Recent image showing 'skinwalker' sure looks a lot like XTRO..

The famed legend of the skinwalker is fast becoming a trend online.. There has been a frightening photo quickly going viral online of what purports to be a skinwalker in New Mexico--a state where many still believe in that Native American creature..

There are a few facts that cause me to truly doubt the the validity of this story.. about the photo is that the person who posted it has since taken it down--to late with how the Internet functions, of course.. According to New Mexico local news affiliate KRQE, the New Mexican posted the image but does not know the source of it..

But the most important fact: The photograph looks pretty much like an image from the 1983 movie XTRO.
See here:


I think it's fair to say that this skinwalker image has been debunked...

What's amazing about the Internet: Rumors and fiction spread fast.
But the other amazing part: Truth and reality also do, too.. there's millions of people who believe urban legends and lies, but a lot more who work hard to constantly debunk those myths.

I can tell you this, of course, nothing of this story being false leads any judgement over the skinwalker legend itself.
But the image rolling around surely is not real..

HEATHER WADE ROCKS MIDNIGHT: Ultra Top Secret: Assessment of Situation / Statement on Position on UFOs: Last night before the daily broadcast of MIDNIGHT IN THE DESERT began, Art Bell posted a Facebook message that breaking news could occur on the program.. Host Heather Wade followed up with a ‘brace for it’ message.When the intro music finally ended, Wade waded deep into the Men In Black danger zone: Revealed though her radio broadcast and now on the Midnight in the Desert page (http://ift.tt/2sqCSRZ) are secret documents said to be given to Wade by a trusted source..Stanton Friedman, an expert in the UFO community who goes back decades in research, told Art Bell that the documents now downloadable are all new pieces of information.. and even more, that they prove government knowledge of different types of extra-terrestrial beings. Even that we truly did recover bodies..Bombshell stuff if it proves true.
And speaking of that.. the MIDNIGHT page still has a caveat to the breaking news…
