An Encounter From 1976, Oregon
Anyone that says "I want to see a bigfoot up close" isn't really thinking the whole thing out. For many years I had wondered why so many people that claimed to see bigfoot out in the wild always told of the bigfoot staring them down then leaving as quickly as it appeared. For years I wondered if my encounter in 1976 was more violent because of the actions I chose to take. I guess Ill never know for sure.
One early morning, I had left to go fly fishing at a remote stream that I've fished for many years. The stream is located in a deep gorge by which you have to walk down this trail to access. The trail is probably two miles long. When I reached the stream below the falls I began fly fishing. Within a few minutes I began to feel that someone was watching me from across the stream. This didn't make sense to me because there's no trail access on that side at all.

The feeling just seemed to be getting stronger as I fished. I had just landed a nice cutthroat trout and I happen to catch some movement out of the corner of my eye. As I looked up I dropped my fly rod. I was absolutely shocked and terrified at the creature standing not 30 feet away downstream. There it was just swaying back and forth from side to side.

What is wasn't is what's the kicker. Something that appeared to be a gigantic apelike wildman, covered in a dark brown to black crop of hair. [Could this read: Here's the kicker: What 
"Is" wasn't suppose to be, but here stood a gigantic apelike wildman, covered in a dark brown to black crop of hair.]

This creature absolutely was double my build. It must have been over several hundred pounds and over eight feet tall. Its black eyes seemed to burn right into to me. I still don't know how much time passed as it stood there staring but  all I could think of is "this is it for me." I was too scared to run or even breath. Finally panic set in and I jumped into the stream thinking the deep fast moving water would carry me swiftly downstream and away from the frightful creature. I didn't care where I ended up just away from this monster.

As the water rushed me past the creature I could see it was now running along the edge of the stream at a speed no human could run. This seemed to go on till the stream made a turn.

I was nearly drowned but thankfully happened to catch the limb of a log that had fell across the stream. I must have blanked out because the next thing I know I was crawling up a steep cliff to a road.

After what seemed to be hours a pickup truck came by with one man in it. I told him I had fallen into the river because I didn't want to try to explain the bigfoot to him. He took me back up the road to my pickup which was about 5 miles upstream from where I jumped in.

I left my fly rod, creel and fish at the stream and had no intentions of going back down there. I have never went back to that fishing hole. Stream: South Fork Coquille River, Place: Coquille River Falls July 18 1976.

I don't know ...

Today is Saturday and what a beautiful day it is in Oregon. I wonder what the bigfoots are doing. Maybe the water is warm enough for them to take a bath. It could be the sun is just warm enough to toast their big noses. Who knows. Have you seen a bigfoot lately or know someone who has? If so comment. ... Have a grand day. ... Linda Newton-Perry

In August of 2014, a team of researchers spent over a month along Garage Creek and Lost Creek deep in the forests east of Coquille. There was a team of five of us and we camped throughout the forest in order to attempt establishing observation points. Our intent was to observe and record any evidence of Sasquatch. We spent over 6 weeks in the forest and established our observation points, which we will keep confidential at this point.

We recorded no evidence until September, at the very end of our time in the forest. We were breaking down camp early in the morning, preparing to leave the area with the intent to return in the spring of 2015. We were camping around extremely large trees and something kept shaking the trees from a high location. We looked up and tried to determine what was causing the trees to shake from such a high location. The wind was not blowing and the air was calm. 

Finally, one of our researchers saw the cause of the shaking through her binoculars. “I see it! There are 2 high up in the trees! We found them! We found them!” she shouted in a whisper, trying to contain her excitement. High up in the trees were two very large sasquatchs swaying and staring down at us.
It was if we were watching them in slow motion-the experience was so surreal. 

We observed them as quietly as we could. They both stayed very still for what seemed like an hour, glaring at us. Finally they leaped effortless to nearby trees. They leaped from massive tree to massive tree and escaped our view. We attempted to follow them, but we very quickly lost track of them. We have members of our group who have theorized these animals spend time in the trees, but we can now confirm their theories correct.

