(Newser) – An anonymous flyer denying that Bigfoot is behind the prolonged closure of a bridge in a Vermont town has got locals talking about the mythical forest creatures. The flyer first spotted at the Bradford post office said the prolonged closure of the Creamery Bridge over the Waits River was not due to the "displacement of or intrusion on a 'Sasquatch' or Bigfoot, either a single creature or several," the AP reports. Alexander Chee, a Dartmouth College professor, posted a photo of the flyer last week to Twitter. Since then, copies have been popping up across town. Local resident Claudia Johnson said she thinks there's a local Bigfoot because she's heard unexplained rustling behind her home.

The flyer's poster has not stepped forward. A Postal Service spokesman said, "It's definitely nothing that's postal related," per Seven Days. The town clerk said maybe the state did it. Chee writes fiction, but not this piece, he said: "I teach a class at Dartmouth called Imaginary Countries. Maybe I'll bring this sign in for the first day as a writing prompt." State transportation officials say the bridge is scheduled to be fixed in October.
