This sounds very much like a barmanu (alternate spelling "barmanou"), a foul-smelling, unusually vicious wildman believed by locals to live in caves
in this region. I don't think such an unusual height is normally attributed to barmanu; but then no one has ever captured and studied one. Or if
they have been captured and studied, it's been hushed up.
See, the strange thing about the barmanu is, in the 20th century, there's really only been one outsider (a Spaniard) to take much interest in them.
He was a cryptozoologist named Jordi Magraner. In the middle of his research on the wildmen, he was murdered. Assassinated, really. His throat was
cut, probably by one of his own guides before he got too close www.lorencoleman.com...
See, local legends are one thing. But when something smells like a cover-up, that starts to tweak my interest.
