Default English word list

Alright so, I took the default database from there https://skribbliohints.github.io/ and with the help of html, I extracted the words to a list separated by commas. It's useful when you want to translate those words into your native language.
Word of advice, when using google translate, do not put all words at once there, it can rapidly worsen the translation.
(And there is a last thing. Their algorithm of picking only custom words is not working really good, at least for me. Meaning that I often get duplicates, despite having a list this big and without duplicates. I'm still trying to find some solution to this, so if somebody is experiencing this as well, share the knowledge please, I will do the same.)
SOLUTION: Thanks for the reply from PepegaWR who identified the cause. I also tested it and there seems to be a custom words limit of 5000 characters. The easiest way in my opinion is to shuffle the words before each session to minimize the impact. Also thanks to the flynger who had the same idea before me :)
Finally, here it is, enjoy the scribbling ^^ :

The Sun Exchange raises $3M for crypto driven solar power in Africa

Read more on WordPress https://ift.tt/2AaMmq6
https://ift.tt/2XLfCfV
South Africa based renewable energy startup Sun Exchange has raised $3 million to close its Series A funding round totaling $4 million.
The company operates a peer-to-peer, crypto enabled business that allows individuals anywhere in the world to invest in solar infrastructure in Africa.
How’s that all work?
“You as an individual are selling electricity to a school in South Africa, via a solar panel you bought through the Sun Exchange,” explained Abe Cambridge — the startup’s founder and CEO.
“Our platform meters the electricity production of your solar panel. Arranges for the purchasing of that electricity with your chosen energy consumer, collects that money and then returns it to your Sun Exchange wallet.”
It costs roughly $5 a panel to get in and transactions occur in South African Rand or Bitcoin.
“The reason why we chose Bitcoin is we needed one universal payment system that enables micro transactions down to a millionth of a U.S. cent,” Cambridge told TechCrunch on a call.
He co-founded the Cape Town headquartered startup in 2015 to advance renewable energy infrastructure in Africa. “I realized the opportunity for solar was enormous, not just for South Africa, but for the whole of the African continent,” said Cambridge.
“What was required was a new mechanism to get Africa solar powered.”
Sub-Saharan Africa has a population of roughly 1 billion people across a massive landmass and only about half of that population has access to electricity, according to the International Energy Agency.
Recently, Sun Exchange’s main market South Africa — which boasts some of the best infrastructure in the region — has suffered from blackouts and power outages.

Sun Exchange has 17,000 members in 162 countries who have invested in solar power projects for schools, businesses and organizations throughout South Africa, according to company data.
The $3 million — which closed Sun Exchange’s $4 million Series A — came from the Africa Renewable Power Fund of London’s ARCH Emerging Markets Partners.
With the capital the startup plans to enter new markets. “We’re going to expand into other Sub-Saharan African countries. We’ve got some clear opportunities on our roadmap,” Cambridge said, referencing Nigeria as one of the markets Sun Exchange has researched.
There are several well-funded solar energy startups operating in Africa’s top economic and tech hubs, such as Kenya and Nigeria. In East Africa, M-Kopa sells solar hardware kits to households on credit then allows installment payments via mobile phone using M-Pesa mobile money. The venture is is backed by $161 million from investors including Steve Case and Richard Branson.
In Nigeria, Rensource shifted from a residential hardware model to building solar-powered micro utilities for large markets and other commercial structures.
Nigeria’s Rensource raises $20M to power African markets by solar
Sun Exchange operates as an asset free model and operates differently than companies that install or manufacture solar panels.
“We’re completely supplier agnostic. We are approached by solar installers who operate on the African continent. And then we partner with the best ones,” said Cambridge — who presented the startup’s model at TechCrunch Startup Battlefield in Berlin in 2017.
“We’re the marketplace that connects together the user of the solar panel to the owner of the solar panel to the installer of the solar panel.”

Sun Exchange generates revenues by earning margins on sales of solar panels and fees on purchases and kilowatt hours generated, according to Cambridge.
In addition to expanding in Africa, the startup looks to expand in the medium to long-term to Latin America and Southeast Asia.
“Those are also places that would really benefit from from solar energy, from the speed in which it could be deployed and the environmental improvements that going solar leads to,” said Cambridge.

