A woman who was driving along a quiet road in Virginia claims that she saw a Bigfoot carrying an infant
The witness, who wished to remain anonymous, told a sheriff's office dispatcher that she had been traveling along the road when her headlights illuminated a strange figure in the darkness.

Curious about what she had seen she decided to return to the area the next day to investigate.

"I know this is going to sound crazy, but I went back and checked and there were prints," she said. According to the report the marks were at least twice the size of a normal human footprint.
The woman also claimed that the creature had been cradling what appeared to be an infant in its arms which she inexplicably maintained "looked just like Chewbacca from Star Wars".

No conclusive evidence to back up the bizarre sighting has ever been found however the witness is adamant that she saw what she described and that it was definitely not a bear.

"I've never had a call like this in my life," said the dispatcher.

How do non believers KNOW it wasn't what she saw? Were you there? Sightings have been as far south as Florida so Virginia is not a stretch. Do people know what's in every square mile, or acre for that matter, of our nation's forests? No.

Bedford Co., VA (WSET) - He's a legend. Most say a myth. People hunt for him on reality television. But a woman in Virginia says her story is no joke. She called the sheriff’s office about Bigfoot. Then I'm convinced! That's all it took.

LOL. *anybody* that reports seeing BF seems totally off their rocker. That's why many BF and UFO sighters never tell anyone what they saw. Then how will they get the help they need to fix that rocker? Seems they're being incredibly irresponsible... Just as an aside, and I direct this to ALL in here, not to Cassafrass necessarily...... if you all don't believe in *anything* supernatural, why do you post at U-M? strange. Why do you? To throw around claims and not back them up? You can do that on any other forum as well. I'm because this stuff is greatly interesting. Just because I don't fall for... [More]

How do non believers KNOW it wasn't what she saw? Were you there? Sightings have been as far south as Florida so Virginia is not a stretch. Do people know what's in every square mile, or acre for that matter, of our nation's forests? No. We concede that she saw "something". If she provides proof that it was actually a bigfoot species, then yeah, it's a bigfoot species. Until then, it's just a story. Why would you instantly think it was bigfoot before anything mundane? Why does it always have to be the wild explanation instead of something normal? Why would you take this woman's word without an... [More]

Bedford VA is not exactly dense woods. It does back up to the Peaks of Otter area along the Blue Ridge Parkway. It lies on the boundary between the piedmont and mountains. One of the things defining the plant communities in that area is the deer population. Deer are browsers and the deer population is at a density of 55 deer per square mile, or 55 per 260 hectares. The land at Bedford and to the east is broken woods with open fields and small trees supporting a large deer population. To the west the land rises up to the Blue Ridge mountains. These are wooded.The mountains are only a few miles ... [More]

Just as an aside, and I direct this to ALL in here, not to Cassafrass necessarily...... if you all don't believe in *anything* supernatural, why do you post at U-M? strange. To keep the sanity in check. And, to not let easily influenced people be mis-led. And, to learn things, and teach things. Not to mention, I enjoy the topics. How do non believers KNOW it wasn't what she saw? Were you there? Sightings have been as far south as Florida so Virginia is not a stretch. Do people know what's in every square mile, or acre for that matter, of our nation's forests? No. People see ( report ) all sort... [More]

How do non believers KNOW it wasn't what she saw? Were you there? Sightings have been as far south as Florida so Virginia is not a stretch. Do people know what's in every square mile, or acre for that matter, of our nation's forests? No. There are places where there are intense efforts to document every species. The Smokey Mountains is such a place. One of the areas of Virginia will do the same. The goal is to document all of the bacteria, fungi, trees, flowers, birds, insects, amphibians, etc. The effort at the Smokies turned up some new species in the process. Finding and identifying a new s... [More]

Fun fact Chewbacca was modeled after Bigfoot.

If she said it looked like Chewbacca, mayne it was just a Wookie mom and her son going to fetch some food.
