Sighting: Mountains Between Grants Pass and Gold Beach(Gloria Stinnitt)
(July 8, 2012)
My husband and I were talking to an ex ODF&W gentleman in a coffee shop last week. He was telling my husband and I about one of the strangest bigfoot stories I’ve ever heard of. It seems this family was camping in the high mountains between Grants Pass and Gold Beach, Oregon, when this occurred in 2009.
The family had gone to bed about eleven pm and at one am small rocks and fir cones were hitting the tent. The family inside listened for over an hour to gibbering type sounds from near the tent. I guess around 2:30 am the wife wanted her husband to go outside the tent to see what was making the ruckus. He did.
According to the ODF&W man the husband walked out the entrance of the tent right into a giant hairy manlike thing standing near the tent. He said the bigfoot creature shoved the husband into the side of the tent then turned and walked off on two legs like a man.
The husband could see from the dim light of the coals in the fire that all together there were three creatures. One of them was only around 4 foot tall with the other two over eight feet in height.
They went to the nearest place to report the night action. The man that was telling us this story was the one who went to the camp and found over 23 footprints of enormous size and 14 smaller ones. The prints were of a human like bare foot with five toes. Also the tent had been ripped apart and all the food in the camp had been eaten or carried off.
The man took pictures of the camp site, cast the prints and collected a large amount of scat and turned it over to the OSP for further examination. He said as far as he knew nothing was ever found to match either the prints or scat. The man said he absolutely believes these creatures were a family of sasquatches.
