People reported seeing an animal covered with brown hair and with a face something like a monkey that walked upright like a man. Would disappear in brush when spotted. No size given. Called "the wildman," the story was believed to have been explained when very hairy all over but clothed man was found lurking in brush near Chillicothe, 235 miles away in mid August.
