Tales about the existence of the Beaman Monster in Kansas City have been around for more than a century. There is no proof, however, that such a creature exists. The common tale goes that in 1904, a circus train derailed. During the crash its animals escaped, but were quickly retrieved. Unfortunately, one of the biggest and most-feared animals, a "12-foot-tall gorilla" had eluded capture. The tales claim that the Beaman Monster was the offspring of the circus animal escapee.
Although there is no evidence, the Beaman Monster's existence is not impossible.
