Bigfoot sightings from Washtenaw county Michigan


Washtenaw Co 1957  –  Sightings by 4 People

Date Received:  02 Dec 2003           From: R W

According to my old co-worker Charlie, there were a few sightings of a Bigfoot creature on M-17 [Washtenaw Ave] and Golfside Roads in 1957. [This intersection is about 1 mile east of US 23 in SW Washtenaw Co.]  … apparently a friend of Charlie’s saw the creatures, as did two people who were Native Americans. The latter of the two knew the creature from stories from their ancestors and were not afraid to go hunting in the woods.

Washtenaw Co 1958  –  Bigfoot Walks on Top of Truck in Augusta Township

Date Received: 16 Oct 2004  From: R W

A lady I used to work with named T B, told me about her mother’s experience with a bigfoot creature off Judd Road, near Whittaker Road in 1958, in Augusta Township [SE corner of Washtenaw Co]. This was on her grandmother’s farm. On the farm, there was an area where the land has a short gully and one day Tracy’s mother and grandmother were [there] in a pickup truck having lunch.  They were parked in this rut or culvert area with sort of a brim on either side.

They had finished eating in the early afternoon at around 13:30 hours when out of nowhere something very large and heavy, a large hairy ape that was close to eight feet tall, stepped off the brim [top of the gully] onto the top of their pickup truck and walked down the hood, stepping down onto the ground, and heading off towards the woods on the back part of the property. Apparently the bigfoot was walking very fast and stepped onto their truck and then walked down in front of it and then walked away looking back at the two ladies.

They thought at first this was a large brown bear, but it walked upright like a man down the culvert, away from the truck, turning into the woods 30-45 seconds later and then walked out of sight. As the creature walked off on two legs, it turned its upper torso back towards the truck and then headed into the woods.  This gave them a look at its face, and they both said the creature walked like a man but was slightly hunched over.  They said the face was flat, but looked rather “negroid” in appearance.

Moreover, it let out a loud yell that scared them both, and made them drive like a bat out of hell to get away from the area, in case it came back again. Also, from what I gather, the creature did put a dent in the hood, so this gives you an idea of how heavy it must have been.  After that day, when they would hear screams in the woods, they knew what it was.

Washtenaw Co Summer1974  –  Suspected Bigfoot Encounter Near Ypsilant

From: R W

When I was nine years old I used to live about a mile away [west] from there [1957 Washtenaw Co report] on Packard east of Carpenter. Very often my family and I, including our German Shepherd would take a walk into the large wooded area south of Packard Road. In the middle of the woods there was an entrance into the forest that was hard to find if you walked by it, but inside was an interesting area that had wood set up like an airplane or a marker. The inside had grass in a dome shape much like the photo at The area inside here smelled like a wet dog and had food cans and other items, which lead my father to believe that teenagers were using the area for parties at night.

One day during the late summer of 1974. My mother, father, our German Shepherd, and I, went for a walk down the trail that day, which was cloudy and in the upper 70s. Moreover, as we got closer down the path our dog was not his usual outgoing self, acting like something was bothering him. The closer we got to the area where the fort, as I liked to call it, was located at, the more nervous our dog became. Likewise, I had the feeling I was being watched and my father had sort of an uneasy feeling also, and he was a man who served with General Patton during World War II, who wasn’t afraid of anything.

However, there were sounds of branches snapping every 30 seconds, like something was watching, moving carefully trying to watch us, which made my father feel very uneasy. Moreover, our dog had his tail between his legs and was staying really close to my father. Then came a loud crack, like a limb about 6-8 inches in diameter, was either stepped on or broken. This was followed by a slightly less loud one and all of use thought that it must have been a deer in the woods and my father decided it was best to leave the area. Interestingly, as we walked back the way we came, the snapping of the branches seemed to indicate that whatever it was in the woods was following us.

Then we got out of the wooded area and our dog became less timid and kept looking back at the woods, until we crossed over the old railroad bed. I don’t know if it was a Bigfoot stalking us in the woods, but years later when reading about all the sightings, this had some very similar characteristics.

Washtenaw Co 1981 –  Juvenile and Adult Bigfoot Seen by Children Near Dexter

Date Received: 24 Nov 2003  From: R W

This sighting took place around 1980 through 1982 north of Dexter. My old friend Chad  was telling me that when he was around six years old, he and other friends would go out and play in an undeveloped field with forest around them. Sort of an area with sand dunes, but this area has since been built over with houses. Apparently, there was a juvenile bigfoot that was around 5’6″ tall and would watch the kids playing. One time they would motion for the bigfoot to come and it would motion back with its arm for them to come, but they were too scared to do so. They saw this creature a number of times along with a full grown adult bigfoot. On more than one occasion, the smaller bigfoot would wave back to the kids, standing at the edge of the forest.

Washtenaw Co Late 1980’s  –  White Bigfoot Chases Truck Near Ypsilanti

Date Received:  28 Nov 2001 From: R W

In the late 1980’s, two people I talked with claim that while driving eastbound on Geddes Road, east of Harris Road [east of Ann Arbor], that they were paced by a white humanoid creature, that resembled a large man covered with fur. They were chased by an all white ape-like creature that was running on two legs down Geddes Road, that was keeping pace with their pickup truck at 64-80 km/hr  [39-48 mph]. This location would have been just west of the dark brown bigfoot creature that my Mom and I saw while driving down Geddes west of Ridge Roads last August [of 2000].

Washtenaw Co. 1995 – 2000  –  Experiences with Suspected Bigfoot Near Willis

Date Received: 12 Oct 2004 From: Scott I

After writing to you, we have been uncomfortably reminded of the situation at XXX Church Street [where Scott and family used to live, near the town of Willis in the SE corner of the county]. My oldest, Scott Jr., who still lives in the area and he has heard of other stories from friends in the area and he says he does not walk around the dirt roads after dark anymore. Before the scream incident, they would walk anywhere at any time all around those unlit dirt roads.

[Writing about] This has been very comforting for us because sometimes we don’t know if we’re letting our imaginations run away with us or if the stuff we experienced really happened. I especially feel badly about my sons being afraid of walking anywhere in the dark or being afraid of leaving a bedroom window open on a cool summer night. I want them to recall their childhoods as a great time. They still feel the negative emotions to this day.

Okay, a list of instances-

The summer of 1995 – one morning I found our large garbage can (the kind supplied by a company to be emptied by a truck with a robot arm-a small dumpster) emptied (not ripped and scattered around) and certain bags opened and contents removed. The can was resting upside down against the fence next to the garage. Our dog, a wonderful Shetland Sheepdog named Sonya, was barking like crazy around midnight or 1:00 AM.

