Bare, wide footprints seen in the mud of a February thaw

YEAR: 2001

SEASON: Winter

MONTH: February

STATE: Michigan

COUNTY: Washtenaw County


NEAREST TOWN: ypsilanti

NEAREST ROAD: prospect and geddes

OBSERVED: While mt. biking near a creek I stoped for a break and noticed a set of foot prints that followed the edge of the creek. It was mid febuary and I thought what kids would be out with no shoes this time of year. I joked to myself "baby bigfoot". The tracks in soft mudd showed very clearly had no arch. At the time I didnt think a bigfoot would live around here and just went on my way. It wasnt till i read the report of a sighting one mile from this location that I considered fileing this report. one other detail the creases in the print looked the texture of a crumbled paper bag.not smooth. I would guess the sizes 8 and 10 (shoe size) I ride alone alot and would rather not have bigfoot around here.


OTHER STORIES: read the reports from this area. there is a large population of deer around here. i ride thier trails on my mt. bike.

TIME AND CONDITIONS: Was late afternoon, mid winter thaw about 40 degrees,prints where in clay.

ENVIRONMENT: mixed hard woods and swamp with fields right on the edge of town. who would think here?

Follow-up investigation report:

This individual spends a lot of time outdoors in this area. The bare prints in February puzzled him until he read the other report from near there. He has experience as a land surveyor and is a dedicated mountain biker, so forest areas and wildlands are not new to him. He will watch for other signs.
