Father Tells Judge His Ex-Wife Is A Witch And Tried To Use Sorcery To Make Their Children Sick
A father has told a court his ex-wife is a witch and used sorcery to make their kids sick, in an attempt to get unsupervised access to them. The African-born preacher, who speaks French, was granted supervised visitation with his three sons for two hours once a month by the Brisbane Magistrates Court. Justice Colin Forrest said he did not believe the man's claims and ordered that he must only speak English the boys during the arranged meetings. The family came to Australia as refugees four years ago, and separated soon after arriving. The ex-wife told the court he physically and sexually assaulted almost on a daily basis since arriving, and even beat the children. In a court affidavit, the man said his ex-wife practiced witchcraft and devil worship and denied he abused his family.
'He said that it is the mother who has caused one of the boys to be shortsighted,' Justice Forrest said in a report on November 11. 'The father actually maintained that the mother, through the use of her witchcraft or sorcery, has deliberately made the children sick,' Justice Forrest said The mother was given sole custody of their three sons. The father has been ordered not to go within 200 metres of his ex-wife's place of work and worship, as well as his sons' schools.
Huge White Creature Leaps Across Snowy Russian Road
Two men driving in the middle of snowy Russia have sworn they captured the Yeti on camera. Their car was making its way along a very bumpy and snow-torn road when just metres ahead of them a white figure dashed across the road. The men start yelling and as quickly as the figure appeared it was soon gone again. “I mean it could have been someone’s cruel prank," the driver, Vadim Gilmanov, told local TV. "But on the other hand, who else could dash out so quickly in the middle of the night? In the middle of nowhere."
The men were driving on a road in the Republic of Bashkortostan, near the Urals mountain range. Folklore from this area of Russia tells the tale of a creature named Shurale – a shapeshifter with long fingers, a horn on its head and a body completely covered in woolly fur.
While no definitive proof has ever been found that creature such as the yeti, the abominable snowman and Bigfoot actually exist – over the years people have sworn to have captured them on camera. Only last month bizarre footage captured an enormous creature walking through a waterfall in Indonesia. While mystery abounds over the “first UK Bigfoot” video – taken by a man walking through the woods on Caerphilly Mountain near Cardiff in south Wales.
Doctors were left freaked out when they believed a balloon was possessed and haunting a hospital. Footage of the incident has gone viral after it showed hospital staff deeply unsettled when a balloon hovering inches from the floor seemed to follow them around the building. It shows an orange balloon floating inches above the floor.
It drifts purposefully along a corridor towards the camera, in a manner quite unlike the usual movement of helium or air-filled balloons. The balloon continues to move slowly and constantly towards the person filming, who is standing on the threshold of a room. Two employees’ voices - one male and one female - can be heard on the recording.The man says: "It’s coming towards us!" The footage then cuts to the employees standing in what seems to be a staff kitchen, filming the entrance to the room. Suddenly, the balloon appears and as if possessed, it turns and goes inside the room, and the two people shriek and run away scared.
The video was recorded in the Victor Vilela Children’s Hospital in central Argentina’s city of Rosario. Dante Taparelli, a local artist with an interest in the paranormal as well as being the image director of Rosario municipality, told a local TV station: "This is an entity, a soul, something, I don’t know what. "From my point of view, we should be very happy in these situations. I think it was a soul that was wandering around. There are open gates that we cannot perceive. These things give hope, they shouldn’t scare us." Meanwhile a man filmed the moment he woke up to the sound of banging and when he left his camera rolling it recorded a terrifying event. And horror footage has emerged which appears to show a woman possessed by a demon after she takes a bite out of a biscuit.
The Long Island home where six people were slaughtered in 1974, in a gruesome familial crime known as the "Amityville Murders," has been purchased. The 1927 Dutch Colonial house is where, in '74, Ronald DeFeo, Jr., then 23, shot and killed his parents and four younger siblings while they were sleeping. DeFeo is serving six concurrent sentences of 25 years to life. He shot his family members with a .35 Marlin rifle and each victim was found face down in their beds inside the home. DeFeo is imprisoned at the Green Haven Correctional Facility in Dutchess County. Regardless of its storied past, it seems to have a new taker in 2016. The home went into contract this week. Coldwell Banker Harbor Light Listing Agent Jerry O’Neill said, “We don’t discuss the terms of a sale until it’s closed.”
