Polish Bigfoot

This morning when I finally got around to checking my e-mail, I found that I had several Google alerts for Bigfoot. Usually, I take a quick look at what "news" that they have and simply delete. This morning though, something caught my eye. Apparently, there is a Polish version of Bigfoot. The article that read described a large-hairy hominid walking along the rocks. The news-site has some still images that were taken from a video.

After viewing the video, I personally have a few issues with it. First, once it appeared, why take the camera off of it? Secondly, the movement of the "creature" looks incredibly like a human trying to keep their balance while walking among rocks. I would think that a creature that was used to this terrain would be better able to move around without having to balance itself that much. Maybe it is real, but my money would be that it was someone in a suit...

Also...even though this does not relate in any way to the state of Kentucky or witht he Polish BF, but, over the weekend discovered yet another water monster located in the US; the Altamaha River Monster. I haven't delved very deep for additional information on this at this time, but here is a blog that I found with some information and should serve as a starting point.

Unidentified Flying Humanoids

***This posting does not represent the views of Kentucky Paranormal Research Project as a group. This is an indivudualistic belief and post***

Ok...I guess that it is time that I put my hat into the ring on this phenomena.

What apparently started out as reports of "witches" in Mexico, has moved to the US (including the report of a flying BF) and has even reached Myanmar in this report.

I've watched the video and to me, it looks eerily similar to one of the videos coming out of Mexico. However, I am willing to keep somewhat of an open mind.

What I am interested in know is...of all these reports, especially the video "evidence", has anyone paid any attention to see if it appears as if the figure actually moves? I don't mean through the air, but if the body actually moves. If so, does it move as if it were human?

Now a lot of people say that I take a lot of things on face value...BF, ghosts, UFO's, etc; why can't I take this one? me the evidence isn't worthy for me to take seriously. I may be totally wrong and this be the only thing that is real. But, these videos sure isn't Patty...Patty you can at least see enough to debate if it is real, or a person in a suit...With these videos, you can't tell if it is a bunch of balloons, a single shaped balloon, some sort of radio controlled device, or a vast assortment of other objects...

All-in-all, I don't guess that I will take them too seriously until I either see one, I can see clearer/closer video imagery, or someone either points out or a new video comes along where you can see the actually "body" move...

I am very interested in seeing what everyone else thinks about this. Feel free to comment on the blog, or contact us using the links in the column to your right...

Possible Theory...

***This does not reflect the opinion of the KYPRP, nor does it represent the opinion of the is meant only as a "THEORY"***

Over the past several days, I have been reading other blogs and websites and have been introduced to the phenomenon of "vanishing line". I've seen some suggest that this could be because BF is more of an alien species, or, that BF is an interdimensional being...Today though, I read an article over on Frame 352 dealing talking about possible time warps. Using that as a starting point, along with the common idea that BF is really a surviving member of gigantopithicus, would it be too incredible to say that what people are experiencing is some sort of tear in the time continuum curtain and people are seeing something from the past?

If you think about it for a few moments, it makes some sense...vanishing lines, no bodies, UFO reports...If you read up on some reported time warp stories, a lot of these include flashing light(s). Maybe that is the rip opening wide enough for something to pass through for a few minutes...Not saying BF is a time traveler per-se, but maybe just a glimpse into the past that has a chance to interact with the here and now. Who really knows the answer to this? Not I. I am simply the one who sits around and thinks about off-the-wall theories to attempt to explain the unexplained...

Comments fixed maybe...

I have wondered if maybe something was wrong with the comments section as there has not been a single comment left beside the one that I left, found that it would not allow anonymous posts...well, I've turned that off and you can post anonymously now if you like...Looking forward to hearing from you!

What got you interested?

A lot of people ask this question of investigators. Well, my answer is a very drawn out one, but, since this is a forum of such, I’ll drag it out for you.

Several, several years ago, I had a childhood friend who was a fan of sci-fi. At the time, I didn’t fully understand the term(s), but thought there was nothing cooler than the adventures of Captain James T. Kirk and the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise. My friend shared the same feelings. We would spend our days at school playing Star Trek on the playground and planning our futures with plans of obtaining a yacht and sailing to Scotland to look for the Loch Ness Monster. No thoughts of ghosts or BF at that time…only Nessie and UFO’s (Hey, you can’t have Star Trek without a UFO can you?). This is what embedded the thoughts of the paranormal into my adolescent head. No actual sightings or anything, just a love for sci-fi.

Fast forward about 4 years. I went to Ohio to spend the summer with my grandmother and aunt in between 8th grade and my first year in high school. Granted, I was feeling some apprehension about it. My grandmother is/was one of those people who never liked to be cold in the least and therefore hardly ever ran her air conditioner unless there was a dire need. As a result of this and the fact that it was an extremely severe weather summer (severe thunderstorms nearly every day with several possible tornados that touched down relatively close), hardly ever did I sleep upstairs in the spare bedroom, but rather downstairs in the living room close to the basement door (in case of emergency). One night near the end of my stay, the weather was relatively cool for late July and the no T-storms in the area, so I slept upstairs. That night, I had the most vivid dream (maybe a dream, maybe not…still not sure) of my late grandfather that I had ever had up to that point. Either I woke up to him standing beside my bed, or I dreamt that I was asleep and woke up with him standing beside my bed, giving me words of encouragement and telling me not to worry that everything would be ok. The strange thing is that I never got to meet my grandfather. He passed away 4 years and 1 day exactly from when I was borned. The next morning, without even mentioning anything about my experience, my grandmother surprised me by telling me that she just had this feeling that my grandfather had been there with her that night. Again, this planted another seed.

