"Christine Van Acker, 17, sports a black left eye after an encounter with what was described as a huge hairy monster who jumped on the side of her car and beat her head against the door until she fainted. State police said that 16 persons have reported sighting the monster in the last two months. One witness drew the drawing at left. Hundreds of rain soaked hunters tramped the woods and fields Monday near Monroe, Mich., in search of the 'beast'."Coincidentally, this was not long after persons in Springfield, Missouri began reporting that the Elusive Urban Skunk Ape was leaving flowers on doorsteps. Obviously, some cryptids are nicer than others.
