|Another panther Sighting In Zana
|Over the past few weeks, I have received several Black Panther
Sighting reports. Several of those reports coming from the same area,
Zana, located between Daviston and New Site on Highway 22
A man I have known for sometime reported seeing a large black panther crossing the road in
Zana only a few weeks ago. He and some friends were traveling on Alabama Highway 22 near
the guard rail area of Zana, a place I call the swamp. He said the panther came running from the
woods very low to the ground as a normal cat would run.
The sighting lasted only a few seconds but he got a very good look at the cat with the headlights of his truck. It was plain to see its
long tail stretched out behind it . This is possibly a trail for these panthers as this is the 3rd sighting reported to me near the guard
rails. He also added a hunter friend of his reported seeing one in a green field on their hunting club 3 years ago.
This is an 18 foot tall statue of Bigfoot! It is located in Rohnert Park, California. There is a 100
mile stretch of highway named, "The Bigfoot Scenic Biway". It is named that because there
have been more reported sightings of Bigfoot along this highway than any other road in the
United Sates! In the article i found concerning this , it stated....'The Bigfoot Scenic Biway lies
within and goes through government owned and protected lands where Bigfoot and other
endangered species can be seen or observed. The Bigfoot Scenic Biway is recognized by the
U.S. Congress and by the Federal Highway Administration. Designated 2001.'

|New Signs Of Bigfoot ?
(My New Theory )
|I know from first hand experience that Bigfoot doesn't like the forests being
logged. Over the past week or so I have noticed something very unusual in an
area that is being logged. And this area of wood land is deep in a very hot
spot of old & recent Sasquatch Sightings!
I try to keep a check on all the areas near me where Sasquatch has been
reportedly seen. I try to check the hot spots as well as other areas that have
had no reports at all. Never know when a bent or broken tree will turn up.
A couple of weekends ago I went to a place where a possible Bigfoot had been
seen 3 or 4 times early in the mornings, around daybreak. To my, and to
Bigfoots disappointment, massive logging had just started here.
In the photo at the left is the yard of an old home place where a Bigfoot looking
creature had been reported to me as crossing the road here around daylight.
Loaded trailers of wood now sit where the yard once was
This was the second Sunday in a row that I drove along this road looking for Bigfoot signs. They were there, the signs I
mean. About 2 weeks ago I drove along this road through an area that was cut about a year ago and as I crossed a hill the
road was blocked with a large tree in the road. I turned around and went back the way I had came. As I did, I began
noticing there were several trees partially in the road. Some trees I could tell had been moved by the loggers so they
could get to the cutting areas.
A week later I returned to see what all had been cut and I noticed there were more trees in the road, more trees in places
they hadn't been were now pulled from the road way. Then it dawned on me...something was pulling these trees in the
road, possibly to BLOCK the road where the loggers couldn't haul the trees away! Was Bigfoot doing this?
Was he trying to stop the trucks? Block the road in the only way he could think of? It is possible. Below are photos of
trees I made Sunday afternoon and Monday. (I had to stop making pictures Sunday as so may 4 wheelers were racing up
and down the road)

limb. Limb had to be carried here, there is
no tree on the right side of road.