We will be returning to our observation points in 2015 with a new mode of research, given this new information about this majestic animal.

What I've learned about bigfoot since 2009

From Our Archive Section

 Number 108

 In 2005, a group of us spent many months researching in Oregon’s remote southeast expanses. We spent time in various areas researching wildlife, both plant and animal life. We eventually began researching the Siskiyou Mountain area.

One evening, we found a brushy area along the mountainside. We heard some aggressive sounds and paused to take a closer look. Within the brush we could see several caves that were fairly well hidden from view. The noises were coming from these caves. We noticed, about 40 feet away, something large glaring in our direction.

We were not sure what this thing was, but it was most definitely standing on two legs. The animal held its gaze for a moment, then charged. It was a very frightening moment for us all until we realized the animal wasn’t charging at us. It barreled through the brush into the back of another, similar animal, knocking it onto the ground. Both animals rolled out of the brush and we could see them both more clearly. They had black fur like a chimpanzee. They were chimpanzee like, and human like, but much larger than either. 

The larger of the two animals locked its jaws around the thumb of the other animal’s left hand ferociously. The smaller animal grabbed the larger one with its free right arm in a half-bear hug. In an attempt to free itself, the small animal chomped onto the face of the larger animal. We were far too worried about our own safety to remain. We quickly retreated to safety, all the while hearing the most horrific screams of the two animals in the distance.

I never thought such a creature as Sasquatch exists. But I know they exist after that experience. I think they may be like other great apes, like chimpanzees. They seem docile, but can be very dangerous.

A Note From Linda Newton-Perry

Chris, my husband, and I have often gone hiking in the forest searching for bigfoot. We've rented a small plane to fly over the forest where bigfoot has been seen. My son and I stayed at the Oregon Caves, hiked the Big Tree Trail searching for bigfoot. (We think we heard and smelled the animal at the Caves.) We've explored several areas where bigfoot has been seen. We think we've photographed the tracks of bigfoot. I wrote a bigfoot newspaper column for several years. I've written short stories on the subject and  several children's bigfoot books and one fiction adult book.

For the life of me, I don't know why I was drawn into this subject. After all, bigfoot is a huge, a stinky, and sometimes a dangerous animal. I don't want to see it too close. 

Anyway, I'll soon be moving on to other subjects I believe much more important than bigfoot. Comment please. I do enjoy hearing from the readers of this site.

Some times it’s harder to tell of a past experience if you have never got over it. That's my case because I've never forgotten or really been able to talk or tell people about my encounter with what had to be an adult Sasquatch.

Though it’s been 12 years since the day I had the encounter, it’s still hard to talk about. I guess I need to start at the very beginning of the day. I was camped out in the high mountains north of Brookings Oregon. It was my practice to take a week off in OCT to camp and do some fly fishing and hunting. I had been going into this area since 1974. This time I had planned to fly fish in a stream that I've been to over thirty times since I was a youngster. It was always a good fishing stream and the wildlife was always abundant. The stream feeds into Pistol River some 25 miles downstream.

This trip was like all the others till I started getting the sensation that someone was watching me at the camp and also near the stream. The feeling got stronger by the fourth day and I had also began to hear some strange snapping sounds of somebody walking around my camp but never coming close enough for me to see them. I knew it wasn't regular wildlife because you could hear the distinct sound of a two-legged person walking and snapping the underbrush.
I had called out several times for whoever it was to "come on in and have some coffee with me." It was really getting on my nerves after 2 days of the sounds, usually after midnight.
This night I decided to leave the Coleman lantern burning so I placed it on the top of my makeshift table made from some tree branches. I went to bed and around 10pm the sounds began to get louder. I was very still and after maybe an hour it came walking very slowly into the camp.

