Indiana, Eighteen Inches, Hundred Percent discussed on Coast to Coast AM with George Noory

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Which is there is a lot of obscure things in southern Indiana I've spoken to I've known three people have seen a big foot in southern Indiana and this lady told me a story that had to do with those little creatures we use read about only the school in school like in fairy tales and stuff anyway she now dishes about ten years old she had this bike she is real proud of she was down by the river bridge and she heard something hissing or growling out she turned around and just on the other side of a log she described it as a little troll about eighteen inches to two foot tall and it looks better it growled opened its mouth those fangs drop down she said I love my bike but bye bye and the thing chaser for a little ways and then finally stopped but she said I rarely terror that story because just like a lot of people they don't like the ridicule that goes along with it so she heard about me and we're at a family function and she made a beeline for me to tell me this story she had no reason to lie and I didn't know if that would have been in amongst the things that your guest has sought out in the research and heard stories about okay and who's the first person along with Linda got for you mentioned because you're broke up a little bit there while black Blackburn okay great okay go head count yeah first of all you know while Linda both very good friends where we're very small group us you know those of us that this search for cryptid so we're kind of a technician there are a lot of that so yeah we're all good friends and we work together as far as your account thank you for sharing that back to the little foot thing Indiana house a version it's they're known as the puck what Jeez and that's based on a Delaware Indian name from sort of New England that there are sightings of park what these are legends the puck what he's I should say in in New England and Indiana and their describe just like you said a little troll type creatures I thought they might be a little bigger than eighteen inches are still or you know two feet maybe three feet or higher but you know that that in fact sounds like you know what your friends saw it is called a park why do you not I would personally placed that into the little foot category some type of little small diminutive hominid type thing would you put the leprechaun stories from the Ireland tradition and myths in the same category they may have a fall from other religions from Eastern Europe for example in Russia and Eastern Europe or something on the dome of full a witcher like basically leprechaun or or fairy tale creatures although they're much scarier and perhaps is the you know the legends migrated across Europe to western Europe they you know they may have a known to these little hobgoblins with you know more human like features and clothing and things like that but you know I I firmly believe that that you know behind every legend there is a grain of truth and behind the legend of the the leprechaun there may be some type of diminutive hominid like a little foot squeezing the rocky service traveling near Nashville Tennessee I Serra welcome to the program okay historically I have been a big but agnostic if you will I am from the mountains of north Georgia where you hear about big but all the time right and I have all over Georgia and parts of northern Florida and part of the the low country in here in South Carolina no has told me about Asian of their version of big but like what you're saying to me like a all right and they all call at one eight and I'm wondering if your dad has heard of spot eight I even though okay a group of friends in coffee county which is right above the Florida line that they all have these vinyl stickers on their back glasses of their cars and shrugs better just little small little eight working you know walking around little things and it's it's the one eight and they had it made because it's just a well known thing amongst their friends and their family members and their communities and then you know I'm doing this genealogical research and find my biological paternal grandfather and it turns out that the guy was like a big split hoaxer in Washington state in the seventies and you know that's one of the few things I can find you know about the guy was an article that confirms that and so yeah I just feel weird looking through the radio and I'm in the process now of moving from north Georgia in northern central gender fair where this white thing it so I'd like you know I felt like okay I have to call in now yeah I want to know if you've heard of it swamp yeah actually cryptozoologist Loren Coleman has theorized that there might be a and an actual upon Gedern eight he called them napes north American apes or swante Bates is another name sort of more like a chimpanzee type thing a quadruped in and much smaller than big foot but definite definitively and ate it moves around on all fours primarily it looks very ape like and those accounts may have gotten mixed up into big foot lord that is I think it's one together so a you know it really does boil down to how many different species of of hominids or or eight Sir would you believe there could be hunting around North America certainly in Florida you have to consider that there are a lot of eggs on it exotic animal collectors and you know the zoos and things like that in a I'm sure on occasion things like chimpanzees in around its hands of the skate when I was in the Florida's Florida's green form back in two thousand five we spoke to some park Rangers down there that that said that they had got collected accounts of chimpanzee looking things that were running around in the swamps there so yeah I think swampy to the possibility as I think it could be more of an eight type thing and you know again getting kind of mixed up in into the big foot lore and some of these creatures service middle school down and picked up a human and took them away what is a famous account of course of a gentleman named Albert Osman and he was a prospector and he cleaned it in nineteen twenty four up in British Columbia that he was kidnapped by a family of soft watches with us you know alone in the wilderness and they took him back to their lair and he finally managed to escape after a few days and that's probably the most famous account beyond that there's some native American accounts of of people being kidnapped by south watches and ultimately escaping as well but not too many of those stories what would people like Bob gambling the given when Patterson given one film guy what would he do if somebody approached him and said we want to give you a polygraph test where you take one I think Bob would be willing to do it something done yet well he's he's you know you have to consider that for many years as I said earlier he was kind of given the shaft in terms of the you know the financial end of that whole thing he disappeared for many years after the film was shot he basically sold all of his rights to the film he wouldn't do any media interviews for years and years and you know a lot of it just kind of left a bad taste is not because a lot of people would call him a hoaxer and different names and to my understanding it almost cost him his marriage so it's just in recent years these kind of gotten back into the field I will tell you this though if you sit down and listen to Bob tell the story which many hundreds of people now have done because he's been touring around the country talking about it for for the past two years you will not find a more credible Ersan more salt of the earth down to earth type the guy the Bodkin man I mean I I I doubt anyone could hear him tell the story of of how they got that film and not be a hundred percent convinced that he's just telling the truth he's just that sincere we had an individual came on the program and said that in the alien was looking through his door window and he took a picture of it it's kind of weird look more like a cut out to me but it was still strange anyways we put together a polygraph examiner and asked him if he would do it we paid for it and the guy the able polygraph test and he failed and then he came back to us and said he was on medication and that affected his personal results but but he failed the test let's go next to Walter in Allentown Pennsylvania Hey wild go ahead all right George shearing's greetings to you Mr ghara you too you too very knowledgeable very informed them that great conversation and also cheaters greetings to all

excrement at.
