Report of Wolflike Creatures



Beth Kjersti, a resident of Madison, contacted the Singular Fortean Society lately to describe her encounter with two unusual wolf-like creatures.

Approximately a decade ago, on a Sunday morning in the spring or summer, around 2:30 a.m., Beth was driving home from work through the Midvale Heights area in Madison.

At the time, she was employed as a “shot-girl” at a bar in nearby Sun Prairie, but she emphasized that neither she nor her co-workers had been drinking or overtired.

“I was on a residential street just blocks from my house when I spotted two enormous wolf-like animals darting across the road in front of me; I was shocked and slammed on the brakes, but they were gone before I could get a decent look,” she told investigator Tobias Wayland.

Honestly, this recollection has stuck with me more than any other animal crossing the road because their appearance was so peculiar. It resembled two dogs standing side by side (similar to how sled dogs are attached), but they were GIANT—bigger than a wolf and more like a bear—solid white/silver in color, but their features were missing. It resembled a silhouette and a shadow.

It resembled a projection that rapidly swept across the street from right to left. I do not recall them touching the ground. They moved irregularly. It was like a glitch in reality, or as if they suddenly emerged from another realm and spilled into the roadway in front of me.

It made no sense, but it didn’t frighten me; I was just astonished that I almost hit them, but I wasn’t terrified since, even if I had, they were probably just an apparition. And since I believe in these things nonetheless, I just said “that was strange” and headed home.

There were no other vehicles present, and the incident lasted approximately three to five seconds. There are no other lights on or unusual weather. There is no forest nearby, nor is there any other reason for two enormous wolves to be prowling the area. It resembled an instantaneous projection.

She continued by describing the creatures in greater detail, stating that they were “comparable to a poor child’s picture of a large wolf. A lion-sized individual with exaggerated, lumpy features.”

“It resembled a blur or smudge, as if the child drew its form and then brushed his fingers over it “She stated, “However, I recall my head shouting ‘WOLF!’ before I understood it wasn’t a wolf since it was as large as a lion.”

Beth was merely temporarily shocked by her experience, not really terrified.

She stated, “It was a genuinely bizarre ‘huh?’ experience, after which I went home and to bed.”

Beth’s supplied map of the region. “The X indicates where I was living at the time, and the star indicates approximately where I saw the image. I cannot recall if it occurred before or after Tocara Lane. Presidential Lane is not a particularly long or rural lane, so the presence of two enormous wolves made little sense to me. They were simply not moving normally. They rushed too quickly across the street and into the shadows “She stated,

Beth’s experience is reminiscent of two encounters with odd creatures in Beloit, Wisconsin.

The most recent of these occurred in 2019 outside of Rockton, Illinois.

In this instance, a guy and his wife were traveling home at 11 p.m. on August 8, 2019 when they observed an animal they could not identify.

“[My wife] observed light-reflecting eyes and concluded it was a typical animal” (opossum or raccoon). I noticed movement and thought it was a deer because its front legs were longer than those of a canine “The gentleman stated. “Then, as it crossed in front of us on the road, we recognized it was not a deer. Or any other plainly identifiable species. I grew up in rural locations and am familiar with a variety of country animals. It was neither a coyote nor a fox. It had a round head and a flat face, with neither a nose nor a muzzle. It had no discernible ears, or they were quite close to its head. In the car’s headlights, the color was practically mud-red in a dark brown hue. It had a long, slender tail that curled underneath as it loped down the road. It walked in a manner that could only be compared to that of an ape or bear, as if walking on all fours was faster yet unnecessary. My wife and I compared its movement to that of a gibbon. It left a strange impact on us both, as we cannot agree on what kind of creature it could be.”

Greek Mythology Chimera, having a lion’s head and a goat’s body.

This report describes a chimera that is disturbingly similar to something a wife and her husband apparently saw near Beloit, Wisconsin in 2013. This sighting occurred only eight miles to the north of the last one.

According to the wife’s account on the incident in 2013:

It moved with cat-like grace and a long, flicking tail. It did not resemble a cat, except for the head. It was dark, but not black, with a mixture of brindled, dark browns and black. The dog-like fur had a glossy sheen and was short. It had a gigantic head in the shape of a triangle, and its eyes were enormous and green. The head appeared to be so sturdy that a baseball bat would shatter if it were struck. It had no nose like a dog or bear, since it was flat like a cat. It had a triangular torso and extremely powerful legs that dipped like a bulldog’s. The rear end consisted of a smaller triangle with legs that separated like a German Shepherd. This was a large, muscular creature. I estimate that the top of its head would have reached my chin, about four feet. Approximately equal in length to the body was the tail.

The earlier witness added, “What was puzzling was that the creature moved like a cat yet did not resemble a cat.” “I had the impression the entire time that it was aware of our presence and considered the scenario humorous. Additionally, the longer one viewed it, the more difficult it became to see. Like its edges were blurring. It sat down in a cat-like ‘C’ position approximately 30 feet from the road. It was staring at us, and I was doing the same. The longer I saw it, however, the image almost appeared pixelated.”

The most recent witness expressed a similar sensation of extreme weirdness throughout his encounter.

“Even as I write this, my mind is still attempting to figure out what the peculiar feeling was. The entire encounter lasted only a few seconds “he said.

As for Beth, she was unaware of the other sightings in southern Wisconsin, although she conceded they resembled her own.

“The pixelation reference piqued my interest,” she remarked. Yes, it was comparable but not identical to that.

‘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.
