BEAST-OF-WHITEHALL-THE-ABAIR-ROAD-INCIDENT-OFFICIAL-POSTER

August, 1976: Three teens driving on an isolated stretch of road somewhere in the Adirondacks of Upstate New York have a brush with a bizarre creature. Standing over 7 feet tall and covered in hair, they referred to it as a “beast”. Hours later, Abair Road was crawling with local and state police.
