1959, Pymatuning State Park, Pennsylvania: Cub Scouts Terrorized

Scout Master Frank Diniz was awoken around 3:30 AM by the screams of several of his Cub Scouts. He bolted from his tent to find several of the 11 year old boys crying and running around in a circle waving their arms over their head. Diniz used his whistle and flashlight to gather the hysterical boys into a line. Diniz then questioned the boys.

The story he heard frightened him as well.

Several of the boys were awakened from their sleep by a thundering growl and then a violent shaking of their tent. They thought it was a prank being played by their friends, until the tent itself was torn from over them and thrown into a tree.  Looming over them as a huge Bigfoot. It snarled and then screamed a horrible scream at them. Two of the boys shut their eyes and never really saw the creature, while the other two only remember the teeth or its glowing eyes, respectively.

Diniz searched the area, but only found the tent in the tree. The ground was too dry for any good prints.

The next morning, Diniz cut the camping weekend short and got his troop out of the park.

1954, Loxahatchee River, Florida: Father and Daughter See Swimming Bigfoot

On a canoe trip along the Loxahatchee River, Alan Smith and his twelve year old daughter Jenny-Mae Smith saw a lot of wild creatures. Jenny-Mae had seen nearly twenty two dragonflies, while Alan kept pointing to various types of fish he saw in the dark river waters.

As the canoe slowly floated along, the pair were chatting about the lack of clouds in the sky, when Jenny-Mae noticed a large dark mass in the middle of the river. At first, Alan thought it was a tree or maybe a sandbar or group of rocks.

As the canoe headed straight for it, Alan tried to steer to the side. Heading first left, then right, but the dark mass appeared to follow the canoe’s heading. It was as if the mass was purposefully getting in the way.

Jenny-Mae’s gasp startled her father. She pointed at the mass and shouted, “Its a bear!”

Only it was no bear swimming in that Florida River. It was a Bigfoot.

As the canoe got within arm’s length of the monster, it dove under the water. Emerging on the the other side of the canoe with a large splash. Alan paddled furiously to get away from the creature. Who seemed to be laughing at the trick it played on the panicked people in the canoe.

1954, Cumberland Gap, Kentucky: Children See Bigfoot Digging in Mud

Slim Ian and his two brothers, Mark and Dickey Ian, were playing around some trees in Cumberland Gap. Their parents were back near the car listening to the radio. The boys were throwing pine cones at each other and whipping each other with branches. Slim stopped short as the pine cone Dickey threw at him bounced off the back of his head. Instead of turning to fight, Slim just stood there as in a daze.

It was when Dickey and Mark ran up to Slim’s side that they understood Slim’s lack of reaction. About twenty five feet from where the brothers stood was a Bigfoot digging in the mud. The Bigfoot’s hands grabbed a huge pile of mud and then flung it into the air, high over the boys heads. Dickey, being the youngest, started to scream. The Bigfoot glanced over at the trio, which was enough to send all three brothers running away in tears.

When they arrived at the car, all three were out of breath, panting, and flushed. Their father laughed at them thinking they scared themselves somehow. It was only later that night that Dickey was able to tell his mother the tale of the digging monster. His two brothers would not talk about what they saw, so their mother assumed it was a backwoods hill person that scared her sons. And that just made her mad.

1951, Whitman Lake, Alaska: Fisherman Pelted with Pine Cones

Ross Collins was fishing alone. He had caught many fish, but kept only a few.

Collins was gathering up his tackle, when he noticed a pine cone fall a few feet in front of him. He thought it odd, since the nearest pine tree was pretty far back along the trail he came in on.  But Collins knew sometimes things fall from the sky that have no business being in the air in the first place. So he paid it a little attention.

A few minutes later, as he bent over his tackle, he felt something pelt his back. He jerked upright just as the next pine cone landed on his gear.

For the next few minutes, pine cones rained down on Collins. Many of them landing directly on him, others missing him completely. When the barrage was over, he counted at least 35 pine cones.

When he told his friend about the hail of pine cones and detailed where he had been fishing. His friend informed him that spot was very close to a Bigfoot nest and there had been many, many strange sightings and other weird things happening around that spot.

Collins, not believing in Bigfoot, chalked it up to teenagers being bad kids.

1952, Greater Prairie Chicken Trail, Colorado: Bird Watcher Watches Dancing Bigfoot

Amateur ornithologist, Avery Hideman, was out birding along the Greater Prairie Chicken Trail in Fort Mason, Colorado. Hideman spied two Cassin’s Sparrows when he noticed something in the lower corner of his binoculars. He swung them down to investigate what he saw made him cruse and nearly drop his binoculars.

Hideman claims he saw two Bigfoot dancing along the ridge about a half mile away. Hideman was certain they were Bigfoot because of their enormous size. They were covered in dark hair and looked like giant apemen. Hideman was totally convinced when the two creatures kick up their heels and he saw their big feet! They were larger than any human feet that he ever seen.

Hideman watched for several minutes the two monsters prance around. Unfamiliar with many popular dances, Hideman probably misidentified the Bigfoot dance as “clear square dance moves.”

1956, Titusville, Pennsylvania: Woman is Visited by Bigfoot Ghost

Selma Jackson went to church every morning since she retired in June of 1956. Usually, the morning mass. On this particular morning, it started to rain as she made her walk to the church. Not wanting to get wet, she took cover under a little bus shelter on the side of the road.

As she stood there watching the rain pelt the road, she heard a moaning sound coming from behind her. Ms. Jackson turned around to see, much to her chagrin, hovering in the dripping trees the ghostly shape of a Bigfoot. The figure hovered off the ground a few feet and was a blue translucent color. But it was clearly a Bigfoot monster. It had the large apelike features, the massively large feet, the powerfully strong arms, and the whole area around it smelled like burning batteries.

Ms. Jackson started to pray for her safety, but the Bigfoot looked so sad and lost, she began to take pity on the ghost. She called out to it to “get on.” The ghost looked at her and she said again, “go on get on with yourself.” The Bigfoot moaned some but turned and started to float away.

A few minutes after the ghost disappeared, the rain stopped and Ms. Jackson made it to church without missing much at all. She prayed for that Bigfoot ghost that it might find it’s way to some settled peace.

1957, Breckenridge Ski Resort, Colorado: Bigfoot Seen Entering UFO

Jack Chalich, a college student out on a morning ski stumbles upon a very disturbing sight. As he zig zagged down the Beaver Run Trail, he spotted something bright, shiny, and clearly metallic on the other side of the treeline.

He came to a stop to investigate the strange object. It was about the size of two Chevrolet sedans stacked next to each other and as tall as a playground slide. It gave off a light that was nearly impossible to look directly at, and the silver surface of the machine was otherworldly. It only took Chalich a few seconds to realize he stumbled upon a genuine UFO.

Just as that fact hit him, Chalich realized he was standing there gawking at it like a tourist. Immediately, he ducked down. He crept closer to the cylinder spaceship, laying flat on his belly in some dense bushes.

Chalich nearly sqwaked when he saw the tall white skinned alien beings walk out through the woods. They were chattering in a clicking language to a huge hairy beast. Chalich rubbed his eyes in disbelief as the massive Bigfoot bent down to better hear the large fish eye alien beings.

He watched in horror as three more alien creatures emerged from the side of the spaceship. They clearly greeted the Bigfoot, who gently embraced each one, before the whole group re-entered the UFO. Chalich passed out or fainted. Because the next thing he remembers is waking up at the bottom of the ski trail. His skies had been removed and neatly stacked next to him.

Chalich found that as he told his tale to others, many believed the UFO part but dismissed the claim that Bigfoot was an alien.
