An author has warned that a Bigfoot-like creature that tormented his family for decades is allegedly on the move.

According to Bruce Hallenbeck, the legendary Kinderhook Creature terrifies upstate New York residents with its ear-curdling screams and intrusive hunting patterns.

Hallenbeck claims that his cousins and grandmother have had terrifying experiences with the legend that has allegedly dug through their trash, left dead coyotes hanging in trees, and tormented the community of Kinderhook with wretched screeches.
