New Jersey has its share of issues and residents of our amazing state know there are plenty of things to keep us stressed and worried, but if you think Bigfoot is something you don't have to think too much about, you may need to do some rethinking.

We see a lot of strange things in the Garden State, but most of them are usually from the driver next to us on the Garden State Parkway, but according to The Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization we might want to spend less time looking out for bad New Jersey drivers, and more time looking for the New Jersey Bigfoot.

It might chill you to the bone that there have been 75 reports of Bigfoot sightings right here in New Jersey. Have any of them been near where you live?

Well, if you're in Sussex, Burlington, or Ocean County, you live in one of the three areas with the highest number of Bigfoot sightings in the state.

Sussex County is the highest with 18 reported Bigfoot sightings, while Burlington has 15 and Ocean has 10. Sleep well in those counties tonight.

As a matter of fact, there are only 6 counties in New Jersey, Atlantic, Bergen, Cumberland, Gloucester, Hudson, and Union that do not have documented reports of Bigfoot sightings.

For the record, it's been a year and a half since the last Bigfoot sighting in New Jersey, according to this site, and it was in Sussex County.