First Bitcoin ATM for Cape Town

First Bitcoin ATM for Cape Town
So the other day I ended up, by coincidence, finding Cape Town's first Bitcoin ATM. Apparently it just got installed and is all up and going. South Africa is again on the front line of new innovative technology :D

Shining A Profitable Light On Plastics — Sun Exchange Announces An Opportunity to Earn From Solar Powering the South African Plastics Industry

We are pleased to announce that the crowd-sale is now open for a new 473kW solar project to power Cape Town-based post-consumer recycled plastics (rPET) bottles manufacturer, Nioro Plastics.
Sun Exchange has won several awards and broad recognition for its innovative fintech platform and for promoting sustainable business practises by connecting conscientious capital to commercial solar projects. Nioro Plastics will be the largest Sun Exchange crowd-sale to date, and will focus on minimising negative environmental impacts of the plastics industry.
The global population’s increasing use of single use plastic items such as bottles and packaging is garnering much public attention following recent headlines and studies on the matter. For example, a much-applauded recent edition of National Geographic, revealed how hundreds of millions of tonnes of plastics are entering our oceans each year, threatening wildlife with potential catastrophic impact on the entire food chain. “Plastics aren’t inherently bad, it’s what we do, or don’t do, with them that counts,” said Sylvia Earle, National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence.
https://preview.redd.it/t83mgvywbd111.jpg?width=492&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=dd2141dea6ea599f2f4caedc7714748fd50c11d7
The good news is that much of the plastic we use is 100% recyclable. Thanks to the ongoing campaigning efforts of organisations such as PETCO, South Africa is one in of the top countries globally for collecting and recycling PET, which is predominantly used to make drinking bottles.
However, electricity is still required to re-purpose recycled materials, and while this process is powered by fossil fuels, the industry can hardly claim to be a sustainable ‘cyclical’ solution.
Enter Sun Exchange, the “AirBnB for solar panels,” which enables South Africans and global citizens to generate an income stream powered by the sun in just a few clicks. Through the Sun Exchange platform, practically anyone can buy solar cells installed onto the roof of Nioro Plastics, which are leased to give the plastic producer low-cost access to clean energy for a period 20 years. This presents a unique opportunity for individuals to put their money to work and earn income while promoting clean energy and sustainability in one of South Africa’s fastest growing industries.
The project also highlights how manufacturers and companies of all sizes, across industries and geographies, can leverage Sun Exchange’s innovative platform to go solar with no upfront cost and minimise their energy costs and carbon footprint.
“We encourage the use of recycling and certainly having some of the energy required for the production of these plastic bottles being solar-driven would be a very good and positive thing,” said Simeon Penev, Managing Director, Nioro Plastics. “It’s a good investment for the people leasing solar cells, because after all they will be making money!”

How Sun Exchange Monetises Sunshine

Sun Exchange has won global recognition for its disruptive approach to solar finance. The company won the Mondato Award for Social Impact in Sub-Saharan Africa and has been named the best Blockchain Business In Africa at the African Fintech Awards for the past two years running. The United Nations Development Program also recently selected Sun Exchange to pilot blockchain-based solar finance in Moldova.
The Sun Exchange approach to “monetising sunshine” can be broken down in four key phases:
“Nioro Plastics and Sun Exchange are setting a global precedent for the use of solar power and sustainable practices in the plastics industry in South Africa and beyond,” said Abraham Cambridge, CEO & Founder, Sun Exchange. “Anyone interested in conscious capital should participate in the crowd sale and capture the opportunity to earn money while doing good and promoting clean power, all of which can be done with the click of a button through TheSunExchange.com.”

The Crypto-Economy Opportunity & SUNEX Token Sale

Because Sun Exchange gives users the option to make payments and/or receive rental income in cryptocurrency, it also creates an accessible avenue for cryptocurrency first-timers. In fact, 75% percent of Sun Exchange users in South Africa opt to receive their solar cell rental payments in cryptocurrency.
Currently, Sun Exchange users can choose to receive rental payments in Bitcoin (BTC) or their local currency. Sun Exchange also recently introduced SUNEX, its own digital rewards token, which can be earned to get discounts on the Sun Exchange marketplace and can staked into a ground-breaking solar project insurance fund.
The SUNEX Network Token is currently available for purchase through a public token sale event which will run through July 31. More details on the SUNEX Token are available on the Sun Exchange token sale website: https://tse.thesunexchange.com/

