Bigfoot on Hudson Bay
Nunatsiaq News (www.nunatsiaq.com)
IQALUIT — Signs of a sasquatch — a legendary ape-man sometimes called Bigfoot – have turned up on the west coast of Hudson Bay.
Earlier this month a government official discovered a set of metre-long, human-like footprints west of the Weenusk First Nation Reserve near Polar Bear Provincial Park, Ont.
"It’s definitely not a bear," Weenusk’s chief, Abraham Hunter, told the National Post.
"I looked at them. They were six feet apart, walking."
Hunter said elders have long told stories of sasquatches living in the area. Two elders claim to have sighted the creature about 20 years ago, he said.
An official analysis of the prints has not been conducted.
The reserve is west of Sanikiluaq and about 600 kilometres southeast of Arviat.
