(Show Printer-friendly Version)
COUNTY: Coshocton County
LOCATION DETAILS: This took place near Warsaw, Ohio in Coshocton County, Ohio.
NEAREST TOWN: Warsaw
OBSERVED: A footprint that was 11 1/2" long, 6" at the ball and 3" at the heel was discovered on a sandbar and cast. The cast indicated that the depth of the foot at the ball was two inches and the depth at the heel was one inch.
OTHER WITNESSES: Ginseng hunting.
TIME AND CONDITIONS: May 19, 1988.
I received information on this discovery via telephone. I made plans to go to a local store in Nellie, Ohio to view the cast. Several pictures were taken of the cast. Four toes can be made out on the cast.
ENVIRONMENT: In a wooded area. The creature apparently was walking along and had to cross a creek. It happened to step on a sand bar, which was no more than 2 feet by 3 feet. It left another partial print and then stepped back onto solid ground.
