New Questions on the Medoc Mountain Print

We keep receiving reports of sighting in our area. All of the sighting detail a bipedal, hairy creature, partially hunched. However some of the reports differentiate from a “typical” bigfoot sighting, if there can be such a thing. Some of the reports we have been given state that the creature has visible ears and a snout.

Smithfield Premium GeneticsAnother recent report told us of strange happenings at a building centrally located to all of the sightings, Smithfield Premium Genetics. The report is from someone who lives near the building and says that they have a lot of activity late at night, and that at those late hours they hear screams that sound more human than animal. We at the museum have never witnessed any of this but we do find the report interesting and we are looking for more information.

Another person who also lives close to Smithfield Premium Genetics said that she found very large prints in the snow outside her home last January, they were hoof prints but extremely large, at least 5″ across.

A visitor to our museum who was aware of the rumors on smithfield genetics stated that the print found at Medoc Mountain looked more like a hog print than a typical bigfoot.

MM-Print-1Here is a photo of a copy of our print. It is more clear than the original without all the pinestraw and debris on it. We do not think this is a match for a hog print, especially given the size, and the fact that the three “pads” have what looks like toenails or claws at the end of them. Also, please not that due to the hardness of the soil it was impossible to really tell where the print ended so we cast the area that was most clearly defined, the print may be the correct size, or it may have actually been longer, and the toes just dug into the soil better. A full grown man jumping on the soil could not make a castable imprint. See the full story here.

What do you think? Do you have any information about Smithfield Genetics? We would be interested in any more information we can collect regarding either the print or the suspicious looking local building.

 

Suspicious Print Found in Medoc Mountain State Park, NC

After receiving multiple reports of a bipedal creature crossing the road near Medoc Mtn State Park, CPM (Crypto Para Museum) decided we should go out and snoop around.

The print was 8" by 9" from what we could tell. It appears to have 3 toes or pads, and after casting, it revealed claws or toenails.

When we entered the park, we saw that they had been staging controlled burns, especially along the trails. Most of the ground around the trails was charred and some areas were still smoking.

Within minutes of entering the parks picnic area, and deciding which trail to take, we noticed a suspicious print.

Since we brought a cast kit with us, we were able to cast on the spot.

Luckily we had our casting kit with us, and we were close enough to the parking lot to make it easy to get supplies. The print was obviously fresh. While waiting for the cast to set, we tested the nearby ground and were

unable to make any mark due to the dryness of the substrate, so whatever made this mark was very heavy.

After the cast set, we brought the cast to the park’s ranger station and they were incredibly helpful, showing us animals that they had on display to give us an idea of foot size, however they were unable to identify the print, as the largest creature spotted in the area is the occasional black bear which has a print size of up to 5″ across, not the 8″ width that this print has.

We are posting photos to see if anyone can shed any light on

This photo shows that there are at least 3 or 4 claws or nails, and the red lines show the indentations along the print.

helping us identify the print, or has seen anything in the area, please report it to CPM at cryptopara@gmail.com
