For almost a quarter of a century, ever since breaking the original story of the Beast of Bray Road as a small town Wisconsin newspaper reporter, I've been chasing the elusive upright canine some folks call werewolves. People from around North and South America and even Europe and Australia have contacted me with reports of their encounters. Sometimes their stories describe Bigfoot, giant birds or water monsters, as well. There's a world o'weirdness out there! The fact that people keep seeing these things is what drives me to keep searching, investigating, speculating and writing about them. And after 25 years and 17 published books, I'm still tracking those unknown trails.
Linda Moulton Howe
Linda Moulton Howe is a graduate of Stanford University with a Masters Degree in Communication. She has devoted her documentary film, television, radio, web, writing and reporting career to productions concerning science, medicine and the environment.
Ms. Howe has received local, national and international awards, including three regional Emmys, a national Emmy nomination and was an honored producer for medical and science programming in a WCVB-TV (ABC) Boston station Peabody. Linda’s award-winning documentaries have included A Strange Harvest that explored the worldwide animal mutilation mystery that has haunted the United States and other countries since the 1960s and continues to date.
Other award-wining productions are Poison in the Wind and A Sun Kissed Poison, which compared smog pollution in Los Angeles and Denver; Fire In The Water about hydrogen as an alternative energy source to fossil fuels. That work was honored in New York City with a 1978 National Emmy Finalist for Community Service.
Linda’s investigations and TV broadcasts about environmental issues in Colorado were also recognized and honored by the Environmental Protection Agency with a Citizen Participation Award from actor and environmentalist Robert Redford at the Denver EPA headquarters on January 1, 1980.
Paralleling her air and water investigations from 1976 to 1979, Linda began in September 1979 to investigate the phenomenon of bloodless and trackless animal mutilations that were occurring not only in Colorado, but every state in the U. S., every province in Canada and around the world in both hemispheres.
Her production A Strange Harvest was broadcast on KMGH-TV as a 90-minute evening special on May 25, 1980, to the largest audience in the station’s history for a locally-produced documentary and earned Linda another Regional Emmy.
During her 9-month-long travels from September 1979 to May 1980 to film the bizarre, bloodlessly mutilated animals in Wyoming, New Mexico and throughout Colorado, law enforcement and ranchers told Linda off and on the record that “the perpetrators of the animal mutilations are creatures from outer space.”
A decade later in June 1989, Linda Moulton Howe released An Alien Harvest – Further Evidence Linking Animal Mutilations and Human Abductions to Alien Life Forms.
This is the first of three large books about her ongoing investigations of government policies of denial and cover-up about the worldwide, bloodless animal mutilation mystery that includes not only cattle, but horses, goats, sheep, pigs, rabbits, foxes, cats, dogs and wild animals such as deer, elk, reindeer and Australian kangaroos. A new and expanded 2nd Edition of An Alien Harvest was awarded Best Non-Fiction by the Arizona and New Mexico Southwest Book Association in December 2015.
