Bigfoot Living Among the Ruins of Detroit!

Posted on Feb 15 2014 - 12:08am by Cryptozoology News

DETROIT (Cryptozoology News) — A family claim they saw a strange ape-like creature Thursday afternoon coming out of the window of an abandoned house on the outskirts of the desolate city.

C. Brown, his wife, and their two children said they were “driving around, looking to buy a new house”, when they allegedly witnessed the unidentified beast.

“The economy has been devastating here man,” Brown explained. “One day, you are living in this beautiful city with over a million and a half working people, next day all you know is all is gone…crime has gone up and life has become almost impossible to deal with here. I am one of the lucky ones still with a job.”

Detroit’s economy has seen a decline in the recent decades. What used to be the city of the automobile industry and prosperity has now become a crime-ridden place with the potential to become a war zone. Likewise, the once wealthy house lots are currently nothing but a sanctuary for homeless people struggling to live another day.

“All the houses and people we used to know are long gone. Our neighborhood is not a safe place for our children anymore. So we decided to go look for a new place,” the man said.

His wife shares the same feelings about the city. “Ain’t no place for us to live here. What for? People get shot for nothing in here. So we got in the car and went looking for a good house to move to,” she told Cryptozoology News.

Reportedly, after driving for three hours and not able to find a house meeting the family standards, they decided it was time to return home.

“I saw that thing right through the window of an abandoned house. I was shocked. I told my husband cause he was driving and couldn’t see it.”

They described the house as a two story blue building with broken windows. Then, they said, Brown decided to “slow down to get a better look”.

“Hell, we were curious about it. I mean, you know, we were aware that we ain’t in no safe neighborhood, but we didn’t get out of the car or nothing. We see this hairy arm reaching out the window. I say what the hell, he gonna get cut that dude with the broken glass, man. Then a whole body coming out the window, looked like a monkey, only big damn monkey with a stick on the hand. Maybe about 7-ft tall. It had short, reddish hair. But hold on, the face was human looking, as crazy as it sounds. My wife kept telling me to drive away, so we did. I got to see the animal’s eyes and all, big and dark, with a huge head, like a triangle shape, kinda, know what I mean? Started hitting the ground with the branch or the stick or whatever it was holding. Kind of reminded me of what squirrels do with their legs when you approach them. But this was no damn squirrel,” Brown claimed.

A few moments later, as the Browns left the blue house behind, the animal supposedly walked through the bushes and disappeared.

“I could see it on the mirror, he kept hitting the ground with the stick and then he walked away and couldn’t see him anymore. The kids were screaming in the backseat like crazy and my wife was trying to calm them down, man. It went on for 30 seconds or so,” the father said.

“The lack of urban expansion in the city due to a poor economy could mean that some species have found their way back into their old habitat. It is also possible that the lots of empty houses could work as an incentive for wild animals seeking shelter. As a result, these witnesses could easily misidentify the native species of the area,” said Lorenzo Martinez, animal behaviorist and teacher at a Spanish university.

“No no, that was not a dog or a bear. That was either some sick man dressed up for fun or a freaking monkey with a man’s face, like a Bigfoot. Whatever you wanna believe, up to you. That’s all I have to say,”  said Brown.

Last December, a man from Maine claimed he saw a “white Bigfoot” while walking his dog near his residence.

    So sad about Detroit- motor city was left to rot after building a country. & Chicago. Our country is left to rot, our president is taking US all down. He is insane. and letting him do what he does, is even more insane. USA goes down in hour it is said, I can see why. Our time has come!

    This is just silly. I am what humans refer to as “Bigfoot” and even I have better grammar than the humans quoted in this article. This is only one of the reasons that I hide myself from the world. face palm!

      I see these large smelly apes around Atlanta all the time. No big deal, just don’t let them “borrow” a dollar!

    Interesting story. I feel for the family and the ridicule they are enduring for simply telling of their incredible encounter. As mind-boggling as it seems, the circumstantial evidence that there is in fact a large human-like hominid living in North America is compelling. The data also suggests that these beings are not necessarily living only in the Pacific Northwest or other remote wilderness settings. So it is plausible that one is living or dispersing through the area. I am a wildlife biologist and veterinarian, and I will be speaking on the subject of Bigfoot and cryptozoology on a Sasquatch-centered internet radio program, broadcast from Massachusetts, March 4th at 8:50 PM Eastern Time.

    Humans not on top of the food chain? If Bigfoot ever showed himself, we would immediately kill him and eat him.

    Bigfoot possibly having migrated into the “ruins” (absurdly inaccurate) of Detroit? Detroit is still more densely populated than most rural areas, and is literally surrounded on all sides by one hundred miles of densely populated suburbs. There is absolutely no possible way that a giant, apelike creature could have migrated into Detroit.

    Some facts on Bigfoot you might not know: (1) They have a scientific name for it now, (2) science groups currently have the creatures DNA (3) its DNA is almost COMPLETELY identical to ours, (4) they are more likely to appear to women and children (less danger of being shot at; they learn). Some supposed facts that I am still trying to come to grips with: (1) Reports of them speaking Spanish (probably an extremely hairy Spanish guy; not uncommon), (2) they dress up as people they kidnapped and stole clothes from to receive access to populated areas (and the Best Master of Disguise reward goes to….).

    I was in Detroit a few months back and I saw THOUSANDS of the running around the garbage strewn city. They seemed to like hanging out on the front porch and drinking malt liquor.

      I was being serious. No offense, but you might need to go back to grammar class. “Of the running” does not make any sense. You mean “of them running”, of course.
