1871 Newspaper Article - The Tennessee Wildman

I was sent this about a week ago by T.L. He told me "This was in the oddities room at a Virginia Beach antique shop." So I thought I would share it with everyone. I know the report has been around for a while but I can't recall seeing the actual newspaper article. Yes, there are some digital versions of the paper, but this appears to be of the actual print version. Which is kind of cool.

Here is what the article say:

"Friday May 5, 1871 

The Jackson Tennessee Whig Newspaper of the 13th instant says: "We learn that between Sobby and Crainsville on what is called Piney, in McNairy County, TN a strange and frightful being has been observed for several weeks. 


He is said to be seven feet high and possessed of great muscular power. His eyes are unusually large and fiery red; his hair hangs in a tangle and matted mass below his waist, and his beard reaches below his middle. His entire body is covered with hair and his whole aspect is most frightful. He shuns the sight of them but approaches with wild and horrid screams of delight every woman who is unaccompanied by a man. 

He sometimes with great caution, approaches houses and should he see a man he runs away with astonishing swiftness, leaping the tallest fences with the ease of a deer, defying alike the pursuit of men and dogs. He has frightened several women by attempting to carry them off, as well as by his horrid aspect and the whole country around Sobby is in consternation. The citizens are now scouring the woods and are determined either to capture or drive off the monster."


Published in the Hagerstown Mail, Hagerstown Maryland Friday May 5, 1871"

As you can tell from the description of the creature, it sounds like Bigfoot. I just thought it was interesting and seeing what appears to be the actual print newspaper is kind of neat.

Thanks to T.L. for sharing it with us.

Thanks
