Bigfoot in Michigan?!

A bunch of trees snapped in two along a trail at Bay County's Tobico Marsh has some wondering if it's the handiwork of a bigfoot.

Last month, about a quarter mile from a parking lot for marsh visitors, Conley and friend Charles Robinson of Sanford say they found a group of 15-20 live poplar and oak trees that had recently been snapped off at a height of 2-10 feet.

Mike Evanoff, supervisor for the Bay City State Recreation Area in Bangor Township, which includes the marsh, said he doesn't know what could have caused the tree breaks.

Locals commented that it's common to see dead trees that have fallen down in the area, but these trees appeared to be alive and well. As of yet there is still no explaination to why the trees snapped

Stories of mysterious tree breaks blamed on bigfoot are abundant on the Internet, and have been reported in numerous states. Bigfoot is purported to inhabit remote forests in the Pacific Northwest and Canada, but sightings have been reported in Michigan and even Bay City, according to a Web site for the Michigan Bigfoot Information Center.
