I’m not sure what to make of this story reported by Flash News. There’s definitely some scientific theory in here, regarding Bigfoot being attracted to women who are menstruating. There’s actually been a correlation shown between Bigfoot sightings and women on their periods. But to me, this sounds like a huckster trying to get more business in his RV park (or “trailer park,” as those of us who hate clever euphamisms call them). He could have gotten this information from watching almost any episode of “MonsterQuest.”
OCHOPEE, Fla. (Wireless Flash – FlashNews) – Bigfoot mating season is underway in the Florida Everglades and the furry, horny creature is out for blood.
Dave Shealy, an RV park owner in Ochopee, Florida, is the leading researcher of the Skunk Ape, Bigfoot’s “smaller, smellier cousin.”
He says there are seven to nine Skunk Apes currently living in the Everglades and right now is the best time to spot one because it’s their mating season.
Lately, he’s heard lots of campers report strange sounds coming from the swamps. He figures it’s the Skunk Ape’s mating call, which sounds like a low-pitched dove cooing.
Though Skunk Apes are generally shy, Shealy says women on their periods should be careful when hiking the area because the cryptoids are attracted to the scent of menstruation.
They’re also aroused by used lingerie, so female campers shouldn’t hang their panties out to dry because, in his words, “That’s like raising a flag and inviting them in.”
I’m guessing saying it would be like raising a red flag would have been in bad taste.
