1965, Sam Houston National Forest, Texas: Hiker Mesmerized
Mike Christian was hiking along Lone Star trail when he thought someone was following him. He walked a bit faster, but slowed himself up by constantly checking over his shoulder. Every rustle or snapped twig set the hair on the back of his neck to stand up.
He barely noticed when he approached the dark, overgrown section of the trail. A part of the forest where the foliage was so thick that it blocked out the sun. Christian was well into the darkened grove, when he heard the cracking of knuckles and a low guttural growl.
He started to run back the way he came but the sudden crack of a tree stopped him cold. If Christian ran three more steps, the thick tree branch that fell would have crushed him. He shrieked and ran the opposite way. He shouted for help and was waving his arms, trying to scare off whatever animal followed him.
Just as he saw the meadow beyond the trees, the butterflies floating in bright sunlight, Christan came face to face with a monster. Bigfoot had stalked him for miles. Now it stood blocking the path. It was brown, with a gigantic head, beady eyes, and enormous teeth that drooled down on its heaving chest. It bent down and roared in Christian’s face.
Christan fainted. When he woke up, a group of teenagers stood around him. He was soaking wet and covered in scrapes and mud. He was miles from where he last remembered being. And the teenagers who found him could offer no explanation as to how he got there or how long he was blackout.
To this day, Christan believes that Bigfoot put him under a magic spell and kept him as a prisoner for days, though there is little evidence, physical or otherwise, to support his belief.