Meridian Fund Series [Minimum investment 100,000 USD]
The Meridian Fund Series is composed of three index funds which track the top 10 crypto-currency assets by market capitalization. Each fund option has a variable contingency for cash allocation. Please see the links below for more information:
C10 Hedged
C10 is a fund offered by Invictus, composed of the top 10 crypto-currency assets by market capitalization. Through a hedging mechanism, this fund offers greater drawdown protection for investors who may be more risk adverse. The fund is open-ended, and available to purchase through the Invictus Capital portal. Additionally, the use of margin-lending is designed to reduce fees.
FAQ can be found here.
Invictus Margin Lending Fund
The Invictus Margin Lending Fund offers investors the ability to take advantage of the volatile nature of the cryptocurrency market without risking direct exposure. The fund aims to maximize interest income on USD and USD equivalents with zero anticipated drawdown risk. Returns have a low or negative correlation to the S&P500, VIX, GLD and TNX — making for an excellent portfolio diversification tool. The fund targets compounded interest returns of 10 to 25% p/a net of fees on USD (and USD backed cryptocurrencies such as TUSD). This target should not be used as a prediction of performance. Investors will have access to daily performance reporting via the website and an API.
Emerging Markets Solar Fund
The Emerging Markets Solar Fund aims to earn healthy returns whilst contributing to global clean energy production. The Fund provides investors with an opportunity to raise living standards in emerging markets, provide access to modern energy services, reduce global reliance on fossil fuels and offset their carbon emissions. The Emerging Markets Solar (“EMS”) Fund has teamed up with a launch partner, the Sun Exchange, to initiate the Fund. The Sun Exchange is a US-domiciled company operating out of Cape Town, South Africa and is the world’s first global, peer-to-peer, solar-cell micro-leasing online marketplace. They have a strong presence in the African market and have an impressive track record to date. Check out the fund via the Litepaper linked below!
Invictus Gold Plus Fund
Gold has been favored and fought over by humans for thousands of years. With scarce supply and unwavering demand, the unmistakable precious metal has remained central to man’s concept of money and the preservation of wealth. Despite gold's initial sell-off in the wake of coronavirus fears, if history is to be a guide then the precious metal is poised for significant growth given the immense increase in money supply by global reserve banks (at this stage $2 trillion in the US alone) in an effort to buoy consumer demand. Invictus Capital presents our latest fund - the Invictus Gold Plus Fund - an open-ended fund that tracks the underlying gold price and earns an additional yield on your investment. The fund’s objective is to outperform gold as a long-term benchmark. The Fund will be held predominantly in gold-backed tokens, namely Tether Gold (XAUT) and PAX Gold (PAXG), with a small portion invested in our Margin Lending Fund (IML) for 24/7 liquidity purposes. The targeted outperformance will be accomplished by taking advantage of arbitrage opportunities and utilizing our proprietary software to margin lend the underlying tokens on platforms such as Bitfinex, expanding on the success and experience gained from operation of our IML fund. For reference, margin lending rates on Tether Gold haved spiked into the double digits in terms of annualized returns (25% APR as of 26/3/2020) due to the recent surge in trading activity.
Invictus Bitcoin Alpha Fund
Invictus Capital is proud to present our Bitcoin Alpha Fund (IBA), an open-ended fund that is always long on Bitcoin (BTC), and aims to outperform it by utilizing options and lending strategies to offer both downside protection and yield. The Fund will have long BTC exposure, and it will utilize OTM put options as a protective mechanism which allows BTC downside to be capped at a maximum of 10% of the US dollar value of the Fund per month. Significant Bitcoin gains are made during any period of drawdown exceeding 10%, and IBA has, historically, strongly outperformed its benchmark of BTC.
Bitcoin enjoys a first-mover advantage as well as substantial brand recognition, and it remains a popular investment choice for new market entrants. In historical terms Bitcoin has demonstrated low correlation to major asset classes such as equities, bonds and commodities. It can therefore offer superior risk-adjusted returns compared to more traditionally-oriented portfolios. A key aspect of Bitcoin is its scarcity and it can thus translate to a store of value for investors. With a current market capitalization of less than 5% of gold, there is significant room for Bitcoin to capture a larger share of global wealth. Bitcoin's property of scarcity can also serve as a bulwark against the inflationary pressures faced by fiat currencies and other risks associated with the traditional financial system. The IBA Fund offers the benefits of Bitcoin with reduced volatility - a concern which acts as a barrier to entry for many investors. In addition:
Perseus
Perseus is a secure, end-to-end ICO raise platform. Perseus was developed by Invictus Capital to assist projects with their raise process in an efficient manner. Though often associated with the Hyperion Fund, any project can apply for this service.
Perseus offers front-end, back-end, business, legal, technical, as well as marketing services. Projects can customize according to their requirements.
On the front-end, Perseus provides a secure investment portal, including KYC/AML processes. This portal caters to different languages and currencies. Funds are received securely and stored cold, with user-specific information according to their investment history.
On the back-end, analytics and reconciliation reports are available. This is in addition to other administrative and wallet tools.
Business services can include assistance with exchange listings, advisors, community development, and ICO strategy. Perseus can also assist with roadmap and tokenomic planning.
In terms of legal services, this extends to the drafting of agreements (such as SAFTs) and the creation of contractual terms.
Technical services encompass the development and auditing of smart contracts, token issuance and security pen-testing.
On the marketing side of things, this relates to content creation and dissemination, community management, brand consulting, campaigning, as well as general strategy.
Perseus brings value to the blockchain ecosystem, and increases the chances of partner success. Please find FAQ regarding Perseus here.

