MILWAUKEE — Some Waukesha County residents are wondering what they’ve been seeing in their back yards.

A woman from Wales snapped a photograph of an animal in her yard recently.

There have been different theories as to what the image shows. Some have speculated that the animal is a “chupacabra” — a legendary creature rumored to prey on goats.

The woman told 12 News she talked to officials at a local wildlife center who told her the animal is likely a red fox with mange, a skin disease caused by parasitic mites.



Siberian Yeti’s at war with Bears ?

“Yeti Sketch”


An expedition that was looking for the mysterious yeti in Mountain Shoria – a faraway region in the Siberian taiga – has recently returned home. The expedition’s members claim that the forest fires of this extremely hot summer made Altai yetis move to the Kuzbass region, where they have started a “war” with local bears.

Searches for this mysterious creature, also known as “bigfoot” or “snowman”, started several decades ago. People look for yetis – or, at least, their traces – elsewhere: in Canada, Europe, Mongolia, Azerbaijan, Tajikistan and Russia. Several times, yetis’ traces have been found – footsteps that resemble that of humans but are too big for a man, flocks of hair or gigantic branch shelters in forests. In 1967, a certain Roger Patterson even filmed a yeti in northern California, but experts still argue whether this shooting is real or fake.

This year’s expedition to Mountain Shoria is already the third. One of its participants, the director of the International Center for Hominology Igor Burtsev assures that yetis leave traces of their stay in the taiga and fight with local bears.

“They make strange pyramidal constructions of trunks and branches in the wood – sometimes 3 or 4 meters, sometimes only 30 cm high. Sometimes they bend huge trees and twist their trunks like wheels. A human being is just not strong enough for that, and there seems to be no need for bears to do this. At first, we thought that yetis do this to make shelters, but then we came to the conclusion that this is a sort of landmark for them. Or, maybe, this is a way for a yeti to say something to its congeners.”

Igor Burtsev has talked with local residents who claim that they have seen yetis with their own eyes. Sometimes, farmers take them for wood goblins.

“Folk beliefs say that the wood goblin is the master of the woods. All animals, even bears, submit to him. The wood goblin has a strong hypnotic power, thus he is not afraid of any animal.”

Scientists think that these ancient beliefs do have some grounding – it seems that today yetis in Siberia are competing with bears, and the yetis are winning – they are obviously stronger and have rudimentary intellect. If this “war” between yetis and bears continues, there is a risk that bears will not sleep this winter because of a shortage of food, instead going to villages in search of something to eat. To prevent this, the region’s authorities plan to organize bear feeding. However, it seems that local residents have already found a common language with the yetis – they leave candies for them and communicate with them mentally – yetis are believed to be telepathic. Igor Burtsev even claims that to a certain extent, yetis can imitate the human language. “I would, without doubt, call the yeti another species of man,” he says.



Chinese group to relaunch search for Bigfoot

The Hubei Wild Man Research Association (HWMRA) in China’s Hubei province announced they are recruiting researchers from around the world to join its team in relaunching the search for the Bigfoot creature in the Shennongjia forest region. Luo Baosheng, vice president of HWMRA, told Xinhua, China’s state run news agency, that team members must be in good physical health and it is preferred they are between the age of 25 and 45 years old. “Most importantly, we want the team members to be devoted, as there will be a lot of hard work in the process”, he said.

Researchers in China have been looking for the ‘Bigfoot” phantom, also known as “Yeren” or “Wild Man”, since the 1970’s, but the last time an organized search took place was in the early 1980’s. HMRWA member Wang Shancai said this new search will cost about $1.5 million U.S. dollars. Wang is also an archeologist with the Hubei Provincial Institute of Cultural Relics and Archeology.

Xinhua said there have been over 400 reported sightings of the half-man, half-ape “Yeren” in the Shennongjia area, but evidence found so far, which has included hair, footprints, and a sleeping nest, has been inconclusive. Groups in the United States have also been looking for years for “Bigfoot” also known as “Sasquatch”. The Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization (BFRO) in the United States claims to be the oldest and biggest organization dedicated to finding the creature.
