Man, or Gorilla?
The Extraordinary Character Who is Scaring Canueks
Ottawa, Ont., Aug. 1 – Pembroke about one hundred miles north of Ottawa has a lively sensation in the shape of a wild man eight feet height and covered with hair. His haunts are on Pretties Island, a short distance from the town, and the people are so terrified that no one has dared to venture on the island for several weeks.
Two rafts men named Toughey and Sallman, armed with weapons, plucked up sufficient courage to scour the woods in hope of seeing the monster. About 3 o-clock in the afternoon their curiosity was rewarded. He emerged from a thicket having in one hand a tomahawk made of stone and the other a bludgeon. His appearance struck such terror to the hearts of the rafts men that they made tracks for the boat which was moored by the beach. The giant followed them, uttering demonical yells and gesticulation wildly. They had barely time to get into the boat and pull a short distance out into the stream when he hurled the tomahawk after them, striking Toughey in the arm and fracturing it. Sallman fired two shots, but neither took effect, the giant retreating hurriedly at the first sound of firearms. It is more than probable that the townspeople will arrange an expedition to capture, if possible, what Toughey describes as a man who looks like a gorilla, wandering about in a perfectly nude condition, and, with the exception of the face, completely covered with thick growth of black hair.
