Camp Pendleton Sasquatch Sighting

In the Fall of 1968, four marines from Camp Pendleton saw a sasquatch-like creature during nighttime training. The witness submitted his report of the encounter in 2001 anonymously. The marines were waiting in a dug-out hill, a little after midnight. The group heard something coming up the side of the mountain. The marines told whoever it was to stop, but that was when they saw it. The witness claimed they saw a huge monster, around seven feet tall and three-and-a-half feet wide. It also had a pointed head with long hanging arms. The marines were terrified and waited silently as the monster walked off. It’s hard to say that these four men were just seeing things, but what they did see might not have been Bigfoot. It could have just as easily been a bear by this description.

Kraken Sightings

For centuries, we always assumed that the Kraken wasn’t real. It made total sense to only categorize it among the mythological monsters that seamen told tall tales about when they came ashore. It was always described as a large squid or octopus of some kind, which seemed so crazy. Keep in mind, they also told us stories about mermaids and other sea monsters that were just being referenced to make them sound cooler. However, we have now proven that giant squids do actually exist. It is also proven that they do not mind attacking anyone in their territory. Yet most of these creatures aren’t nearly as large as the Kraken has been reported to be. That tells us either there were potentially larger squids centuries ago, or they did see very large squids and created a myth to make them seem much larger.

‘Finding Bigfoot’s’ Multiple Encounter Stories

The Animal Planet show, Finding Bigfoot, ran for 9 seasons somehow from 2011 to 2018. “Researchers” on the show examined a lot of sasquatch encounters worldwide. Did they find Bigfoot in all that time? Obviously not. Yet to be fair to the show, they did interview several people with relatively good evidence. This resulted in several videos or pictures where one could potentially believe Bigfoot or some other sasquatch was present. Most of the time, this “evidence” was never really enough to prove anything. In spite of this, the encounters many of the people claimed they had including some videos were absolutely insane. If nothing else, this show brought out some incredible stories. The problem is that they never truly lived up to the title of the show, as Bigfoot was never found in 100 episodes.
