TODAY IN BIGFOOT HISTORY! Jessie Franklin demonstrates to police how he beat back “one them darned Bigfoots.” Franklin had been drinking at his illegal moonshine still just off Turkey Trot Lane. Franklin claimed that the creature came running out of the woods, waving its “hairy man paws” and calling out like a wild boar. Franklin picked up a stick from the ground and poked at the beast until the creature retreated. While demonstrating his method to local authorities, Franklin became so out of breath that he needed medical assistance.
