A boy had a distinctly unpleasant experience in July, 1968, when he was only four. A beast suddenly grabbed him and made off with him.
The family owned a dog of heroic temperament which pursued the animal, which was said to resemble a bear. The abductor dropped the child and all was well.
The boy later said the animal that had carried him off looked like a model of a gorilla which he was shown.