Not only does sasquatch loose
their homes with logging, but
all the creatures of the forest
|This is my opinion of what all these trees blocking the dirt road is. I believe Sasquatch is doing all it can to deter logging
and the destruction of its homes and hunting grounds. Something is putting the trees in the road and i am certain it is not
the loggers. On Tuesday night, 9-25-12, a friend and myself went to a location near this area around 11 PM to sit and
listen for sounds or maybe a sighting of Bigfoot. We sat there only a few minutes rather than hours as we sometimes do.
The reason was it was deathly quite. No crickets, no birds, no coyotes in the distance. We felt extremely uneasy as if
something, or maybe someone was watching us. It was just too quite! I feel the tension in the air was from the anger of
Bigfoot. Perhaps it was his eyes who were watching us angrily. And as we left quickly and drove down the long dirt road
homeward, i wondered just how many sets of eyes gazed upon us tonight. What was going through their minds and
what were their intentions?
Bigfoot Encounters Continue At Mt. Cheaha
|Alabama's Highest Point
It was December of 2010, That a long trail of Bigfoot foot prints were discovered
by hikers along one of the hiking trails at Mt. Cheaha. This area of Alabama has
been quite well known for occasional Bigfoot sightings over the years. Not far
from here in the small town of Waldo, in the 1970s & 80s was a lounge named
The Bigfoot Lounge. I was told it was named that for the many Bigfoot sightings
in that area. A man connected with Alabama law enforcement told me that on
one particular mountain near Talladega, a Bigfoot or a family of them had lived
there for as long as he could remember. He claimed there was always several
sightings a year from mostly hunters. Sometime someone driving
the highway would spot one. Waldo, Talladega, and Mt. Cheaha are all located close to each other and all are in, or
boundry the Talladega National Forest.
Recently I received an email from yet another camper who has encountered the sounds,,, the screams of Bigfoot at night.
They were camping at one of the camp grounds there and heard the unmistakable screams that are associated with
Sasquatch. This was last June.
I plan a trip to Mt. Cheaha very soon and although I will not be able to hike and search the woods, i will take close notice
of anything that may be visible from the road.
|Bigfoot Video In Provo, Utah
Around the first of November 2012, a group of campers made what is believed to be a
genuine video of Bigfoot. The video is short, but of good quality. I have watched the
video several times on youtube.com. It certainly looks real to me to a point. If you'd like
to see the video go to www.youtube.com , and click in 'Provo, Utah Bigfoot' . A couple
or so clips will come up. (The link I placed on here last night is not working for some
reason). Is it real, you watch and decide.
For over 40 years I have researched and looked for this elusive creature. Literally
hundreds of days ands nights I have sat in the woods, in cemeteries, along dirt roads,
in fields and pastures, even in my front yard many years ago. Most of those nights a
trusted friend was with me. Almost anywhere nearby that we heard of a sighting, we
were there as soon as possible. We tried to endure all the weather Alabama could dish
out. Many times it paid off. At times we heard something, and on some rare occasions
we saw something. We have come very close to these creatures. Seen things you
wouldn't believe if I put it on here. I know many times they saw us and we never had a
clue they were watching us. I wonder how many times they watched us while we were
looking for them? Then I think sometimes they intensionally tried to scare us. Believe
me, if they were trying to scare us, they did! But in all the field trips we have made so
far, there were only 2 times I felt we might be in danger. Overall, it is my opinion, they
are almost human. A pre-human primate, for lack of a better term. . What ever they
are, I will call them a friend. I like the illustration and would hope someday it will become
a real photograph.
I think I'll call the drawing, 'A Friend Yet To Meet'.

