Deep in the swamps of Florida, something is stirring. Witnesses to its haunting presence speak of howls in the night, unexplained footprints in the mud and glimpses between the trees of a fiery-eyed creature that reeks of death.

Now, a 30-strong team from The Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization (BFRO) has embarked on an expedition to try to flush out the mighty skunk ape - the Sunshine State's answer to the abominable snowman.

It is strangely camera-shy - although, in a quirk of fate eight years ago, one happened to lunge past a campsite at Ochopee, 35 miles southeast of Naples, where self-appointed expert Dave Shealey runs the Skunk Ape Research Headquarters and souvenir shop selling ape-man T-shirts and copies of his Everglades Skunk Ape Research Field Guide.
Isn't it funny how the people that get the best sightings of these creatures invariably make money by selling souveneirs about the creatures? LOL!

This story reads sort of like a prank grin2.gif