The 5,000-square-foot, five-bedroom, 3 1/2 bathroom house on 0.27 acres on the Amityville River, went on the market in June with a listing price of $850,000. The current owner bought the property in 2010 for $950,000. It was listed at $1.15 million. The recognizable home comes with a boathouse and a slip, both of which can be seen in the original film starring James Brolin and Margot Kidder. The home has been restored and updated. However, it still carries a late-1920s flair. The older features mix with newer installments, including a security system operated by cameras around the property. The home was the focus of Jay Anson’s book “The Amityville Horror” and Stuart Rosenberg’s film of the same name because of the gruesome DeFeo murders that unfolded within its walls. Following the first film, 17 others have been made about the home’s spine-chilling past, making it one of the most identifiable settings in the horror genre. The next film to carry the torch is Franck Khalfoun’s 2017 project, “Amityville: The Awakening,” out in January.
Increased Sightings Of Two-Headed Sharks Baffle Scientists
Two-headed sharks may seem like science fiction, but National Geographic is pointing out that they seem to be becoming more common around the world. As the report notes, past discoveries include two-headed pre-term sharks found off the Florida coast and in the Indian Ocean as well as two sets of conjoined twins found around Mexico.
Scientists in Spain have also announced that one of their lab shark embryos was growing two heads which is one of the first known instances of the phenomenon appearing in an egg-laying member of the species. As the team states in the resulting study, "Each head had a mouth, two eyes, a brain, a notochord [like a spinal cord], and five gill openings on each side." They also identified separate hearts, stomachs, and livers but one set of shared intestines, kidneys, and reproductive system. While researchers don't exactly know why these mutations are happening, occurrences in the wild have been attributed to infections, pollution, and overfishing causing the gene pool to shrink.
Loch Ness Monster May Have A long Lost Cousin In Russia, Named Labynkyr Devil.
A remote lake in Siberia has attracted worldwide attention after a series of bizarre events. Some locals believe the Labynkyr Devil is a monster that lives in the lake. One man claims this creature tore right through his fishing nets. Andrey Solovyev is a travel guide who has stationed himself there for the relentless winter months. No one else lives within almost 100 miles of the Lake Labynkyr’s frosty waters. The 32-year-old adventurer has been surviving off his daily fishing through ice holes but hit a snag when he noticed the damage to his nets. Andrey explained: “Some strange things were happening here, like in September when I set very robust nets and they were torn to shreds, like I could never imagine. “I saw huge - meters in diameter - holes on these nets. It definitely wasn't done by a fish, even a pike couldn't bite through this net.” Andrey also claims he saw something in the water that he can’t explain. He said: “Two weeks ago when the ice was still not completely frozen some dark creature swam out of the lake - but I couldn't identify it.”
The legend of Labynkyr Devil has existed since as far back as the 19th century. Scientists have found sonar readings that show at least one enormous creature dwells in the eerie lake. Part of the tale tells of a secret underground passage liking Labynkyr to a lake 20 miles away called Vorota. The lakes have identical water levels. A report by Itogi magazine analysed the sightings and said: “Comparing the stories we can say that it is 9-10 metres long, 1.2-1.5 metres wide.” Soviet geologist Viktor Tverdokhlebov told the Soviet Times: “There have been all sort of theories about what kind of creature it could be - a giant pike, a relic reptile or an amphibian. “We did not manage to prove or to disprove these versions... we managed to find remains of jaws and skeleton of some animal.” Recent footage captured in Alaska showed a bizarre object snaking its way through icy waters, leading some to speculate whether there’s a mystical beast calling that river home.
NASA's Amazing New Mars Footage 'Shows Fossilised Remains Of Creature' On Red Planet's Surface
These amazing images published by NASA appear to show the fossilised remains of a creature on Mars, it's claimed. They have sparked debate among UFO spotters though, as to exactly what was caught on camera. To some the photos show the remains of a sloth or grizzly bear-like creature crouching near a rock. They were released by the American space agency and have been enhanced with photo-editing and lighting effects to highlight the "creature".
