The Loveland Frog Men

Something very strange happened along the little Miami river back in 1955, in Loveland Ohio.
At around 3:30 Am a businessman was traveling on a road that ran along the little Miami, when he noticed three, small bipedal creatures standing alongside of the road.

The man pulled over to the side of the road and observed these creatures for over three minutes. He described them as having leathery skin and were definitely frog-like. They had deep wrinkles on top of their head and their hands and feet were webbed.

As if bothered by the mans observations, one of the humanoids lifted up what the man described as being a wand that suddenly started spewing sparks. The man got the hint and quickly left, the story, however didn’t end with this encounter.

Two policemen claim seeing a very similar creature almost two decades later.
an un-named police officer was cruising down the very same road the original encounter happened. He saw what looked to be a dead dog laying on the side of the road. It wasn’t . the thing jumped up and ran across the road, forcing the officer to slam on his breaks. The thing stopped in the middle of the road, and went from a crouch to a standing position where it stared the officer down for some time, then took off, climbing over the guardrail and presumably splashing into the freezing cold little Miami river.

When a fellow police officer went back to the scene to investigate, claw marks were found in the metal of the guardrail.

This wasn’t the only encounter involving a policeman. Officer Mark Mathews, again, saw what looked to be a dead dog on the side of the road. When he got out of his cruiser to investigate, he was shocked to see the body stand up. Realizing what he was seeing was not normal, he unholstered his side arm and fired. The thing hobbled over the guard rail, keeping its eyes on Mathews the whole time.

Mathews later redacted this account as being nothing more than taking a shot at someones escaped reptilian pet. He claimed he fabricated his account after his fellow officer was scrutinized for his report of seeing the creature.

Later that same year, a farmer was out walking his fields when he saw four similar creatures. They were small and stood upright. They had green skin and wide mouths filled sharp teeth. When they saw the farmer, they retreated to the little Miami river that ran along his farm.

Dog Man Vs. Hippies

In the Steve Cook song “The Legend”, There is mention of hippies encountering a dogman. It goes like this…

In ’67 a van-load of hippies, told a park-ranger named Quinlinn, they’d been awakened in the night by a scratch at the window, there was a dogman looking in and grinning.

This is allegedly a true encounter with a dogman happening along the Muskegon river in Michigan, however, reports of it are non-existant on the internet.

One very similar account, happened down in arkensas back in October of 72. This is recounted by Pam and involves her husband, brother, and her two sleeping babies being terrorized by a wolfman while camping out of ther Volswagon van.

He started the engine and that’s when, in the glow from the headlights, we could see a hairy THING, 10 feet away and coming toward the van!

As it got closer, its silver-tipped hairs glistened in the light. It had a greyish streak from its shoulders down its back, to its buttocks. The creature was walking on 2 legs, was around 7 or 8 feet tall, had a barrel-chest, and skinny legs. It never gave us a good view of its eyes, so I can’t tell you what they looked like. I COULD see that the face was not ape-like. It was dog-like. Its ears had tufts of fur on top of them and it was very human-like in its movements and general body structure.

It moved smoothly and quickly, around to the back of the van where it followed the base of the ridge, away from us. That’s when it let out a menacing “Huff” and a low, rumbling growl, like a dog.

Construction Crew Allegedly Find Dead Dog Man

In 1998 a young man named Jacob was driving to a construction job with his crew when they noticed something very big lying by the side of the road

At first, they thought it was a bear but as they studied the thing, they realized it was something completely outside the animal kingdom.

In an interview, Jacob described the creature as “built to kill”. It lips were curled back revealing huge pointy teeth, and hands, not paws, but human like hands with claws are sharp as knifes.

With blood pouring out of its mouth, the group actually debated putting it in the back of their truck and bringing it back into town but Jacob was addament that it was too heavy. They came up with the idea to come back and check on it after they were done at the jobsite. But when they came back, it was gone.

Later that week, Jacob’s house was attacked. It started when Jacob and a member of his family heard howls coming from the distance. Something very large then rammed into the side of their mobile home, almost turning it over. Jacob thinks that it was the same creature that they had seen at the side of the road. That is had picked up his scent, thought that maybe Jacob had been behind hurting the creature, and came for it’s revenge.

The Highgate Vampire

The highgate cemetery is rumored to have a vampire living in it.
In the late 60s early 70s, a psychic investigator named David Farrent Went to investigate the place only to encounter a dark figure that reportedly drained him of energy and then slinked away.

This was one of the more mild reports.

Other people have reported to see this thing close up and have described it as a walking, rotting corpse with pointy, vampire like teeth.

The thing is said to live under the cemetery, in a series of tunnels that once were part of an ancient castle that originally occupied the grounds.

The Legend of the Melonheads

The Legend of the melonheads spans three states but the story is relatively the same. It involves an insane asylum and an evil, abusive Dr. Crowe. His patients are all young children afflicted with hydrocephalus which causes the cranium to be enlarged.

Fed up with the doctors abusive ways, the children retaliate and kill the evil Dr. Crowe. The children then fled into the woods and lived off the land.

People have reported seeing feral like humans, clad in deer skins and having oversized heads, in the area where these legends occurred. Accounts range from full on sightings of the melonheads, to things, such as rocks and sticks, being thrown at their car while investigating these locations.

Bigfoot in Detroit

One of my favorite bigfoot encounters is recounted in this video. It involves a young woman and her mom being attacked by a bigfoot who reaches into their car and attempts to yank the daughter out, leaving bruises all over her body. It was said that this was nothing more than a story concocted to cover up some type of abuse. This encounter is referred to as “The 1965 Monroe Monster”. I first read this story in John Keel’s “The Complete Guide to Mysterious Beings”. It’s be funnest read on the cryptid topic and I highly recommend… I’ve read it three times.
