Jun, 2013

About 200 Bigfoot-like footprints have been reportedly discovered near Kampung Kepis Baru, Kuala Pilah, Malaysia, causing panic among villagers.

According to Harian Metro reports, a villager named Adnan Pungut, has claimed that he discovered the footprints when he was clearing rubbish and wood at his rubber estate at around 3pm on Saturday.
Pungut said that he immediately informed other villagers and they found 200 footprints that were about the same size, Star online reported.

Based on the footprints, they assumed that the creature has two legs and weighs more than 100kg, he added.

Liew Tze Chong, 58, villagers of Kg Gudang Garam found giant  footprints measuring 30cm long and 15cm wide each. He discovered the footprints when he went to his farm at 8.30am.

The Johor Malaysian Nature Society (MNS), when contacted by Berita Harian reporter, did not rule out the possibility that the footprints could be that of Bigfoot's.

MNS chairman Vincent Chow said although he had yet to examine the footprints, he believed the creature exists as previously reported.

"Based on my extensive research, there is evidence to show that Bigfoot is not a myth.

"I would like to work with the local community on this so that we can conduct a more in-depth study on Bigfoot," he added.

Meanwhile, Segamat district police chief Supt Mohd Kamil Sukarmi said he has yet to receive any report on the discovery of the footprint.

In 2005, when the New Straits Times broke the story of a large footprint found in the Endau Rompin National Park, it drew an entourage of foreign journalists and researchers to Johor.

Many villagers, including the Orang Asli community reportedly claimed they had spotted the creature whom they called "Hantu Jarang Gigi"  in the national park and the forests of Tanjung Piai, Mersing, Kahang and Kota Tinggi. Some even claimed they saw the Bigfoot family.

Some members of the local community reportedly made a lucrative income from taking the foreigners into the jungles, and acting as their trekking guides.
