40th Anniversary: Whitehall New York Bigfoot

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on August 25th, 2016


BIGFOOT NOTE: TONIGHT (yesterday) IS AUGUST 24, 2016– This marks the 40th-Anniversary of the so-called “Abair Incident.” 40 years ago this evening three teenagers encountered a Bigfoot-like creature on a rural road (Abair Road) outside of Whitehall, New York.

Authorities were alerted and investigated. Over a week-long period, there were at least a dozen eyewitness reports of a large red-eyed hairy bi-pedal creature that looked like a gorilla and made a screeching noise. Adding to the mystery, this region was in the midst of a major UFO flap involving scores of reports across the state. It was a major paranormal outbreak– hard to believe it’s been forty-years.

Eric Miner, an excellent artist working out of Whitehall, drew this sketch based on eyewitness testimonies. The investigation into this sighting and others continues.
