Advice

In the woods live lions and bears and you'd be surprised at what else lives there.  Parents talk to your children about all the dangers of the woods. Even if you do not believe in bigfoot there are many animals that can hurt our children! ...LNP

Chetco Area Fire

A fire is now raging in the above area. A few years ago a truck-load of forest workers observed a bigfoot in the area of this bridge. A police officer was called and he also observed the animal walking toward him on this bridge. . He fired his gun and it moved quickly off the bridge and  into the brush. Also this is near the area where Bill Emery and team observed a bigfoot  and their trail cam snapped photos. Also the Columbus Day animal was found not far from this area. Since a fire is in the area, bigfoots may be running and could be harmed. If you should hear of a bigfoot sighting or body found, please let us know. Comment please.

Chetco River in Ivan T. Sanderson's Book.



The following excerpt from the book, Abominable Snowmen: Legend Come to Life by Ivan T. Sanderson. It is one of my favorite bigfoot books. It mentions the Chetco River, I assume it is the same river area where Cory had his sighting.


This would be in the year 1890 at a place on the Chetco River about the border between California and Oregon It appears that about that date and thereabouts, the citizenry had been bothered for some time by really gigantic foot racks that looked, according to the contemporary records, just like those that would be left by enormous naked human feet, which passed back and forth from the forests to the seashore. Then things began to happen at a mining camp some 50 miles inland. Large objects were moved at night and there were unpleasant noises, all naturally attributed to marauding bears, until one fine morning when, after a particularly rambunctious night, during which somebody fired at something, two sets of large human-type tracks showed up all around the camp. A posse was organized and tracked these for a long way into the forest but eventually gave up. A short time later, however, a man was chased into camp by something very large, the looks of which he did not wait to investigate. A watch was set: two men at a time, for a few hours each. Then it happened.

One couple going to relieve a watch found their two companions dead and really grossly mutilated. They had in fact been literally smashed and apparently by being picked up and slammed repeatedly onto the ground so that they looked as if they had fallen off a high cliff onto rocks.

Interesting story, but the year is wrong...In 1844 there were very few whites & no railroads yet in Oregon.The first wagon trains had not even started..The Chetco killings were in the 1890s which leads me to believe that the years of the described killings was 1894..

The date could be wrong but the first railroad that came to Oregon was in 1840. SS&T had a timber rail
up to present day Roseburg to haul lumber down to SF Cal.

The Old Days of Bigfoot

Back in 1958 Bigfoot was just another legend that was talked about around the Indian community. Then in 1958 Gerry Crew found large footprints on a new timber access road in Northern California.

In 1844 David Hamlin a railroad employee for the Oregon Pacific Railway found himself embroiled in a mystery.

Three employees had been found dead by Hamlin near what is now Glendale, Oregon of an apparent animal of unusual size and strength. The men were found torn to pieces from some unknown beast. Workers reported they found barefoot tracks of 19 inches and more all around the bodies.

Hamlin then hired trackers to track this beast down and kill it, but to no avail. Trackers reported that they followed the big tracks for over four days only to lose them in a heavy rain storm.

The beast was never found and Hamlin was fired by the railroad. One year later the Chetco Monster began a rampage.

The Chetco and Glendale sites were only 120 miles apart. Could it have been the same ill tempered beast?who knows, but it's food for thought.

Thank you so much for this information. This is one of the things that worries me, when the police do not take these sightings seriously: What if a diseased animal causes a death or property damage? Isn't it best that a record of the sighting be available?

Chetco Area Fire

Gun Fired

Thanks for the chance to tell my story to someone. On December 14th 2009 while on patrol near Carpenderville in Curry Co. I received a call to proceed to mile post twenty four on the Forest Service Road, Pairsoll Peak near the south fork of the Chetco River.

At 1422 hrs I arrived at the south fork bridge. There I was to investigate a report by cellphone that six loggers in a crew wagon had seen a big animal of unknown species on the bridge looking over the side. After taking their reports I told them they could go on home.

I walked across the bridge on foot and walked along the road looking for any signs. There it was, a blackish hairy animal of immense size standing upright looking straight at me from the river bank. I drew my weapon and shot once in the air to stop its forward movement towards me.

The eight to ten foot apelike thing whirled around and walked off into the treeline near the water. Stunned, I returned to pickup. I called it in and was told to return to the Gold Beach Station. I had no choice but to report seeing a Sasquatch-Bigfoot type animal.

I had to see a goof ball shrink before going back to work

A Bigfoot Throws a Rock

 An older comment from July 2016
I'm re posting it because where it takes place is an absolutely beautiful area. My husband and I hiked this trail a summer or two ago and just loved it. Do make an effort to hike it yourself. Right now, Aug. 2017, the area  has been shut down because of fires. Check before you make plans. ... LNP

 
I recently started researching where I could see if others have experienced what I did... so I found through my research your Youtube channel Linda, and you talked about a sighting from 2012 from steamboat. Well first I would like to say I didn't believe and thought this was all bs...until July 4th 2016. A friend and I hiked up Fall Creek Falls off of hwy 138 past Glide Oregon. We hiked to the very top and walked past some houses which were owned by XXXXXX XXXX. We continued past his house and ended up on BLM I believe. The sun was starting to set so we turned around and started back. After about a mile, I heard this loud growl and it startled the both of us. I looked up this hill to my right and there stood a hairy upright animal and had to be around 8 foot just staring at us. We started to walk faster more of a sprint and and a rock came crashing down towards us. I believe whatever it was threw that huge rock at us. I've never been more scared in my life but I now know bigfoot/sasquatch or whatever you call it does truly exist. ... I'm still shaken over the encounter.

