1944, Morin Lumber Company, Montana: Bigfoot Rolls Logs into Workshed

Nightwatch man, Bruce Halfer, heard a commotion up on the ridge above his little workshed. The workshed is where he sat between walking his round around the Morin Lumber yard.

Halfer went out and shone his flashlight up the ridge where he heard the noises. He saw a dark figure on the ridge, three times the size of any of the men who worked at the lumber yard. And so dark that the figure seemed to absorb the light from his flashlight.

Halfer heard the sharp crack of a tree breaking, then heard the distinct sound of a log rolling down the gravel hill. Half did not hesitate, he ran in the opposite direction as fast as he could a several large logs smashed into his night guard workshed. It was completely demolished.

The next morning, in clear day light, Halfer and his boss investigated the site where the logs tumbled from and they found large bare footprints all over the area. Halfer was convinced he had been attacked by a Bigfoot.

1965, Hill City, South Dakota: Bigfoot Seen Wearing Scuba Gear

John Hill was driving near Hill City. He suddenly slammed on the breaks as a Bigfoot stepped out into the middle of the two lane highway.

Hill sat in his car watching the Bigfoot take its time crossing the street. Hill described the Bigfoot as brown and white, with a face like a pancake, and the bulk of like several big crates. But what really stood out the Hill was that strapped to the massive back of the monster was a scuba air tank.

At first, Hill thought it was something else. But on closer examination, it was clearly an air tank that scuba divers use. Hill was at a loss to explain where it came from or what the Bigfoot might be doing wearing it.

2001, Ponca State Park, Nebraska: Bigfoot Flags Down Police Cruiser

Officers George Dale and Sylvia Katz were patrolling near Ponca State Park, when a large, furry, bulky individual appeared on the side of the road waving its arms in the air.

The police officers thought they were being waved down by a citizen in distress. But as the officers slowed to approach, it became clear by the size and animalistic countenance of the individual on the side of the road, that it was a Bigfoot that standing there.

Officer Katz had previously encountered a Bigfoot as a child, so she was able to positively identify the figure as an adult male Bigfoot.

When the police cruiser got within 500 yards of the Bigfoot, the creature reared up and jumped across the road. It disappeared into the woods. The officers, while confused why the creature would wave them down, did not pursue the monster.

Parke Warmaiden and his family were packing up their campsite. His youngest daughter, Madison, was sitting in the back of their SUV watching Harry and the Hendersons on the backseat monitor.

During a scene where the fake Bigfoot is having a loud fit, a real Bigfoot came bounding out of nowhere. The creature threw open the side door of the SUV. Madison claims the Bigfoot looked really upset, as it pushed on the small mounted tv monitor.

Finally, after pushing on it for a few seconds, the DVD of the movie popped out. The Bigfoot grabbed the DVD, broke it in half, then shook its head at Madison. The girl thought the Bigfoot was saying to her that she should not watch such bad movies about Bigfoot.

At no point was the child frightened by the creature, but she was slightly upset by the fact that one of favorite movies’ DVD was broken.

1978, Happy Camp, California: Bigfoot Builds Garbage Can Pyramid

Frank Murdoch went to take the trash out in the morning. He found his aluminum garbage can missing. He walked down to the end of his long, winding driveway to find his neighbors, Elizabeth Ballant and Micheal Hurlowski standing there.

Both Ballant and Hurlowski were staring with their mouths agape at a large garbage can pyramid built in the middle of the road. Murdoch asked if anyone knew what happened.

Ballant claimed that she heard something rustling around the side of her house by the garbage can just before dawn. Hurlowski remembered that thought he saw a large animal stomping down his front yard sometime around dawn as well. While Murdoch claims to have heard heavy breathing around that time from below his hallway window.

The three concluded that a Bigfoot was responsible for the aluminum pyramid. Though they were all at a loss as to where the other 8 to 10 other garbage cans came from.

1991, Trail of Two Forests, Washington: Bigfoot Cave Discovered

Eric Petersen was hiking about on the Trail of Two Forests. He came upon a hole in the ground, slightly off the trail, that he had never seen before. So Petersen stopped to investigate it.

Petersen slowly crawled into the new cave. He could tell that the cave was recently evacuated, because of the loose dirt and smell of fresh earth. The cave was filled with bones and car side mirrors. There was a bed of leaves in the corner. And there was a strong odor of animal body musk.

Petersen was certain that he was in a Bigfoot lair and not a homeless person’s nest. The large footprints and strings of hair that were clinging to the rocks around the bed of leaves were tell tale signs of the creature.

Petersen thought to wait to see if the creature returned to his lair, but as night began to fall, the possibility of being alone in the dark with a sleepy Bigfoot did not appeal to Petersen.

1962, Clatsop Forest, Oregon: Bigfoot, Rat Hunter

Exterminator Barney Glazner was hiking around Clatsop Forest. He came upon some small rodent tracks in the snow. Being an expert in pests and rodents, Galzner recognized the tracks as a family of rats. This was an odd thing to see in the forest, let alone this time of year. So Glazner followed the tracks.

After ten or fifteen feet, Galzner noticed that the rat tracks disappeared. Instead, large Bigfoot tracks took over. Completely stamping out the little rat tracks. This startled and alarmed Glazner. He considered turning around and leaving, since Bigfoot really, really frightened him.

That is when he saw the hulking form of a large black Bigfoot couching down to examine something on the ground. The creature sniffed a few times, turned to look at Glazner for a full minute, before continuing to follow the rat tracks.

Glazner is not certain, but he thinks that the rats were the Bigfoot’s pets that somehow got away from him.
