Portland author Michelle Souliere is on the lookout for Bigfoot. Or at least Mainers who think they’ve seen Bigfoot.
Souliere hopes the recent airing of a Maine episode of the popular television show “Finding Bigfoot” on the cable network Animal Planet will inspire people to come forward and talk with her about their sightings.
The author, who writes the blog Strange Maine and released the 2009 book “Strange Maine: True Tales From the Pine Tree State,” said her research over the years has “uncovered dozens of interesting stories scattered throughout Maine history.”
But, she said, she still needs more to complete a forthcoming book about Bigfoot sightings in the state.
“It’s clearly time for me to take the next step,” she said in a statement. “My goal is to start tying in all the current stories that are floating around, and talk to folks about what they’ve seen out there in the Maine woods.”
