‘India ‘Bigfoot’ Sightings Prompt Probe’AFP
June 11, 2007 — Claims by terrified villagers that “bigfoot”-type hairy giants are roaming the jungles of India’s remote northeast have prompted authorities to order an investigation, a local official said.
The bizarre sightings have been made in the Garo hills area of Meghalaya state, close to the borders with Bangladesh and Bhutan, with villagers calling the mysterious creatures “Mande Burung” — or Jungle Man.

A heavy fog lies upon the night,
White foam covers the boulder swathed shore
As large waves cast an eerie sound
In answer to a lone ships bell.
The lighthouse stands tall on an ominous precipice,
Its beacon beams dreary this night,
Reflecting off the mist in reply to its self.
A boisterous wind and pelting rain,
Breeds trepidation in the night, disaster looms…
This date will leave a blemish on time,
And Irish eyes will bleed the salty tears,
Of generations past, for those lost at sea…
