1940, Rogue River National Forest, Oregon: Bigfoot Splashing in Waterfall
While collecting rock samples from a creek bed near a waterfall in the Rogue River Forest, Doug Porter was startled by a loud splash.
When he looked up the river, he saw a large hairy man sitting under the waterfall, splashing and growling with glee. Porter thought it was some sort of hobo or maybe a mountain man who came to wash himself. But on closer examination, he saw that the man was clearly a beast.
It was totally naked and completely covered in a fine dark hair, its facial features were more like an ape than a man, and its arms were much too muscular for a normal human. Porter saw its gigantic feet poking out of the stream and at once realized he was looking straight at a real live Bigfoot.
Since Porter was not a Bigfoot hunter, he stood up and ran as fast as he could out of there. He did not even return to collect his geology equipment.
