Two Hikers Spot ‘Bigfoot’ on Ohio Field

CANFIELD, Ohio —  Two people on Saturday evening claimed they saw a Bigfoot on a field in Mahoning county.

Bigfoot was spotted on Ohio field

Tyler Smith says he and his daughter were riding their bicycles on a bike trail when they witnessed the alleged creature running across the field.

“I saw something going into the woods,” says Smith. “Then it went into a little path.”

The man also provided a YouTube video of the location seconds later after their reported encounter. The 40-second video shows a long field designated to farming which connects to a patch of woods.

“It was dark, furry and he was walking on two legs,” he explained.

According to the hiker, the sighting lasted about 1 second and a half.

“I swear I saw something. I’m serious, I saw that thing.”

Smith says he is working on getting more visual data from the area and that he will be providing with updates soon.

The Buckeye State is not new to claimed Bigfoot sightings. In 1869, the Minnesota Weekly Record reported that a “hairy wild man” had attacked a father and his daughter while traveling in a carriage on a road through the woods.

In 1980, off-duty police officer Ray Quay said he was dumbfounded” after witnessing a “seven- feet-tall, hairy animal” in his barn yard in Bellefountaine.

In 2012, a video of an alleged Grassman went viral when a YouTube user by the name of HowTo101Channel uploaded the footage for the world to watch. Later, the video was not longer available on YouTube due to a copyright claim by Ryan Ledoux.

In 2013, TV show Mountain Monsters released footage of a creature they believed to be the cryptid on top of an Ohio hill.

Earlier this year, a nurse shared the photograph of what she initially thought was a Bigfoot creature. It was later disclosed that the picture contained the purported shape of the unproven animal cut out of metallic material.

Canfield, located between US Route 224 and State Route 46, has a population of 8,000 and is known for hosting Ohio’s largest fair in late August.

    I live about 35 miles SE of Canfield Ohio, and hear them in my area of north Beaver County, PA, mostly over the winter. No sighting yet, but clear vocals.

    I’m Tyler smith the one who saw the Bigfoot I have videos and photo evidence that will shock you! That picture above is not mine. I need to show these people my real evidence so I can prove what my eyes and my camera captured that day and the day after that when I went looking for the Bigfoot. Once again that’s not my picture above.

      Tyler, you do not have conclusive video or photos, or you would be instantly famous world-wide. Instantly. the only people that know you, I’m afraid, are the sad dreamers that wish Bigfoot is real.

    Sir. Mill Creek Metroparks is having a Bigfoot events this weekend. Friday Saturday and Sunday.
    That appears to be the property that you had your encounter.
    On Sunday from 3 to 4:30 p.m. there is a Bigfoot seminar at the Kenneth F McMahon Hall. That is the rental building on the very Farmland that you saw the creature.
    Would be pretty cool if you actually made it to the event! You would definitely be the talk of the show !
