"Just in the outer fringes of the headlights, not quite out of headlight range, I saw this big hairy thing. It scared the devil out of me. It was probably 7- or 8-feet tall. It was running across [the road], from south to north, and it jumped a 4- or 5-foot barbed-wire fence."


The story of what Dennis Fewless saw near Delavan, in Walworth County, late that night in July 1964, is just one of many Wisconsin sightings of a large animal-like creature that walks upright. The creature has dented cars, slashed livestock, hunted hunters and even flown a UFO - if all witnesses are to be believed.

"I'm no nut," Fewless told me. "I'd been making that same drive night after night. It wasn't just a one-night affair. I know what to look for. You know what deer look like or skunk or bear - you know what that looks like. This didn't look anything like that at all. As far as I'm concerned it was real, and no one can tell me it wasn't."

A Delavan native, Fewless was driving home around midnight from his job at the Admiral Television Corp. in Harvard Ill. After turning onto Highway 89 from Highway 14, his headlights picked up an animal running across the road, from one field to another, on two legs. It was dark colored and weighed between 400 and 500 pounds.

"I was awful scared that night," Fewless told me. "That was no man. It was all hairy from feet to head."

The next day Fewless and his wife returned to look for footprints or other evidence. The sun-baked ground offered no clues, "But we found where the corn had been pushed back aside," he said.
