OCT 3 2015. Over the weekend we went deer hunting in the Rogue Siskiyou Forest just north of Agness. The hunting was terrible because of the ongoing dry conditions in the woods. In the late hours of OCT 3, we heard what can only be described as a bad fight between unknown animals.
What I mean is we don't know for sure what animals were fighting. In the night we heard a burst of loud screaming and sounds of some animal attacking another one. At dawn on the 4th we left camp at daybreak and walked towards where we thought the sounds we had heard in the night were coming from. After walking about a mile, we came on a coyote that had literally been ripped to pieces by another animal. We saw where something had beat this coyote against tree trunks leaving blood all over them. Then the coyote had apparently had been thrown or placed over a low hanging limb on a tree. Its body still hanging there when we arrived.
Something strange was found. The limb was at the lowest point was ten feet off the ground making it impossible for a black bear to put it there. Also from the amount of blood stains it was plain this coyote had been beaten against several tree trunks at the time of death. We found part of some large tracks but they were on hard rocky ground and we couldn't identify them as anything other than large. Coyote's generally run in packs not alone and whatever killed it had immense strength.
Thank you for taking the time to write your experience. It sure sounds as if it could have been a bigfoot. ... LNP
