Report # 58379  (Class B)
Submitted by witness no on Thursday, October 19, 2017.
Possible ongoing activity at a farmhouse outside Torrington

YEAR: 2017

SEASON: Summer


STATE: Connecticut

COUNTY: Litchfield County

LOCATION DETAILS: Fields, woods, rural, plenty of game and other wildlife very hilly

NEAREST TOWN: Torrington

OBSERVED: I don't have a specific incident to report but I live in a rural area of Torrington CT. While my wife and I have never seen anything we hear strange noises constantly starting at dusk and continuing through the night. At least once every couple of months we hear knocking and dragging noises against our house and on windows that are approximately 6 and half feet off the ground. Occasionally load thumps against the house are also heard. Once in a while on our porch smoking a cigarette, me and a friend experienced something very large running through the field behind my house. We could not see anything but from my experience in the area it was very heavy and moving in a straight line across the field. Also the cows in the back lot have gone crazy more then once very late in the night. I cant say its Bigfoot but we have something going on here. Thanks for your time. Please excuse my grammar I'm using my phone for this.

ALSO NOTICED: I have never found a Track or print anywhere

OTHER STORIES: I have never inquired. Afraid of scrutiny

ENVIRONMENT: 1 and my wife

Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Tim Vogel:

After a lengthy conversation with this couple in Western Connecticut about the Bigfoot phenomenon/popularity, and amount of possible activity in the area, I was encouraged.

Because I know the reported history of the area, this is just another testament to the area. These folks are and have been having multiple incidents including hitting the house and what sounds like dragging across the siding on the home, Whoops, chatter, and wood-knocks off in the timber line in a few areas within the farm. All this activity combined, along with him adding to this report that he saw something running, within a hundred yards upright on two legs across the field. He said it looked as though it was fast and moving effortlessly. It vanished into the timber and was gone. The couple will start doing some of their own investigating with guidance from us/BFRO. We'll see what's in the future.
