It has been many years since a sighting, but old swampers would call him the South Georgia Pig Man. Over the years reported sightings have persisted in and around the South Georgia swamp areas, especially deep in the remote recesses of the Okefenokee swamp.
Reports describe the creature as a large ape like being, that walks upright, has abundant hair and a nose similar to a pig. Observers have commented on a skunk like odor that has accompanied the sightings. There have been no reports of hostility or aggression, in fact the creature was referred to as timid and shy with sad expressive eyes.
These Okefenokee area sightings have many details in common with creature sightings documented in the Everglades. A very similar missing link referred to as the Florida Skunk Ape. Could it be possible these beings are related genetically?
Before development transformed Florida, these man like creatures might have migrated. One of their routes could have been by way of the Kissimmee River Valley up along the Lake Wales Ridge to the extensive game rich swamps associated with the St. John’s River Basin.
The migration would have passed right by what is today the city of Jacksonville onward to the Okefenokee and beyond.
Who knows? Maybe I’m related somehow in some fashion or form to this Pig Man? It could happen… we could have matching snouts.

Bacon here from Summer Camp. This will be my final letter from camp. WOW – it’s been a long week in a lot of different ways and on the other hoof a very short week. I really didn’t want to come but I have to admit that it’s been kind of fun. I’ve met a lot of great friends – Scott and Piper. You are probably wondering who the heck is Piper. Piggy blushes… she was the strawberry that I had dinner with the other night. She’s sweet and cute and all girly and from the south. She gave me her phone number and address so we can stay in touch ❤ . Oh, and so did Scott.
Last night was talent night here at camp. All of us had to come up with some kind of talent for the show. Heck, I had to think hard. I mean what talent do I have besides pounding a keyboard.. which I’m pretty good with cause the last time I checked I was up at 25hpm (hooves per minute). So I thought about biting into an apple and laying on the floor but I’m not sure how many of the gang would get that one. Then it hit me. I would dance and sing a song of my people so I did.
“I’m a little teapot short and stout. Here is my handle and here is my … handle. Damn I’m a sugar bowl.”
It got a great snort and got me off of the stage quickly.
So today mom/dad are coming to pick me up. I can’t wait. I’m so ready to jump in the back of the Smart car and get home to my kingdom… my castle… my own bed… my air conditioning. aaww – I miss that life. I hope you’ve been entertained this week and that my little brother Houdini has done a good job on my blog. I instructed him before I left to take care of everyone.
See you soon my friends!

Bacon here from Summer Camp. I gotta admit mom that I thought this Summer Camp thing was a joke. I really, REALLY didn’t want to come. But I have to admit that it’s been kind of cool this week. We went and camped out last night ‘under the stars’. I gotta admit that laying around the bonfire and watching the sky through the tips of the trees was kind of cool. It’s amazing how many shooting stars you can see. That in itself was almost worth the trip.
I also put my Ninja skills into action last night and found the culprit who ate all of my Animal Crackers. It was a boy named Scout. Yep, nods piggy head, his name is Scout. He has stolen a lot of our food here this week at camp. After everyone went to sleep last night in their tents, someone – looks around innocently – went to his tent and made grunting noises, stomped around a lot and cast huge shadows on the side of his tent. For a boy that is challenged horizontally, he could run pretty fast. What’s even better was seeing him wearing his pajama onesie. Now that was priceless. He kept saying that he heard Pigman and Goatman in the woods. Don’t mess with the Ninja pig.
And mom you would be proud of me. I had dinner with a strawberry (girl) last night. She’s cool.
