1962, Hidden Springs Forest, Illinois: Half Man Bigfoot Seen Near Cave

A group of kids were playing near some water in Hidden Springs Forest. One of the children saw something emerge from a cave in the ground. Some of the children reported that it was completely hairless and obviously a female creature. The other half of the children claim that the monster was covered in hair and was a very powerful male. The one thing all the children agreed upon was that it was not a normal person, the creature was more like a big monster or hairless ape.

Clearly, the children saw a shape shifting Bigfoot caught emerging from its underground lair.

1946, Leaf River, Illinois: Fisherman Interrupted by Bathing Bigfoot

Tom Griffin was fishing early in the morning.  While he was eating the cheese sandwich he made for his lunch, he heard some very violent splashing coming from a few hundred yards away, down river.  Thinking maybe a bear or maybe some deer were crossing the river, he continued on with his lunch.

When the splashing got closer, Griffin became more alarmed.  If not for his safety, then for the integrity of his fishing lines.  He stood up and walked a little way down stream, keeping an eye on his belongings.  He heard a low muttering growl, then saw an eight foot tall monster splashing around in the middle of the river.

Griffin stood there, shocked.  Could that really be a Bigfoot in the middle of the river?  And could it really be washing itself like a bathing human?  Griffin was not sure he was willing to find out.  He turned right around and ran out of the woods.  A few hours later he returned with a few friends to gather up his fishing rods and cooler.

He never told anyone about the bathing Bigfoot, though he did write it down in the front of his family bible.  The story was found after Griffin’s death by his daughter, who has no reason to discount her father, since he was a very honest man.