The spring of 1996 – we just moved to Willis the previous fall. There was a crop of something (it wasn’t corn, but was something edible) in the field adjacent to our property. The oldest and youngest apparently saw glowing eyes along the trees in the gully along the property line on the east side of the house. They were about three quarters of the way down towards the back fence. They said they were too far apart and too high off the ground to be a cat or other small animal. Also, they were well behind the fence. (I occasionally saw cats sitting on our fence and their eyes reflected the flashlight.) This happened late at night multiple times for about a week. Again, our dog was freaking out.

Occasionally, during our years there, on many occasions, my ex-wife mentioned that she felt she was being watched while getting out of the car after work. Her schedule was 3:00 PM to 9:00 or 10:00 PM and she would mention this when she had groceries to get out of the trunk. These complaints prompted us to always leave a car space open next to the house. I parked on the gully side of the driveway. This didn’t stop her sensations, but she did have the comfort of my car between her and the woods. This was very important to her. She NEVER parked next to the gully and the woods at the edge of the field on that east side of the house. Her complaints were always in warm weather.

Around June of 1997 – I went out shopping for food around midnight one Wednesday around 12:30 AM at the Belleville Meijer and I got home around 1:45 AM. While removing the bags from the trunk while being parked against the bushes on the edge of the gully and field, I heard the strangest “jabbering” sound probably less than fifty or sixty feet into the corn stalks.  I’d seen lots of raccoons and opossums and other wildlife and I immediately wrote it off to one of those animals. In retrospect, it sounded as if it came from a larger animal than a raccoon.  It sounded like some kind of medium high pitched mumbling. I’ve scoured all the sites that have sounds and there is one sound at the “Sierra Sounds” site that is supposed to be two creatures excitedly reacting to food and it sounded sort of like the part that went “wabba wabble” real fast, but the pitch of the sound I heard was much higher.

During the summer of 1999 or 2000 – The fence around the yard was slowly being blown down by the beginning of spring-end of summer storms. The area most affected was the east fence (I have no idea why-you would think the whole fence would be prone to damage?), along the strip of land that was behind the driveway, right behind the garage. Every so often, I asked the boys to gather up the boards that recently fell down and stack them next to the fence posts and I would spend an occasional Saturday rehanging them. On more than one occasion, I found them thrown in the gully or re-stacked on the other side of the fence. Once, I found them in the gully about two thirds of the way down the yard, close to the park behind the yard. I thought the boys were trying to build a fort out of them and I gave them hell for moving them and snapping a few into pieces, but they swore they never touched them.

The summer of 2000 – The first summer Saturday night my boys had the “burn the schoolbooks” bonfire party which is the night of the screams. Whenever they get together and talk about it, the fear is all over them. They always mention how the tree overhead (the big tree in the middle of the back yard – you can still see the fire pit) shook from the volume of the sounds. The panic on Bob’s face the following Tuesday night when he heard it again in the side field really upset me. I never want my sons to feel like that around their own home.

Our little dog barked at anything all the time. But there were other times, usually after 1:00 AM that Sonya would bark like crazy in the kitchen, looking either towards the back door or the side of the house where the cars were parked. When this happened I would grab my shotgun and cop flashlight (Streamlight Stinger – very bright) and run outside and look around the garage and cars and the edge of the field across the gully, but I never saw anything. I would always praise my little dog because she warned me of trespassers so well, but it really got old running outside to look around.

My oldest son, while hanging around with the kids in the gang, heard stories of the kids sleeping out in the woods behind the house or in the middle of the field east of our driveway in an area that was like a little island of trees and grass just big enough for two or three tents, and apparently climbing up trees and waiting for the Bigfoot family to stroll through the paths in the woods late at night. I don’t know if they ever saw anything. Apparently, at first, it was considered a game, but something happened to put a quick and final end to this. I don’t know what happened though, but I know it was abrupt.

Also, there were stories of a farm family having something scaring ladies right on their own property.

One of the things that has stuck in my mind has to do with my little dog, Sonya. She was a sweetie and when we first got her.  Because of her natural boisterousness, we had to tie her up when she went outside. There were times too numerous to count that she would run to the end of her rope towards the back (pointing towards the woods), bark like hell, then turn around and freak out barking and clawing to come in. Not just her normal, Shetland nervous stuff, but true panic. Many times I grabbed the shotgun and light and went looking around, but I never noticed anything unusual. Towards the end of my years there, because of all of the experiences we had there, I got in the habit of grabbing that powerful light and scanning the yard just to look around, but I never saw anything the least bit unusual.

Another tidbit that struck me at the time – the fear of being outside that the remnants of my family felt while they still lived there after I moved away. All of them, Scotty, the oldest, Russell, the youngest, and even the ex [wife] were uncomfortable without me around acting fearless if the dog freaked out or whatever.

You know, if I take all of this, and I’m sure I’m leaving stuff out, and reexamine it, it doesn’t add up to much of anything except for those screams. I don’t know exactly what went on while we were there, but I’m pretty sure something was coming through our area at certain times of the year when there was food available and a few members of my family, especially my boys and our dog, were very aware of those times..

14 Sep 2006 From: Scott  I

It is interesting to note two things that stick out in my mind: (1) my ex-wife would not go out after dark unless I was with her. She parked her car next to the house, while my car went near the gully side. (2) My little one for some reason, who was really small then, still doesn’t like windows uncovered and we live near houses on both sides of us. He recently made me cover the windows here with paper or curtains or blinds so he can walk in the kitchen. My middle boy, the one we lost, spoke frequently of hearing heavy running footsteps late at night, that shook him awake on the second floor.

I used to walk the property at night armed to the teeth and never saw or felt much of anything. But the garbage was moved around and stacked, the big log was moved, I heard mumbling or what I called at the time”jabbering”. Our dog would freak out occasionally. The boys also told me, one weekend when a bunch of school friends stayed over, that they saw red “lights” that looked like eyes out in the back yard, not far from the big tree out back, which is really close to the glass door to the deck. I told them it had to be fireflies.

I wish I heard those screams so I would be able to convince myself something really happened there. Actually, my whole family was affected. After my wife and I split up and Bob and I moved away, the [other remaining] boys told me things got lots weirder – lots of hair on necks standing up – lots of noises in the bushes along the gully on the east side of the property. And the ex left the boys home a lot while she tried to replace me.  Also, the fence boards on the east side of the property [which] were stacked up by the boys and I, and we always found them rearranged or, a few times, thrown around, some as far away as 50 feet. I just don’t understand. How? Why? And, boy, do they remember the creepy feelings they experienced. Yes, you tell me, are we nuts?

Washtenaw Co 05 Sep 2001

Sighting, Tracks, and Vocalizations

From: M A

This time we heard whistling and like something was chatting with one another in that animal way. It almost felt like it was happy to see us. We also found foot prints that were 13″ front of big toe to heel and it was 7″ across. We could not get the length of its gait. I think that he is still there. Lot of deer tracks. My friend seen a white BF jump right into the woods. I think there is a family there. We also seen small prints too. I did not have the courage to go see what it was that was making noise. It was mixed with whistle and moans and growls. It almost seemed that it was following us on a ridge above us, smart BF. We did not get a scent.

I think he is waiting for the corn to get ripe. It was great, but I did not want to meet up with a youngster for fear of mom showing up and protecting its kid. Also we did see some eyes with the flashlight. They were like a red-orange color on the outside and a big pupil, black.  I kept on spotting it with the flashlight and it moved away. The sound sounded like chimps or some type of a monkey.

I am going to study up on primates and their behavior. I will be going to the library and get as much info I can on primates. I think we can get him or her to get in close with enticing them with fruit. I just need to be brave if he comes up close. Well this is all I got. Also, did see a tree that was broken over on the trail, the tree was about two to three inches wide, it was cracked over the trail.

Washtenaw Co 2001

Two Bags of Fish Taken from High Above Ground

Date Received:  28 Nov 2001
From: R W
I asked a friend of mine who is a deputy sheriff if he has heard of anything unusual happening and he said no. However, his friend did tell of story where a guy had come back from a three day fishing trip on Lake Eire catching Walleye, and he decided to put them in two large bags. He used a ladder to put them up in back of his barn roughly 4 meters off the ground and went inside to clean up. The man came out 30 minutes later and both bags of fish were gone! He thought that someone might have used the ladder to get them down, but it was locked in the barn. Whatever it was had to reach up and yank them down and carry the bags weighing about 40 pounds each into the woods. Since there were no suspects the police could not do anything about it. He did mention that he felt like he was being watched the whole time. This was someplace out in the Cherry Hill and Stommel roads area.

I think they are more intelligent than we give them credit for. I believe that Bigfoot should not be hunted down like some sort of animal as it’s not dangerous. You would have a lot of people up in arms if they were attacking humans, but they are not. In most cases they exhibit very shy behavior and are quite timid.

Broken Branches and Odd Moaning Noises Near Chelsea

From: B M

Wednesday morning I was letting the dogs out about 7am and there was a strange deep moaning coming from the woods behind the house. It honestly sounded like a cow (Uggggghhhhh…….Ugggggghhhhhh) but there are no cows back there and it definitely was not a Moooooing sound. Maybe an elk? [Editor’s note:  Nearest known elk would be at least 150 miles north of this location]  Not sure what they sound like. In any event…it was very loud even though it sounded 100 yards away.

To add to the strangeness….last night around 8-ish I was out in the back again and one of my cherry trees has two freshly broken limbs about 20 feet up. The leaves are still green and growing but the branches are broken back against the trunk of the tree. Most strange. Makes me wonder what was up there to break them off. They re about 1.5 – 2 inch diameter limbs so I can’t blame the coons on this one.

Washtenaw Co, July 2003

Upright Walking Bear Reported

Date Received:  05 Feb 2004
From: R W

Back around early July, 2003, there was a report received into the Sheriff’s Dept, about bear that was seen walking upright across a road through a yard just before sunrise, in the area of Begole and Warner Roads in York Township. The patrol car checked the area 45 minutes later and found no trace of it. I wonder if that might be the same creature?

[This is in the SW corner of the county between Milan and Slaine]

Washtenaw County,  22 Nov 2003

Odor, Screams, Tree Knocking and “Large Hairy Object” Reported

From: R W

Apparently, bigfoot must be on the loose up in Northfield and Salem Townships here in Washtenaw County. Over the summer there were two reports that lend themselves to possible activity in those locations.

The first was back in late August up on Seven Mile Road between Angle and Tower Roads. [Northeast corner of the county]. Residents reported a very bad odor coming from the woods, with loud screams being heard. Also, some resident reported tree knocking in the area at night.

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

The second one was on North Territorial Road west of Dixboro Road. At around 11:00 p.m. a motorist reported a “large hairy object” laying in the road that she had to swerve in order to miss hitting. When the police got there 10 minutes later nothing was nothing found. [This is location is about 4 miles SW of the one above, and about 6 miles NW of downtown Ann Arbor.]

Strange but interesting!

Bob Daigle wrote:  ”Did you talk to the person who saw the “large hairy object” in the road?”

R W:  No, this was handled by the police department. They found no animal, but did find some broken headlight glass, like a car did hit the object. The person who reported the incident on the cell phone did describe it as a “large hairy object…had to swerve into the other lane to avoid it.” Since the police did not have a complainant or nobody wanted contact, there was no report made about the incident. Time lapse from the cell phone call to when the officer checked the area was 15 minutes.

Bob Daigle wrote: “It would be interesting to hear all details she could recollect. Possibly someone else had just recently struck a BF with their car, knocking it unconscious, but never reported it.”

R W:  I was thinking the same thing myself, but the police were busy with a domestic assault which takes priority.

Washtenaw Co Late Nov 2003  –  Sheriff Investigate Deer Deaths in Superior Township

From: R W

Speaking of deer, the Sheriff’s Department went out to the area around northern Superior Township [just NW of Ann Arbor] last week to investigate a series of deer deaths. Apparently, a farmer found several deer just inside a wooded area neatly lined up. The apparent cause of death is a mystery, since they were not shot or had arrows in them. All did have their backs legs twisted and they were slit open. However, I have no idea as to why or what caused this to happen, but it must have spooked the farmer into thinking something out of the ordinary was going on. Apparently, the Sheriff’s Dept. turned this over to the DNR for investigation. This is the second such incident in the area, the other being two, maybe three months ago in Salem Township.