17 Organizations Promoting Regenerative Agriculture Around the Globe

Transitioning to more sustainable forms of agriculture remains critical, as many current agriculture practices have serious consequences including deforestation and soil degradation. But despite agriculture’s enormous potential to hurt the environment, it also has enormous potential to heal it. Realizing this, many organizations are promoting regenerative agriculture as a way to not just grow food but to progressively improve ecosystems.
Drawing from decades of research, regenerative agriculture uses farming principles designed to mimic nature. To build healthy soils and fertile, thriving agro-ecosystems, this approach incorporates a range of practices like agroforestry and well-managed grazing. Benefits of these practices include richer soil, healthier water systems, increased biodiversity, climate change resilience, and stronger farming communities.
To celebrate the ongoing work of individuals and organizations dedicated to healing agro-ecosystems around the globe, Food Tank is highlighting these 17 organizations building a global grassroots movement for better agriculture.

The Monster, the Return (Part 1)

Original Transgression Here
Fact: There are eleven recognized sub-species of Tiger. Five are now extinct.
Fact: The Siberian Tiger is the largest sub-species. Males average between 400 and 675 lbs. The largest wild specimen weighed in at 845lbs.
Bengals can be close, their weights overlap, and since there’s more of them in closer proximity to humans there’s more likely to be…incidents. Tigers have been known to consume close to 90lbs of meat at one time. The best estimate is an adult tiger kills and eats a deer sized prey animal about once a week. However, they have been known to take cows and elephant calves.
The Champawat Tigress had 436 recorded kills. I say recorded because it very likely killed many more people. You see the smart man-eaters, they start slow; they’re secretive. They usually start out of desperation, but once they realize how easy it is, they can’t stop.
I wonder… do you think they get a thrill out of the terror they inflict? I have to believe they do. I mean it can’t be just the act right? Tons of animals surplus kill. Sorry, for you animal lovers out there, it’s the technical term that means killing for fun. From insects to great apes, lots of animals kill other animals for no apparent reason than the thrill of it. They exert massive amounts of energy into taking the life of other creatures. Not for food, not for territory, some of them even torture the other animals first.
The Champawat Tigress’ legend grew so large that after Jim Corbett tracked and killed her, they made him a holy man. Corbett killed several other infamous man hunters with his 7mm Mauser (That’s .275 Rigby for you Brits, I haven’t forgotten about you Deadman Talking). That rifle is still on display, revered by the locals in India. Truth be told I envy Jim Corbett. Picking up traveling the world hunting monsters. Sounds like quite the life to me.
Oh I’m sorry… You all wanted a story about Dogman right? Wanted to get your fix of Wooly-Booger before trundling off to bed. Well, all in good time. If you want to know so badly, just skip down a bit. Right now I have some business to attend to.
First I have to get somethings off my chest, I feel the need to clarify somethings for you: 1) I am incredibly disappointed in the OP (Bick) for such a judgmental title. “The Monster” is really hurtful. I thought we understood each other better than that.
2) To those of you saying, the name should have been “Bait”: if I had known the OP was going to share something I thought we had discussed in CONFIDENCE, or I had written the story; I agree. Bait would have been a better title. If only because “Air headed female Millennial finally has a purpose” seems a bit wordy. Plus, if I had written it I would have spent a lot more time on my rifles; no one really wanted to hear the yapping of that self-absorbed twit anyway.
3) Some of you are under the mistaken impression that the OP is my girlfriend, sorry… was my girlfriend. This is incorrect. The OP is a friend of mine. One of the few I have, so for him to betray me like that, well; I might just have to plan another hunting trip.
I mean can you imagine. What if he had shared enough details and one of you started hunting my honey-hole. Unbelievable. The balls on this guy.
4) If you haven’t figured it out by now this is being dictated. BickisMyPen’sname agreed to dictate this and the rest of the story in part for penance for breaking faith. I SHOULDN’T HAVE to tell him that stories shared between US are confidential unless I EXPLICITLY state otherwise.
“So Mr. BickisMyPen’sname, what do you have to say for yourself?”
“Please don’t make me write this, you know how much I hate getting sucked into other people’s stories.”
“TELL THEM!!”
“I’m sorry I told them about your hunting trick. It won’t happen again.”
“And??”
“And, I will dictate this word for word just like you wanted. I will finish the story telling them of your great hunting exploits.”
“And??”
“Aw c’mon man, really?”
“AND??”
“And as penance for breaking faith, I will tell everyone my secret for catching… Really? I wouldn’t say insane… Fine fine. I will tell everyone my secret for catching insane amounts of trout in Northern Michigan, and (sigh). I will give XXXXX (redacted) directions and also lead him to said fishing hole for trout. Good enough?”
“Well?”
“Natural Scent Powerbait and Crawlers. It’s like Trout crack.”
