A latest survey of the highest locations within the U.S. to see a Man of the woods, Man of the woods or another model of America’s favourite tall, bushy cryptid stopped at #8 Texas and didn’t point out Georgia. A latest map displaying the highest cryptid in each U.S. state listed the Altamaha-ha (a scary inexperienced cryptid, described as 20-30 toes lengthy, with a sturgeon like physique and a bony ridge on its prime) as Georgia’s prime legendary creature. Each of those catalogs might must be up to date with new studies of two Man of the woods sightings in northern Georgia in only one week in Might. Is Man of the woods on the lookout for a tryout with the Atlanta Falcons, who’re presently conducting Offseason Coaching Actions (OTAs)?
“Man of the woods sighting between Ellijay and Blue Ridge Monday night time 5/20 at 8:30pm. It was nonetheless mild out and driver braked when he noticed what he described as a really darkish, 7-8’ tall, bushy, two legged creature with a pointed head, stroll alongside shoulder and into the woods. He stated the arms have been very lengthy and it walked with the arms prolonged from its sides.”
They is probably not getting the nationwide media consideration that UFO sightings are receiving (see the most recent report in The New York Occasions) however The Charlotte Observer, WAFB and different native media responded shortly to posts on Fb in regards to the sighting, particularly on the Expedition: Man of the woods web page run by Dave Bakara, proprietor of the Expedition: Man of the woods Museum in Blue Ridge. Bakara is aware of the world – that stretch of highway is State Freeway 515 in Cherry Log, a tiny (inhabitants round 120) unincorporated group in Gilmer County in far northeast Georgia close to Blue Ridge. Witness Edward Lee recalled the expertise for The Charlotte Observer:
“My very own spouse didn’t imagine me, I suppose. It wasn’t no bear. It was strolling straight up, like a human, with lengthy arms swinging backwards and forwards like a monkey. I noticed it on the facet of the highway, it took 5 steps and was gone within the woods. I imply, I’m 51 and I’ve by no means seen one earlier than. “I wasn’t getting out of the truck and I wasn’t going to enter the woods on the lookout for it.”
After the sighting was publicized, one other sighting every week in a while Memorial Day (Might 27) in a close-by space was reported to Expedition: Man of the woods.
“A person known as Monday after he noticed the put up in regards to the sighting in Cherry Log. He known as to say he noticed a black/grey one in Rabun County close to Clayton on his solution to work on Monday morning. It was strolling via a area early am and knelt down at a department the place there are trout current. At this level, he was at his closest to the creature, 50 toes. When the witness moved (he’d exited his truck to get a greater view), the creature noticed him and walked again to the woods.”
Clayton is about 75 miles east of Cherry Log, making it nearer to North Carolina which has additionally had its share of Man of the woods sightings (and UFO sightings) lately. All of those studies are close to the Blue Ridge Mountains and their many heavily-wooded parks. Is one thing driving Man of the woods out into the open? Growth? Clueless hikers who spend extra time taking a look at their cell telephones than appreciating nature?
As ordinary, there aren’t any photographs of both sighting, though Edward Lee was proven a drawing of an alleged Man of the woods and stated that’s what he noticed. As with many different sightings in lots of different components of the nation, these areas even have their share of bushy creatures generally known as bears. Luckily, these sightings are near Expedition: Man of the woods, the “World’s Largest Man of the woods Museum” with “4500 sq ft of Self Guided displays.” Let’s hope Dave Bakala retains us knowledgeable and vacationers excited by their visits to the museum hold going out and on the lookout for extra Man of the woods.
And hold their telephones prepared for photographs!
