Follow-up to the hugely successful Some Things Strange & Sinister.

For those interested in Ufology, cryptozoology, hominology, unusual natural history, ghosts and mysteries in general.

The secret history of gorillas in the UK -before they were officially  'discovered'. The history of  the Wild men of Europe, the UK and US: something that in the 1800s become very "pop culture"  Very pop culture and totally forgotten today!

Hominology. Sasquatch and Bigfoot -is there evidence for their existence?  No sitting on the fence here -the Patterson-Gimlin film is looked at as well as other evidence.  The Author's conclusions? You might be surprised.

Giant snakes. Amazons. The Giant serpent of Carthage. The Girt Dog of Ennerdale -another big cult 'creature' amongst paranormal and cryptozoological circles. The Beast of Gevaudan -what was it and were there really descendents of the creature in the 19th century -one of which was actually brought to London? 

 Believe it or not more than one incident of historical crocodiles cases in the UK.  In fact, far more than even the Author had thought .

And, after more than a century of claims by 'researchers' that it no longer exists: The Silent City of Alaska and the near legendary 'lost' photograph taken of it.

 This and much more. Updated with extra pages and photographs.

Those U.S.O., Sea Monsters, Giant Squid And Things That Go “Bloop”   11

                                         Things On Land

On The Scientific 'Need' To Kill A Sasquatch   111

Dmitri Bayanov and the anti “kill a Sasquatch” argument and John Green and John Steenburg on the need to kill a Sasquatch: is it necessary to kill an individual of what might be a rare relic population of hominids?

The Texas Bigfoot Research Conservancy Has Blood On Its Hands   117

The TBRC has now claimed to have shot and wounded Sasquatch creatures.  The Bigfoot community is up in arms that an organisation set up to research and conserve these creatures is apparently turning to the gun to “scientifically prove” the Sasquatch is real by producing a body. 

On Gathering Hard evidence  122

Rather than kill a Sasquatch or any other unknown creature is there an alternative to prove they exist? The simple answer is “yes”.

The Patterson-Gimlin Film  129

Filmed in 1967, the brief footage of “Patty” was shaky and split the scientific community in two regarding its authenticity.  With the film now digitally cleaned, image steadied and modern scientific techniques used to analyse it why is it getting harder to believe it is a hoax?

No, South America Does Not Have A Sasquatch  142

South America from Patagonia up to Mexico has its own set of mysterious hominid creatures from the Mapirangua to Ucu.  The comparisons between the Yeti, Sasquatch and these creatures are striking; from basic tools to habitat.

Tales From A German Wood  152

Raccoon-like dogs, a mystery primate and much more seem to have focussed on a little village in Germany.

The Strange Case Of The Gotherington Gargoyle  156

UFO reports and the sighting by an off duty fireman of what he could only describe as a “hideous gargoyle” creature.

The Strange Creature of Repton Wood  165

UFO sightings and a report of a strange, bi-pedal fox-like creature that vanished into the ground!

The Star Child Hoax  170

The ‘alien-human hybrid’ hoax exposed but what was the “Chicken Man” –a real alien hybrid?

The Strange Creature On The Beach 188

Just what did a couple on holiday photograph on a German beach –a strange creature from out of time and space?

Photographic Evidence That Dinosaurs Exist?  195

The Kasai Rex photographs said to have been taken in the 1930s in two different parts of Africa are said to show dinosaurs still existed.  And what of the hunt for the African Brontosaurus –and what happened to Stevens?

First Ever UFO Photograph Or Proof Of Early Airships?  206

It is claimed to be the first ever UFO photograph and was taken on a mountain top in the United States in 1870 –the best evidence of UFOs in the past or experimental airship flights?

Two Early French Entity Cases 212

Did Masse encounter a landed flying saucer in 1965 and see two entities? And why did he vow never to reveal what happened during the encounter –taking the secret to his grave?  And what of Dewilde in 1954 –was he paralysed by a UFO while the occupants went about their business? Did his dog die because of the encounter?

End Word  221

Sasquatch DNA evidence breakthrough?  Did Justin Smeja deliberately shoot two Sasquatch creatures and will the evidence prove it?  How you can help gather information on the strange and weird.

 The Bizarre Legends, Crimes And Truth About Spring Heeled Jack (2014)

The Truth About Spring-Heeled Jack  
Terry Hooper-Scharf

53 Pages 
 Dimensions (centimetres) 20.98 wide x 29.69 tall  (A4)
fully illustrated and referenced
Price: £7.00
The terror and mystery created by “Jack The Ripper” has been the subject of countless books, magazine articles as well as movies and TV documentaries. Ask anyone if they have ever heard of Jack The Ripper and it is doubtful anyone would respond with a “no idea.” 

By that same token, ask people who “Spring-heeled Jack” was and you would be lucky to find anyone who had ever heard of him. 

Spring-heeled Jack was the subject (loosely) of a film The Curse of the Wraydons (1946) and Dominic Keating also appeared as Spring Heeled Jack in the 2010 film Sherlock Holmes by The Asylum film company. The character has also featured in both American and British comic books and a number of books, for both children and adults. 

But the fact that the Springald held the country –not just London– in a grip of terror much longer that the Ripper did is all but forgotten except for some half-truths and fanciful theories. 

Now be prepared to read the full story of Spring Heeled Jack
And if you are interested in natural history -particularly Canids and mystery canids- then this book is for you!

The Red Paper: Canids Up-dated 2011 edition includes section on sarcoptic mange in foxes and treatment plus a list of wildlife sanctuaries and rescue centres in the UK. 

By the 1700s the British fox was on the verge of extinction and about to follow the bear and wolf having been hunted for sport for centuries. 

The answer was to import thousands of foxes per year for sport. From Norway, Finland and even as far afield as Russia foxes were imported. Even into the 20th century foxes were being imported into the UK for hunting -why if the "pest" had been nearly eliminated?- and capturing of Irish foxes and selling them to UK fox hunts even resulted in questions in Parliament!

But foxes kept dying out so jackals were tried. 

Some were caught, some escaped. Some became infamous -The Jackal of Sevenoaks, The Worcester Jackal -the magazines and newspapers of the day even reported on these hunts -accompanied by illustrations. 

Even wolves and coyote were released for hunting. In Devon the plan to release one wolf for a hunt had to be abandoned after an outcry from farmers and locals.  Far from today's myth, country people were far from "friends of the hunt".

Once and for good the Girt Dog of Ennerdale is explained -was it an escaped tiger? A thylacine or.....

The "Mystery Canids of Cavan", the Coyotes of Epping Forest and much, much more -with illustrations, maps and photographs.

The summation of over 30 years research reveals the damnable lie of "pest control" hunting but also reveals the cruelty the animals were subject to and how private menageries as well as travelling shows helped provide the British and Irish countryside with some incredible events.
