Most cryptozoology enthusiasts are familiar with Mothman— the humanoid beast said to be a herald of impending doom. But did you know that Russia is home to a nearly identical creature?
On April 26th, 1986 a horrific nuclear accident occurred at the Chernobyl Power Plant. Reactor Number 4 became catastrophically unstable after employees performed a simulative power outage safety test. A disastrous series of events unfolded which caused an uncontrollable chain reaction. Colossal amounts of energy were released causing the activator core to explode. For nine days, fire consumed the devastated structure and spewed out astronomical levels of radioactive contaminants. Humanity felt the dire implications of a fission calamity. Dozens of first responders agonizingly perished from radiation exposure, cancer rates skyrocketed and babies were born with appalling birth defects. Pripyat, a once-thriving city, had become an uninhabitable toxic wasteland and would remain so for the next twenty-thousand years.
Some believe residents had been pre-warned of the dreadful fallout. In the weeks preceding Chernobyl’s cataclysmic incident, a series of anomalous episodes took place. Locals who lived in close proximity to the eventual ‘exclusion zone’ repeatedly encountered a mysterious creature. Witnesses described its appearance as resembling a giant mutilated headless man with piercing red eyes. Petrified onlookers dubbed the curious aerial fiend The Blackbird of Chernobyl. Those who happened upon the sinister entity suffered from haunting nightmares and menacing phone calls. Citizens began to live in constant crippling fear that they may be the next victim to behold this nefarious figure. An abysmal winged monster was terrorizing the formerly quaint town.Continue reading →
In the world of ufology, fewer topics are more bone-chilling than cattle mutilations.Hundreds of bovines have been discovered dead under bizarre and unusual circumstances throughout the decades. Spontaneous surgeries are performed with meticulous skill. Organs are selectively extracted with laser-like precision. All blood is completely drained from the body. Bones are shattered as if something dropped the casualty from extreme heights. A perfectly formed circle surrounds the remains and abnormally high levels of radiation are present. Unfortunately, it appears other mammals are not immune to this sickening fate. Much like our cow counterparts, humans have caught the eye of whatever sinister force is responsible for such horrifying carnage. Numerous accounts have been studied and repeatedly show a sinister agenda at work.
The Guarapiranga Case
In 1988 one of the phenomena’s most appalling cases occurred in southern Brazil. At the Guarapiranga Reservoir, an utterly grotesque scene unfolded after a man’s ravaged body surfaced. Although deceased for several days, vultures and insects completely avoided the corpse. There was not any post-mortem odor which is usually present upon decay. In fact, the cadaver did not show any signs of decomposition whatsoever. Several perfectly symmetrical holes had been carved from the flesh. His eyes, ears, lips and tongue were taken out with astonishing expertise. Each smooth cut appeared cauterized and investigators did not observe any rough or jagged edges. Continue reading →
Artwork has been created by human beings for thousands of years. Long before written language, drawings were used to chronicle history. One particularly intriguing aspect of ufology is a repeated presence of bizarre crafts and strange creatures throughout numerous depictions. Ancient civilizations with no contact or communication amongst themselves often illustrated eerily similar subjects: UFOs and extraterrestrials. Did our ancestors witness physical phenomena which they deemed worthy of documenting for future generations? That conclusion is for the observer to decide.
