Possible footprint found near Peoria
(Show Printer-friendly Version)

YEAR: 2011

SEASON: Summer

MONTH: August

DATE: 14

STATE: Illinois

COUNTY: Peoria County

LOCATION DETAILS: I prefer to keep location confidential as I do not want it published to protect the group of Sasquatch that live there.

OBSERVED: On August 14, 2011, I was walking through heavily wooded area and decided to walk along creek bed. I came upon what looked like a very large footprint. I could clearly see the entire outline of the foot, as well as 5 distinct toe prints. I did not have measuring tape but l took pictures and measured with pack of gum and a cigarette pack. If I have to guess the length and width I would say at least 17 inches long and at least 7 inches wide.

Had seen couple other prints on hillside but could not capture image well on my camera.

Shortly after I finished studying print and wondering what made it, I continued walking creek bottom. I heard movement and large branch being twisted. At that time I decided to get out of the woods. I go back often because I know that the group of Sasquatches are not gonna hurt me. They are trying to get my attention and are testing me.

ALSO NOTICED: Heard movement and branches being twisted on hillside after I photographed footprint.

OTHER WITNESSES: I was only witness and had been walking in woods for about half hour prior to finding print.


TIME AND CONDITIONS: I found print in late morning or early afternoon 11:30 a.m. or 12:30 p.m. Weather was hot and sunny.

ENVIRONMENT: Heavily wooded area, very hilly, a lot of ravines, found at creek bottom.

Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Stan Courtney:

I met the witness on-site and we hiked the approximate area of the footprint find. It was a couple of weeks after her find.

In Summary regarding this report:

The complete footprint was 17" long.
It was 7" wide at the ball of the foot
The toes were all plainly visible.
The footprint was in a muddy area.
Other smaller animals had stepped into the track later making it difficult to get a great picture.

The single left foot impression.
