he was completely sober and he was an experienced hunter, besides, how could a white horse suddenly spout antlers?


The Ghost Moose

Was this spectral animal nothing more than an albino addition to the moose family or was it indeed a paranormal entity?

More recent reports have had this ‘white moose’ popping up in Canada – these incidents have led to a Canadian forest being nicknamed White Moose Forest.

Cryptozoology, paranormal entity or mistaken identity – what is the explanation behind this strange beast?

Kikiyaon - Terrifying Mythical Creatures

In this article we will be covering one of the most terrifying mythical creatures in African folklore – the Kikiyaon.

Is this cryptid animal based on a age-old bedtime story or is there some truth behind it’s existence?


The Kikiyaon

The Kikiyaon is a cryptozoology subject that has been reported numerous times in the Gambia, Africa.

Often referred to as ‘soul cannibal’ or ‘soul eater’, it is said to resemble a huge feathered owl with a 20 foot wingspan (approximately).

There are also other reports that label the creature as more of a humanoid gargoyle-looking entity that can transform into an owl-beast and take to the skies.

It is known to have deep red eyes with clawed feet – it also has long razor-like nails on each hand.

The Undead Power

The Kikiyaon is often referred to as the ‘soul cannibal’ or ‘soul eater’ because of it’s magical abilities to transform it’s victims into zombies.

Numerous African tribes are convinced that this creature can capture a man’s soul and leave him an empty vessel – the walking dead!

The creature has vampire-like qualities that deliver this soul eating blow – it’s said to creep into people’s bedrooms at night to sink it’s long teeth into their neck. When it has finished with it’s bite – it has captured the victim’s soul.

The Undead Power

The zombie state that the Kikiyaon unleashes does not last forever. Once it’s teeth has broken your skin, and your soul is captured, an illness takes over the body…that claims it within days.

I recently read an article that claimed this ‘Kikiyaon illness’ was the inspiration behind the zombie disease used in the classic Night of The Living Dead – Although I’ve not been able to confirm this.


Eyewitness Reports

Over the years, African locals have reported seeing this cryptid dash across the Gambian plains at ridiculous speeds. They also claim that a strange rotting smell follows the creature, wherever it goes!

A well known cryptozoologist named Bernard Heuvelmans decided that it was about time someone looked into this African ‘myth’ – he was famous for certain reports that covered the Loch Ness Monster and the Yeti.

After months of research in Africa, he came to the conclusion that this vampire-like creature was nothing but mistaken identity. He suspected that the locals had turned a ‘regular’ creature into something it was not – a legend brought to life by fear.

Local African tribes do not agree with his findings.

What are your thoughts on this creature – fact or fiction?

Do you believe this so-called myth actually exists or do feel it is nothing more than mistaken identity?
