1949, Adler Creek, Sandy, Oregon: Charles McBride Witnesses a Bigfoot Funeral
While fishing, Charles McBride saw a group of what looked like three bears walking upright move through the forest. Leaving his kit behind, McBride followed the bear creatures.
After several stops, where the creatures leaned against trees and appeared to weep, the procession stopped at a particularally shallow spot in the river. The three creatures waded into the Creek. McBride, then, saw that two of the creatures were carrying a fourth creature.
Two of the Bigfoot washed their dead friend in the creek, smoothing out its fur. Meanwhile, the third started digging a deep hole with his massive hands. The three gently lowered the body of their friend into the grave and howled together. McBride thought he heard a sad melody to the beast’s dirge.
All three Bigfoot filled in the hole. The smallest of the three gathered up some smooth stones and little rocks, which were carefully arranged on the grave. Once this ritual was completed, all three Bigfoot ran off in different directions.
Later when McBride tried to return to the grave site, he could not find the rocks nor any evidence of recent digging. As a result, his story remains widely dismissed as the fantasy of a sun drunk fisherman.
