  • Giant decomposed foot discovered in woodland in Massachusetts, U.S.
  • Baffled local police sent the remains to a medical examiner for testing
It sounds like the plot of a childhood adventure movie.

Two young boys stumble across a giant, decomposing foot in the woods, leaving local police to wonder whether the grisly find is evidence of the fabled Bigfoot.

But that's exactly what has happened in Massachusetts, U.S., where tests are being carried out on the mysterious remains amid speculation over exactly what kind of creature it belonged to.

HA! That's awesome!!

I literally just posted in the "Promising Bigfoot Evidence" thread about how there never seems to be any real physical evidence of Bigfoot, then I see this thread... lol

I'm almost afraid to get my hopes up..

Bear?

And that said, the fact that there might be bears in the woods in Quincy (which is more urban than Plymouth) disturbs me a bit.

Ok, the foot was sent to Quincy for analysis...but it was found in Lakeville (a far more rural town).

BTW, I live in this general area.

I wish they'd put a tape measure next to it.

I don't live in the US but would say unless part of the foot is missing the shape would be more like a bear, but it's still great that they are at least studying the part to work out the source.

Uhm? Yeah, that's my Bigfoot....foot. I dropped it out of my backpack while coming out of the woods. Lilly, be a sweetheart and give them a call and ask them to send it back to me. Please?


I'm like the rest, I'm too afraid to be exited about the find because it's probably a hoax.

It's actually a little sad when people are too afraid to be excited because of the probability of this being a hoax. Really shows a lot about how often hoaxes are for Bigfoot and cryptids are.

As for me, I'm just going with hoax or known animal. It just happens all the time with these kinds of things.

If it's Bigfoot, shouldn't the porcupines have eaten it by now?

I'm betting bear.

I read in another article about this incident that bear paws are often mistaken for human (bigfoot) because they are so similar.

It takes time to eat an entire Bigfoot.