|Dr. Melba Ketchum, Bigfoot DNA
|The following article is my thoughts and opinions on Dr. Melba Ketchums extensive research
and work she and her staff have completed on Bigfoot DNA.
Dr. Melba Ketchum
I personally had never heard of Dr. Ketchum or her Bigfoot DNA work until a few weeks ago when a
fellow Alabama Bigfoot Society member told me of her. He had come across her work while Internet
surfing 'Bigfoot'. Since that time I have had the pleasure to listen to her on Coast To Coast Am,
(late night radio talk show) with George Knapp, on two different occasions . And also an interview
on another radio show that is on youtube.com.
First I would like to relate what happened to me only a few days ago. A person I have known many years, stumbled across
my website. I had never mentioned to them that i had one. And a paranormal one at that. Here in Alabama you have to be
careful who you mention Bigfoot, ghosts, UFO, or anything paranormal to. Mention it to the wrong person and you'll be
labeled crazy, laughed at, ridiculed and made fun of, for the remainder of your life. . Oh, how the close minded, or ignorant
people as I call them, love to ridicule! But after reading some of this site they called a family member and told them to
check it out. They both are very into and interested in the paranormal. Both were surprised I had a paranormal site. 'He's
just a simple ole country boy..' they both mused, who'd ever thought Jim was so big into Bigfoot and the such.
To me and many men here in the south, being labeled a 'simple, good ole country boy' is about the highest compliment
you can get! It is to me anyway! When your a simple, good ole country boy, you are an honest and sincere person, a
person who's word can be taken, a person who doesn't think they are better than any one else.
Now back to Dr. Ketchum,,, this is somewhat how she came across to me on the radio. (Not simple, ole or country), but a
very sincere, honest person who's word can be taken.
Dr. Ketchums analysis of her Bigfoot DNA findings called 'Novel North American Hominin' was suppose to be published
but for some reason or reasons the journal that was suppose to publish it declined to do so. This was much the topic of
her radio interview on Sunday, Feb. 17, 2013...why didn't they publish it... after all, they had told her they would.
Well here's my opinion on why the journal didn't published it....
Greed, jealousy, and money.
No matter what you research and find out or learn about Bigfoot, there's always someone telling you how completely
wrong you are. Everyone wants to be the utmost authority on them. As far as i know there is not one in captivity being
studied. So the theories we serious researchers come up with are the conclusions we make after many long hours in the
field. That's the way it is with us anyway. Many of the 'noted' Bigfoot people are very greedy in wanting everything they
say to be gospel. Face it, it just doesn't always work out that way. The jealousy... again there are those who wish they'd
came up with her findings. They want to be in the spot light. And the money part. To me this is the main problem not only
with Bigfoot but with everything. Bigfoot is a big money maker right now. There are countless Bigfoot shows on TV so
that means big money for some one. The people on the shows, the creators of the shows and the advertisers. Why do you
think so many networks have Bigfoot shows? It is what the public is interested in this week and that means viewers, and
that mean money to advertisers. To the people with museums and other attractions that bring in Bigfoot dollars, they
don't want this mystery solved. It could be a dent in profits. Oh and the big money book deals with publishers. I don't
mean like the little booklets i have done to help finance research and website costs, I mean the thousands of dollars book
deals lots of big name bigfoot people have and will be getting in the future.
Dr. Ketchums analysis is available through download for a fee. You can click in her name and search on the Internet for it.
I believe Dr. Ketchum and her findings. There were many things she said that I know to be true from investigating the

|Bigfoot Sighting In Horseshoe Bend National Military Park
The afternoon of Wednesday July 24, 2013, for a while in parts of Tallapoosa County, was the sight of severe storms
once again. I was driving west on Highway 22 and in all places to be, was in the middle of Zana, when I drove into the
storm. Winds were very high and several trees were up rooted in the surrounding area. It seemed as the wind came from
all directions and the rain was so heavy, I had to pull off the road for some time to ride out the storm.
Later when I finally returned home this evening, I received a report of a Bigfoot Sighting in Horseshoe Bend National
Military Park. The weather had also been very bad there as a tree was blown across the road on County Road 79 just as
you enter the Park.
The Bigfoot was seen around 3:30 PM. It was on the opposite side of Hwy. 49 from the museum. The witness said it was
not far into the woods, was 7 to 8 feet tall, reddish brown and you could tell it was wet, soaked. The area of this land
belongs to the park, but is not normally used by visitors there. It was seen in an access road. I plan to go there
tomorrow and look for tracks, if I receive permission by park officials. And if it can possibly hold off raining a few hours
here. If rains fall tonight as I expect, there will be no need searching.
This area has been soaked for some time now as every day, tremendous rains fall here. Usually this time of year we are
very dry. Drought conditions actually, but not this year!
|Two More Additional Bigfoot Sightings At Horseshoe Bend !
It seems the month of July was an active time for Sasquatch to be moving around in
the Horseshoe Bend Park near New Site, Alabama. We have received 3 reports, all
from different people and different times of day. The first report was early in the
month. A woman and her son were visiting the park and were near the village area. In
the distance they noticed movement in a stand of trees. Upon further and closer
observation, they could see a large hairy creature walking on two legs moving in and
out of the trees. They watched it for some time as it moved deeper into the forest and
finally out of sight.
The second sighting is the one listed above on July 24.

