Tipton County – 24 Inch Footprints

Is it possible that we have a modern Goliath prowling around at night in Tipton county, or a giant of cave-man stature, such as existed in prehistoric times? Evidence of this human specimen has been found near Mt. Carmel. The barefooted tracks have startled the reason of several people in that community recently, and it is thought that the man, if he really is a man, would experience much difficulty in fitting his feet with shoes, since his tracks measure more than 24 inches in length. We suggest that if he is ever discovered, he will be given an opportunity to sign a contract with one of the motion picture producers to take the leading role in “Tarzan of the Apes.”

Tennessee, Tipton County, The Covington Leader, 1921.
