Like something you’d find on one of those soft/pale/rosy/grunge blogs?
Well nothing too rosy on my blog.
The Bolton Strid in England is one of the most innocent looking streams.
Though it looks like you could just hop across the rocks, but if you miss you will die for sure. It packs very rapid currents just a couple of feet below its surface. No one really knows how deep it really is. Nobody who has ever fallen into the Strid has survived. It has a 100% fatality rate.
It’s always the things I google expecting to be false that wind up being horribly true.
I went from the land of the Poop Monster to the Cardiff Giant, an improvement I think.
Wait, WI has the Beast of Bray Road!? I have not heard of this! I thought ours was the Hodag!
While Rhinelander’s Hodag is more famous than the Beast of Bray Road, the Hodag was known to be a hoax almost immediately (and the legend stuck around because it was fun). The Beast of Bray Road (Wisconsin’s Werewolf) has remained an unresolved legend.
I only just now learned what the Beast of Busco was.
It was a snapping turtle.
We are not a clever people.
My favorite Indiana cryptid is the Crawfordsville Monster… which turned out to be a flock of birds.
