« My mother thought I was crazy. I said, « Look, there are monkeys out here, » said Alycha Tucker, who saw one as she went out to get her cat to the station.
« Then I heard it making a noise, didn’t » ooh ooh aah aah « but grunted so I didn’t know what it was, » she said.
« I just stood there when my eyes got used to the pitch black color and there I saw it, just stood there there, bigger than a garbage can, and his arms were hanging down a very long time and his arms were very thin, « added Tucker.
