TODAY IN BIGFOOT HISTORY!
1983, Priest Lake State Park, Idaho: Dried Flower Bunches Left by Bigfoot
James Connie set up a series of Bigfoot traps in and around Priest Lake. He was encouraged to do so by several sightings and documented Bigfoot prints that he cast in plaster.
Connie’s traps consisted of raw and cooked whole chickens, with a trigger and suspended net. Connie planned on purchasing photographic equipment as soon as he could save the money.
In the meantime, these net traps were the best he could do. After several weeks of setting up the traps and returning with no results other than rotten chickens, Connie found something that excites him to this day.
In one of the traps in the most remote location in the woods that Connie only checked twice a month, he found the gift. Both chickens were completely devoured. Only a few bones remained scattered around. Hanging from the ropes in the net were bunches of dried flowers. Meticulous placed with a delicate touch so as not to spring the trap.
The dried flower bunches were beautiful wild flowers. When Connie had the flowers identified by his friend, a local florist, he was amazed to discover most of the flowers came from miles away – if not other areas of the nation. Connie developed the theory that a Bigfoot must carry these flowers around either to make gifts of them or as seasoning for whatever food it might scavenge.
Naysayers claim the dried flowers were placed there by kids. Others claim Connie is lying and found the flower arrangements in a dumpster behind the party center after a wedding and created the story around them. Connie’s traps never have trapped anything else.