Washtenaw Co 13 Sep 2004  –  Midnight Scream

From: D W

Last night (at my house) around midnight (windows open) I heard a scream that sounded much like a BF scream. It was a long high pitched tone that sustained the high pitch with just a slight ramp up and ramp down tone during the beginning and ending of each scream. Also at the end of each scream, there was a ga ga ga ga sound. So it went “<<<<scream>>>> ga ga ga ga <<<<scream>>>> ga ga ga ga <<<<scream>>>> ga ga ga ga <<<<scream>>>> ga ga ga ga. I believe the sound came from the north. It was not real loud, but loud enough for me to get this much detail.

Washtenaw Co 03 Nov 2004  –  Mutilated Deer Found in Ypsilanti Township

From: R W

Several mutilated deer were found off Tuttle Hill Road, in southern Ypsilanti Twp., north of the community of Willis. The deer were found in the woods and apparently were well concealed. Apparently, who or what put them there did not want them to be found. Apparently, the deer were found to have broken legs and their insides were removed.

Washtenaw Co 20 Nov 2004  –  Ape-Like Creature Seen Crossing Trail; Gray Female Observed

From: R W

While listening to the [police band] radio today, the DNR received a report from two people inside the Waterloo State Recreation area of large 7′ tall, ape-like creature with dark brown fur crossing a trail near Cassidy Lake. The creature was carrying a freshly killed deer under it’s arm according to the two eyewitnesses who saw it cross 25 feet in front of them and apparently they wasted NO time in leaving the area in fear.

From what I remember, they were close to or within 1.5 miles of Cassidy Lake, “on a trail that has a bend on it.” I  suspect that they were near or closer to Green Lake in the south side of that area.

Interestingly, one of the DNR officers mentioned that he was wondering if it was the same creature that he spotted last month on the west side of  Welch Lake Rd near Seymour Rd [about 7 miles west of  the above sighting, which is 5 miles west into Jackson Co. from the Washtenaw Co. border]. He [the other officer] said no, that creature was dark gray in color and clearly a female with breasts from what he could see through his binoculars, but he was only able to observe it for 45 seconds before it moved back into the woods out of sight. Apparently, they must have had an anti-poaching sting going on, or looking for hunters in an area that is off limits to hunting and the creature was observed very nicely from a distance with high-powered binoculars by the DNR officer.

Moreover, he mentioned that the Sheriff’s Dept., had a report nearby north of Chelsea, where a hunter found a large buck with its head tore (twisted?) off, and it’s insides torn out. The hunter had a very weird feeling that he was being watched and heard some large branches snap, he left the area and called the police.

Both of the DNR officers concluded that it was probably the Sasquatch in the area that was responsible. However, if anyone asks him what is he is doing out in the woods with a camera or collecting any evidence, [one of the DNR officers said he would]  just tell them that he is looking for signs of poachers. One thing the DNR mentioned, was that no hunter in their right mind would have turned down such a prize buck like the one found north of Chelsea, which was easily a 12 pointer. Apparently, the head was ripped off the body and thrown several yards away, and the poor thing looked like it was beat to death, then had it’s insides cut open and emptied out. However, they did not mention anything about the liver being missing.

I really think that the DNR investigates Sasquatch sightings, but they don’t divulge this to the general public. I mean how would it look if the DNR was out in the woods and they were asking the public if they saw Bigfoot walk through the area lately? However, I have heard three DNR officers say they have actually seen one of these creatures while out in the field, and they have no doubt about it being a reality.

After hearing this today, and all the other reports of dead deer found in the woods across northern Washtenaw County, especially from Whitmore Lake west possibly into Jackson County, leads me to believe that there is a family of Bigfoot creatures in that area. Moreover, I think as the deer herds move this time of the year, so do the Bigfoot creatures following them.

Washtenaw Co 08 May 2005  –  Variety of Strange Noises Reported Near Dexter

From: R W

FYI: The Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Dept., received a call in the area to the northwest of Dexter around the north side Island Lake just before 1:00 a.m., reporting strange noises coming from the woods. Upon arrival, deputies are currently hearing a loud screeching, howling sound from two different locations, with one being closer than the other. Moreover, they are hearing an occasional “knocking” sound but can’t pinpoint the source. Likewise, they are convinced that it’s a large animal with a wide vocal range. However, the officers are unable to locate them at this time.

Washtenaw Co 07 July 2005  –  Sheriff’s Officer Reports Screams Near Huron River Drive

From: B M

I chatted with a Washtenaw county sheriff’s officer near me and he passed this along:

”I did take a run on Huron River Drive near the church in the woods.  A church employee was leaving the church after midnight and heard what she thought was a woman screaming somewhere in the woods. I responded to the area and as I pulled into a gravel two track type road east of the church near the woods I did hear a loud screaming type noise coming from somewhere deep in the woods. I exited the scout car and walked near the woods in order to hear it better and to try to better locate the area of the woods the noise came from. The loud noise.(a screaming type screeching type noise which could be mistaken for a human was heard every minute or so.) After listening to the noise for a minute or so I was under the impression that it was an animal making the noise, what kind I could not begin to guess (possibly big foot I don’t know)

However to make sure I drove my scout car further east and pulled in a driveway and went into the backyards closer to the woods and to the noise. I could still hear the noise and was sure it was some kind of animal. It continued to make the same loud screaming type noise over and over. I went over to four persons in their back yard who was gathered around a campfire and asked them if they knew what the noise was. They stated they did not know but also thought it was an animal of some type, they further stated they heard the same animal making the same type of noise the last year. I called clear of the incident and told dispatch that it was some kind of animal making the noise.”

Bigfoot sightings in Macomb county Michigan


Macomb Co Jan 1981  –  Bigfoot Seen Leaning into Dumpster, Then Chases Vehicle

Received: 27 May 2009 From: J R

Location: 34 Mile Road and Townsend Road, 2 Miles north of downtown Romeo

My girlfriend and I were out driving to a friend’s house after work.  It was approximately 10:30/11:00 pm in late January and we were traveling north on Townsend Road, we reached the corner of Townsend and 34 Mile Road and on the right was a house set back off the road with an industrial size dumpster in the driveway towards the back, by the garage. Leaning into the dumpster was a creature on two legs going through the contents.  It was totally covered in fur from head to toe. There was about a foot of snow on the ground and the moon was shining so we had a pretty good view.

We stopped at the corner and I backed up to get a better view.  It looked at us – the face seemed to be clear – like a bearded human.  It turned towards us as we turned the corner.  It began to run at us across the lawn.  Of coursed we were scared and I floored it.  It came running across the lawn quite quickly and, since I was driving, once it was behind us I never looked back – my girlfriend said it quit running once we
got past the house and stopped and just stood there.

