Some unclear and controversial issues in cryptozoology

Some unclear and controversial issues in cryptozoology 92

Recently, the famous ufologist and paranormal researcher Nick Redfern (Nick Redfern) expressed his opinion on cryptozoology.

He says:

“Cryptozoology is actually considered a discipline that deals with the study and search of animals unfamiliar with science. However, I have to say that I prefer the name Monster Hunting, because to me, a word like cryptozoology seems too incomprehensible.

I am sure that most people, if you ask them what cryptozoology is, will have no idea. But if you tell them “monster hunting,” people understand what it’s all about. “

According to Lauren Coleman, director of the International Museum of Cryptozoology in Portland, “Cryptozoology” literally means the study of hidden and not yet discovered animal species.

It is estimated that 1.8 million species of living creatures on planet Earth are now known to humans, while their total number is estimated to be around 7 million (!).

Therefore, while cryptozoology is often ridiculed as pseudoscience, it is, in fact, a necessary and very important area.

However, if you look at those creatures that cryptologists often research, it turns out that they are not really animals. Or, at least, they are not animals to the extent that we refer to the term.

For example, Yeti, Bigfoot, Yowie and others. Most Yeti researchers will say that these creatures are unknown species of large primates or have survived to this day by disappearing humanoid monkeys. But things get complicated when there are stories of Yeti in which these creatures behave much differently than familiar animals.

There are many reports that the Yeti have been observed in close proximity to UFOs. There are also many stories in which people who were too close to the Yeti experienced strange feelings of disorientation and fear, and they seemed to be controlled by these Yeti.

There are even stories where the Yeti had other “superpowers”. For example, after meeting with them, some eyewitnesses experienced “wasted time syndrome”. That is, some events were not in their memory and they did not remember any of what happened to them.

Some Yeti researchers believe that they are able to isolate and control infrasound, and that it can affect humans. Low-frequency sounds are unfavorable to the human nervous system.

In a February 27, 2019 in article on the Exemplore site, researcher Dermal Rozan wrote that they could emit sound waves.

There are stories of eyewitnesses who saw the Yeti literally disappear in the bright light. Not all of these stories are so widespread. Against the backdrop of the total mass of messages, they are a minority, but they exist and cannot be thrown away simply because they do not fit into the general concept.

If the Yeti are mere primates not yet discovered by science, then they should not associate with strange flashes or UFOs, sound waves, etc. After all, not all known large humanoid monkeys, such as gorillas or chimpanzees, have been seen in these situations. If Yeti is just a monkey, then it will act like a monkey.

Another object of cryptozoology is Dogman. In the images, he is often portrayed as a werewolf and almost always described as a wolf walking vertically on both hind legs.

Eyewitness reports indicate that very often the Dogmen were seen near some ancient religious buildings, such as mounds, as well as near intersections, cemeteries or old bridges. All these places have traditionally been associated with supernatural and paranormal phenomena.

If Dogmen are any real animals, what is the reason for them to live only on ancient mounds and bridges?

Cryptologists are also interested in so-called lake monsters. The most famous of them is Nessie from the Scottish lake Loch Ness. Many Nessie seekers base their arguments on a scientific basis.

They think Nessie is a dinosaur that has survived to this day, or is another unknown animal. But if we look at Nessie’s extensive research history, it turns out that Nessie is often associated with supernatural phenomena.

For example, renowned researcher Ted Holiday regularly complained that, during his attempts to film Nessie with a camera or take a picture, his equipment had collapsed at the most crucial moments. If he had managed to take pictures, then they were damaged.

Other Nessie researchers, at the most important moments, regularly began to experience strange discomfort.

The famous occultist Alistair Crowley owned privately the Boleskin House (now burnt down) on the shores of Loch Ness. It is alleged that he performed various magical rituals there.

UFOs are often seen above the lake itself, and in the 1970s, Ted Holiday met up with Men in Black near Loch Ness.

Do you find that all these creatures are probably not animals that have not yet been discovered by scientists, but are something supernatural? Should they be excluded from cryptozoology?

Yes… if cryptozoology is thought to be concerned only with the search for unexplored true flesh and blood animals.

And with Dogman, Yeti, etc., researchers must deal with another field of action – the occult and the paranormal.

Four friends were scared by a Bigfoot-like creature

A strange creature resembling a Bigfoot scared the inhabitants of the Canadian province of British Columbia. This is reported by the Canadian newspaper The Star.

On the evening of December 25, 2020, four friends driving along the highway near the city of Silverton noticed a huge figure on the side of the road. According to them, she resembled a very large man or a grizzly bear standing on its hind legs. The creature quickly dropped to four legs and disappeared into the thickets. Friends stopped the car, photographed his footprints and sent the pictures to cryptozoologists looking for Bigfoot.