When I first saw what it looked like I quietly grabbed my rifle next to me in case it came at me. It was something like a big wild man but not really human. It looked over my camp very good and seemed to be after food. It licked a skillet I had left on the table with bacon grease covered with foil. It seemed to be fascinated with the foil because it held it up several times looking at the light from the lantern shine on it. The creature was covered in black hair or fur except around its eyes and inside of its hands. It walked erect like a human only with long and glide like steps. Before it left the camp it looked through my can goods but never took any. I was sure if I would have fired at it I could have killed it but something inside me said no because it’s not after me. It seemed to act like it was part ape or primitive human. I don't think I could ever have lived with myself if I had killed or injured it.

I used to get mad when people winked and laughed when I told them about all the evidence we now have that points to bigfoot being real. It doesn't bother me anymore because you find the people that are doing the laughing are people that need the government to show them the way through life.

I worked my entire life outdoors in the forest. In all of those years I never saw a bigfoot. Then one early morning in 1988 I was hunting deer and this gigantic apelike creature walked swiftly across the road right in front of me. The odor from this creature gave me a very sick feeling. It was the most pungent smell I've ever experienced. Remembering back in my working days, I had smelled this same odor several times in the woods and always put it off as a dead animal carcass somewhere nearby.

People don't realize that bigfoot is real because TV shows and movies have made it more like some man eating monster that stalks the human race in the forest. Then people watch some of the bigfoot hunter/investigators characters on TV and people believe their merely on something. In my opinion the TV shows surely haven't helped to convince anyone these creatures are real. Too many people want their ten minutes of fame on TV and this makes the general public skeptic.

Now, if a person wants to do some real reading into the evidence they soon become very much amazed that this creature has been longer than modern man probably has and has for the most part kept themselves hid from people. I have seen one so I know their real, but to many friends of mine bigfoot is just some Indian legend. They refuse to admit it’s real because they would need to alter the way they look at life and people don't like change as a rule

And then we have our government lying about what they know because of economics. Bigfoot can survive without us putting aside more forest to live in. We already know this because there still out there living. What people need to do is read all the evidence that is in many good books about bigfoot and then they might not be so quick to laugh.

I really enjoy reading about bigfoot sightings on this Bigfoot Ballyhoo. It’s so refreshing to have information without all the foul language so many allow on their sites. I never disagree with anyone's views on bigfoot but I’ll make one exception on the article below on the color of bigfoot changes their demeanor.
He states that only the dark ones are dangerous. Not true. In 1960 I was chased by a yellowish colored one and darn near got it. I had accidentally got in between her and a youngster. She chased me, threw a huge chunk of wood, and literally raised all hell until I finally got out of there by running over a mile from the sighting area.

 It scared me so bad it was 13 years before I went camping again. I was taking a morning walk with my dog when she appeared from a steep ravine and chased me off. This was at Laird Lake in Curry County in southern Oregon. I know now she was just protecting her young but still people need to understand these creatures are completely wild and can be dangerous if the situation is right.

  In 2009 at Diamond Lake my family was spending five days snowmobiling in the back country between MT Thielsen and Three Fingered Jack. On one of the daily trips we came upon some scat along the route that looked to be fresh, still steaming and of large size. My brother is a MD and he said it was deposited no longer than 10 minutes prior to our finding it.

We looked around the forest and found some large tracks human shaped and about 17 inches long and 7 wide at the ball. Snow can really change the actual size when melting so we didn't have any way of knowing the original size. As we went on up the snow trail my daughter, age 41, spotted a very large object moving swiftly through the trees alongside the trail. The object was very dark colored. She motioned for me to stop and told me what she had seen. We talked about the probability it was a bear but she insisted it was walking upright.

Anyway we continued up the mountain till the snow began getting too deep for our snowmobiles. We all decided to turn around and start back down using the north route. It was then we all saw a very large apelike animal or primate walk out from behind a clump of trees. This creature, animal or whatever it was looked very large and covered in black and spots of silver fur or hair. The thing was walking upright like a human but had long and massive arms longer than humans. It looked to be a mixture of gorilla and human. Its large black eyes were set deep in the head. The back of the head crowned like apes do.

We all got a good look before it tore off into the forest. All agreed it was at least 8 or 9 feet tall and several hundred pounds heavy. Not one of us in the family ever believed in Sasquatch. It was quite an earth shattering wake up call that we humans really don't know what's out there in our forest and world. As this animal left it literally walked into a small tree 10 foot high and snapped it like a small twig.

