Possible howl heard at night near Arcadia Valley

YEAR: 2015


MONTH: September

DATE: 28

STATE: Missouri

COUNTY: Iron County

LOCATION DETAILS: Area of Highway E close to Highway 21

NEAREST TOWN: Arcadia Valley


OBSERVED: On September 28, 2015 at approximately 8:45 pm myself and two co-workers were outside work talking about our day. Where we work is pretty remote, southeast Iron county close to Madison County line. It was a cool, cloudless, quiet, full moon night. I know this because we were discussing how well we could see the stars that night. The three of us were looking up at the stars when we heard a howling noise which lasted at least 10-15 seconds. We were at an awe on what it could have been. We are all hunters and have plenty of time in the woods. This was no sound we had ever heard before.  After doing some research online we've all come to the conclusion what we heard was a sasquatch Aka big foot.

ALSO NOTICED: There is a cattle farm across the road normally we would hear dogs, cows but it was very quiet that night.

OTHER WITNESSES: 3 including myself. Looking up at the stars.


TIME AND CONDITIONS: 8:45 pm cool clear full moon bright

ENVIRONMENT: Pond and river. Wooded areas all around. Mountain ridges.

Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Chris Callahan:

In Summary:

Exact date was remembered since the howl was heard the night after the Lunar Eclipse of September 27.

I spoke with the witness and asked her to compare the call heard to other supposed Bigfoot audio recordings. She stated it was a long whooping howl louder than anything she and her co-workers had ever experienced before. The witness compared it to the 1994 Ohio - Moaning Howl and the 2006 Florida Howl recordings, with the Florida Howl being the most similar.

I am familiar with the area, there is a rich history of Bigfoot activity here that goes back to the pioneer days, and certainly before.
