    Do you happen to know of any reports during the summer of 1974?
    My brother, cousin and brother-in-law had seen a skunk ape and followed patrol cars as they were searching the area.
    I have included this account in my book Paranormal Family and Friends and was wondering if there were any other incidents or sightings that summer.

    In the summer of 1974 I was 12yr,old and was visiting my sister in Davie Florida that’s when I 1st, came aware of the Skunk Ape. At 1st, we just heard its blood curdling screams at night cumming from the swamp. I have never heard anything quite like that ever since. Then it began to visit our neighborhood that’s when I saw it for the 1st, time it was at least 9ft, tall blackish brown with redish highlights and weighed between 800 to a 1000 pounds. If there are any other people who have witnessed the Skunk Ape in that area in that time period please contact me at as82262@aol.com Thank you AL