We left the area promptly and reported our sighting to the ranger at the lake. As far as we know this animal is still roaming about in the cascades of Oregon. The ranger just took down our information and that was it.

On the morning of July 11th, we were on board a Jerry's Charter boat taking the beautiful trip up to Agness Oregon from Gold Beach. When we got to about the half way point at Boiler Riffle we saw a large upright creature or animal going from the river bar into the forest.

At first we thought it was a very big black bear but very soon seen it wasn't a bear. It looked like the Patterson film creature but was somewhat larger we think. We tried to get a snapshot but the thing was much to quick and we were to slow. The operator told us he had seen several of them along the river over a period of 15 years. He said it was a Bigfoot.

It was covered in a blackish brown hair. The arms swung low on its sides. We could see the upper part of the creature was very wide and well built. Evidently they, the Bigfoot's, come down to the river after dark to drink. One couple from San Francisco said they had never believed anything they ever heard about bigfoot until now. Another couple claimed to have seen a different Bigfoot 2 years earlier on this same river only up closer to Agness.

When we got up to the Cougar Lane Lodge we told several people what we had seen and none of them were one bit surprised and said it happens from time to time. We are from North Carolina and really loved your beautiful state and want to come back soon. Seems that God has blessed the state of Oregon. You are lucky to have such a wonderful place to live.

My Local TV Station

I just called my local TV station. I wanted to know what would they do if a a bigfoot was dead in the bed of a truck, parked, right now, in their parking lot. Would they go out and look at it?  Would it make the evening news?

The man I talked to said he'd for sure go look and take photos. But making the news was the job of the news manager, or title close to news manager. 

Hope you call your local station and ask these questions.

Have you ever been in a situation where you know you're  in trouble? I have and this is my story. I have never been a Bigfoot person. I certainly never expected to ever see one. Last month I was camping with my sister and her husband in southwestern Oregon. They had talked me in to a camping trip because I've had trouble dealing with my husband's death in March

We were in a very remote part of the coast range fishing in a lake that my sister and hubby had found some 20 years ago. You have to hike in as there's no roads to it. My sister wanted to hike down to the SUV and go into Gold Beach to restock our food supply. I didn't want to go to town so her husband decided he would go.

My plan was to stay at camp and read some magazines I had brought. They left camp at 7 in the morning. After breakfast I walked around the lake and took pictures of the lake and surroundings. I was just about half way when I began to notice a strange sound coming from off in the distance. It was a very low whoop, whoop, whoop sound. I really didn't know what it was at first. The whooping sound became louder as I walked very slowly on the trail. 

It sounded like a owl but much too low a tone for one. The sounds finally died out as I walked. Then a sudden feeling of fear came over me because I felt someone was either following me or watching me. I looked around very close and didn't see anything. Then came this sound of someone walking near or on the trail I had just passed on. I could hear this sound of someone walking and stopping to break what I think were tree branches.

 I began to run down the trail . Whatever was out there really started picking up its pace too. In a complete panic I yelled "please leave me alone." I kept running till I was near the camp again. When I got back at camp the tent had been pulled down on the ground. Cooler was open and two cans of Pepsi had been smashed . Sugar had been ripped open and scattered about. Some energy bars were missing also. The ground was hard and no tracks anywhere.

I got my pistol out of the tent and set down on a chunk of wood we had cut for chairs. I happen to look off to my right and really got a shock. An  animal moved from behind a tree onto the trail and out of sight. It was a huge hair-covered apelike creature covered in brown hair and walking upright. I could make out it was at least 8 feet tall and super husky. I held the gun hoping it would not come closer to camp. It didn't.

I could hear it leaving because it was what was making the whopping sound. After an hour I made my way down the trail to where the SUV had been parked. There I stayed till my sister and husband showed up at 3 PM. Nobody will ever believe what I saw so I didn't report it. Calvin my brother-in-law said it had to be a Bigfoot I saw. He went up to the camp and packed everything up and we got out of there.

