Due to some redesigning that will be occurring in the new International Cryptozoology Museum space, the Bigfoot at 661 Congress Street will be moving sooner than anticipated. The beast will be transported to its new nearby digs earlier in October than originally planned because easier transportation access will be impossible after a specific wall is completed. While the Congress Street location of the International Cryptozoology Museum will continue to be open in October, however, for a couple weeks, it will be without its landmark Bigfoot.
Here, below, is the last published photo of the critter in its present (old) location (the Bigfoot is not the one wearing a striped shirt):
“We’re going to move the Bigfoot down the street,” Loren Coleman said of the 8-foot-tall, 400-pound “Crookston Bigfoot,” created by Wisconsin artist Curtis Christensen, which was permanently added to the collection of the International Cryptozoology Museum in 2004. (DAVID CARKHUFF PHOTO)
