There was an article on the front page of Mlive that some people believe that Bigfoot broke trees in Bay County.

So I thought I would post reasons why Bigfoot does not exist in Michigan...

#1 There have never been any dead bigfoot bodies or bones found. Think about it... They dig for construction. I once worked with a guy who dug up dinosaur bones when making a pond. Yet with all of the digging and construction work across the world no one has yet found a bone of such a creature. More importantly, if they existed in every state as some bigfoot research sites claim wouldn't somebody have then stumbled upon a body after centuries of Americans living here?

#2 People are either superstitious or liars...if you look at Bigfoot research websites they show that bigfoot sightings exist in every state... The third most sightings happen in Ohio, where much of the state is flat farmland. They occur in places where there isn't enough room for a breeding population of bigfoots to stay hidden from civilization. For instance the Nunica/Spring Lake area has had Bigfoot sightings... I go hiking out in the woods all the time there...is there really that much wilderness for a breeding population to stay hidden let alone even one? No.


What are your opinions?

Hello Kiddo!
In response to your statement about Ohio, and that "much of the state is flat farmland" (in your whimsical #2 Reasons as to why Bigfoot does not exist):
Do your homework before you boast your "self-proclamed above average intelligence".
Your "much of the state [of Ohio] is flat farmland" reference about Ohio tells me nothing more about your knowledge of Ohio than that you've been to Cedar Point a few times. If you drive from Michigan and skirt along Lake Erie to Cedar Point it would be easy to get that impression about Ohio. The fact that you state "much" of the State of Ohio is flat farmland seems to indicate that probably took a wrong turn and went maybe 10-20 miles out of your way during your ingress or egress to/from Cedar Point and made the assumption that you've seen the whole state.
Most of Ohio has hills and rivers that make any in Michigan look like ant hills and creeks.

Hey Mike,
Why don't you check BFRO.net most of the bigfoot sightings do occur in Ohio's flat farm land. I am sorry if that breaks your heart.

If they supposedly live in every single state except hawaii in sizeable numbers to breed there would be physical evidence to their existence by now. Humans have lived here for centuries. If someone I know can dig up dinosaur bones by accident making a pond then someone by now would have dug up bigfoot bones.

Why no dead bodies? If they live in 49 states, sooner or later after centureis of living here someone surely would have stumbled across a dead body.

No solid proof. After all of these years. We're not talking about a small isolated wilderness that they live in. If you actually bother to look at the reports of bigfoots, they are everywhere. Farm fields, small woods between developments, suburbs of major US cities all across this nation. Everywhere. Everywhere. Which only goes to show the phenomenon is on our heads not in reality.

I shouldn't say this, but Santa Claus, the Tooth Fairy, and the Easter Bunny aren't real either. Sorry I had to go there Mike.

No I didn't say or imply that the entire state of Ohio was flat. Thanks for your solid input.

Does anyone believe that in Bay City's recreation area there are bigfoots? The area is surrounded by developments and gets heavy foot-traffic all year - especially in the summer. Yet people think in that relatively small area there are bigfoots living who nonetheless snap trees apart. If they are just coming in and out of the area then they are passing through developed areas.

Does anyone actually believe that there are bigfoots around the town of Holland Michigan? People have spotted them around the city and in the city. What about in Spring Lake Michigan?

From my blog today:

Wednesday, June 27th

Ya, Sasquatch Loves the U.P., Eh?

When I was ten, the neighbor boys took me to the Fenton theater to see The Legend of Boggy Creek (1972); a sort of Bigfoot does Arkansas "true story." The movie was so terrifying to me, (one imdb reviewer writes "G rated? Are They Insane?") that I ended up on the floor. At one point in the "film" Bigfoot turns over a travel trailer filled with partying teens. Ever since, I've been looking out for him or her or.....them.

A new article this morning informs that new research is taking place in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, primarily Marquette County. I went to college in Marquette and admit there were quite a few keggers that took place in rustic areas that I'm sure Bigfoot would like. Perhaps we entertained him with our odd hacky-sack play or they snuck a thrill on the ski jump at Suicide Hill in Ishpeming. Apparently, four people say all things are possible and scientists are there to talk to them. BFRO, or Bigfoot Field Research Organization (where do I get a t-shirt?) says that in all but three expeditions, BFRO Bigfoot scientists have seen or heard a Sasquatch. As Napoleon Dynamite says Luckieeeee....

I've camped in the U.P....too many times to count and with this new information...I might now consider sleeping with my camera ready and pepper spray. That sort of preparation has National Enquirer written all over it.

Read about BFRO's new Upper research:

I agree LOL. I did a mountain bike race once in Ohio and it had 1000 feet of climbing per lap on the course It was fun, but very hard.

I believe in the Sasquatch legend. I have never seen one myself, but I guess I'm super open-minded...I remember watching "In Search Of" as a kid with Leonard Nemoy...Anyone remember the episode about Bigfoot?

Bigfoot hugs,
L
