Possible Bigfoot evidence in the Grand Rapids area

Subject: Hair

 

I received a message from a gentleman named Mike, who lives in the Grand Rapids area. He sent me an amazing story of something he and his grandson found while they were out hiking in a stretch of woods near by.

He explained he and his grandson where out target shooting, and hunting salamanders near the Grand River, deep in the woods of a 200 acre parcel.His grandson called him over and pointed up in a large tree.  He asked “grandpa what kind of hair is this ? I looked and saw a clump of hair stuck to the bark about 7ft. up the tree. He  pulled it down and it appears to still have tissue on the ends as if pulled out. Its dark brown almost black and the tips of the hair are lighter. Not sure what I have but it would be interesting to find out.

I was intrigued with his story and after I  received his message I called Mike to get a better understanding of what he and his grandson found. We both thought it unusual that a matting of hair, and tissue to be that high up in a tree. And what could possibly leave that tissue,/hair  that high up? We could not think of anything. Mike did say the fur was nothing that he recognized and had a strange coloring to it.

In addition Mike, had mentioned some strange noises he had been hearing in the area, but wrote them off as coyote’s.

Mike was going to try to have the hair, and tissue analyzed and see who the owner is. He would let me know as soon as he found out the origin.And as soon as I  hear anything I will publish the results.

He also has some other strange things that have happened to a  friend of  his in area. I will get all the details, and publish them when I can. I am planning to go see him in October of 2019. I will get an account of his stories and publish them at as later time. I will look forward to my visit.

I thank Mike very much for coming forward with his story, I feel he is a very credible person. I enjoy reading, and hearing of Bigfoot stories in Michigan. I think I read that Michigan has the fifth highest ratings of sightings in the country.

Suburban Bigfoot. Somethinf to ponder

St. Clair county Bigfoot

I received an interesting telephone call from a man in Port Huron, Michigan on the night of Tuesday 6/13/2018. He was somewhat nervous, because it was the first time that he had told his story to someone other than family and friends.

This narrative begins in the early 1980s while the witness was young man living on his family farm in St. Clair County, Michigan…approximately 8 miles northwest of Port Huron. The first incident occurred when his older sister and her husband where living in a trailer on the property. About 2am she frantically ran into her parent’s house, yelling for her father to grab a gun because something huge had literally picked up the end of the trailer and moved it several feet.

There were other incidents of this 7-8 foot red-eyed hairy hominid walking onto the property, literally getting into the livestock pens and storage areas. In fact, it has killed many peacocks and pheasants that the witness’ mother has been raising. The family was on high alert for many years, fearing that the beast would make an attempt to break into the house.

One interesting incident occurred when the witness and a friend made their way to the sand dunes on the shore of Lake Huron…which was several miles east of the farm. This beast had literally followed the pair and shadowed them throughout the day. The being was not aggressive, but made the witness very nervous not knowing what would happen.

The witness also explained that there had been a strange incident back in the 1940s, when two local girls had gone missing after picking berries. Eventually the pair turned up, but there was never an explanation given as to what happened. Many years later, the witness befriended the woman, who was then in her 70s. He recalled the incident with her. She confided to the witness that ‘we would have never found our way back if it were not for the big hairy man who brought us home.’

There was another incident in 1981, also in St. Clair County, that made the news:

Hairy, red-eyed

A ‘BIGFOOT’ IN THUMB?

BY Ann Cohen
News Staff Writer

Cindy Barone isn’t sure she wants to call the creature, “Bigfoot.”

But something big, hairy and red-eyed has frightened her family three times since September.

The relationship between Dogs, and Sasquatch

Sasquatches often pose no threat to our dogs, but then again there is no shortage of accounts of sasquatches killing and in some cases likely eating dogs. Even though on occasion sasquatches are the known culprits in the disappearance and consumption of people’s livestock and pets, that’s not to say these creatures have a preference for our domestic animals, but rather these opportunists have, as a whole, crossed their palates with about every living thing opportunity has afforded them. So, dogs are not a regular staple, and this article is not focused on the culinary habits of sasquatches anyway, rather more precisely focused on how sasquatches and dogs relate/interact. Although sadly a major facet of that interaction is dogs, on occasion, do make the menu or are simply killed. But that is just one facet of a more intricate study of sasquatch vs dogs.

