Man Attacked in Minnesota
Man attacked in the woods, clawed strangely by a mysterious beast…. Like the opening to a B-movie, but this time it happened in Itasca State Park in Minnesota.
On Thursday, May 24th, 2007 Jon Kenning, an assistant professor of biology at Creighton University (Omaha, Nebraska) was left with 2-inch lacerations on his head and torso after an early morning attack inside his tent.
Kenning never saw the animal, so speculation can be rampant as to the cause, from a bear to a fisher, and the latest suspect a Bobcat. And yes, we knew it would arise, even Bigfoot has fallen in the trap.
While Kenning will recover from his attack, it should be remindful of all researchers, hikers and campers to be aware that they are in nature and that even in a tent danger can lurk. This should not inhibit people, but be just a bit of warning.
Now, on the facet of Bigfoot and this attack. That is a story for another time, as it is a continuation of a pattern of quick reactions when an “unknown animal” is reported in the news. Reminiscent of the “mystery foot” for a while back found and other oddities of the woods.
