TODAY IN BIGFOOT HISTORY!
2001, Sweetwater River Campground, Wyoming: Hiker Terrorized In Tree
While hiking around Sweetwater River Park, Nick Pontsingle claims he was chased by a Bigfoot. Pontsingle claims the monster came lumbering out of the bushes holding a big branch that it swung back and forth at Pontsingle.
The Bigfoot was growling and inching closer and closer to Pontsingle, who was standing very still. It became clear that the Bigfoot intended to swat Pontsingle with the branch, so he turned and ran away.
Pontsingle clambered up a tree, hoping to escape the rushing Bigfoot. As Pontsingle climbed high into the branches, the Bigfoot stood under the tree and growled and waved its hairy arms. The creature would try shake the tree. Would leave for a few minutes, returning with rocks that it knocked on the trunk. When that didn’t work the Bigfoot left, it returned with a large stick that it tried stabbing into the upper branches.
In the two hours that Pontsingle was trapped in the tree, the Bigfoot tried several other ways to shake him out of the tree. Never did the Bigfoot try to climb up after him. This, Pontsingle, believes is because the Bigfoot was afraid of heights.
Eventually, around sundown the Bigfoot sighed heavily, turned and left the area.
