BIGFOOT SIGHTINGS: Taboo Subject in Michigan Town

The subject of Bigfoot, according to an Allegan, Michigan resident, was a taboo subject for a long time. His mother opened up about a sighting and was investigated for mental illness.

The following account was forwarded to me:

"The city I grew up in (Allegan, Michigan) has had sightings of an almost white Bigfoot-like creature. These have gone back generations and between families that didn't know each other and even those just moving to the area. Some new farmers on day one would see it before any real interactions with those who have been there for decades.

My group of friends had three parents of different kids, all with their own sightings and would never talk about openly. Fast forward years and during a game of hide and seek in an orchard, we all felt the ground gently shake as a massive white biped ran through mere feet from a few of us. We ran like hell to the house and started telling my buddies' parents. They shrugged it off, saying we were making it up to prank them to the point his mother yelled at us to stop.

Years later, when more news popped up about cryptids in general, we started hearing our parents' stories and the ones their parents had. Then, like a flood, our town was filled with people talking about it, and it was OK to in public.

A lot of people won't because of the backlash they can get, and I know one family that temporarily lost their kids. The mom had been talking about it at work with a close friend a few towns away, and someone heard her. They called the state and ran a full report that she was mentally unstable and should be investigated. Just like that, the town closed its lips and it was hushed.

I just heard about a month ago from my uncle a farmer lost 2 of his calves. They were found over half a mile away, mostly eaten, with both in a tree five feet off the ground. Now the towns talking again.

Almost feels like a repeat thing every 20 years roughly. And soon it'll hush down again. The photo that used to be in the party store outside of town where the hunters would hang their harvest pics of deer disappeared one day before I got there to see it. The owner said it was a clear-as-day photo of an almost sandy blonde ape on two legs taller than the 6-foot fence post it was behind.

We have never talked much outside of my hometown about it. For the most part, we didn't want a flood of hunters and investigators coming in and clogging the town. This year should be interesting up there, and I am saddened I won't be able to make it for hunting as seeing the 'Old Man of the Woods' as my grandpa called him would be great right about now. After moving I always waited to hear that it's alright or the family of them are still around." S
