In a strange story out of Ohio, police responded to a report of gunshots being fired and found a man claiming that he had just fended off a Bigfoot trying to break into his home. The bizarre incident reportedly occurred last month in the community of Bainbridge Township when a resident called the cops at around 4:30 in the morning to express concern about someone shooting a gun in their neighborhood. Officers investigating the worrisome call soon located the individual behind the commotion and learned that he had a rather fantastic reason for firing his weapon.
According to authorities, the man told police that a seven-foot-tall creature, which was either a Bigfoot or a bear, had been trying to get into his house by way of the front door in order to abduct his dogs. Wanting to protect his precious pets, the unsettled witness said that he fired some warning shots to drive the 'monster' away. It would seem that the tactic worked as cops subsequently searched the area and found no signs of Sasquatch nor any other animal.
Adding an odd layer to an already weird story, the man also revealed that this same creature consistently stops by his home every evening at around 8 PM. Unfortunately, he did not explain how, if this is true, he still does not know if it is a Bigfoot or a bear. And, while one might assume that the circumstances of the case would indicate that the homeowner may have been 'under the influence,' police say that the man was actually not intoxicated at the time.
Fortunately, he did not get into any trouble for his ill-advised warning shots and was merely told to call the police station should the menacing creature return. Considering that it's been a few weeks since the incident took place and there's been no news of a Bigfoot being captured or shot in Ohio, perhaps the early-morning gunfire put an end to those nightly visits from the 'monster.' This recent case is remarkably similar to another incident earlier this year in which campers at a national park in Kentucky reported a man shooting his gun after what was believed to have been a Sasquatch sighting.
