Mysterious Llama-Killing Creature May Be Murdering Donkeys in Kentucky

Despite the cuteness of Winnie-the-Pooh’s Eeyore and the all-talk-but-no-action Doneky in Shrek, anyone who’s ever been around real donkeys, whether domestic kind or the wild ass kind that gave destructive human behavior its appropriate name, knows it’s unsafe to mess with them. What is jokingly referred to as “stubbornness” in cartoons and fiction is actually the species’ strong sense of self-preservation resisting anything that looks like it could cause it harm. That resistance is showed in biting, kicking, fighting, struggling and anything else a donkey can do to get away. This is why the latest news of animal killings out of Kentucky is so distressing and puzzling. Just a few miles from where six llamas were found mysteriously killed last week, two donkeys were found dead under similar fiendish circumstances. Aliens unclear on the concept? Big cats? Wolves? Chupacabra? Something worse?

Does this mean I’m safe?

“Something grabbed them on the nose and then in the back. It took several animals to take them down. He wasn’t taken down by one animal. There was more than one.”

Nann Williamson, the distressed owner of the dead donkeys, described to local media what she found when she went to look for them on her property in Buechel, a former small town that is now a large neighborhood in Louisville. Unfortunately, this was on a Sunday morning and the animals hadn’t been seen since the previous Friday, when it appears they were attacked. The advanced state of decomposition allowed investigators to determine where they were bitten but not much else, including the cause of death.

These killings sound eerily similar to the nearby (5 miles away) attacks last week at the Louisville Llama Farm near the Louisville Zoo, where five llamas were found dead with bite marks behind their ears and by their flanks and a severely-wounded sixth had to be put down. There is still no official cause for those mysterious deaths. Nor have there been any official explanations for the deaths of three horses and some big dogs in September 2018 in Monroe County on the state’s southern border. In those, the horses had neck wounds that looked more like surgical cuts than bite marks and there were no signs of a struggle. In all of the cases, it appears the animals were killed but not eaten and there were few, if any signs of entry or tracks.

With nothing else to go on, the local authorities are pushing “canine attack” as the probable cause of the recent killings and are asking residents to report any coyote signs while bringing in any kinds of bait, including livestock, pets and children. Caroline Willette, an owner of the Louisville Llama Farm, thinks blaming canines is barking up the wrong tree. That’s not what killed her 500-pound livestock:

“I see coyotes around here all the time. Llamas are guard animals, (they’ll) mess you up.”

Did whatever killed the horses in late 2018 bite off more than it could chew in 2019 by attacking the much stronger and self-preservationist Kentucky llamas and donkeys? One interesting point … none of the places where the killings occurred appeared to have surveillance cameras. Did the killer know this? Will it go back to the more docile horses? Could this be the return of the infamous Kentucky Devil Monkeys? Or has a new cryptid moved in?

The watch in Kentucky continues.

Did he say Devil Monkeys?

Akron’s ‘Pond Monster’ Versus Ohio’s Many Water Cryptids

Have you ever wondered why Ohio doesn’t have an official state monster? Me neither, but one reason might be it has too many mythical creatures, swimming monsters and other strange cryptids to choose just one. If the Loveland Frogman, the Minerva Monster, the Grassman or any other Buckeye State beasts are planning to lobby the state legislature for the title, they might want to step up their efforts because there may be a new cryptid in the competition… the Akron Pond Monster.

“What is it?”

That’s the extent of the analysis by Jeremy Durant, an Ohio resident who this week recorded and uploaded not one but two short videos (see the first here and the second here) of something apparently swimming or floating in the Little Turtle Pond, which is not far from the famous Firestone Country Club and golf course (which has hosted the PGA championship three times) and the Cuyahoga Valley National Park where there have been a number of Bigfoot and/or Ohio Grassman encounters. Mysterious Universe was on top of the story and reported that Durant thought it might be an alligator – a species not native to Ohio, while wildlife officials from the Summit Metro Parks thought it might be a dying fish.

Could it be Bessie, Lake Erie’s monster namesake of its American Hockey League team, or one of her offspring? It’s about 40 miles from Lake Erie to Little Turtle Pond, but the alleged 40-foot monster, first reported in 1793 by a ship’s captain, was generally seen further west near the lake’s large islands. One theory is that Bessie was a large lake sturgeon, which the lake still has but in smaller numbers and length. While Little Turtle Pond does have fish (and turtles), it’s not suitable for sturgeons.

How about a Frog Man? The pond is over 200 miles from Loveland, a Cincinnati suburb where in 1955 a man reported seeing three four-foot-tall upright frogs apparently talking (croaking?) and waving a wand (hoping one would turn into a princess?). The Loveland Frog Men have been reported numerous times (most recently in 2016) but always in Loveland near the Little Miami River.

Maybe it was the Charles Mills Lake Monster? In the initial 1959 sighting, three boys allegedly witnessed a 7-foot-tall armless humanoid with scales, luminous green eyes and large webbed feet emerge from the lake (a manmade reservoir), which is about 60 miles from Little Turtle Pond. While it was never seen again, some think the 1963 report of an 11-foot-tall hairy beast with orange eyes spotted near the Charles Mills Reservoir was actually the Lake Monster.

