FtV – The Leaping Lumberjacks of Central Maine
Welcome to New England Legends From the Vault – FtV Episode 34 – In Episode 214, Jeff Belanger and Ray Auger explore the woods around Moosehead Lake in central Maine searching for some leaping French-Canadian loggers who became the subject of teasing and a neurological study back in 1880. When startled, these loggers would jump up and down uncontrollably and do whatever anyone tells them to do. Was this affliction the result of inbreeding? Boredom? Or something else? This episode first aired September 23, 2021.
