I am a cryptozoologist who specializes in the Mogollon Monster, Arizona’s Bigfoot. I have been all over the United States and in many foreign countries collecting information on the world wide variations of Bigfoot, Sasquatch, Yarin, Hairy Man, and Grass Man. From time to time, I run into the unexpected. After all, you go looking for strange things, and you will run into things you just can’t explain.
Such is the case in the rural area near Show Low, Arizona. I recently went there to research a possible Bigfoot that kept knocking on the sides of a trailer even when the occupants were inside. This travel trailer is an all metal streamline trailer measuring 21 feet in length. There are no sources of power such as power lines, and the only power is provided by solar panels and batteries all of very low voltage (12 volts). The nearest neighbors are quite a distance away, and the area is remote.
A few months back, I had helped locate the trailer and placed it on cement blocks. Since the owner had some cats, I helped build a “Cat Run” on the front of the trailer which would allow the cats to go outside without fear of the coyotes having them for dinner. The first night I spent there, the cats had not been relocated to the trailer, and I was lying in bed when something started knocking on the side of the trailer. It would start at the back of the trailer and work forward in a rhythmic manner and then it sounded like a small critter climbed the chicken wire. “Rats,” I thought.
After the cats moved in, the knocking continued each night, and the cats seemed a bit reluctant about going outside into their run. Something had them scared.
On 24 October, I arrived at the trailer to try to figure out what was making the noises outside. I was geared up to find a skunk, raccoon, coyote or even a Bigfoot, but found something else instead, The game cameras caught the action. The trailer had strange reflections in the metal skin under the infrared lights of the game cameras. The chicken wire of the cage would sparkle as if there was some kind of electric plasma discharge. The knocking was very loud. I might also add, I became very sick to my stomach, and was very dizzy. My blood pressure dropped to 84 over 44 which is very low for me. As soon as I left the area, the symptoms subsided.
We have not figured out the cause of the knocking, or the source of energy. The knocking and electrical flashes continue. We will continue to investigate.
