Summer Recap.

Since it seems that news reports relating to Cryptozoology have somewhat died down as of late, I thought I would do a little recap of the some of the summer's bigger stories.

First was the big story about the Manitoba video. I remember all of the hype and hoopla for that video and when it was finally shown.... what a letdown. A long-range, blurry video of a dark blob against some trees. I should have known better to get caught up in that hype. Although, that story and video did bring Bigfoot back into the news.

Which leads to the next big Bigfoot sighting.

The Bigfoot sightings in the Yukon (link is currently unavailable). These sightings were reported by more than a few people in the Yukon region of Canada. What really made this story stand out however, was the the supposeded Sasquatch hair sample that was found after one of the sightings. After several tests, the sample turned out to be just Bison Hair.

Not to be outdone by Bigfoot however, there were quite a few lake monster sightings this summer. A lot of those were in Canada as well.

There was the sighting on Lake Champlain. There was supposedley pictures and videos of this sighting, but I was never able to find them. I don't think they were ever released.

Speaking of unreleased pictures, who can forget the sighting on Lake Massawippi. This was probably the high-point of sightings for me so far this year. Mainly due to the photo enhancement that I did of the photo of "Whippy". Who can forget that lizard-like face peering up out of the water.

One also remembers that I spent many days trying to secure copies of the original photos for enhancing. This was to no avail unfortunately. Although after further scrutiny, the sighting and photos appeared to be a mis-identification and was, most likely, a fish.

These are just a few of the sightings and reports this summer.

As the news keeps coming in, you can be sure that I will post it.

So, stay tuned!
