The Scourge Of Braxton

Somebody get ahold of Ry Rivard (DA columnist and semi-inactive blogger), because I've got some news for him: His home in Braxton County, WV, might be getting an unexpected visitor.

Loren Coleman of Cryptomundo has posted a photograph of a creature that might just rival Point Pleasant's Mothman. Captured by a motion-activated wildlife camera about a week ago near a home in Braxton, the "Braxton Beast" appears to be an animal of some sort in the Bigfoot mold. What makes this bizarre is that two other similar sightings happened previously; one in 1952, the other in 1960.

Before you ask, no, I don't give a lot of credit to Bigfoot and Loch Ness sightings. Leave the overblown conspiracy theories to the liberals, right? But my journalistic curiosity demands that I at least take a look. The link above has a picture (I think it's just a leaf, but see for yourself) as well as a ton of comments from readers discussing the whole thing. Check it out.

By the way, who knew that there were blogs dedicated to this kind of thing? You learn something new every day.
