Bigfoot beasts migrate south from Scotland every winter, claims the UK’s leading wildman expert.
Deborah Hatswell has studied Britain’s bigfoot sightings for decades since allegedly coming face to face with one as a teenager.
Listening to first-hand witness reports nationwide has allowed Deborah to not only create a map of curious sightings but also spot patterns in statements.
After years of dedicated research, Deborah now believes she has collected enough evidence to suggest the elusive beings annually escape the Scottish winter freeze.
Deborah said: “If you start to plot the sightings on the map like I did, I was trying to find out if there was a migratory pattern with the seasons changing, they tend to follow the mountain ranges and as you get further towards Scotland there’s an area called Northumberland at it lies right on the border with Scotland and it’s got an ideal habitat.
“We have almost route plotted they follow the mountains, the rivers and the mountains and I think they cross the border.”
As the giant ape-like men are understood to forage for a living, Deborah expects the food availability is the main reason for their migration.
She continued: “This is only a personal theory of mine but in the UK food comes into, from the north of the UK to the south, the weather’s very, very different so down south it’s much warmer, you have a better climate and food, edible food, foraging food comes into season much earlier and then that travels up the country and Scotland is one of the last places where things come into ripen and I’m almost of the opinion that they are following the food because they seem to follow these distinct migratory routes.
“And all these years on I know that in the early months of the year, January, February, we get any activity in the woodlands or any new reports - that’s where they come from and that kind of followed a pattern.”
The wilderness of Scotland makes it an ideal home for the so-called Bigfoot to reside during the summer, Deborah told William Jevning on his Creek Devil podcast.
But sightings are down this year, she believes to be due to the Covid-19 still keeping many Brits indoors.
That did not stop one chilling report in Scotland this year finding its way to the keen researcher.
Deborah added: “This year it’s different and I think that’s due to the lockdown and there’s not as many people out there but we have had reports, we’ve three recent reports while the lockdown’s been and one of those was in Scotland because it’s such a vast area.
“The gentlemen there his is the only house for acres and acres and acres and the only thing he’s got behind him is a mountain range and a number of lochs so it’s an ideal habitat.
“He said as it was walking away, he couldn’t put a name to it, it was about eight feet tall it was very broad access the shoulders, very slim at the hips, had long arms that came down to his side and it walked away from him and didn’t look back.
“He didn’t turn and look back until he was quite far away from him and then it did.
“And he said at that point he just kind of turned his body and looked back at him, he said 'As if to let me know that it had seen me'.”
