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.

    Actually the last one about the creature found in Panama was already solved. It's a sloth. The symetry of the hairless to hairy faces match, the arms/legs and claws are the exact same as well. There are videos that actually show a panning of the whole animal instead of just the random "myspace" angle shots.

    Everybody needs to take deep breath and give this tale a rest.

    @Bob Zemko:

    The same reason they're the only ones involved in alien abductions, I suppose.

    There's more and better evidence being collected all the time on Bigfoot. It's probably only a matter of time before a body is found. Unless the government gets ahold of it first then forget it. These creatures definitely exist but I don't think we know anything about them. They may have some type of alien background. They obviously have mental powers that far exceed ours.

    The "chupacabra" is nothing more than a diseased coyote. People will believe anything. http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2010/10/101028-chupacabra-evolution-halloween-science-monsters-chupacabras-picture/

    There's an interesting couple of photos that a hunter captured with a remote camera in the allegheny national forest in PA a year or two ago. It shows what appears to be a hairy creature bending over to get some food that was left on the ground near the camera. Some have said that it appears to be a bear with mange but the hunter also captured a picture of a black bear in the same spot and the two look nothing alike. It's definitely an interesting photograph. Google it and check it out.

    Of course we don't have the whole planet figured out! But as we encroach on habitats & destroy forests we will come in contact with elusive creatures, more & more. If bears & wolves are showing up on peoples properties, why not Sasquatch?! If submersibles can go to new depths, why not heretofore seen sea creatures?! I for 1 love living on an evolving planet!!

    Why are sightings and stories of mythical creatures so plentiful? Because they're fun! With the world growing smaller and with fewer and fewer things left unexplored and undiscovered, something has to step up to maintain our sense of wonder. Otherwise, we'd be bored to death. That's not to say the claims are true, we just need something to pique our interest. Or scorn, in some cases.

    Is it just me, or does the picture underneath "Gotta Watch: Mythical Creatures" look like a drawing of god?

    Hilarious.

      Not accidental. It was done quite deliberately. If God doesn't exist then why even put forth so much effort? Wouldn't you be wasting your time to devote so much energy into disproving something that doesn't exist? It is a funny picture though.
