Recent Knobby Monster Sightings Rekindle

Legend speaks of an ape-like creature who has been terrorizing the Upper Cleveland County since late 1970.  Media outlets named it the Knobby Monster, one person in particular: Robert Williams. He never saw Knobby, but he wrote what people told him to. These stories flew overseas, drawing interest from all over the world. Newspaper articles from 1979 detail more than a dozen of Knobby sightings. However, the rumors and sightings stopped mysteriously decades ago.

One report talks about a supposed man-beast, upwards of 10 feet tall which screeched like a night bird. The creature sported dark hair, with a grey beard stretching down to its navel. Authorities came in to investigate the area and find any suspicious tracks. They did not manage to find anything but they filed a suspicious person report.

The Knobby Monster had many reported sightings in the 70s. Even highs choolers saw the Sasquatch during some occasions. One man said that this monster might have broken his goat’s neck. The police say that this walking legend is not aggressive. However, it never hurts to be cautious.

The Cleveland County’s sheriff, Alan Norman, said that the sightings are far and in between now. However, “if there is a call, there’s standard protocol to be dispatched to the area.” Deputies basically check the area for any unusual sightings. Suspicious people will fall in the same category.

From the back roads that wind through the Smokey Mountain and from the cities below, people are converging. You can stop at any country stores that dot the hillsides and ask about this creature. The locals will gladly tell you the local gossip as well as lots of stories that they know of.

Here’s how one witness described the creature. “I seen its eyes first. Then I seen its oval shaped head. Then I seen the hair hanging off of him about 4 or 5 inches.” What makes this creature different from Bigfoot is the color of its hair, which is a fair blonde color. The ol’ Bigfoot has brown hair, as we all know.
