“When the flashlight hit his eyes he immediately turned his head and moved his body and turned the opposite direction we were in,” --Teresa; recent witness, spiritual medium and animal communicator from New Jersey

Some of you may be familiar with the tale of Danial Boon's Bigfoot encounter. In a 1992 Boone biography, John Mack Faragher writes about him "killing a ten-foot, hairy giant he called a Yahoo,” What better place to do some Bigfoot field research than the Daniel Boone National Forest.

A local Kentucky paper, the Morehead news ran a story today about a a 60-person investigation that brought one person eye-to-eye with a Sasquatch. The picture above was in the inset of the article, and had more to do a with a sighting in Pennsylvania, but they paired it with the article becuase it was part of a slideshow. We tracked down the picture origin and you can read about it here.

Bigfoot hunter says she saw the creature

Sept. 10, 2012 —       Nearly 60 persons paid $75 apiece Saturday to join paranormal researchers in the search for Bigfoot in the Daniel Boone National Forest.

One of those said she was lucky enough that night to catch a glimpse of the creature.

Teresa uses only her first name, as do many Bigfoot believers, for fear of ridicule.  She is an established spiritual medium and animal communicator from New Jersey.

She and her group had been walking the trails near Cave Run Lake for a few hours Saturday night and were not very deep into the woods, she said, when she heard grunting and growling.

Her group stumbled upon the creature as he was trying to kill a deer. He was interrupted by bright lights shining in his face.

      “When the flashlight hit his eyes he immediately turned his head and moved his body and turned the opposite direction we were in,” she said.

      The eight-foot-tall creature quickly ran away, deep into the forest, Teresa said, with her chasing him.

      “I wanted to talk to him,” she said.

      The sighting happened between 11:30 p.m. and 12:30 a.m., she said.

      There were three search groups and, according to Teresa, hers was the only one that spotted the big, hairy, ape-like man.

      In order for the search to be legal, paranormal researcher Chad Morin paid $150 for a temporary special-use permit from the U.S. Forest Service to “attempt to locate the famed Bigfoot creature.”

      “I think the permit pretty much speaks for itself,” Teresa said.  “Why would you issue a permit if something doesn’t exist?

      “They’re saying, in my opinion, ‘We’re not agreeing or disagreeing,’ but they’re also not stopping us either.  I believe the government does know and was that’s why the permit was issued,” she said.

      Copies of the permit were passed around Saturday afternoon at the Hampton Inn, where presentations were given all afternoon, leading up to the search.

      The room was filled with persons who were obviously interested in the subject but reluctant to share their stories, especially with the press.

      “I don’t talk a lot because I don’t want to be put on the sixth floor,” one man said, referring to St. Claire Regional Medical Center’s Mental Health Unit.

      The hunt lasted from 8 p.m. to 2:30 a.m. Teresa said when crews returned to the Hampton Inn, residents were more comfortable about talking.

      “I was very surprised,” she said.  “More people turned out to tell their stories than I would have imagined. For something that doesn’t exist there are an awful lot of stories for people to tell.”

      Researchers and investigators will lead another local hunt in April 2013.

  1. $150.00 for the permit? A bit pricey. A hunting license is less expensive. SWP

    1. Yes a hunting license is less expinsive. But u can't get a license to hunt Bigfoot infact i believe they are a protected species!! Why would u protect something that doesn't exist??

  2. Guy I have a couple of problems with this story as it is being told. Yes, I tried to watch that livestream that they did but couldn't stand the buzzing and never could see anything on the laptop that they were using for the visual part of it.

    I don't think that Bigfoot is going to try to kill anything, and I don't think that it would be disturbed by people if it were getting dinner either. I think it would have finished the kill and just walked away with the prey item. While I realize that the drawing was done by a forensic artist, it is still just a little too human for me to believe it, are they sure that they just didn't see a very tall person poaching?

    1. A sasquatch wouldn't kill anything or be disturbed by people? Only if its busy hugging rainbows.

  4. "Teresa uses only her first name, as do many Bigfoot believers, for fear of ridicule. She is an established spiritual medium and animal communicator from New Jersey." Right away, this smells like poo. When you have both Spiritual Medium and Animal Communicator on your resume, it's a %100 probability that your dealing with a nut job. Besides being the only one of the group who happened to see a bigfoot that looks like the bass player for Prince, I'm sure she's the only one who has gone to Sedona and sat under a pyramid to feel the earth's harmonics.

      Bass player for Prince? That Bigfoot looks like Tom Araya of Slayer.

  5. Interesting account, sounds like a lot of fun with open-minded people. I'd have liked to join them. However, my skeptical side does lean toward the park service issuing the permit, not so much because they believe Bigfoot exists, so much as the desire for $150. I suspect, if I was willing to pay them $150, I could wander the forest and look for pretty much anything I wanted.

    1. You have to pay the fee if you are making money off the venture ..That's what the fee is about. That's the law.

  6. Pamela, you can wander the DBNF and look for anything you want at any time. It's public land. The $150 permit was an "event fee".

  9. Looks like a human and better looking than many. Why the "apeman" adjective? Hairyness? Aren't we elitist. Poor guy. When any DNA surfaces it comes back in the human range. The "Yahoos" are the participants.

  10. It's very understandable why most people don't consider if a bigfoot exists , its the last thing most people want to consider when they venture for their two day outing, Large Populations Coastal areas seem to where many outdoor enthusiasts head for. I have been fortunate to have visited many of the national parks , Forests, to include the Cascades, all I'm saying is venture there and make it a couple of weeks.
    Now that's called Squatchin, but know this before you go, Some not all of them eats people!