This is the bigfoot that Emery and Parchell observed...

Emery has three more photos of this bigfoot that he claims  are very clear. He decided not to share the photos with the public. He was threatened by a government agency, or a person that worked for a government agency, that if he released these photos to the public,  he could be sued. He told us here at Ballyhoo that securing these photos took an awfully lot of money and he didn't wish to spend more. ... LNP (Oh yes, I drew the broken line around the bigfoot, so you could see it better.)

In Case You Didn't Know...

This site, Bigfoot Ballyhoo, was started because I needed material for a weekly bigfoot newspaper column I wrote for our local paper (at one time the column was in three local papers). The late Dale Saxton read the newspaper column and often commented on Bigfoot Ballyhoo. After his death his friend Bill Emery started commenting. He wanted to continue the bigfoot research he and his friend Saxton enjoyed.  Dale Saxton never saw a bigfoot. Finally Bill Emery observed a bigfoot one early morning, Aug. 8, 2010. He was not alone when he saw the animal; the late Hank Parchell also saw it.

I'll answer just so many questions!

A QUESTION FOR LINDA

WHEN DID YOU FIRST LEARN OF BIGFOOTS/SASQUATCHS? 

We moved to Oregon in 1969. I'd never heard of the animal until we'd been  in Oregon for a few years. So I can't tell you exactly when I first heard of it. 

WHERE DID YOU MOVE FROM?

Kansas

KANSAS!

Yes Kansas. And that's about all I'm going to tell you.

Blackberries are Ripe on the Bush

Bigfoot

As you can see from new header above, bigfoot 'lives green'. We here at Bigfoot Ballyhoo realize many people observe this animal in the wild but do not share the sighting. Here at this site you do not have to give your name to report a sighting. You can talk as much as you like about your sighting. We do not allow nasty remarks (comments) to mar your joy of sharing your experience. We want you to know we realize it is a very special experience to observe one of these majestic beings. SO TALK AWAY. WE ARE HERE TO LISTEN! (WELL, READ, TO BE MORE EXACT.) LNP

Bigfoot is a Wild Animal

Thank You Sara

Guest Editor/Blogger: Sara
 #120 Archive Section

Bigfoot is well known to become violent when humans encroach on their territory. Blackberries along with any wild fruit is the Bigfoot's main dietary intake in the summer and fall months. In fact they cant survive without the antioxidants provided by berries. I observed one female Bigfoot actually gathering berries and placing them in what looked to be deer hide that had been made into a primitive looking basket. I filmed her for 27 minutes and then turned the film over to the biologist inside the district that I work at by order given to me by my supervisor. This isn't the first time this Bigfoot has been filmed. She was filmed for 11 mins in 1996. In the 96 film I'm told she has a very young infant she gently held in her arm. I will say this happened in southwestern Oregon but I cant say anymore. I hope and pray the U.S Forest Service will one day let the public know what we know on Warning from Forest Service Employee (Older Comment)

A Message

Hi Everyone, Just wanted to say that I've been going through the hard copies of sightings/comments on this site. My, there have been a lot of sightings of this animal. 

I'd like to say, if you readers would comment more, I'd do better with publishing things here on the site. It gets mighty boring not hearing  from you. So please think about leaving a comment, even if it is just to say Hi. 

Best regards,
Linda Newton-Perry

Bigfoot and Blackberries

Psst... Here's something you should know. Bigfoot loves blackberries. And the blackberries are sweetening on the vine as I type this.

Warning from Forest Service Employee (Older Comment)

A COMMENT TO THIS SITE: JUNE 22, 2012

A WARNING!


Linda, I am presently working in the xxxxxxx District of USFS. Last week we had a  meeting with some upper officials inside this agency on the potential threat of the animal coined "xxxxxxxx" to the visiting public in this forest district. This meeting was to lay out facts on the safety concerns about the unknown danger and risks of this animal. Over the last two months three people have had a close brush with the same animal. Separate descriptions given to us verify this. I believe we need to come clean and alert the public on the behavior of this individual animal. 

We listened to xxxxxxx xxxxxx's thoughts that this problem is going to turn even more dangerous as the summer season starts. I for one agree that we need to post warning signs in the areas of concern. We have great concern that small children might be in extreme danger if the animal approaches them. The meeting never addressed what exactly we're dealing with as far as a classification of animal.  At the end of the meeting the upper officials decided not to alert the public and to try to downplay any danger. Also they want to continue the claim that people are simply seeing a bear and taking it for a bigfoot. 

Thank you for your interest in public safety. The vast majority of us believe we are dealing with a new found animal or some form of mountain ape  not yet confirmed. We can only hope that the visiting public can get information from an outside source other that USFS. 

(You may publish this letter without any names of anyone mentioned here for the visiting public safety in our forest.)
