1962 Dead Bigfoot

Jerry Lustin's Experience When the 1962 Creature was Found

Jerry Lustin has left a new comment on your post "Bill Emery comments on 1962 Bones":

Hello, I'm Jerry Lustin and was among the guys who found the giant creature in November of 1962. Bill emery has asked me to write a short comment on this site. I have never wrote anything in my life so bare with me.

It was in the early hours of November 9th when me and several other men were working the Dew Ridge area clearing wind falls from the roads in the area. If memory serves me it was 8:30 am or so when we saw what we thought to be a dead bear under a big old growth tree on Dew. As we approached the bear it became plain to us that it was not a bear.

The animal was something in between ape and human in looks only larger than any thing I've seen ever before or since. The animal was laying under the tree face down and dead. We all looked at it and to our surprise this animal had hands and feet not paws. It was covered in a short crop of black hair and obviously not anything ever seen by us before.

We needed a forest service foreman to come to the site right away to look at it because, we were not to remove any fatalities from wind storm damage trees without forest service being on site. We had well understood protocol to go through in case we came across a car with people in it under a tree. Ranger Guy Adams from Cave Junction arrived and took photos from both sides of the tree. Then more people came up to do the same. As the site filled with forest service and unknown people we were directed to cut a 10 section out above the creature for removal.

It was after we removed the tree off the animal that they got branch poles out and turned the animal over onto its back. The animal's eyes ware open and dried blood was all over the mouth and ears of the animal. The eyes were black in color. Teeth were jagged and yellowish. It had breasts on it like a female only dropped and small in shape. It was female of course. Everybody was told to stay away from the animal at this point. By noon a truck had showed up and they used block and tackle to pick the animal up and swing it into the back of the flatbed.

At that point the big wig from Medford came and they told us to leave that road and go to Glary Creek some 5 mile away to work for the rest of the week. They started acting like squirrels to many of us, nervous and snappy. It was three days later when Guy told us that animal was a ape escaped from a home in O'Brien. We knew it was bull, because who keeps a 8 ft ape for a pet. We knew when we uncovered the animal, it wasn't no ape. We didn't know about bigfoot then but thought it was some kind of wild man-gal.

For some time after many stories came out on the animal as to what it was. My brother- in- law took 3 pictures of it and I hope to give copies to Emery if Stan can locate them.

Thank you, Jerry. How exciting that day must have been. We loo

Have You Seen a Bigfoot?

Where Bigfoot Has Been Spotted

We intend to visit these areas in the near future searching for bigfoot. We may only see a couple of footprints, but that's just fine. It's enough to know the animal has been seen in these areas. And while we search he's probably folded in a ball sleeping. On the most part bigfoots/Sasquatches are thought to be night animals. Please comment....Linda Newton-Perry

This site has been published since 2009. If a person had the means and know how he could prove bigfoot exists just by some of its content: For example the Columbus Day animal of 1962. Debbie the lawyer working for this site did get the Smithsonian File containing bones and more from this animal opened to one person for a set time. The file was located in Colorado, and we had no one in place to view the file. We, along with Debbie, decided to go for a full public viewing. Soon after the Smithsonian claimed to have lost the file!

Reprint of Columbus Day Storm Articles

The Three Newspaper Articles About the '62 Columbus Day Animal

(1st Newspaper article)

As of yesterday there is still no identification on the strange animal found on Dew Ridge in Southern Oregon on November 8th. The creature is something still unidentified but is said to be some kind of a mutant human gorilla type. It was found deceased by a crew of men who were clearing debris from nearby roads. It was apparently killed by a Douglas Fir tree in the massive windstorm of October 12th . Officials from Unites States Forest Service are not commenting on the find. A unnamed source said the creature was covered in dark hair and was not any known animal to any of the people present at the site. People nearby in Cave Junction claim it is the creature in indian legend known as "SASQUATCH". Indians claim for hundreds of year these creatures roamed the deep forest of America. The name for the creature means "Wildman of the Woods according to Johnny Duncan a Klamath Indian. The animal was removed by Forest Service officials and was sent to a lab in California according to the locals in town. The Forest Service spokesman wound not confirm or deny the animal. Story by Clayton Lewis chief reporter for The Independent Daily

