Possiable activity on Bates lane Henry county KY. July 2017

Possible activity on Bates Lane in Henry county KY . A gentleman contacted Rodney Adams about a possible encounter, Rodney then informed me at which time I contacted the gentleman and he describe to me what happen to him. he stated that a friend and he was fishing off of Bates lane in Henry county  KY.  At around 11:30 pm they kept seeing the cattails move as if something large was moving thru them  about fifteen minutes later a large rock that he could barely lift landed half way on the bank , He stated they didn't see anything but something spooky is going on in there. At night you can hear what sounds like little kids screaming for help, He also stated that during the day and night they felt as if they were being watched and at one point he stated that this strange feeling came over  him and he just kept nodding off out of no where.
I'm not going back again that's for sure. Was what he told me.
On September 29, 2013. I conducted an interview of two women that had a visual encounter of a bigfoot crossing Bates lane.
On October 05,2013. Rodney and I conducted an investigation in which we encountered something large and observed at a distance something shaking a tree.
Truly something spooked this gentleman and this warrants another investigation in which the NKBRG will conduct soon

Examining evidence

Evidence is something we are extremely cautious before posting. We spend hours if not months studying and discussing evidence.  This includes castings, photos, and audio.  There is evidence that hasn't be released due to the fact we can not explain the evidence. We receive photos and audio from people who ask for our opinion and we try to give them the right answers and sometimes it get pretty nasty, but not always.

When we review our photograph and video evidence, we scrutinize every piece.  For example, last year, one of our trail cams captured a photograph of what appeared to be of a dark figure squatting in the foreground. Steven Cornell and I went to the site and recreated what we saw in the photograph. We took several photos at the same distance and height.  Steven even posed in the recreations just like it was in the photo.  After reviewing the recreations, the photos didn't match up to the one on the trail cam.  We repeated the process over and over again. Then we started to see the terrain  didn't match up. Next we checked the trail cam, and we found that the zoom was on high.  What we were seeing in the photo was a small root sticking out of the ground. By going thru this process we got our answers and debunked the original photo.
The trail cam was on high zoom the root  was 40 feet away the root was only 2 inches above the ground
 
The same scrutiny applies to castings.  There are castings that we haven't released. We carefully photograph, measure, and inspect all prints.  we also measure the track way.  This takes a considerable amount of time. Then, there's the process of making sure its not hoaxed. After the casting has dried, I begin the long process of taking measurements again, checking for hair and any deformities, and cross referencing to other prints taken in or around the area.  I also sketch the print and catalog by date, time, and location.

When audio evidence is collected, it is listened to over and over again.  Any vocalizations are cross-referenced to the known wildlife in the area.

Video evidence is the most time consuming.  Sometimes, we have hours of video evidence to review, and it takes up to a week.  This is reviewed many times.  Time is spent recording time stamps on paper to view more closely, then recovering the time stamps of importance, and finally reviewing these again to eliminate things that can be explained.

As I said earlier, we have evidence that we will not release until it has been thoroughly and rigorously investigated.  We do not jump to conclusions. This should be the first rule of collecting evidence and we would never release evidence that has alternative explanations. This how the NKBRG collects and examines evidence.  Everyone has their own way of collecting evidence so lets try and be courteous.  

    








Sasquatches, ticks and Lyme disease

Recently  I was asked a question from  Mr. Kevin Geyman, and this is what he asked.
 (Hey got a question to ask and see what you know about this. Since the sasquatches have hair all over them. What about the ticks since deer and other mammals get them. Then if that's not all if they contract Lyme disease just like the other animals. It was just some thoughts.)
Now, since there has never been a body discovered and no scientific evidence has been documented on this hominid, this is just mostly theory and opinion.  I do believe that sasquatches do become infested with ticks and lice just like all animals and contract diseases like Lyme disease. Think about it. When ticks infest a host, they cause irritation of the skin, erratic behavior, pain, and fever.  There have been countless reports of sasquatches having patches of hair missing, and, in some cases, they exhibit  erratic behavior that could be caused by fever and/or joint pain. This is only my opinion.
We must also remember primates conduct social grooming between members of their species. It is called “allogrooming” with the purpose of removing parasites and for hygiene.  Since sasquatches are hominid, they may also conduct allogrooming to remove ticks, lice, and any other parasites.
It is said that the natural resistance to ticks is because of animals' abilities to respond in a natural and immunological fashion. It stands to reason that with the stimulation from tick bites, it is possible the body will trigger a release of histamine from dermal mast cells at the site of the bite which would lead us to believe sasquatches are immune to parasites such as ticks and lice infestation. We must also take into consideration the  tick-resistance by skin thickness, coat type, coat color, hair density, and skin secretions.
Certain animals such as mice who doesn't suffer from Lyme disease are carriers. So it would seem in theory that sasquatches may not suffer from the disease, but carry it. So there is no correct answer until a body is discovered.

I admit that I do not always or even often know the answer to questions like this, so I do research like anyone else. This information was taken from the following sources:
