Now, on to the monster hunt!
In my search for interesting creatures, events, and phenomena in Michigan to share I came across a legend that is 100% real. The monster the legend is about actually lived. In Upper Michigan. And in a town I am familiar with!
This is the legend of The Ogre of Seney.
Also known as The Legend of Snapjaw.
Seney is most famous (at least among Yoopers) for the Seney stretch. It’s a 25-mile of stretch of highway that is straight and flat. Seney itself is kind of a blink-and-you-’ll-miss-it town, but at one point boomed thanks to the logging industry.
Which is where our story begins in the 1800s.
The Ogre AKA Snapjaw was a man named P.K. Small. And he was crazy. He would do anything for a bit of money. Usually so he could get some whiskey.
Stick his head into a spit-filled spittoon? Hand it over.
Bite off the heads of small animals? Ozzy wasn’t the first!
Eat animal poop? Bon appetite!
If you could imagine it, he would do it.
Snapjaw was also known for his odd nose. It looked as if something had bitten it off and it had been sewn back on. Allegedly, the culprit was none other than the Michigan Dogman!
