Since 1976, the FBI has had a file on Bigfoot. Is the creature real or are they wasting their time? Honestly, I don't think they're spending too much time looking for a hairy beast in the woods, but each year people report seeing Sasquatch.

Do you believe there is a bigfoot out there?  Bigfoot has actually been spotted several times, all over Minnesota. You can read two of the newest stories and see the Minnesota counties that have reported the most sightings at the bottom of this story.

Is Bigfoot Living in Northern Minnesota?

Ultimate Unexplained just shared a story about a sighting in northern Minnesota that was reported to the Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization in 2020.

The person, a home health care nurse, claimed the beast she saw 5-miles west of Ely was "about six to six-feet five-inches tall and was walking on two legs like a human."

Another Bigfoot Sighting in Northern Minnesota?

Last month a story came out about a sighting that occurred about 35-miles west of Duluth. This sighting apparently happened in the mid-70s. "The man was 'taking a sauna' when he was cooling off outside of it and sitting naked. He claims an eerie feeling came over him that someone was looking at him. He looked over and saw something staring at him. He thought it was his brother at first, then realized it could be something else."