HOW DO SASQUATCHES VIEW DOGS?
Sasquatches observe us with our dogs around homes and on forays in the forest. To what degree they grasp this symbiotic relationship is unknown, but dogs inject a different dynamic when sasquatches are trying to observe us or encroach on our property, and we can safely assume sasquatches can become encumbered and annoyed with how to handle the inquisitive dog. So, how do sasquatches view dogs? The oft stated paradigm for sasquatches and dogs is “sasquatches do not like dogs,” and generally they react adversely toward our dogs, but like most “catch all phrases” there will be exceptions.
Take for example reports of sasquatches with pet dogs. Yes! that’s an astounding claim. Albeit very few examples are extent, but if true, puts sasquatches into a more diverse convention than the beastly natures we’re more apt to saddle them with. One unusual encounter involved a mother and daughter observing a group of large dogs greeting an 8 foot tall sasquatch and then preceding to walk off with it into the woods Leader of the Pack, and in another encounter two men working a late shift observed a sasquatch with a large black dog lurking around a closed garden center.
So, are sasquatches capable of showing compassion and even having an affinity for dogs like we do with our furry friends? Here’s a tale that makes one ponder just that. One winter when a dog fell through the ice of a pond and was struggling for its life trapped in the frigid water, too far out for the distraught onlooker to reach it, in a great show of compassion and empathy a huge, hairy sasquatch, setting aside the imposition of exposing himself to the onlooker standing on the shore, ran out from the woods, grabbed the dog with its long arms, pulled it to shore, and then just as quickly disappeared back into the snowy trees. Hence, its possible sasquatches are complex creatures and just maybe even could take pets and show compassion toward dogs not unlike us. More examples would help to establish that. Bigfoot and his Pet Dog.
There is a video of a young Native American lady who encountered 3 sasquatches while riding her ATV on her reservation. One of her dogs following along with her responded to a vocalization by one of the sasquatches, going over to the sasquatch wagging its tail and laying down at its feet like it knew the sasquatch. The sasquatch then bent over and gently scratched its ear, petting it. The lady said most of the time her family kept that dog chained in the yard, and at times it would be found with animal bones it was gnawing on, but no one had any idea where the dog had got them. She suggested that particular sasquatch could have been bringing the dog animal remains as a gift. Indian Girl and Dog Meet 3 Sasquatches

THE LESS FRIENDLY SASQUATCH
But before we start getting all teary eyed at the altruistic, peacenik sasquatch playfully frolicking with puppies in a field of daisies, the greater preponderance of sasquatch/canine “interpersonal interactions” are of a negative nature. There are numerous instances of dogs cowering and refusing to venture forward when a sasquatch is present, even groups of seasoned hunting dogs in unison whimpering in fear. One speculation is dogs might be particularly susceptible to the infrasound that sasquatches can project at those they want to ward off. A few other large mammals are known to broadcast infrasound. Those are sound waves below our range of hearing that can produce varying effects including marked anxiety and fear.
In an area I research I heard about some guys hiking down a trail with their dogs when at some point along the trail the dogs flat refused to go any further. The men couldn’t do anything to make the dogs continue down the trail and they eventually had to turn back. In the movie, “The Legend of Boggy Creek,” which is a true story, their hunting dogs refused to go into the woods to track the sasquatch.

