Here for your enjoyment is another "Legends" story which once appeared on the ITS-BIG website. It was written by Tuklo Nashoba.
TEXOMA BIGFOOT RESEARCH & INVESTIGATIONS does have permission in the form of an e-mail dated April 6,2000, from Tuklo to myself giving me permission to use anything off the old site I wished [this would have been the ORIGINAL ITS-BIG website, and not the more recent one.]
We are not saying this story is factual, we're simply offering the TBRI audience something to read.
Many years ago there lived a grandmother that quite frequently babysat her grandchildren. Nanna would sit on her rocker, on the front porch of her log cabin, smoke her corncob pipe and read Bible stories to the "younguns". Many times Nanna would come across a passage of Scripture that would side track her onto tales of the Monster of Mudcreek. Her young audience would particulaly love it when Nanna would regale them with tales as to the Monster's foul deeds. According to Nanna, the Monster of Mud Creek would steal chickens, kill calvces, break into larders/smokehouses and just cause general mayhem.
One particularly hot night, the children all slept on the screened in back porch to Nanna's cabin, and they were all sleeping soundly when a scream for Nanna woke everyone up. "Nanna! Nanna! The Monster is out there in the woods!!!"
Sure enough, Nanna came running and was carrying her trusty Greener double barrel ten gauge. The big ol' hairy Monster started coming straight for the porch that the five children were sleeping on.
Suddenly there was a loud "KABLAM!"
Nanna had shot the Monster right through the screen [and had hit him too!]. The Monster turned and started to run away when Nanna ran up to the hole in the screen and "KABLAM!" went the other barrel.
That old Mudcreek Monster let out a howl and was gone like the wind.
You see, Nanna always loaded her own shells, and those two she had reserved especially for the Monster of Mudcreek. They were loaded with broken glass and rock salt.
