The Swamp Stalker of Boggy Creek…
–Known as The Swamp Stalker of Boggy Creek or The Boggy Creek Monster, this cryptid is reportedly a large, black-haired, barrel-chested creature who walks upright and stands about 7′ high. He was the subject of a 1972 movie titled, The Legend of Boggy Creek.
Recently profiled on MonsterQuest, sightings of The Swamp Stalker have come from Texas, Louisiana, and Arkansas, especially the town of Fouke in Arkansas. Sightings intensified in the late 20th century. A theory is that The Stalker may simply be a misidentified black bear, although some of the sightings have come from areas not indigenous to black bears.
MonsterQuest set camera traps with 360 degree lenses which yielded only images of known animal species and a few human hunters. A large old scat sample (feces) turned out upon analysis to be from a wild boar.
And so as with many similar cryptid creatures, the existence of The Swamp Stalker of Boggy Creek “remains undocumented…”
