Radioactive Hybrid Terror Pigs Have Settled in Fukushima’s Exclusion Zone



Human resettlement following the 2011 nuclear disaster is being hampered by indestructible, tusked intruders.

In the area surrounding the former Fukushima nuclear power plant, scientists have discovered a new threat to humanity: indestructible radioactive hybrid terror pigs.

The details emerged from studies of how radiation from the plant’s partial nuclear meltdown in 2011 affected local wildlife, which has in many cases “rewilded” urban areas vacated years ago by populations forced to relocate due to the disaster’s threat of radiation.

Following large-scale human evacuations, similar rewilding situations occurred in the area surrounding the site of the Chernobyl incident in 1986, despite Soviet authorities’ efforts to control the animal population.

The NBC-suited researchers working on the project expected to find wild boar in the affected area because they have been reported in former urban areas for several years, having come down from the surrounding mountains to reclaim the towns and cities as their own realm almost as soon as humans vacated them.

The local wild boar – a subspecies known as the Japanese Boar became cocky and aggressive when humans left the area.

According to a report in the Proceedings of the Royal Society B journal, the scientists were not prepared for the true prospect that awaited them.

The local wild boar – a subspecies endemic to the region known as the Japanese Boar (aka Sus scrofa leucomystax or the White-Moustached Pig) – became cocky and aggressive, as well as losing their natural wariness, after establishing a fiefdom covering the entire area vacated by over 160,000 displaced humans.

The marauding boar also started interbreeding with escaped domestic pigs who had escaped with their trotters from local farms after their human keepers were forced to flee. The pigs, for their part, were unfit for life in the wild in a radioactive, post-apocalyptic wasteland and presumably joined forces with the tough, wily boar as their best chance of survival.

As a result, a new type of boar-pig hybrid emerged in the initial exclusion zone within 20 kilometers of the nuclear plant’s site, where radiation levels were presumably highest. Despite being exposed to high doses of radiation, the hybrids showed no signs of mutation, according to the study. Indeed, surveys of the local boar population revealed that they are contaminated with up to 300 times the safe human dose of the deadly isotope cesium-137. In other words, they are highly radioactive and appear to be indestructible.

These hybrids now make up to 10% of the local population, clearly combining the wild smarts of their boar ancestors with an appreciation for the finer things that human civilization can bring, which they inherited from their domesticated forefathers.

This is presumably why humans attempting to reclaim their former settlements in the Fukushima plant area for eventual reopening have found it difficult to dislodge the porcine intruders from their newly taken strongholds. Since the incident, the Fukushima exclusion zones have been gradually lifted in stages to allow former residents to return.

In some cases, the aggressive porkers refused to yield and attacked returning humans, forcing human authorities to dispatch armed assassination teams of hunters to flush them out.

The fate of the Fukushima terror pigs is unknown. An indestructible boar army of that type would surely be able to overrun the rest of the Japanese archipelago and, The Reg fears, possibly the entire world if they had the intelligence to team up and combine into one unstoppable force.

Unfortunately for the boar, although they naturally live in matriarchal groups called sounders, their natural aggression and territorial nature mean that combining the Fukushima boar into one huge, terrifying unit, whether for the purpose of destroying human civilization or for any other reason, would be very out of character.

While the hybridization of the two species appears to have had no negative effects on the resulting animals, the pig genes in their makeup will eventually spread and dilute as the hybrid animals move further from their ground-zero birthplace, until “the introgressed genes will eventually disappear in this area,” according to the ecologists who studied them.

Because of their superior firepower and coordination, the boar should be forced back into the mountains, where their desire for the trappings of human culture will gradually fade and the memory of their time as unquestioned warlord rulers of the region will fade.

Generations of boar will look down on human settlements from their mountain fortresses, regretting and recognizing their missed opportunity to conquer the world.

‘Queen’ Founding Member Shares Crop Circle Picture



On May 24th, Brian May, a founding member of the rock band Queen who later earned a Ph.D. in astrophysics, posted several images to Instagram of a crop circle seen near Marlborough, England.

“Have you noticed anything out of the ordinary here in the English countryside?” The photos were captioned by May. “I’d never seen a crop circle before. As a result, I’m always skeptical of them. But yesterday, as we flew back from our production rehearsal space, over a location near Marlborough, there was this. […] Who creates these fascinating works of mathematical art? Is it a hoax? Are they created by extraterrestrials? And… how…? And what is their goal?”
Responses to May’s post have been mixed, with some claiming that the phenomenon is paranormal, while others believe that hoaxers are to blame.

Crop circles have sparked speculation in the modern era since at least the mid-1970s, with theories ranging from hoaxers to otherworldly beings to “earth energies.”

Despite the fact that people have claimed responsibility for certain crop circle formations, mysterious circles of flattened plants discovered in fields date back much further than modern-day hoaxers.

W.Y. Evans-Wentz recorded folktales of faeries coming in the night to thresh farmers’ grain in his 1911 book The Fairy Faith in Celtic Countries. Similarly, in 1678, an English woodcut pamphlet depicts ‘The Mowing-Devil,’ who is shown mowing crops in a circular pattern.

While some dismiss these as folkloric inspiration for modern-day hoaxers, others see them as proof of a phenomenon that predates man-made imitation.

No one has yet claimed responsibility for the crop circle photographed by May.

DoD Announces Expanded Effort to Investigate UFOs



According to a press release issued by the Department of Defense (DoD):

Due to the passage of the National Defense Authorization Act for fiscal 2022, Deputy Secretary of Defense Kathleen Hicks, in consultation with the Director of National Intelligence (DNI), amended her original directive to the Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence & Security on July 15, 2022, by renaming and expanding the scope of the Airborne Object Identification and Management Group (AOIMSG) to the All-domain Anomaly Resolution Office (AARO).