We found a wide variety of tracks, and some looked especially disturbing. These were the footprints of a two-legged creature leading into the forest in a straight line. I was a little scared when I saw their size. And they were definitely not bear paws, Erica Spink-D’Souza, an eyewitness said.

According to the head of Bigfoot Field Research Group and the host of the program “Finding Bigfoot” on Animal Planet, Matt Moneymaker, forgery or pranking is out of the question. 

“The untouched snow surrounding the footprints proves that the footprints are not fabricated by humans,” he explains. – The length of the stride exceeds the capabilities of a person trying to move through snowdrifts up to the knee. The traces of the dragging and the depth show that the jumping hare could not have left them. The linear nature of the tracks indicates that it was not a bear.”

Ten days after the observation, a group of cryptozoologists from Okanagan visited the scene. They examined the tracks and concluded that a moose could have left them. 

“Eyewitnesses could see a large elk looking ahead and mistake her for a humanoid figure,” says Moneymaker. 

At the same time, he notes that moose tracks are not enough for the final conclusion.

In 2018, it was reported that a resident of the American state of Montana went into the forest and almost died from a bullet from a Bigfoot hunter.

 “If I see something that looks like Bigfoot, then I just shoot him,” he explained.

Scientist finds polar bear DNA in Bigfoot

Scientist finds polar bear DNA in Bigfoot 99

British scientists examined yeti DNA and found a strong similarity to polar bear DNA. For analysis, they took the wool of a creature that was killed by a hunter in the Himalayas 30 years ago.

Brian Sykes, a geneticist at the University of Oxford, examined the DNA of the Bigfoot Yeti and found similarities to the DNA of a polar bear, according to Daily Star.

For analysis, Sykes took the wool of a creature killed by a hunter in the Himalayas 30 years ago, from which they made a stuffed animal. The result showed a match with the DNA of an ancient polar bear that became extinct at least 40,000 years ago. The geneticist suggests that the Yeti is a hybrid of a brown bear and a polar bear that arrived in the mountain range from the Arctic north many years ago. For this reason, it behaves differently from an animal of this species.

Now the professor wants to obtain samples of Bigfoot hair from all over the world in order to subject them to the most difficult DNA tests and continue research in this direction.

In 2019, the FBI released documents revealing the results of analysis of hair and biologic tissue allegedly belonging to Bigfoot. The samples were sent in 1976 by yeti hunter Peter Byrne. Research results showed that they belonged to a deer.

Bigfoot is a large humanoid creature from modern folklore, which is believed to live in forest or mountain areas that are inaccessible to humans. It is believed that it is an ancient hominid that has survived to our time, but scientists are skeptical about the likelihood of its existence. In particular, all cases of its observation or possible traces are explained by hoax or mistaken recognition of animal tracks.

When was the last time a Bigfoot was seen?

In 2020, the appearance of Bigfoot was noted in Australia, the relic forests of Canada, in the west of the USA, in the north of Scandinavia.

In the spurs of the Himalayas, wild hairy people of small stature were seen, resembling a Flores man (fossil dwarf species of people. Also known as the “hobbit” by analogy with the creatures invented by J. Tolkien. – Ed.).

In October, locals informed that in the jungle of Africa, in the Congo region, there is an upright creature similar to a Yeti.

Traces of Bigfoot, his refuge are regularly found in Komi. Yeti visits have recently been reported from eyewitnesses from the Karelian Isthmus and the border zone near Vyborg, where there are dungeons and a huge bunker near an abandoned military airfield.

Inverness, December 23. A new photograph of a mysterious creature “the size of a very large seal” in Loch Ness has been announced as another official sighting of the Loch Ness monster.

Tourist Karen Scott, returning from Aberdeen, noticed a strange creature in the Scottish Loch Ness. The woman managed to capture her observation in the photo. At first, Scott took what he saw for a big bird, she admitted to reporters. According to the traveler, while she took out the camera, the mysterious creature managed to submerge itself under the water.

“By the time I turned on the camera on my phone, it was slowly submerged under the water and then reappeared at a short distance,” she shared.

Scott and her friend compared the creature they saw to a large seal, but workers at the lake have denied this assumption. According to experts, seals rarely get that far into Loch Ness.

The tourist flow to these places in 2020 was much lower than in previous years due to the coronavirus pandemic, experts studying Nessie noted. Despite this circumstance, during this year, travelers recorded a large amount of evidence of the existence of the Loch Ness monster, scientists were surprised.
