The White Bigfoot Flap of 1980
A series of creepy incidents involving a strange looking prowler took place in Mason County and surrounding areas in the fall 1980.In Mays lick on the night of October 7, Charles Fulton and his family were watching TV when one of the children came into the living room and said someone was turning the back door knob. Thinking the child was joking, Fulton made him sit and watch the television. "A few minutes later, something like to have tore my front door off," Fulton said. Fulton peered out the front door and flipped on the porch light, he saw a ‘’white, hairy creature with pink eyes that must have weighed about 400 pounds and was about 7 feet tall’’. The creature was holding the family pet rooster by the neck and then threw it against the side of the house. It then proceeded around the back of the house in a vacant lot. Fulton claimed to have grabbed his .22 pistol and followed the intruder. It appears that the Intruder was capable of dodging obstacles with ease that Fulton ended up stumbling into in the yard. There was a clothes line that stretches from a tree to the back porch. He did not know how the creature evaded the line in the dark,He fired on the creature twice, as it ran out of sight.
|Fulton said that its white hair was very long - much like a horse's mane. He also stated that the creature was "man-like", although you could see that it was not a person by looking into its eyes.|

However the strangeness did not end there, On November 5th Mr. Noble Clay, a truck driver from Alabama was on U.S. Route 68 into Maysville, when he saw a figure on the opposite side of the highway. He slowed his vehicle and turned on his high beams thinking that it was a hitch hiker. When he approached he was shocked to see an giant humanoid creature covered with white hair. He was under the impression it might be an Ape that had escaped So he called local authorities.When police investigate his sighting, they took his statement and filed a report. He stated to the Officers that he had never been to that area before and knew nothing about previous sightings of a white hairy creature.
