Indiana residents have their own Bigfoot stories to tell.
April 2007 – A couple hunts morel mushrooms along Big Walnut Creek. The wife seperates from her husband to forage on her own. When she bends to pick one she hears audible breathing. She spies a man staring intently at her from 50 feet away. She takes a closer look and realizes this is no man, but rather something ape-like covered in dark hair standing entirely motionless against a tree. She estimates the figure to be 7 feet tall. She looks away briefly for her husband and when she looks back the figure has moved behind the tree with only a shoulder visible. She yells and sprints through the forest until she finds their truck.
The husband eventually returns to the vehicle and finds his wife locked inside shaking uncontrollably. She tells him what she has seen and the husband admits he had heard something following him through the forest, chattering in a low muted voice.
August 2007 – A man sitting on his porch around 10:30 PM hears noises emitting from his apple orchard. Thinking it is kids climbing in the tree branches he yells and the noise stops. Later his dog becomes quite agitated at something outside. The man steps out back and sees a black ape type creature 7 to 8 feet tall. It appears to have no neck, just a head resting on broad shoulders. It stands motionless, staring at the man until it finally steps out of sight. He has since had other sightings of the creature moving quickly across the field next to his house. Several people in the area have also seen the creature.
The same man claimed to have found what appeared to be a large nesting area in the woods, constructed of branches and twigs. In the nest were clumps of matted hair or fur. When he later took his brother to the site the nest was completely destroyed, with no evidence of the hair or fur.
December 2008 – A witness claims to have heard strange primate like calls coming from the woods behind his home. The powerful whooping calls were followed by a series of wood knocks. At the time, these noises had been going on some 18 months, but had actually originated in the summer of 2006. The witness stated,”What struck me initially was the power behind these calls; it would take an animal with tremendous lung capacity to make them carry like they do.”