Fast forward again another 8 years now. One night after a fraternity formal, a frat brother and I decided to go do a little fishing at the Cave Run Lake (Rowan County/Bath County Kentucky) spillway. It was a warm evening, with virtually no clouds in the sky. After fishing for a couple of hours, I looked towards the spillway and saw that there was a light focused on it. Thinking we were alone here, I began looking around for the source of the light, but found none. When I looked back at the light it was beginning to spread out, mcuh like a mag light, but not losing any intensity. After roughly 30 seconds, the light encompassed the whole of the spillway, the light was so bright that even from 200 feet away, we were literally able to see the water coming out. This lasted for what seemed like an eternity, but in actuality probably 60 seconds from the beginning to the end. A few minutes after the light on the spillway, I noticed someone carrying a lantern on the hill above us. We watched them walk toward the sidewalk leading to the path over the spillway. When it reached the little maintenance shack (at the time that is what we thought it was, but learned soon afterward that there is not shack there, no doors or anything, just the path going over the spillway) at the spillway, it disappeared. We thought that this person was probably the source of the light that we had seen and was probably just doing some checking of gauges or something. But, things didn't add up -- especially since we could not see where the source of the light came from. Mustering all the courage that I could, I decided to walk up the hill to confront whomever when I saw him leave the shack. I timed it so that he should pass right in front of me when I topped the hill, but when I got to the top, there was no one... and I mean no one there. No one up or down the sidewalk from me, no additional cars in the parking lot, nor anywhere around. This is the straw that broke the proverbial camel’s back that led me to pursue my interest in the paranormal.

Some of you may say though that this was only an encounter with a possible ghost. But it is much more. I’ve always believed in the possibility of extra terrestrials and sasquatch and such, but had never seen one or had any encounter of any kind. And then to have this experience just solidified my beliefs that there are things out there that “science” has yet to explain.

That is my story…care to share yours? Click the links on the right column of the page to share your encounter, to request an investigation, or if you have any questions.

Sasquatch Humor...Part II

I've gotten this from a very, very, very, very reliable source...

The Weekly World News (didn't say reliable about what...they are always reliable to produce some humorous articles!) is reporting that a BF burial ground has been found that is full of BF skeletons...

Just thought everyone might like to have a little laugh on a Friday afternoon!

KYPRP Clarification

Let me say one thing up-front. Not everything that you may read on this blog will reflect the views and/or beliefs of the Kentucky Paranormal Research Project. I am only one member. If I post something that is a personal thought and/or belief, I will be putting a disclaimer on it to reflect that point.

Also, some may wonder how we are going to do so much in the lines of investigating the paranormal; well, let me explain:

Each member of the project will have a primary and a secondary specialty. For example, I am a founder in the first, but, my primary field of study will be BF/Cryptozoology. My secondary field could be any one of the other paranormal aspects, as I currently have not picked up my secondary. The reasoning behind this whole "primary" and "secondary" is in case our primary is unable to attend, we will still have someone there serving as our expert. In turn, this will allow us to add an additional level of validity on our cases and evidence presentation.

Another thing that you may have noticed is that the blog is doing a lot of BF/Sasquatch time goes on, our hopes are that in addition to our website (which still we haven't gotten up and going yet...but, I have a very, very good excuse), we will each be responsible for keeping a blog on each of our specialties. Long story short, I'm getting a leg up!

How would a Paranormal encounter effect your life?

Here is a question that I am going to pose to the crowd...How would a paranormal encounter affect your life? Whether this would be seeing a cryptic animal (especially something like BF or Nessie...something that is supposed to be a mythical), a UFO, or having some type of ghostly encounter?

Personally, I have had several ghostly encounters and they did change my life to some degree (got me interested in ghost hunting!), but the thoughts of seeing something that is supposed to be purely mythical really would make one think, me included. I believe that there are things out there, but after having grown up in a society that has told me that these things do not exist and then to actually see one, at that point, I couldn't help but start questioning everything that I had ever been told...

I would highly recommend that you read this encounter that is posted over on the Blogsquatcher's blog. It is a very detailed description of an encounter that could leave you feeling as if "YOU" just had the encounter; I know that I sure felt that way!

Feel free to comment as this is a question that a lot of people do not think about prior to going into investigations...

Bigfoot/Sasquatch Reports from the late 1970's

I pose a question to those who have checked out the site and/or may be returning to the site...Does anyone remember the sightings of a white BF-like creature in Fleming and Mason counties in the winter of '79? Also, in Salt Lick, KY there was a report from that same time frame (I believe) regarding something seen on Caney...Anyone have any information that they may remember regarding these sightings?

