"Bogging Out"

Films: The Legend of Boggy Creek (1972), Return to Boggy Creek (1977), Boggy Creek 2: And the Legend Continues (1985)

Alias: None

Type: Natural

Location: Forest

Height/Weight: That of an average human.

Affiliation: Neutral, leaning on Good

Summary: There is no cryptid more documented than the ape man. Bigfoot, Yeti, Yowie, whatever, big hairy primates are a big deal. Just ask the folks at Fouke, Arkansas.

History: In the swamps of Fouke, Arkansas, they say a missing link is afoot. It smells really bad, it doesn't like to be seen, and it's been a major nuisance by stealing livestock and occasionally lashing out at humans.

Notable Kills: Said to have jumped over a fence while holding two one-ton hogs for food.

Final Fate: Ever elusive, this creature has never been confirmed by the public to be real. It is though, and in its long life, it's saved a bunch of annoying kids, and has been reunited with its own son. Those who witnessed that one agreed that its existence best be kept secret.

Powers/Abilities: Both very strong and agile.

Weakness: Anything conventional.

Scariness Factor: 2.5-Don't provoke this thing. Okay, also don't show this thing any of your animals, or it might get hungry. Not the worst ape man, but at the same time, not one you go picking on.

Trivia: -The Fouke monster, or the Southern Sasquatch, is a true cryptid in real life, and just about everything from the original film is taken from word of mouth regarding its behavior/appearance.

-This film was originally titled, "Tracking the Fouke Monster".

Surprised nobody caught him due to smell.

And do we really need to disturb them?

The fearsome combination of man and throwback.

Name one tree in his domain with a calling card like that.

Hey, he figured out how to use a boat.