According to leading voice Scott C Waring the Mars images are "interesting and unusual". Mr Waring who runs his website UFO Sightings Daily told the Daily Star: "It resembles a fossilised animal or a statue, but it’s difficult to tell without being able to examine it close-up. “The dark patch is the curly hair coat and its face area has significantly less hair. "Its two front teeth are extremely white, unlike any other colour on the creature. “I have to say it’s a fossil because of its hair and teeth.” But the team behind Paranormal Crucible who enhanced the images said they are not entirely convinced they show an animal. They said: "Interesting object found on the Martian surface, this time a possible statue or fossilised creature. "Even without processing the image you can clearly see that it looks artificial. "Resembles a bear or sloth-like creature to me, possibly with a shell, but to be honest it could be anything."
What Is That ‘Ice Monster’ In Alaska’s Chena River?
An Alaska Bureau of Land Management employee in Fairbanks was checking out ice on the Chena River Wednesday when he saw and recorded this “strange thing” that was moving up the river. The video, titled Chena River Ice Monster, was later posted on the BLM Facebook page.
“Our employees did not investigate,” the BLM wrote on its Facebook page. “It’s kind of far out in the middle of the river. Video was taken right by our BLM Fairbanks District Office facing downstream. We’re not sure what it is. We’re letting you all be the judge.”
Britain's Tidiest 'Ghost' Caught On Camera As Pub CCTV Shows Mysterious 'Help' During Closing Time Clean-Up
Britain's tidiest ghost has been 'caught on camera' after a pub landlord claims to have been spooked after CCTV caught mysterious help during closing time clean-up. Eerie footage shows licensee Katie Ann Round, 31, placing an A-board and mop in the back room of the boozer after closing time last week. But after she left the room at The Chapel House in Dudley, West Mids., the yellow wet floor sign seems to move mysteriously and fold itself neatly on the floor. Then, as her fiance Ben Parkes, 35, enters the shot, the mop in the corner of the room is propelled across the nearby table. Katie and business partner James Stevens, 39, are now calling in paranormal investigators to try and shed some light on the ghostly goings-on.
James, who has been running the pub with Katie for the last three months, said: "I was in my bedroom at the time and they came running up the stairs. "They had watched the footage after the mop fell over and they were both a bit frightened by what they saw. "And so was I. When I watched it back I just thought 'what the hell is that?'. It sent a chill down my spine. "The locals have told us about a few ghostly goings on over the years and the pub has been around since 1830. "There's been lots of talk about strange things happening here but this was our first experience of it. "I'm not really a believer in ghosts, but this makes you really think. It was a really weird experience and freaked me out a bit. "But we have to say it must be Britain's tidiest ghost. It did a very good job." Katie, of Tividale, West Mids., added: "I was cleaning up at the end of the night and heard something in the kitchen.
"I went out to look and couldn't see anything so I thought it was my other half pulling my leg. "Ben jumped out of his skin when the mop fell over. When we looked at the footage later, we couldn't believe it. "I didn't believe in ghosts at all but this really spooked me. There have been other incidents since. "Last Friday a glass on a shelf above the bar propelled off and hit me hard in the chest." Ben and Katie researched the pub, which they took over nine weeks ago, after the ghostly encounter and found it was over 200 years old. Ben added: "It turns out that the cellar at the pub, and the arches in the cellar were barred and used as overflow cells for the nearby police station. "Sometimes you can hear footsteps coming up stairs but then they just stop."
‘Mysterious Dragon’ Filmed Flying Through Chinese Mountains
A video showing a ‘dragon’ flying across a mountain range in China has left people bickering over whether the footage is real or fake. Uploaded by YouTuber ApexTV, the five-minute clip has been viewed almost 200,000 times and apparently shows the mythical beast flying over an unnamed mountain range somewhere near the border between China and Laos.
Dragons are seen as a majestic creature in China’s folklore and the footage has captivated many, but some viewers have disputed whether the animal is a dragon or a flying dinosaur. In the video, a person asks viewers if they think the creature is a “dragon or pterodactyl,” in reference to pterosaurs – flying reptiles believed to have become extinct 66 million years ago.
Woman Carrying Human Skull On Stick Leads Police To Remains
It was a ghoulish sight, but this was no Halloween decoration – police in Sacramento, California launched a death investigation after spotting a woman walking down the sidewalk with a skull perched on a stick. “There was a transient female walking down the 2900 block of Connie Drive. She actually had a skull in her possession," Sacramento police Sgt. Bryce Heinlein told reporters. Officers confronted the woman at an abandoned house on Connie Drive where their investigation began. “A call like this is not something that happens every day.
