Bigfoot In The Adirondacks?
By Diane Rutherford
Check out YouTube and you'll find plenty of video showing what some believe is Bigfoot. There's even this clip - said to be a Sasquatch roaming through the Old Forge area in the Adirondacks. A Utica man, who likes to be called Adirondack Jack Leach, is a believer. He claims to have seen Bigfoot several times while hunting and fishing in the Adirondacks."They're about 7 to 7 1/2 feet tall. Their approximate weight is 700 to 750 pounds. They've got big, long arms, a hump back, ape-like gorilla head and face," said Leach. Reported sightings of Bigfoot are nothing new in the north country. There's this really fun website by the Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization - it has a state-by-state, county-by-county list of sightings.
