Thanks to the Ohio Night Stalkers, who presented a program about “Bigfoot in Ohio” at the West Union Library in September. Over 70 people attended the popular event to hear the Night Stalkers share their experiences tracking Bigfoot, hear an audio recording made near Lynx in Adams County, see foot print castings, and more. Many at the event shared their own Bigfoot experiences with sounds, footprints, and sightings. If you missed this event, plan to join us when the Ohio Night Stalkers make an encore presentation at the Peebles Library on Saturday, Nov. 14.
