Published a few days ago in the Charleston Express was the stories of some strange critters from Arkansas.
…one animal was about 5 inches shorter than the other, the larger being about 3 feet tall at the top of its shoulder. Both were about the color of a bobcat, with heads that seemed oversized for the bodies. The head and nose were noticeably more like a canine’s than a feline’s. According to the witness the most noticeable feature on the head was the animals’ ears. He stated the ears were unusually large for the size of the head. The ears were reportedly mule-like, about 6 inches long, with tufts of hair growing from their tips. He noted that the neck was also thick and muscular. He stated the animals had tails that were catlike, but longer than a bobcat’s and shorter than a cougar’s. He particularly noted the tails were rounded on the ends, and not pointed like a dog’s.
He said the animals possessed massive chests and very muscular front legs. Their back legs were noticeably shorter, causing the back to be sloped like that of a hyena. When the animals ran, he stated they “pushed off” using their front legs, landed on all four feet, and continued their travel in that springing fashion.
Apparently Bigfoot is not the only crytid running around in the woods and river bottomlands of Arkansas. Looks like the Fouke Monster has some company.
