Now that I've finally managed to get a little control over my irrational fear of spiders, enough to come into my forum.....lol....thought I'd post about the Monkey Man. I love this one actually.

First, from Strange Mag

http://www.strangema.../monkeyman.html (partial copy/paste from site)

The recent monster-inspired panic in India has historical precedents, such as Spring-Heeled Jack, but has been more dangerous than most of them.

Descriptions of the Monkey Man of India, first mentioned in police calls on May 13, 2001, have shown little consistency. So far, some described the entity as having a metal claw or claws, while others likened it to a cat with glowing eyes. Another claimed it had flaming red eyes and that green lights glowed upon its chest. These descriptions were but a few among many.

Whether the creature that so many feared was like a monkey is a matter of dispute. Witness claims also described it as agile and feline, as a bandaged figure, or as a helmeted thing.


An article from CNN.com (partial copy/paste from website)

http://archives.cnn....ndia.monkeyman/

"Monkey man" hysteria has swept the Indian capital following the confirmation that injuries sustained by victims are animal bites.

Indian media has reported that two terrified residents have fallen to their death on hearing that an ape-like attacker was nearby.

Police said Wednesday that they were no closer to solving the mystery of an ape-like creature which residents accuse of clawing and biting dozens of people in New Delhi suburbs over the past fortnight.

"We have consulted doctors about the bites and they said they were by some animal," Joint Commissioner of Police Suresh Roy told Reuters news agency.

"The information we have is pointing towards an animal. But we checked with the local zoo and they said no animal had escaped from there."

Reports -- including hoax calls -- were so prolific that police ran short of vehicles following up complaints.

Apparently police issued a composite drawing of Monkey Man....

I wouldn't call it irrational. I hate 'em too.

well, sorry to break the "scare", but the monkey man was a fraud, and was beaten up by the villagers who caught him "red-handed". Just a robber with a new idea! :ph34r: This was "news" for us till the monkey WAS manned.

So they actually caught the person behind the 'legend'? Very cool! I'd often suspected that someone was behind the Monkey Man, but hadn't been able to locate any concret info.

The concept is pretty nifty though.
