If anyone reading this “1965 Monroe Monster” series knows of large tracts of privately wooded and agricultural land in Monroe, and would like to know what inhabits the land, you may contact the individual below. They would need permission to enter the property and to walk property.
If you have experienced some of the oddities spelled out in this series i.e., strange screams in the woods at night or early morning hours, seen something strange at night crossing the roads, found strange wood structures in the woods please contact the individual below.
If you would like to report an actual sighting or your experience please include: Date, Time, Location, Type of Report i.e. Screams or howls, color and size of animal, and if there any witnesses present with a summary of details.
All group participants are experienced adult outdoorsmen and Michigan residents with various previous professional specialty backgrounds joining together with respect for wildlife, property and the outdoors to document and research these encounters.
All reports and sightings are strictly confidential.
There have been a number of reported sightings in the county before during and following the 1965 Monroe incident, and we know there have been sporadic sightings since the early 1980s. Local habitat of dense wooded areas and marshes, agricultural fields and abundant wildlife in close proximity to water provide ideal living conditions for these animals.
In 1965, they called it a hoax but, I do not believe that to be the case and I would like to be on the leading edge of proving this right or wrong for a final time. I never knew the people involved in the case and they do not know me. When good folk are paraded in front of the public like frauds, liars, or hoaxsters for speaking out folks really we need to get a grip on reality. They were and continue to be the only true victims in that charade.
Exactly what they reported seeing on that hot summer night in August 1965, is exactly what many folks reported across the state two years earlier around the Sisters lake and Dewey Lakes region in southwest Michigan beginning in 1963 through 1964.
It was exactly what Michigan’s early Native American Indians already knew hundreds of years before. In fact, nearly 700 sightings or encounters throughout Michigan have continued since the Monroe incident not by hoaxster’s or frauds or shills, but by law enforcement, military personnel, husband and wives, city workers, whole families, children, neighbors, hunters, motorists, campers, hikers, farmers some plain old church going folk.
If you are a large land tract owner or know property owners described above that would consider giving a small group of former professional people permission to access your property to look for signs of this habitat, snap some photos, collect plaster casts if anything found, and remain completely confidential you can do so by contacting Bob D at email: firstname.lastname@example.org
