Sightings/Encounters?

Post by chumley » Jul 16 2007 9:18 am

First off, let me make my opinion known: I personally find this to be really amusing. Either some people have very vivid imaginations and no understanding of wildlife, or I'm jealous of where they get whatever they're on. :biggrin:

But I accidentally came across this website and since most HAZ members have spent plenty of time in many of the areas listed, I thought I'd post a link. You may find the same amusement I did, or perhaps you can corroborate a story?

Seems like Bigfoot likes Coconino and Apache counties the most.
I wonder (but not enough to search for it) if there's a similar site for Chupacabra sightings? :yikes:

@MtnBart01
I can't believe they have a Sign.... :sl: BTW, if you ever get a Photo of one crossing there, I'll make the Label...And Relatives and Friends don't count..... :sweat: Shoot, get Preston up there and the Sign and Label would actually be accurate.... :D

this article claims bears, horses, cows, humans, etc
Bigfoot hair samples ruled out through DNA analysis
evidence was obviously mishandled or tampered

Surprisingly I saw no reports of sightings in the Sierra Ancha? You know they are there!

One of those Bigfoot search reality shows taped an episode about 20 miles from here (which was also about 50 miles from NYC). I don't know what led them to think it was good habitat, but in our most densely populated state (even well-peopled before Europeans got here 400 years ago), it would take a miracle to escape notice.

Are you implying that if there was even one in your area it would have an ear tag from the New Jersey Division of Fish and Wildlife on it by now? :sl:

I wouldn't bet too heavily on Fish and Wildlife, but it would surely be tagged with at least four colors of paintballs, if not already served as "venison" jerky.

Apparently the brits are certain they've found a crashed flying saucer in Arizona.

The beauty of media/social media/trending/whatever these days!

Anybody wanna explain it to them? :lol:

They did not find the flying saucer that still lies embedded into a southern Arizona mountain side however. There is a picture or two of it on HAZ but I do not have the time to look for it right now. Can someone one who knows, picture it here so we can increase tourism from good ole England.

My greatest discovery on GE was an intact downed plane on Perry Mesa. Then another at a different location and another...WoW! It seems that the satellites can capture planes in flight....doh.
So back to the Chum Factor, is it a livestock water tank or a border water station?

@Alston Neal
I checked recently, and they have removed it evidently. I don't see it on GE any more.

There is a green circle there in 2007 (stock tank with water in it?) and in 2009 it looks like a circular stock tank empty. The photo they use ( 12/2013) looks like the same concrete stock tank that probably doesn't hold water anymore and now has 5 black plastic water tanks inside of it.
