Goodness,how time flies!
Here we are almost to the end of October already.
My favorite time of year.
The leaves are turning color,the air is crisp and cool,and the crypto world is booming.
In Michigan(my home state),big cat sightings are on the uprise.
Cougars are becoming more numerous,but being "poo pooed" by the local authority.
In early October,a man named Todd Fowler set up a trip cam to see how many deer were visiting the area around where he had set up his deer blind.
Instead of a prized set of antlers,he got a snapshot of what clearly looks to be a cougar. But when he showed the photo to a DNR agent, he was told the animal in question was a "bobcat".
I dont know,folks. I think it wouldnt hurt for the DNR agent to get an eye examination.
In my humble opinion, the creature is a cougar.
But dont take my word for it. Check out the full story and photo by clicking the link below, and determine what it is for yourself :

The reasons for denial are anyone's guess.
It could be an effort to protect them... IE: 'If we convince you that youre crazy or blind,you are less likely to go back out to the woods with a gazillion of your friends to cause a disturbance.'
Or it could be that the DNR and other related authorities are horribly short staffed and cannot handle the task of monitoring them.
It could also be just plain ol control and misuse of authority.
Who knows for sure. We can only keep guessing at this point.
Til then,Im sure the sightings will continue to make the headlines and become wonderful campfire stories.
Ive got some news coming up that you wont want to miss,so be sure to stay tuned for details in the coming weeks.
Winter may be just around the corner,but that doesnt stop the planning of expeditions and research into mysterious creatures.
As most of you well know,my favorite cryptid,and the one I am most passionate about is the Michigan Dogman.
For those of you unfamiliar with this particular creature,please be sure to check out Steve Cook's "The Legend,Legacy Edition" which can be found and purchased at :

Ta ta for now!
