A British Bigfoot Encounter?

Once again, Britain's Cannock Chase woods are a veritable hotbed of weirdness. Yep, after a bit of a lull, here's a newly reported sighting (although the event is said to have occurred last year) of an alleged Bigfoot-like creature in the area.

I've said it before and I will say it again: if these reports aren't hoaxes (and I'm convinced most of them aren't), then the Cannock Chase Bigfoot has to have paranormal origins.

Indeed, having grown up only a couple of miles from the woods, I know the exact area that the witness is talking about very well.

And, there is no way that a 7-to-8-foot tall man-beast can exist on the Cannock Chase (yes, it's of an impressive size and very dense in places, but it's not that big and it's surrounded by towns and villages), avoid detection and also leave behind no evidence of its "den" (or wherever it lives) or its eating habits - which would have to be huge, given the sheer size of the creatures reportedly seen in the woods of the Chase.

Literal ape-men? No. Some sort of phantom of the night? Yes.

Could be related to "faerie"-type creatures and phenomenon, Nick.

Could be there are certain areas of Cannock Chase Woods that are "gateways" to the "other world."

There's no doubt that the Chase has been a beacon for a whole range of weirdness for years - UFOs, Bigfoot, reports of huge snakes, "trolls," Men in Black and various other things. If such things as "window areas" exist, the Chase is a perfect example!

Why do they have to live full time in Cannock Chase? Could they be travelling through? In fact, why do they have to live in the British Isles at all? Couldn't such strong, water-loving creatures swim the Channel?

As for the other incidents, the whole range of weirdness, we already know that's happening. grammy

Next we'll have Ole Hairy dancing in a "faerie ring" along with the Good People. This year has been off the chart for weirdness---I tell ya. Almost beyond commentary. Go figure, Nick. :) :) :)

Actually a number of UK researchers have suggested the British creatures (if flesh and blood animals) are nomadic and travel from forest to forest under cover of darkness.

Yeah, 2008 has definitely been a year for crypto!
