Monsters, myths and finding the real missing link

Stuck in her bedroom during the pandemic, with only the internet and her imagination as companions, one university student found a way to satisfy her taste for odd adventures.

She wanted a good old fashioned monster hunt. And if she had to do this digitally, then so be it. First step: pick a monster. The internet led her to a little known cryptid called the Mogollon Monster.

She spoke to die-hards and skeptics about the monster and found one belief in common: myths are more meaningful that modern audiences know.
