The incident occurred near Ellendale, Dickey County at Christmas after a family friend of Bauer reported seeing a large creature out of her kitchen window.
“She described him as a huge, hairy, ugly monster and I guess that kind of describes it, if a Sasquatch is looking through the window at you, that’s how I’d describe him, too,” he said.
Bauer set off to track the creature through the snow but soon found that its footprints, which measured 18 by 8 inches, went on for more than seven miles.
Sadly though, despite following the trail for miles, Bauer ultimately failed to locate his quarry.
“The truth is out there. It’s there. I know he is, I tracked him,” he said.
