    If your ears perk up when you hear the word 'chupacabra', you're not alone. KOB sat down with a New Mexico researcher who claims to know why chupacabra sighting are on the rise and why more bodies than ever are being found. Ben Radford is that man – a local investigator and writer, and the author of 'Tracking the Chupacabra.' He's fascinated with the people's fascination with chupacabras and has spent years wondering if they are real. "When people say skeptics are debunkers – that's mean, evil and gloomy. I would love to find chupacabra; I would love to find...

    It’s officially legal to kill Bigfoot in Texas Cryptid conservationists, be on the alert; it's officially open season on Sasquatch. According to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, if you can find Bigfoot in the state of Texas, you can kill it. Cryptomundo reader John Lloyd Scharf sent a letter to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department about whether it would be legal to kill Bigfoot, and apparently department Chief of Staff L. David Sinclair replied that killing an indigenous cryptid would be legal since it isn't listed as a game animal: The statute that you cite (Section 61.021) refers...

    Russian Ufologists and cryptozoology fans are excited by another UFO or possible cryptid that was photographed over the Kremlin in Moscow, Russia (see above). The event occurred on December 21 at around 7pm just days after at least a hundred witnesses sighted a mammoth pyramid UFO over the Kremlin. A photojournalist had set up a a camera for a timed shot. Nothing was seen during the shoot, however when the picture was developed the UFO or mystery creature was noticed. The question as to whether it is an alien UFO or an unknown life-form is now being debated. Some believe...

    The Beast of Cannock Chase is back - and on the hard-shoulder. Motorists on Junction 10A of the M6, near Cannock, jammed Highways Agency helplines on Wednesday morning, with reports of a 'wolf-like creature' racing between lanes at rush hour. Motorists looked on in disbelief as the three-foot long creature, described as 'greyish black', raced between lanes, dodging stunned motorists before diving for cover in nearby trees. Highways Agency staff joined motorway police to hunt for the creature and later stated the 'beast' was likely to be a husky dog. But a spokesperson at Saga Radio, whose eye-in-the-sky traffic reports...

    Downfall of the Yarri, or Will the real Thylacoleo please stand up? Darren Naish In 1926 A. S. le Souef and Harry Burrell included the ‘Striped marsupial cat’ in their influential popular volume The Wild Animals of Australasia. Concerning a cryptid reported from Australia and usually termed the Queensland tiger, their decision was significant as few cryptids have been regarded so sympathetically by non-cryptozoologists. This near-acceptance reflected both the apparent quality and consistency of eyewitness accounts as well as the long-standing academic interest there had been in the creature. First brought to attention by European Australians in the 1870s,...
