Local Legends
« on: August 22, 2009, 07:17:00 AM »
 Is there any legends in any of your areas about cryptids or beasts lurking around?

Where I grew up there was one. It was about a white creature who walked upright like a man, but had the head of a panther, some people called it the wampus cat. I know of about 15 people who swear they have seen it.

anyone else?

Have enough giant spiders, poisonous snakes, wild dogs and crocs to deal with here  :wink:

Back where I grew up we had something called the Pope Lick Tress Monster.  Another variation on the goatman myth.

 We don't have any local legends around here. Just your garden variety critters. :cry:
