Is this Bigfoot’s footprint? Men discover evidence of mysterious six-foot-tall creature in Mississippi woods

Is this Bigfoot's footprint? Men discover evidence of mysterious six-foot-tall creature in Mississippi woods  98

The Daily Mail

A large footprint unlike one from a human or bear has been found in the woods in Mississippi – raising suggestions that the creature it belongs to is Bigfoot.

The large print was found by Peyton Lassiter in Vicksburg on August 12 – nine months after another local man, David Childers, saw a large grey figure running through a wooded area nearby.

Lassiter had been working on an air conditioner 400 yards from an abandoned playground that borders the woods when he came across the footprint and made a cast of it.

The cast – which trapped white-gray hairs from the animal – measures nine inches long and is almost six inches wide at the toes, The Jackson Clarion-Ledger reported.

Discovery: Peyton Lassiter shows the cast he made from a large footprint he found near to a wooded area in Vicksburg, Mississippi. He said the ridges on the footprint mean it was not made by a bear

Found: Lassiter, right, contacted paranormal investigator David Childers, left, after making the discovery last month and learned that Childers had seen a mysterious gray figure in the woods last year

‘That right there isn’t human,’ Lassiter told WLBT, pointing to the print.

Not only does the color of the hair fail to match a bear’s, but he also noted there were fingerprint-like ridges in the cast – a feature found only on humans and primates, he said.

‘I have no knowledge of what made it, and I didn’t see what made it, but it’s very intriguing,’ he said.

He contacted Childers, co-founder of the Delta Paranormal Project, when he saw his truck marked with the project’s logo. On speaking to him, he learned Childers could have seen the creature responsible for the print.

‘We were just blown away,’ Lassiter told the Clarion-Ledge. ‘That kind of brought some clarity to what we were dealing with. In other words, it raised additional questions.’

Sighting: Childers said last November he saw the six-foot-tall creature see him and then dash into the woods

Scene: The sightings occurred near this run-down playground, an area where hunting is not allowed

Childers explained that he had seen the creature as he tried to film some paranormal activity at the playground, claiming he had previously heard children’s voices there.

Instead, he said he heard a crashing noise in the woods – and was stunned by what he saw: a 6ft-tall creature running through the woods.

‘It was definitely a shaggy coat to it, like a grayish-brown color,’ he said. ‘When it made the noise that spooked me, I looked over, and it looked like it stood up and just bolted off.’

He said that it happened so quickly that he did not have the chance to take pictures.

While he has long hunted for paranormal activity – even appearing on network A&E with his finds – he would not say whether he believed it could be Bigfoot.

Search: Childers’ group, The Delta Paranormal Project, is now investigating the area further

But ‘if you have a piece of physical evidence such as this it’s definitely worth not totally ruling out’, Lassiter told WJTV.

Both men agree that whatever it is, it must be smart enough to have avoided being seen.

Lassiter said he has found previously recorded sights in the area, reaching from 1721, when a priest wrote about seeing a huge human-like creature in Natchez.

The Delta Paranormal Research group is now planning to investigate the area further.

Four friends were scared by a Bigfoot-like creature

A strange creature resembling a Bigfoot scared the inhabitants of the Canadian province of British Columbia. This is reported by the Canadian newspaper The Star.

On the evening of December 25, 2020, four friends driving along the highway near the city of Silverton noticed a huge figure on the side of the road. According to them, she resembled a very large man or a grizzly bear standing on its hind legs. The creature quickly dropped to four legs and disappeared into the thickets. Friends stopped the car, photographed his footprints and sent the pictures to cryptozoologists looking for Bigfoot.

We found a wide variety of tracks, and some looked especially disturbing. These were the footprints of a two-legged creature leading into the forest in a straight line. I was a little scared when I saw their size. And they were definitely not bear paws, Erica Spink-D’Souza, an eyewitness said.

According to the head of Bigfoot Field Research Group and the host of the program “Finding Bigfoot” on Animal Planet, Matt Moneymaker, forgery or pranking is out of the question. 

