    A man has bizarrely claimed he was stalked by a terrifying “dog man” monster in the Australian outback – and even says he has picture “proof”. The fisherman, called John, wildly claims he was left “petrified for a month” after encountering the supposed “half-dog, half-human creature” on two separate occasions. Speaking on the Believe: Paranormal & UFO Podcast, the Aussie insisted he was “followed” by what he has branded a “dog man” – and claims he “thought he was going to be killed”.

    Monsters and ghosts may be Halloween icons, but true spirit chasers know most of them are mere child’s play compared to those told in Latino folklore. That’s because tales of the supernatural have intrigued and enriched Hispanic culture throughout history — especially on holidays like Dia de los Muertos (the Day of the Dead), coming on the heels of Halloween on Nov. 1, and through the haunting legends that find their way into pop culture all year round. Thanks to depictions in films and shows ranging from Supernatural and Disney’s Coco to episodes of South Park and The X-Files, folks...

    A Netflix film crew sets up for a scene Monday along N.M.-16 for the movie Chupa. A publicist for the film said the road was not supposed to be closed, but signs indicated the road would be closed from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. Monday through Friday. Intermittent closures of N.M. 16 during the filming of Chupa — a Netflix film about a boy who discovers a mythical creature living on his grandfather’s ranch — riled nearby residents who said the production kept them from accessing Interstate 25. “We don’t want to mess with the film; we just want to...

    Imagine walking through the woods and seeing this. Howard Martin posted this photo on Facebook and now many are doing their best to identify this very strange animal. The photo was reportedly taken near St. Francisville, north of Baton Rogue, in Louisiana and it shows a four-legged animal, with no fur, hopping over a branch. Some on social media have suggested that this animal may be a coyote with mange, while others say that it may be another breed of animal that is sick. Now, because this is on the internet, like you, we too will approach this photo with...

    Chupacabra, like Bigfoot, is a fabled creature that Animal Planet describes as “a mix of vampire and marauding, furry lizard” first reported in Chile. Knowledge of the dog-like beast has spread in the United States via the nation’s growing South and Central American immigrant population. “No one has ever caught a Chupacabra, though plenty of eyewitnesses claim to have seen one,” Animal Planet says. Photos of the mysterious creature allegedly found in Ponca State Park began showing up June 4 on The Adventures Of Country Hunting & Fishing Facebook page. The post, which has gotten nearly 4,000 reactions, concluded by...

    A large wolf-like animal shot and killed in Montana has wildlife officials and social media wondering what it was. A rancher shot the gray-haired beast on May 16 when it ventured too close to his livestock in Denton. The rancher reported that he killed a wolf but wolf specialists looked at photos of the animal and doubted it was a purebred wolf, ABCFoxMontana reported. “The canine teeth were too shot, the front paws too small and claws on the front paw were too long,” Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks spokesman Bruce Auchly said in a news release Thursday. “Nevertheless, social...

    "This thing was standing out there, looking at me” said Shuker, a private contractor who lives at the base of Box Springs Mountain, which divides Moreno Valley and Riverside. “It was the ugliest looking thing.” Shuker said the hairless creature, glaring at him about 80 or 90 feet away, had a tail like a rat or a possum, with rippled pinkish skin, teeth jutting both up and down out of its jaws and was “at least two feet or more longer than the biggest coyote you’ve ever seen.” M.J.

    What is Johnny Depp really afraid of? Is he really under attack from El Chupacabra, a reptilian monster who sucks the blood from goats? That is what he told reporters in Tokyo recently. Why is Depp building a fortress from five Hollywood Hills mansions in a cul-de-sac in Hollywood Hills? Is Johnny Depp losing his grip on reality in the wake of his messy divorce from Amber Heard? Is he really spending money irresponsibly? Perhaps there is a more rational explanation. As negative reports roll in about Johnny Depp’s extravagant spending, odd purchases, and strange behavior, one has to wonder...
  • Chupacabra to Serve as 'Ambassador Animal' for Oregon Zoo

    Western Oregon is understandably eager for the public premiere of Nora the polar bear at the Oregon Zoo. But the hullabaloo made us wonder: What ever happened to Chupacabra? "Chupacabra is doing well," said Hova Najarian with the Oregon Zoo. "He's moved out of the vet center and is now at home in the off-exhibit Wildlife Live area. Eventually, he'll be one of our ambassador animals — visiting camps, classes and schools as part of the zoo's educational outreach. Although zoo visitors won't see him on a regular basis, we expect he'll be making plenty of public appearances in the...

    Researchers captured images of the short-eared dog in Puno's jungle regions. For the first time in Peru's history, researchers in the jungles of Puno captured images of an animal that they had long thought to be extinct: the short-eared dog. Also known as the small-eared fox, or Atelocynus microtis, the animal was photographed by camera traps in the Bahuaja Sonene National Park in the Puno jungle, Southern Peru, reports El Comercio. The animal's presence had not been detected in the Peruvian Amazon since 1987 and has been on the red list of threatened species of the International Union of Conservation...

    An investigative author from New Mexico with a history of scientifically debunking the chupacabra myth says he can explain sightings of the mythical creature. "When you do DNA testing on these alleged chupacabras, they're known animals," Benjamin Radford, who authored the 2011 book "Tracking the Chupacabra," told New Mexico television station KOB. "They are coyotes or dogs. In some cases, they're raccoons. The hairlessness can be explained by a disease called sarcoptic mange, which is caused by skin mites." Animals with advanced mange often die when exposed to cold, but because of warmer temperatures brought on by climate change, those...

KOB sat down with a New Mexico researcher who claims to know why chupacabra sighting are on the rise and why more bodies than ever are being found. Ben Radford is that man – a local investigator and writer, and the author of 'Tracking the Chupacabra.' He's fascinated with the people's fascination with chupacabras and has spent years wondering if they are real. "When people say skeptics are debunkers – that's mean, evil and gloomy. I would love to find chupacabra; I would love to find...

    'Mysterious Beasts' Spotted by Arizona Highway Cameras A suspicious pack of what appeared to be a group of large animals has sparked a viral debate about a possible sasquatch sighting in Arizona. The Arizona Department of Transportation was behind the latest announcement -- and conspiracy theories began to grow after they posted a photo from a highway patrol camera. It wasn't Big Foot enthusiasts reading too deeply into a suspicious photo; the government officials were the ones to suggest that something sinister -- and mysterious -- was going on. "We might have spotted a family of sasquatches on SR 260...

    JEFFERSON TOWNSHIP — A bear walking upright around a township development that has become an Internet sensation is injured and needs to be left alone, according to wildlife officials monitoring the situation. The black bear has an injury to both front legs, including its paws and possibly an elbow, said Tracy Leaver, the executive director of the Woodlands Wildlife Refuge. There's no official cause of how the bear got injured. Kelcey Burguess, a black bear biologist with the New Jersey Division of Fish and Wildlife, said he most likely "got hit by a car." Burguess said the bear is expected...

    Victoria Advocate ^ | Sam Cummings
    All of the local biologists are saying that what was found in Ratcliffe was a hairless raccoon; however, I believe the evidence points to a hairless white-nosed coati (Nasua narica) or a new, undiscovered subspecies. Even though we live in a developed country, there is a lot of land out there, especially in a state like Texas, for even megafauna to go relatively unnoticed; however, since we are in South Texas, which has one of the highest rates of biodiversity in the United States, finding weird and uncommon animals should not be a surprise. In an April 7 article, Jackie...
