BDN Interviews MacDougall for Article on Reported ‘Wild Man’ in 1886

Pauleena MacDougall, director of the Maine Folklife Center at the University of Maine, spoke with the Bangor Daily News for the article “Bigfoot in Maine? 10-foot-tall ‘wild man’ was killed in 1886, newspapers reported.” The article states reports of a 10-foot-tall “wild man” with hair growing all over his face and body were first published in the Waterville Sentinel, a weekly paper that no longer exists. MacDougall told the BDN a quick search of the UMaine archives turned up three “primate” sightings in New Brunswick, two that were at least 10 feet tall — one in 1961 and one in 1986.
