The bones of some prehistoric giants have been unearthed near Aniston, Ala. One of the thigh bones was sixty-two inches long, and the skulls averaged thirty-four inches in circumference.
Anniston is a city in Calhoun County in the state of Alabama. The city is situated on the slope of Blue Mountain.
In 2002, an investigation by 60 Minutes revealed Anniston had been among the most toxic cities in the country. The primary source of local contamination was a Monsanto chemical factory, which had already been closed.
For those conspiracy or just free-thinking here is something to latch onto: The location of the skeleton was: “prehistoric giants have been unearthed near Aniston, Ala.”
While the chemical spill that is quaranteed off is located: “Anniston plant encompasses approximately 70 acres of land and is located about 1 mile west of downtown Anniston, Alabama.”
It would be nice for a local to follow up and see if these two locations overlap somewhere, could the bones be located there, or are they already removed?
