The alleged Bigfoot prints appeared to have been left by someone or something that wasn't wearing any shoes.
The footprints, which were discovered by Aaron Thiel along a woodland track near Lexington, Kentucky, formed deep indentations in the mud and clearly showed all five toes.

"The trail was about 2 miles and it was in and out," he wrote on Facebook. "Didn't see any people."

"As I was coming out of the woods on the trail I noticed a weird foot print, that had toes. Took a pic, kept walking and then saw more fully formed humanoid foot prints, my boot is there for comparison."

"Size 12. It was muddy and definitely not a path to walk barefoot on."
"And they were fresh with no water in doesn't make sense to me... I'm 300lbs, size 12 boot, I barely left an imprint in the ground compared to the other print."

After posting photographs of the prints on social media, other users came forward to suggest that he may have found evidence of a juvenile Sasquatch.

Others, meanwhile, accused him of perpetrating a hoax.

You can check out some additional photos here - who or what do you think left the footprints ?

Sigh, My father won awards for his taxidermy work but it wasn't his profession in his hobby he made lots of gaffs, A buddy of my dad's who knew this and happen to be some kind of forest worker asked dad could he make him fake feet to strap to boots to make prints to prank people, so dad made them out of wood and the tracks looked very much albeit bigger than the ones in this thread, they had no flex like a real foot has. Being i took a look at the other pics the fellow presented and while it could have been his own foot if so he planted it straight down like a rubber stamp not heel to toe like... [More]

Do you know how many things in remote Kentucky are not wearing shoes? All of my cousins, just to name a few. It's going to take quite some time to get the exact match.

Any of y'all old enough tor remember those 'shirts and shoes required' signs they used to put on stores? When was that, like the 70s? They only started putting those up in remote Kentucky in 2022 and they were so unpopular they had to take them down, there were no customers left!

Yeah, in the 80s we would hit Daytona and new Smyrna beaches all the little stores near the sand would have such signs but never enforced it that I know of.
