1977, Pharaoh Lake Wilderness Area, New York: Bigfoot Throws Snowballs at Hiker

Daniel Dornhaus was hiking through an isolated area of Pharaoh Lake. He stopped to try to identify a bird he saw on a tree a few yards ahead of him. Suddenly, the tree trunk near the bird was hit with a smack by a snowball.

The startled Dornhaus yelled out in anger at whomever threw the snowball. He pulled his scarf tighter and stated to walk away when a tightly packed snowball pelted him in the back of the head. The snow went down between his jacket and shirt, something that always annoyed Dornhaus when he was a kid in snowball fights.

Dornhaus started yelling for the snowball thrower to show himself. When there was a terrific howl, a long guttural laugh, then like 15 to 25 snowballs came flying at Dornhaus, all at once. Most missed, but a few hit him. One knocked his hat off.

Dornhaus was incredibly angry now and started swearing and cursing. A large brown Bigfoot peeked out from behind a big mound of snowy bushes. The creature seemed to wave and smile at him, before chucking a snowball directly at Dornhaus.

Surprised for the second time that day, Dornhaus took off running as snowballs continued to fall around him and hit trees near him.