The third sighting comes from a truck driver who passes through the Park nightly on a delivery run. His sighting was on the
Dadeville side of the river and near the Park entrance-exit sign. The sighting was somewhat unnerving and he isn't ready to
go into detail about the sighting at this time. He says he never saw anything like the creature which he did describe as
being HUGE, covered in long matted hair and standing on two legs. When he becomes more comfortable with the sighting,
we'll have the details here.

|Bigfoot Sighted Near Daviston, Alabama ! Sept. 1. 2013
|Bigfoot Seen Crossing Highway 22 ! October 10, 2013
If you have read this site, you know of Zana. Zana is a piece of real estate that lies between Daviston and New Site,
Alabama. It is a supernatural place ! ...to say the least. I'll get an article of what i know about Zana, on here soon. Last night
I received another Bigfoot sighting report from Zana (10-10-13). This is an area in Tallapoosa County where numerous
sightings have been reported to me. Not only Bigfoot sightings, but ghosts and other paranormal things as well! The
sighting was made at 7:05 PM. It was dark now that the days are getting shorter. The witness had been to New Site and
was returning home. They had just passed Chappell Road and was heading east on Hwy. 22. This is the area I sometimes
refer to as the Straight away. It is about 1 mile in length.
As you approach the end of the Straight Away going east, you'll see a large yellow road sign. It is a diamond shaped, left
turn curve sign. And on Thursday night a Bigfoot walked in front of the sign as the witness saw him or her very well! As
with all road signs, this one too is reflective. The car's headlights made the sign appear lighted,,, well lighted. According to
the witness the head and shoulders were extremely visible and plain with the curve sign providing light. The creature took
about 3 steps to cross the highway. It came from the drivers right and walked to the left. As it reached the edge of the
highway, it faded into the right of way and disappeared into the thick, dark woods.
I am still getting all the details on the sighting. The witness says they were startled and shocked at seeing one, and
seeing one so plainly! As the Bigfoot passed the sign, the witness says they could actually see the long hair on the back
of its head and shoulders flowing, moving! They claim a facial outline was quite plain.
I and the witness have been to the location of this sighting and have measured the sign for the height of
the Sasquatch. In our conservative opinion, the creature stood a good Nine feet tall ! This area, the Straight Away, has
been a location of numerous sightings over the years and many times, it has been a huge creature reported. Our team
will be investigating this sighting and area in the coming days..... and nights.
|Another Encounter At The Horseshoe!
Over the long, hot, lazy, Dog Days Of Summer, sighting reports to us slowed, but with the cooling nip of Fall in full swing
and winter quickly approaching, business has picked up! On Sunday morning, Oct. 20, 2013, around 11:30 AM, rock
tapings were heard by two of our members and one of the members 9 yr. old grandson, Jacob. The trio, standing under
the pavilion that over looks the village area decided to do an experimental taping. (There has been several Bigfoot
sighting reports to us over the summer stemming from the park). Soon, after a few moments of taping themselves, came a
reply from the densely wooded area behind the pavilion.
As they continued their experimental 'call', the replies they were getting grew closer and closer. The final taps were so
close and so loud according to an email sent to me by Jacob, 'That we should have been able to see it!' The first return
taps were a long way off and faint . The sound of the taps becoming louder moved nearer very swiftly. Too fast for a
human to run through the thick woods.
At this point they decided it was time to return to their car.... they'd seen no other people, and no other vehicles in this area
of the park. Who or 'what' was returning the taping call was a little to o close for comfort.

|The First Week Of November Brings A Bigfoot Sighting
In Clay County
Ashland and Lineville are the two major towns in Clay County, Alabama. Both are located along Alabama Highway 9. Last
week, (the first week of the month), a large Bigfoot was witnessed by a local resident in a location between the 2 towns.
The sighting was made in their back yard while doing some afternoon yard work. According to what we've been told, the
person has a large wooded area behind their home. While working they thought they noticed some movement along the
edge of the forest out of the corner of their eye. As anyone does, they too glanced to the direction of the movement. To
their surprise and shock, a large Bigfoot was walking next to the trees. It was a deep brown color and walked slightly
slumped forward. It apparently paid the land owner no attention as it journeyed onward. The landowner was extremely
frightened and ran into the safety of their home, although they say the Bigfoot showed no hostilities.