2nd Newspaper article

Amity News Source November 14,1962. CREWS FIND LEGENDARY BIGFOOT. A logging crew contracted through the US Forest Service found what some say is the legendary bigfoot. The being is a large manlike hominid according to local wildlife biologist Kirk Hansen. The name bigfoot gained popularity in 1958-59 when a contractor in Northern California found large prints of a unknown animal on a narrow dirt logging road. The bigfoot found by the crew is said to be female in sex and very heavy in build. The animal was badly decomposed state but was still in tact enough to identify as a species not known. A call today to the ranger station produced no information on what the being or animal might be. Though several pictures of the animal are circulating about in the surrounding area the forest service said no information nor identification has been made.

3rd Newspaper article

On a clear and cold November day of last last year the crew of Griffy and Laird Company were looking for trees blocking the road from O'Brien to Greyback on the Oregon California border. What they found was nothing short of astonishment when approaching a large downed tree. At first it appeared that a very large black bear had fallen victim to the windstorm of October 12th. Upon closer examination of the animal the crew saw a foot and a left arm and hand protruding from under the tree. No known species of animal could explain the body as any known animal that is native to the Pacific Northwest. It was like a large hair covered man only with features somewhat like a prehistoric human or neanderthal but larger than any known to exist. Apparently the animal had been crushed by a large tree blown over in the storm. The proper authorities were quickly dispatched to the scene and took the animal away for further examination by forensic experts. No further word on what the examination found but in a curious turn about face the Forest Service said is now saying no such animal was found,removed or shipped anywhere. In the meantime many of the people in the area have seen pictures of the dead animal and are accusing the Forest Service of trying to hide the animal from the public .

This article from March 1963 from The Valley Times. All the names from the district office of USFS were blacked out from this article.

I don't get it. Why can't people snap a photo of this animal and get it to a local TV station to be shown to the WORLD? This is what I believe one should do if they have a photo. What do you think?

Every once in a while someone will email a sighting of a bigfoot to me. I'll post it here and perhaps make a video for Youtube. A few weeks ago my son and his friends were gold prospecting and one member of the group spotted a bigfoot peering at them from behind a tree. And then someone commented a sighting from a place where my husband and I had just been hiking. So the subject of bigfoot stays in my life. Do comment. Talk later. ... Linda Newton-Perry

A New Comment From My Youtube Video

 About a month ago I had one throw a rock near me as I had come up from behind it as it was just below me. I came up this steep mountain side to the highest  point and on the other side of this mountain is a cliff. The sasquatch was about ten feet down on the cliff which over looked a creek down below. It was very windy so it would of been hard for it to hear me coming up the other side. I'd stepped up on the rock at the highest point and that's when it made a loud snort sort of sound with me jumping back. As I jumped back is when a rock was toss near me. So basically I spooked it as it did the same to me. I took off going back the way I came. I knew beforehand this was an area where I believed they hung out during the day time but didn't think I would run into one that quick. There are some lakes on one side of the mountain and a creek on the other side down below where they hunt at night time. There are no trails in the area and is a place where no one goes. There is a pair of them, female and male and are old with grey hair. Second time I have seen them. once from a distance and this recent encounter. The area is in the Eastern Sierras where they go up high in the summer and then go down lower in elevation in winter on a southern facing mountain side and remain on the eastern side of the sierras. As far as I know they have no children in the area as I have only seen their tracks. They probably had children years ago and have left the area or are in another valley several miles away.

This comment is from the person that saw the bigfoot in this video.

(+Linda Newton-Perry hello I just downloaded google plus and saw your response ...and I don't blame you. I do know that I never ever imagined it was true , and I still can't believe what I saw. You know the more I think about it I'm not sure if it was trying to hurt us maybe more like scare us away. I was talking it over with my friend and we have come to the conclusion now that' it's settled in some and we've went over things ...that if it wanted to , it could have actually hit us with the rocks ! And it could have ran after us and attacked us, which it didn't . To be honest I almost called 911 but was in fear of them not taking us serious . I will never forget the size and the fear that hit me, and I'm a pretty big man lol. Anyways thank you for not thinking we are crazy and part of me wants to go back to see if there are any tracks or anything it could have left behind!)