“The untouched snow surrounding the footprints proves that the footprints are not fabricated by humans,” he explains. – The length of the stride exceeds the capabilities of a person trying to move through snowdrifts up to the knee. The traces of the dragging and the depth show that the jumping hare could not have left them. The linear nature of the tracks indicates that it was not a bear.”

Ten days after the observation, a group of cryptozoologists from Okanagan visited the scene. They examined the tracks and concluded that a moose could have left them. 

“Eyewitnesses could see a large elk looking ahead and mistake her for a humanoid figure,” says Moneymaker. 

At the same time, he notes that moose tracks are not enough for the final conclusion.

In 2018, it was reported that a resident of the American state of Montana went into the forest and almost died from a bullet from a Bigfoot hunter.

 “If I see something that looks like Bigfoot, then I just shoot him,” he explained.

Scientist finds polar bear DNA in Bigfoot

Scientist finds polar bear DNA in Bigfoot 118

British scientists examined yeti DNA and found a strong similarity to polar bear DNA. For analysis, they took the wool of a creature that was killed by a hunter in the Himalayas 30 years ago.

Brian Sykes, a geneticist at the University of Oxford, examined the DNA of the Bigfoot Yeti and found similarities to the DNA of a polar bear, according to Daily Star.

For analysis, Sykes took the wool of a creature killed by a hunter in the Himalayas 30 years ago, from which they made a stuffed animal. The result showed a match with the DNA of an ancient polar bear that became extinct at least 40,000 years ago. The geneticist suggests that the Yeti is a hybrid of a brown bear and a polar bear that arrived in the mountain range from the Arctic north many years ago. For this reason, it behaves differently from an animal of this species.

Now the professor wants to obtain samples of Bigfoot hair from all over the world in order to subject them to the most difficult DNA tests and continue research in this direction.

In 2019, the FBI released documents revealing the results of analysis of hair and biologic tissue allegedly belonging to Bigfoot. The samples were sent in 1976 by yeti hunter Peter Byrne. Research results showed that they belonged to a deer.

Bigfoot is a large humanoid creature from modern folklore, which is believed to live in forest or mountain areas that are inaccessible to humans. It is believed that it is an ancient hominid that has survived to our time, but scientists are skeptical about the likelihood of its existence. In particular, all cases of its observation or possible traces are explained by hoax or mistaken recognition of animal tracks.

When was the last time a Bigfoot was seen?

In 2020, the appearance of Bigfoot was noted in Australia, the relic forests of Canada, in the west of the USA, in the north of Scandinavia.

In the spurs of the Himalayas, wild hairy people of small stature were seen, resembling a Flores man (fossil dwarf species of people. Also known as the “hobbit” by analogy with the creatures invented by J. Tolkien. – Ed.).

In October, locals informed that in the jungle of Africa, in the Congo region, there is an upright creature similar to a Yeti.

Traces of Bigfoot, his refuge are regularly found in Komi. Yeti visits have recently been reported from eyewitnesses from the Karelian Isthmus and the border zone near Vyborg, where there are dungeons and a huge bunker near an abandoned military airfield.

Inverness, December 23. A new photograph of a mysterious creature “the size of a very large seal” in Loch Ness has been announced as another official sighting of the Loch Ness monster.

Tourist Karen Scott, returning from Aberdeen, noticed a strange creature in the Scottish Loch Ness. The woman managed to capture her observation in the photo. At first, Scott took what he saw for a big bird, she admitted to reporters. According to the traveler, while she took out the camera, the mysterious creature managed to submerge itself under the water.

“By the time I turned on the camera on my phone, it was slowly submerged under the water and then reappeared at a short distance,” she shared.

Scott and her friend compared the creature they saw to a large seal, but workers at the lake have denied this assumption. According to experts, seals rarely get that far into Loch Ness.

The tourist flow to these places in 2020 was much lower than in previous years due to the coronavirus pandemic, experts studying Nessie noted. Despite this circumstance, during this year, travelers recorded a large amount of evidence of the existence of the Loch Ness monster, scientists were surprised.
