//Legendary Creatures Part 1: Bigfoot
What could possibly be a Tasmanian tiger filmed in the late 90s.
Bah I can’t find this video anymore either, but this person filmed a creature that looked strikingly similar to a tasmanian tiger!
I can’t see the stripes that well if there aren’t any, but it could very well be a coyote with mange or something similar.
The other day I saw some people talking about local folklore and legends and I decided to share one of my favourites from Scotland. It’s the legend of Am Fear Liath Mòr (Big Grey Man), a strange presence or creature that’s said to haunt the summit of Ben MacDhui, the second highest peak in Scotland.
While Am Fear Liath Mòr can appear as an extremely tall, grey figure, it can also be encountered as a strong presence that causes intense feelings of dread and terror among hikers. Some hikers have turned and seen a huge grey figure looming out of the fog, while others have simply found the terror too much and fled the area. What’s alarming is that a lot of these people are experienced hikers who know the mountain well.
When sighted, the entity seems to follow at a distance, though on one occasion, people driving through the area reported seeing a large creature with an inhuman face chasing their car, keeping pace with them up to speeds of 45mph, and seemingly attempting to get into the car.
This is not the only hint that the entity might be malicious. It has been reported that hikers, driven into panic by the terror that accompanies the presence, have become disorientated in fog and found themselves close to running over the edge of the cliffs at Lurchers Crag. Perhaps most disturbingly of all is the fact that some of the survivors reported being drawn to cliff edges and precipices almost hypnotically.
The Yeren has been a part of the folklore of southern and central China for centuries. Apparently, ancient Chinese literary works and folk legends include references to big hairy manlike creatures, which live in the vast forests of the Quisling-Bashan-Shennongjia, a mountain region of central China.
Although widely considered a superstitious myth in contemporary Chinese society, the Yeren boasts a history of sightings by scientists and dignitaries, rather than just common folk. In 1940, biologist Wang Tselin claimed to examine the corpse of a Wildman that had been killed in the Gansu region. He said it was a female specimen over six feet tall, with striking features that appeared to be a cross between ape and human. Geologist Fan Jingquan, in 1950, reported seeing Wildmen in the forests of the Shanxi province.
A large scale expedition operated from 1980-1985 near Songbai in Shennongjia forest. More than two hundred footprints were collected on Mount Quiangdao at 2,400 m. The footprints discovered on the first occasion were 48 cm in length, with an average stride of 2.5 m. Many eyewitness accounts have also been recorded, but again no “wild man” was captured or photographed.
