    Fresh Bigfoot mystery as police admit they are baffled by giant decomposed foot found in Massachusetts wood

    · Giant decomposed foot discovered in woodland in Massachusetts, U.S.
    · Baffled local police sent the remains to a medical examiner for testing

    It sounds like the plot of a childhood adventure movie.
    Two young boys stumble across a giant, decomposing foot in the woods, leaving local police to wonder whether the grisly find is evidence of the fabled Bigfoot.
    But that's exactly what has happened in Massachusetts, U.S., where tests are being carried out on the mysterious remains amid speculation over exactly what kind of creature it belonged to.

    Bigfoot? The giant decomposing foot was discovered by two young boys in woodland in Massachusetts, U.S.
    According to a report on Discovery.com, the boys found the decomposing foot in woods in Quincy last month.

    Baffled officers at the Lakeville Police Department sent the foot to medical examiners to see if they can shed any more light on its origin.

    'On March 29, Sgt Steven Leanues picked up what appears to be a decomposed foot that the boys found in the woods off Pantheon Road,' it said, citing the Patriot Ledger newspaper.
    'Police Chief Frank Alvihiera sent it to the medical examiner, who determined it is not human, although it appears to have five toes.'

    Scene of the find: The woodland where the rotting foot was found
    Also known as Sasquatch, Bigfoot is the name given to the hairy, ape-like creature that some believe live in forests in North America.
    Sightings of the beast have been reported over decades by people who have pointed variously to mysterious sightings, inexplicably huge footprints, and giant nest-like structures as evidence that the elusive creature does in fact exist.
    Believers who claim to have spotted the legendary creature - which was immortalised in the 1987 film Bigfoot and the Hendersons - say it stands between 6ft and 10ft tall, is covered in reddish brown fur, and has a distinctive, unpleasant odour.
    While fans are likely to seize upon the find as further proof of the beast's existence, sceptics might predict the tests will reveal the foot belonged not to Bigfoot, but to a big bear.

    How big? There's no way that a large bear lived in Quincy, but a hunter may have dumped the remains there after butchering a bear kill.

    Just a teensy bit more research from this "journalist" would have netted the actual name of the movie to be "Harry and the Hendersons".
    Just watched it again a few days ago.

    They also would have looked into it where it was actually found. Quincy or Lakeville, MA?

    I want to know which town I need to set trail cams to get grainy bigfoot "footage" (nice pun in there) and make millions selling it to supermarket tabloids.

    Ya know, I will admit, I did think of how that would be grilled with barbeque sauce. I guess it had a tasty rib-like look to it.

    one footed sasquatch is much slower, and therefore easier to catch than 2 footed squatch.....I headed out with my "have-a-heart" trap.....gonna finally land me a squatch...back away...make room for the professionals folks.

    Sasquatch has always only had one foot. Or it would have been called Bigfeet.

    About 1976, there was a local "Bigfoot" sighting in Essex, a 'burb of Baltimore County. Someone reported that a large, hairy and rather stinky creature on two legs was banging around and rummaging through the trashcans behind a local bar. I demanded to know what my husband was doing around a bar. He replied that he was just trying to get a decent meal. Touche.
