Wendigo Sighting: The Indian Case and the attack in Canada

Wendigo Sighting: The Indian Case and the attack in Canada 86

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.

Scientist finds polar bear DNA in Bigfoot

Scientist finds polar bear DNA in Bigfoot 93

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.

In Africa, some tribes still believe in the existence of a dinosaur on the Congo River

In Africa, some tribes still believe in the existence of a dinosaur on the Congo River 96

There are already a great many cryptids in our world. But at the same time, we do not have any evidence of their real existence, except for legends and eyewitness accounts. Of course the ocean is still a very unexplored sphere of the Earth. There may indeed be some prehistoric cryptids preserved there. For example, there is one horseshoe crab, which is almost 500 million years old. 

But in Africa there has long been a belief about a certain Mokele-Mbemba, who lives in the Congo basin. This legend confuses scientists. If the most ancient creatures can still be preserved in the ocean, then they could hardly remain on Earth, especially when it comes to dinosaurs.

Judging by African beliefs, dinosaurs on Earth are not yet extinct?

However, judging by the descriptions of local residents, either some sauropod from the Jurassic period or a real plesiosaur lives in the Congo. It is not known exactly who it is about. The appearance of this creature, described by eyewitnesses from Africa, often resembles the Loch Ness monster. 

Mokele-mbemba is credited with a long neck, a raptor’s head and aggressive predatory behavior. According to some tribes, a mysterious dinosaur can hunt hippos that are afraid of him and go away. According to other sources, he is a herbivore. No matter how many expeditions were organized to the Congo to search for this creature, not one of them was crowned with success. None of the naturalists have come across a mokele mbembe. This sometimes gives the impression that this creature is just a product of the mythology of local residents.

In 2001, the BBC and Discovery Channel filmed an entire movie dedicated to the search for the mysterious Mokele Mbembe. From conversations with representatives of tribes, experts found out that the mysterious creature could be …. A common rhino. 

The fact is that there are practically no rhinos in the Congo basin. Local peoples are usually not fond of distant travel. But rhinos could well have lived in these lands centuries ago. From all this, naturalists concluded that by mokele-mbembe they mean any of the African rhinos. 

Moreover, when one of the experts showed the local a photograph of a rhinoceros, they replied that it was the same mythical monster. Therefore, scientists thought that the legend was created by those who personally saw these giant pig-like animals in distant times. In addition, the mysterious traces of mokele-mbembe,

Judging by African beliefs, dinosaurs on Earth are not yet extinct?

True, it is worth considering the opinion of cryptozoologists who are looking for outlandish creatures on Earth. Over a century of this entire cryptozoological campaign, researchers talked to many locals in the Congo and received very mixed information. 

Some Africans said that the mokele-mbembe has a very long neck, more characteristic of a dinosaur, as well as the existing scales. Moreover, there was information about the carnivorousness of this beast. In this case, this animal can no longer be equated with a rhinoceros. Almost nowhere was it reported that the beast had a giant horn.

 A biologist named Roy McCull undertook two expeditions to find the mokele-mbembe and failed. But he is still sure that the mysterious creature is not a rhino at all, but a real sauropod that has survived to this day. 

McCull strongly disagrees that the mokele-mbembe could be a mammal or an amphibian. But the official science does not recognize the existence of surviving dinosaurs at all, and calls the legend of the African “dinosaur” an ordinary fantasy
