There is no shortage when it comes to Bigfoot or associated creature sightings. It seems everyday there is a new report, so many in fact, that we here at GhostTheory have to keep it all in perspective when choosing which ones to throw at you.
Of course, I’m sure you’ve already guessed that I have a new one for today. Well, you’d be right, but there’s a method to my madness. Our Facebook curator Lindsay sent me this story last night and it immediately reminded me of another story from just last month.
First, lets cover the most recent report from The Telegraph:
Student spots mystery ‘primate’ stalking though park
Terri Leigh Cox, 17, says that she saw something hunched over and bounding around on all fours from her bedroom window in Dorchester, Dorset, and took a photograph of it on her mobile phone. The teenager said that the park’s visitor, which she insisted was not a dog or cat, then ran up a tree and out of sight.
Shaun Bessant, her boyfriend, went out to investigate but found no sign of the “monkey–like” creature.
The park is about 10 miles from the Monkey World attraction in Wool. Miss Cox, who is studying health and social care at college, said the creature “looked about the size of a small gorilla. It was walking like one as well, using its arms and feet”.
She added: “It was definitely a monkey because you could tell by its hunched back and the way it scampered across the field and up the tree. It was not a black dog. I have no idea what the monkey was doing there.
“It could have escaped if someone was keeping it as a pet.”
A spokesman for Monkey World said that all of its monkeys and apes were accounted for.
“The image is not clear and it is difficult to make out, so we would be unable to confirm its identity,” they said. “I can confirm that all of our rescued monkeys and apes are safe and well in the park.”
Although Miss Cox is claiming it’s a “Monkey”, she merely bases that assumption on the way it moved. Of course, I’m not saying she’s wrong, but without a positive ID, I have to allow for variations.
One important factor is that primates such as Chimpanzees and/or their cousins are not indigenous to the English countryside.
Suffice it to say, we have a big Scooby Doo mystery on our hands!
Now, I promised another similar photo was available from the not to distant past, but this one comes to us from the good Ol’ USA, PA to be exact.
It was first reported on Facebook at the end of February by a person named Polly:
A friend of mine lives in Pennsylvania and saw this as she called her dogs in.She was scared,because it didnt run off.She has 2 big black chows.We think she saw a baby sasquatch.And that is what she thinks also,because she has never seen anything like this.She knows what a bear looks like,and she said it looked like a little gorilla. – Polly
Now that you’ve seen both photos, it seems they bear a striking resemblance to each other. Could it be that both are the same species of Monk…Err, I mean creature?
One problem I have is that Polly’s photo looks like it was taken in 1941 and who knows where it originated? However, my focus is on showing the similarities between the two, so in this case, I don’t care if Polly’s photo came from an alien mothership. Well actually, I suspect such a factor would be important…..maybe.
I suppose we could go all the way back to the Jacobs creature and you’d probably see that it has some corresponding attributes to the above examples as well, but that’s a whole new kettle of fish as well as an argument waiting to happen. Not that arguing is bad, I’m just trying to keep this article under 2000 words because I’m late for a squash match. Summer squash to be exact.
So, now I ask the readers what they think as I value their opinion so, so much….as far as they know.
