Hi, anyone have an encounter or know someone who has? Most encounters have been in North American forests and there has been much documented. Please give the city/town you live in and how far from your home was the encounter. Thanks!

I had an interesting encounter last summer (2015). It was not a Sasquatch, but it was something large that I have not been able to identify. The encounter took place in the Narrow Hills provincial park in Saskatchewan, Canada. I was leading a group of teens on a hike when we saw this creature.

One of my campers did this drawing the day after the encounter. We estimated it's height at about 5 feet tall, and it was a rusty orange colour.

Before this encounter I thought I could identify all the larger animals in this forest as I had spent a lot of time there, but this one really confused me, I have never seen anything else like it.

That's really interesting! I am personally a believer in cryptozoology, though I personally think most Sasquatch sightings are actually sightings of bears. That bird thing is clearly not a bear!

Leora, thank you for responding. It's interesting to me that like you, I just thought I knew a great deal about our forests...until I started researching and reading and watching the many videos on youtube. I have listened to talks by scholars on related subjects that all point to the fact that many people have actually seen creatures that cannot be identified. They go by various names because we really dont know the species! The drawing you posted is very interesting! The color orange, the feathers..,strange. The good thing is that everyone saw it! The creatures people encounter are often tot photographed and so others tend to dismiss it as a hoax or whatever. But I'm finding out that these encounters are real. There is much research going on but the public isnt ready to accept that we humans dont know everything.

Through my research I found that in Russia in 1820 there was a "Big foot-like" woman that was caught & used as a slave. They called her Zana. If you check google it will surprise you to read about this. And yet, I had never heard os such a thing. Why? Why is this stuff so taboo?

I didnt think Sasquatches, Big foot or Chupacabras were real. I had never seen any myself so i figured they didnt exist. Simple as that! But as I research more and more, I find that real people have encountered strange creatures and, although a small percentage may be hoaxes, a large percentage are not! Thanks for sharing your experience. It's a strange creature alright!!

I grew up in grizzly bear country and my family always assumed that any local Sasquatch sightings were mis-identified bears. And I never had reason to modify that opinion.

That said, the family pickup truck for several years had a bullet hole in the windshield. The story that came with that bullet hole (and with the truck) was that two local gentlemen were driving home from an extremely rural roadside bar in 1969 or so. Alcohol had indeed been consumed. They came around a sharp corner and found a Sasquatch standing in the road blocking their forward progress. Emphatically it was said NOT to be a bear, being taller and more humanoid. A hasty drunken attempt was made to extricate two large men and two hunting rifles from a small Studebaker pickup cab, during the course of which attempt there was an accidental discharge of one of the rifles. Nobody was hurt, and the Sasquatch vanished into the woods. This would have been on the dirt road from Tok to Eagle in the eastern interior of Alaska, approximately twenty miles from Eagle.

I do not tell this story because I believe it; I don't. Or rather, I don't believe that the men in question were sober enough to practice responsible zoology, crypto or otherwise. But I wasn't there.

Interesting story, Dan. Something I realized when I first started researching the subject of Sasquatch/Bigfoot is that the reason that people have a hard time believing is because there is nothing tangible such as a photo. The fact is that when a traumatic event happens such as an encounter with Bigfoot, the last thing that one thinks about is taking a photo. Very few have been able to gather composure enough to get a photo. Some have taken a photo or video that is blurred or shakey so then it is classified as a hoax.

Below is a 911 call that i found interesting. I don't know the result of the call but this caller is clearly shaken. Take a listen.
