What is the Monster of Whitehall? In 1976, in upstate New York, several police officers reported seeing an animal that they couldn't identify. It was described as a "large creature, seven to eight feet tall, walking like a gorilla hunched over and making a sound like a woman screaming." More than 30 years have passed and the sightings continue. The original police officers have agreed to be tested. Follow our team as they work with local researchers and renowned wildlife experts on the trail of the Monster of Whitehall.
[This image strikes me as a good depiction of the Big-Neanderthaloid type: it could even be said to be a "Marked Hominid" because it has redder head hair and a beard, and that would probably be the classification Mark A Hall and Loren Coleman would put on it. Once again, a skull of this type has been discovered, reported and illustrated for 75 years or so, and most experts consider the remains to be a type of Homo sapiens. Coleman and Hall say the remains are Homo heidelbergensis, which is identical to what is called "Archaic Homo sapiens" in the literature. So we can say there is a broad consensus of opinion on the point.-DD]
"According to one definition, Homo sapiens is a single species comprising several subspecies that include the archaics and modern humans. Under this definition, modern humans are referred to as Homo sapiens sapiens and archaics are also designated with the prefix "Homo sapiens". For example, the Neanderthals are Homo sapiens neanderthalensis, and Homo heidelbergensis is Homo sapiens heidelbergensis"
[Thus this is one legitimate Scientific point of view although not universally agreed upon. We choose to use that definition here.- DD.]