I was always scared to go back to that area.  The houses were few and far between at the time in that area and there were lots of wooded areas around there, also some farm areas.  It was quite tall and totally covered in fur – it was not a fur coat, it was total body coverage of hair – like I said previously – he stood tall enough that he had to bend over into the dumpster easily – he was not reaching over but looking into the dumpster.  I guess we figured he was just looking for food and we interrupted – there was not much traffic out in that area.  This was not a bear or a human, I am positive this was a Bigfoot and my friend will definitely corroborate the sighting.
He stood tall enough that his chest was at or above the top of the dumpster – totally  covered in brownish fur – looked the length of a retriever’s fur  –  it was full moonlight with about a foot of snow on the ground.  It was not snowing at the time and the roads were relatively clear.  It ran after us  on two legs – I am positive this was a bigfoot and so is my girlfriend.  We were not drinking or anything else at the time. It was scary – we slowed because we couldn’t figure out what it was.  There were a lot of woods in the area at that time, and a lot  of farmland.

Additional Comments by Witness:

–one of the scariest things I have ever seen – that thing was across a piece of two acre property in very few steps. It happened in winter of 1981, late January or early February – I know there was a lot of snow on the ground – probably a foot and it was fairly fresh .  People make fun of me when they hear the story – but the two of us that saw it did not find it funny at all.  I know it was quite a while ago but I can still picture where and what it looked like very clearly.

Macomb Co July 2000  –  Large Ape-Like Creature Seen Carrying Dead Chickens

From: Mrs X thru Bobbie Short

The nearest city is Richmond and Lindsey is the closest road. I told my parents but they laughed at me and think some person stole the chickens, but they have no excuse for the blood left behind although there wasn’t too much. What happened was a large ape like creature ran through my front yard with dead chickens in his arms. He had killed some of our hens and was running off with them. I had just gotten home from work around 2 pm and my family wasn’t home yet. I was pulling up the driveway. I didn’t even get out of my car I left immediately. This thing was tall, about 7 or 8 feet, with darkish hair very shaggy looking; it looked sort of like a very large chimpanzee with much more muscle.

Please contact me about this incident. Should I be worried please, I am very worried.

[Unable to contact the witness. The general location is in northern Macomb Co.]

Macomb Co Fall 2008 –  Hunter Followed by Suspected Bigfoot

Date Received:  28 Jan 2009 From: Max

Man a lot of people have seen it [bighfoot], even friends of my chiropractor. A guy at work was run off of property behind his house he had rented to hunt deer. North east of Romeo Michigan west side of McKay Rd. Found a deer in a tree with a mangled rear leg during the deer bow season. Was scared off by a “Big thing that growled very loud” not a cat, bear, dog, this thing was “something else”.  Followed him all the way back home growling all the way, just staying out of sight. He said it was no great cat, dog or bear, kept just out of sight, growled like something he never heard before (LOUD). Eventually something came back and ate it all.  I have worked with him for over 20 years, I find him very credible and he does not like story telling. He is still scared and is concerned if his dogs will be safe. I told him to keep his dogs out of the woods and told him he was dealing with [what] I think is a rogue male.

Bigfoot sightings in Oakland county Michigan


Oakland Co 23 Oct 2005  –  Suspected Bigfoot Noises in Highland Rec Area Near Milford

From: A W       Date Received: 1 Nov 2005

I am a bow hunter, and 10-23-05 was in my blind at 5:30AM in the Highland recreation area.  1 hour before sunrise. I heard stomping unlike any deer, almost a teasing stomping behind me, the sticks I heard breaking were larger than any deer had ever broken that I have heard. This went on until 1 hour before sunrise when I heard something ‘howl’ at me from my left a hundred yards away. It wasn’t like a coyote howl, it was more like the scream of the howler monkeys that have been on survivor this season. I rationalized it as a possum being attacked by something at the time, since I have heard them scream many times in different ways. But I was wondering if you have had any sightings in the Highland Rec area north of Milford.

Referencing bigfoot noises  –  From A W   –  Date received:  7 Nov 2005

First of all, I am not afraid to go back to the spot, I will be hunting it this week and weekend. This Bigfoot could have came right up behind me and twisted my neck off, he didn’t, he wanted me out of there. Especially since at first I thought it was a big deer wandering up on me and I was afraid to turn and spook it. I am still skeptical, I have spent countless thousands of hours in the woods from The Upper Peninsula down to Oakland county, and have never seen sign, or heard any Bigfoot. The sound was loud. And it seemed to be directed at me.

I didn’t look for tracks, because at the time I had to rationalize it as normal incident with wildlife. I have heard rabbits get attacked by a coyote and their screams are louder and more disturbing than this. It wasn’t a dying rabbit, so I imagined the sound as a possum getting attacked  by a bobcat or a owl or something. Now that I think about it, the sound could be described as a woman trying to imitate a howler monkey from the “Survivor” TV show.

I’ve heard deer break 1/2″ sticks and it sounds like a person slowly breaking a 2″ stick over their knee in the dark quiet of morning. What these noises sounded like were when we would look for kindling we would break the lower branches off of the reachable bottoms of pine trees and they are dead so you can snap a pretty good size branch with an open fist or a boot. I’d guess these were 1-2″ branches or sticks being broken quickly like that. When a deer breaks a fairly big branch, he doesn’t stomp on it, he kind of steps on it and you can tell it is a non-violent break, the noises I heard were more violent.

After thinking about the howling, I think it was more of a defiant howl, not an attempt to scare me. The sticks were trying to scare me but not the howl. It was almost as if it decided to leave as dawn broke and as it was leaving off to my left up on a hillock it was sort of a howl.  I was much more scared of the stomping, when I heard the howl, it was relief that it was not unseen behind me, but off to my left up on a clear hill.

Oakland Co 13 July 2006  –  Sighting Near White Lake, MI

Hey my name is Curtis and I think I saw big foot. I’ll tell you the story… me and my friends built a fort deep in the woods and anyway we got out of the woods and one of my friends forgot something, so I was riding my bike back through the woods to get it and I was riding for about 5 minutes. Then I was riding down a hill and that’s when bigfoot saw me. I heard bushes crack and then I heard a big splash like he jumped into the swamp. All I saw was the back of its head. His head was bigger than the average head and his head was white.

I also found a couple broken branches that had a radius of 2 and a half inches. There were 4 of them. And I found all this and meadow lake park. It was like 5 minutes of bike riding downhill into the woods but I’ll try to put pictures of the footprints and broken branches I found on my computer and send them to you, and I have one question: how big is the average bigfoot?