Could it be a turtle monster?

Could that “thing” be the Crosswick Monster? In 1882, a boy in Crosswick, which is 20 miles north of Loveland, claimed he was carried off by a reptilian monster rumored to be living in or near a local creek. The boy was found in a massive tree, which 60 local men chopped down and found the monster, which ran off, but not before they got a good look at it.

“It is described as being 30 to 40 feet long, 12 to 14 feet tall when erect, 16 inches in diameter, and legs 4 feet long. It is covered with scales like a lizard’s, of black and white color with large yellow spots. Its head about 16 inches wide, with a long forked tongue, and the mouth inside deep red.”

The Crosswick Monster was never found nor seen again and some people think it was an escaped monitor lizard or an alligator that the excited and possibly inebriated men saw.

Which brings us back to the Little Turtle Pond monster. Was it an alligator as Jeremy Durant speculated? A dying fish? Or will it be entered into the annals of Ohio cryptids?

Did you watch the videos? Good luck with that!

Bigfoot caught on camera trap in northwestern Pennsylvania

An American hunter living in northwestern Pennsylvania shared a very unusual snapshot. According to the man, in recent weeks he began to notice that someone was chasing him in the forest.

A tall dark silhouette appeared on the hills, hiding behind trees and rocks. The man, surprised and even somewhat frightened by this, decided to find out whose attention he drew to himself, what animal was following him, and so he set up several trap cameras in the forest.

Cameras that react to movement take pictures when something flashes in front of them: an animal running past, a bird flying next to it, or even a leaf falling from a tree. The American received several dozen of such pictures. But then camera caught a mysterious stranger for whom it was actually placed.

The most amazing thing is that he clearly approached the camera and looked directly into its lens, apparently because of curiosity. A shaggy massive figure, similar to a monkey, was imprinted well enough on the photo so that it could not be confused, for example, with a falling leaf.

Of course, many, including the hunter himself, felt that the device had “caught” the legendary Bigfoot. Perhaps the alleged relic hominid noticed that the camera strikingly stands out against the background of everything around and began to look at the strange object with surprise.

The picture interested many cryptozoologists and researchers of the Yeti. Most of the experts who studied the photo concluded that it is genuine and shows bigfoot. Unfortunately, even in this case, the quality of the photo is not so good, but, apparently, it’s such a yeti creature: clever and elusive, but… certainly curious.

Chupacabra Claims Second Life In Honduras

Known as a cryptozoological creature, local residents living in Honduras are terrified of a chupacabra that has been on a killing spree recently. The said creature, is small in stature yet ferocious enough to take down bigger prey.

This canine type animal, resembles that of a hairless dog in most descriptions. Reports of chupacabra come from places such as Texas, Florida, Puerto Rico, Mexico, Chile, Nicaragua, Argentina, and the American Southwest. These Hispanic canine type vampires, have decimated livestock on farms and people’s other property.

Descriptions of these unusual bipedal beings, include them having a spiny back with protrusions coming from their head as well. A person has been claimed to have been killed by a chupacabra. The only information released is the name “Geovany”. His body was found with unusual markings made upon him. This young man is from Yamaranguila, Intibucá in Honduras.

From what is understood, this young man went to a dance party located in Yamaranguila, he then left around midnight heading back home to his village only he never arrived. Three days passed, before his body turned up on a mountainous area. A local resident explained this named José Martínez.

José also added, “The strange thing is, that it was in a hollow that no one could enter and we do not know how he could have got there. We thought that some wild animal took him. And the other thing is, he was as pale as the Chupacabras that took his blood.”

Now, people are fearful of going out especially alone in remote areas. Several weeks before all of this happened, a farm worker known as “Tulio” was found dead on a farm near the village of El Naranjo, Siguatepeque, Comayagua.

The body of Tulio had puncture marks on his feet. It was as if he was injected with something and all of his blood was drained away. One of the local villagers named Miguel Angel Martinez went out early in the morning to cut a few branches, to create shade from a tree. After this, he removed his shoes to get more comfortable.

There was a hole in the ground nearby and allegedly a strange looking animal came out of it. This animal attacked his feet draining away his blood. Martinez is now terrified to go out into the mountains.

Other attacks have been made or reported about in other communities areas around here. There have been several cows that have died in rather mysterious ways also. News of chupacabras attacking people and livestock is not new, but it seems there are more incidents being reported about recently. Perhaps this crypto type animal, is breeding more as news of them has traveled from around other parts of the world as well.

Obviously the local residents are scared and puzzled about these strange deaths. There have been veterinarians who have been brought in to examine the livestock cases. The chupacabra is a cold and calculated killer, leaving behind little to no evidence behind. They have even penetrated well-guarded areas. Massive amounts of blood are drained away, leaving either animals or people left to die. Some believe, that these creatures are that of a supernatural variety.