Bigfoot encounters in northern Michigan

So here’s the short version and recap of the adventure at his property, first off its huge massive and completely private they own 80 acres one way and like a thousand more acres curving around with so many trails old logging roads ect. I mean like there are three different cabins out there not including the house and barns it was amazing they have a couple 4wheelers but since it was getting late he drove us around on a side by side way deep back to as far as
The machine could go then we walked there was a cliff we made our way down to the thunder bay river which runs through his property the scenery was beautiful I felt like I was in Colorado with view I took plenty of pics and video first thing that we observed well me and his girlfriend Michelle both heard a loud thud boom boom thud as if something heavy hit the ground imagine a big bass drum boom boom twice Ernie and my son were ahead of us thrashing through the forest ahead of us they both never heard it. Did a couple of wood knocks and a couple woops but nothing came of it, it was now getting dark very fast so we made our way back to the side by side to head back and now it’s dark I mean super dark I brought to spotlights and the 4×4 had lights so we cruised back along the trails to get back to the house it’s pitch dark I’m catching eye shine everywhere mostly deer and elk saw porkipine elk deer huge white barred owl anyways it begins to get weird at this point so heading back on the trail we come flying down and there’s a huge piece of tree slammed right in the center of the trail so figuring this was not there when we drove in we get out I couldn’t with both hands budge it it was slammed in the ground so deep I’d say few feet it was odd but the exciting part was for the very first time I smelled it. There was a very strange pungent musky almost sulfur or. BRim Stoney smell it was thick and right there at the spot where the tree in middle of trail was I got excited because in my brain I new what that smell was we’ve all heard it from so many people’s encounters of what that smell was told him to grab his gun he had ar15 pistol he was spooked we got back in drive around it and headed back he stopped off to show us another cabin site where he stays camped in the past it was locked and dark when he used his keys and opened up the door we heard a growl low growl but my son caught it in record from his phone bizarre then we eventually went back to the house I heard one loud knock around midnight and strange banging like metal several times that night weird noises and of course animals scurrying about at one point I saw a light in the back of his woods leading up to the house don’t know what that was either no sightings no prints but I experienced fear by the house and a feeling of being watched it was spooky and another strange thing was when the fear set in to me and my son he stayed inside I went out with some equipment but I honestly got a feeling of fear this I can’t explain either the light post along side the door to mounted to the house started shaking and I watched it shake like vibrating enough that it was moving and making a tapping noise while I stood at back door and watched it the whole time this happened I was hearing something about 30 yards or so out from me walking moving through the leaves and brush slowly I couldn’t see anything the light was shaking which I’m not saying it was a Sasquatch because I don’t know it was and probably just raccoon deer or any animal. and I got freaked out I was alone Ernie and his girlfriend went to bed my son was pacing inside looking out the windows watching me it was real
Bizarre but It was a very exciting night we stayed til 1230 ish and left we went back to the area where that tree was placed blocking the trail just make sure that the smell we encountered last night wasn’t a normal smell in that area when we went back no smell of any kind it was super cold an rainy we walked a few miles today saw nothing I just got home hour ago and thought it write you to share one crazy night

Bigfoot sighting in Caseville Michigan

This encounter comes from a Michigan researcher, Bob Dagle. I have permission from him to republish this tory from his book, ” Reports of Bigfoot/ Sasquatch in Michigan”.

Anyone that is familiar with the state of Michigan, and more specifically Caseville, would know this is a small, quaint, town in Michigan’s thumb area. And each summer it has a ” Cheeseburger festival” that people from all over the state comes to for fun, food, and a great party. But there is more to Caseville than just that. This story comes to us from a witness, name not disclosed, occurred in the summer of 1968 around 10PM with the weather condition clear, calm, with a full moon.

Here is her story: When I was a young girl we  would go to Caseville every summer fro two weeks. I was about 12 years old when this sighting occurred. One night there was a ” weenie roast” on the beach and several families who were renting cabins were invited. Usually the beach was deserted at night. The moon was very full, and it was late as the sun was completely set.

I was on the beach standing by the campfire with a group of kids when a boy, and girl came running down from the sand dunes. The boy was excited, and yelling “we saw a witch”! A witch tried to grab us! There’s a witch up there. He was shaking, wild eyed and seemed very scared. He explained that he and the girl with him had been walking on a path in the sand dunes when they (quote) ” fell into a hole”. The witch had set a trap , there was a hole covered with branches and we did not see it. When we stepped on it, we fell in, then the witch came up to grab us just as we climbed out to run away. ( I realize now they probably fell into the creature’s den, and it returned to it to see what was up).

 

Scientific discussion on stick structures

This is a scientific discussion from a friend of mine. Dr. Chuck is what I will refer to him as. But he makes some valid points concerning Bigfoot, and the making of structures.

I believe that it is useful for us to do what we can to create as “dependable” a history as possible of
the “unwrapping” of the Bigfoot history, and that includes associated phenomena such as
stick/branch/tree-structures and related figures regardless of size. Perhaps Janice and Robin can comment
on how far back they were aware of such constructions which may predate their mentioning them to you.

As you know, some of the current “authorities” cast a “jaundiced” eye on the suggestion that the existence
of stick/branch/tree structures is due to creative activity by forest creatures, rather than by wind, snow and ice
weight, or other natural but inanimate sources. However, establishing the reality of branch structures as
creations by forest creatures is a far more scientific task than just a matter of “acceptance” or “rejection” by
self-proclaimed authorities.

If a construct involves “imported” branches, then, automatically, intelligence or purposeful action, must be
involved. The “purposeful” constructions of muskrats and beavers are well known and follow characteristic
patterns. They are famously located in association with ponds and streams, and rarely involve more than
basic interweaving, if at all. Gorillas, are not renowned for spontaneously producing such structures, despite
having the intelligence to do so, (as they have displayed in the learning of sign language in Gorillas and
laboratory talk” in Bonobos), as well as the weaving of sleeping nests in nature and having been observed
to tie simple knots. Fortunately, there are no known native primates to consider in the U.S., Russia,
Australia, Canada and the British Isles, and many structures are simply outside the physical range of larger
birds such as the Sarus crane which is quite common in the U.S. Bears will sometimes move branches into
simple piles for a hibernation nest but real interweaving is not known.

It will be generally harder to prove that only humans or Bigfoot can build the small scale structures. On
the other hand, for the very large-scale structures, the potential list of perpetrators is quite small, especially
on continents where elephants are not endemic. So that leaves only Humans and ‘Squatches as suspects
for the several types of stick/branch/tree structures that have been so widely documented. The possible role
of humans has to be evaluated both psychologically and practically, (such as considerations of tree weight,
frequency of structures, and wide distribution in both common and truly unlikely places).

For too long, we have fallen for the “UNSCIENTIFIC” fallacy that if the origin is not yet proven, an unusual
phenomenon must be man-made. Currently, if the source has not been documented in the act of producing
the structure, or the source is unproven, then the commonly “accepted” “scientific default” position is
erroneously believed to be either “Human” activity or misidentification. However, such a “supposedly scientific”
position IS NOT a valid scientific conclusion! Unknown” scientifically, MEANS “unknown,” period.

Many of our well known phenomena were once jeered at by “pseudo-scientifically thinking but ‘professional
scientists,'” (e.g. “rocks” “falling from the sky); the sun being a mass of molten lead powered by colliding
meteors (until “nuclear power” was accidentally discovered); the glowing filament of a light-bulb which did not
develop by gradual improvement of the candle but the reproduction of a natural phenomenon once outside of
our understanding or control.

So far, every so called “skeptical” explanation I have read is “scientifically invalid” since the suggested
“solutions” have never been tested. Why is it that the only skeptical “retort” to a (so-called) ‘Foot running
across the road in 3 strides is a “misidentification” of a bear. (A first hand eyewitness may have excellent
observational conditions and abilities, i.e. daylight and a highly experienced bear hunter.) Can’t the
“skepdeniers” be creative enough to at least claim them to be Humans in costume? And if so, where are
the “skeptics'” scientific experiments featuring humans in costume crossing a normal 30 foot wide roadway
in 3 steps as is frequently reported for ‘Squatches? Can a bear or hoaxer duplicate such ability?

It is scientifically invalid to propose such an hypothesis without CONDUCTING an experiment proving that
the “skeptical proposal” is a valid alternative, yet the “so called” “skeptical journals” fail to provide the
required experimental evidence. Even though our current scientific consensus offers rewards for such
“pseudo-scientific explanations,” they have never presented a critical paper denying a phenomenon, that
included the scientifically required experiments! Additionally, rewards are given to “skeptics” who weren’t
even there and therefore are in no position to criticize a detailed report from an experienced observer with
a clear view for observation! Why do we continue to let them get away with “non-sense” and “non-science?”

As for stick structures, even some highly respected ‘Foot investigators still claim that they are all “natural
accidents.” However, valid science has to respect the scientific method.

