Wendigo Sighting: The Indian Case and the attack in Canada

Wendigo is a very strange scary creature whose essence is very blurred. It is a large part of the folklore of the Algonquin Indians living in Canada.

Wendigo is most often represented as a forest monster — tall, insane, and violent. He especially loves human flesh. But there is another aspect, according to which the Wendigo is something like an evil spirit and he settles in a person if he out of need or out of curiosity tries human meat.

In addition, wendigo has another unusual ability, it can capture the minds of people and literally make them insane or sick, directing their actions as a brain parasite.

Wendigo attack

There is a version that the legends of the Wendigo arose from the observations of the Bigfoot, who were aggressive to people and attacked them or even ate. There is still a legend in the USA that when people disappear without a trace in the forests where bears are not found, then they are devoured by bigfoot.

One of the most famous stories about the Wendigo tells about an Indian named Swift Runner. In 1878 or 1879, this Indian lived with his family somewhere in a remote wasteland in Canada, and once he came to the city of Saint Albert and told a horrific story.

According to him, this winter was very harsh and once the food was completely over, and the temperature dropped to such that it was pointless to go out, you would freeze quickly. The runner had a wife and six children, and his mother and his brother also lived with them. Because of the cold, they began to starve. So days, weeks passed …

“Wait,” the townspeople told him, “You’re probably imagining, you don’t look exhausted at all, you are strong and, on the contrary, you look as if you were well fed.”

“Of course,” said the Fast Runner, “Because I ate my relatives all winter, chewing on their flesh and nibbling their bones.”

The townspeople were terrified and soon the police were sent to the Runner’s house. She found there the gnawed remains of all the members of the Runner family, which confirmed the correctness of his words. Later, the Runner said that everything began after his youngest son died of starvation. After that, he began to kill his relatives and eat their meat.

And soon there were rumors that the Runner was distraught and Wendigo obsessed. He was seen roaring, whining and howling like a wild beast. But for a long time he did not suffer like this, he was arrested and executed.

There are modern cases of Wendigo obsession. On July 30, 2008, Timothy Macklin got on a bus to travel to Winnipeg, Manitoba. Macklin returned home from Edmonton, where he participated in a carnival parade.

On the bus, Macklin snuggled into his chair and dozed off, and soon his neighbor, Vince Lee, fell on him with a knife at the sleeping one. Totally insane in appearance, Lee used Maclean to death with a knife and terrified everyone else on the bus and his driver.

The bus driver immediately stopped, opened the door and rushed out to bring help, and before that he closed the door outside so that the killer would not run away.

However, Lee was not going to run away, he neatly separated the head of Macklin with the same knife from the body, and then began to cut the body itself and delve into the insides. Passengers were sick and vomited from a bloody spectacle, but Lee was calm and cut the meat, chewed it, and put some pieces like an ear, put it in a bag and in a pocket. In reserve.

When the police arrived on the scene and took him into custody, the murderer had already managed to eat decent flesh of the victim. And no, this is not a legend and not a bike, but a completely real case, which the press later wrote about.

Vince Lee worked at McDonald’s and, according to his boss, was an ordinary guy, friendly, quiet and restrained by emotions. He has never had conflicts with other people.

According to the passengers, before the attack, Lee was sitting next to McLean, but he could not disturb him in any way; Maclean was dozing and listening to soft music with headphones. Lee sat and looked at everything, looked at him, and suddenly something in his head pereklinilo.

What have wendigo, you say? But with it.

When the investigation into this terrible incident began, it turned out that just a few days before that, Lee had bought several copies of the Edmonton Sun newspaper at once, where there was an interview with a man named Nathan Carlson, who is considered to be a great Wendigo expert. Because of this, it was rumored that after reading this great article, Lee became obsessed with Wendigo and went insane.

Carson himself was deeply shocked by this incident and then admitted that he could not sleep for several weeks after learning of this.

What aliens are doing at Loch Ness

What connects aliens to the Scottish lake monster? And why did many eyewitnesses say that a mysterious force prevented them from taking photos or videos of this monster? There are no answers to these questions yet.

Loch Ness, located in Scotland, is primarily famous for its mysterious monster, nicknamed Nessie, which according to various theories is either a huge eel, or a seal, or a prehistoric dinosaur. In turn, some associate the appearance of Nessie with the activities of aliens, and not from scratch.

It is true that strange lights or disc-shaped UFOs are regularly seen over Loch Ness, but there is also an eyewitness story about how aliens landed on the shore of the lake. This happened on August 14, 1971, when the eyewitness Jan Ove Sudberg (now deceased) was 23 years old. Early in the morning, between about 8:30 and 9:30 am, he was on the shores of Loch Ness in the Foyers Bay area.