Of all the sightings on this site I can't find one that talks of the bigfoot on all fours. My sighting in 1972 was over near Gardner, Oregon. The bigfoot ran on two feet then went down on all fours while running down this hunting trail at stealth speed. It was a big animal looking like most of the ones described here but with that one exception.  Maybe they all do it and I just happened to view it. Maybe too because my sighting lasted over ten minutes, much longer than most. It had been eating the berries from a salmon berry patch along this trail.

The sighting was actually 14 miles up on the Smith River Road but Gardner is the nearest town. It was a female with breasts visible. Anyway she ran on her legs for some time then went down on her hands and feet still running. The only sound I heard was a loud sharp whistle right before she stood up in the berry patch and glared at me.

She was very light in color almost light tan looking except for a patch running down her back that was a darker brown. The sun was on her so that may have made her look lighter. I have never smelt anything so offensive as she was. The smell was a thick pungent smell with an off smell like rotten eggs. I worked out in the woods for International Paper at the time and reported the sighting to my boss with no problems. Fact is he had seen one in 1948 up near Florence. I think that probably helped that he had seen one too.

This comment is in regards to Person who lost  an arm to Bigfoot. I think they usually do not want to be around humans however there is a curiosity measure, when it comes to them and theirs. That having been said, I am sure if they are plenty hungry and they cannot readily find food as they usually do then they may turn to other kinds of food sources, Humans to be included.

They are, after all a lot bigger than us humans so they might impose themselves. One can never know about their approach. I saw one once that came from around a tree. I didn't hear it or pick up any smells preceding it. I think it came out of curiosity because I had been playing a harmonica in the woods while I was walking with my little dog. I was frightened by its appearance and could not move a muscle. I was frozen in place. Finally it left me.

I walked backwards out of the woods and got to my car in a hurry, got in Quickly, and then made my escape before it decided to come back. That's my experience. I can't get it out of my mind. It happened 4 years ago.

 I work for a county road department in Douglas County Oregon. I was sent out to look for downed trees and slides on the Coos Bay Wagon Road on Wednesday morning after days of heavy rain. Just above Iverson Park around a mile up something ran across the road in front of me. All I can say is it was no normal animal. It looked like and was shaped like a human only covered with wet black matted hair and about double the size of a large person. I didn't see its face but it ran on two legs like a man would. I would guess it was somewhere around 7 to 8 feet tall with a very husky build and long arms. I didn't call it in.

Two years ago a grader operator was plowing snow in that same area when he saw one of these things walk across the road in front of him. He was laughed at for months. I have never believed the stories of Bigfoot but I must say I don't know what else it could have been. It sure looked like what people are reporting seeing on this site. I have to say it really shook me up at the size and speed it crossed the road.

Jim, I do believe that a couple of years ago before all the logging in the Ash Valley section where you go across the bridge on the left, Weyerhauser land, that this area was home to a clan of bigfoot. I was mushroom picking and kept seeing something the color of a bear, standing behind a tree on two legs, swaying back and forth, just watching me.

My partner who was down the road from me came running up to me in a near panic saying he had seen a huge gorilla man type beast walking up a hillside on two legs and was scared to death. He wanted to leave then and there, and just wanted to sit in the van with the doors locked until I was ready to go.

I just kept picking all along for about another 30 minutes, watching this juvenile creature. It was tall but not muscular and huge, go to tree to tree, watching every move I made. I was scared not knowing what it was going to do, but was so mesmerized by just seeing this with my own eyes, just wanted to know how long it would watch.

I had my radio playing and I think that and the way I acted like nothing was there, had its curiosity peaking. I got done, put the mushrooms in the van, and called my partner out to help. When he came out, I told him right where to look and when he saw it, back into the van he leaped and demanded we leave now!

When I got into the van, something let out a scream that to this day I have never heard again in the woods where my buddy was picking, and was answered by the one that was watching me, with a dog monkey bird call that I know that I have heard many times without a thought.

