On 04/27/2014, the 3 primary investigators returned to the Trimble County habitation area to continue our investigation. Thomas Shay and Rodney Adams lead investigators, and Bob “Wolfman” Bratcher biologist and science writer of the Northern Kentucky Bigfoot Research Group of Trimble County Kentucky made up the investigators meeting at 12PM. Prior to continuing our habituation study, the team returned to site of the 21 inch prints found by Thomas Shay and cast by both he and Bob. The researchers wanted to share this important and exciting find with team mate Rodney Adams. The team found newer prints in the area, additional 21 inch prints and 14-15 inch prints actually in and alone a spring fed pond that we believe the Bigfoots are using as a watering hole as it has constant fresh water inflow. Plus new paths and foliage breaks were noted throughout the area and in a bedding area that has a possible constructed wind break. This is believed to possibly be a mating pair as no young juvenile prints have been seen is some time in the area, and the smallest observed adolescent now stands 7 feet tall. No new prints were cast as the pond ones had filled back in with mud leaving only outlines visible.
The team found some new activity in the habituation area from the previous investigation. New tree formations were seen as well as new tree breaks. The new baiting technique of a bag of apples suspended above the trail still remains untouched but there was an unusual find with the rock structure. The rock structure had a deer skull place on it by the team previously, now had the same skull set beside the stone pile but a stone had been cemented into the skull by what looked to be mud or more likely feces, a sample was collected but hair was found in the material making the team lean toward fecal matter. The trail camera that was left in the locus tree had been removed and could not be found, this is the approximate seventh camera the team has lost. A new camera was placed high in a tree and out of sight but still facing a newly placed jar of peanut butter that was left by the skull and stones.
While searching the habituation site the team heard multiple tree knocks coming from one ridge and stone clacks coming from opposite ridges. A series of deep growls, huffs and a single scream was also heard prior to a new phenomena. While the team was readying to leave we heard the sound of a deer as what can only be described as screaming as it was seemingly attacked by a large predator. The sounds were horrific and lasted for a few seconds before going silent. The team suspects a Sasquatch caught a young deer or doe with the characteristic hind leg technique we have seen with other deer and the recent calf, injuring the animal causing the screams before it was finally killed by the predator,
Videos will be posting soon and a return expedition is scheduled in two weeks with expanded overnight research still in the planning at two locations likely in May. The team is also giving presentations at the regional libraries in Trimble county and Madison Indiana in June, more to come on these presentations soon but we welcome your participation and change to meet the team and hear us speak on everybody’s favorite subject of Bigfoot.
Thanks for your interest and support