I don't know if I will ever camp out again. Though it never did attack or try to hurt me it scared the daylights out of me.

During the 80s after the St. Helens eruption I hauled logs out of the blast zone. Though the area was destroyed, some areas to the west and south were not touched by the blast. We had just finished a job on Weyco property and moved our small fleet of trucks to Cougar Washington. After a couple of days we took a small job further up on the river. One morning I was sitting inside my truck waiting for the truck ahead of me to pass when I saw something cross the narrow roadway and disappeared into the timber. It looked somewhat like a primitive man only it was about twice the size of modern man. As it crossed it looked at me and I could see it had been close to the blast zone at some point in time because its skin around the face looked to be scorched. It didn't look to be in pain it just had been burnt at sometime. I told a fellow trucker about what I saw and I was surprised to hear two others had seen the Bigfoot but with a female and youngster. So I'm guessing some of the Bigfoots made it through the eruption.

This is a very interesting encounter. What we know about bigfoot is very limited indeed. One thing I have come to know is for some reason the bigfoots in the area of southern Oregon seem to have been violent towards humans. Story after story tells of these giant apelike creature killing humans in this region. The Chetco River monster, Sixes Wildman and the Zane Gray story of the Almeda miners all tell of fatal attacks from these giant creatures.

I was told by a historian of that area that several other encounters ended the same way but didn't get recorded into any type of news. The Rogue River Indians told of violent large creatures killing children and lone hunters for over 150 years. Many stories told of these upright beings attacking small groups of settlers for unknown reasons.

One story in particular tells of a family named Ramsey that built a cabin up in the Wildhorse Area in or around 1900. They were all found dead by trappers. Their bodies had been mutilated by some unknown beast that apparently used a large tree limb to kill them. It was said large manlike tracks were everywhere around the cabin and remains. I visited the area in 1990 where the family was killed and found no remains of a cabin other than a rock fireplace and chimney still present. Later I talked with the Curry County Historical Society and the records show they never found what killed the family but a notation was present as they most likely were killed by unknown animal or animals.

Linda Perry, My dad's name was Frank Wilson. He was born at home in a small cabin in Josephine County in 1921. His older brother Henry and he hunted the area between Galice and Agness for 50 years or better. In 1943 they were hunting up in the headwaters of Galice Creek and had a nasty run-in with a bigfoot. Dad never forgot his only encounter with bigfoot up to his death in 1961. They had shot a buck earlier in the morning and hung it up to cool on a tree limb. He first became aware of something off in the brush watching them when he was making supper ready. Both Dad and Henry said they felt that something was stalking them the day before just out of sight but close enough for them to hear growls and brush being whipped around.

They had never caught sight of the animal that was following them but knew it wasn't a quote "normal animal" that they had run across before. Anyway later that night about dusk the sounds became down right scary. Dad said the unknown stalker howled very loud screams that became nerve shattering. Both of them were really concerned whatever this thing was it was getting more aggressive with tree 
limbs and brush.

They had enough and decided to move the camp about a mile down the creek. When they packed up they had to leave the deer till one or both of them could come back and get it. Dad made the hike back to the old camp and found the deer pulled down off the tree and absolutely mangled. Dad said both back quarters had been literally ripped of the deer. It was then Dad did a really stupid thing according to him. He decided he would look for the remains and find out what took it. As he followed a game trail up the mountain he caught sight of an enormous size animal that looked like a big ape squatting down and tearing meat off a hind quarter of his deer.

Dad said he had never in his life seen such a creature. It was very husky and covered with hair and had hands and feet like a human but still no part human. As soon at it seen him it stood up and let out a horrific scream. Dad turned and ran as fast as he could towards the old camp. He was sure this was it and the creature would certainly kill him. All that Dad remembered next was apparently being grabbed and thrown into a big fir. Dad hit the tree with such force he felt his ribs and left arm break. He knew he was done for. As he looked up he saw the giant creature looking at him from just twenty feet away. He watched the hairy beast as it looked at him with dead dark eyes. Thank god Uncle Henry yelled out for dad. When he did the sasquatch turned and disappeared into the trees. Dad told me he knew the sasquatch was going to finish him off right before Uncle Henry's yell. Of course Dad was scared and may have thought the worst. Neither he nor Henry ever saw the strange hair covered creature again.

