TODAY IN BIGFOOT HISTORY!
1999, Big Bend National Park, Texas : Bigfoot Trap Covered in Doughnuts
Jonny Lund and his brother Lenny were on vacation with their family. Bored with the scenic views and constant hiking, they came up with the idea of constructing a bigfoot trap a few yards from their campsite.
Neither boy was ever a boy scout, nor did they have any skills, other than imaginary, in tracking or trapping. So the actual trap they created was more of a useless art project of useless rope and leaves and a small hole in the dirt. But it took the boys all day to make and they were quite proud of their accomplishments. Needing some bait, they approached their stepmother, Janice, for some ideas.
Janice wanting to placate the boys and reward them for leaving her alone for most of the days, offered them the jelly doughnuts. The same jelly doughnuts she was convinced the boys would love as a surprise treat, failing to anticipate the fussiness of both boys. Jonny hated jelly and Lenny would not eating anything that he said, “squished.” Janice was very hurt by these responses, but felt redeemed slightly when the boys responded with fist pumped glee when she handed them the box.
The boys spent the next hour or so carefully arranging the doughnuts in a path leading right up to the middle of their pretend bigfoot trap. After dinner, the boys were so excited it took nearly forever to get them to sleep that night. After the boys were asleep, Janice and their father Joe, laughed as they guessed which animal was going to enjoy all those stale jelly doughnuts.
The next morning the boys raced out to their trap to find that all the doughnuts were gone. Jonny did notice a lot of tiny paw prints. After some fast talking, he was able to to convince his bother, Lenny, that those raccoon prints were a baby bigfoot. Since everyone knows that baby bigfoot love doughnuts.
