1978, Superior National Forest, Minnesota: Bigfoot Hoaxer Encounters Real Bigfoot

Brian “Catch” Morliss fashioned a set of oversized feet out of wood that he attached to his feet like snowshoes. Then he went leaping through the mud leaving what looked like Bigfoot prints behind him. His hoax had already been covered by the local news when a hiker photographed them.

Thrilled by his success, “Catch” set out to make more tracks. As he was tying on his fake feet, he heard something creep through the bush behind him. He spun around to see a real life breathing Bigfoot looking down at him. Morliss was so scared that he scooted away on his bottom. He claims that he heard the Bigfoot chortling after him.

1978, Unicoi State Park, Georgia: Parker Girls Fend Off Bigfoot

Sisters, Julie and Kirsten Parker, were camping in Unicoi State Park. Just after midnight on their last day in the Park, their campsite came under assault by a number of Bigfoot.

Julie was the first to hear the creatures rustling around their supplies. She peeked out and saw two large Bigfoot looking creatures throwing their pots and pans around and stamping on their fire pit.

Julie woke her sister. The two of them got flashlights and aimed the beams in the eyes of the Bigfoot creatures. The monsters were startled and ran into the woods.

The rest of the night the Parker Sisters’ tent was pelted with pine cones and dirt clumps. Both sisters were incredibly frightened. As morning came, the Bigfoot seemed to grow bored or tired. By daybreak, the assault was completely over.

Both Parker Sisters swore off camping forever.

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.

1978, Happy Camp, California: Bigfoot Builds Garbage Can Pyramid

Frank Murdoch went to take the trash out in the morning. He found his aluminum garbage can missing. He walked down to the end of his long, winding driveway to find his neighbors, Elizabeth Ballant and Micheal Hurlowski standing there.

Both Ballant and Hurlowski were staring with their mouths agape at a large garbage can pyramid built in the middle of the road. Murdoch asked if anyone knew what happened.

Ballant claimed that she heard something rustling around the side of her house by the garbage can just before dawn. Hurlowski remembered that thought he saw a large animal stomping down his front yard sometime around dawn as well. While Murdoch claims to have heard heavy breathing around that time from below his hallway window.

The three concluded that a Bigfoot was responsible for the aluminum pyramid. Though they were all at a loss as to where the other 8 to 10 other garbage cans came from.

1977, Collings Mountain Trail, Oregon: Female Bigfoot Seen Nursing

Nature hiker, Travis Jonathan, was hiking along Collings Mountain Trail when he stumbled upon something he never forgot.

Jonathan stopped to retie one of his boots. He looked down into the space under a large rock outcropping and saw a hunched over hairy figure. The figure was too human to be a bear and too animal to be a human. Jonathan watched the figure for a few minutes. Finally, he saw it reposition itself.

Jonathan was looking a a mother Bigfoot nursing a baby Bigfoot. The mother looked up and made eye contact with Jonathan, then swung herself around so that he was looking at her back. She turned her head a few times to see if Jonathat was still watching.

Eventually, Jonathan snapped out of his amazement to realize he was being very rude to the mother and child. He turned and continued his hike.

1977, Conconully State Park, Washington: Woman Claims Bigfoot Kidnapped Her

Early in the morning, a disheveled and confused Bernice Rutenbar, stumbled out of the woods into a Conconully campsite. Rutenbar’s clothes were in tatters and her hair was matted and full of twigs.

Rutenbar claimed that she had be grabbed out of her sleeping bag about 90 days ago by a Bigfoot. The creature took her to his lair, where it made her his wife. Rutenbar had to have relations with the beast, clean up, and prepare food that the monster brought back to the cave.

Rutenbar was unable to escape because the Bigfoot rolled a big boulder in front of the cave opening when it left for the day. After many days of torment and nights alone, Rutenbar was able to escape when the Bigfoot left a hole in the cave entrance.

Rutenbar wandered around for a day or two before finding the campsites. There was no physical evidence that Rutenbar had been violated by a Bigfoot, nor was she able to locate the cave she claims she escaped from. She was able to sell the rights of her story to a seedy paperback novelist who published a book called, “Bigfoot, My Husband,” which was loosely based on the Rutenbar tale.

1971, Oasis Mobliehome Park, California: Bigfoot Rocks RVs

Denise and Joel Whitestein were sleeping in thier parked RV. It was the third and final night they were staying at Oasis Park in California.

Denise woke up suddenly. At first she thought they were having an earthquake since the RV was rocking back and forth. She shook her husband, but he just rolled over and muttered something about “just riding it out.”

But when the growling and scratching started at the side windows, Denise screamed and Joel finally got up. When he saw how violently the RV was rocking and heard the beast noises outside, he, too, was concerned. He crept over to the window and looked out. Joel claims to have seen a large ape man pushing on the side of the RV.

Joel and Denise cowered in the corner until the beast moved on.

The next morning the side of their RV was scratched up. Several other campers reported similar damage. Some of the campers thought it was hippies on drugs. Denise was certain it was a monster. A few suggested a Bigfoot. No one there had a plausible explanation.
