In the world of cryptozoology, there is perhaps no bigger mystery than the one surrounding the Skunk Ape.
The Skunk Ape is Florida’s answer to Bigfoot. Those who have seen it say that the creature is a humanoid ape with a strong, repulsive smell akin to, as one witness pointed out, “a dog that hasn’t been bathed in a year and suddenly gets rained on.”
Sightings of the Skunk Ape were first reported during the 1970s and have persisted with some regularity. The only problem is that people rarely document these encounters. That’s why this video is so interesting. In it, you can see a group of drivers pulled over to watch something large chase a smaller creature across a field.
Could this be footage of the real Skunk Ape?

I think the idea of such a beast on its own is scary enough without the horrible smell. Even though I live for all things creepy, I don’t think I’d want to come within a mile of this elusive monster.
