Did Bigfoot Cause This Deputy Sheriff To Wreck Their Patrol Car?

A deputy sheriff in Tennessee swerved to miss an unidentified animal in the road and ended up flipping their patrol car. The news article didn't come right out and say it was a bigfoot, in fact they said it was probably a "large bear". But if you read between the lines, this could have possibly been a bigfoot that caused this accident.

UPDATE: HAMILTON COUNTY, TN (WRCB) A Hamilton County Sheriff's Deputy went to the hospital after flipping his car on Highway 27 Northbound, Wednesday morning.

It happened in Soddy Daisy near the Sequoyah exit. Wildlife officials have not received any reports of a bear in the area, but several drivers claim to have seen the animal roaming in the area.

" We definitely had an interesting morning around 6 a.m. our deputy was driving Northbound on Highway 27 near Sequoyah road exit," said Matt Lea, Hamilton County Sheriff's Dept.

Officials say that deputy swerved suddenly to miss a large black animal, running on the highway.

"We're not really really sure what type of animal it was," said Lea. "Based on the description we believe it to possibly be a large bear."

The deputy's patrol car rolled over into the embankment. Deputies say the animal got away. About an hour and a half before the crash, driver Trish Newsom says she too had a close call.

" He was in the middle of my lane, it was almost like a nightmare or a dream ," said Newsom.

Newsom says she swerved to miss the animal just in time.

" I was numb head to toe, it startled me," said Newsom. " I mean it just literally appeared. If I had looked down at my radio, I would have hit it... that's how fast it happened."

TWRA officials say while there haven't been any bear sightings reported that doesn't mean they're not there.

    1. Amateur naturalist Henry James McCooey wrote of his encounter with a strange creature in bushland between Batemans Bay and Ulladulla.

      His words from 132 years ago conjure a jaw-dropping image.

      He writes:

      "A few days ago I saw one of these strange animals in an unfrequented locality on the coast between Bateman's Bay and Ulladulla. My attention was attracted to it by the cries of a number of small birds which were pursuing and darting at it. When I first beheld the animal it was standing on its hind legs, partly upright, looking up at the birds above it in the bushes, blinking its eyes and distorting its visage and making a low chattering kind of noise. Being above the animal on a slight elevation and distant from it less than a chain, I had ample opportunity of noting its size and general appearance.

      "I should think that if it were standing perfectly upright it would be nearly 5ft high. It was tailless and covered with very long black hair, which was of a dirty red or snuff-colour about the throat and breast. Its eyes, which were small and restless, were partly hidden by matted hair that covered its head. The length of the fore legs or arms seemed to be strikingly out of proportion with the rest of its body, but in all other respects its build seemed to be fairly proportional. It would probably weigh about 8st. On the whole it was a most uncouth and repulsive looking creature, evidently possessed of prodigious strength, and one which I should not care to come to close quarters with. Having sufficiently satisfied my curiosity, I throw a stone at the animal, whereupon it immediately rushed off, followed by the birds, and disappeared in a ravine which was close at hand."

      What a sight!

During the early colonial era, Australian Aborigines often warned British settlers to beware of huge, ape-like creatures that lurked in the rugged mountains and deep forests of the island continent. Their people, they said, had been encountering the hairy horrors since time immemorial. They knew them by many names, including doolagarl, thoolagarl, jurrawarra and tjangara.

      Soon the colonists, too, began to experience hair-raising encounters with the elusive, foul-smelling giants, which they referred to as “Australian apes”, “yahoos” or “youries”. Today, they are generally referred to as yowies. The list of modern-day eyewitnesses includes zoologists, rangers, surveyors and members of the elite Special Air Service Regiment.