“Ha! I knew you were stacking the deck. There now, not so bad. You’re my boy! Don’t look so glum. After this we’ll hit a Meijer, grab a bite, and take few days to go catch a limit of trout. You can navigate us up to that trout pond. I might even tell you about my latest hunt, you can tell me what happened to that attractive you couple I read about. Yeah, it’s fine, let’s get back to it; I want to get through this quick. I can hear the rods calling me.”
Now that that’s out of the way, some of you (looking at you ziplockzzz) have accused me of being a psychopath. In reality, I am a more probably a high functioning sociopath. But, if you think I’m bad, imagine being friends with this guy. He’s so obsessed with horror, he goes around collecting stories from people, and gets off knowing he’s actually made people scared. Good guy, but maybe a bit of a screw loose. Or heck, maybe I've got one loose, the Dogmen sure like to get off by trying to scare people. I’m just here trying to do what I do, and so is he.
“Btw, XXXXX (Bickismypensname) you can keep your original title. You did promise all those people a (he’s making air quotes folks) “proper” ending.”
Lulz (sic), I don’t know... I thought it was it was the natural ending. It was after all, the last thing she said into the phone before screaming off into the night. I mean, maybe not the ending people were expecting, but it was pretty final. Really surprised how many of the people listening to the story didn’t pick up on the fact that your story was the message was transcribed from the audio recording on her phone. Of course I took the phone, I couldn’t have someone accidentally catching on to my trick now could I? That was until ol’ diarrhea of the keyboard over here started blabbing to everyone. Ugh, she was so wordy too, I bet you didn’t have to do much punch up before you put that one out did you? I took the phone in order to sever the primary evidence chain. Habeas Corpus (produce the body). As far as I know, she’s just another 411 statistic. But, a sharper than average police detective with that in hand might have made my life difficult for a little while.
You know why she didn’t remember exactly how we met? Because I set it all up that’s why! It was super easy too! I really ought to send Michael Eisner and whoever else is at Disney a big fucking thank you card for pretty much putting out a playbook on how to hunt…sorry attract certain women. In this age of entitled self-absorbed over sharing (he’s giving me a pretty mean look) princesses, it was ridiculously easy. You know the hardest part for me? Finding one that wasn’t such a freaking “Bambi-ite”. For real people, nature isn’t green; Nature is BLOOD RED. If you’re reading Dogmen stories I hope you have a good grip on that, cause (sic) nobody’s coming to save you. EVERYTHING in nature kills and eats everything else. Why should people be any different? Times get tough, Bambi eats thumper. Cryptids need to eat too, why not a readily available food supply? To be honest, I think they’re more territorial anyway. You want to lure one out? Want to piss it off enough to hunt or trap it? Better figure out a way to make it so mad it can’t think straight and comes after you, or a handy assistant as the case may warrant.
Some of you are wondering how I pay for all of this? Well it’s not as hard as you think. Step 1 is find a lucrative niche, and Step 2 is to capitalize. Engineers do make pretty good money. I’m exceptionally financially fit thanks to several lucrative patent rights and some smart investing (Thanks Bitcoin).
Last thing, I am disappointed in some of the comments especially from the people listening. Overall, the reader’s comments were better. People reading it for themselves seemed to grasp it better than those who had it read to them. Pursuant to the rules of NoSleep, everything BickisMyPen’sname writes is quite true, it just doesn’t always happen to him. Sometimes he pieces the stories together from interviews, or diaries. Oftentimes he is one of the participants but he writes himself out. He’s made quite the hobby of trying to scare you, so I can understand why he would want to tell about my exploits after all. I hope you can appreciate the great lengths he goes to, to accurately describe and relate these events to you.
Let’s see, to sum it all up. Yes, she was the bait. The OP conveys true and original material. The story didn’t end in the middle, my friend the OP ended it there because that is where the recording on her phone ended. He knows the rest of the story, but he gets off on knowing you could be terrified that (more air quotes folks) “The Monster” is still out there and it could be coming for you.
That one isn’t, it was a rogue, a lone male; good size, not bad for my first cryptid. That one won’t be coming after anything, but there’s much worse things out there. There’s an Alpha Pack Leader up there that made me hire a construction crew to come out and armor up my cabin. Those of you familiar with “The Siege of Lockett Ranch” that shit ain’t(sic) going to be happening to me. Maybe at the end of my story I’ll tell the people how to fortify their homes. I do have to say, I’m glad I only had to tango with the one. If it had been that Alpha, or even if it had had a mate; well I don’t think I’d be here telling you the rest of this story right now.
In any case, let’s have some Scotch and get back to it. Jesus Christ! Ice and ginger ale in a fifteen year old single malt scotch; and you call me a Monster. Well never mind, just come on; people want to know about my dangerous game hunts.
Fact: In the past half century there has only been three recorded fatal predatory wolf attacks on humans.
Fact: The Beast of Gevauden is credited with 210 human attacks; 113 victims died, and 98 were devoured.
