I spoke to a listener who is from Missouri. He said “This took place in the late 60’s and growing up around my grandparents farm my grandfather would tell us that we could hunt the property but we were not allowed to go into certain areas.
Finally one day my grandfather sat me down and told me the reason why I was not allowed to go into certain areas because of the wildman. No one said Bigfoot or Sasquatch at that time. He said some of these creatures are good and some of them are bad.
My grandparents both had doctorate degrees. My grandfather was the doctor for the area and one night he was called out to a home where a child had been injured. You have to remember during this time no one really had AC so the locals would have their windows open at night.
When my grandparents got to the property my grandmother went into to check on the child and there was a hairy arm in the window pushing the child around and the child was laughing. Like it was playing with him. My grandmother looked up and she heard this thing gasp and pull its arm back and it ran off into the night. My grandfather and the home owner went out with guns but the thing had run off. My grandmother had a great description of the creature and said the child was all scratched up. There is more to this encounter and I can go into it.
Years later I saw two of them while hunting. I told my grandfather about it and he had explained what to do if I ever ran into one. My grandfather knew more about these things than he said. He told me be careful who you tell about this because we do not want people to judge you”
