Do you believe yet?

Not only are the bears coming out of hibernation around the Hudson Valley and Catskills, but so is Bigfoot. I'm not sure how to pluralize Bigfoot: is it Bigfeets? I digress.

The Hudson Valley has been a hot spot lately for alleged Bigfoot sightings. Not so long ago a man in the Rhinebeck area found large footprints in his yard and also reported hearing loud banging noises outside his home.

The Bigfoot Researchers of the Hudson Valley have been on the case and looking into these encounters.

While we wait to hear the final outcome of the Dutchess County sighting, there has been a more recent sighting in the Catskills.

According to phantomsandmonsters.com, on April 23rd around 5:30pm, three hikers who were staying at Villa Roma Resort in Sullivan County "witnessed a huge hair-cover biped step out of the woods and onto the trail."

Before the biped darted away the hikers got a glimpse of the possible Big Foot. They described what they saw as:

standing 8-9 ft in height and broad enough to encompass the width of the trail, which was about 5 ft. The being was fully covered in reddish-brown long hair, except for the face which had dark-colored skin. There was no noise other than the footfalls it made through the underbrush.

The hikers are said to be going back to the trail to search for more evidence.

Does Big Foot exist? Let the debate continue...
