My Name is KS
I wish to make my sighting part of your record of Sasquatch experiences.
Your site has given me courage. I am shy about sharing my experience. It is a relief to see more and more from USFS posting the truth. I spent time as an archaeological assistant several semesters each year while in graduate and post-graduate school. We definitely knew about the bigfoots. We were given a reference card, which included the accepted scientific taxa accepted by the USFS. I kept it to this day-
O. nerteros pacificus
I remember learning about Dr. Miller and the debates about classifying the animal, and the taxonomy keeps changing each decade or so. But his species classification has stayed the test of time.
Because the animal is a hodgepodge of various primate qualities from New World Monkeys, to prosimian, to Old World Monkeys, it was recently determined to create a single new family of Primate. This new family literally means all – in – one or all encompassing.
As an archaeological assistant for the United States Forest Service, we were assigned to very remote areas in the Pacific Northwest. Of course we knew we could encounter three different kinds of bigfoots- O. arktos, O. nerteros pacificus, and O.americanus. One early morning while at a study site in the gold hill area- I noticed a herd of running big-black-tail. The deer ran through an open grove. It seemed like out of no-where when a large bigfoot (O. nerteros pacificus) jumped from the tree line and landed on top of a large blacktail. It nearly straddled the deer and flung its huge muscular arm around the neck of the deer, pulling it to the ground. Once the deer was to the ground- the bigfoot clamped its huge jaws onto the neck of the deer and shook it violently. I was terrified- especially when it looked up at me and stared momentarily. Then it grabbed the deer by its neck and dragged it off.
Anytime I tell the story- I am ridiculed. I hope more forest service or fish and wildlife employees start speaking up.
Please only use my initials when posting online.
BTW [By The Way]This is what the other side of the reference card says: (Note: O. n.p. is the reference to bigfoots. O. nerterus pacificus)____________

When encountering unexpected O. n.p. wildlife
While driving a vehicle:
Keep Headlights, taillights, mirrors, and all windows clean and clear
Slow down and try to avoid the animal.
Note: If encountering O. n.p., it is safer to hit the animal rather than to drive off the shoulder and risk a head-on collision.
O. n.p. that display dangerous characteristics should be destroyed
Private Livestock and O. n.p.
At times the O. n.p. may feed on private live stock on federal lands, notify your supervisor immediately and maintain confidentiality.
Exercise extreme caution in the presence of O. n.p.
Keep alert for O. n.p. at all times
