Bigfoot (or Sasquatch) is a mythical ape-like creature claimed to have been spotted around North America, and similar creatures in other locations around the world, such as the Yeti. The existence of Bigfoot in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas has been the center of many Internet-based rumors since the game was released. It is impossible now to tell where the idea originated, although one theory suggests that this is due to mention of the artist Bigfoot in the brochure that came with the game.
The whole idea of Bigfoot's existence fits nicely into the diverse world of the San Andreas countryside, especially its Flint County and Whetstone areas, with large virgin forests and "spooky" locations. The most popular reported sighting locations are near the cave on the side of Mount Chiliad, the Shady Cabin area, and Shady creek cabin. Several screenshots and videos have been posted claiming to show the creature in the game. Sometimes genuine in-game captures of unofficial modifications or edited (photoshopped) images and videos can fool players.
In an official interview with Terry Donovan released in 2005, he stated, "There is no Bigfoot, just like in real life." However, there is a small but vocal group of supporters of the creature's existence.
Bigfoot in Mods
Due to the big rave about "something in the woods around Mount Chiliad", people started developing mods that make Bigfoot appear there. Only one successful mod was made which wasn't in English for a while. The mod made you start with a load of weapons to choose from and a full unlocked San Andreas area. You then had to go to a farmer who gave you a mission. The mission was simple, kill Bigfoot. That mission mod also included yetis which roamed in north San Andreas.
Shortly after the CLEO version 3 releases, another mod was made with the same models. This one didn't make your save files incompatible and gave you the freedom to kill Bigfoot at any time without doing a mission. There is also a mod for the player to look like Bigfoot.
On the map in the Flint county section if you go south to that area and look at the land and road shapes they form a foot like shape which could be a clue to the Bigfoot foot or the something is out there. If you are attempting to search for Bigfoot then the best place to do so is either in Back o Beyond or the cave side of Mount Chilliad. Helicopters, jetpack or all-terrain vehicles are recommended. The Police Maverick is the best helicopter due to its spotlight, which provides merge illumination of its surroundings.
