Near the town of Canton, Illinois on October 17, 2010, a Bigfoot was sighted. Here is an excerpt from a report to the Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization (BFRO):
After a late concert at the square in Canton, Illinois, my friend was bicycling home and turned right into the parking lot, that leads past a shed, fence, and dumpster. Hearing a shuffling [and banging] noise near the dumpster, she slowed her bike and began looking. Behind the shed was more than a noise. A shadowy sasquatch shape. Its puffy balloon feet (as she described it), held up a stocky, not-so-tall frame (6 ft.). Startled, it turned and walked into the bushes, moving branches to get into the woods. This was a thinly wooded area, and on the other side, a corn field. She freaked out and sped right home and told me.
The most interesting part of this sighting is that it fits with several other similar reports. The investigator wrote: “The area does have a population so I reviewed a satellite map. There is a large wooded area adjoining the area of the sighting location. We have several reports from this county in our database.”
