Possible Bigfoot Sighting In Leeds
Gossip is flying in the town of Leeds, but it’s not typical talk for small town Maine.

A local couple says Bigfoot is real and he’s living nearby. Monday morning a pair spotted a 7 foot tall, hairy man crossing the road near the Greene/Leeds town line. And they’re not alone. Over the last 25 years, There have been numerous Bigfoot sightings, leaving locals to believe there may be some truth to it. And it’s getting enough traction that a cryptozoologist visited [the] area to do his own investigation. In 2006 – there was a mysterious beast thought to live in Turner. It was later confirmed to just be a dog.

See video here. There is a good graphic, a map of the area under consideration, shown during the story. Be forewarned; the reporters snickered through the segment.

Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations.

    hey loren & everyone this awesome new news interview about the maine new sasquatch encounter. i thought it was very positive as well. keep me posted on any newer maine activity or evidence etc 🙂

  2. Yewlon responds:

    Its very interesting. Im always interested to hear about encounters in Maine. As im from The Maritime Provinces of Canada, were sighting are very scarce. And if something is possible in Maine then in my opinion there might be something in my neck of the woods.

  3. Kalashnikovnik responds:

    ditto i’m really looking forward to more news about this. Leeds is about an hour from me and i’m kinda considering heading up there just to cruise the roads and hope i see something (not likely i know). I also live a short distance from Richmond where supposedly some bigfoot tracks were found years back. Richmond is close to Litchfield and Wales, two of the towns mentioned as being in the “Turner Triangle,” if i remember correctly.

  4. shownuff responds:

    i really hope it comes out true. I love this Big Being. Just think how much would change if we ever film one now with an HD camera. Or Trap one then let it go. I dont mind them being studied but i dont want them in a lab. thats just wrong. One day Loren. And that one day is coming closer and closer. Thanks to modern Tech!
