Another White Bigfoot Sighting Reported in Maine

What is it about Maine that seems to attract white Bigfoots, or at least reported sighting of them? Are they fans of lobsters and whale watching?

Recently in Eddington, Maine, a boy (name not given) told Bill Brock and AJ Marston, members of the cryptid research organization Team Rogue, that he saw a big white creature running into the woods near his family’s home.

I was walking and then…I hear something run over there. I look up and then there is something big, white and it runs right into the woods…and it’s just gone.

The boy’s family didn’t see the creature but reported finding a deer leg that “had just been ripped off, and was just sitting there.” Brock and Marston say they found footprints and used a tree the boy saw it standing near to estimate the unpigmented cryptid was about eight feet tall.

This is at least the second white Bigfoot sighting in Maine in a year. A man walking his dog on Christmas reported seeing one in Litchfield. Another white Bigfoot was reported in nearby Shaftsbury, Vermont, in January 2014.

The double anomaly of a white or albino Bigfoot is rare and most of the U.S. reported sightings are in the northeast. Maine has a history of Bigfoot sightings dating back to the 1800s. Could it be because the state has so many apples? That’s one of Marston’s theories.

Apples have some key role for nutrition, when it comes to looking for cryptids, because out of the majority of the stories I’ve read, you can find apples as indigenous fruit that were there…in the Himalayas, the Ukraine, in China, all through the northeast and even up in the Oregon areas and Alaska, they all have apples, so it’s something that holds a lot of vitamins and nutrition, and sugars that a large animal would need regularly. Back there I found a bunch of apple trees that had been overgrown by other bushes, but you could still see the remnants of the crab apples, which is a good source for deer, and moose and bear, and the cryptids around them.

Don’t forget Pennsylvania where the aptly named Albatwitch not only eats them but steals them before flinging the apples back at its victims.

White, brown, green, plaid … I’m not prejudiced. I’d just like to see some better pictures.
