It has been an exciting day, because of "Debbie's" comment. (Read it below.) But, no one has commented. Please tell us your thoughts on her comment, on this wood's ape that we all here, believe in. ...Linda Newton-Perry
If Science Can't Help With Bigfoot, Can the Law?
Would it be possible to prove, by Law, a huge ape lives in the forests of the world, at least in the United States? or one state? For generations now, when one is graced with a sighting of one of these animals, what follows is often hateful scoffing, hateful ridiculing and even some, people/ institutions (laws), question the person’s sanity. We have sightings beyond number, footprints, the same. We have Native Peoples’ lore and on and on. One would think a good attorney could use this information to form a solid case to once-and-for-all declare this animal exists, or open to the public the closed files which contain classified information. And of course, we have the 1962 Columbus Day Storm victim that the government has covered up. How so? The laws are such that an ordinary citizen with no ties to the government can not request to view the file of the ’62 animal. Bigfoot Ballyhoo has been told there is such a file, with possible bones.
A call has gone out on Bigfoot Ballyhoo (www.bigfootballyhoo.blogspot.com) to lawyers who may relish an exciting challenge that in the end could get put on the books, a law recognizing that this animal exists. All people need to know this animal is in our forests. We need to know to watch for it, to admire it and possibly protect ourselves from it. It is our right to know. (Don’t you think?) The lawyer’s fees must be free, for we have been told it can be expensive to sue the government to open a file etc. If you are a lawyer, please consider taking on this worthy challenge.
I’ve had scoffing leveled at me, not vicious, but unsettling just the same. While working with the local paper, The North County News, several years back, I wrote an article on bigfoot. The psychologist that wrote for the paper took to calling me, not to my face mind you, The Bigfoot Lady. Even now when I explain I write this blog, I often get a sneering little laugh and head shaking, denoting disbelief. If I feel it is worth my time, I’ll explain. And often the one listening will walk away at least believing bigfoot is a possibility.
If you’ve had an experience with one of these forest apes, please share it. Tell your friends about this column in the Douglas County News, and this blog. Let’s make “talking bigfoot” commonplace.

One year ago today, GE, now retired, a contractor for the Forest Service had this experience. Ballyhoo promised to share it again with you readers.
GE's Sighting, April 9, 2009
Linda, I'll tell the story to you being the man does not want to give his name. Let's call him GE. GE is a contractor for the Forest Service in Coos and Curry counties. On April 9, 2009, he was working on a culvert repair job on Elk River headwaters up on Butler Mountain. Late in the afternoon, around 5 pm, he quit for the day. He got in his pickup to return to his camp trailer on Laird Lake, some 20 miles from the job site. He had only traveled about 1 mile and his pickup broke down with a broken axle.
He tried to get out on his cell phone but couldn't get a signal. He knew the Forest Service man was coming up to the job the next day, so he decided to spend the night in his truck. Well, he said about 1:30 am he woke up because his pickup was shaking. After a few seconds, he woke enough to sit up in his back seat and look to see what was going on.
When he sat up, he saw a dark figure outside of the passenger door. At first he thought somebody had found him and was there to help. Then he noticed no lights in front of him. He watched the figure walk around his truck and give it another shake. By this time he was scared as hell!
He noticed the figure was massive in size and way too tall for a human. He remained very still hoping whatever it was would leave. He said the smell was just terrible, like a dead body. After about 45 minutes or so another figure came down off the bank and just stood about 10 feet from the truck. It was then when one of them let out a hair raising scream that could not come from anthing he'd ever heard. This time he was really scared, as he didn't know what kind of things these two were. He said several times before daybreak one of them would walk around the truck and try to look in. He said they were covered in fur or hair, about 8ft tall and 500 lbs or better. The face on the one that looked through the window was man-ape like, dark in color, black or dark brown hair.
Finally at first light they left and he could see big big footprints all around the truck. GE did not get out of the truck till the Forest Service guy arrived at 8 am.
He told the guy what had happened and the man said on several different occasions he had felt he was being watched by someone. Well GE never said another word about that night till he retired. He said he was sure the Forest Service would ban him from bidding on anymore contracts.
Debbie has left a new comment on your post "More From Debbie on the 1962 Animal":
I will talk with my group today to see if they want to take this on. We area non profit group so no fee would apply. We often take these cases on bigfoot and others. Will let you know! Sometimes if the feds think a suit is imminent they reverse decisions on what they want to keep classified. No promises but will run it by them!
How exciting! Please use your most persuasive skills. Truly, the world should know bigfoot exists. Oh yes, you know Jane Goodall blieves the animal exists. Perhaps you can get her to testify if it comes to that.
Thanks again, LP
