When we think of the wild and wooly creature known as Bigfoot, we often picture an upright-walking primate of enormous size gallivanting about in the dense, dank forests of the American Northwest. After all, a sizeable portion of the global sightings of the creature have occurred in this area, including the incident that started it all, captured forever in the infamous Patterson-Gimlin film.
But this week, a peculiar sighting of the elusive beast has taken place in a most peculiar locale, and locals claim to have spotted not only the monster itself, but an enormous pair of tracks as well.
It looks like Bigfoot’s gone on holiday – to Norfolk!
Visitors have reported seeing a “massive beast” on Holkham Beach over the past week.
One sunseeker said he saw a 15ft-tall creature built “like Arnold Schwarzenegger”.
And huge footprints – five times the size of a man’s – were also seen at the beauty spot.
Those footprints made quite a splash…no pun intended.
The creature has an alleged history in the area.
Another local, Graham Yardley, 29, said he had heard of Bigfoot in the area when he was a kid.
He said: “My dad used to tell me stories of a Bigfoot who lives in the pine forests by the beaches.
“He used to say the creature survived on eating sheep and cows – I never believed him until now.”
Bigfoot sightings in England are extremely rare, making the multiple witnesses involved in this case particularly fascinating.