We hope we can get down to the bottom of what caused this person to become deceased," Heinlein said. “She brought the officers to the area where she located the skull." Police found the human remains at an abandoned homeless encampment a couple blocks away. Detectives, officers and crime scene technicians spent several hours between Wednesday afternoon and Thursday combing the area for clues. “When officers got out there, they located a decomposed body," Heinlein added. Philip, a neighbor, lives in a house next to the encampment where he says the homeless woman he called “Victoria” has lived for years. He pointed to the exact location where the body was discovered, a few feet from her stuff. “Right there.
Right past those bushes you see… To the right, right back there," Philip said. Warren’s house is also next to the encampment. He smelled something foul, thinking it was a dead cat. “I went to walk back there and thought, Damn! What the hell is that smell? It make me sick to my stomach, so I turned ... and came back here,” he said. “Twenty cop cars out here. And the cops got her out there. And they’re taking pictures of her holding a head. Then they get her hands and CSI showing up," Philip said. The coroner will determine the sex, ID and cause of death.
UFO Expert Found Dead Days After Texting Mom: 'Your boy's in Trouble - If Anything Happens To Me, Investigate'
A conspiracy theorist texted his mum to say 'If anything happens to me, investigate' just days before his mysterious death. Max Spiers, 39, a father to two boys, was found dead on a sofa in Poland, where he had gone to give a talk about conspiracy theories and UFOs. He was ruled to have died from natural causes despite no post-mortem examination being carried out on his body. But his dark investigations into UFOs and government cover-ups may have made him enemies who wanted him dead, says mother Vanessa Bates, 63. In a chilling text message to his mom just days before his death, Max wrote: "Your boy's in trouble. If anything happens to me, investigate."
Originally from Canterbury, Max lived in America for a few years, but had returned to the city to stay with his mother, before jetting off to Poland. Vanessa said: "He was making a name for himself in the world of conspiracy theorists and had been invited to speak at a conference in Poland in July. "He was staying with a woman who he had not known for long and she told me how she found him dead on the sofa. "But I think Max had been digging in some dark places and I fear that somebody wanted him dead." Max made a career out of investigating UFO sightings and alleged cover-ups More recently, he was said to be probing into the lives of well-known figures in politics, business and entertainment. His unexplained death, and its subsequent treatment by the authorities, has left many online followers convinced he was killed by government agents. Conspiracy theorists have long been convinced that UFO chasers who get too close to the truth are "bumped off" by the secret services or so-called men in black.
On one website, Project Camelot, a blogger wrote: "The entire circumstances are suspicious and I urge everyone to encourage the release of details about what really happened and call for an autopsy." Another, Craig Hewlett, added: "If it wasn't true what he talks about then why would they kill him? Healthy people don't just get sick and die, they get poisoned ." Mom Vanessa, an English teacher, also buys into the theories. She said: "Max was a very fit man who was in good health and yet he apparently just died suddenly on a sofa. "All I have is a death certificate from the Polish authorities that it was from natural causes, but no post-mortem was done so how can they tell that? "They are also refusing to release any paperwork about it to me because, absurdly, I don't have his written permission." Max was buried in Canterbury cemetery after his mother arranged to have his body flown home a week after his death. A post-mortem examination was carried out by a pathologist in east Kent, but Vanessa says that more than two months later she still does not know the result, or whether there will be an inquest. She added: "Apparently, he had not suffered any obvious physical injuries but he could have been slowly poisoned, which is why the results of toxicology tests from his post-mortem are so important. "He has a brother, Josh, and sister, Becky, who are both devastated, as are his two boys. We all want answers to this and I will continue to fight to get to the truth." The North East Kent coroner's office would only confirm the death was at the "very early" stages of investigation.
