Location Description: In the Herald story – “Security Guard Fires on `God Knows What’ ” – Cary Kanter, a 24-year-old security guard, claims he shot the Skunk Ape while guarding a construction site near West Palm Beach. “I drew my gun and ordered it to freeze,” Kanter told reporters. “But it kept on advancing toward me. And then what I saw made my hair stand on end. It was huge – about 7- feet-tall – was real hairy and was either hunched over or had no neck at all. And if you could ever get a whiff of this thing – it smelled like it had taken a bath in rotten eggs. It made my eyes water and my nose fill up.”