Though the beast was never identified it was described as a ‘Larger than Average Wolf’. It was said to be much larger than a wolf, with a reddish coloration and an unbearable smell, as well as teeth bigger than those of a normal wolf. Sound familiar?
It too was put down by a better than average hunter, Monsieur Jean Chastel. So really, you should be thanking me. France keeps the best records on this (wolf attacks), but the Norwegians aren’t far behind. A worldwide 2002 study by the Norwegian Institute of Nature Research showed that 90% of victims of predatory wolf attacks were children under the age of 18, especially under the age of 10. In the rare cases where adults were killed, the victims were almost always women.
Unfortunately, I didn’t exactly have somewhere where I could just grab up an orphan or two now could I? A diminutive female was next best option, and far less suspicious.
Now let me ask you: What do you think it means that wolves are credited with so few fatalities? Do you think these Apex predators that competed with us for food for millennia, and that survived with us through the last ice age, just gave up on attacking us? Do you really believe that wolves that continue to plague Eastern Europe and Asia, are somehow just so scared of Man that they leave us alone?
Few recorded kills means one of two things. Either it truly isn’t happening, or…they’re really good at it.
Fact: On average there are 90,000 missing persons in the USA at any given time.
Fact: Michigan has nearly twice as many missing people per capita as all of its neighboring states.
Fact: Dead people can’t file attack reports.
Chastel tracked The Beast of Gevauden into the mountains, its stomach still contained the remains of its last human kill. Corbett literally found the Champawat tigress by following the trail of blood and limbs from her latest victim; a teenaged girl. As prolific as those killer beasts were, it was these thoughts that made me wonder how much more prolific would their runs have been had they laid low? If the beasts were tactical enough to cover their tracks; like they were in the beginning, how long could they have gone on for? If they hadn’t grown so brazen, how many people could they have continued to prey upon?
Why am I telling you all of this? It’s because it was this line of thinking that lead me to hunting cryptids in the first place. It would be (is) insanely easy for something to prey on us. Dogmen, werewolves, vampires, reanimated corpses of every shape and variety, as I myself have demonstrated; it’s easy.
Well Alright, let’s get to the Dogman.
Let’s see it all started when I was feeling particularly bored. You see, as I mentioned before; I am financially well-endowed but not ludicrously so. Everyone has to know their limits. I had been working my way through the American Grand Slam when I realized how ridiculously bored I was. The hunts just weren’t holding the same thrill for me as they were before.
Let me interrupt your thoughts, this isn’t a segue into ‘The Most Dangerous Game’ I was just feeling a little under challenged. I had actually put up my rifles and was hunting brown bear with a traditional bow. The costs of repeat trips to Alaska getting onto bear and hunting a trophy was in the tens of thousands of dollars, and I just wasn’t feeling it. No matter how close I was to the massive creatures, no matter how dangerous they appeared, I just didn’t feel challenged.
How crazy is that, right? Here are the largest land predators on earth (or so I thought), and I’m armed with what is essentially a spring and a pointy stick. I don’t know. I guess something inside of me had broken. I still loved guns. I could talk all day about a beautiful Ruger Model 1 in .280 Remington that used to bring down all of the deer and one of the caribou species in North America. Or we could admire the 10 gauge Browning Gold I use to pass shoot snow geese and big Canadians (yup the same one I refit as a self-defense gun. If you think a 12 gauge has stopping power, try a 10 sometime; and hold on!). Would you like to hear about the .460 Weatherby I used to put down the Dogman? I bet you would. We’ll get there.
So there I was, feeling particularly bored. Our friend the OP here was out collecting material for some fresh nightmare, and so I just started surfing the web. I was bored with North America. Sure there was dangerous game, but I wanted something tumultuous. I wanted to pit myself against something that even with a rifle, it had a really good chance at taking me down.
So of course I started looking to Africa. Why not? I had the rifle for it. Not to brag, but the custom shop over at Weatherby does immaculate work. My .460 Weatherby Mag. It costs more than a lot of people’s cars. Weatherby put that cartridge out in 1957 and for almost thirty years it was the most powerful commercially available rifle in the world. It will stop a charging Cape Buffalo, trust me.
Still, something didn’t seem right. I wanted that trip to be something special, maybe the trip that would be my last big hurrah. I think a lot of it boiled down to I was having trouble finding ethical hunts. Now I know a lot of you are pretty incredulous about that, and I may be a lot of things; but I’m no poacher. What happened to XXXXX(Redacted) is many ways her own fault. Sure I’ll admit to putting her in some precarious situations, but all I did was make the offer; she acted it out every step of the way. I believe in fair chase. I didn’t want a canned hunt. I don’t shoot fish in a barrel, I didn’t want to go hunt something just to kill it. I wanted the thrill of the chase, especially when I knew that something might stalk me back.
