The Beast-Man of Bowman’s Woods

Posted by: Nick Redfern on August 20th, 2015

On March 27, 1907, the Nevada-based Reno Evening Gazette newspaper ran a story with the very eye-catching title of “Wild Man Startles People of Kentucky.” The sub-title added even more to the eye-opening and jaw-dropping nature of the story: “Hairy Creature Seen by Farmhand, and Both Are So Scared That They Prepare to Run.” The story revealed a great deal, all of it astonishing and controversial…

“Information has been received here that the people in the country around Buena Vista, a village in Garrard County, are much excited over the reports that a wild man has high haunts in the Kentucky River hills near that place. A party is being organized to explore a cave where the creature is believed to have his lair and attempt to capture him.”
