Two People See ‘Bigfoot’ in Western Ohio

 HOUSTON, Ohio — A man in western Ohio claims he and his mother saw a Bigfoot creature.

44-year-old N.T. told Cryptozoology News that he was on the river fishing with his mother near Houston when they saw the bipedal animal.

“It was late June, 1982, early afternoon. My mother told me to grab my stuff and I argued. I was only 9 years old back then,” the heavy equipment operator remembers.

The man says that as he proceeded to pick up the fishing equipment, her mother asked him to look to his left.

“It was across the river, about 25 yards. I saw it. I made eye contact with it for about 3 seconds and my mom grabbed me. It grunted and hid behind a tree. We walked pretty fast up the hill to the car.”

The Ohio resident described the animal as an 8-foot-tall beast walking on two legs. Its hair, he said, was brown and shaggy.

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”.

In October of 2014, a child said he had seen a “white Bigfoot” running around his property. Four days later, an 8-year-old Canadian boy was able to snap a few pictures of what some researchers called a Sasquatch creature. Eight months earlier, a young boy from Kentucky stated to have seen “Bigfoot” peeking at him through a window outside his house.

In early 2015, a retired police officer from California made similar claims about an encounter he reportedly had with the creature as a child.

The township of Houston is located in Shelby County and has a population of 1,196.

      Hello Tim,

      That’s one of the things we would also like to obtain with every single report, but the eyewitnesses don’t always have a scanner, or know how to send us an image drawn on a piece of paper. While this could be done simply by taking a picture of the sketch with your phone and then submitting it to us, not everybody has the time/patience or technical capability.

      That is why we have now added a digital way to do this through our “report a sighting” form. Please take a look. Any suggestions are always appreciated.

      Best regards,
      Cryptozoology News

    It is actually in Western Ohio, less than 30 miles from the Indiana border.

    I wish people would come forward when the sighting was actually made…it gives much more credibility to a report rather than waiting 30 or 40 years.
