Many people believe that the creatures called Bigfoot, Sasquatch, Skunk Ape, MoMo, Grassman, Oh-Mah, etc. live in the wilds of North America. Some say that these creatures aren't real. Others think they are remnants of Gigantopithecus that came to North America on the land bridge connecting it to Asia a few thousand years ago. Some Native Americans, however, think the Bigfoot creatures are something spiritual. But, starting in the '60s and '70s, a new aspect of the Bigfoot phenomenon appeared, and that was the connection to UFOs.
The general public had known about Bigfoot for about 16 years. It was 1973, and residents of Pennsylvania started reporting strange encounters with large, hairy, man-like creatures. At the same time, there were tons of reports of strange objects and lights being seen in the sky. The great Bigfoot/UFO flap of 1973 had begun.
The reports had actually begun a year before in 1972. At the time several people had reported seeing UFOs, and others reported seeing mysterious ape-like beings. That fall, some people near Latrobe, Pennsylvania, saw a black haired, chimpanzee-like animal on two legs climb over a guard rail. Later, other residents saw what they thought was a gorilla. A family reported hearing strange sounds outside one night, and the next day they found a strange footprint.

Later Stan asked Steve if he wanted to be hypnotized to see if it could make him remember more about that night. When he did, Steve asked why they wanted to hypnotize him again, but they never had. Steve said he was visited by two men who had hypnotized him and shown him pictures of UFOs and Bigfoot creatures like the ones he had seen. Many think those men were MIB.

UFOs and Bigfoot?
Are these instances proof that Bigfoot and UFOs are related? There were many, many, many other sightings in Pennsylvania in 1973 and 1974 and there have been other UFO-Bigfoot instances elsewhere. There have even been some reports of Dogmen being seen with UFOs.
Now, reader, what do you think? Are Bigfoot and UFOs connected in some way, or are they two totally separate things? Why would Men In Black come after a sighting of a UFO and two Bigfoots? Maybe the answer is hiding somewhere out in the woods, or out in the stars.
