St. Clair county Bigfoot

St. Clair County Bigfoot

Posted: 14 Jun 2018 10:13 AM PDT

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:

Possible Bigfoot break in in Mecosta

An individual from the Mecosta area sent to us a story of what could be a Bigfoot break in in the Mecosta area. We are trying to get more details as to what exactly happened, and I will update this story when details become available.

I am wanting to contact someone about an event that is not explainable .

This takes place at a private residence in the Big Rapids, Michigan area.
This happened about a month ago.
I have pictures of what I am about to relate
I have contacted one other Group, thought someone would come to check it out? As far as I know they have never contacted me back after our conversation?
This is about a woman that was sleeping and was woke up by a lot of noise like wood breaking and other noise, house shook and there was a big bang noise, then slience.
She waited what she said was just a few minutes before going to turn on her yard light, when she did she seen something that she assumed was a Deer going over the bank that goes down about a 100′ at a 60 degree angle. She had thought that the trees in her yard had fell because of the breaking wood sounds she had heard, but see saw that the trees were still standing. So she went back to bed.
When morning came and she went outside to find her 8’x10′ shed that is over her well pit had been broken into. She had some bird seed and suet cakes and yard tools and things that one puts in a utility building.
She saw the door was open and there was things from inside out on the lawn. She looked things over and see that some of the suet cakes had been opened and other bird seed spilled around. Also it broke a window in the door and has what looks like Blood !!! It was not on the window before this event. She assumed that it was a Bear and told my friend about it, he called me and told me about it.
As he told me the story something just did not seem right so I asked if he thought she would mind if I went and had a look at the site.
So I went and checked it out.
What I found was NOT what I expected !!!
I don’t want to have to type all of this out to explain it.
Would rather have you message me for more information.
What I found was that it WAS NOT A BEAR !! Even though the DNR said it was??!! Again it WAS NOT A BEAR!!!
I know this because there is not a Claw or Tooth mark anywhere on the building!!??? I saw this as soon as I got out of my truck and was walking up to the building!!?
This is a pristine building, there are NO marks ANYWHERE on the building.!!
I will send one picture of the damage, I have more. This is the corner that took the most damage it is over 8-1/2′ high.
This corner, like the other three, was picked up and then set down on the things that are trapped there. They are mashed in there and can’t be moved??
This building was OVER built, sheeted inside and out, roof also with 1/2′ OSB, roof strapped down to the sidewalls with a steel roof and is insulated. It was not fastened to the slab because it was heavy enough that it would never move….. so he thought!!
Again I have more to the story.
What ever it was started with the roof to get into it!!!!!
If interested message me and I would like to talk about the rest of this.
This is a RUSH letter as I was waiting on the other group and now time is running out on a chance to inspect it . I can only put them off on starting repairs until Monday the 21st. So I would really like someone to look at it, you can NOT get the full effect by the photos !!
This photo shows the most damage, but again the whole roof was ripped just about off. Had it not been built the way it was, the roof would have been ripped off.!!!!
PLEASE contact me, come and inspect before Monday !!
It will be worth the trip to see, I promise !!!
Waiting to hear,
Denny

Bigfoot in Detroit Michigan suburb

2016 March 20, 12:30P Westland, Wayne County, Michigan

Story provided by a former Michigan state policeman and private investigator.

