14 Inch Prints Near Hudson Bay
According to UPI, large footprints have been found in a forest on the shores of Hudson Bay in Canada, indicating that Bigfoot may be living there.
Each footprint ?was 14 inches or so [long] and five inches wide,? according to Abraham Hunter, chief of the Weemusk First Nation in Peawanuck in Ontario, about 1,000 miles north of Toronto. There ?were quite a few of them, more than twenty? and they headed toward the Winisk River. They were about 2 yards apart, indicating that the creature had a very large stride, and they were definitely not bear tracks. ?A bear would have 4 different footprints,? says Hunter.
The prints were first sighted by a member of the tribe as he drove a 4-wheeler through the Polar Bear Provincial Park, one of Ontario?s largest wildlife preserves. Since then, several other people from the Weemusk Nation have examined the prints.
The creature left no hair on any shrubs as it passed by, but the footprints sank deeply into the soil, indicating that it was big and heavy. ?It?s not just in one area? that the footprints were sighted, says Hunter. ?There?s about 3 different areas, one about 2 miles away and another 1.25 miles away.?
The creature has even been seen. ?About 20 years ago, there was a sighting about 15 or 12.5 miles downstream,? says Hunter. The next day, people in the area went to the spot and ?did find footprints, 16 inches in length. It looked like a man? and was ?heading toward the bush.?
An area supervisor for the Ontario Natural Resources Ministry, along with two other people, went to the spot where the new footprints were found and took photographs. ?They are sending the photographs down for us to have a look,? says Brett Kelly, who works for the ministry in Toronto. ?Apparently, there have been 16 other sightings in the province of Ontario.? While the officials were in the Peawanuck area, ?our ministry staff saw a second set [of prints] 93 miles east.
?There was a sighting last year, in 1999, and a previous sighting to that in the western part of the province,? he adds. Of the latest sighting, he says, ?I think it?s quite heavy, because it left quite a deep footprint, but there?s no estimation of what the actual size of it is.?
