I am following a variety of developing stories.
There are sightings of a Florida panther (track above) very much out of its range being seen around Sarasota, Florida.
Meanwhile, an escaped Mexican wolf is safely back in captivity in Minnesota.
Elsewhere, on the wolf front, Cryptomundo correspondent Peder Knudsen writes in with news of sightings of a wolf in Denmark. (Yes, please, no jokes about “Peder and the wolf.”)
Knudsen writes: “One witness saw it on Sunday [Feb. 14, 2010] in Jels in Haderslev Sønderjylland and another witness saw it on Monday [Feb. 15, 2010] also in Sønderjylland. Three people saw one last year in Voins; a family from Øster Sottrup heard a howl in the night at 4 o’clock. Next morning they found tracks.”
Over 20 people, as of the 17th, reportedly have seen the wolf in Denmark.
It has been almost 200 years since the last wolf was shot there in 1813.
Meanwhile, in New England, word has reached me that that a Windigo (an Eastern Bigfoot) road crossing sighting occurred during the second week of February.
Tracks appear to have been found. For fear of ridicule, the eyewitnesses wish to take a low-key approach. I am following up on this report and will get back to you with details after some further investigations occur over the next few days.
