The Rising Sun Bigfoot Sighting of 1969
On May 19, 1969, George Kaiser saw a strange hair-covered creature on his farmland from just 25 feet away. This was the first sighting of a bigfoot-like creature near the small town of Rising Sun, Indiana, but it wouldn't be the last.
"The southern Indiana town of Rising Sun sits along the banks of the Ohio River, where strange creatures seem to be almost commonplace. The Rising Sun Bigfoot was first seen on May 19, 1969 by a man named George Kaiser. Kaiser was walking on his farmland when he saw the strange creature about 25 feet away.
The Rising Sun Bigfoot was standing upright slightly bending at the waist. Kaiser estimated the creature to be about 5 feet 8 inches tall with a muscular build, long arms and covered with black fur. Kaiser was able to watch the beast for several minutes before the Bigfoot turned, jumped over a ditch and disappeared into a wooded area. The Bigfoot did leave behind tracks however and casts were made, they showed three toes and a large big toe that stuck out like a thumb."
