2. The Bennington Monster
There’s an old urban legend in Vermont’s Green Mountain National Forest of the Bennington Monster, a Sasquatch-like creature who’s supposed to prowl the area. In 1946, an 18-year-old college student named Paula Welden told her roommate she was headed for a walk along the forest’s Long Trail. Though several witnesses saw Welden hitchhike to the trail and begin her walk, no one reported her return. Hundreds came out to search, but the investigation was botched and it remains an unsolved case to this day. Four other unexplained vanishings took place around the same area between 1945 and 1950, which has lead to this patch of wilderness being called the Bennington Triangle. Sure, there could be a myriad of plausible explanations, but having a Sasquatch lurking in the woods makes for some spooky campfire stories.
