1969, Malheur National Forest, Oregon: Bigfoot Pulls Ponytails of Hikers

Hippies, Gerry Klein and John Cielo, were smoking marijuana and hiking in Malheur Forest. They had stopped to eat some granola that Cielo’s old lady packed for them.

Suddenly, a large ape creature leaped over a nearby boulder and ran up to the two hippies. The pair immediately recognized the creature as a Bigfoot. Klein tried to offer the creature some of their granola, but the monster wanted none of that nuts and berries bullshit.

Angered that the two humans did not have junk food on them, the Bigfoot pulled the hippie’s ponytails really hard. Cielo claimed to have “a headache for like a week,” while Klein said the hair tug really “harshed his mellow.”

Once the Bigfoot pulled their hair, the hippies said it bounced off over the rocks, presumably looking for junk food else where.

1962, Hidden Springs Forest, Illinois: Half Man Bigfoot Seen Near Cave

A group of kids were playing near some water in Hidden Springs Forest. One of the children saw something emerge from a cave in the ground. Some of the children reported that it was completely hairless and obviously a female creature. The other half of the children claim that the monster was covered in hair and was a very powerful male. The one thing all the children agreed upon was that it was not a normal person, the creature was more like a big monster or hairless ape.

Clearly, the children saw a shape shifting Bigfoot caught emerging from its underground lair.

1960, Sabine National Forest, Texas: Bigfoot Stamps Out Campfire

While camping in Sabine Forest, Todd Clifford and his brother Louie were sitting around smoking cigars and star gazing and drinking some beers. Suddenly, racing out of the darkness from behind them came a growling and snarling Bigfoot.

“We smelled it before it got there, like the bottom of a leaf pile or maybe a bunch of dead snails,” Louie recalled.

“Yep. All I saw was my feet. Damned thing pushed me over,” Todd claims.

“I got up and ran. I figured it was nice knowing my brother…” Louie laughs.

“He ain’t joking with you. I found out who my friends were that night and it weren’t him,” Todd points at his laughing brother.

The brothers assert that the Bigfoot stamped out the campfire with its gigantic feet, then padded off into the woods again.

“Don’t know what about that particular fire upset it, but it sure did put it out.”

“I am just glad it didn’t piss on it,” Todd laughs.

1963, Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest, Wisconsin: Bigfoot Raft Launch

Monty Pruitt was smoking cigarettes by the river. He was still upset about being dragged out to on this family vacation. He wanted to go to the water park they just opened, but get eaten alive by fleas.

As Pruitt flicked a cigarette butt into the water, he saw a Bigfoot emerge from the bushes. Pruitt watched in awe as the gigantic creature crept to the edge of the water. It was holding in its hands a small wooden raft. It was maybe the size of a two by four.

The creature ever so gently launched the toy raft into the river. The Bigfoot clapped and seemed to laugh with delight as the little raft floated away. The monster chased after it, obviously very happy with the toy raft’s successful launch.

Pruitt went back to his family and reported what he saw, but none of them believed it.

1967, Scapegoat Mountain, Montana: Bigfoot’s Glowing Orbs Observed

Andrew Spikro was camping in the area around Scapegoat Mountain. He had just put down the book he was reading in his tent and turned down his battery operated lantern. Just as the dark filled the tent, Spikro saw five or six glowing orbs outside his tent.

He sat up to get a better look. The orbs were about the size of softballs. And that moved in semi-circles up and down around his tent.

Spikro could only guess how bright they actually were, since they were clearly defined through the dark fabric of his tent. As the orbs moved around the campsite, he heard grunting and snorting. Spikro claims these noises were clearly communication to several creatures.

The orbs and noise of campsite rummaging went on for a quarter hour. Then once the orbs were gone, Spikro went out to investigate his campsite. He found about 50 to 70 Bigfoot prints in the dirt around his tent.

Over the years, Spikro has been unable to get a satisfactory answer as to what those Bigfoot Glowing Orbs were or why they were there.

1964, Fife Creek Valley, California: Scientist sees Bigfoot Tangled in Tinsel

Dr. T. Charles Loretta was hiking in the Fife Creek Valley collecting samples of Ramalina menziesii. Dr. Loretta hoped to make the Lace Lichen so popular that one day it would be made the state lichen.

As Dr. Loretta set up to take a series of photographs of a cluster of lichen he discovered, he heard branches cracking along the hill above him. Then the doctor heard a heavy shuffling like someone was dragging a duffle bag.

 Dr. Loretta saw a big figure lumbering along the ridge. He seemed to sparkle in the sunlight breaking through the redwood canopy. As he focused on the sparkling, he determined that the creature had Christmas tree tinsel matted or struck it its hair.

He postulated that the Bigfoot must have tangled with the wrong garbage pile and somehow came in contact with a pile of discarded Christmas trees. Or, more unlikely, the Bigfoot put the tinsel there itself as a style statement, but that would defeat any camouflage effect the creature naturally developed.

While Dr. Loretta did not get any photos of the Bigfoot, he did get several usable shots of the lichen.

1969, Redwood State Park, California: Man Sees Blurry Figure

David Keys hiked up to a overhang to get a better scenic view of a valley in Redwood State Park. As he scanned the vista and dug through his napsack looking for his sketch book, Keys caught a glimpse of something very strange.

Racing down the steep, flat front of a rock face was a figure that looked half man, half beast. At first, Keys thought it was an animal that might have taken a tumble. But as he watched it move down the incline, Keys was convinced that it was no normal animal.

For one thing, it was much too large to be a bear or goat. And for another thing, it was moving too quickly and agilely to be falling. When the creature got to the loose rocky bottom of the incline it steadied itself before racing off out of sight.

When Keys described what he saw, his Park Ranger friend agreed that it might have been a Bigfoot. There had been several other reports of strange ape or bear like creatures running around the park.
