NATCHEZ, Miss. (AP) – The police are investigating reports of a “huge, hairy creature” that reportedly was sighted by several Natchez residents.
Those who reported the sighting to police Monday night said the “almost human” creature growled at a dog and fled when a patrol car approached.
The police said they found large footprints, broken tree limbs and other evidence that something was in the area.
Three occupants of one house said they looked out and saw “a huge, hairy creature, well over six feet tall, and dark, barefoot and naked.” They said the creature walked with a limp.
