In the past few days, pictures that were leaked in Northern California have been causing quite the stir. A paranormal investigator claimed that he knew about the legendary "Bigfoot" in the area.
Fox News reported that the creature was spotted near a lake in Northern California. Jeffrey Gonzalez is a self-described paranormal expert, who said that he heard about the most recent sighting from a local farmer.
Gonzalez said that the farmer saw "Bigfoot" and four or five other creatures running on his ranch, near Avocado Lake.
Gonzalez said, "One of them, which was extremely tall, had a pig over its shoulder. And the five scattered and the one with the pig was running so fast it didn’t see an irrigation pipe and it tripped, with the pig flying over."
On his Facebook page, Gonzalez says that he is a technician at AT&T but works as an investigator on the side. He is a talk show host and investigator at Paranormal Central and founded the Sanger Paranormal Society.
He said that this is the fourth Bigfoot sighting in the last five years. Each time, the creature was spotted in East Fresno County.
He said, "I would have never guessed in a million years that you would have told me there were Bigfoot on Shields or Ashlan Avenue. Right? So, I want to know what’s going on. Is this for real?”
Gonzalez posted the following photos to show the Bigfoot sightings. They have since gone viral.
The "investigator" said that a few years ago, one woman had said that her two sons saw Bigfoot in their orchard. Shortly after, another man saw five creatures in the same orchard.
He said, "What are the odds of three people, three different families, who don’t know each other, within a radius of 2 to 3 miles, come and tell me what they witness, and it matches up."
According to a Fox affiliate, Gonzalez went on a Bigfoot expedition a few years ago. He said that he came back to his truck and found footprints near his car. After the prints were tested, a local DNA expert said they matched up with prints of a gorilla.
Gonzalez said, "I believe there are a lot more people out there who have seen things and are keeping it inside themselves. They don’t want to go out and tell people, they don’t want to be ridiculed. They don’t want to be made fun of."
