It looks like a pretty good picture of a mogollon monster or Bigfoot spotted in Arizona.
The Mogollon Monster is a creature that has been discussed in accounts from central and eastern Arizona along the Mogollon Rim. It is most often described as a Big Foot or Ape but many sighting differ in variation. Some say it could be a spirit being walking among us.
Like Big Foot many footprints and visual sightings have been reported of the creature. No solid evidence has yet to be discovered so it still remains a mythical creature.
Human or Ape
The Mogollon Monster is reported to be a bipedal humanoid, over 7 feet tall, with inhuman strength, and large eyes that some claim to be “wild and red”. Its body is said to be covered with long black or reddish brown hair, with the exclusion of the chest, face, hands and feet. Reports claim it has a strong and pungent odor.
Stories say the creature is nocturnal, omnivorous, very territorial and sometimes very violent. It is generally reported to: walk with wide, inhuman strides; leave behind footprints measuring 22 inches in length; mimic birds, coyotes and other wildlife; emit unusual whistle sounds; explore campsites after dark; build “nests” out of pine needles, twigs, and leaves; and hurl stones from locations that are hidden from view. The creature has also been said to decapitate deer and other wildlife prior to consumption. In numerous reports, the monster has been said to emit a “blood-curdling” scream; described as sounding like a woman in “great distress”. Accounts of the creature regularly describe an “eerie silence prior to the encounter, an appreciable stillness in the woods that commonly surrounds predatory animals.”
