Bigfoot Update

Thanks to Jeff Meyerson for the link.

We've got the yoopers beat on Bigfoot- "Move over Upper Peninsula. We've got your Bigfoot right here.

Although a group led by the Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization (BFRO) started combing the woods around Marquette on Thursday for signs of Sasquatch, they may be looking at the wrong end of Michigan for the fabled hairy hominoid.

It is Washtenaw County, after all, that has had more reported Bigfoot sightings than any other county in Michigan, according to the BFR0's own database at

Washtenaw's tally stands at five to Marquette County's four, but you'd probably have to give the yoopers the edge based on quality. They've had two close-range daylight sightings, one for several minutes with several witnesses, while the Washtenaw County encounters have primarily been at night.

'Although we have a database of thousands of Bigfoot sighting reports, we only publish reports that we have investigated, 'said BFRO curator Kevin Withers by e-mail.

If the BFRO has an investigator in the area they'll interview the witness in person. Otherwise an investigator does extensive phone interviews with the witness. If the report's deemed credible, it goes in the database."

As someone who lives twenty miles from Washtenaw County, I am highly suspicious and would rate the Yoopers as more reliable.

Just be careful and don't let Bigfoot get hold of you.