Return Of The Black-Eyed Ghost Child? Sinister Clip Emerges From Haunted Woods
Tom Buckmaster spent a spooky night in the infamous Cannock Chase Wood, Staffordshire, last week. It is said to be haunted by all manner of paranormal creatures, including black-eyed children. Legend has it they are apparitions of three children murdered by car mechanic Raymond Leslie Morris in the 1960s. In many cases the children approach people's houses asking entry into their home.If given permission, the spirits cause chaos in the house and settle there as a new resting ground. Speaking about Cannock Chase before the night on documentary Haunted Finder, Tom Buckmaster said: "It is the one of the most haunted places in the world. "Some say it holds a portal to the other side. "There has been so much unusual things sighted there, UFOs, aliens, strange creatures, the black-eyed child. "There has been hundreds and hundreds of these sightings.
"Slenderman has also been seen recently there."Last week, Tom returned to the exact place he caught the black-eyed ghost on film at Castle Ring. It is one year since he saw the spooky spectre. In the new footage, he and the team hear footsteps walking further into the woods and they head off in pursuit. He said: "I heard the same thing when I saw the black-eyed child last year.
"Obviously there have been lots of child spirit sightings here. "We are hearing a lot of weird noises and footsteps around us at the moment, it seems to be whenever we mention the black-eyed child." Suddenly Tom is startled as he hears a "voice" in his ear and the air becomes freezing. He said: "It was like something went down my left ear, it was so clear to me. "There's something circling us, you can feel something walking around. "You can hear it and there's that energy like I am being watched, I don't like it at all." Tom hasn't captured an image of the ghost on video again but he believes he now has more evidence that black-eyed children exist.
Uptick In Alien UFO Activity Around Yellowstone Amid Fears Of Apocalyptic Super Volcano Eruption
Alien hunters are reporting new uptick in alien UFO activity around Yellowstone geysers following reports that fears of a catastrophic super-eruption have spurred scientists to embark on a global initiative to monitor supervolcanoes closely for early warning signs. New footage uploaded to YouTube purportedly shows glowing UFO orbs hovering, circling, passing to and fro over the Old Faithful Geyser at the Yellowstone National Park. The latest alleged uptick in UFO activity over the Old Faithful Geyser would come as no surprise to UFO enthusiasts who have long claimed that the section of the Yellowstone National Park near the Old Faithful Geyser is the site of a major underground alien UFO base. Alien hunters also claim that periodic upsurges in the frequency of sightings of UFOs over the area signal heightened concerns by alien volcanologists inhabiting the alleged underground bases that increased volcanic activity could lead to a major eruption. The latest observation of increased UFO activity over Yellowstone comes after media reports of growing fears among experts that the Yellowstone supervolcano could erupt at any moment and threaten the survival of the global human population.
And in response to mounting concerns about the risk of an apocalyptic supervolcano eruption, scientists have reportedly established a global network, the Deep Earth Carbon Degassing (DECADE) initiative, to monitor supervolcanoes and prepare humanity for a major devastating eruption that scientists say is only a matter of time. But experts are concerned that if Yellowstone supervolcano were to erupt, we would have at best only a year’s warning, which would be grossly insufficient time to prepare for the resulting catastrophe. Notwithstanding, scientists from all over the world are involved in the DECADE initiative to monitor Yellowstone and other major threatening supervolcanoes around the world. Experts have estimated that there is a 5 to 10 percent chance of a super-eruption occurring before the end of this century. “We are deploying automated monitoring stations at volcanoes around the world to measure the gases they emit,” said DECADE team leader and University of New Mexico researcher Tobias Fisher. “We measure carbon dioxide, sulfur dioxide, and water vapor (steam), the major gases emitted by all volcanoes on the planet. In the hours before an eruption, we see consistent changes in the amount of carbon dioxide emitted relative to sulfur dioxide. Keeping an eye on the ratios globally via satellites and on-site monitoring helps us learn the precursors of volcanic eruptions.” And as human researchers commence the project to monitor the world’s supervolcanoes closely, aliens in UFOs, according to conspiracy theorists, are also stepping up monitoring activity, at least at the Yellowstone National Park. We may surmise from the recent reports of sightings of mysterious UFOs hovering and circling around the geothermal areas at the Yellowstone National Park, that alien volcanologists are as concerned as their human counterparts that if Yellowstone supervolcano were to erupt, we would have only a year’s warning. But based on the claim that aliens have far more advanced science and technology than humans, alien hunters have speculated that it is possible aliens are in possession of technological solutions to the imminent threat. But there is no consensus among UFO hunters that aliens would use their superior technology to help humans. feared that they may simply abandon their alleged underground bases and fly out to space to avoid a major eruption event. This is not the first time that alien and UFO hunters have raised alarm that mysterious UFOs seen buzzing around the Yellowstone area could indicate that aliens are monitoring the supervolcano for a possible eruption.
