Does Bigfoot live in Ohio? Find out at Porter Library!

Is Bigfoot real or a hoax? Does Bigfoot live in Ohio? What does the evidence say? Ohio Bigfoot Association President Marc DeWerth will discuss these questions and the findings of Bigfoot hunters at “Buckeye Bigfoot,” on Wednesday, Oct. 29, from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at Westlake Porter Public Library.

DeWerth has been researching Bigfoot, also known as Sasquatch, since an encounter in Coshocton County in 1997. In addition to involvement in the Ohio Bigfoot Association, he organizes the annual Ohio Bigfoot Conference.

Bigfoot is the name given to a large, hairy ape or hominid-like creature that some people believe inhabit forests in North America. Legends of this creature date back to early Native Americans, who called the creature Sasquatch. The name Bigfoot comes from the large foot imprints purported to have been made by it.
