MICHIGAN MONSTERS: The hunt for Bigfoot continues as sightings stay steady

KALAMAZOO, Mich.  – We’re starting a special series of reports that take a look at mysterious creatures that could be lurking around Michigan.

The creature, known as Bigfoot, has made a big impression all over the country and right here in Michigan.

Phil Shaw says he’ll never forget when he came face to face with a Sasquatch.

It happened 10 years ago during a trip through Nova Scotia, Canada.

“There were a bunch of trees, there was an opening. We saw someone walking but there it did not have any clothes. We looked at each other and said “Yeah, we saw Bigfoot’,” Shaw said.

Since then, the man from northern Michigan has been on a mission to find Bigfoot.

“There’s no question in my mind that these animals are not only all over the world, but they’re right in our neighborhood,” Shaw said.

Shaw recently snapped several pictures in the woods near his house in West Branch.

They show footprints, tree breaks, and stick structures that he says were left behind by a Bigfoot.

It’s believed that these creatures build them for shelter.

“It’s quite obvious they didn’t just fall out of the tree, they’re not a hunter’s blind, they’re not a kid’s tipi,” Shaw said.

Looking around the internet, you can find plenty of videos and pictures of this anomaly.

Stories about these ape-like humanoids date back thousands of years.

It’s said that Native Americans were in close contact with them.

The Big Foot Research Organization tracks sightings all over the country.

A map on their website shows Michigan to be a hot spot of activity.

“Recent DNA testing shows them to be almost human. If anything, they might be smarter than us. They have a bigger braincase. The average male is 8-10 feet tall,” Shaw said. “If they are almost human, they could hide, very well. They don’t want to be seen.”

But they are being heard.

Sasquatch hunters have recorded sounds, like howls and knocks, that could be from the creature they’re after.

Shaw says the truth is out there, and with so many cameras nowadays, it’s just a matter of time before a big discovery.

“I think everyone should have an open mind. I don’t think we know it all. I’m 100 percent convinced they’re there, the question is, what are they?” Shaw said.

If you’re going to go out looking for big foot, Shaw recommends looking for footprints and stick structures.

He says hunters should have a camera ready, and be very cautious.

College Instructor presents conclusive scientific proof of Bigfoot at research conference

Mitchel N. Townsend BA, MA, EdD (ABD) of Centralia, Washington presented forensic science proof of what he says is conclusive evidence of a giant unclassified Hominin (Bigfoot) at the 69th Annual Anthropology Research Conference in Tacoma.

Townsend and one of his former students found and analyzed three different prey bone assemblages around Mount St. Helens. He says that the tooth marks imprinted upon the bones were made by an 8’8” tall Hominin that left 16” foot prints and other forensic and behavioral information that Townsend was able to situate in current scientific research.

He goes further and offers his evidence to any scientist who wants to re-examine his conclusions. He states “The evidence is clear, verifiable, and repeatable. We have solved this mystery with years of hard work and the latest forensic science techniques.”

His paper is available online.

We present a Forensic Biotic Taphonomy Dentition Signature field study of prey bone assemblage modifications from three different geographically separated deposition sites located in the immediate vicinity of Mount St. Helen’s, in Washington State. The bones assemblages are characterized as ungulate post mortem remains. Experimental hominin chewing studies have demonstrated close parallels with similar mastication evidence recovered from several Pleistocene and Holocene archeological bone assemblages. Recognition and understanding of Rib/Bone Peeling as a diagnostic signature of hominin mastication behavior aids greatly in the identification and classification of both pre-archeological and contemporary post mortem bone assemblages. We present diagnostic evidence that supports manual and oral peeling of cortical layers of ungulate ribs as taphonomically diagnostic hominin mastication behavior. The repetitive presence of these recognized diagnostic characteristics across multiple sites and evolutionary time frames enables hominin assignment with increasingly higher degrees of reliability.
