The Ilkley Moor Bigfoot 1998

I think this may be the only UK bigfoot abduction account to date. Resembling the Bauman story from the USA, the witness renowned in his own right claimed not only to encoumter the UK Bigfoot but was held for a number of hours.

Roger Willemsom, renowned UFOlogist and local historian, claims that while walking along the edges of Ilkley Moor in Yorkshire, he encounters a fiend.

The creature stood, at least two heads taller than Willemsom, It stood in the way, blocking his path while beating its hairy chest with such ferociousness, clumps of hair flew in all directions.

Willemsom says the next thing he remembers is being trapped inside a twig and bark hut of some crude design.

Over the next several hours, he is poked with sticks and mud is slung at him. He reports of being cold and wet. Upon his release, he immediately notifies the press about his strange abduction at the hands of what he dubs, very unimaginatively, the Ilkley Moor Bigfoot.......

A very strange account and i have contacted Mr Willemsom in the hopes of finding out more about his encounter that day.
