One of my favorite pass times is reading old news paper clippings, mainly cryptozoology themed ones. I love the writing style and how they described these encounters. It gives me a chuckle.
This one is from the great state of New York, The Long Island Star reported this encounter on, September 16th, 1818. And he is once again called a “wild man”. He is described as bending forward when running, hairy—and the heel of the foot narrow, spreading at the toes.” Very interesting description. The bending forward is a new one on me.
I’d love to find some of these old clippings transcribed because many just aren’t legible, anymore, and you definitely don’t want to miss any of these fun descriptions
