Possible footprints found northwest of Robinson

YEAR: 2007

SEASON: Winter

MONTH: January

STATE: Illinois

COUNTY: Crawford County

LOCATION DETAILS: Northwest of Robinson


NEAREST ROAD: County Highway 2

OBSERVED: About four years ago I found some foot prints near my drive way, the prints were about six foot apart, you could clearly see the footprints because the day before four inches of snow fell. There were only about eight footprints in total. We have a fence around our pond, the fence from the end of our drive is about ten, twelve yards away. The prints came from the road towards our pond, funny thing is they died out at the fence. I tried to track it but it left behind no prints that I could find after it went over our fence.The night before I found the footprints near our driveway, I heard my dog going towards the end of our drive sounding like he was wanting to attack something, I thought it was coyotes so I went outside but I didn't hear or see anything. I'm thinking this is a highway they use to move north through Crawford county IL, both sightings were in the winter months I have no idea why they would be going north in the winter time.


OTHER STORIES: My cousin said he seen a bigfoot cross the road in front of his car about twenty five years ago, he said it took two steps to cross the road, it had white hair and was around nine foot tall
he guessed.This happened about two hundred yards from my house.

TIME AND CONDITIONS: Daytime, clear and cold.

ENVIRONMENT: Fields and woods
