The first Bigfoot sighting occurred in the early 1960s. Since then there have been countless Bigfoot sightings, movies, books, museums and tourist attractions based on the creature. The majority of the sightings have been reported in the Pacific Northwest, but two reports were made here in Southeast Minnesota. 

Don't freak out - it's been awhile since the last report. (and Bigfoot isn't real)

The Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization  - yes that's a thing - is online at and says both sightings happened near Spring Valley.

The first was in May of 2002 -  A family was on a camping trip when the son noticed a figure sitting near the campsite that looked like campsite. Read more about this sighting here.

The second happened in October of 2005. This report was filed by a hunter who saw something out of the corner of his eye and described it as ” the biggest turkey he had ever seen.” Click here for more.
