Whitehall, New York: Chainsaw Bigfoot, Sasquatch Sightings Area

Chainsaw carved from a tree stump, which makes this a somewhat skinny Bigfoot. Resembles a sad-faced, very hairy man with claws. Whitehall has been a hotbed of Sasquatch sightings since 1976, and passed a law in 2004 making it a crime to shoot at Bigfoot.

Skenesborough Drive, Whitehall, NY
From US Hwy 4/Poultney St., just east of its intersection with Hwy 22/Broadway St. and just west of the canal bridge, turn north onto Skenesborough Drive. Drive a quarter-mile. On the right you'll see parking spaces and a building with a green roof; the Bigfoot is next to it.