I know what I saw was no white tail deer because it was standing about 6 and a half feet tall and had a head that was bigger that mine. If our fort was in BF territory then it seems scary to go back there now. I saw the footprint but I never got a picture of it.

Oakland Co. 2009  –  Bigfoot Sightings on Farm, Objects Thrown at House

Received 22 July 2009 From: E A

Oxford Michigan, at on of my buddy’s house we have seen these creatures several times. Experienced them throwing rocks and sticks at his house. I have also experienced one chasing my truck down a dirt road. We have also seen them emerge from the tree line and then return to the trees like we weren’t even there. His house is a farm house on 80 acres.

Bigfoot sightings in Ingham county

Southeast Michigan
Ingham Co 1978 – Moaning/Howling in Middle of Nite, Bigfoot Chased Thru Orchard Near Dansville

Date Received  13 Apr 2006 From: L B

I remember the event clearly (It was Sept of 1978, or perhaps early Oct.) because  I was 9 months pregnant and not sleeping  well due to the discomfort of carrying a 10 lb son.

I heard a very weird moaning/howling in the woods across the road from us in the middle of the night. During the middle of the night I heard a very strange, moaning howl.  It started out low and wound up to a higher pitch – it was a LONG howl – perhaps lasting over 1 minute.  I have heard owls, coyotes, dogs, etc – this was completely different and sounded like it was coming from a rain barrel. For some odd reason I thought a horse was caught in the fence – altho this howl sounded NOTHING like a horse!  Anyway, I went out the door and headed to the coral – I don’t know how I expected to untangle a thrashing horse from a fence when I was over 9 months pregnant! I actually went into the yard to investigate, thinking one of our horses had gotten caught in a fence.

There was a full moon that night, and halfway to the coral I could see that the horses were fine.  They were standing in the middle of the coral, shoulder to shoulder, with their heads towards the woods across the road, and their ears all pointed in that direction also. They didn’t seem upset, just very vigilant. That’s when I got a little scared!  I didn’t stick around to watch very long! Got scared when I saw the horses were fine, and ran for the house. I hustled right back in the house, scared.  I went back in the house and closed and locked all the doors and windows. It was a warm enough night to have windows open, and in 1978 we almost never locked our doors.  I woke my husband and told him about the howl, but he just turned over and went back to sleep.

Just a few days later, the Ingham County News came out, and the headline was “BIGFOOT SIGHTED IN DANSVILLE”.  The newspaper ran an article about a bigfoot sighting near Dansville, just a few days earlier (the night I heard the moaning). The story I remember in the News said  the creature was sighted in an orchard at M36 and Walker Rd by a deputy sheriff and two other men, who chased it thru an orchard near Walker road, which is 3 miles from my house They mentioned the howling and also the horrible smell associated with the sighting. I did not smell anything.  As I recall, a couple of days later, the creature was again sighted again near Williamston, where it was said to have destroyed  someone’s chicken coop and killed several chickens.  Then – never sighted again that I know of.  I did find another article about continued hunts for bigfoot taking place by local citizens.

Ingham Co Late 1970’s – “Thing” Seen Crossing M36 Near Dansville

Date: 19 Aug 2008     From: Anonymous

It was in the late 70s I think or maybe the early 80s when a couple of locals of Dansville saw the thing crossing M36 not far out of town. The first place they went to tell of this was the Wooden Nickle. Then the following spring we had a Bigfoot race on May 25, and have had one race that is every year after that. I know the dog I had then would not go into one part of the Dansville state game area for a couple of years.

What does Bigfoot want from us Humans

What Do Bigfoots Want from Humans?

Sightings of bigfoots and various other forms of contact with them can be classified into 3 categories:

(1) Accidental Contact, as when a bigfoot is seen crossing a road in front of a moving car, or heard screaming at nite.

(2) Human Planned Contact, resulting from a person actively seeking evidence of or an encounter with a bigfoot.

(3) Bigfoot Initiated Contact, in which the bigfoot actively seeks or initiates some form of contact with humans.

The types of contact initiated by a bigfoot include: looking into the window of a house, throwing things at a house or banging on it, approaching homesites and observing activities of humans outdoors, approaching campers and others out in the woods.

When food is taken, it is obvious what the bigfoot wants.  But why do the other forms of bigfoot initiated contact occur? The more we understand the why, the more likely we are to be able to encourage that type of contact and increase its frequency. To know why bigfoots initiate contact with us, we need to know what it is they want from us.

Here are some of the possible reasons for bigfoots initiating contact with us.  Perhaps others can add to the list.

(1)  Food, and sometimes drink.  Anything edible left outside or growing near someone’s home may be desirable to a bigfoot. In dry weather, any source of water, such as a swimming pool, artificial pond, watering trough, or even a water spigot.

(2)  Security.  Defense of territory or family.  Bigfoots may approach humans in the woods, follow them, vocalize, break branches, throw objects, and while humans are in their tents, enter campsites and even make contact with tents.  Their motivation may be that they want the humans out of their territory.  Perhaps the humans are near a bigfoot food source, or there is a mother and infant nearby.

(3)  Curiosity.  Their desire to watch what humans are doing or hear the sounds they are making (including our entertainment media). If bigfoot hearing is more sensitive than human’s, then they may be able to hear our voices, TV, radio, and music while hiding nearby, even with the house’s
doors and windows closed.  There are many reports of a bigfoot looking into a window. The closer they approach the home (most often at nite), the more likely they are to be seen by humans.  Curiosity may also be the motivation for them to approach campsites, especially when there is no sign of aggression by the bigfoot.  Many reports suggest that bigfoots may be especially curious about human infants and small children.

(4)  Boredom.  Many zoos recognize the need for “enrichment activities” for their animals.  If, at least at certain times of the year, bigfoots have leftover time after satisfying their need for food, they may then seek interesting things to occupy their time, such as watching humans and their activities.

(5)  Loneliness.  The assumed and very likely low population density of bigfoots may result in some individuals having long periods with no contact with their fellow beings.  This may explain those reports of a bigfoot frequently spending time right outside a house at nite, sometimes tapping on siding or windows and making low volume vocalizations.  Loneliness may also be a motivation for the reported cases of long term contact and habituation.  Since humans so often tend to view bigfoots as fearsome monsters, a bigfoot is not likely to find a human friend.  But in some cases loneliness or a need for friendship may be a motivating factor for a bigfoot to approach humans.

