Human foot washes ashore on Vancouver Island, Canada

Human Foot Washes Up On Vancouver Island

The following story, about a human foot washing up on the beach of Vancouver Island, is weird, but also has a personal element of weirdness for me. More about that in a bit. But stories like this always catch my attention. So apparently, including this most recent foot, 13 feet have washed up on the […]

Guilty Pleasures: Survivorman Bigfoot

I really hate to include Survivorman Bigfoot in my guilty pleasures category, mainly because unlike the other shows that I have lumped into this category, Survivorman Bigfoot is actually very well-done. The concept is simple: survival expert Les Stroud strikes out into the wilderness, sometimes accompanied by local Bigfoot researchers, in order to find proof […]

Sasquatch filmed in Squamish

Squamish Sasquatch on Video?

An interesting video has been making the rounds of late, allegedly showing a Sasquatch walking on a snowy mountain peak in Squamish, B.C. I’m not usually intrigued by “blobsquatch” videos like this, but there are a few factors that make this one a bit more interesting than most. First of all, the video was shot by a […]

Scientist Says Yeti DNA is from Ancient Polar Bear

Over the past few years, I’ve lobbed a lot of criticism to the Squatchers over on the Finding Bigfoot television show, mainly for attributing every downed tree, weird howl and snapped twig to Sasquatch. I understand that if these creatures exist, then they would probably pull down an occasional tree, make an odd howl here […]

Bigfoot Filmed By Hikers in the Canadian Wilderness

It’s blobsquatch time again! Another video has been uploaded to YouTube, allegedly showing the big hairy fella. But is this Bigfoot? Or just a man in an ape costume? This is a bit better than most blobsquatch videos, in that you can clearly see that this is a humanoid figure as opposed, to say, a […]

Mystery Poop Falls in Backyard in Canada

Anyone with even a passing interest in the unexplained or paranormal is aware of strange falls from the sky, the phenomenon where things fall from the sky that really shouldn’t. Charles Fort, the famous author and collector of odd stories (and where we get the term “Fortean” from) cataloged numerous stories of strange falls, including fish, […]

Writers Wanted – Paranormal, Supernatural & Unexplained

Whether you are new here or a regular reader of The Occult Section, you’ve no doubt noticed our horrifically brightly colored “Writers Wanted” sign in the sidebar over there to your right. We have some very talented writers here at The Occult Section, but we’re looking to add a few more regular writers to our […]

Bigfoot Hunter Claims He Was Looking for Sasquatch, Not Marijuana

If teenagers planted marijuana plants in the woods, would Bigfoot hunters accidentally stumble upon them? Ok, so it’s not the greatest of philosophical questions, but it forms the crux of today’s story, as a supposed Bigfoot hunter is caught skulking around an alleged pot farm in the forest. So is he a Bigfoot hunter who […]

Retired Air Force Officer Says Newfoundland UFO Incident Was Real

I always find myself on the fence about retired military personnel who come out in their twilight years and make claims that UFOs are real and that the government has aliens or alien bodies. On the one hand, it makes sense. I mean, what do they have to lose? They can’t get fired. They aren’t […]
