2009, Zaleski State Forest, Ohio: Bigfoot Petunia Garden

While mushroom hunting in Zaleski State Forest, Bryce Hamilton stumbled upon a clearing in the woods. The clearing was circled with tree stumps and the stumps ringed with an ivy chain. At first, Hamilton was hesitant to enter the ring, until he realized that the entire area within the ring was filled with petunias. Petunias are Hamilton’s favorite flower.

He gingerly climbed over the delicate ivy chain to enter the circle. As Hamilton made his way around the petunia garden, he was amazed at the health and vitality of the flowers. Just as Hamilton was about to pick a few to put in his mushroom sack, he heard a loud and angry growl that turned into a howling shout.

Hamilton, realized that he was trespassing on a Bigfoot Petunia garden. He had heard that the creatures love petunias and eat them like candy.

Hamilton is convinced that, had, he picked a few of the flowers he would be dead today, since the Bigfoot would have been soooo angry it would have killed him. As it was Hamilton leapt over the ivy chain and high tailed it out of the area.

1973, Seven Mile Creek, Ohio: Couple Finds Bigfoot Leg

Dustin and Emily Littlestone were walking their dog, Tiger, along the Seven Mile Creek trail, when they stumbled upon a gruesome discovery.

Tiger started pulling and yelping at his leash. He was trying to get over to a strangely bent and twisted fallen tree. Dustin, the more indulgent of the dog’s owners, walked over to the tree to see what Tiger was so interested in.

Immediately, Dustin called out for Emily to come over. As usual, she was hesitant and questioned him about what he saw. Dustin replied that she really needed to see this.

Once Emily, finally, walked over she gasped with disgust. Laying in the leaves and muck as a dismembered leg. It was almost a foot wide, and covered in course reddish brown hair. The couple determined that it was a Bigfoot leg by the tremendous size of the foot attached to the severed leg.

Dustin wanted to collect it and bring it to the authorities. But Emily told him to stop being stupid. Tiger seemed intent upon chewing it.

1977, Strouds Run State Park, Ohio: Boys Build Bigfoot Entrapment Wall

While camping with their family, brothers Clinton and Adam Mahula became convinced their camp site was being stalked by a ravenous Bigfoot.

In order to protect themselves and their mom and dad, they came up with a complicated, if not wholly effective, plan of traps and walls.

They spend hours upon hours collecting rocks and branches that they arranged in a four inch high maze. Clinton had the idea that Bigfoot were naturally curious and would get trapped in the maze, trying to figure out the pattern. But there was no pattern and the Bigfoot would get trapped.

Adam was not as certain that a small maze on twigs on the ground would contain an 18 foot tall Bigfoot, but he kept his concerns to himself.

2001, Forked Run State Park, Ohio: Rocks Thrown at Hunters

Vinny Dick, Jr and his hunting buddy Danny Drake had set up their tree stands a few hours before sunrise. They were already four beers into their twelve pack and had not seen a single white tail bopping around the forest. The pair drank in silence. Waiting.

The first rock hit the tree next to Dick’s head. Shards of stone and bark hit the side of his face. The second and third rocks hit Drake in the chest and shoulder. The impact made him drop his rifle to the forest floor.

The rocks flew fast and furious after the gun hit the ground. Dick managed to stand up and shout that he was going kill who ever was throwing rocks them. He managed to get that out before a rock knocked his hat off and broke his nose.

Drake jumped from the tree sit and rolled his ankle pretty badly. He managed to crawl behind some boulders that shielded him from the barrage. Dick was not so lucky, he tried to climb down the rope ladder, but kept getting pelted in the back and legs with rocks.

Dick was bruised and bleeding when he hit the ground. By the time he crawled over to the hiding spot next to Drake, the rocks had stopped, but he howling began. At that point, it became clear that the two had been under attack from an angry Bigfoot.

Dick thinks that the Bigfoot wanted to hunt that same area and was upset by competition. Drake is thankful to be alive, really.

1985, Cuyahoga National Park, Ohio: Hikers Document Tree Arches

Bryan Rossington and Gary Lester were hiking in the Cuyahoga park when they noticed something odd with the a lot of the tree branches.

There appeared to be a pattern to the way various tree branches were aligned. It looked like the branches had been intentionally bent into arches. Rossington and Lester followed the arches for nearly a mile as it wove in and out of the forest. They counted nearly 150 arches in the trees.

Rossington postulated that the arches were made by art students, while Lester was convinced that the arches were made by Bigfoot. But then Lester always thought everything was made by Bigfoot.

1993, Mohican State Park, Ohio: Man Sees Bigfoot Drinking in Waterfalls

While hiking the two mile loop in Mohican Park, Eddie Fricks stopped at the top of Clear Fork Gorge. While sitting for a minute and watching the low flow falls of Big Lyons Falls, Fricks saw a human-like figure emerge from the shadows. 80 feet below him, Fricks could make out the matted brown hair, the large bulbous nose, and the massive bare feet of a Bigfoot.

The creature did not see him or did not care enough to acknowledge Fricks. It went up to the small stream of water falling from the top of the Gorge. It stood directly under the falls and with its head back began gulping down the water. Fricks could see the rows of massive, sharp teeth and the enlarged red tongue as the creature lapped at the water hitting its face.

Fricks sat in place, too frightened to move he admits willingly, watching the Bigfoot until it slowly ambled away. Once Fricks was certain it left the area, he got up and walked briskly the rest of the way back to safety.

1938, Deadwood, Ohio: Miner’s Wife Chased Down The Hill

Mildred Sabell went looking for her husband, John Sabell, who had not come home after his shift. Mildred suspected that Mr. Sabell was drinking at the Social Hall up the hill from their house. Mildred climbed the hill, muttering a combination of Slovak curses and English prayers.

Just as Mildred got to the bend in the road, she was startled. Standing on the side of the road, cloaked in the shadows of the trees, was a monstrous figure. As she started to say something, the creature stood to its full height of 15 or 20 feet. Its head the size of a car hood. It smelled like a septic and rubbish.

It growled at Mildred, who jumped up and screamed all at once. Before any of the men in the social hall heard her cries, she turned and started to run down the hill. She was in tears as she heard the massive fleshy slaps of the creatures bare feet hitting the road.

Mildred ran faster when she caught a glimpse of her porch light in the distance. She, also, thought she heard the drunken yelling of the men behind her. But it was hard to tell over the heavy breathing hooting that the monster chasing. Mildred raced through the backyard, ducking under the laundry lines, and into the house. The monster, not knowing about the laundry lines, howled and hollered as it got tangled up. It pulled one of the stakes out of the ground and dragged it off with it as it ran back into the woods.

When John Sabell got home seconds later, he was laughing and out of breath. To this day, Mildred’s Race with Bigfoot is a matter of conjecture. Some say she was the victim of a cruel prank by some of the town’s men, while others claim she barely survived a dangerous encounter with a Bigfoot!
