The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

That can't be faked!

It's probably a black bear footprint, despite what the "hunters" say.

Yeah, right.

That sir, is CLEARLY a "Squatch". Lets spend a week away from our jobs, drinking beer, using night vision, and hunt the gentle beast down!

Ohio sightings by county:

Ashtabula 7
Geauga 8
Cuyahoga 0
Summit 9
Portage 20
Stark 10
Lake 1
Lorain 4
Medina 6
Richland 4
Medina 6
Ashland 4
Columbiana 10
Carroll 3
Tuscarawas 6
Erie 2
Huron 1
Mahoning 6
Wayne 0
(sightings since 1960)

I wonder if their obvious inability to come up with good names may be at the heart of their inability to identify bears tracks. (Said the man from Transcona.)

Hard to tell from the photo, but probably a bear. Pretty big bear, though. If they are sincere, and not hoaxing or being hoaxed.
