The Cajun legend of the Rougarou



The Cajun legend of the Rougarou can take on multiple forms. Originally derived from French stories of the “loup-garu,” or “wolf man,” the monster is most commonly described as a bayou-dwelling werewolf with glowing red eyes and razor-sharp teeth.


Bigfoot, or Sasquatch, is described as a large, hairy, muscular, bipedal ape-like creature, roughly 6 - 9 feet tall, covered in black, dark brown, dark reddish, white or grey hair. Individuals claiming to have seen Bigfoot described large eyes, a pronounced brow ridge, and a large, low-set forehead; the top of the head has been described as rounded and crested, similar to the sagittal crest of the male gorilla, sometimes with a strong, unpleasant smell. The enormous footprints for which it is named are claimed to be as large as 24 inches long and 8 inches wide. Bigfoot is presumed to be omnivorous and mainly nocturnal.
