1884, Queen & Crescent Route, Louisiana: Railroad Workers Attached During Log Rolling
Railroad workers who were laying track for the Vicksburg, Shereveport & Pacific railroad along the Queen and Crescent route reported being attacked by “hairy wild men.” The group of rail workers, who were preparing for the log rolling after clearing a mountain side, told their foreman that, while the group sat drinking their coffee, they were attacked by rocks.
The rocks came flying out of the tree line. Then they heard growling and an unnatural howling. Some of the men ran down the hill. Others stood their ground, hollering and cussing and throwing rocks back into the trees.
That is when a group of three to five “hairy wild creatures, that ran hunched over, propelling themselves on their large fleshy knuckles.” The attacking monsters were not human. They had incredibly large feet and smelled like pond and mud water.
The rail workers turned heel and ran down the hill. No amount of pay was worth getting torn to bits by terrible howling Bigfoot!
