In July, 2009 our family was camped at Indian Mary Campground between Merlin Oregon and Galice Oregon for one week. On that Friday it was a warm day so we left camp for some wading in the Rogue downstream from Almeda Mine. We were having a blast with the grand kids. Over across the river appeared some animal that fits Bigfoot description.
It seemed to walk on just two legs and seemed to be mostly covered in a light brown hair coat. It came out of the forest on the opposite side of us and watched us for some time. The kids were not aware that it was watching us until a smell seem to fill the air. A very pungent smell. After some time the Bigfoot walked off in a parallel direction to the river.
We watched the big animal go to the river's edge after a while and it seemed to drink water from the river. It did this by cupping it's large hands together and raising the water to it's mouth. Then it walked up the hillside and into some forested area. We went back to camp and reported what we saw.
A forest service ranger came the next morning to our camp and interviewed us. According to him these animals are not common to see but he said it does happen at times. The next day some man went over to the sighting area by drift boat and collected 8 prints in which he casted and photographed.
The forest service ranger did return and tell us the prints were 17 inches by 6 in. He was very polite and said he truly believed our sighting was real and truthful. We are 100% sure the animal was female by the breast area.
Thank you for your sighting. Chris and I have been to this area several times. ... Linda Newton-Perry
