mtmiller, it hit my e-mail this morning from a buddy from Alma Wisconsin, it looks like Wisconsin! and where we hunt up there is right on the mississippi river and rails run both sides all day and all night!
ill try to find out !
Those top wires are most likely grounded, so no worries about burning. Personally, I think the whole train story is B.S. It's obvious that aliens picked this animal up in their flying saucer, gave it an anal probe, then dumped it out again. Those missing forelegs are due to the stirrups they use to hold the subject in the probe position--they have jaws kind of like those nasty wolf traps.
Undoubtedly they would have gone back to remove it from the pole, but had to bug out because the black helicopters were in hot pursuit. I wonder if these were the green aliens or the grey ones?
Bird the Size of a Plane Spotted in Alaska?1 hour, 57 minutes agoANCHORAGE, Alaska (Reuters) - A bird the size of a small airplane was recently spotted flying over southwest Alaska, puzzling scientists, the Anchorage Daily News reported this week.
The newspaper quoted residents in the villages of Togiak and Manokotak as saying the creature, like something out of the movie "Jurassic Park," had a wingspan of 14 feet -- making it the size of a small airplane. "At first I thought it was one of those old-time Otter planes," the paper quoted Moses Coupchiak, 43, a heavy equipment operator from Togiak, as saying. "Instead of continuing toward me, it banked to the left, and that's when I noticed it wasn't a plane." The Daily News, the largest daily in Alaska, said scientists had no doubt that people in the region, west of Dillingham, had seen the winged creature but they were skeptical about its reported size. "I'm certainly not aware of anything with a 14-foot wingspan that's been alive for the last 100,000 years," the paper quoted raptor specialist Phil Schemf as saying. Coupchiak said the bird disappeared over the hill and he then radioed Togiak residents to tell them to keep their children in. Another local resident, a pilot who had initially dismissed the reports, said he recently saw the bird from a distance of just 1,000 feet while flying his airplane. "The people in the plane saw him," John Bouker was quoted as saying. "He's huge, he's huge, he's really, really big. You wouldn't want to have your children out." Schemf and Rob Macdonald of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service said there had been several sightings over the past year and a half of a Steller's eagle, a fish-eating bird that can weigh 20 pounds (10 kg) and have a wingspan of eight feet, the newspaper reported.
