STARK — Sheriff’s deputies investigated a possible Sasquatch sighting last week near a campsite at the Kickapoo Valley Reserve.

The Vernon County Sheriff’s Department received the report from just one person, who was driving near South Jug Creek Road in the town of Stark.

“The person who called it in was driving down the road, and they saw what they described as a dark-haired… Sasquatch,” Sheriff John Spears said. “It looked like it was hiding in the ditch line. When they went by, it jumped.”

Spears sent a patrol car to the area, but the deputy turned up nothing.

While all calls are taken seriously, Spears said the the Sasquatch sighting has led to a few giggles around the department.

Reading from the report on the incident, Spears said, “All that they could tell us was it was a large figure that was dark in color, black-brown in color, with no clothes and it looked like it was just fur.”

The person calling in the report said, “There’s no way it could have been a wolf,” Spears said.

The department released details about the incident Tuesday among the 22 reports of suspicious activity it fielded last week. The alleged Bigfoot sighting occurred Thursday.

“That same day we had some peacock problems in the county, so it was one of those things where you never know what you’re going to get on any given day,” Spears said. “After I signed the press release, I figured I’d probably get a few phone calls.”

While the department was unable to confirm the sighting of Sasquatch, it did confirm the sighting of two peacocks in the town of Christiana.

Hope I didn't startle anyone last week. Was just passing through. And certainly didn't mean to bring out the constabulary . . .

Oh boy, Bugs Raplin is going to start with this sighting was composed by our Government so it would keep us busy and stear us away from the fact that our Government flew the planes into the Trade center, we didn't kill OBL and the first moon landing was a hoax filmed in a movie studio in Vegas.

Sasquatch? Not unless the creature has BIG FEET!

The Deputy and his quarter horse Leon are the first mounted unit to be deployed with the Vernon County Police force. Deploying a mounted patrol unit gives the Vernon County Police force an advantage when responding to sasquatch rescue operations in isolated areas.
