'Little-Foot' - [Cryptid/Critter?/Alien?] - Near Mount Airy, North Carolina, Early Febuary 1981.
• History: The second of four "Occupants & Critters" included in Gray Barkers 1981 UFO Annual "Selected for Abduction" - At the start of the article, Barker notes that despite the naming choice: the creatures listed had nothing to do with 'aliens' or 'big foot'.
• About this Cryptid: The creature was described by the witness as having pink skin, a very large head, frog-like hands, and tiny little feet. There was No hair on its body, No mouth or nose, it wore something like "a dress or a robe."
•Encounter: One evening the anonymous farmer was out milking his cows with his hunting dog, when suddenly, his hound started to growl, it sped off towards the hilled treeline. The farmer left his milk and he followed his dog, when he got there, it appeared to be fighting something quite fiercely, it stopped and backed away when his owner approached, the man shone his flashlight at the creature, two HUGE eyes stared back at him. - He saw the humanoid creature was laying prone, its limbs had been absolutely mangled by his dog, however, there was NO BLOOD. - Severely frightened by the unearthly creature and worried that his dog had killed something almost human, the man retreated driving into town & staying at a motel. The next morning he went back to the spot, the creature was gone. He called out for his dog, but no response was given, when he got back to his farm, he found his dog lying dead and his two cows where missing.
• Aftermath: Shortly after the incident, the man anonymously reported it to "Mount Airy NEWS" who christened the creature as "Little-Foot" - [Sam's NOTE: unfortunately thus far, i have been unable to find the news source for the incident beyond Gray Barkers articles, if anyone is able to finds more info, do let me know!] - The news of the incident eventually reached the "Mutual UFO Network" who dispatched investigator "Gail McBridges" during her investigation, she unearthed several shorter creature & UFO stories from the Mount Airy area which dated back to '68. [For the sake of clarity i wont recount them here.]
