Cryptid expert and investigator Ken Gerhard was recently a guest on Coast to Coast AM:
In the latter half, cryptozoologist Ken Gerhard talked about sightings of various cryptids such as Bigfoot, Mothman, and the Loch Ness Monster, as well as his investigations into anomalous events and creatures in the state of Alaska, which he's explored in his History Channel TV series, Missing in Alaska. Like the Bermuda Triangle, Alaska has a geographical triangle where strange disappearances have occurred. This area has seen a number of cases of missing aircraft, such as a military plane carrying 44 people that completely vanished in 1950, and no trace was ever found despite an intensive search, he reported. One theory suggests there could be vortexes or portals in the triangle that have geomagnetic anomalies which are related to the disappearances.
In Alaska, Bigfoot or the Hairy Man has typically been described as similar to the Sasquatch of the Pacific Northwest-- standing 7-8 ft. tall, completely covered in hair, very broad-shouldered, and having no neck, Gerhard cited. Yet, there have also been Alaskan reports of a creature that stands 12-15 ft. tall. A legendary creature called the Kushtaka by the indigenous people of Southeastern Alaska, bears the characteristics of both man and otter, is said to be able to shapeshift, and seeks to lure humans out into the wilderness, he detailed. Gerhard also touched on such subjects as Thunderbirds, Dogman, Project HAARP, Flying Humanoids, and chupacabras.
