This drawing reminded me of one of my "A Matter of Time" newspaper columns I wrote in 2008. It's about a red Bigfoot. I'll write just the portion having to do with the red Bigfoot.
2007 Deschutes County, Sighting
I'm again using information from the http://www.bigfootencounters.com/ website for this week's column. Deschutes County is northeast of Douglas and in central Oregon, across from Lane County.
So, it isn't far from Douglas County, and should be of interest to the readers of this column. As last week, I'll write the sighting in my own words.
The person who saw the Sasquatch is an employee of USGS and was out checking seismic equipment. He had stopped to store some gear. While drinking bottled water, a movement caught his eye on the mountain road ahead of him.
There before him, a big hairy "man" had stepped onto the road. They locked eyes briefly and next the animal walked off into the woods.
Where the Sasquatch left the road and had to duck under a limb required the animal to be at least 10 feet tall.
This report was put on the above website by one that was told this story by the USGS (article didn't say what these letters mean) employee.
When asked if he'd reported it he laughed and said more or less in these words, "No way, I'm not telling anyone I saw a Red Sasquatch!"
He described the color of the animal's fur/hair to be red to reddish brown.
