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…

  1. It’s a bat. Some bats can be quite large and they have fleshy looking faces , and they can climb on the sides of walls. Some people who don’t have a lot of x experience with wild life are not very good at describing animals.My wonderful father was just such a person. ( God bless his soul. ) One day when I was still living at home he called me to come and look at something in a garbage can out back.He said there was some kind of a critter.I looked down and it was a baby oppussum , but as far as my dad was concerned it was a creature from outer space.For several years now I’ve been telling people to take a pic. with their smart phone , don’t even try to describe it to me over the phone.Over 90 % of the time witness descriptions are nothing like the animal once you’ve seen it yourself. ; sorry that’s just the way it is.Lol ! : )