(6) Comfortable Life Style.  Bigfoots may realize that humans always seem to have food, shelter, and entertainment.  They may come in close to observe these things with some idea of trying to improve their own life style.

On the one hand, it is obvious that bigfoots in general have an overwhelming desire to not be seen by humans.  But on the other hand, there is reported a very strong pattern of bigfoots approaching humans (both in the forest and around homes), when they could more easily just keep their distance and remain entirely unknown. In these situations, they apparently do want something from us, or something associated with us. Understanding what they want is the key to increasing both the frequency and quality of our contacts with the bigfoot.

Bigfoot ethics ” To kill, or not to kill”

To Kill or Not to Kill?

For several years, among those seeking to prove that bigfoot exists, there has been a great deal of discussion stating why it is desirable or necessary to kill a bigfoot.  The history of interactions between bigfoot and humans contains a great deal of evidence that bigfoot is more than an ordinary animal, and recent DNA evidence strongly suggests that it is genetically much closer to us than any of the great apes, and may be a near human.  The moral issues of killing a bigfoot are very significant, and there are also  legal issues that result from killing an unclassified animal.  It is hoped that the totality of incidents recorded in this book will provide additional evidence of the good will and forbearance that bigfoots so often exhibit during their close encounters with humans whom they could so easily harm or kill.  We should show the same good will toward them, and remove from consideration any idea of killing a bigfoot to prove they exist.


Sightings in Jackson county

It was old probably at least a week. It measured 41/2 by 2 inches. A small BF child stepped in some semi frozen mud by my father-in-law’s [deer] stand. It was faint due to the weather but I noticed the outlines of the three toes and the heel.

Jackson Co 17 Feb 2006  –  Found Two More BF Footprints

They were just two footprints of two different individuals. One the same size as the one down by the one deer stand (4″) [as reported 27 Jan 2006] and another one about a size nine or ten men’s about six feet from it.  They were faint next to the dammed up area next to the cabin almost in front of the “L” cut.  I estimated they walked through there about the time when the temps dropped since the footprints were barely made in the soft soil. I am hazarding a guest that the bigger of the two may be a juvenile, the height of 5’ 8” to 6 foot tall, and the other maybe about three foot tall. It’s unusual that BFs even step in that area near the dam but the wildlife have discovered this new watering hole.

Jackson Co 21 Apr 2006  –  Two faint footprints

Tuesday I went out to spread some corn for the turkeys and on the way back along Green’s property line, I found two faint outlines of BF footprints. The discoloration of something standing while it rained the last time left an outline of both feet about six to seven feet spread. The size was about 16″ (?) a guess. At least I know they are around, probably Junior. They sure love being in and around the dammed up part of the channel near the cabin.

Jackson Co 22 May 2006  –  22-Inch Footprint

I was mowing down back beyond the back channel when I found a left footprint measuring 22 inches. It was there for over a week and the rain washed the two impressions away but left the outline. It was the left foot heading southwest into Green’s fields. At the same time I spotted a flash of movement near one of Green’s brush piles and it was about my height (five ten to five eleven). It scared the crap out of me since I wasn’t prepared to see anything. Then I got a feeling I was being watched from three different places.

Jackson Co 04 Nov 2002  –  Sightings on Farm of Two BFs Near Michigan Center

Frpm:  R A

My sister-in-law Kris has some friends who live in Michigan Center [a town east of Jackson off 1-27 south] who have been terrorized by two large BFs at night for the past week. This is what I know so far: It started last week when the people living in a farm house saw two pair of green glowing eyes just outside their porch light area.  Screams coming from the creatures sound like a banshee and [they] have killed and ripped apart a deer near the house. I don’t know whether they witnessed this or not but they did see the deer carcass in their yard. There have been eight witnesses and one man (owner?) had to flee back inside because of them. The house is about one hundred years old and familiar to the landscape of the area.

The descriptions of the BFs are sketchy. Six feet plus tall and one is taller than the other (whether its a male/female pair or juvenile and adult is in question). They have approached the house under the cover of darkness and may have walked on the porch. (I’m not too clear on that at the moment. These people are terrified.

04 Nov 2002  –  More Information About the Multiple BF Sightings

I talked with Kris, and the new information is as follows: The creatures have been around for a long time (i.e. the woman lived there most of her life). They have a definite pattern. They appear for three nights and don’t on two nights. If this is the pattern, then they are on a two night cycle last night and tonight. Then tomorrow through Friday they should appear. The woman claims when she was a little girl that her father talked about something being there.

They have found a number of footprints measuring maybe eighteen inches long. One BF has pushed on a car at night and the resident took off.

07 Nov  2002 – New Information

Josh, the person who I will be talking to this Saturday, said that the creatures are back last night and the same banshee screams could be heard. Apparently, his mother who lives there, doesn’t think the creatures exists based on my two recent calls to their house. To let you know, the property is about seventy acres, with a barn and an old cabin, so there is a lot of cover where the creatures are coming in and hiding. Their appearances always come at night around midnight.

Why do Sasquatches smell?

The Scent of Sasquatch

With  thousands of bigfoot sighting reports around North America yearly,  we can start to see patterns, and also differences in the types of reports in what people see, hear… and also smell.


So what’s that awful smell all about? And why doesn’t everyone who’s had a sighting report an odor when they have their encounter? Some report a smell, and some don’t. Great apes are known to emit an odor when they’re excited or feel threatened. Do sasquatches fall into that category? Is that all there is to it? There are many and various thoughts on the matter, and each makes sense in its own right. But what’s the real answer?

One zoologist mentioned that people emit odors as well. He  noticed his  body puts out a perfumy smell when he is  around a woman he  likes, and a much more sour smell if he feels threatened. It’s more exaggerated in great apes though.”

“What exactly causes it?”

“It comes out in the sweat and it’s produced by glands in the skin, a lot of what people  smell  [during an  encounter  with  sasquatch]  is actually  due to  feces clinging  to the body hair. That smell can be fairly fresh or old and stale depending on how long it’s been there.”

“But the curious thing is that many report an almost skunk-like odor.That’s sulfurous fumes and they can come from the large intestine,” he said.“The smell resembles a wet animal with a skunky type of odor, but most folks describe it much worse.

Leon Drew, a bigfoot researcher from Colorado believes it may be a regional thing.“I think the odor has to do with humidity and temperature. his  encounter had no odor at 30 feet of distance. I theorize that the Sasquatch odor is tied to sweat and perceived danger. I feel in the dry mountain areas the odor is less than, say, Washington State and the Swamp Ape in the Southeast.

