Gunpowder Falls State Park
Reported by Jenny Herritt RN
"I was out hiking one morning in early July, and found a large
footprint in the muddy riverside. The footprint was about 18 inches
long and had 4 toes. The width was at least 6 inches and probably more.
My normally friendly Golden Retriever became very anxious, and aggressive.
He would growl and cling to my leg and have his tail tucked down. I
called investigator Dave Bittner who found additional evidence. There
was the leg of a killed deer, which was placed directly on our path.
About a week later, I went hiking again and found another footprint
evidence of a Bigfoot that I photographed. While I photographed the
print, I heard the eerie scream that reminded me of howler monkeys I
have heard in Belize, Central America. Thanks to L. Jen Silver.
I think some clarification is in order with this report.
When I visited the Gunpowder Falls State Park with Jenny, the original
footprint she had found was no longer there, having been washed away
by the river. I never got to view the original footprint. We hiked around
the park, using the trails, and coming down one hill found some deer
leg bones on the edge of the trail. (I have a photo of them.) Saying
that they were "placed" there is stretching things a bit,
and implies that someone left them there for us to find. I seriously
doubt this was the case. We found some deer bones, nothing more, with
no Bigfoot related signs nearby. Unfortunately, Jenny photos didn't
come out. They are out of focus. While I'm open minded to the possibility
that there may indeed be a Bigfoot roaming though the Gunpowder area,
I've personally yet to see any compelling evidence. Jenny is sincere,
however, and I'm hopeful that her continued investigations in the area
will unearth some hard evidence.
