Family Recalls WHITE BIGFOOT Sightings in Martin County, Kentucky

Several members of an extended family in eastern Kentucky recall their sightings and encounters with a white-haired Bigfoot at a rural lake where they would frequent.

I received the following account:

"When I was growing up my family owned a cabin on a lake in rural Appalachia in Martin County, Kentucky. It was pretty remote at the time though it's been more heavily developed over the past 15 years.

Anyways, when we would go to the cabin we would often go for picnics in a huge field at the edge of a farmer's field. One day we set up our picnic spot at the edge of a very steep hill. At the bottom of the hill, the field met the tree line of a very large forest. I was too young to remember everything that happened but this is what I was told by my sister and my parents. We were sitting on the field eating when my dad heard a really loud banging coming from the bottom of the hill where the tree line met the field. He walked to the crest of the hill and saw an enormous white creature standing on two feet, taking large logs and throwing them over its head to bang them off of tree trunks to make a loud noise. He showed my mom, she saw it, and we decided to pack up and leave. They were creeped out.

Now my parents are very sane and rational people so they never really talked about it out of fear of sounding insane. No one really wants to claim they saw a Bigfoot.

Well, about four years ago we were having Christmas with my aunt and her family who would also frequent a cabin on the same lake. We ended up talking about the cabin and were sharing memories when my aunt said she had an absolutely unbelievable story that she had never shared with anyone besides my uncle. She would always make wild blackberry jam in the fall so she would often go picking for blackberries. One day she said she thought she saw a bear in the distance eating blackberries and that it scared the hell out of her but she continued to pick and watched it in the distance for a while. Well, eventually the thing she thought was a bear stood up, revealed its white coat of hair, and walked away on two feet into the woods.

Obviously, we immediately shared our story and everyone was in awe that we had seen the same thing at approximately the same time, in the late 1980s.

I decided to do a little research and it turns out there were a ton of sightings of this thing in the late 80s and someone was actually so convinced that what he saw was Bigfoot that he dedicated the rest of his life to finding it again. You can look it up. There are numerous reports of people seeing this thing around the time my family saw it.

I am not sure I really believe that this guy found the Bigfoot again, but he claims he found three of them together, two big and brown and one with thick white fur - an exact description of what my parents and aunt independently confirmed.

I don't really know what to think. The rational part of me knows it probably wasn't Bigfoot, but I respect everyone in my family's sanity and intellect and everyone was convinced that what they saw was not a bear and was covered in thick white fur and walked on two legs. I don't know how you can explain that away." M
