The Loveland Frogman (the Big Foot of the Tri-State) has been sited by a man and his girlfriend playing Pokeman Go. Sam Jacobs says he and his girlfriend were playing "Pokemon Go" between Loveland Madeira Road and Lake Isabella when they spotted the creature. Sam says, "We saw a huge frog near the water. Not in the game (Pokemon Go), this was an actual giant frog. I took a couple of pictures and a video 'cause I'd never seen one that big. Then the thing stood up and walked on its hind legs". He continues, "We saw a huge frog near the water. Not in the game (Pokemon Go), this was an actual giant frog. I took a couple of pictures and a video 'cause I'd never seen one that big. Then the thing stood up and walked on its hind legs". Jacobs went on to say he realizes some people will think he's crazy. "I swear on my grandmother's grave that this is the truth", Jacobs said. "I'm not sure whether it was a Frogman or just a giant frog. Either way, I've never seen anything like it."

Residents in and around the community have been talking about the Frogman for decades.
When was the creature first spotted? According to Bigfootblogspot.com the legend dates back to 1955 when it was seen swimming in the Little Miami River. Others say it was a Loveland police officer who first saw the leathery- skinned being in 1972. Legend has it that the officer nearly hit the creature with his car. When the officer stopped, the gigantic frog stood in the middle of the road, got on its hind legs, crawled over a guard rail and into the river.