On March 20, 2016 Mother and son observed two Bigfoots. This occurred while they were walking around on a high bank near a river-creek ravine complete with thickets and partially wooded areas when they heard some men partying loudly but unable to see them. As she focused on the direction of the voices her attention was drawn to a creature in a ravine down below on the opposite creek bank. It was standing with its back to the witness and noticed this creature was swaying back and forth leading the witness to believe it was listening to the men some distance away. She described the color as being reddish brown and stood approximately 9 feet tall judging the height of a branch it was standing next to. The witness says her son was standing a short distance from her and she called out to him to leave. In addition to this information she also mentioned she observed a large tubular shaped pile of waste at the time and used that a reference to the exact point where the Sasquatch was standing. Investigators went to site in October and located remnants of suspected BF poop but it was too decayed to take a specimen sample. After learning a little more on Saturday from the son, I think the big picture is that 2 BF’s were traveling upstream (east) in the river valley and their progress was stopped by encountering 2 men some distance ahead of them. The large reddish brown BF in the lead stopped and waited quite a while (10 Min?) for the men to move on, but they stayed. Witness was watching the lead BF from up on the high ground, the son was about 20 or 30 yards east of her and saw the (apparently) smaller black one, which was east (downstream) from the lead BF. Neither witness seem to know by what route the 2 BF’s left the immediate area of the sighting or became hidden view. Source: Michigan Bigfoot Research Group

Possible Bigfoot sighting at the Waterloo game area

The following picture was taken several years ago by a gentleman whom we will refer to as ” Gum Shoe”, he is a former law enforcement officer who wishes to remain nameless. He and another Bigfoot investigator Bob, were out in the Waterloo- Pinkney State game area examining what they thought might be a possible Bigfoot bed. Bob was on the ground examining the bedding, while Gum Shoe was taking pictures in the area. Gum Shoe did not realize until later while going back through his pictures did he see what looks like a dark figure looking back at him. A little unnerving thinking back to that day that that they were being observed. The figure was about 50 yards from the photographer at the time. In addition Gum Shoe relates that while this was going on he was feeling agitated, which could be the result of possibly being zapped.

I know this is another grainy, fuzzy picture but is still interesting. You be the judge.

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 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.

Cass County creature

‘Monster of Sister Lakes’ in Michigan
Posted: 03 Jul 2019 07:45 AM PDT

‘Huge Monster’ Frightens Girls at Sister Lakes

The ‘Monster of Sister Lakes’ made a daylight appearance today, terrorizing three young girls and causing one of them to faint. Joyce Smith, 13: Patsy Clayton, 12, and her sister, Gail, 13, said they were walking along a wooded road in Silver Creek Township about 9:15 AM when the ‘monster’ suddenly appeared. Joyce saw him first and promptly fainted. Patsy got a good look at the creature before it ducked into the woods. Gail was too far away to see it. After the ‘monster’ fled, the girls revived Joyce and they ran to a neighboring home and telephoned police. Sheriff’s deputies armed with rifles rushed to the area. Joyce said the creature ‘did not look like a man,’ Patsy, who said she saw it at close range, said it ‘looked like a bear.’ She said it was about seven feet tall and ‘had a black face.’ Earlier, authorities had ended the search for the ‘monster’ after thousands of residents poured into the area, creating a massive traffic jam. Area residents have been on edge in recent days since reports began circulating that the monster is back. Terrified residents have described the monster as about nine feet tall and weighing 500 pounds. Cass County sheriff’s deputies said the presence of the monster has been reported off and on for about two years. Mrs. John Utrup of nearby Dewey Lakes, Michigan, told the sheriff’s deputies the beast chased her into her home Tuesday night. She said she was saved when her dogs barked and drove the monster away. Other descriptions said it was covered with black hair up to its neck and had eyes that glowed like an animal that had a light shining in its eyes. Various witnesses said the monster made noises ‘like a tamed goose’ and ‘a baby crying.’ Cass County Deputy Sheriff Ernest Kraus said deputies were dispatched into the area in which the monster had been reported. They were armed with deer rifles and would stake out the area ‘until we solve this.’ But deputies said the area was inundated with a flow of curiosity seekers and all the officers were forced to direct traffic. ‘We had all the men we could spare up there and had to get some help from Van Buren County ‘to take care of the traffic,’a spokesman said. He said man cars were loaded with up to six people. ‘We don’t know what it is. We don’t even know if it exists,’ the sheriff’s spokesman said. ‘But there have been complaints by about 10 reputable persons and we have to check them out.’ Kraus said it has not been precluded the object of the extensive search in progress is a gorilla. ‘We have had no reports of any circus gorillas having escaped by the description of several persons matches that of a gorilla-hair up to the neck, widespread eyes and about nine feet tall. ‘Whatever it is, it could have been in that swampy and wooded area for some time.’ Authorities also theorized the creature could be a big bear. Tracks found in the mud showed an imprint of 3 3/4 inches at the heel and spanned six inches across the foot. The general area in which the monster has been reported is on the Cass Van Buren County line. The area is inhabited by year around occupants as well as the location of many summer resorts and cabins. Kraus said many witnesses agreed with Mrs. Utrup in the description of the monster. ‘That many people can’t be wrong, so there must be something out there,’ he said. He said that officers from two counties investigated similar reports about two years ago but were unable to locate the mysterious creature. ‘I hope we can find out what the score is,’ Kraus said. ‘Women are terrified and refuse to leave their homes without escorts.’ Gordon Brown, Dowagiac, Michigan, said he saw the monster Tuesday night in the headlights of his car on the farm of Harold Utrup, brother-in-law of Mrs. Utrup. ‘It’s no bear,’ Brown insisted. ‘It had a face like a human.’

