By Staff Writer: Mostly Lauren & Invading "Real" Guest For over 400 years, people have reported sightings of a large, hairy, mannish beast in the wilderness of North America and other global spots. Whether it is real or not remains one of the largest mysteries about possibly mythical creatures that mankind grapples with, as hoaxes have been plentiful, planting doubt into the minds of many. However, a large number of people still believe in Bigfoot: a study taken by The Chapman University Survey on American Fears found that over forty percent of Americans think that Sasquatch - another name for Bigfoot - exists. Two polls taken by NBC and a Public Policy Polling service found that more Americans believe in Bigfoot than Hillary Clinton’s honesty. However, just as there are die-hard believers, there are also skeptics.
First, you should know that Bigfoot goes by many different names. “Bigfoot. Sasquatch. Yeti. Ohio Grassman. Whatever you choose to call it, it really is all the same creature. Very big, hairy and tall, averaging 6 to 8 feet tall. With footprints averaging from 13 to 17 inches long. It has been rumored to live in Ohio since the mid-1700's. It has also been rumored to live in Ohio's largest state park, Salt Fork,” according to the website of Visitors and Convention Bureau website of Cambridge/Guernsey County, which is roughly 100 miles south of Wadsworth. It has been a hotspot for many sightings, the most recent of which occurred about a month ago. Two Ohio men claimed to have spotted the creature taking a stroll through the woods.

The result of the three-year-long study in which they genetically analyzed hair samples associated with Bigfoot ensued much rage and grieving worldwide from fans of the monstrous beast. But, like with every conspiracy, there are still believers. Want to know the history of Sasquatch and the devout followers of the theory surrounding it? Just keep on reading to find out!
