"Hairy and scary in the woods"

The most trusted name in news explores a little phenomenon called Bigfoot.

A Wisconsin man, whose job is scraping deer carcasses from roadsides, calls to report having seen something unusual in the woods. "I never said it was a Bigfoot or a yeti," he says in this CNN-affiliated report. But luckily for CNN, the man said the words "yeti" and "Bigfoot" so they can produce an implied Bigfoot-sighting story. The correspondent says that the man was "reluctant to report his sighting at first." When the hunter in the rifle superstore is asked to speculate about what the creature could be and then uses the universal sign for beverage-hoisting to suggest the concerned caller probably had been drinking, we can only wonder why the carcass remover had been hesitant to report his "large, black, furry figure" sighting. The only thing dangerous we see in those woods is a correspondent wearing a creepy trench coat.
