Bigfoot, or Sasquatch, is one of North America’s most enduring legends. The scientific community largely dismisses the idea of a large, unknown ape-like creature sauntering through the forests because there’s never been any hard evidence that such an animal exists.
Nonetheless, there have been thousands of reported eyewitness accounts over the last half century from people all over the U.S. and Canada. Here are some of the most famous Bigfoot sightings.
One of the most famous Bigfoot sightings allegedly occurred on Mica Mountain in British Columbia in 1955, when a man called William Roe claimed he saw a “partly human and partly animal” creature while hiking. He swore an affidavit in 1957 that the creature was about 6 feet (1.8 meters) tall and covered in brown silver-tipped hair, with thick arms reaching down to its knees, broad feet and breasts, according to the Alberta Sasquatch Organization (opens in new tab) website.