I felt something was telling me to leave, which I did and looked to see if the one watching me was there. He was gone and I dropped some candy bars on the road with intentions to sit and watch, but my buddy wanted to go right now.

I haven't been back since, but will get there this year to see all the logging someone says has happened, probably putting them on the run. My buddy has never been in the woods since that day. I know they exist there! Thanks for commenting, and please keep it up!

This is a true account of a terrifying encounter with Bigfoot. My name is Gloria and have lived in Medford Oregon all my life. I'm now 75 and have retired from teaching for 28 years. When this happened I was 40.

My husband, and three family friends went camping over in Coos County near a place that had the name "Elliott Forest." It was our third night there when things began to happen, loud screams and the sounds of large branches being whipped against something. I was assured by the group it was a cougar off in the distance. 

Something didn't feel right to me. A constant feeling of being watched kept me in high alert mode all day and night. Late this night I was awakened by the loud sound of some gibberish I couldn't understand and the loud sound of footsteps. It was about this time I saw something walk in front of my tent and bend over to look inside. I was beyond terrified at the figure of this massive apelike creature looking at me. I tried to scream but was frozen with fear. It reached inside the tent and grabbed my sleeping bag and started to pull me out of the tent.

My husband woke up and saw the figure outside. He said later it was the horrific smell that woke him up. He yelled "What do you want?" It let go of my bag and turned and walked off while letting out a loud whistling sound. Everyone was now awake and outside looking out into the forest. We could hear this creature breaking branches and raising all hell off in the forest.

It was decided we would all stay close together and keep the fire blazing till dawn. When it was light enough to see we broke camp and left this area. We went to the nearest town called Lakeside. The police didn't  take me or any of the camp party serious even though one was a active policeman. They claimed it had to been a dream. I have never been able to get over this incident. Little doubt in my mind about what this creature was after, Me!

Linda, Ever since I was a small child and saw the Patterson film, every time I was in the woods camping, fishing or driving, I would say to who ever was with me that I wish I could see Bigfoot go across the road in front of me and give me a friendly wave and smile as he goes along his way. I was raised in a family of non-believers who were military lifers, and when our government said something didn't exist, it didn't, no matter how hard we wanted it to as children.

I came to Oregon about 12 years ago and was hiking out in the woods with my fiancee', something I have done all my life and have never had any reason to ever fear the woods. I felt like something was watching me and felt the hair on my neck raise and started looking for a mountain lion or bear. I didn't want to get my girlfriend all upset, but when I pulled my pistol out of my backpack and put it in my coat pocket, she started freaking out. I told her it was just a feeling I had and just relax, but keep your eyes and ears open. We hiked for about another 2 hours and could not get rid of this feeling something was stalking us and I will never forget how quiet the woods were that day

We were down by the river looking for rocks and for some reason I turned and looked back up the trail which we had come down and thought it was a bear coming down to the river. It stopped and stood up on two legs about 70 feet from us and my eyes locked on to its eyes, and could tell what this was the moment I saw it, and the fight or flight feeling came rushing through me.I kept my eyes on it and called to my girlfriend to slowly rise up from looking at rocks in the river and turn around and to be quiet no matter what she sees and to stay still, don't move.

My mind was telling me that this had to be a joke and that these things don't exist, but wouldn't let me relax one minute, while I was studying this huge creature, wondering what my next move was. I grabbed my girlfriend who was shaking violently from shock and fright and started walking down river to the main road where our truck was parked up road a ways. This isn't the friendly Harry and the Hendersen coming to lend me a hand, but a big 8 foot, muscular, wide shoulder beast with the darkest eyes that burned right through me, like I was somewhere he thought was his and for me to get out. We got to the road and could hear something in the woods where we had just come from, but sounded like it was going in the opposite direction. we practically ran to the truck and when we got there the cooler was knocked out the back of the truck and spilled all over the trail head parking place. I grabbed the empty cooler and threw it into the back of the truck , knowing how lucky we were just getting out of there, and neither said a word until we got home and sat in our chairs, still shaking and discussing if she had saw the exact same thing that I had saw.

