Recent Bigfoot Silliness

Here are a few Bigfoot related stories from this past weekend:

Bigfoot Is Wandering Michigan Man's Property And Eating Pizza

A 52-year-old Breckendridge, Mich. man came to the Midland law enforcement center armed with evidence, including photo albums, empty food containers, dirt and alleged Bigfoot scat, to ask for help verifying the existence of the mythical creature, according to a report from the Midland County Sheriff's Office.

The man, Anthony Padilla, spoke to a Sheriff's deputy, explaining that he accidentally "awoke" the Bigfoot spirit by knocking branches against trees to break them into smaller pieces. This began when he moved onto his 17-acre property in 1997, according to the incident report, which was sent to The Huffington Post.

Padilla had a serious sighting seven years ago, when he thought he saw a man in a ghillie suit hunting. But when they locked eyes, the "being began to fade and turn into a mist. The mist then reformed into a white tailed deer, and ran away in to the woods," the report states.

Though the existence of the hairy beast known as Bigfoot, Yeti or Sasquatch has never been proven, many have tried. For years, Padilla has seen what he believes is evidence of Bigfoot, including his scat, dead animals, trees broken in specific ways, impressions in the snow and food boxes rolled into shapes or folded into triangles.

In the incident report, Deputy Thomas Anderson said Padilla asked that the food boxes and scat be tested for DNA.

"He was kindly told that DNA processing is only used for serious crimes and that bigfoot is not a suspect in any criminal activity," Anderson wrote. "I explained that scat would not contain DNA, and he was reminded that MSP (Michigan State Police) won't process it."

Padilla said he wanted the Sheriff's Office's to verify his claims to help him win a $10 million cash prize. Competitors on "10 Million Dollar Bigfoot Bounty," a new reality television show, are being offered just that if they find the creature, and Padilla potentially wishes to stake his own claim to that fortune.

Deputy Anderson states, "Anthony believes bigfoot is not ape man or a mammal at all, but a spiritual creature that can shape shift, but when it takes form eats pizza and defecates," Anderson wrote in his report.

In the statement:

I was contacted by a man in Oregon named Craig who had these pictures sent to his phone by his former brother in law who was out hunting with a friend in Grants Pass along the Illinois river a few years back when the discovered these bones near the river. - Possible Bigfoot Bones Found Near Grants Pass Oregon

Also noted:

The hunters said that within a hour or so 2 black suburban pulled up and these men confiscated the bones and told everyone there they never saw this “It didn’t Happen” Just forget about it. They also confiscated their cell phones but didn’t know they had already sent the pictures to Craig and other family members.

Craig tells me that they called the local newspapers and TV stations to see if they would do a story on this discovery of these bones along the Illinois river but they never got back with him.

NOTE: Along with 'Hankenstein', the Sierra 'Bigfoot face print' and the '$10 Million Bigfoot Bounty', the folly and absurdity continues. I watched some of the 'Bigfoot Bounty' presentation and, quite frankly, it's mostly what I expected. Cussing, back-biting and general bad behavior...which, in reality, parallels much of the Bigfoot community. Lon
