Florida is infested with Samsquanch!

The Long Island Press has a blog post today about the so-called "Skunk Ape" found in the Everglades! With interview of a "victim!"

"It didn't look fleshy. It looked like it had a beard or something. It had hair on its face. It had a big head. It was probably, I don't know if it would have been twice the size, but like the size-and-a-half of a human head. It was big. It was long and it was oval shaped. It had pretty broad shoulders. Long, long arms. It didn't have big, long hair. I remember it being...matted. Like, when hair gets wet and then kind of dries? It wasn't a big fluffy hairy thing. It looked almost like, from a distance, it had a sweater or a brown uniform. And it was all the same color. Brown. It wasn't human. I don't know what it was, but it wasn't human. "
