TODAY IN BIGFOOT HISTORY! Orrin Rossiter is fishing on the banks of Lake Bomoseen in Vermont when he is chased by a “pitch black apeman darker than any Negro I have ever lain mine eyes upon.” Rossiter claims that the hairy apeman had a hunched over gait and moved roughly through the bushes. Rossiter managed to escape the fiend by climbing a large tree and shouting until the apeman backed away. But the two maintained a standoff, one in a tree the other curled in a hairy heap at the bottom, for several hours. Eventually, Rossiter fell asleep in the tree. When he awoke, the creature was gone – leaving only a pile of apeman poop behind.
