Miniature Bigfoot Encountered in Tennessee Cave

What is it with caves? In a sighting unrelated to the other day’s bizarre cave alien, a Tennessee woman claims to have encountered a “miniature version of ‘Bigfoot'” while exploring a cave in 2009, according to Cryptozoology News.

While exploring the cave with her husband, they came upon a strange animal “attached to the cave wall.” But upon closer inspection, this was no ordinary animal. Instead, according to the original report at The Crypto Crew, it was something terrifying: a bizarre creature with a hairless face, containing vaguely human features. It had brown  body hair and claws on paw-like hands and feet, and could climb the cave walls with amazing dexterity. The witness likened it to a smaller version of Bigfoot.

The cave in question is located on the woman’s own farm land, and you can see pictures of it in a video uploaded by The Crypto Crew. As for the creature, the woman didn’t have a chance to photograph it (“We both froze in the shock state and took in each others detail before I ran,” she says in the report), but after a later investigation she found an uncanny resemblance between the creature she saw and an illustration of a creature in an old document from 1696.

What is it? What was it doing in that cave? The investigation continues…
