Anybody ever hear of the "Deer Woman?"

Female deer? :rolleyes:

Winganon Swamp Monster, that supposedly breaks the tops of and tears fence posts out of the ground, and actual police officers reported what they call "orcs" in the Chelsea cemetery, about three feet tall, dark figures that move around among the tombstones - supposedly the police won't go into the place alone on foot without two or more people, or being in their car. Lizardman (hangs out in a cemetery near Stillwater).

Got any info in more detail? Google doesn't provide much.

I'm afraid not, this is all direct word-of-mouth, among townsfolk, family and friends, from lifelong residence and being in the right place at the right time, being in good with some local authorities, etc. Very specific and obscure local "atmosphere" for the area - those "my friend's sister said when she was little, she saw..." stories. I've talked to a couple of people who claimed to have seen a few things over the years, one who found fence posts freshly broken off, and knew a group of locals that for some reason the cops were cool with them hanging out and shooting the breeze, regarding the "orcs" - but what I've told you is pretty much all that's known, as far as I know.

Ah, that's a shame. I've been tracking reputable Lizardman/Frogman sightings for several months now; and a few in Oklahoma would be quite interesting to log and study. If you do happen to come across any good info, please do let me know.

I've heard of an Octopus-Like creature inhabiting the waters of Oklahoma that has cause many unexplained drownings. That's about it.

Yes I just came across that recently, and find it quite suspicious I have never heard anything about it, all the time I've lived here, from all my friends and family, for over thirty years, who've been all over the US, including Oklahoma. Just saying...

I've got a story on the oklahoma octopus. ^_^

One day, near a large lake in oklahoma, a boy was going out to far into the water. His mom told him to come back, but he couldn't here her. Suddenly, the boy screamed,, and shouted that something was pulling him under. A life guard came to save him, but it was too late. He was drowned. The culprit was an octopus the size of a horse.

how can an octopus live in lakes that are man-made (or any freshwater lakes, for that matter)? and how can native american legends refer to something that lives in lakes that are only about 60 years old? i smell something fishy (hehe)

Yeah. As I mentioned earlier in the thread, when people talk about the Oklahoma Octopus, they never mention how the lake it's supposed to live in is less than sixty years old, was totally manmade, and as far as I know, isn't connected to any other rivers to allow something in. :P

oops. didn't read the read of the thread, because i thought it a case of necroposting (the first post was from a long time back). i agree, this whole oklahoma octopus is a very unbelievable story.

It's less likely than the Loch Ness Monster - and from me, that's saying something. XD

Not that I think it's a very believable scenario; but just to put this out there:

Stupid person buys small pet octopus, doesn't like it, releases in the lake. Octopus somehow survives in lake, grows, someone sees a tentacle, panic ensues.

IF an octopus came to live in a lake, then this is a plausible scenario. but octopus cannot survive in freshwater. they even avoid brackish water if possible. i think if one were to be released into a lake, it would be belly-up in a matter of hours. the catch is, there is supposed to be a tie-in to native american legends regarding this oklahoma octopus, but how can this be if the lakes where it's supposedly seen are no older than 60 years old? all of it just doesn't make sense to me.

I've read in the newspapers of bigfoot sightings, and I found a reference in a book about strange occurrences in Oklahoma to some sightings of a sort of deer-like Canid.

Now that is interresting... I live in Quebec, Port-Cartier on the north shore to be exact. I've seen an animal that the words "deer-like canid" would describe it at its best. It was like a huge all-white dog with a deer-like head with no antlers. And yes, with the same big black eyes (just like a horse, for a better reference). The best part? One of my friend also seen this "beast". He did describe it perfectly. Another guy says he went to his chalet and saw it too. We can't be sure of what it is really, but we can be sure of what it isn't! Not a bear, not a wolf, not a caribou or deer, not a lynx and certainly not a moose... and it's about the only big mammals that are in our woods!

Hi Eklezys, nice post, very interesting story. I like the expression "deer-like canid" although I have a vegetarian version of what the large mammal could be
, yes, an evolved cousin of the rock hyrax. Here's a classic video of the Dartmoor Beast, which is also reputed to have a strange agile gait

About the Oklahoma Octopus. We all know Octopuses can squeeze through the smallest things. Maybe it's a species of Octopus that can survive in freshwater and it could have made tunnels connected to the ocean or cracks down in the lake that links to the ocean. Very unlikely though but that's just a theory.

The "nature man"? Who is he, and how much did he charge for you to tag along on investigations?

A thermal of an octopus? You do know they are coldblooded right? Then again we are talking about a magic octopus so anything is possible.
