On this day in 1974, two groups of girls reported to the Columbus police (separately) that they had seen a creature that was "green, hairy, and large." It was walking upright in the Columbus downtown park.
Even though the sightings are now 41 years old, the monster is still remembered, and was featured on an episode of Monsters and Mysteries in America earlier this year.
Besides the comments that the creature was "green," the description ("large, hairy, walking upright") pretty much sounds like a Bigfoot. Maybe that's what the Mill Race Monster was.
Here's a link to the Mill Race Monster Facebook page…
