Sasquatch Sighting Near Glendale, Oregon
(June 16, 2011)
I’d like to relay a bigfoot sighting to the readers of Ballyhoo. This sighting occurred in 1999 near Glendale, Oregon on the night of August 24. My family and friends from college had all went camping west of Glendale for a weekend of church meeting activities
After dinner we decided to sit outside the tents because of the heat. Around 10 pm we heard something on the hillside make a knocking like sound. The knocking sounds repeated every few minutes seemingly from different areas around the camp. We all thought “woodpecker” of course.
At 1 am we were awakened by a loud noise in the camp. Several in the group got up to see what was happening outside. When they emerged from the tents a foul smell filled the air and became very pronounced.
Several in my group sighted a very large manlike animal walking off with only the cooking grill part of the barbecue from the now cold barbecue outfit.
They all watched with flashlights as this thing walked off on 2 legs covered with blackish-brown hair all over it. Several guys shouted at the thing as it disappeared into the forest. After a moment all was again quiet. The odor of this animal was such that it made some sick to their stomachs.
We contacted the local camp host and the men explained what they had encountered. To their surprise the host had had other reports a week earlier on the same thing. In that case the animal had made off with a loaf of bread and a bag of apples. The host told the men that this animal had been seen inside and around the campground since June.
The host had called the local law agency and each time the police came by the animal was never around. The host called the animal a sasquatch. I was never a person to believe in sasquatch or bigfoot until I read more information in books about them. I still think of that night and believe bigfoot was the animal that visited our camp.
