Unlike the stories told of Bigfoot, this cryptid has a much more dangerous reputation. It's described as nocturnal, omnivorous and extremely territorial. Its footprints have been measured at 22 inches. It's reported as mimicking birds, coyotes and other wildlife as well as making unusual whistling sounds. Most disturbing of all it's purported to visit campsites after dark while humans are sleeping nearby.
