I will be totally honest, I want to believe that Bigfoot is real. The idea that there's this giant, hairy ape-like creature living among us is something that has fascinated me since I was a little kid. But with no solid proof...it's nothing more than a legend. I mean sightings are cool and all but a sighting isn't proof.

In this day and age, if bigfoot was real, I think we'd have that solid proof by now. However, I really hope that I'm wrong.

If you or someone you know have had a sighting in Michigan, you're asked to report it to the Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization.
