British Teen Photographs Mysterious Apelike Creature In Public Park

A case of confusion? A hoax? Or the emergence of a new, adorable little cousin to Sasquatch? The Telegraph reports:

Terri Leigh Cox, 17, says that she saw something hunched over and bounding around on all fours from her bedroom window in Dorchester, Dorset, and took a photograph of it on her mobile phone. The teenager said that the park’s visitor, which she insisted was not a dog or cat, then ran up a tree and out of sight. Shaun Bessant, her boyfriend, went out to investigate but found no sign of the “monkey–like” creature.

Miss Cox said: “It was definitely a monkey because you could tell by its hunched back and the way it scampered across the field and up the tree…It could have escaped if someone was keeping it as a pet.”

The park is about 10 miles from the Monkey World attraction in Wool. A spokesman for Monkey World said that all of its monkeys and apes were accounted for.

    there really ought to be an article on here concerning leprechauns…. Its a little late for St pattys day (snakes on the island MY ASS, but thats neither here nor there) but I just cant help but be reminded of it.. there is actually some REALLY interesting information out there on it, real claims of people in Ireland seeing them and the government sectioning off parts of the woods for them….

    And it couldn’t hurt to throw in the youtube video labeled “Mobile, Alabama Leprechaun Crackhead Pot of Gold”

      I think it’d be more of our style to run an article on Leprechaun sightings on any day but St. Paddys.

  7. It looks like a BBQ.
