  • 'That's no deer:' Fouke Monster legend haunts swamplands of Southwest Arkansas with new alleged evidence

    Arkansas may be the Razorback state, but Miller County residents live under the hairy shadow of a different beast. For decades, locals in the small town of Fouke and its surrounding area have said that something inhuman stalks the deep, dark swamps in their region...the Fouke Monster. Reba Killian was a little girl when she says she first saw the creature on a late-night drive. "Seven and a half to eight feet tall. And we just started screaming, we were banging on the truck trying to get our parents to stop because we were kids, nobody was going to believe...

    A Cheyenne couple says they spotted Bigfoot while on a train ride in Colorado over the weekend. The video, of course, has gone viral and the media has gone bonkers over it. A Cheyenne couple might be among those to finally answer the age-old question of whether Bigfoot exits. Shannon Parker told Cowboy State Daily that she, her husband and another passenger aboard a train they were riding in Colorado on Sunday saw what very well could have been a specimen of the legendary creature. “From our perspective, it seemed pretty legit,” she said of the apparently huge, bipedal creature...

    Incredible video that seemingly shows a Sasquatch darting through the woods of Mississippi is going viral, with some saying it’s the best footage of the creature ever captured. The video was recorded by Josh Highcliffe, who posted it to YouTube back in 2015, where it has clocked up more than 811,000 views. In a caption beneath the 2-minute clip, Highcliffe explained that he came across the creature ripping bark off a tree trunk and throwing it to the ground. He added that he was “afraid” of the hairy beast after stumbling across it on a hunting trip.

    The hunt for the elusive creature - said to be 10ft tall, part man, part ape and otherwise known as the Abominable Snowman - has frustrated scientists for decades. Now tests at Oxford Brookes University on hairs said to be from a Yeti in India have failed to link the strands with any known species. Ape expert Ian Redmond, who is leading the research, said: "The hairs are the most positive evidence yet that a Yeti might possibly exist. "It may be that the region this animal is inhabiting is remote enough for it to remain undiscovered so far." The...

    Scientists in the UK who have examined hairs claimed to belong to a yeti in India say that an initial series of tests have proved inconclusive. Ape expert Ian Redmond says the hairs bear a "startling resemblance" to similar hairs collected by Everest conqueror Sir Edmund Hillary. He told the BBC the Indian hairs are "potentially very exciting". After extensive microscope examinations, the hairs will now be sent to separate labs for DNA analysis.

    A prominent Bigfoot hunter who claimed to have filmed the cryptid — and even sued the California Department of Fish and Wildlife to prove its existence — has died. Claudia Ackley, 51, was found dead at her Tennessee home on July 3 following a suspected heart attack, her heartbroken partner Ed Brown confirmed to the US Sun. After allegedly first sighting the mythical, hairy humanoid nearly a decade ago, Ackley devoted her life to showing that the species does exist — and to warn others that the creatures are dangerous. Brown told the Sun that the Bigfoot community had “lost...

The mom of two was found dead at her home in Tenessee, on July 3, her partner Ed Brown confirmed to The US Sun. Back in 2018, The Sun spent time with Claudia in the mountains of Big Bear, California, retracing the...

    A remarkable video out of Utah shows what appears to be a sizeable creature crossing the peak of a snow-covered mountain with ease and some suspect that the peculiar traveler could be Bigfoot. The wild footage was reportedly captured last Wednesday by a witness who was observing the Wasatch Mountain range from the nearby community of Farmington. To his surprise, he noticed and something moving across the mountain's Francis Peak at an elevation of around 9,500 feet, where the terrain was covered with a thick layer of snow, and proceeded to film the strange scene with his cell phone.

    YouTube wildlife documentarian Coyote Peterson has posted photos of what he claims is a “Bigfoot skull” that he found in British Columbia. Peterson broke the news on Facebook, explaining that he found “a large primate skull in British Columbia”, smuggled it through customs and TSA, and has placed the skull “in a secure location awaiting primatologist review.” According to Peterson, he though it was a bear skull when he found it, but is now “100% sure” it is not. He also warns that he is “sure these pics will be taken down… as will probably the video by government...

    A creepy video captured by a man in Canada appears to show a pair of eerie figures stalking a deer in a forest and some suspect that the odd interlopers could have been Bigfoot. The strange scene was filmed earlier this year by Terence Leano as he was doing a live demonstration of his throat singing technique for his TikTok channel. As the start of the video, he acknowledges a deer that has emerged from the nearby woods in what he theorized was the creature "looking for where the sound was coming from" as he was talking to the viewers...

    After skipping 2021 out of COVID caution, the long-running Oklahoma Bigfoot Symposium returned in March to a crowd of believers, some who say they’ve had their own close encounters with the fabled beast. Cherokee Nation citizen, Sissy Turner, said that as a child she saw Bigfoot twice, the first time with her brother in Hulbert, then later in the same rural area next to a lone tree. “We were just goofing off, running up the road and stuff,” she said. “So, we looked over and right next to the tree, it was standing, and it had its arm up on...

    They’re out there. Shadowy creatures of the night making mischief, or worse, under the cover of darkness. These magnified legends have wormed their way into the subconscious, propelling legions of seekers to swarm dense North American forests in search of Bigfoot. Ken Carter of Martinez has never seen one. But he says he has had close encounters — red eyes eerily glowing in the woods that he swears could not have been an animal. He has heard grunting and stomping in his campsite and once found a big handprint where something smacked the camper shell in the wee hours, startling...

    He’s everywhere: in yards, on T-shirts, mugs, stickers and even tail lights. He’s big, hairy and sometimes frightening — and he may not even exist. Though elusive, he, she or it is Bigfoot — and has become somewhat of an unofficial symbol of the Hocking Hills. According to data from Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization (BFRO), there have been at least six recorded Bigfoot reports in Hocking County, the earliest dating back to 1979. There are three classes of Bigfoot reports, according to the BFRO: A, B and C. All six of Hocking County’s reports are Class A and B. Class...

    You’ve probably seen the famous footage of Bigfoot — that grainy film from 1967 showing an apelike creature ambling through the California woods, casting a brief, leisurely glance at the camera before disappearing off screen. What an Illinois man saw last month was rather different. The creature he says he spotted outside the small town of Chandlerville, northwest of Springfield, was fast, athletic and massive, covering a two-lane road in two quick strides. It had incredibly long limbs and was covered in shiny black hair, the man said, and was gone almost before he could register what was happening. “It...

    CHANDLERVILLE — It was an encounter along Illinois 78 near Chandlerville that lasted just seconds. But it left a lasting impression on a driver going from Cass County to Tazewell County that night. "When it hit the shoulder, it looked back at me," he said. "I said to myself out loud, '(expletive)ing Bigfoot!'." Garver was driving the stretch of road about 10:30 p.m. Nov. 29, heading north, about 85 miles north of Alton. "I saw a large animal jump into the road about 40 yards ahead. When it hit the road, I could see very large legs spread wide in...
