You're a nice family driving through the outskirts of Detroit, shopping for a new house. What you don't expect to see on your real estate tour: a "strange, ape-like creature" climbing out of the window of an abandoned home.
A man named C. Brown told Cryptozoology News that he, his wife and two children spent three hours in the car last Thursday, searching for a new neighborhood to move to in Detroit. Not finding anything suitable, they decided to turn around and head home. Passing by a two-story blue home with broken windows, Brown's wife saw something moving inside. They slowed the vehicle to get a better look.
From Cryptozoology News, where you can read the full story of The Browns' sighting:
"We see this hairy arm reaching out the window. I say what the hell, he gonna get cut that dude with the broken glass, man. Then a whole body coming out the window, looked like a monkey, only big damn monkey with a stick on the hand. Maybe about 7-ft tall. It had short, reddish hair. But hold on, the face was human looking, as crazy as it sounds. My wife kept telling me to drive away, so we did. I got to see the animal’s eyes and all, big and dark, with a huge head, like a triangle shape, kinda, know what I mean?"
The mythical creature referred to as Bigfoot or, alternatively, Sasquatch and Yeti, has a history of being spotted in Michigan -- although sightings of the man-sized animal are rare. In 1990, footprints measuring two feet wide and a foot long were spotted in snow covering a vacant lot in the city.
Last month, a man in Midland, Mich. approached authorities with evidence including alleged Bigfoot scat, empty pizza boxes and photos, which he says proves that Bigfoot had been shape-shifting and eating pizza on his property for almost a decade.
The state's much less populated Upper Peninsula has been the location for two recent televised Bigfoot scoutings. On Spike TV's "10 Million Dollar Bigfoot Bounty: 36 Hours Of Hell," which aired last week, two teams staged a 36-hour hunt for the mythical creature in the wilderness near Lake Superior, armed with a baby doll soaked in cow's blood (strange that didn't work out). In January, Animal Planet interviewed people who claim to have spotted the bear-sized animal in cities across the Upper Peninsula.
