The Shaawanoki of Florida

I saw a  Youtube video a few years ago about an incident in the Green Swamp in Florida, I think it was, in which a motorist struck and killed a swamp ape similar to that in shaawanoki picture to the right.
The piece had a photo that looked absolutely real to me.  It was gripping and unforgettable.
Apparently the motorist called 911 and EMTs came out, pronounced it dead, and took it away in a body bag.  Unfortunately, the guy ran into the usual haters–those apertures who criticize the best  evidence the most vociferously.   He soon took down the video.
Anybody know anything bout this? I would be so thrilled to see that photo again.

Sighting reports and information:

1884 Ocheesee, Florida, Wildman Capture

Ocheesee, FL, wildman

The Wild Man traditionally favored such dense and swampy locations, but in 1883 local residents nevertheless were surprised when their neighbors began reporting encounters and sightings of one of the creatures.

…….. . . . .

Men assembled with guns, boats and
horses and a plan was devised by which they
would converge on the creature’s last
reported location from various directions at
once.

Two Egg, Florida, Stump Jumper

Two Egg, FL, stump jumper

Described by eyewitnesses as a small, hairy, “mini-Bigfoot” creature, the Stump Jumper has been seen in the swamps a few miles east of Two Egg, Florida, for many years. The sightings usually take place in the woods around the ghost town of Old Parramore and it was in that vicinity that the latest sightings
took place.

There are links at the bottom to more reports of the creature.
