Bigfoot Raids Peach Groves

    CLANTON, Ala. -- Whether you're a believer or not, the legend of Bigfoot is alive and well in Chilton County.
    For decades people there have been talking about the strange creature that apparently has an affinity for the local peach crop.
    In the 1960s, some strange footprints were found in a Chilton County peach grove. Now the original investigator reminisces about the time he spent tracking Bigfoot.
    "In our opinion it was definitely not a fake. It was a real track," said James Earl Johnson, the former Chilton County investigator, whose case sparked a legend back in the 1960s.
    "We checked the peach orchard, and there was a trail leading out of the peach orchard, and it was tracks -- strange looking tracks, similar to a human but bigger and wider," said Johnson.
    With nothing but a print to go on, picking a name for the elusive creature wasn't very hard. Since then, Bigfoot sightings have been reported across the country, and sketches of the creature vary depending on where the sighting occurred. The name varies as well. In Alabama, the creature is known as Bigfoot, while in northern areas, it's known as a Sasquatch.
    "Supposedly, the legend is that a hairy man-like creature that walks on two legs at some point inhabited the bottomland swamp regions in Chilton County in Clanton, Ala.," said Bryan Wyatt, a Bigfoot researcher.
    "I know one thing: (Bigfoot) likes Chilton County peaches," said Johnson.

    Forty years and they still can't track one down. And this is in Alabama! You would think they would know how to hunt better than just about anyone in the country.

    Allegedly. From what I understand the man who's now claiming he dressed up as bigfoot for Patterson is quite convinced there's money to be made.

    Yes but you're the Right BigFoot, we still need a Left BigFoot.

    I am making a command decision and declaring Jim Beam our Left Bigfoot. I don't mean to overstep my powers but I feel compelled to take this action.

    What size are the apes feet to be called bigfoot? I'm sure there has to be some other distinguishing characteristic than his big feet. I mean, I have size 14 feet but no ones running around calling me bigfoot. geez.

    It is so frickin' slippery of you to exploit the liguistic convention whereby bigfoot is refered to in the singular instead of as "bigfeet". Are you the illegitimate offspring of Werner Heisenberg?
