Ohio Man Encounters and Photographs Multiple ‘Bigfoot Creatures’

HOWLAND, Ohio — A man in Trumbull County says he was able to take two pictures of a group of “Bigfoots”.

The man releasing the pictures, a 45-year-old union plumber who provided his full name but requested to remain anonymous, told Cryptozoology News that the event took place last March during a hike in the snowy woods with his dog.

“It was around noon, me and my dog had been in the woods for about half hour,” he said. “Then, the dog started to raise her head straight up in the air and she was taking deep breaths.”

Reportedly, as the dog picked up the scent, her owner was guided to the sighting spot.

“She was scared. Marching forward through the snow, I see movement ahead on the other side of the creek around and near a fallen tree.”

That’s when the eyewitness claims he noticed the four creatures next to a fallen tree by a creek.

“There was one sitting, looking at me. There was a big one leaning out of what I believe is a shelter they made out of the root of the tree. I also saw what looked like two more crouching on the back side of the root,” he explained. “They were dark brown, almost black color. I’m 6’4″ and I knew they were a lot bigger than me.”

He says that, after comforting his dog and trying not to keep eye contact with the animals, he managed to capture a pair of photographs.

“I paused a few seconds, then I raised up with my left hand and when I heard my phone click, I held it for a second I then got up without looking over at them.”

The photographs, taken with an iPhone5 “no more than 10 seconds apart”,  show a dark gorilla-like silhouette seemingly sitting on a tree root in the center of the snowy landscape. No other shapes were immediately noticeable in the picture.

“Look to the far right of the first picture to the right side of the black tree. Note his legs are weird but there is a tree laying down just in front of him that has snow on it.”

The man said he was watching the creatures for about one minute before storming out of the woods as he felt the fear taking over.

“I didn’t even follow the tracks I made getting to the area. I totally made a b-line to get out,” he says.

12 days later, he claims, he went back to the area in order to investigate, and was able to gather additional photographs of the same spot. Not surprisingly, he says, the root trees were now empty.

“After the snow melt nothing in the pics, but note where the one was sitting, there is nothing there.”

The plumber says this is the exact spot where the creatures were hanging out just 12 days earlier

“I have probably shown close to 30 people my pictures and I’d say over 20 believe me, others have said that it’s raccoons, a bear den, and someone’s pet monkey got loose. A few don’t see anything.”

But the plumber, who says this was “the most frightening day” of his life, says that he is sure that what he saw that afternoon were clearly Bigfoot creatures.

“They didn’t harm me or chase me but you never know. I’m not gonna argue, I just know people need to know these things are out there. It’s been almost three months and there hasn’t been one day go by that I don’t zoom in or look at these pictures,” he said.

And apparently, the Howland man is not the only one to have seen the purported creatures in the Buckeye State. In late May, two hikers claimed to have seen a similar animal on a field in Canfield, just 15 miles south of the plumber’s reported sighting location.

“They are here in this area and they are real. I know 100%,” said the man.

    This sounds very similar to what happened to my wife and I about five years ago at Shenago in Pennsylvania. We had a Bigfoot encounter that changed the way we look at the woods. I live about ten miles from Howland, Ohio so this story and the Candield, Ohio story have me pumped. I now interview people in Mercer and Trumbull county who’ve has Bigfoot encounteres. I’d love to interview this guy and follow up with a story for your news feed.

    Who knows…..most of us want to believe it but, with all the deer hunters out there, why hasnt someone bagged one yet? Plus, nobody has found one dead or the skeletal remains. And also, why is it that every picture or video of this thing is completely blurred, unfocused or whatever. I think most of them videos, you can see the Walmart tag on the back of the costume……like I said,….who knows?

    The photo with the supposed bigfoot creatures is fuzzy, and the photo taken 12 days later at the same spot is crystal clear.

    I have used an iPhone 5. It easily takes great photos on par with the photo of the scene 12 days later.

    Sorry, but this smells questionable. I’m leaning toward hoax.