I stumbled into this subject of bigfoot and enjoy providing this blog for people to talk about their sightings and concerns about the animal. Chris and I have gone into the forest often searching for signs of this animal. I can tell you I don't want to round a bend and there stands a bigfoot. Oh, no! It would scare me to death.

Of all the sighting 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 my 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.


Thank you for taking the time to share your sighting. ... Linda Newton-Perry

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 it's 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. 


Thank you for your opinions and sighting. ... LNP

Aggie has left a new comment on your post "Change It!":

Reasonable? Whats that? Anything government get involved in surly wont be reasonable in the end. The ESA was wrote to assure that protection gave every listing a excellent chance to survive. You cant go in and say 'well we need to protect them but lets not do it if it effects other species." It is a last ditch effort to save the species. Maybe you people living in logging land need to find some other way to make your money. 


Thanks for the comment. And to change careers in 'logging land' is 'easier said than done'!... LNP

Change It!

Anonymous has left a new comment on your post "An Opinion":

If you read the entire Endangered Species Act you will find it can't be changed altered nor minimized. It was enacted by science and environmental groups to keep a species from extinction. It clearly states that in no way can economics be a factor in listings of endangered animal,mammals and such. 


It is not even 'reasonable' for something this important to be unchangeable! There must be safeguards etc. ... LNP

An Opinion

In the United States, to protect our environment/economy the law on endangered species should be changed to a more reasonable plan.  ... Linda Newton-Perry

It is overreaction on the part of the author. This is a comment from a person on YouTube.  Mr. Wheeler I can assure you Tom is not overreacting. He didn't begin to cover all the effects of a listing. If you lived in Washington, Oregon or California you know what devastating effect the government had on the spotted owl. He didn't talk about many small towns that were wiped out economically never to come back. He didn't talk about the effects on public land had on the huge destructive fires we see by leaving them in a natural state. Oh no he didn't over react. Ask the thousands of people who were in the cross hairs of the marbled murrlet(spelling)? or spotted owl.

Tom, thank you very much for the info. I have said for years nature will protect most things without human intervention. Bigfoot seems to be fine without human help so I say let them roam free and let's all work on more important things.We know for the most part Bigfoot stays away from humans. Humans seem to be every wild animals worst fear. Admitting Bigfoot real shouldn't have any measure on humans but in this day and age of political correctness we can't do anything other than hurt ourselves.

Squatchingirl is missing the point. In every case in the last 100 years when an animal is protected it cost thousands of people there livelihood. The mere listing of the Northern Spotted Owl cost in excess of 200,000 jobs just in a three state square over a period of 10 years and still to this day has untold effects on citizens. Those jobs will never come back. The cascade affect was tremendous closing schools, wiping out funds for law enforcement and thousand of mom and pop stores. Drug abuse and domestic violence went through the roof. Thousands of hard working families  lost everything including their homes. It is very easy to say "nobody has the right to hide earths animal nobody." Well we've seen the collapse of the lumber industry over a small and rare bird. Can you imagine what a listing of a large primate type animal would do? Even if there is only one hundred Sasquatchs still alive the listing would tear this county up.

 Vast amount of lands would be deemed off limits. It WOULD NOT JUST AFFECT THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST. IT WOULD BE NATION WIDE. Millions of acres of land, forest, farm and rural areas would be affected. National parks would be affected like Yosemite and Yellowstone. Sasquatch would be considered far up the food chain from a bird. The endangered species act states: No species within the listing will be exempt from full protection, under no circumstance will protection be altered for economical gain. Listing must protect all KNOWN native land and food sources. Under no circumstance can congress remove listing TILL adequate recovery as specified by biology be established. Said listing cannot be below the standard 10 years for reasonable growth.

