Camp cook sees a sasquatch at a logging camp while loggers were away from camp
(Show Printer-friendly Version)
YEAR: Early 1950's
PROVINCE: British Columbia
LOCATION DETAILS: The logging camp was located between Peachland and Princeton.
OBSERVED: It is a well known story among the oldtimers here that the camp cook at a logging operation in the thick woods saw what she described as a sasquatch when all the men were out of camp falling trees. This would have taken place in the early 1950's I think. There is a picture of the loggers and sophie in the history book called Peachland memories. I believe a man who was there and still lives in Peachland may shed more light on the incident--Gordon Sanderson.
OTHER WITNESSES: Preparing food in logging camp.
ENVIRONMENT: Thick Jackpine forests.
