If Bigfoot was going to expose himself his true existence to the world, I feel like 2020 would be the year for it to happen.

To prepare ourselves for the possibility of a sasquatch appearance, let's revisit one of the most recent bigfoot sightings in Minnesota that just so happened to be in good ole Stearns County.

One of the most recent sightings posted to Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization (BFRO) was from December 2017. Report # 58895 is considered a Class A sighting of the creature containing a sighting, footprints, and vocal noises.

OBSERVED: I first saw Bigfoot a month ago or so. He was crossing the road in front of me while I was driving home from my father-in-laws house. Tonight I heard a yelling/screaming when I was outside having a smoke. It did not sound like any animal I've ever heard. I am a die hard outdoorsman and I can tell animals apart by their tracks and calls.

TIME AND CONDITIONS: It was around 9:30 pm when Bigfoot crosses the road. My headlights illuminated it enough to tell what it was.
ENVIRONMENT: He was crossing the road from east to west. It looked like he was coming from the river and headed in to the woods

During BFRO's follow up investigation (which they do for all reports to check the legitimacy) they found out that this incident happened about 21 miles from Rice on County Road 1 around 9:30 pm.

The witness was noted as "truthful, excited, and believable" while he was being interviewed. Some defining characteristics of what he saw include:

  • Long black matted hair
  • He could clearly see the calves and large feet
  • Large, human-like torso approximately 7 1/2 to 8 feet tall
  • Long arms that almost touched its knees
  • He estimated the figure to be about 3 feet wide, 500 pounds.
  • The figure only needed 4 steps to cross the two-lane highway.

The witness has also heard numerous howls, growls, knocks, and even chatter at his home near rice where he lives near a thick forest.

Keep your eyes and ears open while in the Rice area. You never know what surprises 2020 has in store for us.
