Is Bigfoot Roaming in Frankfort?
Town of Frankfort resident Rita Massman said it all started about five weeks ago, with a sighting of a UFO.
A few days later, Bigfoot appeared.
"When there's a UFO sighting, Bigfoot appears," said Massman. "I didn't see the UFO, but my neighbor did."
first, when Rita Massman's son told her that he had seen Bigfoot
tracks, she didn't believe him. But after the family's chickens began
to disappear from a pen that "only human-like hands could open," Rita
and husband Klaus Massman became believers. They reported it to the
Marathon County Sheriff's Department on July 21.
The Massman's claim that their children have also seen and been chased
by an "8- or 9-foot tall, brown, 400-500 pound" creature having a
Rita Massman says that a bear isn't responsible because the goats,
mushrooms, berries and bees were undisturbed. A bear, she said, would
have taken more than chickens.
Massman says she has never seen the creature, but has heard it walking
in the brush around the garden area when she is working her vegetables.
She can tell she's being watched. She believes also that two creatures
are involved, as "Bigfoot would require a mate to stay in one area for
any length of time."
"It's scaring me," she says. "I can't let my kids outside alone. It
stands outside our house at night and observes us. And I don't like
Shortly after finding the tracks, Klaus Massman began researching
Bigfoot, to learn more about its habits and to learn how to deal with
it. What the Massmans found has made them even more fearful. Klaus's
research reveals that the North American Bigfoot "will kidnap children
for purposes of raising them" and that the Asian Bigfoot will "kill
children for food."
Rita confides that she now carries "a little pistol. If that thing
attacks me or my children, I'll defend myself." Klauss has taken to
carrying a machete-type knife whenever he's outside, also for
self-defense. And to protect his children.
Though several weeks have passed, Mrs. Massman knows that Bigfoot
remains in the area because her dogs are frightened. "They [the dogs]
fight beavers. They're not scared of bears or anything. But they're
scared of whatever's out there. It's not human, I'll tell you that."
Klaus Massman has asked the Sheriff's Department to notify the U.S.
Army and the state Department of Natural Resources (DNR) for help in
searching his wooded, marshy 80-acre property. He wants them to use
their "sophisticated equipment" to "capture Bigfoot once and for all."
A spokesman for the Sheriff's Department says that the Army has not
been notified, but the DNR has. The case was also referred to the
county's Social Services department, because children had been
frightened. The spokesman refused further comment.
While Klaus Massman waits for governmental help, with a neighbor's aid
he has strung a rope across a marsh-grass trail where Bigfoot "walks
and beds down for the night." Attached to the rope are bottles and
cans, so that when Bigfoot trips over the rope, the clanging noise will
alert the family.
Rita Massman, however, isn't so comforted by the make-shift alarm system. "The thing is so smart that won't work at all."
"We need a cage. A big giant cage to lure it into. But it's too smart. It's really an intelligent thing."

Psychic Persuades Bigfoot to Leave Farmby Chuck Baldwin
A year later, peace and restful nights have returned for Rita Massman and her family.
Bigfoot is gone.
"A psychic saw the story in the paper and came out here and asked him
to leave," says Massman. "She told him it was for his safety, because
people were out there with their rifles."
Although at the time she thought the Bigfoot was connected with UFOs,
she now knows better. There have always been UFOs, she said, "farmers
see them a lot." At the time, however, she "would have believed in
anything" she was so scared.
The psychic confirmed that it was Bigfoot. "When she was young, she dealt with a Bigfoot herself," said Rita Massman.
"Do you know they're all over? They just wander from place to place. I
even found out there was one in Chicago walking around there."
Mrs. Massman refused to identify the psychic, but was grateful for her
help in ridding the farm of the prowling Bigfoot. With the creature's
departure, she has turned to mending relations with her neighbors.
"They think the lady's really gone berserk. Been too long in the
woods," she says of neighbors' perceptions of her in the wake of her
Bigfoot revelations. "But I know there are things out there like that."
A year ago she didn't know what had been harassing the family. "At
first, we thought it was somebody scaring us. Anybody could have a
She's since learned that Bigfoot are cousins to humans. "Somehow we
were developed, and they were not developed. For them to survive, they
have to hide."
Few in the community believed the story. Evidence was scant, circumstantial.
Massman, however, feels the evidence was pretty strong. She told how
her children had first seen Bigfoot wandering the woods on their farm.
"Live, in the middle of the woods," she said. "I saw fear in their
faces, because they'd never seen anything like that."
"Kids don't lie like that. How could they make it up?"
Bigfoot's physical appearance had been terrifying to her children. From
the psychic she learned that she need not have worried, for Bigfoot
always "appear[s] in front of kids, not grown-ups. You know that Indian
kids play with Bigfoot kids?"
"He," she said, referring to Bigfoot, "was peaceful. He was just nosey." And now he has moved on.
During the family's plight, neither the Sheriff's Department nor any
other governmental unit took their fears seriously. Until the psychic,
the only person to come to their aid was a neighbor who helped rig an
alarm in the woods.
However, her husband Klaus had been the only creature to trip over the rope. Bigfoot never touched it.
Massman knows that you'll never catch Bigfoot that way - they're too intelligent. "I know it."
"I'm crazy, but I'm not that crazy."
