Local Residents Spot Bigfoot In West Virginia… and 2012

Happy Holidays!

A recent sighting report in an article written, for a change, factually and not in a tongue-in-cheek manner. Bless those in the media who write news as news and not as sensationalistic commentary.

Local Residents Spot Bigfoot In West Virginia

The following is unrelated to bigfoot… I think… but it’s another interest of mine so I thought I’d share. I’ve been reading quite a bit about 2012 lately. ‘Tis the season, after all.

This webpage from NASA is interesting. It discusses the science behind the internet sensationalism surrounding December 21, 2012 that has been increasing in the past few years.

Between the Lines – Sasquatch Culture: Part Three

Again, this is a continuation of my series on indications of Sasquatch culture in incidental sighting reports of multiple creatures. Aside from long-term witness observations, I feel that these types of reports are our best source of information on how Sasquatches interact amongst themselves. Please read parts one and two for context if you haven’t already.

I will add my comments at the end of each report as I read between the lines with you. My comments will include my own perspective of what I’ve learned from long-term witnesses over the years. As always, your comments are welcomed and encouraged. Please use the comment form at the end of this post.

Between the Lines – Sasquatch Culture: Part Two

This is a continuation of yesterday’s blog post about Sasquatch culture (please read it if you haven’t already, because it sets the context for today’s post).

Again, in this blog series we’re looking into reports of sightings of multiple Sasquatches in my database to see if we can catch glimpses of clues about their culture. I will add my comments at the end of each report as I read between the lines with you. My comments will include my own perspective of what I’ve learned from long-term witnesses over the years. As always, your comments are welcomed and encouraged. Please use the comment form at the end of this post.

Between the Lines – Sasquatch Culture: Part One

Many years ago, I coined the term “long-term witness” to describe those who interact with Sasquatches on a regular basis, either on their own property or at an off-site habituation area. In order to differentiate between these witnesses and those who simply end up having a sighting by being at the right place at the right time, I termed the others “incidental witnesses“.

The Oregon Bigfoot database contains over 2000 reports from across the country, many of them unpublished. Some of them are from long-term witnesses. Most of them detail sightings and encounters by incidental witnesses.

“It really creeped me out…”

FEATURED OREGON BIGFOOT REPORT #05583

[As always, witness name and contact information is kept confidential]

The following report was submitted to Oregon Bigfoot on 10/17/11. The witness states that his sighting occurred in Macon County, NC, nearest town Highlands, near Highway 64 on August 05, 1995. It was late afternoon, 5 p.m., and the witness was in between Cliffside Recreation Area and Bridal [Veil] Falls. The boulder at the scene was fairly distinct as none of the others were even half its size. There was one witness, 29 years old at the time.

Eyewitness Encounter – Northern California, 1978

Good morning. :)

As I attempt to steer this blog towards a new direction, I’d like to begin by sharing with you an eyewitness encounter that was sent to me via email.

Certain details shared by this witness stand out to me: particularly, that Thom felt he found evidence of a small family unit using a natural “den” for shelter. This has been corroborated by the gentleman I’ve been working with who has observed individuals at length, though the actual structure of the shelter itself differs due to the difference in vegetation between the two locations.

News article: New book tells tall tale, but not necessarily a false one

On Sept. 22, 2005, Brookings resident Travis Cover was driving on a remote section of US Highway 199 when he saw something that he said scared the tar out of him: a hulking 9-foot tall creature standing by the side of the road, shielding its eyes from the glare of headlights.

Cover knew exactly what is was. Based on another chance meeting with a mysterious creature when he was 12 years old, Cover was convinced it was the elusive, foul-smelling humanoid mammal called Bigfoot.

Bigfoot’s head: pointed or rounded?

More goodies from the database.

The fact that I have a text field on the submission form that allows the observer to state, IN THEIR OWN WORDS, the shape of the head brings some interesting data forward. The question on the report submission form is stated as follows: “Was the head rounded or pointed or ?”

The trouble is trying to get accurate numbers of round heads, pointed heads, egg-shaped heads, conical heads, oval heads, oblong heads… well, you get the picture.

Bigfoot Trap in Southern Oregon – Video

This is a really nicely done video on the Southern Oregon Bigfoot trap.

Description posted by Youtuber Scott Walt:

Southern Oregon is home to what is most likely the only official Bigfoot trap in the world. The ten by ten structure was built back in the early 70s by special permit. A wildlife research team out of Eugene, Oregon was inspired to build the structure by sightings from far back as the late 18-hundreds to up to the time they constructed the trap.

It wasn’t an easy task. In 1974, Applegate dam that now impounds Applegate lake didnt even exist and the hike up to the construction site was a long and hard one from the valley below.
