'Bigfoot' prints photographed in Texas parks

Authorities at the Round Rock Parks and Recreation Department have published some intriguing pictures.
The likelihood that a large, bipedal ape-like creature really is roaming the forests of North America might seem slim at best, but that hasn't stopped thousands of sightings, videos and photographs from being posted online each year by those who believe that they have seen something.

This latest example comes courtesy of the Round Rock Parks and Recreation Department Facebook page where several images of alleged Bigfoot prints have recently been posted.

"Our Park Ranger surveillance has captured strange footprints at various parks & trails in the area," the caption reads. "If you find these, or other unexplained phenomena, tag Round Rock Parks and Recreation Department on FB, or @roundrockpard on Twitter & Instagram. #RRSightings."

The footprints certainly look both large and unusual, but sadly with no evidence beyond these photographs, all we can do is speculate over what type of animal might have created them.

Curious. If they picked out the needles and such, you'd expect to see marks in the print at least. Either the BF just happened to step into a bare patch of mud, or.......

Maybe some helpful citizen will set up a trap camera and catch these rangers running around in the woods. OR... Maybe get a pic of BF!!

Yeah, this has just been verified as a hoax by the City to encourage kids to use the facilities. The government lied, who would have thought?

No, your wife heard a Big Howler, completely different from a Big Foot.

I googled it.Yes the City of Round Rock does reallyhave a parks and recreation department.They also on their website mentioned something about Bigfoot. Now for those who don't know there is a town south of San Antonio actually called Bigfoot. But it's not refering to the one we all know and love, but rather to man who was aTexas Ranger

By the way, you might want to look up Palmetto State Park in the town of Ottine , Texas on the San Marcos River. There are hot springs in the area and there are several rehabilitation centers there. The closest town is Gonzales, where the first shot in the Texas Revolution was fired. Supposedly way back when people have on occassion reported a hairy man like creature in the park.

You would think tracking anything as big and smelly as Bigfoot with bloodhounds would be a piece of cake.

Revisiting this, it seems it was just an attempt by them at viral advertising for their family friendly event: 'Expedition: Finding Bigfoot'. So just a fun way to generate a bit more interest and attendance, it seems they host a lot of family events.
