Is there room in the Para/Crypto/Fortean world for a gun-toting, paranoid, bipolar, opinionated bastard? A lonely romantic in search of his lost soul? A knight, Samurai, gunslinger, born in the wrong century? A self-destructive, doom-driven survivor seeking redemption? A heavy drinking gonzo outlaw cryptozoologist whose ego is exceeded only by his libido?
No, there isn't. That's why I'm here...

Strangest Bigfoot/UFO Encounter EVER...

I read about this case in Stan Gordon's latest book. I've read and heard of combination Bigfoot/UFO encounters before. Granted, I take some "atypical" BF/monster sightings with a grain of salt. This one, however, was investigated by a respected researcher and his team, and the witnesses included a state trooper. Some of the phenomena was recorded on two seperate tape recorders the investigators had with them.
Here's a great synopsis of the account posted on the UFO Mystic site.
Pennsylvania Bigfoot/UFO Encounter
That account reminded me of something I read years ago about Native Americans and creatures they called "Crazy Bears" which came to Earth in small "moons". I can't remember my original source, but here's an account I found online:


The many popular Native American legends of wise visitors from the sky could be the legacy of early California encounters. One of the first UFO-Bigfoot accounts occurred in 1888, and comes from the journal of a cattleman who had wintered with a tribe of Native Americans in northern California. During his stay, he saw a member of the tribe carrying a platter of raw meat into the forest. He followed the Indian to a nearby cave. Upon entering, he was amazed to see the Indian feeding the meat to a large, hairy man-like creature. The creature was totally covered with thick hair, except for its palms. Also, the creature had no neck, but ws much larger than a man. The Indian tribe called him "Crazy Bear" and explained that he had come to the earth in a "small moon" which carried two other similar creatures. Inside the "small moon" were several other entities who were human-looking, only very short and they wore shiny, silver clothes. After disgorging the three creatures, the object took off into space. The Indians told the cattleman that similar incidents had happened throughout the years, but only rarely.

That's what's so frustrating about trying to figure this stuff out. IS Bigfoot nothing more than an ape species that has eluded detection? Or is there more to the story? This is why I'm convinced that there's an "Intelligence" behind these phenomena. I have no idea what its purpose or motivation might be, but it seems to persist in throwing a monkey wrench into our thoughts and theories. It teases us, it "feeds" us just enough to keep us guessing. Maybe someday we'll be able to understand the game, and then, maybe, we can get the jump on it.

This is intriguing. I can think of a lot of scenarios for this. When I went on the hike into South Mountain and looked at the HoHoKam glyphs, Jeff Woolwine said that the glyphs showed that these gods came down in silver ships and from them beings emerged that could shapeshift into man-like things. When I see repeated patterns, I begin to wonder, especially Native Americans who obviously drew many characters with gorilla faces, something we did not have in America. So, why would UFOs bring us such archaic beasts? One of the things I think of off hand is that they are bringing back some of our occupants who were here that they usurped to make modern man by gene manipulation. They are returning some of our natural beasts now that there is no chance of inter-mating. Another possibility is that they allow certain caged creatures to have some time on a planet to frolic like you take a dog out for a walk on a long car drive. You have smoke coming out of my ears trying to take this theory seriously and come up with a feasible explanation if BF came off a silver sky pod...

You should read the entire story in the book. Super weird!
And yeah, that's the big question: If UFOs are dropping them off, what's the reason? (I do like the "walking the dog" idea, never thought of that!).
But it does seem that BFs are only here for a time, then they just disappear. That would explain the lack of a body or why no bones have ever been discovered, and why investigations in prime BF areas yield so little forensic evidence.
Of course, if we knew for sure just what the UFOs are it might help us to understand any connection.
Some have theorized that BF is some kind of experimental or test creature released by the UFOs. I wonder though, if maybe WE are the subjects of the experiment, whatever that may be...

It'd be a lame experiment. You don't make something so hard to find that you can measure our reactions because we'd have to see them more regularly if they want to see how we deal. I try to think like an alien. Suppose we went on a road trip with our dogs. We'd stop to walk them, especially if the "pets" had an alimentary system and need to feed. It's a lot like ghost hunting. I know it seems random, but if we find out what conditions are present when it occurs, we can predict when and where. So, we must ask ourselves, when these sightings occur, where and when are the UFOs and the BFs being seen--time wise and location wise how far apart? Then, look at conditions from tectonic activity to geomagnetic to any other conditions or geology that might contribute. We have to find their window. They don't do it with no rhyme or reason. If we approached a habited planet in highly habited areas, we would seriously be plotting it out. We can assume the BFs are not here to observe us or they are doing a piss poor job as they are not interacting at all. Then, again, there's always the possibility that BF is a true biological creature and of the earth and there's a small enough population and they're nearly as smart as us, so they know how to hide. The UFO/BF coincidence could be that. If we plotted out BF sightings we also might find they're within 500 miles of a Starbucks but that doesn't mean there's a correlation. Oh, hell, BG, I could talk about this all night. I love this subject and hope to cover BF soon. I have a angles I'd like to try.

I had another thought, what if they serve as a warning system or like "guard dogs"? If, in these instances of BF/UFO overlap, the UFOs are up to something in the area, and the BFs are deployed to keep the humans away, or to alert the UFOnauts to their presence? Like if the BFs are there to keep the populace indoors and out of the woods?

I don't know. I'm still of a biological of the earth life form explanation for BF, but if I were to take on the UFO conspiracy, it seems rather wild, but you look at highly intelligent human beings carrying around toy poodles into the store and dressing them in clothing and you wonder why such an advanced being would do such a thing, so perhaps BF being a big clunky biological type of creature makes him an attractive pet. Perhaps he is Gianto-blacki and they took some from earth long ago and they come back now and then to let them roam their old planet. They would make lousy early warning systems as they would be seen a lot more as they lurk around us spying and how would they communicate? I think it's incidental that UFOs and BF are seen in similar places-both have a reason to be there--UFOs choose spots less populated as would the big man.
