New Movie Documents History Of Skunk Ape

OCHOPEE, Fla. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Bigfoot may get all the publicity, but a man in Ochopee, Florida, hopes a new documentary raises a stink about the Skunk Ape.

The film is called The Ochoppee Skunk Ape (sic) and documents the life and research of David Shealy, who for 30 years has been tracking the existence of skunk apes – a smaller, smellier version of the Sasquatch that lives in the Florida Everglades.

Shealy says there are a few skunk ape sightings each year and the new film features actual footage taken by a Minnesota college professor.

But the movie isn’t just about past skunk ape sightings. Shealy says he shows what kind of supplies are needed to track one and spends 15 minutes of screen time preparing a lima bean soup that is popular with the hairy critters.

The Ochoppee Skunk Ape will make its world debut April 13 in Marco Island, Florida but Shealy doubts that any skunk apes will appear.

However, he plans to show the film at his home on April 16 and plans to “cook some lima beans just in case the skunk apes want to see the film in person.”
