Type: Bigfoot
Date: 1910
Location: Mirror Lake in Sauk County, Wisconsin

Source: The W-Files Book by Jay Rath, page 8



This is a great encounter even if brief and short on details, I'm very glad Mr. Rath was able to save this for all time in his book.  It could easily be classified as Bigfoot by today's categories however, I think it best fits in with "wildman" sightings.


In 1910, at Mirror Lake in Sauk County, a 10-year-old girl saw a creature in the woods that looked somewhat like a man but was covered with fur. It peacefully trailed her home, leaving tracks twice as large as her father's.
