That's right. Arizona has its own Bigfoot. It's said to be over 7 feet tall, possess incredible strength, and have red eyes. It's also supposed to smell terrible, with the odor describes as similar to a "dead fish, a skunk with bad body odor, decaying peat moss and the musk of a snapping turtle." And it's extremely violent and loves decapitating deer.

Reported sightings have been all over Arizona, with the earliest dating back to 1908, when someone claimed to see the beast near the Grand Canyon. That report claimed the creature had long white hair and two-inch-long claws. There was also a sighting in 1940, which claimed the creature had deep-set and expressionless eyes.

In 2006, a member of the White Mountain Apache Nation claimed there were several sightings of the monster. These reports said the creature was all black, but no one encountered any violence.
