A Native American child claims he surprised a “Bigfoot” Thursday and was able to snap three photographs of the creature.
The 9-year-old boy, Kyle G., says he was walking in the woods of an undisclosed location in North America when he saw a shadow that called his attention.
According to the witness, the creature was initially squatting and possibly hiding after noticing the kid.
“I took the picture right when he was standing up, I took three of them with my iPod,” he said.
Noad estimates that the alleged Bigfoot was standing about ten yards away from Kyle.
“Then he saw me and got up and started walking towards me,” he said.
So the startled boy ran away.
“And when I looked behind me, he was actually gone,” he explains.
Reportedly, the witness came back to check the area later that day and he saw the creature again.
“He came half way across the river, then he went back and he saw me, and he went back straight that way.”
Noad then proceeded to look for tracks or other physical evidence but wasn’t able to find any.
“This young fellow, the bravest little boy to actually walk up to this thing within ten yards and take pictures of it, I just can’t believe how brave that little boy is,” Noad said.
Prior to the arrival of the white man in the New World, the Bigfoot creature was already known among Native Americans.
The legends describe a nocturnal animal about 9 feet tall, with lots of hair and a distinctively unpleasant odor. According to their beliefs, this being would take things like weapons, tools and food from the tribes, and occasionally kidnap women. Depending on the tribe, there are two types of Bigfoot: benevolent and malevolent. The good Sasquatch purportedly communicates with the natives through sign language, while the mean one is supposed to be hostile and has developed a taste for human flesh.
Some researchers believe Bigfoot exhibits a natural curiosity toward domesticated animals, loud noises like cars or chainsaws, and “especially the screaming of children at play”.
“Repeatedly, Sasquatches have been watched in these contexts, occasionally for hours, and even attempted interaction in the play of children. Sometimes, a Sasquatch seen in the open will retreat into cover, but remain to watch his observers from hiding,” the BFRO claims.
In 1981, Cindy Barone, a 13-year-old girl from Michigan, claimed to have found a Bigfoot in her barn, allegedly coming so close to the creature that she was able to touch “its fur”.
