The Fouke Monster: The Legend Lives On

The Fouke Monster: The Legend Lives On

Most Bigfoot enthusiasts are familiar with the movie The Legend of Boggy Creek. It is a cult classic within the Bigfoot community. The movie takes place in Fouke, Arkansas and is based on a true story. If you haven't seen it I highly suggest you do so. 

Personally, I feel the Fouke Monster is one of the most compelling pieces of evidence for Bigfoot's existence. There have been dozens of sightings of the beast since the first one in 1946. (I have heard that number is actually over 100) While it may not be the same creature every sighting it still shows that area has a rich history in activity.  

The monster seemed very aggressive for a Bigfoot and was often sighted near farms and even tried to get into someone's house at one time. It first made headlines in 1971, when it was reported to have attacked the home of Bobby and Elizabeth Ford late on the night of May 1. Elizabeth had been sleeping on her couch when the beast reached through a screen window. It was then chased away by her husband and his brother only to return later that night to attack Bobby Ford on his porch and throw him to the ground. The men claimed to have shot at it and even hit it but a body was never found, and there were no traces of blood. Another odd characteristic is when footprints were found they often contained only three toes.  

What would cause a Bigfoot to be so different in it's behavior and physical makeup?

Perhaps the Fouke Monster was a product of inbreeding thus the weird behavior and three toes, or had mental illness from being isolated from other Bigfoots. 

At any rate, the sightings continue to roll in from that area, thus keeping the legend of the Fouke Monster alive and well.

The Legend of Boggy Creek is a 1972 movie about the "Fouke Monster", a Bigfoot-type creature that has been seen in and around Fouke, Arkansas since the 1950s.
