Over the years, there have been a number of Bigfoot Sightings around North America. The majority of them are of course located in the forests of the Pacific Northwest, but there are a few other sightings scattered around the country. Some of them have been proven to be hoaxes, whether through careful analysis of a Bigfoot video or just admission from the ‘viewer’. However, some are completely unexplained to this day. In this article I want to share with you what I feel are some of the most famous of Sasquatch Sightings. Let’s jump in shall we?
Probably one of the most famous encounters with Sasquatch was by Albert Ostman, a Canadian Prospector. This encounter took place in 1924. What is strange about this encounter however was the fact that Albert didn’t just see Bigfoot, but he was actually abducted by them, for six days straight. Many people dismissed him as a mad man, but right up until his death, Albert insisted this actually happened. He even went so far to sign under oath to say it actually happened.
There is another encounter with Sasquatch, which took place in 1924, albeit not as popular as the latter. This Sasquatch encounter involved a group of miners. Late at night they claimed to hear Bigfoot Calls echo outside. On going out to investigate they saw a bunch of what appeared to be ‘apes’ throwing rocks at their cabin. As you can probably guess, they ran off pretty quickly. Not without killing at least one of them of course. This is one of the Sasquatch Sightings that remains a mystery to this very day. Rumors have been spread concerning a place known as “Ape Canyon”, in the state of Washington, which claim this is nothing more than a local legend. But nothing has yet explained the mysterious large footprints that have appeared in the area.
Perhaps the most famous of Sasquatch Sightings took place in October 1967. Anybody who has been searching for Bigfoot for a while will know about this one. The case in question here concerns a film made by Roger Patterson and Robert Gimlin. Both of them claim that this video shows a genuine Bigfoot Sighting. Many experts have analyzed this Bigfoot Video, none of whom can say whether it is fake or not. This, I believe is one of the main reasons as to why people are searching for the elusive creature in this day and age. It certainly is what thrust Bigfoot into the public consciousness.
One of the most recent sightings of this elusive beast took place in September 2007. Once again, this concerns another Bigfoot video. This time recorded by Rick Jacobs who was on the search for deer to hunt. During the hunt his camera triggered which caught…something. People claim this was a bear with severe mange, Bigfoot experts claim he caught the beast. Whether we will ever find out the true answer is anybody’s guess.
As I mentioned at the start, some of these may be hoaxes, but what if they aren’t? What if there really is something wandering about the woodlands of North America? What if Bigfoot really does exist?
