When it comes to the big hairy guy in the woods, most people are of the mind that Bigfoot is a salt of the earth creature, feet firmly planted on the ground. Well, on this episode, we talk about the Bigfoot that may have hitched a ride on a UFO.
For decades, hairy creatures have been associated with the UFO phenomenon. In 1954, Venezuela was besieged by short, stocky creatures, with glowing yellow eyes. This particular hairy humanoid was particularly aggressive, scratching many witnesses. The link between the two phenomena would become stronger in the early 70s after a series of sightings in Missouri, Illinois, Indiana and Pennsylvania.
On this episode Jordan Heath from Campfire: Tales of the Strange and Unsettling stops by to talk about Bigfoots that are able to disable cars with its hair, a strange case from 1912, and the strange case of George Kowalczyk, who may have been possessed by a Bigfoot?