Do you want to destroy the country for an hairy animal that may or may not remain anyway? What if they are proven to be related to primates? Then we really have problems headed our direction.

Thank you Tom for your comment. You have given us much to think about. ... I did read this on a video for Youtube. ... Linda Newton-Perry

Just for fun.

(BBLFR: Sure we have the right to hide Bigfoot from the public. It is a dangerous situation when you have humans and Bigfoot together. People will not stop hunting the animal so we need to keep Bigfoot in myth only, and then try to contain people from the areas where the animal might be in. If they exist they will be gone before long anyway.)

I understand, and have thought of this. However, no one has "the right" to keep lying to the general public to "protect" us. You have the right to Life, Liberty & the Pursuit of Happiness and that's it. I don't want anyone else telling me what my "rights" are. That should be my decision as to how I want to deal with the truth. I think more harm could possibly come from not being aware of what really is out there. As to your last question, it's already happening, it's just being swept under the rug or kept quiet possibly to protect the big $$$$ that would be lost should something like this be "discovered." It's always about the $$$$.


Thank you for your comment. ... Linda Newton-Perry

Please contact me so this story can be examined in more detail. My goal is to prove then protect bigfoot. 


I'm sorry but I can't help you. My site does not require names. Thank you for coming to Bigfoot Ballyhoo. ... LNP

Animals and humans can NOT reproduce. SO, bigfoot is not a primitive man or man/animal combination.

They are not our cousins.They are a wild animal and nothing more. No they are not gaining population. Most of the sightings are mis-identification of bears or hoaxes. Seems like people make fantastic claims about Bigfoot. I watched a video the other day with a couple that claimed they invited a large male over for dinner and he brought flowers for the woman!

We do not easily coexist with our large hairy cousins but have managed to do so for thousands of years. Their numbers appear to be increasing due, primarily, to expanding food supply. They're not going anywhere so we will have to make some kind of accommodation on their behalf, just as we have for many other species and their habitat.

BBLFR might sound brazen but we know the government has successfully hid Sasquatch from the public eye for over 100 years. I sure don't want to see land closed off to protect more animals. Have you ever thought of this? Bigfoot might be dangerous to humans by means of diseases humans have no immunity too.I think people need to keep the Bigfoot sightings as they are (Maybe true or Maybe not true). They must be in a very small population by 2016.They can't sustain themselves for much longer because of humans intervention out in the rural areas with housing. Do you want to live in a world where thousands of giant apes wander loose?

Almeda Mine and Bigfoot

Guest Editor-Blogger Dr. Issac S has this to say:

The Sasquatch legend is as old as the history of the Oregon territory itself. But as a few miners of Almeda mine near Galice, Oregon found out in 1922, the legend can turn out to be a nightmare. 

Early in the spring of 1922 the Almeda Mine was a constant source of ore for the hungry ING Mining Co. of Denver. They employed over 230 men to mine the ore. Some of these miners decided that maybe they could find their own ore deposits on down the river. One morning five of them set out to try their luck.

The miners headed into the vast forest of the Rouge River wilderness. After looking for two weeks some of them decided that prospecting wasn't for them. They left to return to Galice in hopes of getting their jobs back.

Somewhere along the trail back, something took place that most men can only imagine. One of the miners returned to Galice to tell of his friends being attacked by giant forest monsters. The miner insisted that three of his comrades had been killed by two giant ape-men looking creatures.

A search party was quickly dispatched to the area to stop the flood of wild tales that would certainly spread and make miners quit by the scores. After a week of travel the search party found two of the three missing men dead of an apparent savage attack on them from some unknown animals of the forest. The third man was nowhere to be found. Only part of his pants and hat were still present at the sight. The ground was moist and showed footprints of enormous sizes all around the men's bodies. 

After looking for the missing man the search party returned to Galice with the packs of the dead men. The foreman at the mine told the men to keep quiet about their find or lose their jobs. The searchers went back to work in the mine and nothing was ever said.

The man that returned with the story disappeared and thus the story was hushed until Zane Grey a resident of Galice wrote about it in a magazine.
