Monsters Are Real. And They Aren’t Scared of Us.
This article from CNN seeks to explain “Why Bigfoot is Getting Nervous.” It’s a cool read. It reports on a sighting of the Wolfman of Chestnut Mountain, Illinois and features commentary from Ms. Linda Godfrey, who is famous as the lead investigator of the Beast of Bray Road, Wisconsin phenomenon and as the writer of the books AMERICAN MONSTERS, MONSTERS AMONG US, REAL WOLFMEN, and THE BEAST OF BRAY ROAD. Concerning the former, the Illinois Wolfman, it stands on two legs and has glowing WHITE eyes; the latter characteristic is anomalous. Such beasts typically have RED eyes.
According to the article, monsters should be getting antsy because of the advanced technology the monster hunters are bringing into the game. “[They] are upping their game…using night-vision equipment, sophisticated listening devices, camera traps activated by motion sensors and even drones that fly over rugged forests inaccessible to human beings.” Goody for them–but they still aren’t going to capture any evidence for the existence of a monster. Not unless the monster wants them to.
It pisses some cryptid hunters off to no end to say that there’s something supernatural about the monsters they are hunting–but there is. Yes, it is possible that there are SOME strange animals still out there that we have yet to discover. But creatures like the Wolfman of Chestnut Mountain aren’t just animals. They are something, for lack of any better word, MORE. Or, as one expert quoted in the article says: “Monsters are a miracle.” I agree wholeheartedly. They are. And they aren’t worried about being “outed” by some intrepid monster hunter. Sorry, cryptozoologists.
