A mysterious sighting in Washington County has area officials and residents bewildered, bemused and amused.
A man contracted by the Department of Natural Resources to pick up road kill came to the Washington County Sheriffs Department to report a 7-foot-tall animal had taken a deer out of the back of his pickup truck at about 1 a.m. Thursday, Sheriff Brian Rahn said.
According to the report, the man loaded a deer carcass into the back of his truck on Highway 167 near Station Way, got into the cab and prepared to drive away when a large black animal, very wide and larger than a bear, jumped into the back of his pickup and dragged out the carcass he had just loaded.
He was horrified and took off out of there, said Rahn.
During his retreat, the man also lost an all-terrain-vehicle ramp that he used to ease carcasses into the truck.
Deputies went to the location near Holy Hill after the man reported the incident at about 4 a.m. Thursday and could find nothing, including the ATV ramp, Rahn said.
I dont believe we have Bigfoot running around Washington County," said Rahn.
However, deputies will do an additional follow up on the report, he said.
It will take more than this report to convince me, Rahn said.
Dick Liethen lives on Troll Hill Road, just through the woods from the reported sighting. He was out hunting this morning, but didnt catch sight of anything unusual.
If Im not hunting, Im out walking the woods and Ive never seen anything, said Liethen. But the gentleman must have seen something. He was pretty shook up.
Liethen has a camera set up in the woods to record passing wildlife, but said he has not recorded any images of an animal matching the description.
The sighting has added to Liethens daily chores, however.
Since this happened I will be taking out the garbage and getting the mail. My wife says, you do it, but the paper might wait until its light out, said Liethen.
Highway Commissioner Ken Pesch was amused by the report.
Thats one way to get rid of them, said Pesch of the pilfered carcass. Reports of dead animals are sent to the Sheriffs Department and the state Department of Natural Resources contracts with the man to have the carcasses removed, Pesch said.
We cant touch those carcasses. You need a license, so if they catch Bigfoot, they might want to check his license, said Pesch.
Anyone seen Janet Reno?
Tell me again why they call it gay, when it looks like this?
There goes the neighborhood.
Not even Bigfoot can escape being ensnared by over regulation and beauracracy.
I love Holy Hill.
Hmm. One wonders how "Troll Hill" got its name.
What are your thoughts about this stuff?
It's manbearpig and its George Bush's fault ....I'm super serial.
"Bigfoot is Alive and Well and Living with Elvis in Wisconsin" Ping!
I don't know.
Will read it; collect my thoughts and let you know.
Am somewhat convined that some ET race(s) leave interesting critters around to . . . keep us guessing, cause trouble, for whatever mysterious reasons . . . Some have been seen leaving interesting critters on the planet . . . other interesting critters have been seen persistently in the company of ET's.
If the enemy wants to create chaos and fear . . . would certainly be a useful way. Chupacabras in Mexico to wit.
Thanks for the ping.
I suppose Janet Reno is not the best explanation . . . her mouth might be as big but not her feet.
Hard to say. Plausible, I suppose. AS are other explanations. But I tend to believe the guy. I doubt he'd throw away something as useful as a ramp without significant cause.
Bigthighs is alive and well and is looking to be President in 2008.
I can see Bigfoot sitting around a campfire in the woods with Elvis, Elvis playing guitar, both of them singing - "The other day, I saw a bear, a great big bear, oh way up there..." then laughing hysterically...
Everyone was talkng about this at work yesterday. We are in the next county over.
You guys up there are filled with critters.
Don't forget the Beast of Bray Road!!
