IN Parke July 2, 2001 #00004

A respondent from Parke County in west-central Indiana provided a report of a similar creature description to a Sasquatch which was witnessed from twenty feet away, while traveling on a country road, north of Brazil, IN on July 2, 2001. “It was not a bear nor was it an ape. I do not believe it was a man in any kind of suit,” the man indicated. Researching the subject, he discovered that many similar sighting reports have come out of the Parke County area since the 1940s. The man further indicated that a local panic ensued in the mid-1970s after a number of sightings, prompting area citizens to carry firearms and guard their kids at school bus stops.
