Bigfoot spotters in New Jersey are reporting their own version of Sasquatch in ever-increasing numbers. Called "Big Red Eye" by locals, the sightings started in the 1970s and have been getting a little more attention lately, possibly due to the popularity of television shows heating up the subject.
But New Jersey is no stranger to mysterious creatures stalking the extensive, and still somewhat remote, forests of the state. Their NHL team gets their name from the most pervasive legend, the New Jersey Devil. So this new Bigfoot legend is a relative newcomer.
But it doesn't mean there aren't ardent believers. "Big Red Eye" is being stalked itself with trackers who now have an impressive array of surveillance equipment which opens up the nighttime option of having their wits scared out of them. And worse.
It stills leaves time for a little philosophical reflection. As Bigfoot Research Organization tracker Mike Arragona puts it, "We have all this technology. We put a man on the moon. We have satellites. We have all these different things, but here's a creature that could be living right under our noses that has mastered something we have long lost: how to survive in the woods."
So it looks like New Jersey is an up-and-comer as a new hotspot for Bigfoot sightings. But if they ever actually find one, don't be too surprised if this one sports a bouffant hairstyle, drinks until its tipsy and is addicted to spray-on tans!
