MY two cents about the Gable/MQ situation

Good morning everyone.
Firstly, Id like to thank you for all the compliments I have been recieving about my part in the expedition for MonsterQuest. I had a great time out there with the crew and team, and learned a lot about being on film as well. (As some of you already know, this was my very first exposure on national television. )
The first thing I learned was that the camera really DOES add ten pounds, and wearing 30 pounds of cold weather and rain gear is NOT flattering to my hips and shoulders. It made me look like an offensive linebacker for the New York Jets! The Raven was not happy!
That being said......
Though I haven't read through all of my emails yet, I have seen several this morning that concerned me and I really would like to put my two cents in about the whole MonsterQuest/Gable controversy especially regarding my friend and one of my mentors in this field,Linda Godfrey.
While I understand the feelings of dissapointment of the truth being withheld for a period of time, I think we should take a serious look at the history behind all of this situation in its entirety, and realize that, while researchers and writers always want their public to know the TRUTH of the matters at hand, these things often take time to be brought to light a little at a time and with respect to ALL involved. And sometimes, our hands are just TIED. I give Linda a ton of credit for being able to delicately handle this situation and maintain silence about it until they felt it was the right time to bring it into the open. That doesn't mean LINDA was wanting to keep it away from you all for that long, it meant she was doing a professional job of keeping information "inside the circle" until they, again I stress THEY were ready to reveal it.
How many people do you know who can do that?
And to begin with, she didnt have any definitive proof she could just hand over to the public,anyway. She did the right thing in holding off and allowing things to unfold. She was put in a horrible position and did the best she could with it.
She is a professional in EVERY sense of the word. She has worked diligently to investigate, research, write, and most importantly,bring you all the truth of what is going on. And you couldnt know the frustration and heartache she probably felt having to keep this quiet for so long when she wanted so badly for you all to know the truth IMMEDIATELY.
Alot of people were kept silent, by the way. Not just Linda.
And just for the record, TV is TV, folks.
How it gets edited at the end of the day is completely out of the crew and team's hands. We had no more idea what was going to be the final product of the show than you did. We were all just out their doing the jobs we love to do and wanting the truth...just like YOU.

The fingers are definitely being pointed in the wrong direction on this one , folks!

Most importantly to remember here is the fact that MANY CREDIBLE WITNESSES have had experiences with creatures that defy orothodox science. One hoaxer's admission of a widespread prank does not devalue their accounts and frightening ordeals.

We are STILL on the hunt for the Beast, and each and every day we get closer to the answer of what is truly going on in our world.
Use discretion, analyze carefully, but remember too to keep an open mind.

I hope this helps clear up a few concerns.

Have a howling good day, haven fans!

Nick Redfern's weird weekend airport adventure :

My good friend Nick is no stranger to odd experiences in the woods, but this particular adventure of his was at the airport, and one of my favorite stories to hear him tell.
I know you'll enjoy it too:

If you would like to check out the episode of MonsterQuest that I participated in, it is entitled "America's Wolfman" and it will air on March 24th on the History channel.
You may want to check your local listings for air times.

I have to tell you guys, this was one of the most memorable times in my life thus far.
Those of you who know me personally, know that I and my family have suffered a tremendous amount of loss accompanied by overwhelming stress in the past two years, and this project came as both a healing intermission and a wonderful experience which I will never forget.
The film/production crew and everyone on the expedition were fantastic!
I dont think I have ever laughed so much in my entire life. What a great bunch! We had so much fun in between filming!
They have become a dear part of my heart and hopefully lifelong chums as well. I truly hope our paths come together again in the future.

As with any expedition of this sort, we also had our moments of frustration, exhaustion, and fear as well. But those are the ones we often learn the most from, so they have inspired me as well.

I hope this post finds you all enjoying this beautiful spring-like weather.
Many blessings to you.
Your Mistress of the Mysterious,
Raven M.

'Paranatural ' with Nick Redfern and Ken Gerhard

As the reports of chupacabras sightings are steadily on the increase, especially through Texas and Puerto Rico, you can bet researchers are hot on their trails trying to demystify these strange creatures.

Join my two good friends and fellow cryptozoologist / researchers Nick Redfern and Ken Gerhard on a clip of "Paranatural" to see what their views are on this fascinating and elusive cryptid.
Is it a known creature that is being misidentified? Is it alien? A research project gone wrong?
The only way to find out, is to stay hot on its trail!

I hope everyone is enjoying this first day of March!

Have a howling good day, Haven Fans!
