Morton Ridge road incident 09/17/2019.

On September 18 2019, I received an Email concerning what looked like a bigfoot on Morton Ridge Rd in Trimble county, KY where the witness almost hit with his vehicle. This took place on the evening of September 17 2019. I contacted the witness and we agreed to meet on the 23rd at the sighting location.

At 11:30 am I met with the witness near the location. After a brief introduction, we proceeded to the location of the incident. The location isn't exactly on Morton Ridge but at the end where
Wises Landing road begins, Immediately the witness begins to tell me what occurred the evening of  09/17/2019.

Witness:  It was a little after 9pm I was traveling west on Morton Ridge Rd. As I came to the end where it starts going down hill onto Wises landing rd., this thing steps out onto the road. At first I thought it was a person. As the headlights came fully upon it this thing, it stops in the center of the road. That's when I came to a full stop  It appeared to be struggling  to look into my direction thru the headlights, As I watched, it then continued across the road and on down the hill.  After getting home I remembered reading about some stories here in the county and started looking online and found your Blog then Emailed you.

During the interview we recreated the events while he was in his vehicle and did a height comparison of the creature he saw. I measured it to stand around 7 foot and around 3 1/2 feet wide at the shoulders The witness described the creature as reddish in color and that it stood and walked up right as a man. The witness also stated that he has drove this route for several years at night and has never seen anything like it before.   Upon investigating the area, I found no visible signs of fresh tracks, the substrate was hard and dry due to the drought conditions also the path of the creature described by the witness moved from north to south  along a power line brake. The area is hilly and forested. Upon further investigation of the area my wife and myself found an old trackway that appeared it to be traveled extensively the prints measured 16 1/2 inches long. I will conduct several investigations in the area and hope to do some weekend expeditions on site. The area has a long history of sightings. The witness is sincere in what he reported. The witness did not want to be video taped or have his name made public but would be available for more questions.

Was Grendel in the poem Beowulf a possiable Sasquatch or Yeti

Recently while attending a speaking engagement, one of the attendees approached me with a question.  In the epic Beowulf do you think Grendel may be a bigfoot or yeti? I answered that I really don't know. I was so intrigued with the question. I needed to research this a little.
The poem Beowulf is located in the Nowell Codex. The poem is believed to have been written between the 8th and 10th century. It is quite unique its the only manuscript in the Codex to mention monsters.
Scholars have several numerous interpretations of Grendel.
One is Grendel and his mother are descendants of Cain which were exiled forever from society and cursed by God. In the epic poem it states that Grendel and his mother dwelt for a time in misery along the banished monsters of Cain's clan, Grendel is described as a man beast living in the marsh's, fields, and forest sounds similar to our Sasquatch of today. Also Cain and his descendants were believed to have magical powers, such as being able to shift their shapes and have bright shining eyes something that our Sasquatch have in common.
Grendel also has these magical powers. He is able to cast a spell so he cannot be harmed sounds kind of like being Zapped by a Sasquatch?
Grendel understands the ways of mankind but mankind cannot understand him. This fuels his rage and hatred of mankind, Maybe the Sasquatch of today can understand us and how destructive we are and when we enter there domain this is why they throw branches and rocks?
Another  interpretation scholars believe Grendel's origins comes from the book of Enoch. Specifically, in the book of watchers, it contains the origins of demons and giants
In the poem Grendel is described as a "Sceadugenga" a shadow walker or one who travels at night. Also the poem refers to him as "Ettin." This means troll in the old Norse language. Beowulf describes Grendel as a "Lotun" or giant in English. So was Grendel a Nephilim? How can this be since the Nephilim was destroyed in the Great flood. We now to go back to the bible as a reference, Genesis 6 where as the descendants of  the Seth " The sons of God"  intermarried with the descendants of Cain "The daughters of men."   Noah's sons married the descendants of Cain. 
Also we need to look at Hams sin  (Gen. 9:20-23; cf. Lev.18:8; 20:11). When Noah cursed Ham and said,  "Cursed be Canaan: a servant of servants shall be unto his brethren" (Gen. 9:25). Canaan was the fourth son of Ham. He is considered the father of the Canaanites: Jebusite, the Amorites, the Gigasites, Giants who all lived in the land of Canaan. 
Now we go to Numbers (13:32-33). So the men Moses had sent to spy out the land, and who had returned and made all the congregation grumble against him by bringing a bad report about the land. They said, "The land we explored devours those living in it. All the people we saw there are of great size. We saw the Nephilim there. The Nephilim is mention after the great flood in the time of Moses. So A Sasquatch or Yeti could be a descendent of a Nephilim as some researchers believe. Now lets talk about the mark of Cain, It has been considered that the mark of Cain that God placed upon him so man would not seek and kill Cain was the number of the beast, color of the skin what if it was the mark of gigantism as with Goliath everyone would fear going up against a 7 to 8 foot tall, 300-400 pound man.
So now there are scholars that believe that Grendel was used in the poem to explain what we could not understand such as plague and pestilence that ran rampant though out Europe at this time. The world was in chaos we were thrown into the dark ages with the fall of Rome. This may be the case but if one was to tell of a hero defeating something that he could not see he would be more likely to use sorcery or magic to defeat the unknown I would think.
This is my theory, This was a time when the Vikings raided the coasts of Europe and Paganism and Christianity clashed, and the time of the adventurer and wanderer and this where it comes to light. What if a wanderer or adventurer traveled to the orient maybe the Himalayas and heard the stories of the yeti or maybe seen one of these creatures, perhaps they visited one of the pagan tribes of the time and heard the oral stories of a man beast that dwelt in there lands, and the story was overheard by a scribe and written in a form that brought back hero's in a time of despair. 
We must take in to consideration that every story has some bases of truth, So my opinion is that Grendel could have been a Sasquatch or Yeti. I leave it up to you to decide if Grendel was a real creature or a tale to amuse us.
