GRANTS PASS, Ore. — The enigmatic cryptid known far and wide as "Big Foot" has a new home in Grants Pass as of Monday afternoon.
A 4,000-pound, 15-foot high carving of Sasquatch was lifted into place at the parking lot next to Smokey's Stoves in downtown Grants Pass via crane.
“We think Sasquatch will be a nice addition to downtown Grants Pass and will be a welcome sight for all who travel to the coast down the Redwood Highway," said Gene Bradley, owner of Smokey's Stoves. "This big fella has been standing at the coast for long enough and it was time for him to get a new home.”
Bradely said that the Sasquatch was carved out of a 5-foot diameter redwood trunk along the Oregon coast in Langlois, just south of Bandon.