“Have you ever smelled one during your research?”“I think I smelled one earlier this year when we were scouting for camping area. It was a skunk-musk-like smell and it moved as we moved.”

And these theories explain it to some degree, but other interviewees suggested that maybe a sasquatch can create this smell at will. There are many animals that have the ability to do this and why should a sasquatch not also have this skill? Certain snakes like copperheads and pythons do it. Foxes, hyenas, and wolverines also. Some use it as a defense mechanism, like stinkbugs and skunks, while others seem to just emit an odor when they’re agitated or stressed.








Bigfoot encounter in Kent county

I am relaying an encounter in Kent county Michigan. I did speak to the witness and she sounded credible, not someone just looking for attention. The one remarkable thing that she included is that it sounds like she may have been zapped by this creature. When I spoke to her about it she thinks that she was observing a juvenile Bigfoot bit was being zapped by an adult nearby. She then went to say that someone had told her it was fortunate that she did not make any advances towards this juvenile creature because the adult , if it was nearby, might have taken this as a threat to it’s youngster.

Here is her story.



It was a cool sunny Spring/Summer morning, I know it was that time of year because if it was full blown summer i wouldn’t have been sitting outside due to the heat.

I was talking on the phone W/my friend Gail, she was talking so I wasn’t making a sound. There was a slab of concrete down in front of me, where we’d put scraps of food, popcorn, bread, produce, all kinds of left overs for the Wildlife to eat.

We had a lot of different Wildlife that came to R slab to eat, we had ~ Wild Turkeys, Muskrats, Turtles, Ducks, Squirrls, Geese, Raccoons, Opossums, Ground Hogs, all different kinds of wild birds. & now We know we had Sasquatches as well.

Anyway as I was sitting there talking to my friend, I was watching all the critter’s that had come to eat,. out of the cornor of my eye of my eye I saw this flash of beautiful Blonde hair bounding to the slab, @ first I thought it was an Afghan dog, because it’s hair was smooth as silk & 6/7 inches long, it looked like someone had just brushed it’s hair there was a gentle breeze blowing, so it’s hair blew gracefully in the breeze.

Once it got down to the feeding station, it was on all 4’s I could hear this grunting sound like a pig eatting, By now I was talking to Gail & I said Ur not going to believe what I’m seeing, I wasn’t sure what it was but I started explaining this creature to her. He had black or very dark brown face, hands & feet, they looked like wrinkled leather. his nose was turned up a little but yet it was kind of smashed into his face like a monkey. his eyes were black. I say He because I didn’t see any female parts, nor did I see any male parts either, so I just figured it was a male.

As I looked @ it I felt like I was seeing a Disney Character, I felt utopia, mesmerized, almost like I was floating, I felt kind of sick inside because I couldn’t wrap my mind around what I was seeing. {By now I had told Gail that I’d call her back later} I was still in my chair trying to comprehend all that was happening, the next thing I knew this thing stood up on its back legs, it was 3/4 ft tall, @ the time I was 5 ft. so it was almost as tall as I was, or maybe he was, it was hard to judge everything as things were now moving fast & out of sorts, he walked up this small hill we had in R back yard on 2 feet like a Human..

By now I was shaking but I wanted to get a better look @ this thing, so I stood up but stayed by my chair. I felt kind of dizzy & wobbly rellay out of sorts.

When I stood up this creature dropped down on all 4’s & took off like a road runner, he moved faster then any animal I’d ever seen move before. {It never occured to me that where a young 1 is there it’s Mother or a watcher is also, until my Friend Dave Groves was talking to me about it years later & he said its a good thing U didn’t make a move towards him. You see I didn’t even think about it being a Sasquatch until we had moved away.} 7 1/2 years later & I started putting it all together.

I ran towards the house out of fear & I wanted to get my Camera in case this thing came back. I went out there long enough to take Photo’s of the yard, & then I ran as fast as I could to get back into the house. I locked the doors  scared that this thing what ever it was would come after me it could have come from a UFO for all I knew.. I sat & shook & cried until Tim {My Husband} came home about 45mins/1 hr later. I was still shook up when he came in & asked me what had happened.

Seeing this creature changed my life totally, I used to go out & work in the yard from the rising of the sun until it was dark out & Tim would have to come & ask me if I wasn’t going to come in. After this encounter happened I wouldn’t go out in the yard unless Tim came out W/me. He found this to be very odd behavior from what I was like before. He said don’t be silly, I said I’m not being silly, U’d be afraid if U saw this thing just like I did and am, he’d just shake his head, he believe that I saw something, but he didn’t understand the impact that it made on my life.

I tried to explain what it was I saw & he said it was just a Ground Hog,  I said does a Ground Hog walk erect on it hind feet & stand almost as tall as I am, he said Nope. I said I rest my case. I named this thing the Nebster, where I came up W/the name I’ll never know but I had to name it something so Tim would know what I was talking about.

I tried to go back where I saw him run to, it was in a grove of tall trees & low bushes, but there was to much Poison Ivy back there so I stopped going back any further.

We didn’t live in that trailer much longer after that because it had Black Mold in it, the owner before us vented the dryer under the house instead of outside.

If U Google Earth that address, U’ll see where R house used to sit, there’s a new Trailer there now, But You’ll see to the left of that trailer the Grove of trees I’m talking about & to the right there is the pond & a creek that is lined on both sides W/tall trees. as You head South You’ll run into the Hwy & You’ll see that the creek branches off & goes to the East & to the West & there R trees that line the creek both ways. I have Photo’s of the back yard & You can see how very close I was to the Nebster. maybe 10/15 ft. from it.

I wrote a report before this 1 but as I’ve read it, I see where I had left a few things out & had some mispelled words, so I’ve re-written my report. I also have Multiple Sclerosis & sometime I don’t remember to add some vital parts.

We’ve since moved out to Zeeland Mi. we’ve had encounters here as well & now I know what it is that is leaving foot prints in the snow.

Although the sun had melted the tracks somewhat, U can still see the 5 toes.

We also found a strange foot print under R carport  about 1 year ago {2017} & had an expert look @ the print & he say’s it’s a Dogman’s print, much to my dismay. I’d rather face  SASQUATCH then a DOGMAN any day of the week.

I’m willing to talk to anyone that wants to know anything else, U have my Email @ the top of the page, so feel free to contact me.

Thank You~

“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.