Bigfoot forces Michigan homeowners to leave prpoerty

NCS Case File #71: Bigfoot Force Michigan Homeowners to Leave Property

Location: Holland, Michigan

Date: Multiple sightings from 2014 – 2017

Submitted by Barry

“We moved to the woods in Robinson township Mi. in 2004. In 2010 I began to notice things happening planters moved or broken. Sounds in the night. I passed the sounds off as birds not remembering birds are sleeping then. 

Over the next few years I became aware of HD’s (Hairy Dudes) living around my home. There was an entire group of them multiple young or small ones and very large ones. 

I became very alarmed and fearful. I decided not to tell my wife. I began to sleep in my clothes and with a 45/70 rifle. 

For 3 years all of my chickens ducks geese and turkeys were killed. All of my fruit was eaten right of my front lawn trees. 

Finally when I heard them on my roof I called a realtor and moved out. I witnessed what sounded like tiger growls and whoops knocks every night when they were around. You can feel it when they are around. 

To many things to go into all of it.”

The witness also included videos of the surrounding area and the property, as well as photos of tree scratches and breaks and a photo of a shadowy figure standing in the trees.  However, the witness requested not to show the photos and videos so we will honor this request.

Three separate Bigfoot encounters in Michigan

I have three encounters with what I believe to be Bigfoot or an unknown crpytid. As told to Squatchable news.

2008-
In late fall I accompanied my wife, daughter, and my mother to stay in a rental cabin near island lake, situated near the manistee national forest in northern lower michigan. As an avid mountain biker I brought along my bike and had planned several rides. The second day of my stay I set off on a ride about 6pm and entered a thick pine/cedar forest on what appeared to be a game trail. After roughly 1.5 miles of riding (I marked a way point on my GPS before entering the woods so I could easily find my way back) I noticed my front tire was very low on air. Shortly after I came to a very small clearing in the woods, it was clear cut purposefully with exposed stumps and new undergrowth. I set my bike against a pine stump and began to repair my front tire. To my right roughly 50-60 yards was a partially destroyed and burnt old RV. Seconds after glancing at it, a very loud thump came from within the camper. All I can describe it is as a “head” appeared in a broken window, which had to be over six feet from the base of the camper. From my distance all I could see was jet black fur and no noticeable ears, the eyes were not noticeable or black as well. It cocked its head to the right slightly as I mounted my mountain bike. I rode off quickly following my GPS map back to my starting point. Whatever it was I saw I believe followed me back to my cabin, as very foul and pungent odor lingered outside the next morning.

