Yeahoh, Yahoo or Bigfoot
The legend of the Hillbilly Beast This Bigfoot-like creature resides in the foothills of eastern Kentucky, is huge and hairy, smells horrid, glides when it runs and has yellow eyes and a ferocious howl. Reports of this terrifying monster date back to the days of Daniel Boone, but increasing encounters provided enough interest that History Channel’s MonsterQuest featured the Hillbilly Beast in an episode aired in their fourth season.
The Hillbilly Beast quietly stalks and roams the back hills of Eastern Kentucky, near the Ohio River. This large and intimidating creature has called this land home, long before settlers moved into the neighborhood.
As years became decades ,….and decades became centuries,……the human population exploded creating a strange situation for the man-beast.
Humans continually move further out into virgin and unspoiled territory, thus they are now coming face to face with the other being,….. that calls this land home.
Documented reports of these human / man beast run-ins, have been made to the authorities by the multitude, and many more just discuss their sightings privately among their family and friends.