I know the white BF-like creature sightings from Fleming and Mason counties were newsworthy stories for their time and there is quite a bit of information from news sources out there...I'm looking for other people who may have seen something or know of someone who may have seen something.

Of particular interest would be if someone had spotted a white BF-like creature in Rowan, Bath, Morgan, or any other county in the "general" vicinity of the reported sightings. Please, if you have any information, click here to send us an email regarding this issue and we will return your contact ASAP...

****Check back later today, as there should be either another posting and/or updates to this post****

Looking for Investigations!

All right everyone. I've seen some traffic increase over the past couple of days and I like that. It shows that someone is seeing us out there. Our next step is to encourage those that view this page to share their Kentucky paranormal experiences with us.

As stated in other places on this page, everything that you share with us will be confidential. The only thing that we will do, will be to put your experience up onto our website once we get it up and going, but, we will never post anyone's real name. (Trust me, as a person who grew up and still resides in the eastern part of the state, I know that coming forward with any experiences that you have is harder to do because of all the criticism that you will face from other people in your community. That is why I stress that we will be 100% confidential with you identity.)

To submit/share an experience, or to simply ask us a question, just click on the links on the left-hand side of the page. If your paranormal experience does not match up with the links we have there, feel free to use the general email link to contact us.

Want KYPRP to do an investigation for you? Again, use the links to contact us. This email is checked continuously throughout the day and we will attempt to contact you as soon as it is possible for us to do so.

UFO Reports in Britain Due to Media exposure?

In this report, they are crediting such entities as "X-Files" and "Independence Day" for a flap of sightings in Britain back in 1996...Granted I am no expert at this, but, wouldn't it make sense that once something was brought to your attention, you would pay more attention to it? Look at it this way...when was the last time you paid attention to how many white Dodge Stratus' you see on the road? Now, go out and buy and drive a white Dodge Stratus, and notice how many more of them that you see...

That appears to be it for now, but as stated in a prior post, check back often as this could be updated as the day goes by...

Sasquatch Humor

Just found this link out there...pretty funny stuff...check it out...

Isn't it good that we can laugh at things like this...

Easily Faked

I don't know how many of you may have seen this viral video...

but it just goes to show how easy it is for people to "make" a video and get a lot of people to believe everything about it.

A lot of paranormal researcher out there should take this heart and realize that before putting any picture/video out there for the world to review, make sure that you are 100% able to recognize what it is and that you are able to verify the authenticity of it prior to signing off on it. Even though you may not have taken the pic/video, by acknowledging that it is valid you are putting your reputation on the line.

I have seen a lot of pictures/videos of paranormal issues, i.e. Bigfoot, UFO's, ghosts, etc...that are really nothing more than tree stumps, tree limbs, lights in the distance, and simply matrixing that investigators will swear is something paranormal.

Long story short...look and think really hard about how a pic/video could be faked, what the circumstances are behind the pic/video, what is the story behind it, etc. before you stake your reputation on some smoke and mirrors.

UPDATE: Check back periodically through the day as posts are likely to change several times per day or, even a new posting be put up, depending on events of the day...Something that I want to do going forward, is to supply on here news that relates in some way/shape/form to the various fields that the KYPRP deals with...with that having been said:

Ancient whale remains found near Santa Cruz --While this doesn't completely fit into our field of study, this is something that relates overall into the cryptozoological field in that what we learn about our past, helps us know what we could be dealing with out there in the field today.

Wolf release in Mexico sparks concern in US --In the near future, we could be seeing this show up as a new cryptid animal here in the US, especially if governments want to deny that they have crossed over into the US.

Mermaid Sightings Claimed in Israel -- It has been a while since I've seen any news regarding mermaid sightings, but, technically it is a crypto creature.

Greetings and Salutations!

Kentucky Paranormal Research Project is finally on the web.

Over the coming weeks, those that are interested in following us will have an option of viewing our blog, or, coming to our website. The second is currently in the process of getting everything together from various storage places that we have.

Let me start by including a little about us:

While officially founded in 2009, The Kentucky Paranormal Research Project has been around much longer in spirit. After undergoing several name changes and long months in limbo, the decision was made to move forward with the Project after a discussion with a mutual friend and member of a seperate research group.

While there may be several organizations in our geographical area, none are dedicated to providing investigations into all paranormal matters. Whether you believe that you have seen a crptid animal, UFO, a bigfoot-like creature, or a ghost; we encourage you to report to us your experiences and are ready to consult with you and do an investigation at your request. We base our whole organization on the defination of paranormal as being "beyond the range of normal experience or scientific explanation."

Since each member of the Project comes from varying "life" backgrounds, that enables us to take any situation and look at if from a multitude of angles to arrive at a plan of action for the investigation. In addition, many members of the team have had paranormal expereinces which give us the ability relate to the feelings that the client may be having.
KYPRP is a non for profit organization dedicated to providing quality research using current tools that are used in the field by professional groups. We will never charge for any investigations and/or services rendered
