Another Bigfoot type creature The Wawa Grande .
The Wawa Grande or the Monster of the Cajas Mountains in Ecuador has been
around for 200 years according to stories.It is similar to a Bigfoot being
described as a tall hairy humanoid creature. Reports say it is up to 8 feet
tall ,weighs up to 400 lbs and depending on the witness can have red, white, grey
or brown/blackish hair. Sometimes it walks on all fours ,sometimes it stands
upright on two legs.
The creature had been sighted several times in the 1980s. In July 1988 a
Scottish hiker claimed he was attacked
by two Wawa Grandes. The man named as Robert Burns said he sheltered in a cave from
a snow storm and was attacked and thrown
out of the cave. He was treated at Cuenca hospital for a broken arm, lacerations and
bite marks .
In 1997 a guide, Carlos Castro, said he took video of the creature during a hike
with three German tourists. He alsoclaims
to have seen the creature on another occasion.
In 2008 and 2009 that there was another rash of sightings in a small but
very high area of the National Park. Two Swedish Hikers in 2009 saw a Wawa
Grande and a photo they said they took appeared in a Swedish Newspaper in July
An article published in May 2013 said that some British tourists has seen
the creature in April and taken photos. One of them is a scientist and he said
he could not explain what he saw except it was a hairy humanoid withlight coloured fur .The photos have never
been released to the media.
So another bigfoot type creature. Whether
you think they are real or not, it is interesting that all the descriptions of
these creatures from all over the world have similar characteristics. Some have
been reported to show aggression. So large unknown apes or gorillas or something else, a relic
