Mystery of Devil's Hole

A mysterious bottomless pit in the Pacific Northwest has been the subject of stories for decades.
The mere existence of the hole is a matter of much controversy as nobody is sure where it even is. A Native American shaman called Red Elk is said to be one of the only people alive to have ever seen it, he claimed that the hole was 'endless' and that strange things would happen whenever he went near it. More recently, Mel Waters spoke to Art Bell on Coast to Coast when he claimed to have come across the mysterious hole. To determine its depth he lowered several miles worth a fishing line down it but failed to find the bottom.

"One guy claims that he threw his departed canine down into the hole," he said. "He swears the dog actually came back to him."
From Bigfoot to the disappearance of D. B. Cooper, the Pacific Northwest is full of mysteries. Another mystery buried deep in the hills of eastern Washington keeps resurfacing.

Why is it the the good old USA has so many supernatural events reported? Probably because it's a big country with a lot of people covering a lot of ground. Of course, it helps that a lot of people here are either nuts, professional hoaxers, or both. I'm not saying there's nothing there, but I am saying a lot of what comes out of the good ol' USA is kind of garbage.

We as a race are so funny sometimes. We pretend to be logical, but the minute a hole appears we become obsessed and start dreaming up wild tails to try to explain it... lol It's a hole. It probably got there threw one of the million other ways holes show up.... Eerrrp, I forgot where I'm posting... I mean; "Aliens put it there. Because the super advanced race if ETs can master space travel, but can't converse with us directly, so they have to fly around looking at us, take us in their ships to violently look in our *******s, dig holes, and ruin our crops to talk to us... _

I read off site, how animals were afraid to go near the hole. Then later how the edge of the hole was lined with animal carcasses. (Supposedly from animals that would not go near it) So which is it? Seems like forgetfulness from a tall tale.

Its not the big ones you have to worry about ,but the small crawl through ones that quickly fill with water when it rains and you're trying to get back to the surface.

Seems like forgetfulness from a tall tale. Or the animals were put there by whatever lives in the hole. Even extradimensional monsters need to redecorate once in a while.
