Clifford LaBrecque had an 8ft fibreglass reconstruction made of the creature he came across in Iowa.
The 73-year-old recounts sightings of a Bigfoot in 1977 behind his home, including one night on which he claims he witnessed an adult creature with two jeuveniles. "When I was a little kid, I heard stories about the wild man of the west, and I began watching out for one," he said. Following an argument with his local newspaper over image copyrights he decided to obtain incontrovertible proof by shooting and killing one of the creatures but despite repositioning his car to provide a good spot from which to fire he was never able to do so.
What is believed to be the only sculpture in the world created to scale in meticulous detail of an adult specimen of the legendary "Bigfoot" resides in this Ozark town.
