(Show Printer-friendly Version)

YEAR: 1930


STATE: Texas

COUNTY: Leon County

LOCATION DETAILS: Leon County Texas, 1930's along the Trinity river about 120 miles from Houston

OBSERVED: This is the second time I have listed this report. Two men
Lawyer Henry and another fellow were quail hunting along a fence line near the Trinity River (A swamp, tall old oak, hickory and pecan.) They saw a very large 9' tall brown/black creature burst from the very thick brush carrying a calf. The calf weighed approx 300lbs and this animal had it in its arms running upright. Needless to say they departed the area and sped back to their employer a MR. JW who would like to remain confedential due to his failing health. As dusk approached MR JW, Sherrif, and the hunters returned to the location to find; one dead calf, entrails removed and brush
busted up all around. The three dogs MR JW brought would not get out of the car and the concenious opinion was to leave.

Not long after this occured MR Lawyer Henry, his family and many neighbors left the area. A couple of their house still stand, although in severe disrepair and grown up with brush. The area is still remote and on private land.

OTHER STORIES: For years the local and the early settlers in this part of
texas always talked about a "legend" that would steal hogs and cattle, and ruin your garden.

ENVIRONMENT: Swampy river bottem with numerous stands of pecan trees, very remote. 20 miles from nearest paved road.
