In view of all the bigfoot news I thought I would post this sighting from
ParaResearchers Ontario has listed a strange account of a cryptid sighting near the Trailwood Conservation Area located close to area residents in Markham, Ontario about 35 miles east of Hamilton. Cryptids, which include such mystifying creatures as Bigfoot and the Loch Ness Monster, form part of the paranormal because their actual existence is still in question.A witness to this event writes that in December 2001, she and her husband were driving from Markham Road and Main Street south of Highway 7 when they came to a dead end road. “We sat there with our car running and headlights on and saw something stand and move south across our lines of vision, about 20 meters or so ahead of us. The area is wooded and was covered in snow at the time. We were both stricken with absolute fear unlike any either of us had felt before.”The couple was frightened by what they saw. They noted that it was not a bear because it was “MUCH thinner and the proportion of limbs to trunk was more human than bear.” They agreed it could not be an ape either because the body was narrower “across the shoulders and torso.” “It was solid as opposed to an apparition, and walked entirely upright with casual stride. If it was human, it would be unusually large -at least 6.5 feet but probably closer to 7 or even more. It had a distinct neck area and was able to rotate its head toward us clearly.”They also agreed that what they saw was not someone in a costume. As well, they heard “a percussive deep growl. It felt like a sonic boom but didn’t really seem very loud.”Curious as to what they’d really seen, the couple returned to the area several times but did not see the creature again until February 11 2005. This time, they were out driving in the early evening along

(I have to say, it looks like a fish to me. Normal service will resume tomorrow I hope, combination of bad asthma attacks and family issues have meant I have only posted news items for a few days. Will get back to blog writing tomorrow. Thanks for your patience)
