Living here in Oregon, we hear alot about the Bigfoot & Sasquatch sightings that seem to be common in certain areas of Oregon & Washington.
Sightings appear to be seasonal, which I find interesting- that would mean that the creature would appear nomadic.
I have to say that Bigfoot is my favorite Crypto-Kritter, although the Dover Demon sightings really had me scared to look into the branches of trees for a while...
Yellow or red-eyed Graveyard dogs, also considered Black Dogs, are also of a big interest to me as I've seen a couple of them, and I'm not sure what the deal is with that. However, I did not feel threatened by either encounter. The one time I saw the Graveyard Dog I was very young & walking along with my friend's family of Spanish descent. They told me in Spanish & English just to ignore it, that it was a "Devil Dog" and it would just go away. It followed us along for a while before it did bound away and I didn't see it again.
What amazes me about this encounter, is the fact that the family was very nonchalant about the appearance of the "Devil Dog." Culturally, its appearance wasn't to be feared, but ignored. I remember it had yellow eyes and I've never forgotten that. The other one I encountered had a magenta tint in its eyes and wasn't all black, but more of a mottled coat. I actually talked to that one, and he eventually turned from me and went to who knows where.
WEIRD STUFF MAYNARD :unsure:
