Baptist Minister S.L. Whatley was cutting firewood near his home at Ocala, Florida, when he saw an ape-like creature watching him from about 300 yards distance. The creature was covered in dark fur and had a chocolate-coloured face free of hair. The arms were long and hung down loosely. Whatley picked up an axe intending to tackle the creature, but it scampered off.
