1985, Gifford Pinchot National Forest, Oregon: Bigfoot Throws Snowballs
Daniel Cortland was taking photos for his family Christmas card in the Gifford Pinchot Forest. He had gotten some nice shots, but nothing that was really great.
As he plodded along through the snow, he saw a tree that was completely outlined in snow. As he inched closer for the perfect angle, he was hit in the head with a snowball. Startled he called out. He was immediately answered by a laughing howl. Then another snowball hit him. And another.
Cortland twirled around and tried to find the culprit. He spied a 12 foot hairy beast hiding behind one of the larger trees about 100 yards away. He raised his camera to get a shot of the Bigfoot, but only saw the white blur of the snowball that smacked into his camera.
Cortland called out angrily that his camera was off limits, but was answered only by a more intense barrage of snowballs. Completely humiliated, Cortland turned heel and ran away. The soft pad of snowballs followed as he ran.
Cortland remains surprised that when he tells of his Bigfoot encounter, most people believe everything except the creatures impeccable aim.
