From KC of 96.3 The Blaze FM:
2020 has been a strange year for paranormal and cryptozoology. The year has been so whacky, that even having our own government admit that UFOs are real didn't seem to phase any of us. Not to mention the increase of strange happenings around the globe. Take the "monoliths" that keep popping up around the planet. Granted, people like to say that they are all part of some elaborate hoax. But, how do you coordinate these weird metallic objects to pop up in Utah and Romania?...Not to mention a new one discovered in California. But, I digress....

The real story today is BIGFOOT! 2020 has been a year full of BIGFOOT sightings here in the US. The Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization recently compiled data of all the reported sightings of Bigfoot in the United States. There data shows which states have the most sightings, and which states you are more likely to have a Bigfoot sighting, compared to the population of your state.

According to satelliteinternet.com

Bigfoots avoid high-density populations, so even if there are more sightings in a state, a larger population in any area might scare him away from sightseeing spots. You’ll want to check out the more desolate parts of the dense forests to see one yourself.

Judging by the data, Montana does not have as many sightings as say Washington or Oregon. But, we also have far fewer residents living in such a big state. Even though Montana only has 52 reported Bigfoot sightings. Compared to our population, you have a 1 in 20,000 chance of seeing the hairy ape.

According to the research, Montana makes the top 5 states with most Bigfoot sightings by population.
