Anonymous elderly couple


The elderly woman heard deep “whoomp” noises. She aimed her camera toward the hedgerow at the back of her property and was startled to see what her flash revealed.

“I didn’t even see it as I took the first picture because it was so dark. As soon as the flash went off for the second time it stood up and started to move. I then heard the orangutan walk off into the woods.”

She noticed that its “awful smell” lasted long after it had left her yard.

On December 22, 2000, the elderly woman mailed a letter to the Sarasota Sheriff’s Department requesting anonymity. They received the letter on December 29, 2000. According to the department’s official report, the filing officer wrote, “I received an unusual letter addressed to the animal services of the sheriff’s office. The letter told of an encounter with a monkey or ape and contained two photos. The letter was anonymous.”

“Enclosed please find some pictures I took… My husband thinks it is an orangutan. Is someone missing an orangutan?”
