Footprints on property caused a man to panic and think it was Malaysia’s Bigfoot.
The Department of Wildlife and National Parks (PERHILITAN) has poured cold water on bizarre claims by villagers that they found footprints belonging to a Bigfoot in Kampung Gudang Garam, Segamat.
“Investigations revealed that the footprints in question was that of a tapir’s. We believe it wandered into the area after getting lost. A villager here also said he saw what looked like a tapir moving through his farm a day ago.
“Therefore, PERHILITAN would like to request the public not to panic and make any assumptions relating to the discovery of this ‘footprint’,” said the spokesperson.
Quite a difference.
The man seemed panicked. Why he jumped to the Bigfoot conclusion is not clear. Is it going around in the culture? Are there other reports? Well, Malaysia has it’s own version of Bigfoot called the Orang Lenggor, and his footprints are well known. See this piece from last June.
The world has gone Bigfoot crazy. Every track is Bigfoot. Take a look at this video which is CLEARLY tracks of a bounding whitetail deer. Nope, Bigfoot.
Actually this was a joke, but one idiotic Bigfoot blog took it seriously.
