Ozark Mountain Daredevil?

Monday 19th July 2021

Bigfoot images are like buses. You wait for ages for one to turn up, and they’ll turn up on the same day. This looks like a simulacrum to me, but what do I know?

The witness was out hunting and saw a deer when…

“The deer stood there for about a minute or two mostly looking to the north and east, then turned directly south and walked away. Shortly after this moment I heard a screaming sound coming from the east. The sound had a human quality to it and sounded more angry than distressed. I immediately thought my brother-in-law was hollering for some reason as he was in that direction but chose not to contact him via radio. There were several short 10 second screams lasting a little over a minute and then stopped. I sat there completely perplexed having never heard a sound like that before. After this I noticed the conspicuous absence of any sound or movement in the forest. Prior to this the woods had been filled with the sound of twittering birds and chattering squirrels. After this, the forest was dead quiet. This was the most eerie part of the whole event…”

This does sound remarkably similar to what happened to me at Bolam Lake in Northumberland back in 2003, but please do not take this as an endorsement or otherwise.
