Ape creature reported in Tunbridge Wells

Sightings of an 8ft Bigfoot-like creature with glowing red eyes have been reported by locals in England.

Several reports of the creature have been made over the last few months with residents divided over whether there is any truth to them. Descriptions of the mysterious assailant depict it as an ape-like hominid that stands 8ft in height and sports a pair of glowing red eyes. Situated 40 miles from London and with a population of over 56,000, Royal Tunbridge Wells would seem like an unlikely place to find a new undiscovered species of bipedal ape.

This isn't the first time such reports have been made in the area either. In 1942 an elderly couple were said to have encountered something similar. "They were sitting on a bench when they became aware of a shuffling noise behind them," wrote a contributor. "Upon turning around they saw a tall, ape-like creature with eyes that were burning red moving slowly towards them. They both fled - terrified."

"The peaceful countryside that surrounds upmarket Tunbridge Wells is being stalked by an 8ft ape-like beast with 'demonic' red eyes, according to local residents."

What ever they are, 256 acres is a big place to lose them in. Actually, I was recently surprised to learn that an acre is nowhere near as big as I thought it was. For example, 256 acres (according to the app on my phone) is a fraction over 1kmsq. No where near enough room to hide a new species of biped.

A similar creature has been seen by all 4 of my uncles in the local woodlands. Those men have some interesting tales.

Well, this is what happens when unknowledgable locals gather and consume wild mushrooms.

No where near enough room to hide a new species of biped. Maybe they live under ground in caves and only come out to scavenge for food at night.

No where near enough room to hide a new species of biped. Not if the new species of biped is Bigfoot...... Just ask Matt Moneymaker, or Bobo, or any member of the BFRO They say Central Park in New York is Squatchy......

Looked at the op picture, sorry, but the background is not Tunbridge Wells Also "creatures staggering out of nightclubs to terrify young women" this may be a bit of a clue. Funnily enough, just posted on another thread about fancy dress costumes. Many people do not even have to be dress in a gorilla costume while staggering out of a nightclub, being off their head and shouting their heads off can be enough to terrify young women.........also at that time in the morning when they come out, I doubt these "young women" were on their way to church.

Not to mention the Big Grey Man of Ben MacDhui. To be hoenst I don't really know what to think. I'd guess that the grey skinned ones are females incidentally. The hairy ones the males.
