1962, Umatilla National Forest, Oregon: Campers Report 6 Hours of Howling and Tree Knocking
While camping with his family in Umatilla National Forest, Ed Krolak reported to the rangers that he had been kept up all night by suspicious animal howling. More disturbingly, though, were the sounds of tree vandalism. Krolak clearly heard someone breaking branches from trees, banging logs together, and what sounded like rocks being thrown at tree trunks.
Krolak did not venture far from his camp. But he did yell out into the night for whomever was making those noises to stop. And that he would report them to the proper authorities.
The park ranger noted that there were several sightings on the same night of a large ape-like man animal that was howling and throwing rocks. Krolak was incensed that the park ranger, an employee of science, would even recount such childish tales of monsters in the woods.
