Night Seige: Big Cats and Giant Monsters (Flatwoods Included!)

Join “Exploring the Bizarre” ( hosts Tim Swartz and Tim Beckley as they hunt Alien Big Cats and Other Small Town Monsters With Guests MICHAEL MAYES and SETH BREEDLOVE.
A cryptid creature is usually thought of as something whose existence has yet to be proved or disproved by science. The Loch Ness Monster, Bigfoot, Mothman and the Jersey Devil are good examples. Then there are the things that are known to exist, but are seen outside of their usual habitats. Phantom cats, also known as Alien Big Cats (ABCs), are large felines, often reported as "black panthers," that are spotted in places where such animals shouldn't be around, yet people continue to spot them. Michael Mayes joins us tonight to talk about his new book: ""Shadow Cats: The Black Panthers of North America." Also with us is Seth Breedlove, whose film, "The Flatwoods Monster: A Legacy of Fear" looks at one of the earliest UFO Occupant controversies. Both are available on Amazon. Free newsletter
