No, Bigfoot is not hiding in Funk’s Grove. Give me a break.
FUNKS GROVE - Researchers have been looking for Bigfoot in Funks Grove, but aWell, that is unless that primate can survive on maple syrup. I’m not sure why the Pantagraph is wasting time on this snipe hunt.
local zoologist interested in the elusive creature's lore said he would be very surprised if one is found there.
A report last fall by people who said they saw a large hairy upright creature in a ditch in rural Shirley attracted a team of researchers from Searching for Bigfoot Inc. of Menlo Park, Calif.
Angelo Capparella, a professor at Illinois State University, said he also heard the report and talked to the people at the time.
He said that if there is a Bigfoot - a big if in his book - Central Illinois is not the place to find one. Even though Funks Grove is a wooded area, there just isn't much habitat locally to support or conceal a large primate, Capparella said.