While some Ph.Ds. would consider these constructs to be “coincidental,” the true scientific method says
otherwise. A scientific fact must be statistically valid. That is, “what are the chances of this occurring at
random?” If the chances are smaller than 1 in 20 or p < 0.05, (equals 5/100 or 1/20), and a discernible characteristic of interest is present, in this case the geometric figure called an asterisk, something other than random distribution, (the Bell-Shaped curve) is at play. Anything outside of 95% of the population is considered "abnormal" and requires an explanation other than pure chance or coincidence. Even more so if the phenomenon is regularly duplicated as above. Notice that in each case above, the 3 main components of each structure overlap within their respective branch diameters. This is an extremely small target with a length/width consisting of only a small fraction of the total lengths of each of the 3 branches, 2-3 inches for the thickest of the branches. In both of these structures, the individual branches are approximately 6 feet or more in length. For convenience’s sake, lets use 3 feet which would provide 3 x 36” or 108 inches. Conveniently by my choice of a conservative example of 3 feet in length and a target width of 3 inches, this provides 12 chances of 3-inch target areas per branch. However, since the geometric shape requires overlap at the center only, there is actually a preferred central target-area-in-waiting of 3 inches on the first branch which would be achieved by a second branch landing at the center of the first regardless of wherever it was on the second. An overlap of the centermost 3-inch segment of a second branch anywhere on the first would establish a random, (equals non-target) geometric figure with a likelihood of only 1 times 12 but would only form a geometric figure such as a cross or "X" by overlapping the centermost 3-inch segment. This likelihood would be 12 times 12 or 1 in 144 chances. While the chance of pulling an Ace of Hearts out of a deck of cards is 1/52, if this is the pre-announced target, and that is what is pulled, then it is statistically significant. After returning the Ace to the deck, pulling it out a second time at random would only happen 1 in 2,704 times! Clearly, pulling the Ace of Hearts 3 times on demand would be so extremely rare that science would presume that there is some mechanism other than chance at work. (True, every card has a 1 in 52 chance of being drawn, however, collectively, drawing a non-Ace of Hearts would provide a likelihood of 51/52 or p = 0.98, far greater than 0.05 or 5% considered as the “normal” cutoff.) Similarly, having 3, three-inch central areas of branches overlapping exactly at the center would be far more rare than even this. The overlapping of the 3 would have only a p = 1/12 x 1/12 x 1/12 or an 1 in 1,728 chance. This allows us to accept slightly imperfect examples and still be far beyond the p < 0.05 level for statistical significance. Also, the previous calculations do not even take into account the additional factors of the 3 components overlapping in the same plane and making contact. The scientific method indicates that statistics is the only way to determine the chances of an occurrence. The insistence that "professorial judgment" is the final "determiner" is nullified by the scientific method. While keeping each kind of data in its place, let's no longer fail to recognize when the scientific method proves the criticism of the "skeptics," or even academic Bigfooters, wrong. Furthermore, since many scientific discoveries were not even dreamt of before being recognized, let’s not arbitrarily decide what we will or will not “accept." Rather, with suspended judgment, let us await new, totally unpredictable, "scientific discoveries”. Certainly, some categories such as repeated eyewitness reports of physical subjects by skilled observers under excellent conditions have a greater likelihood of eventually being raised to the level of scientific fact when appropriate evidence becomes available. However, it is not scientifically defensible to "dismiss,” out of hand, reports of other phenomena being responsibly reported but not yet scientifically verified to exist.

I was at Mammoth Cave like 15 years ago, but wasn't even thinking about Boogers. We saw a coyote on the riverboat ride, and the guide said there were no bears in Kentucky.

Bigfoot observed in the town of Fowlerville

Posted: 2018 September 18,

2018 September 16, 3:45A Fowlerville, Livingston County, Michigan
It was looking straight at my car. A listener writes “Hello Wes, This happened a couple days and it’s the only thing that’s been on my head for past few days. Just a little background I’m an overnight security guard for a company in Michigan and I watch their equipment over night. Well on this particular night I was located in a rural area south of a town called Fowlerville. Well to recount my encounter it was a little before 3:45 am because at my job we report every hour at quarter to because we only had one guard per site. Any who I was facing my vehicle that I was in towards a clearing that leads into a field nearby and I was watching videos on my phone and I look and see two deer come into this clearing so I watch them for about 2-3 mins and all of a sudden they darted backing in forest on the other side they came out from with their tail in the air and I went back to looking at my phone.

