1954, Cumberland Gap, Kentucky: Children See Bigfoot Digging in Mud
Slim Ian and his two brothers, Mark and Dickey Ian, were playing around some trees in Cumberland Gap. Their parents were back near the car listening to the radio. The boys were throwing pine cones at each other and whipping each other with branches. Slim stopped short as the pine cone Dickey threw at him bounced off the back of his head. Instead of turning to fight, Slim just stood there as in a daze.
It was when Dickey and Mark ran up to Slim’s side that they understood Slim’s lack of reaction. About twenty five feet from where the brothers stood was a Bigfoot digging in the mud. The Bigfoot’s hands grabbed a huge pile of mud and then flung it into the air, high over the boys heads. Dickey, being the youngest, started to scream. The Bigfoot glanced over at the trio, which was enough to send all three brothers running away in tears.
When they arrived at the car, all three were out of breath, panting, and flushed. Their father laughed at them thinking they scared themselves somehow. It was only later that night that Dickey was able to tell his mother the tale of the digging monster. His two brothers would not talk about what they saw, so their mother assumed it was a backwoods hill person that scared her sons. And that just made her mad.
