6. Skinwalker

This image that surfaced in 2014 is allegedly a heat signature of a bizarre animal captured by a geologist working in a New Mexico oil field. Many claim this monster to be a skinwalker – a mythical creature from native American legend that has the ability to shapeshift into any animal it chooses. Others believe it to be a hoax, claiming it is a still from a little known 1980’s science fiction film. What do you think? Hoax or proof that a skinwalker is prowling the oil fields of New Mexico?

5. Agonised Ghost in the Brush

There is next to no information available about this photo which leads me to think it’s a hoax. It shows a deer lit up by an infrared hunting camera but in the background is a chilling image of a spectral figure rising out of the brush. It looks as though it’s screaming in agony.

I’ll put this one down as most likely a Photoshop job but if you have any more information on this photo, please let us know in the comments section below.

4. Zombie Boy on Trail Cam

This photo has been doing the Internet rounds for a few years now. Captured in 2009, it shows a young boy wandering through the woods late at night. He looks entranced with glowing white eyes. From his posture it looks at though he’s shuffling awkwardly, possibly injured. What is this kid doing all alone in the middle of the forest? Is he sleep walking? Or is it something far more sinister? Maybe it’s a zombie or wayward spirit. If this is a ghost captured on film, it has incredible detail that’s normally missing in paranormal photos. Or more sensibly, it could just be the neighbour’s boy playing tricks.

3. Clown on Trail Camera

It would appear the slew of clown sightings across north America may have started earlier than first thought. On August 30, 2009 this trail camera detected movement mid-morning and started capturing images. When the owner reviewed the pictures he was shocked to discover a clown had been roaming his property. The camera was placed in the middle of the woods, miles from the nearest town. Why would a fully dressed clown be stalking the woods that early in the morning? Even if it was some local playing tricks on the hunter, it still means they were dressed as a clown, deep in the woods. That on it’s own, is creepy enough.

2. Little Girl in the Woods

This unsettling trail camera pic shows a little girl lost in the middle of the woods. In the foreground a large, well-horned buck stares ominously at the camera. A doe, strangely unafraid, is looking straight at the young girl. It’s odd that they are all standing so close to one another. Normally deer are easily startled and will never stand that close to humans. The girl looks barefoot and dazed.

Unfortunately there’s no solid information about this picture. There is a chance this camera is set up near a campsite and the girl may have just been curious about the animals. But still, it’s scary enough for a girl that young to be so close to a buck of that size in the middle of the night.
