COUNTY: Peoria County
LOCATION DETAILS: I prefer to keep location confidential as I do not want it published to protect the group of Sasquatch that live there.
OBSERVED: On August 14, 2011, I was walking through heavily wooded area and decided to walk along creek bed. I came upon what looked like a very large footprint. I could clearly see the entire outline of the foot, as well as 5 distinct toe prints. I did not have measuring tape but l took pictures and measured with pack of gum and a cigarette pack. If I have to guess the length and width I would say at least 17 inches long and at least 7 inches wide.
Had seen couple other prints on hillside but could not capture image well on my camera.
Shortly after I finished studying print and wondering what made it, I continued walking creek bottom. I heard movement and large branch being twisted. At that time I decided to get out of the woods. I go back often because I know that the group of Sasquatches are not gonna hurt me. They are trying to get my attention and are testing me.
ALSO NOTICED: Heard movement and branches being twisted on hillside after I photographed footprint.
OTHER WITNESSES: I was only witness and had been walking in woods for about half hour prior to finding print.
OTHER STORIES: None
TIME AND CONDITIONS: I found print in late morning or early afternoon 11:30 a.m. or 12:30 p.m. Weather was hot and sunny.
ENVIRONMENT: Heavily wooded area, very hilly, a lot of ravines, found at creek bottom.
Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Stan Courtney:
I met the witness on-site and we hiked the approximate area of the footprint find. It was a couple of weeks after her find.
In Summary regarding this report:
• The complete footprint was 17" long.
• It was 7" wide at the ball of the foot
• The toes were all plainly visible.
• The footprint was in a muddy area.
• Other smaller animals had stepped into the track later making it difficult to get a great picture.
