Sasquatch story

Today, in my email, I received a copy of a newsletter from Oregonbigfoot.com that has one of the best Sasquatch encounter stories I have seen. Whether fact or fiction it is a good read. Here’s a short excerpt:

“For several moments I just stared!  Bare, humanoid foot prints that measured just over eighteen inches in length with a stride that I, at six feet, four inches could not begin to emulate.  For me, a full stride, left and right is exactly five feet in length.  I’ve measured it time and again in my capacity as a forester.  The stride on this creature was well over eight feet in length!  That was an awesome stride!  My first inclination, after regaining mobility, was to follow them to see where they led, and, hopefully, what was making them.”

Do I believe this story? Yes, I do because of an experience that I personally had forty years ago, at night, in the forests of central Washington State. Whether you believe it or not is irrelevant and doesn’t really matter to me. It’s a good read either way.

Tales of a giant, hairy ape-like creature tramping through the woods are running wild in a northern interior B.C. town after a rash of sasquatch sightings.

Drive carefully…They have short tempers when run over.

Probably in Colorado? They have other Bigfoot Crossing signs.

Nessie? Bigfoot? Ogopogo?

So what do we do if any of these legendary creatures is actually found? Not to worry. As long ago as 1977 the U.S. government had a plan. You can download a pdf amd read it here.

8 feet tall

More at  8 feet tall’

A trip to pick blueberries last week bagged something much larger for a Grassy Narrows [Canada] woman and her mother.

On July 22, Helen Pahpasay and her mother left the Ontario First Nation, located about 80 km northeast of Kenora, to go berry picking. While driving in their truck to a spot about 25 km north of Grassy Narrows, Pahpasay said she spotted a tall, black creature roughly 15 metres ahead.

“It looked about eight feet tall and it was upright,” she said.

Pahpasay said she thought her eyes were playing tricks on her until her mother confirmed she was seeing the same thing in front of them.

Yeti hair?

More at Telegraph

The hunt for the elusive creature [Yeti] – said to be 10ft tall, part man, part ape and otherwise known as the Abominable Snowman – has frustrated scientists for decades.

Now tests at Oxford Brookes University on hairs said to be from a Yeti in India have failed to link the strands with any known species.

Ape expert Ian Redmond, who is leading the research, said: “The hairs are the most positive evidence yet that a Yeti might possibly exist. It may be that the region this animal is inhabiting is remote enough for it to remain undiscovered so far.”

The two hairs – 33mm and 44mm long – were found in a jungle in the mountains of north-east India five years ago.

Mysterious Monsters prize

Mysterious Monsters – Yahoo! News

Bigfoot and lake monsters, beware: There’s a price on your heads.

Binocular manufacturer Bushnell, along with “Field & Stream” magazine, have teamed up to offer $1 million to anyone who can “provide an unaltered photograph/video, verified and substantiated by a panel of scientific experts [including a zoologist and biologist], the evidence required to prove a Sasquatch/Bigfoot/Yeti exists.”

The contest started a few days ago and ends Dec. 15, but before heading out to claim your million, note that the rules’ fine print states that they are not liable for any injury incurred during a Bigfoot attack. A good quality Bigfoot image would make history; most photos are of such consistently poor quality that within the Bigfoot research community there’s even a name for a typical blurry “Bigfoot” image: blobsquatch.

This is, of course, a marketing promotion and not a genuine search for Bigfoot. There’s no way to authenticate a Bigfoot photograph by itself; the image is simply a two-dimensional pattern of pixels. To truly prove a Bigfoot exists, you’d need corroborating hard evidence like a body, teeth, or bones.
