The origins of the Tennessee Wildman goes way back to the 1800s in McNairy County, Tennessee. One of the stories is that a circus freak showman somehow captured the beast and put him on display in a cage to where everyone can see him for exploitation until it finally broke free. The description of the Tennessee Wildman is much similar in appearance to Sasquatch but only more human.

He supposedly has either dark grey hair or dark ginger hair, is about 7 feet tall and is always accompanied with piercing red eyes. It is known to spout out a disturbing war cry that can frighten anyone that hears it and has a horrible smell that's reminiscent to the Skunk Ape. It's very aggressive in behavior and could possibly be the archenemy of Sasquatch ironically, often fighting for territory reasons. Not surprisingly the Wildman possesses great strength, agility and speed. There have been many groups of men that have went out hunting for the creature but all the times, usually they don't find anything or something traumatizing happens. The monster is known to have a strange targeting obsession with dogs and women. Many women came out to say the Wildman had attempted to snatch them up and carry them away. It is suspected, however, that these attempts were always unsuccessful.

The latest known Wildman sighting took place about 20 years ago near Elizabethton, Tennessee. Robb Phillips, along with his cousin, were on a night hike to Bee Cliffs. Through the rain, they noticed something strange in the forest; everything had become completely silent. The sound of a snapping twig broke the silence, followed by a horrible inhuman scream unlike the hikers had ever heard. The men fled separately through the darkened wood, with Phillips soon finding safety behind a tree. It wasn't long after that he spotted the Wildman clinging to a nearby tree, about 15 feet away. Robb heard his cousin break for the hill, and he followed suit.

Phillips' account corresponds slightly with the initial tales of the Tennessee Wildman. He was described as "stout", about 9 feet tall with red, beady eyes, a set of claws and a horrible, pervasive "stink" that Phillips compared to the stench of a dead animal.

It is unlikely that the Tennessee Wildman has lived almost 150 years in the Tennessee mountains. It may be assumed, then, that more than one of these creatures exists. Or could the creature sighting in the Bee Cliffs area be something else entirely? It wasn't only Tennessee that this creature was sighted, some reports were also coming from Kentucky.
