2011, Bunny Flat Trail, California: Bigfoot Gropes Cross Country Skier


2011, Bunny Flat Trail, California: Bigfoot Gropes Cross Country Skier

Nancy Rowland was cross country skiing along Bunny Flat Trail. She stopped to look at a strange nest exposed in the bare branches of a nearby tree.

Lost in thought, Rowland did not hear the gentle thump of the Bigfoot approaching her. Suddenly she felt the large hair arms embrace her. She started to scream as the Bigfoot pinched her behind.

Rowland claims that her scream must have startled the Bigfoot who was not used to being denied its forward advances. The gross creature, immediately released Rowland. It muttered something that sounded like a half hearted apology and then walked away with its massive head hanging low.

It did look back once or twice, almost as if the Bigfoot expected Rowland to call it back for more bottom pinching.

2014, Guerneville, California: Bigfoot Seen Drinking from Hot Tub

Noelle Powell was staying with her two dogs in a cabin in the Russian River area. She got up in the middle of the night because her larger dog, London, was barking like a crazy person. Powell, more scared of Meth head hillbillies than any sort of creature, looked out the window where London was furiously barking.

Powell saw a Bigfoot leaning over the uncovered hot tub on the side of her cabin. Powell described the creature as incredibly hairy, over 12 feet tall, and with glowering red eyes. She knocked on the window. The creature looked up with hot tub water dripping down its furry face. Powell yelled at the creature through the window to stop drinking from the hot tub, that that water was nasty. The Bigfoot, clearly, confused by the reprimand, slowly backed off into the darkness.

The next day she called her friend to report the sighting this way, “Clearly it was a Bigfoot, which is ridiculous because everyone knows there is no such thing as Bigfoot.”

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.

1996, Avacado Lake, California: Swimmers Attacked by Bigfoot

Teens Bailey Davidson and Stephanie Gonzales were swimming in Lake Avacado. The lake is notorious for the high number of drownings that occur each year. This statistic did not affect the teens’ choice to go for a swim though after their scary encounter that day, neither would ever swim in that lake again.

The girls were both accomplished swimmers, Davidson was on the high school swim team and Gonzales had been on the swim team.

As the two friends swam, something hairy and large came floating by them. At first, Davidson thought it was a log. Gonzales thought it might be a beaver. But when the hairy object got closer to the girls, they realized it was a huge humanoid creature.

Davidson recognized that the creature was a Bigfoot and she let out a ear splitting scream. The Bigfoot started trashing and splashing and growling and spitting as it kept swimming straight at the girls. Gonzales dove underwater and swam as fast as she could back to shore. While Davidson swam off in the other direction.

By the time the Bigfoot realized the girls had gone in opposite directions, it was too tired to do much more than float away on its back, sunning its massive, hairy belly.

While on a day trip picnic with his sweetie, Peter Smith and Dolly James, experienced a horrifying and unforgettable encounter.

Just as Peter uncorked the bottle of wine, a large hairy man leaped from the bushes. The man was completely covered in filthy dark hair, had the facial features of an ape, and smelled like raw sewage. The wild man waved his massive arms up and down and screamed a terrible, high pitched scream.

Peter and Dolly jumped up and ran down toward their automobile. When they returned a half an hour later, the couples picnic basket was gone and the rest of their belongings were strewn all over.

Years later, when telling the story, Dolly was informed that she had seen a Bigfoot. She just clucked and said, “I don’t know about all that.”

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.

1989, Lassen National Forest, California: Two Bigfoot Holding Hands

Mike Burris was hiking toward Chaos Crags when he heard something moving heavily through the forest behind him. Burris stopped on the trail and waited to see who was following him.

After a few minutes of waiting and no one emerging around the bend, Burris continued on his hike. About twenty minutes later, Burris saw something that he will never forget.

Burris claims to have seen a large Bigfoot holding hands with a smaller Bigfoot cross the path ahead of him. The larger one was a blackish brown and the smaller one was more reddish blonde. Burris is certain that the large one was a male and smaller one was female. The male was clearing leading the female along.

Burris thought about following the pair, but by the time he started after the Bigfoots, they had completely disappeared. Burris is pretty sure they knew he was there and hid from him.
