Bigfoot in ILLINOIS
Big foot is like a male gorilla in appearance. Bigfoot is commonlyreported to have a strong, unpleasant smell by those who haveclaimed that they have seen this creature.For more than a century, reports have filtered out of rural andsouthern Illinois about strange, man-like beasts that resemble a crossbetween man and ape.The stories of Bigfoot have been passed along from generation togeneration and have long been recorded by both professional andamateur researchers.The most famous Bigfoot sightings have taken place in the PacificNorthwest; such creatures do occasionally turn up in Illinois.The earliest sighting that I could find occurred around 1912. A womannamed Beaulah Schroat reported that her and her brothers oftenspotted huge, hairy creatures near their home in Effingham. This mayhave been the first sighting in Illinois, but it was not the first one in theGreat Lakes region. As far back as 1839, witnesses in Michigan City,Indiana were reporting a "wild child" near Fish Lake. Today, we wouldcall such a creature "Bigfoot".