When I couldn’t find something that seemed like a good fit, for whatever reason I started looking at South American hunts. I had been thinking of grabbing XXXXX (BickisMyPensName) and doing some bird hunting with him if work could afford to let me get away. I get eight weeks of paid vacation per year, but it’s rare for me to use even half of it.
I made some phone calls and soon enough I was on my way down to South America. I had converted an old break action H&R 20 gauge to fire tranquilizer dart sabots using ultra low powder rounds. Luckily, I had very little trouble getting the firearm through customs. That hasn’t always been the case. As an American you never know quite how much freedom you have until you start to visit different parts of the world. The OP is also quite the accomplished hunter and doing some wing shooting together might have been enough to get out of my doldrums. You never know what kind of weird shit you’ll get into with this guy around
I was looking through sites when I came across something interesting. A jaguar was attacking livestock in Uruguay. Seems like the locals didn’t know what do since they wanted to protect the feline, but they also didn’t want it eating their livestock. Personally, once it had taken something from me, I would have three S’d the situation and been done with it, but they’re endangered so I can sort of see why they would want to keep it breeding.
When I arrived at the village, I checked my gear and went to a little clearing and set up some targets on the edge of town. This brought no end of amusement to the locals. Seeing a guy hold one inch groups with a break action 20 gauge at 50yds was pretty impressive it seems. To be honest, I think my eyes are starting to go, too much time at a desk in front of a computer screen. As a teen using the same iron sites, the villagers would have seen just a large ragged hole. Oh well, none of us live forever, and it was close enough. If I didn’t get within 30 yards with these rounds it wasn’t going to matter, the dart might just bounce off.
Uruaguay has fairly decent gun laws, and some of the villagers were better equipped for jaguar hunting than I was. Then again I wasn’t going out to kill it. Some of the more brash young men wanted me to show them how I had made the tranquilizer loads and to show them how to make some of their own. I showed them. Really it was no skin off my ass, so why the hell not. I think maybe it was a good way to impress the Senoritas.
Whatever the case, I showed them. I took a meal with them, and then I stayed in a guest house that had been set aside for me. I wanted to get some sleep so that I could be well rested for tomorrow. Jaguars are mostly nocturnal and I wanted to scout where it had been haunting during the day. At dinner the locals had been telling me it had been getting braver. It had been spooking horses and they have some smaller cattle down there that had recently calved, and were concerned the new baby cows would be too delicious for the predatory cat to stay away from.
All of that could wait until the morning. Now it was time to try and rest. I wasn’t going to be much good to anyone if I was a zombie and too out of it to track. The locals said they had some dogs, but I really wasn’t about to trust some untrained curs with my life. For all I know they would start barking and scare the cat off before I could get in range.
I laid in the bunk provided for me pulled my hat over my eyes and slowly drifted into a light sleep. I must have only dosed for a couple of hours when I heard a piercing scream. I rushed to the noise, gun in hand, a small group of the locals had converged on the attack site.
The big cat had escalated, skipping from calves to kids. A young girl had been taken. The villagers wanted to go track it down, but were fearful of going after the cat in the darkness, and fearful that even after attacking a girl the Government would not look kindly on them hunting and killing the cat.
Suddenly, all eyes were on me.
“I will go after it.” I proclaimed to the group. “There is little hope the child is still alive, but if she is, I will bring her back.”
And with that I started into the jungle. It was worst possible timing. I was dead on my feet exhausted. The animal had every possible advantage. I was outmatched and out maneuvered. I was loving it! I was running on pure adrenaline. The only thing keeping me tethered was the yapping of the dogs around me.
The villagers had released them thinking they might be of some aide to me. Two medium size dogs not even lab size and one small one basically a toy breed. I felt safer already…
I had no misconceptions that the child was still alive. Jaguars attack from behind. Unlike other big cats they crush the brain or the base of the spine when they attack, no suffocation, no chance she was hanging on. Nevertheless, I followed the dogs into the night. The air in the pitch black jungle was thick and heavy. Strange Calls echoed thru the night. The two larger dogs ahead of me suddenly cut ahead just as I got to a little clearing nearing the edge of the water.
Not good. Jaguars are excellent swimmers. They eat the damn caiman if they’re in the mood. The small dog next to me had stopped barking and had instead opted to stand beside me shivering. I was about to make my move to the water’s edge when I heard it.
The first dog went down. There was some brief thrashing and snarls, I can only imagine that the other dog prolonged the suffering of his partner by another couple seconds or so before the lithe attacks of the cat brought it down. With his partner down, the second dog didn’t have much of a chance. I heard its snarls for a bit longer before the jaguars screams of triumph filled the night.
I was now alone with a rat dog in the South American jungle with a killer jaguar prowling around.
It. Was. Exhilarating.
