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.

1973, Ottawa National Forest, Michigan: Bigfoot’s Flaming Hands

Hippy shaman Freddy Yakka was on a walkabout in Ottawa Forest. He was rolling his lunchtime joint when he spied out of the corner of his eye, a floating ball of fire. At first, Yakka was convinced it was a spirit ball he had heard about spinning through sacred spot or traditional cemeteries.

But as the flaming ball of fire moved past Yakka’s squat, the full picture of what it was came into focus. Yakka claims that he saw a 14 or 16 foot tall Bigfoot slowly marching through the forest with one of his gigantic hands on fire. The flame as well yellow from a distance, but as it went past, Yakka could see it was a blue flame – like a sterno can.

Yakka is at a loss to explain what he saw, but he was still searching for a clear answer to what might have been going on with that creature he saw!

Will Trotoske claims to have seen a large hairy bipedal apelike man walking around the Kistachie Forest. The creature carried with it a long branch with it had wound some vines around in a net like fashion. Trotoske followed the breast for several minutes until they came to a clearing.

The beast started to unwind the vines from the branch and it was in fact a net. Trotoske could not believe his eyes as he watched the Bigfoot jump through the clearing attempting to snag butterflies in its crude net.

Scared of discovery, Trotoske did not stay too long. He left before the Bigfoot caught any butterflies or noticed him crouching behind a tree.

On his way to fish, Carl Little heard a crashing coming toward him. Little said it sounded like a herd of buffalo charging though a china shop. Though on further questioning, Little admitted that he had never heard a herd of buffalo do anything and never set foot, himself, in a china shop.

Little stopped and stood very still, waiting to see what was stomping toward him. Bursting from the shrubbery in front of him, was a reddish gray Bigfoot. Little was so surprised he couched down, trying to hide in the middle of path.

Little noticed that as the Bigfoot lumbered across the path, it cradled in the crook of its massive arm, like a football, a huge beehive. Bees were furiously buzzing around the thick hair of the creature, but it did not seem to bother the creature at all.

Little waited until the Bigfoot was well out of ear shot before he stood up and continued on his way.

While camping with their family, brothers Clinton and Adam Mahula became convinced their camp site was being stalked by a ravenous Bigfoot.

In order to protect themselves and their mom and dad, they came up with a complicated, if not wholly effective, plan of traps and walls.

They spend hours upon hours collecting rocks and branches that they arranged in a four inch high maze. Clinton had the idea that Bigfoot were naturally curious and would get trapped in the maze, trying to figure out the pattern. But there was no pattern and the Bigfoot would get trapped.

Adam was not as certain that a small maze on twigs on the ground would contain an 18 foot tall Bigfoot, but he kept his concerns to himself.

1978, Ecola State Park, Oregon : Bigfoot Hunter Becomes the Hunted

Amateur Bigfoot hunter Clarence Schutletter had been in the Ecola State Park for nearly a week. He had established a grid and was methodically scouring the terrain for any and all hints or evidence of a Sasquatch.

Schutletter had stopped to eat a baloney sandwich. It was a little after one o’clock in the afternoon. Schutletter felt that he was being watched. So he grabbed his 35mm camera and started scanning the area around him. He saw nothing.

The rest of the day, though, he could not shake the feeling that he was being followed – stalked even. At his campsite later that night, he was so uneasy that he could not sleep. Schutletter just felt something was watching him.

The following morning, Schutletter found hundreds of tracks circling his campsite. While the tracks overlapped so much it was impossible to definitively determine if the tacks were made by an animal or a Bigfoot. But Schutletter has a clear sense that the Bigfoot hunter became the Bigfoot huntee that night.
