Linda, we have some good news out of the Powers Ranger District in the Siskiyous. Long time ranger district manager Carl Linderman has retired and a new and younger female ranger Jesse Berner from Modoc NF in Northern California is taking his place.
We hope with this change of guards there will become some badly needed honesty about the Bigfoot sightings in this area. She seems to be open on Bigfoot and has said every report will be treated with respect to the persons making it. It is a well known fact Linderman did not want Bigfoot sightings to ever become public under his management.
Much news of recent sightings in that area were kept private and hidden from prying eyes. There is ongoing searches in that area for Bigfoot and the public should be aware that a very recent sighting by a OSP game officer was hushed up.
Bigfoot reports should always be known to people who wish to investigate them and other such reports.
Here is the website on the new Ranger.http://www.fs.fed.us/r6/rogue-siskiyou/news/2011/08-12-2011-welcome-powers-district-ranger.shtml
Thank you for the informative comment. And if you've read this blog for any time at all, you know I, Linda Newton-Perry, believe we as forest users have a RIGHT to know about the animal. Thanks again.
