The Phillips Wisconsin Bee is reporting that the BFRO will be descending on undisclosed locations in Wisconsin for 2 consecutive weekends in June-July. The expeditions are scheduled for June 22-25 and June 29 to July 2.
The expedition was spurred in part by the accounts of a local man who claims to have seen a bigfoot on two different occasions in the Lugerville area. Don Young told THE-BEE that the eyewitness sasquatch accounts, which are featured on the BFRO Web site but are not attributed, are his. Young says his most recent sasquatch siting was in September 2003 in a cedar swamp near Rock Creek Road.
Young claims that he and a 6- to 7-feet tall bigfoot creature engaged in a sort of cat-and-mouse game for almost an hour. He had another encounter in a swamp three miles away about a year earlier, he says.
The area where Young says he saw the sasquatch is primarily county forest land. THE-BEE asked Eric Holm, a Price County forester, whether he has ever seen any evidence of bigfoot.
"Well yeah," he said sarcastically. "But I didn’t tell anyone because I didn’t want people to think I was crazy."
Holm said one of his colleagues wears size 15 boots, and that person might go barefoot in the Lugerville area before the expedition arrives.
BFRO prides itself on detecting hoaxes, according to its Web site.
Have they already forgotten about the Sonoma footage?
I wonder if "Mark Nelson" is planning a trip to Wisconsin?
