1976, Baltimore, Maryland: Police Called After Bigfoot Seen Prowling Old West Baltimore
Starting around 9 p.m. the Baltimore Police began to receive numerous phone calls from frightened and concerned citizens in the Old West Baltimore area of the city. That section of town was in the middle of a redevelopment as the expressway connecting to I-70 was about to open.
The majority of the reports, many from confused senior citizens with tv’s blaring in the background of their calls, had a large hairy ape man walking down Popular Grove Street. Some people said the ape man was over 10 feet tall, others said it was as wide as three refrigerators. No matter the variances, the common trait was that it was definitely NOT human and stank of rotten fish guts and dog excrement.
Fearing a growing panic, two squad cars were dispatched to the scene. When the officers arrived, they found a large crowd of residents blocking traffic. After much commotion the police agreed to do a through search of the area. Even bringing in a K-9 unit, although the dog refused to track the ape man.
Reports continued to pour in the following day. At that point, the ape man had been identified as a Bigfoot and many people living in the area remained very frightened. The police advised them on how to protect their property and remain vigilant.
