The Wild Woman of the Navidad
About a year since an account was published in the Victoria Advocate respecting a strange creature, whose tracks had been discovered on the banks of the Navidad, near Texas. The footmarks of this creature resembled those of a woman, and a report was circulated to the effect that a wild woman had made her retreat in the forests of the Navidad. Within a few weeks several attempts have been made to capture this singular being. Mr. Glascock pursued it for several days with dogs, and at one time approached so near it as to cast a lasso upon its shoulders. It, however, with great adroitness eluded the snare, and fled to a dense thicket, where it could not be traced. Mr. Glascock stated that he was near a small prairie enclosed by the border forests of the river, when the creature emerged from the woods, and ran across the prairie in full view. It was about five feet high, resembling a human being, but covered with hair of reddish brown color. In its hand it held a stick about six feet long, which it flourished from side to side, as if to regulate its motions, and aid it when running at full speed. Its head and neck are covered with very long hair, which streamed backward in the wind. It ran with the speed of a deer, and was soon out of sight. The dogs pursued it, and came so close upon it at a small creek, that it was compelled to drop its stick, which was taken by its pursuers.
The stick is about six feet long, straight and smooth, as if polished with glass. Several other persons have repeatedly seen the creature, and they all concur in representing it as a human being, but so covered with shaggy hair as to resemble an orangutan. It has frequently approached the houses of the settlers in that neighborhood, during the night, and stole various articles; among other things, it carried off a quantity of towels, one or two books, and has taken several pigs.
One of its nests was found in the forest, in which were several napkins, folded up just as they were taken from the house; and a bible marked J.J. Wright. A bill for washing was also enclosed in the bible. The foot-marks of this strange being have often been traced in the bottom of the Navidid, but it has eluded all attempts to capture it. The old settlers in that section, say that these foot-marks have been noticed for ten or twelve years, and that several years ago, there were other foot-marks indicating that three of these creatures where in company. Within the last year, the foot-marks of only one have been noticed. Mr. Glascock intends to collect a pack of good hounds and resume the pursuit; and he is confident that he will succeed in capturing it. He has incurred considerable expense, and has exposed himself to great hardships and dangers to secure it, thus evincing his full belief in the identity of this mysterious being. It is not improbable that during the war of the revolution, when the people of that section were driven from their homes by the victorious army some children might have been secreted in the woods or left there, and their relations never returning, have become like wild beast, clothed in hair, and feeding on herds and such small animals as they can capture or pillage from the settlers.-Houston (Texas) Telegraph.
