So with all the news this week of alleged Bigfoot DNA being sequenced, how could I not just keep doing Bigfoot stories? And if you believe what you read in this story, the big hairy fella has a taste for apples.
A Vermont man insists he spotted Bigfoot in his backyard – and he says he’s got video to prove it.
Frank Siecienski of Hubbarton first thought that it was only a deer ravaging the apple orchard that stands on his property last year.
“I pointed it out to my wife and she says ‘oh God,’ the deer must have been hungry,” he told WCAX-TV this April. “And I said no, a deer couldn’t have eaten that many apples in one night.”
So the self-described Sasquatch researcher set up a camera to keep watch of what was going on outside.
The footage, he claims, shows Bigfoot and its young scaring away a coyote.
“They’re very mysterious animals and they’re a night creature and they are very intelligent,” Siecienski told ABC 22. “I just hope he comes back.”
The Vermont Department of Fish and Wildlife, however, says the man’s claims are a hoot and the creature spotted is probably just an owl.
Paul Bartholomew, a Bigfoot researcher, says Sasquatch sightings in New England are nothing new.
“It’s a global phenomena and it’s here in our own backyards,” the Whitehall, N.Y., resident told WCAX.
Bartholomew said the descriptions of Bigfoot are often the same.
“Red glowing eyes, about 7 feet tall, making a sound like a pig squealing or a woman screaming and walking like a man but looking more like a gorilla,” he explained.
The majority of Bigfoot sightings are reported in the Pacific Northwest.
The creatures are believed to stand as much as 10 feet tall and weigh up to 500 pounds.
I can think of many explanations for what is actually captured in this photo, but I don’t see Bigfoot OR an owl. And a series of still photos, while technically is what a video is, doesn’t make this a video. This is a series of photos from a trail cam. I’m not quite sure where that explanation came from, but there it is. It looks like a poorly made Sasquatch costume, or at least a Bigfoot with the mange. Maybe he should eat more meat?
