Not much to go on here, so this is more an FYI deal for the members who are interested in these sightings



voices.washingtonpost.com

There's a place in Lake Anna being studied by Big Foot experts, WUSA reports.

Billy Willard runs Sasquatch Watch of Virginia, and says there have been 14 sightings within a five mile radius.

"Back in May 2009, we had three witnesses come forward and report to us they had a sighting of a large creature on two legs and it was hairy," he says.

Sasquatch Sightings Alleged In Spotsylvania County

SPOTSYLVANIA COUNTY, Va. (WUSA) -- There's a place in Lake Anna being studied by Big Foot experts.

Billy Willard runs Sasquatch Watch of Virginia, and says there have been 14 sightings within a five mile radius.

"Back in May 2009, we had three witnesses come forward and report to us they had a sighting of a large creature on two legs and it was hairy," he says.

He says the witnesses are too embarrassed to come forward publicly.

"They have already suffered ridicule from their own family."

I went to the "Sasquatch Watch Of Virginia" forum and happened upon a post in "Sightings" (or something) which featured what seemed to be a post from a little kid: "Me and my brother saw a sasquatch!".

It had some choice moments such as "I wasn't scared because sasquatch won't hurt you!" and "he had a dome on his head!". I now suspect sasquatch is a Devo fan.

TY for the FYI

Every new sighting, or sighting someone lets out, after a few years.
I keep seeing a trend, that I can't overlook any more.

ETA::: trend is water ways, all bigfoot/feet are rarely spotted unless in a lake or creek...
Its my theory that they live 90% + of their lives in water...not near it, but in it, that would make their 400 lb bodies lighter and easier to maintain a cooler body temp.

Yes call me a loon...most do I'm used to it, and have thick skin...really it is ok.

I, afterspending many months in the woods, and talking with many properly edumacated ppls...came to this theory..

Please excuse my comparison....it will make you smile...
But I need to use said comparison, to keep from having a huge explanation..

I now believe, with great personal beliefs that bigfoot is a nocturnal, water animal....wait...here it comes, ready to grin...much like a 400 lb beaver.
Of course minus the teefers and tail...

Now that your grinning, or flat out laughing, give it some thought.
It makes too much sense, it explains why no bodies are found, give credience to being able to cover large distances "if my big butt, can cover 100 miles of river a day" a wild animal can do at least double that.
And would allow for them to migrate, and live near highly populated areas undetected.

But anyways ...before...I ramble on and run out of posting room......
TY for the fyi....

Wish I could figure out a way to prove this.

Not alot of details in this one that's for sure, and those footprints aren't very convincing to my eyes..

That county is only an hour or so from where I live, I'll keep an eye out for this one, maybe if I am lucky I can bribe him with a good home cooked meal in exchange for pulling up a couple of stumps I need to get rid of.

That's an interesting theory, I guess I would have to be labelled a sceptic on this subject, having no personal experiences to draw on, but I do try to keep an open mind on the topic and secretly hope for evidence that's a bit more concrete, someday we may know the answer

Hey JackKat, I live about an hour away too. I have been tracking (and teaching) for 30+ years. If there were any tracks I could at least tell you what they aren''t. I have also done search and rescue tracking and I am familiar with just about kind of mark made in the ground and can tell you who did it and when.
Seriously, if you want to go traipse around and look for evidence I would be happy to tag along. That is, if you knew exactly where to go (where the most recent sighting were).

As for the track it didn't look unnatural, which for me is saying alot. Sad that they only show one footprint and never a series. that would tell me much more than a single print ever could.

Shoot me a U2U if you want to meet up and go check this out, I;ve got the time to do it.

Im from Spotsy as we call it. Today is the first time I have heard of a big foot in the area. I have been fishing Lake Anna for well over 15 years and have never seen anything pointing at a big foot in the area. I was shocked when I heard about this no a local radio show, Elloit In The Morning.

Inside joke for those who don't listen to Elliot.

sorry to go off topic, but as an EITM fan I am required to respond with Smell My Face. Yeah he rocks. Anyone ever hear of a big foot in Virginia? I didn't think we had the environment for him, unless we were talking the mountain region, which is about an hour or two drive from Spotsy.

I have heard of bigfoot spottings in VA, WV, OH and PA. So, yeah, I've heard of them being there.

Also....to the OP. Sorry for the off topic comment.

This story made the front page(under the fold) of the Washington Post Sunday May 30, 2010. I live about 30 minutes from Lake Anna. Pretty cool, but I'm skeptical about this story, this part of Virginia is very wooded, but there are also a lot of roads.


On Sasquatch's trail in Virginia's Spotsylvania County

There was a another guy from Manassas who claimed he saw Sasquatch not far from this area in Culpeper. He started a Bigfoot search organization as well. He worked for the FBI.

Many report seeing Bigfoot in Virginia. One man is trying to prove it

For those outside of VA, Lake Anna is interesting in that it is a bit on the warm side. There is a nuclear plant on the lake and the runoff from the plant mean that triathlon folks tell me that swimming in the lake is not too cold. I'd be interested in feedback if this is correct.

Actually there is a warm and cold side of the lake. Most of the property on the warm side is owned by private residents and the power plant. Swimming is very interesting. The water at various depths can very greatly with the warm water near the surface and gets colder the deeper you go. Fishing Lake Anna is excellent. Any more questions?

That was a quick and well written response. Thanks for the super quick feedback.

I actually fish and swim Lake Anna often. I have to admit that I havent been yet this year. But until recently I have never heard of our big foot problem.

Your theory is not that far-fetched as far as them being some type of aquatic creature , who knows .

But , there have been countless prints found that weren't near water .

I actually watched a program here awhile back that was talking about the relationship with water , although I can't recall the title of the program .

a animal that lived mostly in the water (mammal) (otter)
If it has fur it would be oily and shiny and mostly NOT stink.
Not louse and wave hair dry fly away hair that wont behave bigfoot needs medicated shampoo to help with thous split ends .
soory by all descriptions theres no way this animal could live mostly in the water .
becides the thing Stands on two legs REMBER better be a deep lake

I don't think susquatch is a water mammal. They are often found near water, but I don't think they live in it. They are often very smelly, not a trait of an water animal.
There are series of tracks. Some are hoaxes of course, but others are not. If you are interested in tracks Dr. Jeff Meldrum has written an excellent and scholarly book.
Susquatch also make strange stick structures. Another terrestrail indicator.

I am not familiar with the VA group, but there are several areas near me that aren't far from civilization, but have good possibility for bigfoot.
If the lake is good for fishing, then it may be a food source for them also. Althought debate rages, they seem to be omnivores.
Just because a child saw it and used unconventional language, that doesn't negate the siting.
Good footprints would be better evidence.