Then out of the top of my vision I see another figure move and I expected to see another deer but what I saw was no deer. What I saw was a “creature”. When I looked up it was looking straight at my car and instantly fear washed over me, my eyes started watering, I had shivers going all over me and i wanted to throw up. I couldn’t stop staring at this thing and about what felt like minutes but was probably seconds it went in the direction of the deer. To describe this creature, it was like what I was looking at shouldn’t be real. The thing had to be about 2 and half to 3 times taller than the deer it was chasing. The eye shine I saw off this creature was very intense, with a Amber to a reddish look to them. The thing had dark brown to black hair, it was hard to tell because of the time of day, and the face and hands were close to a tan from what I saw. The weird thing is that it had hair, it wasn’t fur, it was like if someone had long oily hair all over their body. Sadly I was too full of fear to actually get a good look at it’s face. I’m not actually sure if saw me or was just surprised my headlights were shining on it. After words I decided it was probably a good idea to have my lights on for the rest of the night. I really appreciate finally getting this off my chest, I’ve kind of had a feeling something undiscovered but to see it myself. I almost wish I kind of didn’t see it.

Infra sound and Bigfoot

Sometimes in the Bigfoot community you may hear researchers and witnesses talk about being “zapped”. The zap they are referring to is in fact infrasound. I think it is important that we have a basic understanding of infrasound and what it can do.

So today I wanted to take a little time and talk about infrasound. First, I guess we need to understand just what infrasound is and how it works.
Infrasound is sometimes called low-frequency sound. It is sound that is lower in frequency than 20 Hz or cycles per second, the “normal” limit of human hearing. Hearing becomes gradually less sensitive as frequency decreases, so for humans to perceive infrasound, the sound pressure must be sufficiently high. The ear is the primary organ for sensing infrasound, but at higher intensities it is possible to feel infrasound vibrations in various parts of the body.

One main thing about infrasound is the ability of it to cover long distances and to go around obstacles without loss of the sound energy.

When we think about Bigfoot and infrasound, some are quick to dismiss the idea that Bigfoot has the ability to produce infrasound. But we must understand that there are natural and man made sources of infrasound.

Some of the man made producers of infrasound would be things like wind turbines, diesel engines and other machinery.

We also know that several animals produce infrasound. Some of these animals that produce infrasound are: whales, elephants, hippopotamuses, rhinoceroses, giraffes, okapis, and alligators. In the case of whales, they have been know to communicate hundreds of miles using infrasound. Even the roar of the tiger contains infrasound of 18 Hz and lower. So, this knowledge alone can lend itself to the idea that Bigfoot may have this ability.

Some may say that Bigfoot is too human to make infrasound. But we know that some vocalists, including Tim Storms, can produce notes in the infrasound range. So it is still not off the shelf that Bigfoot has this ability.

Some of the natural producers of infrasound are things like earthquakes, volcanoes, waterfalls and lightning, just to name a few. This is why it is thought that animals know when a earthquake is about to happen, they perceive the infrasonic waves going through the earth. The 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake and tsunami is a good example of animals knowing about a natural disaster before it happens. Animals were reported to have fled the area hours before the actual tsunami hit the shores of Asia.

Now, here is where we get into some of the effects of infrasound on humans. Some studies indicate that infrasound may cause feelings of awe or fear in humans. This is commonly reported in the Bigfoot Community from researchers and witnesses. But that is not all. Because the person can not consciously perceived the infrasound, it may make them feel vaguely that odd or supernatural events are taking place. Could this possibly explain some of the wild claims by researchers and witnesses? I think it might and it should be worth considering.

In my opinion this might even explain some of the “disappearing Bigfoot” stories that we often hear about. It might even explain the idea of “mindspeak”, and “portals”, but of course those who have experienced this will not even consider they were hit with infrasound to this degree. In fact, I expect to be verbally attacked for even putting forth the idea.

The idea of infrasound can also overlap into several others areas. Some studies showed that some people get an uneasy or sorrowful feeling when exposed to infrasound. Some even reported getting chills down the spine or nervous feelings of revulsion or fear. Some have suggested that haunted location are actually producing infrasound and causing people to see ghosts and have a perceived paranormal experience. This makes me wonder if empaths, mediums or psychics have an ability to hone in on the infrasound and interpret what they are feeling. Just a thought, I guess.

