1743, Yellow Creek Ohio, Andrew Pole and John Christ Rifle Fight Sasquatches

TODAY IN BIGFOOT HISTORY! Where the Ohio River meet Yellow Creek, Andrew Pole and his friend John Christ were tracking some Wyandot warriors who had stolen Mrs. Jack Jackson’s hog. Pole and Christ spotted what they thought were two of the Wyandot’s bathing at the mouth of the Yellow Creek. Christ stormed into the brush hoping to flush the warriors deeper into the river, where Pole could pick them off with the rifles. The plan failed when the two realized that what they thought were two distinct Indians, was actually one large Sasquatch. Instead of fleeing across the river, the Sasquatch counter-charged Christ’s charge, picking him up and smashing him into some rocks. In horror, Pole opened fire. Both musket balls slammed into the beast, who reeled and charged Pole. The two fought hand to paw. Pole claims he survived the attack, showing off the broken rifles as proof that he used them as clubs against the monster.
