A clip from the first film on "wildman",
mysterious human-like creatures believed to be hidden deep
forest Shennongjia (神农架) in China's Hubei
Over the decades, a number of groups of "wildman" hunters,
including state-sponsored researchers and self-funded amateurs,
relentlessly chased after the footprints and hairs allegedly
left by the wild hermits but never actually sighted a mythical
recluse in question, not until 18 November 2007.
The brief encounter on the day occurred in
the remote northern side of the Mt Old Man (老君山) along the
shore of the Inner Branch River (里叉河) when a four-wheel vehicle
turned the corner of a mountain road. The four tourists,
two men and two women, in the four-wheel spotted two dark
skinned creatures, one male and one female, both tall and
masculine, standing behind a shrub watching the vehicle.
However, as soon as the eyesights of the two groups crossed,
the pair on the ground immediately jumped up and ran into
the think woods, leaving behind their giant footprints and
a few fruits they just collected for the pairs from the vehicle
to gaze in awe.
A formal investigation was reportedly launched,
but so far no confirmation made regarding whether the naked
hairy pair were wild animals looked like human beings or
human beings looked like wild animals?
