Most of my life I've been an outdoor person
who loves to camp fish and hunt. Back in my working years I spent most of the
time out in the wilderness inspecting bug and other diseases affecting timber. Through those years I can say I was rarely frightened by some kind of unknown
animal or sounds. Just before retirement came I was ask to investigate an area
in Oregon where BLM had found trees seemly tore to bits by some animal.
trees had been in an area where no wood rot had been detected and were all
healthy trees before. I went to this area along with a BLM field employee. On
the way he had talked to me about how they were confused on what may have killed
these trees off in this matter of destruction. When we arrived at the nearby
location we needed to walk app 2 miles into the forest to get to the spot. I
must admit I was not prepared for the trip. It was very steep country and very
hard to navigate through. When we reached the area I was absolutely shocked.
trees had been shredded of all bark up to the 11 foot mark. Large branches all
over the ground showed twisting by something with enormous power and strength.
Many smaller trees (Reproduced) were ripped up and mangled. I have never seen
anything like this before. On close examination we discovered large manlike
tracks 18x 7/12.The tracks were everywhere showing somebody had came and gone on
different occasions to this spot. More examination showed the larger trees had
been ripped apart shattering the grain. No known animal out there could do this.
Whatever this was it had to be super strong well beyond human mans powers.Also
we located tufts of hair where the animal must have rubbed itself against the
trunk of some trees. These hair samples smelled very pungent along with a strong
fecal smell . I surmised the hairs were not bear or any other known wildlife
native to this area.
We collected all the samples then video taped the damage
and returned to the truck. On the way back to the office the employee told me
they had gotten reports of a bigfoot like man or ape in this area. Off the
record the employee told me of an encounter with what he called a big ape-man
mixture several year before near this same area. After we returned to the office
I contacted the lab for DNA testing and species identification. All the hair
came back as primate (species unknown). I will admit everything I looked at that
day adds up to a very large and strong creature not yet discovered or
