North America has been haunted by giant birds for hundredsof years, and now there has been yet another series ofsightings, this time in Nova Scotia. While scientistsdismiss the idea thatTeratornis, agigantic prehistoricbird larger than a condor, could still exist, two weeks agothey would have laughed at the idea of there being 125,000 undiscovered gorillas in the Congo.
Myles Rafuse and Goldie Stewart of Crousetown, Nova Scotia,both had encounters with a gigantic, coal-black bird overthe past few days. The creature ran at Mr. Rafuse from theroadside. It was at least two feet tall and had a much widerwingspan. As the bird came toward him, he moved backwards,slapping at it with his jacket to keep the wings fromstriking him.
