REPORT RECEIVED FROM: The GCBRO Online Report Submission Form.
REPORT POSTED TO GCBRO WEB SITE ON: April 2, 2013
Not sure but mostly at night.
Henderson County, Tennessee
OBSERVED: Although I live in Middle Tennessee now, I am originally from West Tennessee. Our farm borders the Natchez Trace State Park. All of my life since I was old enough to understand, we would hear what I now realize are vocalizations. The vocalizations we heard sound identical to vocalizations that I have heard on different programs about bigfoot. My Dad always thought perhaps we were hearing some sort of cat. However, the only wild cats in the area are bobcats and I have never heard one sound like what we used to hear. Now, my parents are deceased and my brother lives in the homeplace. I visited there this past Christmas, and we heard the vocalizations again. Also, a couple with a small child reported to the BFRO about a possible sighting and footprints they found. It was checked out but nothing determined. However, from what I could find out, they continue to be bothered by something that is bipedal and walks very heavy. Tracks continue to be seen in and around their home, which also borders the park.
My father, in the late sixties,
had a scare with what I think was probably a bigfoot. He was plowing
in what we called "the bottom" and had stopped to eat his lunch.
He heard something walking pretty heavily in the woods and saw something
that was walking upright and was extremely hairy. The animal bellowed
and the sounds were identical to what we were hearing at night. He
became scared when the animal began to growl quite loudly. He got
back on the tractor and drove home. I remember him telling my mother
about the incident and that what we were hearing vocalize at night was
not any kind of cat, but something that was walking upright and was huge.
He also asked her to keep us kids close to the house and watch us at all
times we were outside. A few years later, I-40 was built right through
our property and the vocalizations stopped for a while. Now, they
are back and are heard only at night. The sounds make the hairs stand
up on the back of your neck and arms.
DESCRIPTION OF CREATURE:
Vocalizations for years at night. Footprints and noises. According
to my Dad, it was a huge animal in both height, weight and girth..
ACTIVITIES OF WITNESS:
My Dad was a farmer.
People in the area report activity and footprints they found. Vocalizations
are beginning to be heard again.
HISTORICAL OR NEIGHBORING AREAS:
It occurred for years at night but ceased
somewhat when I-40 was built through the area. The sound of the traffic
may have drowned out the sound of any vocalizations.
