The sighting actually made the weekly new-letter-paper, The Clover County Bird Cage Liner and FlySwatter. With a feature pick of the two craft-ladies standing at a trail leading into the Roughs, one with a index finger in front of her lips. The caption is, tread quietly, hairy beast spotted swinging in trees.
In the interveiw, one of the craft ladies insisted that it wasn’t BigFoot because it was sitting in the fork of a tree, and it was emitting the most deep-throated vocalization.
It was quite the story for about a month. People came from all over to look for Clover County’s real-live swinging Howler. Not to mention, the crafty-ladies’sales went through the roof for when people stopped in to ask them about the swinging, singing, simian, they’d usually find that the crafts in the crafty-ladies shop made great christmas presents too.
The story of the two-legged Howler Monkey simmered down that January when the Zoo in the Upstate Big town announced that they had gotten the last of a batch of orangatangs that had undid their cage door and escaped back by bribing them back with pizzia.
One of the crafty-ladies insisted that she knew what Orangatangs looked like, and what she had seen was certainly no primate she’d ever seen before.
