Strange Creatures in America

Show Archive
Date: Monday - April 23, 2007
Host: George Noory
Guests: Loren Coleman, Paul L. Williams

Author and cryptozoologist Loren Coleman discussed his mission to uncover intriguing phenomena that exist in the U.S. He shared accounts on such topics as the Dover Demon, the Lake Champlain monster, the Mad Gasser of Mattoon, alligators in the sewers, giant snakes and phantom clowns. He also noted the groundbreaking work of Charles Fort, an American writer who first documented anomalous phenomena back in the early part of the 20th century.

The Dover Demon was the name given to a strange creature sighted by several credible witnesses in Dover, MA over a 25-hour period in April of 1977. It was described as being orange-colored, about 4 and a half feet tall and having a large head shaped like a watermelon. Aside from these sightings, there were no further reports of the being, which Coleman declared to be a "major mystery." For more, see this Cryptomundo entry.

A serpentine "monster" up to 25 ft. in length has been seen in Lake Champlain, he reported, and Sandra Mansi's photo is considered to be one of the best images of it. Coleman suspects there is a small breeding population in Lake Champlain of what could be an undocumented type of giant seal.

Terrorism Update

First half-hour guest, journalist Paul Williams shared an update on the threat of nuclear terrorism. He believes that the recent al-Qaeda threat to the U.K. applies even more so to the U.S. He also said that according to his sources (mercenaries recently convening in Las Vegas), bin Laden is living in a heavily fortressed area in the Valley of Dir, in Pakistan.
