From the Sasquatch Observation team on Facebook: There is a history of "Skunk Ape" or sasquatch sightings in the Myakka Swamp region of Florida. On June 1, 2018, another sighting was added to the growing list.
Subtropical storm Alberto had passed through the gulf coast of Florida, leaving the Myakka River at flood stage, overflowing into the wetlands and low-lying areas.
The witness was on 73rd Ave. E., a private dirt road, passenger in a vehicle being driven by her husband. Due to the recent storms, there had been little traffic down this road, which was also still partly flooded. It was when they reached Long Creek that she noticed something behind the fence. At first she thought it was a pile of dark soggy grass and moss in an odd shape. Then she suddenly realized that this was some kind of creature, standing still, trying not to be noticed.
Finding her voice, she blurted out to her husband "Honey, I just saw a Sasquatch by the side of the road. . . " Realizing that his wife had seen something that had startled her, he turned the vehicle around at her urging and drove back to where she had seen it. The figure no longer stood behind the fence. He stopped the car and they got out to look around. They found what they believed to be two footprints of the sasquatch about 50 feet from the original sighting. She unfortunately stepped on one print before they realized what it was. The footprints seemed to indicate that the sasquatch retreated to the tree line after the vehicle went by.
The figure had been standing behind the fence, which was later measured at 5 foot high. The sasquatch stood about three feet taller. The witness said it appeared to be a dark ash brown. The hair was maybe 3 to 4 inches long, wet and matted, causing her to mistake it for grasses at first. She was unable to see any facial features but did recall the head was pointed and the figure had massive shoulders.
The area consists of a creek bottom with heavy foliage, wet and swampy. Nearby was a potato field with rotting potatoes and a field of watermelons. Stay Squatchy Yinzers! #bigfoot #cryptid #bigfootattack #grassman #orangpendek #bigfootstories #sasquatch #sasquatchfacts
