Massive 9 Ft. Shaggy Bigfoot 'Up Close' on Vermont Road

“I've lived in Vermont since I was 17 yrs old. I'd never heard of Bigfoot nor seen anything like it in my life. I've seen black bears stand on their hind feet, take a few steps, but always returning to their 4 legged walk. I married my husband in 1967 and had 3 children from 1970 to 1972. There are only two lane roads in the state except for the interstate I-89 which goes from I-91 in Massachusetts into I-89 and winds its way clear to Canada. We lived in Windsor, Vermont centered next to the Connecticut River nestled against Mt. Ascutney. It's a truly beautiful place to live. The people are friendly even with their New England quirks. It's a place you'd bring up your children, let them walk to and from school, never had to lock your cars or house's, for everyone knew everybody for generations...but one year changed my life forever.

You see my husband was a hunter. We drove to Richford, Vermont to his cousin's house and he and his cousin would hunt buck or doe for the two weeks we stayed there. He knew every track an animal would leave and enjoyed the sport. So on that fateful afternoon coming back from Reading, Vermont it was a typical day maybe 80° nice breeze. We were talking when I approached a long swinging corner. I had slowed a bit but when I'd reached the straight there was an animal in the center of the road. I came to a stop just yards from it. We both thought it was a bear as it was hunched over with it's back to us. I honked the horn a couple of times but to no avail, the creature continued doing it's thing... until it started standing up and up and up... “It had to have been 9 foot tall, maybe 800lbs,” my husband said; reddish brown shaggy fur. Then it turned around. Neither of us could speak as it eyed us. It was very apparent that whatever it was, was intelligent. It was a male but the largest animal I'd ever seen close up and my husband was as shocked as I was at the sight of the thing (not being disrespectful). It eyed us for maybe a minute or two looking directly into each of our eyes then turned, took a step towards the side of the road, and one step it was on the grass another step it was going into what the hunters called pucker brush because it had thorns two inches long or better and it made you pucker for the pain it inflicted. Then the animal was just gone.

We sat there, I don't even know how long afterwards but a car came up behind us and I had to start moving. We didn't speak of it until the next day we were trying to wrap our minds around what we had witnessed. Years later I came across a book by Ivan Sanderson about a large humanoid animal named Sasquatch or Yeti or Bigfoot and that's when I realized what we had seen. I rushed home to show my husband what I had found and from then on we watched the sides of the roads and looked in fields but never saw the creature or others again. I'm truly thankful for what we saw that day as it made me realize that there is more to this world than we could ever imagine. We never told anyone about our encounter till years later feeling like no one would believe us anyway.” SF

Facebook event announcement: Amy Bue - Bigfoot Researcher / Investigator - Arcane Radio

This week I welcome Bigfoot researcher and investigator Amy Bue to Arcane Radio. Amy is the co-founder of Project Zoobook and a member of the Olympic Project Research Team. She's a reading teacher, writer, and editor from Ohio and became interested in the search for Bigfoot after a possible sighting in Ohio’s Mahoning County in 2012. While her main research area is in Pennsylvania’s Allegheny National Forest and Ohio’s Columbiana County, Amy has traveled to New York, Kentucky, Oregon, Washington, West Virginia, and all over Ohio following up leads. Recently, much of Amy’s efforts have been put into her Project Zoobook, a group she co-founded comprised of primatologists, zoologists, anthropologists, and other scientists working alongside Bigfoot researchers from across the country. She was given the International Bigfoot Conference’s 2018 Dedicated Researcher Award for her work with this group. Amy is an active speaker, and has spoken for events and organizations. As a writer, Amy’s articles on the topic have been published in California’s Bigfoot Times and in newsletters as far away as Norway and Australia. She is currently writing a book about Ohio’s Tom Page, one of Roger Patterson’s financial backers and a partner in his adventures. She also writes a Facebook blog under her ABLE: Amy’s Bucket List Expeditions page. In between giving time to those efforts, Amy recently completed her certification classes through the Ohio State University to become an Ohio Certified Volunteer Naturalist. She has recently started studying with the Midwest Native Skills Institute, and she plans on using her new survival skills in her continued search for proof of Bigfoot’s existence. This will be an entertaining show!
