Tales of Bigfoot in Kentucky

This news article surfaced from the Richmond Register in Kentucky. It is a light-hearted overview of the Finding Bigfoot town hall meeting we held a few weeks ago in Renfro Valley, Kentucky. Enjoy!

Typical bigfoot habitat in Kentucky

Tales of Bigfoot in Kentucky

RICHMOND — In the past, if you wanted to see a tall, hairy, smelly, antisocial, two-legged creature you’d have to hang out in the Himalayas. That’s home to the Yeti or Abominable Snowman. They’ve been spotted around there for years. But remember, the air is rather thin in the mountains, which can play tricks on your brain.

Still, there’s reason to believe that some Yeti have left Nepal and made their way to North America, setting up housekeeping in secluded areas near mountains, swamps and forests. They’ve been reported in every state except Hawaii. That’s quite a trek. On foot. Even with size 20 feet.

Kentucky has had its share of sightings. People aren’t shy about admitting that they’ve seen a Sasquatch or Bigfoot in their neighborhoods, woods and rural areas. Even though Sasquatches are pretty good at hiding.

  1. Sounds like a typical skeptic's view of a town meeting about BF. I like how they described him snowshoeing when he walks. I wrote about then after watching Patterson-Gimlin film. That shows that for that amount of body weight, this creature needs wider hips, bent knees, and instead of stepping off the ball of the foot, it would snowshoe it's huge feet to move along and be able to appear to glide to those who view it. It's a necessary evolutionary change for the creature because of height and weight. Just think of morbidly obese people and how they end up having to totter from foot to foot, right to left--they have to adapt for their weight and frame which were meant to hold less. So, BF is well adapted to his gigantic size. I love hearing those kind of mentions because it makes the creature even more real from an evolutionary standpoint.

  2. Nice blog...are you aware of any incidents of Sasquatch aggression? Generally they are thought to be peaceful, but even deer and squirrels can and will attack if threatened, so we should assume this applies to Bigfoot too. Specifically, I remember reading a report about a hunter in West Virginia- he was found dead and the death was attributed to a cougar or bear, but that didn't explain his twisted -up firearm or odd marks on the body...I cant find this article anymore.

  3. Slightly off topic. But just want to say happy birthday Cliff!
