A video of an enormous Bigfoot, a rhino head left on a sidewalk, and a Virgin Mary statue that somehow survived Hurricane Ida unscathed were among the strange and unusual stories to cross our desk this past week.
One of the best potential Bigfoot videos to come along in quite some time popped up online this past week and it was so remarkable that many observers said it was simply too good to be true. The footage in question is said to have originated from Idaho, although the circumstances behind the scene are, unfortunately, unknown. Be that as it may, the video shows a close-up view of a massive Sasquatch walking through a wooded area. To Bigfoot believers, the footage is nothing short of revelatory, but skeptics argued that the incredibly clear view of the creature and the murky nature of the video's origin made it rather suspect.
This past week saw a pair of very strange incidents involving truly bizarre out-of-place objects, beginning with a video from the U.S. Transportation Security Administration which showed a chunk of raw chicken meat inexplicably circulating on an airport luggage conveyor belt. Based on its cubic shape, the puzzling wad of poultry was likely initially checked onto the flight inside of a cooler by a hasty traveler who did not secure the package very well. Meanwhile, in Pennsylvania, cops were left scratching their heads after a taxidermied rhinoceros head was found sitting on a sidewalk. As one might imagine, authorities are now trying to figure out where it came from and why it was mysteriously abandoned.
Hurricane Ida cut a path of destruction from the Gulf Coast all the way up to the Northeast this past week, but amid the chaos came something of a sliver of hope in the form of a Virgin Mary statue that somehow went unscathed as the storm swept over a town in Louisiana. The jaw-dropping discovery was made by a TV viewer who was watching drone footage of the community of Grand Isle, which was devastated by the hurricane. To their profound surprise, they spotted a statue of the Virgin Mary clearly still standing outside of a home that had been completely destroyed. The stunning sight was understandably interpreted by some as a miraculous occurrence meant to raise the spirits of those who had lost so much in the disaster.
