MoD 'hid big cat sightings' in UK
The body of a fearsome puma-like animal is said to be hidden in a top security vault at an RAF base.
Hundreds of big cat sightings have been recorded over the years — from the Beast of Bodmin in Cornwall to the Surrey Puma. The Government's environment department Defra insists evidence is "unsubstantiated".
But Rick Minter, author of Big Cats: Facing Britain's Wild Predators, claims staff at RAF Fylingdales, North Yorks, saw the body of the "puma".
He likens it to the US government's alleged cover-up of an alien in Roswell, New Mexico, in 1947. He writes: "It is at RAF Fylingdales that we have Britain's Roswell moment on big cats.
"Retired staff apparently talked about a 'body on the table' and a witness outside the base reported a puma-like creature being trundled off in the scoop-arm of a tractor."
In June 2004, a local paper reported that a large cat "the length of a sheep" was killed on the Pickering to Whitby road near RAF Fylingdales.
Mark Fraser, of Big Cats in Britain, which investigates sightings, said: "What is the cover-up here? The Holy Grail in these investigations is a body. If the MoD have a body, we'd like to know about it."
A series of photos taken in Cornwall claim to show the Beast of Bodmin. In 1983, the Beast of Exmoor was blamed for the deaths of 100 sheep near South Molton. - thesun
Severed Leg Washes Ashore: Florida Police Investigate Mysterious Limb
Authorities in Florida are searching for answers after a clean-shaven, severed leg mysteriously washed ashore early Tuesday morning.
A Canadian family vacationing in the St. Petersburg area discovered the floating limb around 7:40 a.m. when it floated up on their rented beachfront property, the St. Petersbug Times reports.
According to the newspaper:
The leg had no tattoos, no distinct marks or scars. There were no other signs of trauma, except for some mysterious marks around the upper thigh. It was dotted with seaweed and other debris when it was found.
Police are awaiting further testing from the Medical Examiner's office and checking missing persons reports from several nearby counties in hopes of identifying the victim.
"We don't think the leg's been in the water that long. Our best judgment at this point would be a day or two," St. Petersburg Police Dept. spokesman Mike Puetz told told ABC Action News.
"Right now it's obviously a very suspicious set of circumstances. We're stopping a little bit short of calling it a homicide, at this point, until we get some more details" Puetz said.
Police request that anyone with any information reach out to the TIP line at 727-892-5000. - THP

(unedited) - It was either wednesday or thursday early at night, no later than 9:00 pm. I recall the moon was full or close to it since there was rather abundant light in the forrest. I was sitting on the ground smoking a cigarette and staring into the woods when suddenly a creature that was paper white, no taller than 4 ft from the floor, naked, sexless, no toes, only 4 digits in each hand, these being long with round ends; no nails. The head seemed a bit too big for the torax and limbs and it was sort of egg-shaped, no lips nor visible teeth in the mouth, no nose, and the eyes were pitch black (or other very dark color) which reflected no light. This being came from within the woods' nightly shade and came to more or less 7 feet from me. I just stared at it, petrified in fear, for no longer than 45 seconds during which the creature stared back into my eyes. It turned it's head from side to side a few times and then turned around and walked back into the darkness of the woods in the same direction from which it came. a few seconds afterwards I reacted in complete panic, yelled once and rushed back into the cabin where I was staying at with some friends (which were all drunk at the moment). I rushed into my bedroom and didn't mention the event to them for I knew the wouldn't believe me.
Angler snares deadly fish that killed two men by biting off their testicles
An intrepid British angler today told how he snared a predator which kills men - by biting off their testicles.
Fearless Jeremy Wade, 53, spent weeks hunting for the fish in remote Papua New Guinea after locals reported a mysterious beast which was castrating young fishermen.
He finally unmasked the perpetrator as the Pacu fish - known locally as ‘The Ball Cutter’ - and managed to catch one in his small wooden fishing boat.
Mr Wade wrestled the 40lb monster on to the floor of his boat and opened its snapping jaws with his naked hands - to discover a jaw-dropping array of human-style teeth.
The Ball Cutter boasts an impressive set of man-like molars, which tear off the testicles of unwitting hunters, leaving them to bleed to death.
Mr Wade, from Bath, Somerset, told how he reeled in the Ball Cutter as part of his new series of River Monsters, aired on ITV next week.
He said: 'I had heard of a couple of fishermen in Papua New Guinea who had been castrated by something in the water.
'The bleeding was so severe that they died. The locals told me that this thing was like a human in the water, biting at the testicles of fishermen. They didn’t know what it was.
'It is a hot and dirty area so the people would often go to the water with their children to wash but obviously they were very worried about this thing in the water.
'Amazingly, these things are quite elusive so we had to be patient catching one. We put a line into the water and waited for it to bite.
'When I reeled it in, it had this mouth which was surprisingly human-like, it is almost like they have teeth specially made for crushing.
'They are like human molars and the fish have powerful jaw muscles. They are very deep bodied and solid like a carp, with strong muscles.'
At least two fishermen have bled to death after being bitten by the beast although Jeremy believes they were 'pretty unlucky' as it is quite shy.
Pacu fish are usually found in the Amazon, where they need their teeth to crack into the tough cases of nuts and seeds.
The previously vegetarian fish were introduced to Papua New Guinea 15 years ago to increase stocks.
They quickly used their special technique to chomp meat due to a lack of suitable vegetation in the waters - making short work of human testicles.
Former biology teacher Jeremy luckily just sustained a small nick to his knuckles during his encounter with the Ball Cutter, despite wearing just shorts and a T-shirt.
The angler of 40 years said: 'It is about going in to these situations with the right information to know what you are dealing with.
'It is all about prevention. But there is this fear running through you. As long as I know what I am about to face and we have all of the precautions then I am happy.
'The fish was remarkably muscular, it was kicking so hard to get away from me but I wasn’t really injured.'
Jeremy spent 14 weeks travelling around the world - from Australia to Suriname in South America - to film his third series of his hit show this year.
He captured a total of seven beasts, including an electric eel which stopped human hearts in Brazil, before releasing them back into the wild.
His team consisted of just four others, plus a local guide who would show them where to find the monsters.
River Monsters Series Three - which features seven parts - will begin on ITV1 at 7.30 on January 3. The fourth series is currently in production. - dailymail

More BS....supernatural flock of birds mourn Kim Jong-Il
As if the synchronized weeping and lachrymose snowstorms weren't enough, North Korean state news is now reporting that divinely anointed flocks of magpies have been flocking to a monument of Kim Jong-Il's father, Kim Il-sung. On December 18, a few dozen magpies landed near a memorial statue in Unsan county and just would not leave.
According to The Telegraph, "Locals claimed the magpies would not fly away even when the villagers approached them or shone torches into the trees." Omens, they shit on your car. If I ever get my own personality cult, I plan on penning a 40-chapter treatise on how rainbows are merely God's way of honoring my Pink Floyd LP collection.
