Out of all the people who claim to have seen Bigfoot, one Michigan woman puts them all to shame. For Robin Lynn-Pfeifer, Bigfoot sightings became an everyday occurrence after a family of them made their home in the woods behind her house. While there are all types of Bigfoot legends around the world, the elusive cryptid doesn't have as much of a reputation in Michigan as it has in the Pacific Northwest and other parts of the US.

Who is the mother of Bigfoots? Robin Lynn-Pfeifer is just a regular woman who happens to be a magnet for hairy, mysterious creatures that have never been seen by anyone outside of a select few. Like ranch-owners beset by aliens in Arizona, Lynn-Pfeifer is more than willing to share her story with the world, setting the record straight on Bigfoot behavior and earning a complicated relationship with the greater Bigfoot community.

Stop the presses. It turns out that when strolling through the woods, Bigfoots are secretly craving a simple breakfast. When the Bigfoots moved onto her property in 2009, Lynn-Pfeifer started feeding them different foods and discovered that the cryptids loved blueberry bagels. 

When discussing their feeding schedule with Discovery News in 2011, she said: "They get fish every day, a bucket of fruit, a bucket of dry dog food. . . . Their favorite thing is blueberry bagels." And just so neighbors don't think she's doing anything weird with the baked goods, she makes sure to buy the bagels at different stores in her area.

According to Lynn-Pfeifer, when the Bigfoots aren't chomping down on blueberry bagels and dry dog food, they're goofing around and pulling pranks. She said that they like to crawl around in her home's crawl space, knock on the walls, and braid her pony's hair. As if that wasn't cute enough, she said that they also build little stick structures when they hang out in the woods.

You would think that if a family of Bigfoots moved onto your property, the first thing you'd do is take a photo of the new neighbors. Lynn-Pfeifer has definitely tried to take their picture, but the wily Bigfoots always seem to outwit her. 

When she would set up automatic cameras around the forest, the Bigfoots wold turn them upside down. Even though she hasn't been able to take photos, she has been able to make plaster casts of their feet. True to their name, the biggest footprint that she's found comes in at 18.5-inches long.


Lynn-Pfeifer Has Supporters In Russian Cryptozoology

Lynn-Pfeifer has taken her findings across the Pacific to discuss her story with other Bigfoot believers in Russia. She attended a gathering in the Kemerovo region where she met Igor Burtsev, a researcher in the Russian cryptozoological world. Burtsev believes that he's found evidence of a Yeti-like creature in Russia. After hearing Lynn-Pfeifer's story, he visited her in Michigan. Though he didn't see any of the Bigfoots while he was at her home, but he still believes her 100% based on the evidence she's collected.
