Naked mountain man harassing hikers outside El Paso, Texas [WTF]


Our friend Damian Bravo, who has an interesting theory about Bigfoots and caves, is probably going to love this story. A naked man living in a cave in a canyon outside El Paso is currently scaring away hikers.  Locals believe he has been living in the cave for about three years. Nearby apartment residents claim he's been stealing their clothes and have seen him bathe in the laundry room.

A reporter from KVIA-TV news visited the cave area and discovered some dead snakes in a tin:
He said the snakes in the tin nearby were for the animals in the mountain and not his own food.

"From the dumpster buffets and the fast food joints," he said of how he gets his food. "I'm a plasma donor. I'm not dying of anything, I'm drug-free and disease-free. God has blessed me with very good health."

The man said he's not hurting anyone and lives off donations and recycling cans.

"What is my crime? You ask my good neighbors, most of them help me," he said before dismissing those who complain about him as busybodies. "I'm sin-free in every city. I'm baptized and saved. They need to worry about their own selves, to repent and help the community more."

One hiker, who was initially chased away, returned and captured this footage of the showdown between him and the caveman:

  1. They should put a giant stone over the entrance to test if he is Jesus or a Bigfoot. He could be both I guess

    1. If he is chasing people he is bothering people. And he sounds like he has some obvious mental issues, so it would be nice if he got some professional psychiatric help some warm food and a dry and warm place to sleep.

    2. I'm am sure the local LE would not hesitate to take him in if he is bothering people.

    3. I can understand this guy. He does not want to be bother, and probably has no where to go. At the above poster, he does not sound like someone with mental issues. Maybe bitter for whatever he has had to deal with, but not crazy. Anyone can go see crazy people living on the street, and this guy sounds coherent. Misconceptions about others needs seems to far too often center on fear and not understanding. This guy has walked or been pushed out and away from society and its trappings for whatever reasons. Ok, I am a cynic about humanity and have posted here many times with an attempt at being thoughtful and reflective. Yes, there also have been times I have joined the collective bashing, which is something I do not feel great about. I am human, same as this guy. Fifty bucks says someone will make a "taterhole" comment. I applaud the owner of this site for posting this. All content does not need to be BF related.
      Oh, I am not religious. I do not believe in the Gov't nor the military (even though I spent a few years on M-1 tanks). I count myself as a skeptic on pretty much everything, but try to be open minded. I come here because of interests in science, the unknown, and consider the possibilities of the main topics here. Not trying to bash the above or anyone's beliefs, I am just tired of ceaseless criticism in this society.

    6. ^6:18, you make some great points. And I agree 100% on the criticism in this society, it's ridiculous. Everybody has an opinion on what you should be doing or what you shouldn't be doing. I made a move out of the city years ago due to that, and now I live peacefully in the country not bothering anyone and not being bothered, I just prefer it that way.

    7. It does sound to me like he has issues, only based off this small clip, thought a full evaluation would be needed of course. I would never make a diagnosis on someones mental health based on a short video clip, however red flags were indeed raised.
      I have no problem with someone opting out of society, if they are mentally capable of making that decision.
      I felt the man was asking for help in this video, and simply hoped he got whatever help he needed.

  4. I hope the right people see this and can get him the psychiatric assistance that he needs.
    I hope someone can find him somewhere warm to sleep and some warm food.

  7. Could have done without the entire story, not much about BF lately here and the choices of off topics get more bizarre each day.

  8. He is probably a functional paranoid schizophrenic. He has a source of food, water and money by plasma donating. He has shelter in the cave. Let him be. Probably the only ones he runs off are dipshits bugging him. If they drag him off for help and he gets medicated guess what happens? He loses his ability to sell plasma. And then becomes a burden on the tax payers. Just keep an eye on him, which I am sure the cops are, and if he really decomps, then get him help. Not everyone who is mentally ill needs or wants help.

  11. Who is harassing who? And what business is it of yours? I mean, aren't we in America the land of the free? This guy isn't mental. He just wants to be left alone. Gee, this is why I backpack and go camping. To get away from people like these idiots pestering him. Now, "if" he is exposing himself, then he gives up his right to freedom.
    Wake up
    Maybe the guy pestering ought to get a life

  13. After watching this and reading the comments, I must say I am impressed that most people (so far at least) seem to feel that he should just be left alone, and I agree. What does surprise me though is that no one has mentioned that he stated, "I'm baptized, I'm saved" and attacked him for that, or declaring that that alone is proof that he is insane. But it's early yet, and I'm sure some atheist commenter will bring it up.

  17. Disgusting to call that pathetic manchild pestering someone "news" or "reporting".
    Maybe you should consider a change of profession.
    Or a lobotomy.
