OCHOPEE, Fla. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Bigfoot mating season is underway in the Florida Everglades and the furry, horny creature is out for blood. Dave Shealy, an RV park owner in Ochopee, Florida, is the leading researcher of the Skunk Ape, Bigfoot’s “smaller, smellier cousin.” He says there are seven to nine Skunk Apes currently living in the Everglades and right now is the best time to spot one because it’s their mating season. Lately, he’s heard lots of campers report strange sounds coming from the swamps. He figures it’s the Skunk Ape’s mating call, which sounds like a low-pitched dove cooing. Though Skunk Apes are generally shy, Shealy says women on their periods should be careful when hiking the area because the cryptoids are attracted to the scent of menstruation. They’re also aroused by used lingerie, so female campers shouldn’t hang their panties out to dry because, in his words, “That’s like raising a flag and inviting them in.”
Upon the way, we passed by the smallest post office in the United States. Zip code 34141 is well served by a former irrigation shed from a tomato farm.
Today, it holds one employee and all the mail for those living along "Tamiami Trail."
It's a great photo stop.
The postmaster inside said on average 300 people stop a day for photos and stamps (I find that hard to believe).
However, we did find a group of Ohioans who stopped and confirmed, they indeed saw a skunk ape down the road. We left in search of the Skunk Ape Research Headquarters.
It's here that renowned researcher Dave Shealy studies the beasts... and manages a campground. Our Garmin GPS had a hard time finding this one.
Television crews and reporters are among the curious, constantly knocking on Shealy's door. He has been featured on local news channels, the Travel Channel, and the History Channel and has been a guest on "The Daily Show With Jon Stewart." And last month, Florida International University students interviewed Shealy for a documentary that they hoped would shed light on what they call "a supermarket tabloid" story. Tim Williams, 44, said he was a child when he first encountered the elusive ape. "We were on a camping trip at the north end of Turner River, off Alligator Alley, when I saw what looked like bear tracks with four toes," said Williams, extending his hand and tucking in his thumb to demonstrate. A few moments later, he said, an apelike animal ran in front of his father's jeep, leaving Williams stunned and forever convinced that something is out in the swamps.