We never told anyone for a few years and I started researching this beast and it has changed my whole life. I no longer fish, a lifetime love, camp in the woods, hunt, I had a gun, but I couldn't shoot it, and I don't know why.I avoid the woods at all cost and have shared my experience with others that have seen it, and will not be able to have a normal life again until the government tells us this exists and warns people with children out there camping.

There are a lot of people out there that have seen it and stay silent and we all are fans of your web site, so please ignore the media grubbers who must tell lies in order to get people to their sites, where you must pay to read something on the site.You do a great job Linda, and forever a fan of your honesty and artwork, and a admirer of the great web site you maintain.

Barb and Cherry  

Over the weekend my extended family all traveled over to Coos County to visit Dad. Dad lives out in a small community called Dora. He has lived there for 33 years. Early Sunday morning at 5am my sister-in-law and I decided to take the dogs on a early morning walk. The weather was clear and the sun was beginning to rise. We walked along the narrow 2 lane road towards Sitkum. This road follows the East fork of the Coquille River. After walking about 2 miles we noticed the dogs looking over across the river. As we looked over across we caught sight of a dark large manlike figure walking away from the river to behind a tree then up through a patch of ferns into the tree line. On that side of the river the tall tree line comes almost down to the rivers edge and the mountainside is very steep without any roads for access. 

Very quickly we noticed the figure was not human or a bear. It was very large compared to a normal human being and covered with dark black hair except for a thin spot on its right leg. As it walked up the steep mountain it reached out with it large arms grabbing limbs to help pull itself up the incline. We took note the figure had large hands not paws. About this time it let out a loud whistle sound. From somewhere above it began this sound like something beating rocks together. My sister -in-law wanted to run back down the road but I talked her into watching this thing for a while to see if it would turn to look at us.

It paid off. The creature walked some distance then turned to look back at us and the dogs barking. The face of this thing was somewhat human and animal mixed. The skin around its eyes and forehead was dark brown, its face covered with hair except around the eyes and mouth. It had a very large jaws and slightly sloped forehead like a gorilla would have. Right away we knew it had to be a Bigfoot. We noticed no smell but that might be because the breeze was blowing down the river and not at us. W decided we would not call the police and try to explain what we had seen. We did tell Dad and he said the area use to have a family of these animals living up in the forest but he had thought they were all gone by now. We know one is still there maybe more.

I have never put down on paper or discussed my experience with anyone outside my family. My experience took place in Curry County back in the 1990s. I had become somewhat fascinated with the area above Elk River after finding traces of gold up in the headwaters. Over the years I had camped in this region several times panning gold and enjoying the pristine forest. This year I arrived in June and planned to camp till July. I was in fair shape so it was my practice to leave my vehicle and hike deep into the back country.

On these trips I would take only a sleeping bag along with a pack filled with food and pistol and purified water, a change of clothes and a first aid pack. After three days of hiking I came into a interesting area with a rock outcrop on one side with a small creek and a very steep canyon on the other filled with trees. This area had never been logged and was quite inaccessible other than on foot. I set up camp here and started to collect specimens.

On the second day I became aware someone was watching me. You get that feeling sometimes out in the wild. I didn't see anyone for several days. Then one afternoon I just happen to look  good at the soft soil next to the stream. I found two distinct footprints  very large compared to my size 12 boots. I had read about bigfoot but really had no opinion either way on its existence. I was sure this must be what left the prints. Still nothing out of the ordinary happened for over a week, just the persistent feeling of being watched. One day I decided to hike over to Mud Lake to bathe some 7 miles from my camp. Later on in the evening I headed back for camp. It was then I caught sight of someone following me up in the timberline. As I neared the camp this visitor was looking at me from behind a tree. It moved enough for me to make out what it was. It looked to be a mix of ape and human. The coat of hair was completely gray and the hair on the head was gray. It looked to be old. 

Still it had amazing agility for moving very quickly. It followed me back to camp and then disappeared. Over the next two weeks I saw it on different occasions watching me at the creek. It never came close enough to make me feel threatened. When I broke camp it followed me for over 10 miles just watching me as I left the area. Finally it stopped following and disappeared. I felt then and now it was merely curious about my presence in his habitat.
