Bigfoot Encounters

Knox County, Vincennes, Indiana 1982

Halloween, October 31, 1982

A Bigfoot - Dan Thais (left) and Jim Thompson show their plaster cast of the 15-inch footprint they found at the former Knox County landfill on the Thais family farm. Neither was prepared to say whether the finding was a monster, a hoax or something explainable; but they agreed that the prints they found and the damage to trees along the trail indicated a strong, heavy creature and would have been too much work for someone to fabricate as mere Halloween prank.
