I almost jumped out of my chair with excitement when I saw this post on Reddit.

On Friday June 23, 2023 a Reddit user/onlinestevenn shared a bit of an audio recording to the Danbury, CT group with a heading that read "weird noise from the woods." The detailed video description said: "Recently just moved here and I've happened to pick up on a pattern of noises i hear on a nightly basis, mostly around 8pm-4am. I wanna say its a deer maybe but i cant be too sure about that, tell me what you think?"

weird noise from the woods?

I played it a few times and was not able to hear it well and then it occurred to me, YOU'RE IN A SOUND STUDIO FULL OF EDITING EQUIPMENT! HAZAAAA! I enhanced the audio and this time, it sounded way more interesting.

I followed up with a little hiss reduction (don't know if it helped) but it sounded better to me.

Now that you've listened what are you hearing? Is it the groans of the Sasquatch? A man with severe emphysema? Or, a cat out looking for some hog? I don't trust my instincts on this because I so badly want it to be the Bigfoot.

More specifically....

I hear the Bigfoot, I do. In fact, I picked up a hint of John Lithgow in there. Something is afoot in the woods of Danbury and it's got a BIG FOOT!

10 Extraordinary Reports of CT Bigfoot Encounters

The Bigfoot Field Research Organization is a legit group that takes the business of Bigfoot very seriously, so if you have had an encounter with a Bigfoot, you should not hesitate to reach out to them. When you think about Bigfoot, and I do a lot, Connecticut is one of the last places that comes to mind but there are far more eyewitness accounts than you might imagine. These are 10 of the most extraordinary Bigfoot sightings in the Nutmeg State.

Greater Danbury Bobcat Sightings, Too Close for Comfort

This morning (4/28/21) on the Ethan and Lou Show we were discussing a viral video from North Carolina. In it, a couple was brutally attacked by a rabid bobcat but according to USA Today, they are going to be OK. 

This sent me off on a tirade about bobcats because this happens to be one of my pet peeves. In the Greater-Danbury area, wildlife sightings are frequent and when one animal gets photographed, everyone piles on and says, yeah me too You saw a bear? I saw a bear! 

I made the case that too many people are claiming to have seen bobcats recently, and with no proof. I said, look I know they are prevalent but they can't be around in the numbers that people will have you believe. Every Frank and Fran in the area says they saw one yesterday. 

I said, if you saw a bobcat, prove it. It looks like I may have been underestimating the bobcats and the Ethan and Lou listeners because they did prove it and in a hurry. These are the Greater-Danbury Bobcat Sightings That are Too Close for Comfort.
