Lore

20,000 people have gone missing in the triangle in the last 50 years making it one of the highest missing persons location in the world. Aside from missing people it is said that over 2,000 airplanes have also gone missing within the triangle.

Inuit legends like Keelut or the Qalupalik are amongst the reasons the locals believe people go missing. Tlingit Indian lore talks about shapeshifting demons called Kushtaka (aka the Ottermen) that also take humans. Some are likely lost hikers, adventurers, and hunters taken by severe weather but the sheer numbers suggest something else. In 1972 House Majority Leader Hale Boggs’ Cessna went missing. The plane was carrying 5 men and a pilot U.S. House Majority Leader Hale Boggs, Alaska Congressman Nick Begich, an aide, Russell Brown, and their bush pilot Don Jonz. After months of searching neither the plane nor the passengers were ever found.

Akin to the Bermuda Triangle some believe the area contains an electromagnetically influenced “vile vortex.” This negative energy is believed to create confusion, nightmares, health issues and is said to distort electronic signals causing plane crashes and equipment malfunctions.

There are also stories of unexplained lights, creatures that cannot be explained, and even alien/UFO sightings.

Finally rumors of Bigfoot have also been cited as possible reasons why so many people go missing.

Physical Description

Legends and reports have this creature at 9 feet long, 5 feet tall; around 1000 pounds, and with very thick white fur. Supposedly two large dark stripes run along it’s back, and 8-inch canine fangs hang out its mouth like a Sabertooth cat.

Origin

This large feline-like creature inhabits the outside areas of Paxson, Alaska which is full of marshy terrain. The tails surrounding this creature began when locals missing cattle and hunters from the villages almost 200 years ago. Little of the old tails and legends have been recorded, so not much is known past the recent reports from modern times.

Mythology and Lore

There are reports to this day about the White Death sightings by locals on dog sled rides. Another report came from a young man Jason, who spotted the creature in a tree line. Others are from snowmobilers who claimed to capture a clear photo, which to this day is the only one inexistent. Many people claim the White Death has a roar so loud it rattles your chest. To this day locals comb the wilderness of Alaska trying to find this creature.
