Two-headed and multi-legged animals seem to always catch peoples imagination. This piglet is great, but I can’t help feeling it won’t live long.

Another Vampire story and totally weird, a 22 year old women attached a 69 year old guy who feel asleep in his motorised wheelchair!

Apparently the two were sheltering from the rain when Milton Ellis fell asleep, only to be woken when Josephine Smith had pounced on him claiming she was a vampire and wanted to eat him!

Video: The Dancing Pig!

OK, this has been around for years, well since 1907 in fact! It’s freaky as hell, but I bet you can’t stop watching it!

El Chupacabra Mystery Definitively Solved – Maybe!?

I thought this had already been explained, but then again — has it really be explained now?

Benjamin Radford, author of several books on monsters and paranormal phenomena, managing editor of the journal The Skeptical Inquirer and LiveScience columnist, has released what he says to be definitive proof that El Chupacabra is not real; it’s not even a hoax, he said, but rather a leftover memory of a science-fiction film.

What the? Soviet Surgeon removes his own Appendix!
What the? Soviet Surgeon removes his own Appendix!

I worked without gloves. It was hard to see. The mirror helps, but it also hinders — after all, it’s showing things backwards. I work mainly by touch. The bleeding is quite heavy, but I take my time — I try to work surely.

Book Bound Human Skin goes on display!

A grim read indeed! A 1852 copy of The Poetical Works of John Milton, which is bound in human skin, is about to go on display at a crime and punishment exhibition in Exeter, which is part of Devon’s annual Local History Day.

When Devon murderer George Cudmore was sentenced to hang at the Lent Assizes in 1830, he knew that part of his sentence was that his dead body would be taken to an Exeter hospital to be dissected.

Joggers attacked by Buzzards!

Joggers have been left bloodied and scarred following a spate of attacks by buzzards. It is like a scene from Alfred Hitchcock’s The Birds, with unsuspecting victims swooped on by avian attackers.

Another one of Loren Coleman’s “Montauk Monsters” has apparently been washed up on a beach near Long Island. As Loren says, he may have come up with the name, but don’t blame him for the thing or things – especially as they all appear to be just common animals decaying on the shorelines of the […]