Suddenly he stumbled upon something amazing and it was not a monster. Sudberg saw a clearing ahead, on which stood an unusual large object, shaped like a huge cigar. It was about 10 meters long, and at the top there was something like a cockpit. Near the object were “pilots” – humanoid creatures.

There were three of them and they were dressed in tight suits, similar to diving. When they entered the object and the object then rose high into the air, then Sudberg realized that he was observing aliens. As the ship gained altitude, it began to slowly fly over the hills towards the nearby Loch More Lake.

The story doesn’t end there. Sudberg was not a Scotsman, he came to Loch Ness as a tourist and flew back to his native Sweden shortly after seeing the aliens. And there a new stage in this strange story began. In Sudberg’s house, unusual phenomena began to occur, a poltergeist, he began to receive mysterious phone calls, and later even Men in Black came to him.

Soon Sudberg contacted the British researcher of anomalous phenomena, Ted Holiday, and told him his story. He also complained to him that he could not photograph UFOs and aliens in the photo, although he had a camera with him. He felt as if some force paralyzed his will and did not allow him to do it.

It is curious that Holiday later repeatedly encountered a similar phenomenon from Nessie’s eyewitnesses. All of them, when they saw the monster in the lake, for some unknown reason, either could not photograph it, or tried, but they did not succeed.

He also found out that much earlier eyewitnesses of Nessie faced this phenomenon. On November 12, 1933, eyewitness Hugh Gray captured a photograph of Nessie, which is considered the first 100% authentic photograph of the Loch Ness Monster.

Gray’s photo shows something serpentine floating in the water. However, few people know that when Gray saw this creature in the lake, he took as many as five pictures before it went under water.

However, only one out of five photographs showed the monster, the rest of the negatives for some reason turned out to be empty.

The conclusion seems to be obvious: the monster in Loch Ness is more than just a large eel, it has some powers to protect it, and in some way it is connected with UFOs and aliens.

A Briton captured on camera a creature similar to the Loch Ness monster

A resident of British Southampton Steve Challis, during a vacation in Scotland last year, photographed a creature in a lake that looks similar to the famous Loch Ness monster, reports the Daily Record.

Photos were taken during a trip to an excursion to Arkart Castle on the shores of the famous lake. A man photographed the opposite shore when he noticed a ripple in the water. He took some pictures, and then the creature itself appeared out of the water for a moment. 

After that, it disappeared and did not appear again. As a result, the camera recorded the animal in only one frame, which Challis discovered a few months later, when he looked at the quarantine pictures taken during the trip because of the coronavirus.

After the Briton shared a strange picture on the Internet, users suggested that it was the famous Loch Ness monster. However, the photographer does not share this opinion. He does not believe in the monster and believes that the creature he shot was simply a big fish or seal.

Interest in the photograph was expressed by blogger and expert on Nessie Roland Watson, but he suggests that the picture taken by Challis was edited in Photoshop. Challis claims that the photograph is genuine. He drew attention to the fact that the shot he made was completely different from those snapshots of monsters that the network abounds in. At the same time, he is still convinced that he shot just a big fish.

The story of the Nessie creature from the Scottish Loch Ness attracts many tourists who want to see it with their own eyes. According to eyewitnesses, the mythical monster from the urban legend has a long neck and a huge torso. Nessie’s existence is not proven.

A video of the second “confirmed” appearance of Nessie appeared on the internet

A Nessie fan recorded a second meeting with her this year. O’Faodhagen, a 55-year-old employee of the Irish hospital, claimed to have seen Loch Ness floating in Urquhart Bay.

He managed to film this meeting. He is delighted with the video. O’Faodhagen sent his results to the Official Loch Ness Monster Observation Register, and they confirmed the footage as an official second observation in 2020.

The video shows a dark figure rising from the water.

She splashes, creating waves and a white foamy substance. Then it goes under water and reappears. Despite the fact that he saw about 1.2 m of the creature emerging from the water, O’Faudhagein estimated that it probably had a length of at least 3 m. The frames that show this creature last 1 minute 38 seconds. O’Faudhagain said that Nessie had not appeared for the past three months. He decided that Nessie went to quarantine.

Her appearance surprised him. He believes that Nessie has stepped out of the depths to say hello. O’Faodhagen noticed that during her appearance on the lake there is no activity. On January 18 of this year, he observed her appearance from the water. Gary Campbell, keeper of the Official Loch Ness Monster Observation Register, confirmed this observation.
According to O’Faodhagen, it is very exciting to get a new observation, especially when it happened almost immediately after the first. And he seems to know what he is looking for.

Last year, he managed to capture 4 encounters. 2019 was a record year for people who saw the Loch Ness Monster. A total of 18 observations were confirmed. This is the biggest since 1983.

Some believe in the existence of Nessie, others are critical. Perhaps it is not worth denying that a strange creature unknown to science lives in the dark waters of the lake. If you have not seen any phenomenon, this does not mean at all that it is not.