The feeling was tremendous. I crouched down against the nearest thick tree and cocked the hammer on the shotgun. The trembling excuse for a dog now huddled up to me pissing itself. There was no way out.
The jaguar had us completely surrounded. It could attack from all sides or from above. I could feel its presence more than see or hear it. Death knew I was there, just not my exact position. Any movement from my position would provoke an attack. Staying throughout the night would mean it would wait until I was too tired and weary and then attack. The adrenaline running through my veins was powerful but it wasn’t limitless.
That’s when it struck me. He was full, and still stalking me. He wasn’t attacking out of hunger, at least not anymore. The girl and the two dogs would have been meal enough if that had been the case. No, this one was territorial. The dogs and I had invaded its territory. It had found us with the noise we had made, and then closed in until its night vision gave it the advantage.
I stood up to get a better vantage. The tree wouldn’t provide much protection but hopefully it would cover my ass long enough for me to figure out how to use its aggression against it. I had to shift my weight to stand up. Fortunately, I stepped on the paw of the dog wannabe.
It gave a pitiful yelp. As if on que, the Jaguar roared in response. The deep throaty roar into a snarl silenced all of the other night life around me.
That was it! The dog would give me the edge I needed. Sorry pup. I stepped on its paw again. The pitiful thing yelped again, but it wouldn’t leave my side. As if on cue the answering roar returned. This time 20 yds away on the opposite side. Damn! It was moving so fast. It was time to make my move.
I pulled out road flares I keep in my hunting vest. I always have them in case to signal or start a fire. I ignited one then stepped on the dog’s tail.
Roar! Crack-hiss! Every time it roared from a new position, I lit and threw out a flare in that direction. The bright lights might not hinder its night vision, but it might give me enough light to see for my single shot. I made a half circle around us and then gave the dog a final step. It whimpered hideously not daring to fight back or even leave.
The flares left one path of darkness between us and the jaguar. I turned and walked towards the water. I crouched waiting for the feline hunter to come for me. I sat there motionless. My gun raised, I scanned the embankment and the water for the sure sign that Death was approaching.
My breath was shallow, cold sweat dripped all over my body.
Something wasn’t right.
If it was coming this way. What was going on? I had covered all the routes hadn’t I? Then it hit me, as soon as the thought rose half formed in my mind I swiveled and fired toward the tree tops.
Jaguars are great climbers and can pounce from above.
Fact: Most tranquilizer darts take ten minutes to act.
Fact: Most tranquilizer darts use a ketamine cocktail specially measured for the size of the animal.
Fact: I am a fucking brilliant engineer and I wasn’t going to trade my life for some stupid jungle cat that wanted a piece of my ass.
My cocktail is equal parts, sedative, tranquilizer, and paralytic. It works faster than you can say ‘Hey does this smell like chloroform?’
Fast enough to save my life, but not fast enough to keep the claws of that thing from tearing gashes in my arms. It would take weeks to heal. My heirloom shotgun… not so lucky. There was no way that my grandfather could know that one day after he gave it to my father; my father would give it to me and years later it would save my life. The damn cat’s jaws nearly crushed it. It certainly pinched it tightly enough that I couldn’t work the release lever to break it open. I now had a club and an unconscious jaguar.
Fucker must have weighed 250lbs easy. I’ve had worse drags but none came to mind as tugged on the rope tied around that bastard’s throat. Hot sticky blood occasionally would trickle out of my arm wounds. All in all, I was less than a half mile from the village. I’ve dragged deer for miles up hill and didn’t feel as exhausted as I returned to the village.
When I got to the village I found the mother and father of girl. I gave them my hunting knife, and pointed them at the cat. They had the right to first refusal after all. Her mother, her mother stabbed it while wailing. I passed out.
Lucky me, they treated me with real medicine. Nice stinging iodine in my open cuts. I swear if I hadn’t been unconscious I would have died of shock. Two and half days I laid there barely moving. If I had been one of the villagers I would have taken bets.
When I woke up, I was ravenous. They had memorialized the girl and “peace” had returned to the village. I didn’t see her parents nor any sign of the jaguar. I’m guessing they figured out how to shoot shovel and shut up after all.
That night there was a feast, they had slaughtered a calf for the whole village. Asado, I think it was called. It was excellent. I forgot how good cooking over real wood tastes. Afterwards, the village witchdoctor, for lack of a better term, made iowaska. I’ve never tripped before, it was quite the experience. I saw things that I’ve never known. The shaman guided me. He showed me things I could never dream of. At the height of my journey, I saw them. Cryptids, creatures and beasts of all sorts. Mainly, I saw Dogmen. I saw packs of them. I saw them in places I knew and places I didn’t. Places I’ve hunted since I was a child. I floated just beyond their perception, though; they may have sensed me. I saw myself fighting the jaguar while I saw the Dogmen. That’s when I knew. No more boredom for me.
I had to hunt Cryptids. I had to hunt a Dogman.
