Wisconsin Has Sasquatch

Wisconsin is not just pasture land and cows and Milwaukee. There are rivers and lakes and forested land. And there are sasquatch.

In 1964, a man driving down State Highway 89, reported seeing a sasquatch run across the highway in front of him. This happened shortly after midnight and was near the Illinois border. When the sasquatch crossed in front of him, it jumped the fences on either side of the highway.
About 15 people claimed to see a hairy, white "monster" in August of 1970. The Telegraph Herald reported:

". . . a white-furred, apelike 300-pound creature about seven feet tall with claws and pink eyes has established a lair near here. (Benton, Wisconsin) He -- almost everyone agrees it's a male -- has been around about three weeks."

Ivan Sanderson and Dr. Bernard Heuvelmans interviewed several men after they reported an encounter while on a hunting trip. A group of 12 men saw a strange creature while on a deer drive in the Deltox Marsh near Fremont.

On November 30, 1968, while the men were going through the swamp, the creature stepped out in front of the left end of the line. Word was passed along the line and the men then tried to circle around the creature, to approach near enough to see what it was. Some of the men got pretty close before it managed to disappear in some woodland.

Ivan Sanderson made a composite of the creature after talking to 6 of the men:
"The composite description of the creature that emerged was that of a large and powerfully built man covered with short, very dark brown or black hair and with a lighter and hairless face and hairless palms. The head appeared smallish, also with short hair, but the neck appeared to be enormous and so short as to be almost non-existent."

He went on the say that the shoulders were very wide and large; the torso barrel-shaped. The men could not really describe the legs as they were hidden by three to four-foot-high grasses. They seemed to recall that the grass did not reach the creature's crotch and so decided that the legs were maybe as long as a tall man's. They all agreed that the arms of the beast were exceptionally long for a man.

It did not appear to be afraid of the men; it openly watched the men and even moved towards them when they backed away but it kept a distance from them. It walked similar to a man but was slightly bent forward. The men added in the interview that this creature had been seen twice previously that fall; once in Deltox March and once in Lebanon Swamp. It also was seen the night after encountering the hunting party, on a nearby road.

Everyone agreed that no man would have been brave (or stupid) enough to masquerade around in a fur suit during hunting season. It would have been suicidal. But yet, not one hunter seems to have fired a shot at the creature.

1976 saw some action in Cashton, Wisconsin. In October the newspaper reported that "an unidentified creature is stirring interest in the Cashton area". An unnamed farmer saw a 7 ft, upright creature covered with dark hair in August. The creature also had a very strong smell. In November, the newspaper carried a follow-up story that mentioned that four 18-inch footprints, 7 inches wide, with only four toes, were found by three people walking in the woods late in October.


"I'll spark the thought; what you do with it is up to you."
"Those that know, need no further proof. Those that don't, should not demand it from others, but seek it for themselves."
