This Week's Weird News

A fantastic series of possible Bigfoot photos, the discovery of an odd ice age structure made out of mammoth bones, and a repentant thief who returned a stolen artifact for fear that End Times are upon us are among the strange, unusual, and enlightening stories to pop up our radar this week.

Considering its pervasive nature both across the planet and in the news cycle, it's no surprise that the coronavirus has spawned some rather strange stories beyond merely widespread toilet paper hoarding. In Israel, a man who stole an artifact 15 years ago grew concerned that the pandemic is a sign of the End Times and, as such, decided to return the pilfered object to authorities in order to clear his conscience. Over in Spain, drones were deployed to encourage people to stay at home to avoid the virus and cops stopped a man who defied the lockdown by roaming the streets in a dinosaur costume.

This past week provided several stories in which scientists detailed fascinating finds from our distant past. In Iran, researchers identified an odd petroglyph featuring a half-man, half-mantis entity. Meanwhile, archaeologists in Russia unearthed a bizarre ice age structure that had been constructed out of mammoth bones. And, paleontologists in Europe announced that they had found the oldest-known bird fossil which they dubbed the 'wonderchicken.'

By far the most intriguing story from this past week centered around a series of remarkable photos that may show a Bigfoot peering through the window of a home in Colorado. Providing considerable detail, witness Scott Yeoman recounted the weird event wherein he spotted the large creature lurking outside and promptly snapped some rather jaw-dropping photos. The images in question are tremendous as far as Bigfoot photos go and seemingly feature what was either a genuine Sasquatch or a dedicated prankster wearing a quite convincing gorilla costume.