The news reported earlier in April that following the emergence of footage thought to show alien UFO activity over the Elk Refuge near Yellowstone, UFO hunters raised alarm that an uptick in UFO activity over Yellowstone in Wyoming could mean that aliens were preparing for a major eruption of the volcano. Alien hunters claimed that the alleged UFO activity was sighted in footage uploaded to YouTube on Thursday, April 28, by user Kat Martin2016. Although the YouTube user never suggested or implied that the footage shows an alien UFO, enthusiasts claimed that light seen passing in front of the live cam at the Elk Refuge in the middle of the night was, in fact, an alien UFO monitoring the volcano. According to UFO Sightings Daily’s Scott C. Waring, the light was an alien UFO drone deployed to conduct surveillance flights over Yellowstone to monitor its activity following renewed uptick of volcanic activity. The rumor-mongering and speculation about UFO activity supposedly linked with an imminent super-eruption event at Yellowstone only reflects general anxiety about the risk of a catastrophic eruption of the volcano. But the fears are being further exacerbated by other bizarre conspiracy theories, such as recent claims that the Illuminati cabal have hatched a supremely evil plan to artificially induce a major eruption if the volcano fails to erupt naturally at an appointed time. The news reported in April that fears of a plan to induce an eruption mounted following claims by some conspiracy theory blogs, including The Common Sense Show, that a clandestine group, allegedly linked to the Obama administration, was planning to induce a major eruption of the volcano by conducting “fracking-style” activity in the vicinity of the park.
Man Captures 'Ghost' Moving His Trousers In Spooky Footage - Has To Go To Bed With Light On
A man confessed he was thoroughly spooked when his trousers started to move of their own accord - with no logical explanation. Antony Dunleavy, 36, was alone in the house when he spotted one of the legs of his chinos moving on its own and began filming. He had been wearing them all day and thrown them over the sofa when he took them off. Antony shared the video with Mirror Online, explaining: "I checked for drafts. There were no windows open, no heating on, no fire on. "I was alone in the house. I'd normally be in the pub on a Friday night but I was stone cold sober - normally I'd put it down to too much beer!"
"The other leg is exactly the same length and it didn't move."
Antony says he does believe in ghosts and has always had a 'sixth sense', having heard scratching in his home before - but he insists this is the weirdest thing that's ever happened. He added: "As I ask if anyone is there it almost stops moving - it freaked me out!" Did he go to bed with the lights on? Well... "It didn't really scare me know as I do believe in the afterlife," he said, "but I did go to bed shortly after with the side lamp on!"
Some people think they’ve spotted Bigfoot on a live camera trained on an eagle’s nest in Michigan. The clip from a camera mounted on a tree near a state fish hatchery shows baby eaglets in the nest while a dark figure walking on two legs moves on the ground below.
The Detroit Free Press reports the clip was highlighted on the website of CarbonTV, which has partnered with the state to install the eagle cam. The company tells the Free Press the clip was captured in May. Idaho State University Professor Jeff Meldrum, who studies the legend of the never-confirmed man-ape-like creature, tells the newspaper the video is “interesting,” but “doesn’t offer much by way of compelling evidence.”
Mysterious Glowing UFO Spotted Over Moscow High-Rise
A massive ball of light, caught on camera as it floated over apartment buildings in Moscow, has captured the attention of UFO hunters across the globe. The incident took place on Monday evening in the Marfino District, and the footage was quickly posted to YouTube.
The strange ball of light appears to be hovering and moving up and down before disappearing behind the skyline. Residents of Moscow have been commenting on the video, saying that this is far from the first time they have seen a strange orb "You can see this UFO quite often in Moscow, I've seen it two times this year. They are even more frequent in other cities,” a user wrote. Other users, skeptical of the UFO claims, have asserted that it looks like a helicopter with a searchlight on.
In February, another video shot in Moscow appeared to show four unidentified lights flying in formation over the city. That footage also went viral as alien enthusiasts asserted that it was proof of extraterrestrial life. “There were four balls of light. A red one to the left, two white ones in the middle and a less bright one to the right. Sometimes the one on the right would disappear and come back. All together, they made the geometric shape of a rhombus," the person who uploaded the video said. Russian officials have not commented on Monday’s sighting.
