On quite a few events, Hairy-man seekers have reported discovering curious creations in areas the place Hairy-man has been seen. Basically, they’re teepee-like constructions that seem to have been created by one thing with intelligence – and an excessive amount of power, too.
The latter is made abundantly evident by the truth that in lots of circumstances the branches of the bushes used to create these typically big constructions seem to have been wrenched off. In different circumstances, the branches seem to have been rigorously bent over and intertwined.
As for why Hairy-man would possibly interact in such curious habits, the theories are a number of. At first look, one would possibly assume they’ve been constructed to supply the beasts a level of shelter, and significantly so through the chilly winter months. In lots of circumstances, nonetheless, there doesn’t seem to have been any try made to create a cover or partitions. In different phrases, the constructions are open to the surroundings and all of its attendant harshness.
Different theories are extra intriguing: it has been speculated that, maybe, the teepees symbolize territorial markers, created by Hairy-man creatures to alert others of their form that they’re current within the space. They might even be a warning to man, to remain firmly away – though, after all, the obscure nature of the formations successfully means that only a few are of us are prone to perceive such a warning, by no means thoughts act upon it.
Regardless of the function of the Hairy-man teepees, it should be mentioned that they’re fairly often present in areas the place Hairy-man has been seen. Personally, I’ve discovered such creations on a number of events. One was in 2005 when, together with fellow creature seeker, Ken Gerhard, I traveled out to Lake Price, Texas, to research the legend of the Goat Man, which can nicely have been a white Hairy-man.
On a small island on the lake – Greer Island – Ken and I discovered simply such a formation, together with the stays of a devoured fish and a big melancholy within the floor that looked like one thing massive and heavy having sat there for a time frame.
I made the same discovery in 2008, after I traveled to Ray Roberts Lake, Texas, with Lance Oliver, of the Denton Space Paranormal Society (DAPS). In a single explicit, closely wooded a part of the lake, we discovered quite a few such creations, all of which appeared to have been customary with a excessive diploma of intelligence, power, and dexterity.
All the above however, it’s essential to maintain a wise head on one’s shoulders and understand that a minimum of some Hairy-man teepees are the work of nature. Jonathan Downes, of the Heart for Fortean Zoology, made a superb level to me on this very subject in 2012:
“I’ve at all times discovered the entire ‘Hairy-man teepee’ factor dodgy as hell. I’ll provide you with an instance. Only in the near past, we purchased a chainsaw, as there are locations within the backyard – the bushes – that haven’t been pruned in years. And there are bits and locations the place the branches have grown collectively in what appear like fairly an advanced means. That is in my little backyard in Woolsery [England]. You’ve acquired bushes and branches doing odd issues. And, it’s issues like this that imply I’ve by no means been impressed by the Hairy-man teepees. I believe they’re purely pure phenomena and nothing to do with Hairy-man – in Britain or wherever.”
Regardless of the fact of the matter, it could be sensible to maintain an open thoughts, however at all times err on the facet of warning, in terms of the controversy of the Hairy-man tree construction phenomenon.
