How Fast Was the Wild Girl of Catahoula Parish?

In regards to my report last week on the Wild Girl (aka Wild Woman) of Catahoula Parish, Louisiana and my visit to the locations where she was sighted, I thought it might be important to point out the considerable distances between these locations. Unlike, say, the sightings of the Lizardman of Bishopville, South Carolina (which I have also visited) that took place within a relatively small geographic location, all within spittin’ distance of Scape Ore Swamp, the sightings of the Wild Girl are really spread out. It took a bit of driving to go from one to the next. Even if we allow that Louisiana a century ago was far more wooded and less developed than it is today, could the Wild Girl have realistically covered so much distance, and within the time frame of the alleged sightings?

If we accept for the sake of argument that the sightings were all genuine, there would seem to be only two possibilities, here. (Or three, with the third being that the Wild Girl was a marathon runner.) Either people were not seeing the same individual/creature in each case, or else there was something of the “supernatural” involved in the phenomenon. Perhaps the Wild Girl, like so many if not all cryptids, was interdimensional in nature, able to pass from one dimension into another and back again? This would explain how she was able to cover so much distance.
