Fayette County, Tennessee
The Fayette Factor often overlaps with Bigfoot activity. For example, the hairy forest giants reportedly “became rather more aggressive on April 23, 1976 when [one] attempted to carry off a four-year-old boy from his backyard on a farm in Tennessee. A sheriff’s posse pursued the entity and seems to have shot enough high-powered rifle fire into it to have felled King Kong himself. However, as if tiring of the game, the creature finally leaped out of its cul-de-sac and simply vanished. These events occurred within a few miles of the hamlet called Fayetteville, Tennessee,” writes Jim Brandon in his classic Weird America.
