The Beast of Gevaudan

The Beast of Gevaudan

In 1764, a monstrous, wolf-like beast terrorized the people of Gévaudan, slaying dozen of the local inhabitants. Over the years, the creature’s identity remains uncertain with researchers proposing theories ranging from a pack to wolves to a hyena and even a few daring to suggest a werewolf. The following YouTube video, produced by Crypticc, goes into more detail about the Beast of Gevaudan.

Football Phantoms

In honor of the Super Bowl, here are several stadiums which are home to more than just their respective living football teams.

In the Detroit Lions stadium it is believed that the ghost of Jimmy Hoffa can still be heard cheering on his favorite team. Jimmy Hoffa, the leader of the International Brotherhood of the Teamsters Union, was a major Detroit Lions fan up until his disappearance from a restaurant parking lot. Although no one can say what happened to him for sure, many believe that he was murdered. The former Giants stadium was also believed to be linked to the mysterious Hoffa disappearance. It was speculated that Hoffa’s body was buried underneath concrete under one of the end zones. However, there has never been any evidence to support this claim, and the stadium has since been demolished.

Memorial Stadium at Indiana University is haunted by a spirit known as “Mr. Plume.” “Mr Plume”, who’s real name was Michael Plume, was a student at the university in the 1960s. During this time, the Memorial Stadium was just being built. Only a few months away from its completion, the body of the 19 year old student was found hanging from the rafters of an incomplete section. Although he was in a construction site filled with dirt and dust, his shoes remained completely clean. Despite this odd detail, Plumes death was ruled a suicide. Now people who visit the stadium can sometimes still see the ghostly apparition of his body swinging from a rope in the spot that he died.

The Wisconsin Badger’s stadium is home to several ghostly specters. Long before it was turned into a sports field, it was the site of a training site for Union Soldiers during the Civil War. Nearby was also a prison camp for Confederate soldiers. Visitors to the area can sometimes still catch a glimpse of long gone soldiers wandering around.

轆轤首 – Rokurokubi (potter wheel neck)

Rokurokubi are normal women by day, but at night they gain the ability to stretch their necks to ridiculous proportions.

It is said that rokurokubi live undetected during daylight and may even take mortal husbands trying to keep their demonic forms secret. They are tricksters by nature, however, and their compulsion to frighten and spy on human beings is hard to resist. Some rokurokubi thus resort to revealing themselves only to drunks, the sleeping, or the blind in order to satisfy these urges.

Other stories say that the rokurokubis were humans who had broken Buddhist law. They feast on the blood, favoring that of those who had also broken religious doctrine.
