A Utah man claims he found the fossilized head of Bigfoot, telling a local newspaper about his finding.
“I found a fossilized Bigfoot skull,” said Todd May of Ogden, Utah, according to the Standard-Examiner.
May showed the “fossil” to a reporter at the paper, who described it as a rock that “looks vaguely like a smaller version of one of those Easter Island heads.” It had a pronounced forehead, flat nose, and a “chiseled” jaw and chin, the paper said.
He found it near Ogden Canyon after he spotted it sticking up in the dirt.
“So I went and dug it out, and you couldn’t tell what it was ’cause the head was face down; all you could see was the back of it,” he told the paper. “But when I dug it out you could see the face, perfect.”
May described himself as an avid Bigfoot tracker.
“I’ve been tracking and watching for Bigfoot,” he said. “I’m very curious, interested in that, and wanted to get footage on it ’cause I’ve ran across him a couple of times.”
He said that he knew the fossil belonged to the legendary creature because he had seen it in person several times in the past.
“A couple of nights something was breaking branches and throwing rocks in the water,” May said of an incident around a month ago. “And I thought it was just some obnoxious people or kids or something in the canyon.”
But when he went in for closer look, he said it wasn’t the case.
“It was tall, it was big, it was big around — pretty good size. And it kind of looked back at me and I was just frozen. … So I just stood there with the light on it for a minute, and then I heard somebody across the way yell, ‘Oh my gosh, it’s a monster!’ or something. So somebody else had seen it,” he told the paper.
May’s purported finding comes around a month after a Pennsylvania man called 911, reporting that he had proof of Bigfoot tracks in the woods near his home.
However, when police carried out an investigation, they determined that what the man found was only mother bear tracks.
But the man, John Winesickle, was adamant that Bigfoot made the tracks.
“A bear can’t go down a steep bank on all twos,” he told WeAreCentralPA.com. “This is Bigfoot.”
He also claimed the beast made noise.
“The voice is so deep,” he told the website. “I’ve heard bass singers on television and they can’t even come close to the bass sound it made to me.”
