Shawnee National Forest

Scavenging Shawnee Bigfoot???
A Frightening Sighting In Southern Illinois
By Dorraine Fisher

Are sasquatches scavengers? It would be reasonable to believe they’re food opportunists like any ace predator would be to survive. But witnesses of this act are pretty much non-existent.

    Shawnee National Forest in Illinois is an interesting place for bigfoot sightings, but still largely neglected by mainstream researchers. Maybe there’s no buzz there because people there who’ve seen them stay silent for fear of ridicule. That’s why Ange Dixon only told a select few people about her encounter there near her home in Makanda, Illinois where she saw a sasquatch scavenging road kill from the highway one winter night. At least she stayed silent until now.  This is what she had to say:

“It was in February, 2001,  about 2 AM, my husband and daughter and myself was driving home from his brother’s.  We lived in Union County, Illinois.  It was down a back road, not well traveled back then. But still in Shawnee National [Forest]. It had snowed a little, so I was going slower than normal.  I had noticed up ahead what I thought was mailbox reflectors.  They were huge and red/yellow.  The closer I got, I realized it was an animal in the middle of road.  Our first thought was it was a cougar because it was huge. My lights were hitting it of course. As I drove closer to it,  about 25 feet away, we noticed it actually was crouched down and had road kill in its “hand.”  “ It was focusing on what was in the road more than [it was] us, because he was not scared of us.”

“By this time, we were totally stopped in the car. It just stood up, and it was freaking huge!  You could see muscle ripples.  It stood over 8 feet [tall], total black.  All I could really focus on was those eyes.  He stood there for a good 10 seconds just staring at us before he leaped from middle of road to the woods.  It was so fast and unrealistic that I thought it flew off.”

“We didn’t move the car for about another minute and my daughter was like,  “Mommy was that a bigfoot?”  And I was still in shock and didn’t know what to say because I wasn’t sure what we had just experienced.  If it wanted,  it could have ripped us out of the car.  We were that close!”

Later, Ange described what she felt that night and what happened afterward.

“People laugh at me when I tell them the story, but how could three people imagine the same thing?  It wasn’t a bear, cougar, or deer.  It was a bigfoot.”
 And when I asked her what her impression of the creature was, she told me this:

  “I personally didn’t see ape- like features.  I don’t believe they are ape. I know people say they are ape –like. But what I saw and experienced was no ape.  It was a creature of other sorts. You could tell it had intelligence. It was not animal. It was a humanoid- like intelligent being.”

And how does Ange feel about the encounter now?
“I travel that road all the time and to this day I get scared at night,” she told me.  Those eyes were red/orange and glowed. Those eyes were so freaking scary looking.  Seriously scary!”

We talked about other sightings and how so many are possibly not reported because people write off the encounters as crazy.  But Ange told me she has decided to own up to what she and her family saw that night, and she laughed.
“I know what I saw, and damn it, I'm not crazy!”