2009
For a short time while finishing my bachelors degree my wife and daughter lived with my dad. His house was at the end of a very long drive which backed up to hundreds of acres of woods and a large state recreation area called Waterloo in southern lower Michigan. After my parents divorced my mom who is a nurse moved in with her mother to provide care who lived right next door. December 3 I arrived home from school about 7pm. Shortly thereafter (I lived in an apartment in the basement) I hear a knock on the sliding glass door. It was my mother who looked very disturbed and frightened, and says she has been hearing howls all evening. I assumed coyotes as they were very abundant there. She was unshakeable in her opinion that it was not a coyote. I stepped outside onto the patio and shut off the exterior light. What I did notice immediately was a very strong odor being whirled around in the wind. I waited nearly 5 minutes and then I heard it, it was very near the tree line. Howling like I never have heard from a coyote, deep penetrating bass notes that sounded ragged and throaty. It was very windy and beginning to snow, and the howls seemed to occur in different locations. Due to the snow falling overnight no tracks or signs were observed.

Thank you for reading my encounters, I appreciate your time.

Bigfoot in Michigan’s thumb area

A ‘BIGFOOT’ IN THUMB?

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.

Something out there roaming the farm fields of Michigan’s Thumb area is emitting high-pitched screams by night.

“It’s the unknown that scares us,” says Mrs. Barone, whose family last encountered the creature Friday night at their farm home near Yale in St. Clair County.

Tina Barone, 13, said she and her sister, Roxanne, 12, went to the barn to do chores.

“Roxanne was scared to go into the barn because she’d heard noises before,” Tina said. “I said I would go in first, so I reached in for the light.

“I felt fur.

“At first I thought it was a goat or something, so I took my glove off and I touched it again.

“It didn’t look like anything. It was tall with red eyes and big and black and furry and stood on two legs. It had a deep growl.”

Tina told Roxanne to run back to the house. “It scared me so bad I just had to run.” Roxanne said. “I just can’t put what it looked like into any kind of form.”

Tina said she turned and began to walk slowly from the barn but “it started walking out behind me and I started running.”

The creature never tried to harm her, Tina said.

“It let me touch him when I took my glove off, ” she said. “The horses were running around, they were spooked. But it was just curious, whatever it is.”

The girl’s cousin David, 18, got his 16-gauge shotgun to scare the creature away.

“When it stood there and looked at me, it didn’t know what to do and I didn’t either,” said Barone. “It’s unbelievable. Its big.

“It was some kind of animal but I can’t describe what. It was about 6 feet; 6 or 7 feet 6. I didn’t shoot to kill, I just shot in the air to scare it away. It ran into the woods, making a funny noise.

“It was standing on two feet and had real long arms-between a bear and an ape, that’s what I think. I’ve never seen a Bigfoot, so I have no idea if it was one of those.”

Mrs. Barone, 33, said their first encounter with the animal came in September, when her neighbors’ barn door was ripped off at the hinges.

“I’ve had fences torn down and grain barrels dumped over and eaten,” she said. She said her dogs have raced off into the dark, barking at an unknown intruder, and their farm animals have been spooked by some unknown predator many times.

Mrs. Barone said the family is frustrated by the unwillingness of many people, including the local sheriff to take her story seriously.

Mrs. Barone did file a report of the Friday incident with the sheriff’s department but the report contains no mention of her daughter actually seeing an animal.

“There was nothing in our report to indicate this,” said a department spokeswoman, who speculated that Tina actually felt a raccoon or other small, friendly creature.

But Tina is sure she did not feel a typical barnyard animal. “From now on, I’m going to take the camera when I’m doing barn chores in case I see him again, because no one believes us,” she said.

A mysterious creature – called a Sasquatch, or Bigfoot – that walks on two legs and roams wooded areas from coast to coast has been reported many times from coast to coast.

While there is no documented proof of the existence of Bigfoot, films have been made that reportedly show the creature fleeing into a forest and footprints and other evidence have been uncovered which has led many people to believe the creatures do exist.

“I don’t know what it is but I do know it is something,” Mrs. Barone said.
