Move over, aliens!

There has been so much talk about aliens lately. From people planning on storming Area 51 to sightings across the Northland and beyond, Bigfoot seems to fall into the shadows.

Ken and I were talking about Bigfoot on The Breakfast Club this week. It got me thinking: has anyone ever spotted the creature here in St. Louis County?

To answer that question, I did some digging. I came across a website called The Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization. This site tracks all reported Bigfoot sightings. Who knew?!

There have been several Bigfoot sightings in St. Louis County - 19 to be exact!

The last one was on April 26th of 2018. Bigfoot was spotted 2 and a half miles south of MN Highway 73 and Highway 53 North near Cook, Minnesota.

According to the report, the witness saw a "large brown animal sitting on the north side of the road in the grassy area of the ditch." After a few seconds, the animal stood up and took a few steps to cross the road. The grass where the creature had been was patted down.

The report also says the creature was about 7 to 8 feet tall. It all went down around 2:15 in the afternoon.

Wow!! I will definitely be keeping my eye on the website from now on. You never know!
