Decomposed Bigfoot Body, 1962
Exciting information has come from Guest Editor-Bloggers of my blog, Bigfoot Ballyhoo, Greg and Brandy. These two Forest Service employees told of a decomposed, unidentified animal body found as workers cleared roads of fallen trees after the Columbus Day Storm of 1962. Greg wrote that it was found by a Griffy and Laird crew on Greyback spur road.
The animal was huge, decomposing for, they thought, about a month. Those that found the animal and took pictures couldn’t tell what kind of animal it was. All agreed it was too big to be a bear. And here is the exciting evidence that the animal could have been a Bigfoot: it had hands and feet like a human, not paws. And its face appeared to be man-ape. According to Greg the corpse and photos taken were all shipped off to the Department of Interior. He reminded us that the information could be accessed by the Freedom of Information Act. I went on the website and found there are forms to fill out and possibly a fee. I didn’t pursue it, but possibly there are those that read this blog and column that may wish to.
Greg, if you should find one of those photos, please share it with us. I would think someone would have kept one of them for a keepsake; or if you find an old record of the submission to the Department of Interior, that would be exciting information for all of us who believe in the existence of this animal.
Brandy, mentioned above, submitted a thrilling encounter with a Bigfoot. In September of 2009, she was called out in the middle of a lightening fraught night to spot for fires on the Keely Mountain near the Kalmiopsis Wilderness, Oregon. It was around 4:30 AM when she arrived. She couldn’t believe her eyes when she spotted an unusual appearing beast about 25 to 30 feet from her pickup. At the time she thought it was at least ten feet tall, but after thinking about it she believed it more like eight and a half or nine. She said it stood on two legs and had dark hair all over its body. She didn’t feel threatened by it, but she was sure rattled. When she returned to the office she told her boss, Greg, about it and he said, “You wouldn’t be the first one to see one of those things.”
