1977, Chetopa, Kansas: Felix Bentley Discovers Half Mile of Bigfoot Tracks
A full year before the Chetopa Bigfoot hoax, Felix Bentley came upon a full half mile of Bigfoot tracks in the woods. Bentley claims that while walking his dogs, Muffin and Porky, he noticed some very weird impressions in the mud. Measuring 17 inches long and 3 inches deep, the footprints were unlike anything Bentley had ever seen.
Quickly, he followed the tracks. His dogs sniffing frantically along the tracks. Bentley estimated that the tracks were clear for at least a half a mile. Then they started to fade as the ground was more leaf covered. His dogs, also, started to get distracted by birds and other small woodland creatures.
Later in the day, Bentley took his wife out into the woods to show her the tracks, but he could not find them again as it had rained pretty hard in the meantime.
