NBC Affiliate Reports "Wild Man" Returns to North Texas

KTEN News of Texoma Reports return of the Wild Man a/k/a Bigfoot
"You can actually feel it in your body.  The only way I can describe it is like when a train is running real close to you and you want to just take off running," --Bill Gibson

After the news segment below you can read an excerpt from the supporting article posted on KTEN.COM - No One Gets You Closer

Bill Gibson and his family have been living in this house on the east side of town all their lives.   Bill recalls the first time he heard what people in the area call the "Wild Man of North Texas."  It was 40 years ago.

"You can actually feel it in your body.  The only way I can describe it is like when a train is running real close to you and you want to just take off running," said Gibson. 

Bill's son Jeremy was just ten years old when he first heard the sound.  He says he's been haunted by the creature ever since.

"I know what's out there.  I know it."  "What's out there?"  "Something big."

After years of silence, the Gibson's say the "wild man" has returned, waking them up in the mornings with it's howls.  But, this time they called in renowned Bigfoot hunter Tom Biscardi to investigate.

"We know that something has been through here in the last three days," Biscardi said.

We've all heard the stories.  But we can assure you, whether or not you believe in Bigfoot is the last thing on Biscardi's mind, because he says he's seen one.

"When first I started out I was a doubting thomas, excuse the pun.  But then after I saw one and I got real close, I said to myself my god," Biscardi said.

 Biscardi and his men found what they believed to be several large foot prints in a clearing about a mile away from the Gibson's home.  So, they set up a perimeter, hung bate and strapped infrared motion sensor cameras to the surrounding trees.

The Green Man of Portland is Bigfoot

New artwork adorns the northwest streets of downtown Portland. These sculptures are creations of local artist Daniel Duford and they all feature an image or reference to the Green Man. The Green Man is a subject near and dear to Bigfoot, but let’s not get too far ahead of ourselves.

In a nutshell, the Green Man of Portland is really the pagan Woodosa or Woodwose, which translates to the Wildman of the Woods, which is where we got the Jolly Green Giant, who is really a Bigfoot played by Kevin Bacon. Okay, Kevin Bacon is excessive, but today’s post on Bigfoot Lore really feels like the game six degrees of Kevin Bacon. So you will have to forgive us for being a little “footloose” with the associations in this post.

Without Further Ado Here we go.

Let’s start with the Wildman of the Woods, AKA the Woodosa. The Woodosa is a mythological figure that appears in the artwork and literature of medieval Europe. The wild man can be described as a long-haired bearded man covered with hair from the neck down, he is often armed with a club, he considered the spirit that watches over the well being of the woods.

The Green Man is often seen alongside the Woodosa, although he watches over agricultural concerns. Almost identical to the Woodosa, the Green Man has a face surrounded leaves, branches, and vines that often seem to sprout his mouth and nostrils.

The Woodosa and Green Man remained mostly just as decorated sculptures for centuries until they reemerged as advertising trademarks for modern American agriculture. One incarnation was the California Giant Lettuce company and the other is a more famous icon known as the Jolly Green Giant.

This story of these two advertising icons is neatly summarized in Loren Coleman’s Book “Bigfoot! : The True Story of Apes in America”

“However, one image, familiar to most of us, parallels the California Giant, which we must not ignore. This would be the Jolly Green Giant…
…in 1903, Green Giant was founded in Le Suer, Minnesota, as the Minnesota Valley Canning Company. In 1925, a pale, boy-like figure with a leafy bit of clothing was introduced to market the company’s new line of giant, sweet, early green peas. The name Green Giant for this marketing image soon followed, with the giants figure’s skin then turning green. Eventually the Green Giant came to symbolize not only the peas, but the company as well. In 1950, Minnesota Valley canning Company disappeared and became officially the Green Giant Company. Today the Jolly Green Giant is the name of the giant figure, having evolved from the youthful figure of 1925.”

Okay, so these are all versions of the Wildman, what about Bigfoot? The Wildman myth permeates all cultures and histories. Where do these memories come from? A time when we were closer to other bipedal apes that lived among us? Sightings of the Wildman are almost non-existent; in fact they seem to disappear sometime after Charles Darwin published his theory. Perhaps sightings of the Wildman have not disappeared, but merely replaced by a better model. Replaced by a yet undiscovered hairy hominid we call Bigfoot.

For your entertainment we have provided Jolly Green Giant Commercials from three different decades; the 1950’s, 60’s, and 80’s.

The Wildman of Kentucky, the Mystery of Panther Rock

There is probably no other unknown creature that arouses more curiosity than the Bigfoot or Sasquatch. Yes, there is the Loch Ness Monster, the Chupacabra and other great beasts of Lore but the Bigfoot remains the most compelling as it pulls us towards ourselves…shadowing the unknown X factor of our very origins. The case files contain thousands of reported sightings, yet no actual specimen has ever been found. Hundreds of photographs exist, but the creature has not been identified. Still, the clues accumulate year after year. In the words of one Bigfoot investigator, “It is an extremely complex phenomenon with no starting point and few geographical limits.” If this creature does exist then it most certainly must be a relative of man.

Species? Unknown at this time

In the heart of Kentucky there is an ancient and sacred ground known as Panther Rock. For many years tales of strange events have been reported but never investigated in full. Now, for the first time an intrepid group of explorers ventures into the unknown to discover the truth. Join the Reality Team of Special Investigators as they uncover new Bigfoot witnesses and historical tales. Journey with them into the dark woods of the Frazier Land and witness amazing paranormal and often terrifying events.
