Gotta Watch: Mythical creatures

Is that really Bigfoot? Has someone finally tracked down the elusive chupacabra? Can you ever really, truly know if these creatures really exist? It’s the subject of our blog today. You’ve gotta watch these encounters with mysterious creatures.

Legend of the chupacabra – A Texas man spots what looks like a chupacabra. But is it? He doesn’t think so, but now it’s your turn to be the judge.

Bigfoot – What would you do if you saw Bigfoot on your lawn? One North Carolina man chased him away with a large stick and called 911.

Unidentifiable object – It looks like an alien, but no one was quite sure what it was. Maybe you can figure it out.

      Fake Gods.. Thanks for deleting CNN.. You prove your fear. You're subtle, subliminal, attacks under your breath are glaring. 🙂

    Nice collection of creatures here. You forgot to put the mythical creature 'god' in this list though.

    Oh wait, he doesn't have any evidence, no wonder. 🙂 He's talked about so much, it's hard to remember that he's completely fake sometimes.

      Does a lightning strike, an envelope opener, and the soothing of wounds count as proof? Just curious.. Ever since I've rejected the earthly false religions the weirdest things have been happening to me. I was printing out labels next to an unsavory character and the price was $6.66 over and over again. It freaked him out pretty bad. His name is J Cash (lol) Kinda similar to Jeezy Crisco eh? Keep the faith Derp.. You will get the "Proof" you desire. O:)

    the first one was a moose, the second one was a bear and the last one is a seal, I could tell by just looking at them and watching animal planet every once in a while, these scientists are either not real, crackpots or just plain dumb.

    i thought we were talkin about creatures, not God. everyone has the right to their own religious beliefs or the lack there of. I personally am REALLY TIRED of PEOPLE PREACHING ABOUT GOD WITH ALL THE BLAH BLAH CRAP THAT GOES WITH IT. Most of u (there's the small exception) are freakin' HYPOCRITES!!!! u preach and u preach and yet if u really are true to "God's Word" then why do continue to destroy HIS PLANET!!!!! dont give me any crap about well i do this and i do that, do u eat meat? then u DESTROY THE LIFE HE GAVE. do u drive a car? then u DESTROY THE ATMOSPHERE HE GAVE YOU TO BREATHE ect. do u cut down trees to build a house or other buildings (u may have not done it yourself but u bought it didnt u)? i can go on and on and on and on. the best way to show him your love would be to take care or what he gave u. other communities have made things work, very well mind you, by working with the planet not against it. Native Indians, Amish boy can i go on there too. i believe in Nature myself for without it there would be NOTHING! SO SHUT-UP AND STOP FREAKING PREACHING!!!!!! YOU HAVE NO RIGHT UNLESS U LIVE IN ONE OF THOSE COMMUNITIES AND BEING THAT YOUR TYPING ON YOUR COMPUTER MEANS YOUR NOT!!!!!!!!!

      LOL what? We destroy the life he gave by eating animals? Do sharks also do the same? How about Lions? How about Cows? Is grass not living? People are supposed to eat meat. Not only is this made clear in the bible, but it is also made clear by the evolution of humans and their history. Humans have always eaten meat. They were given the proper teeth to eat meat. Eating other animals is a form of population control. Eating the meat of other animals is justified. Further, God gave humans a brain that is incredibly powerful. Not to use it would be to ignore God's wishes. Thus, we've developed cars. And yes, they unfortunately do harm the environment. But we learned that they do, and we are actively developing technology that can sustain the environment. Thus, living in societies that do not use the brain power that God gave us, and instead draw arbitrary lines on technology (Amish), does no service to society. We should be working together to figure out solutions so we don't have to worry about our actions destroying the environment.

      What I find absolutely hysterical about your post is you are chastising everyone for their use of "planet destroying" energy. Yet you are using a computer, which runs off of electricity. Which is PROBABLY created by coal. Perhaps you should do some research on how this coal is obtained. Further, what is your computer sitting on? Is it a wooden desk? Is your home built out of any wood? Do you ever take a taxi? Train? your own car? Bus? You sound like a hypocritical ideologue who couldn't separate the truth from the fiction.

      lions,tigers,and bears (oh my) sharks , what to they have to do with anything that i said and btw I'm NOT THE ONE CALLING CATHOLICS OR ANYONE ELSE NAMES REALLY. i was making a point in which really had nothing to do with anything but human behaviors. sorry but the Egyptions figured out how to fly planes without this type of technology that we have now. why dont u reread what i said. unless u are preaching about how ur religion is better than others it really doesnt have anything to do with u period. it was really directed to the person asking where so and so is cuz "i'm not done with u yet" and whatever the comment was about catholics. seriously read it again.

    Are there any organizations that actually attempt to report only real news? What next? "Can tea leaves really predict the future?"

    I'm just going to toss this out there: marsupial wolf. Extinct circa 1930. Perhaps a collector let some loose in the southwest.

    Of course it's a cayotee with mange..
    The whole chupacabra story is absurd. The first time I heard of this, it was obvious.. But people love thinking there are mysterious 'things' out there..~!

      Mary, new species are being discovered every day both in the rain forests and via deep sea exploration. It is not a jump in thought to consider that these mythical animals have a foundation in isolated and brief human observations.

    I wonder why CNN allows for comments on their site. Most of the comments come from idiots with nothing nice to say about anything.