USD(I&S) Hon. Ronald S. Moultrie informed the department today of the establishment of AARO within the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence and Security, and named Dr. Sean M. Kirkpatrick, most recently the chief scientist at the Defense Intelligence Agency’s Missile and Space Intelligence Center, as its director.

The AARO’s mission will be to coordinate efforts across the Department of Defense and other federal departments and agencies in the United States to detect, identify, and attribute objects of interest in, on, or near military installations, operating areas, training areas, special use airspace, and other areas of interest, and, as needed, to mitigate any associated threats to operational safety and national security. Anomaly, unidentified space, airborne, submerged, and transmedium objects are included.

Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence and Security (USD(I&S)) Ronald Moultrie will lead the AARO Executive Council (AAROEXEC), which will provide oversight and direction to the AARO along the following primary lines of effort:

1. Surveillance, Collection and Reporting
2. System Capabilities and Design
3. Intelligence Operations and Analysis
4. Mitigation and Defeat
5. Governance
6. Science and Technology

This newly reported expansion of the Pentagon’s UFO investigation program follows low congressional trust in their investigative efforts.

Following the release of the much-anticipated preliminary assessment report on UFOs by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence last year, many in the intelligence community were critical of what they saw as the report’s failure to offer any concrete explanations for most of the incidents examined, particularly in light of concerns about secret Russian or Chinese technology.

The Pentagon then promised to revamp the task force in charge of investigating UFOs, which resulted in the formation of the AOIMSG, which has since been renamed the AARO.

This reflects Congress’ growing interest in UFOs, which was most recently demonstrated during a House Intelligence Subcommittee hearing on the subject last May—the first of its kind in more than 50 years.

The congressional hearing allowed lawmakers to question the Pentagon about unidentified aerial phenomena (UAP)—the current government term for UFOs—and for government officials to explain their current position and outline plans to investigate the issue further.

During the hearing, there were few mentions of extraterrestrials, though the Pentagon did express a particular interest in reports containing unusual flight characteristics such as incredible speed, transmedium capabilities, and undetectable means of propulsion.

Since the existence of the Pentagon’s Advanced Aviation Threat Identification Program (AATIP), which reportedly ran from 2007 to 2012, was made public in 2017, congressional interest in UFOs has skyrocketed.

Interest in the encounters between Navy pilots and UFOs grew, and in 2019, several senators, including Sen. Mark Warner (D-Va.), then vice chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, were briefed on them.

The Senate Intelligence Committee, led at the time by Senator Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), then included a directive in their Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2021 ordering the Director of National Intelligence (DNI) to create a report on “unidentified aerial phenomena” in consultation with the Secretary of Defense.

That bill resulted in the formation of the Unidentified Aerial Phenomena Task Force (UAPTF), which was in charge of producing the aforementioned preliminary assessment report.

The Marlborough Monkey is a Cryptid Fans Classic



The latest documentary by researcher and filmmaker Karac St. Laurent, The Legend of the Marlborough Monkey, takes a fresh look at an older and often overlooked series of cryptid sightings in New Hampshire.

Most people don’t think of Bigfoot sightings in the northeastern United States, but St. Laurent has made a compelling case for taking the subject seriously while still having fun along the way.

The film is a tribute to the classic cryptid documentaries of the 1970s, and it was shot to look like an 8mm film being watched on a VHS tape. With thematic music and Robert Ready’s absolutely perfect deadpan narration, viewers could be forgiven for not immediately recognizing this as a documentary shot in 2021.

Despite its aesthetic, the film is very much a product of modern investigation, and St. Laurent conducts field investigations using equipment anachronistic to the 1970s, both solo and in collaboration with Small Town Monsters alum Aleksandar Petakov.

When some filmmakers might have been content to show only the interviews with researchers and witnesses included in the documentary, the field investigations were a nice touch. Folklorist John Horrigan is an especially bright addition to an already entertaining documentary, and his unique blend of wit and historical storytelling could have carried the film on its own.

Horrigan, interestingly, coined the term “The Marlborough Monkey” to describe the hairy humanoid being reported by New Hampshire residents in the 1990s, based on one account in which the witness said the creature looked like an orangutan. Those reports never stopped, and sightings of ‘The Marlborough Monkey’ are still being reported today.

St. Laurent, however, does not stop with stories; similarly to his first documentary, Release the Bodette Film, a variety of evidence is presented for the viewers to peruse. Much like that film, the viewer is ultimately left to decide what to believe, despite the fact that the vast majority of the film approaches the subject from a staunchly materialistic standpoint. Petakov makes a passing reference to high strangeness during an interview late in the film, but otherwise the assumption is that if something strange is going on, it’s most likely an undiscovered primate. This isn’t necessarily a negative, depending on your point of view, and those who prefer materialist science in the hunt for cryptids will appreciate the film’s mainstream take on the phenomenon.

That viewpoint is consistent with the 1970s-era documentaries to which it pays homage, and given the evidence presented, there’s never any sense that the investigation should be taking a different path. If The Legend of Boggy Creek is one of your favorite documentaries, check out The Legend of the Marlborough Monkey.

The Legend of the Marlborough Monkey has a run time of 43:14 and will be available to watch for free on the Crash-Course Cryptozoology YouTube channel starting at noon on September 12th. Expect it to be available on DVD around Thanksgiving.