Huge Mystery Sea Creature Washed Up At Pevensey Has Been Identified
Experts say they have identified the mysterious sea creature which washed up on a Pevensey beach. The 40ft remains were spotted this morning (Friday, October 7) at Normans Bay by Jez Asfour while out walking his dog.
Stephen Marsh, Operations Manager at British Divers Marine Rescue, said from examining the pictures it appears to be a Baleen Whale, a category of the mammals that includes Humpback and Blue Whales. He estimated that it has been dead for a few weeks, and observed that there seemed to be some rope on the carcass, so it could have died from becoming entangled.
He also warned members of the public not to let their dogs go near the remains. Mr Marsh said, “Do not allow dogs to look at or chew the carcass. Whales can carry diseases that jump species. Take you dog to the vets if it does.” Waste management officials are currently on site but are awaiting instructions from the authorities.
Alton Towers 'Ghost' Caught On Camera By Terrified Woman Who Believes Spectre Cursed The Theme park
A mum-of-five says she captured a ghostly figure during a hunt for paranormal activity at Alton Towers - and some people believe it's the apparition of a woman who cursed the theme park. Sharon Kearns, 46, took the eerie snap when she joined mediums and TV show Most Haunted's Brian Shepherd for an after-dark ghost walk. They were shocked when she checked the camera after the hunt and saw a figure that, she says, looks like a lady wearing a long gown. It has sparked theories that it was the ghost of an old beggar woman who put a hex on the land in 1821. Sharon, from Liverpool, said: "They were all shocked. No one else had caught anything like mine. It caused a stir around those who saw it. They all said it was very spooky and a good catch. "It looks like a lady with a long gown on. Lots of people are saying that. Lots of people can see what I see. "When I look at that picture I think 'hang on a minute, maybe there could be' [something supernatural out there].
"You are a sceptic until you see that [the picture] and then you are like 'oh my God'. After seeing that [I think differently] as I know it's my own picture. I'm now a lot less sceptical and believe it now. "I've not had any other experiences myself but I would like to. Though I think I would be quite scared, I would love to make me fully believe." Legend has it that in 1821, the 15th Earl of Shrewsbury Charles Talbot was returning home one winter's night when an old lady stood in his stagecoach's path. Angry that she had held him up, he apparently shouted at her to move but she explained she was homeless cold and hungry. When he refused to help her, the story says she placed a curse on him and his family and said that for every branch that falls from a nearby oak tree, one of his family will die. It is said that when a storm broke a branch that night, a member fell ill and died. To this day the tree has visible chains on it in the theme park grounds.
Is a big cat on the prowl in Lincolnshire? A woman believes the bodies of two mutilated hares in her garden and two very large paw prints on her window may be evidence of such a big cat on the prowl.
Several sightings of big cats have been reported across Lincolnshire over recent weeks including in Mablethorpe, Toynton All Saints, near Spilsby, and Partney. Jacqui Greenfield says her family were 'freaked out' after they spotted the paw prints on a window of one their outbuildings at their remote home in Skellingthorpe.
They then found the bodies of two hares on their lawn later that day. Jacqui said: "I have never seen a cat, dog or fox anywhere even near our property. It's just very strange. "I don't really understand it. I don't know what else it could be?" The mother of four's husband was the first person to spot the mysterious smudges on the window of the outbuilding and thought they had been left there by window cleaners. But when Jacqui inspected them more closely, she realised that they didn't look like hand prints. The prints are have a span slightly smaller than the size of Jacqui's hand, but they had paw prints where the ball of the hand would be, and they were on the lower half of the glass doors. Later that day, they found the two hares dead on their lawn.
She told the Lincolnshire Echo: "The night before we had watched the hares. My kids were saying, look there's a mummy and a baby. "It was those two rabbits that were dead on the lawn the next day. "If you look at their bodies they've been pecked by crows, but it wouldn't have been crows that killed them." Jacqui says her and her four daughters have been left nervous by the strange events.
"My daughters were actually a little bit freaked out and nervous," she said. "We would go out at night and sit on the patio but since then I've been a bit wary. We look around and think, what is out there."