It seems that infrasound can produce some of the same effects as high EMFs. I know in ghost hunting we often use EMF meters to check for high EMF. We know that high EMF can cause a person to experience numerous things that parallel infrasound effects.

Fear, paranoia, nausea, and a host of other effects can be caused by infrasound and high EMF. These are things we need to consider when we are researching. I know in the ghost hunting world we attempt to detect this type of thing, but I don’t think we do it near as often in the Bigfoot research field. We may be able to rule out some cases due to infrasound or high EMF but I still think there will be many that we can’t fully explain.

There are many more questions and scenarios to consider when it comes to infrasound, EMF and it’s effects on people and abilities. But we do need to know some basic information about each of these.

Bigfoot through history in Michigan

by Scott Harper
Michigan. The Great Lakes State. The Wolverine State. Michigan is the only US state to be made up of two peninsulas. Fifty percent of Michigan is covered by forest. Many lakes, ponds, and streams dot the peninsulas that make up Michigan, as well. Deer, and other wildlife are populous. In short, the state of Michigan is perfect country for Sasquatch—despite the heavy lake effect snow the region receives during the winter. And Sasquatch have been there for quite some time.

In 1878, a woman was hanging laundry in her backyard. A noise captured her attention. Upon looking up, she saw a 12-foot-tall, white Sasquatch in the cow pasture. The creature ran on all fours, leapt over a cow, stood up to its full height, then charged the woman, now running on two feet. She screamed, and ran into the house. The creature, chasing her, got tangled up in the clothesline. The woman ran from the house, to the lumber mill where her husband worked, refusing to return home for hours. When she did return home, with her husband, her husband found footprints, but no other sign of the creature.
A report filed in 1891 told of a Wildman of “gigantic proportions” with arms to below its knees, and “hands twice the usual size”. The “Wildman” was said to have killed a bulldog with “one swipe”. This took place in Gladwin County.
During the winter of 1917, in Ironwood, Michigan, two hunters saw a “man in a fur suit” steal a deer they had killed. The “man” made off with the deer carcass tucked under his arm.
News of a 12′ 7″ skeleton being unearthed in Jackson, Michigan made front page news on September 6, 1919.
Somewhere along the Saginaw River, in 1937, a Sasquatch was seen to climb from the river, rest leaning against a tree for a time, and then return to the river.
An area in Charlotte County Michigan bears the name Gorilla Swamp due to a string of sightings of a bipedal, hairy creature seen there multiple times in 1951.
A report filed in 1891 told of a Wildman of “gigantic proportions” with arms to below its knees, and “hands twice the usual size”. The “Wildman” was said to have killed a bulldog with “one swipe”. This took place in Gladwin County.

From 1962 until 1964 sightings of a creature dubbed the Monster of Sister Lakes was sighted off and on a number of times in Cass County. In 1964, a woman was chased into her house by a creature with long black hair, and glowing eyes. The woman estimated that the being weighed 500 pounds. It left footprints that were 6-inches-wide. It was thought that the creature that chased the woman had been the Monster of Sister Lakes.

August 13, 1965 brought a frightening account of an encounter with a 7-foot-tall, black- haired, growling Sasquatch. 17-year-old Christina Van Acker, and her mother, Ruth, were in a car, heading home. Christina was driving. Though they saw nothing in the road ahead of time, the car ran over something. After the bump, Christina stopped the car. Instantly, the Sasquatch reached through Christina’s window, grabbed her by the hair, and slammed her head into the car door. Christina passed out. Ruth, later claiming that there was nothing she could do, fled to get help. Apparently, and luckily, Christina survived the ordeal with nothing but some bruises.

Sasquatch have been in the area we call “Michigan” for a very long time—long before the Patterson/Gimlin film, which was recorded in 1967. They’re still there, too. Reports still come steadily from the Wolverine State. Years ago, I may have even had my own experience with a Sasquatch on Mackinac Island.

It was the late 1980s, or very early 1990s. I was on a vacation trip with my parents and best friend at that time. We were walking a trail in woodlands on Mackinac Island. Something off in the woods screamed. At the time, we chalked it up to a bobcat. Still, all four of us were unnerved, and turned around, and left the area quickly. To this day, I don’t know what screamed in those woods. If it was a bobcat, though, it was a very large one!
