    According to the Cryptid Wiki, "The city of Toronto once had numerous streams and waterways that, as the city expanded, were built over and became a network of underground waterways, buried beneath the city and merging with the sewer systems. The Algonquian tribes of Canada spoke of man-like hairy creatures that thrived in these rivers before they were hidden away from the public. In 1978, a similar monkey-like creature was sighted living in an underground tunnel in Toronto." So what is the tunnel monster?

Their eyes are often pale blue, or gray, or perhaps white without irises. They have a long, sharp set of fingernails, to boot. Their favorite way to torture their victims? Pin them down with some ice and tickle them to death. Wild stuff, eh? We also […]
