NEAREST ROAD: Big hanaford rd.
My wife and I bought raw property in the foothills of south central Washington 8 yrs next April. I put out a peccary manikin used for archery. The next morning I found the target pulled up from the ground and pulled apart. Upon inspection I found teeth marks. 2 weeks ago we heard a short loud call and an answer softer with a ug ug ug at the end. The deer split in a hurry.
ALSO NOTICED: When my friend left he called while driving and said there was something standing on two legs 15 ft off the road.
OTHER WITNESSES: 2 and myself
OTHER STORIES: Every 3-4 months I hear short screams.
TIME AND CONDITIONS: 8:30 pm
ENVIRONMENT: Woods, my home
Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Scott Taylor:
I called this witness on 1/16/18 to establish contact. A short time later my wife and I went to visit the site.
During our initial phone conversation the witness described many typical sasquatch related occurrences. He also stated that so much activity is going on day-to-day that he has begun ignoring it.
The activity started ten years ago the same day that they moved-in to the home. Behind his home there is a slope going uphill into a very large tract of timber company property. About 75 yards away there is a shallow draw that drains over to a creek that flows through his property.
He described seeing two red eyes over by that shallow draw. Later, when we visited the site, I had him show me where the eyes were. Then he went back to where he stood when he saw them. I raised my hand until it was about the same height as he remembered them. My arm was outstretched above me as far as I could reach. This would indicate that the individual standing there was around eight feet tall.
The witness raises turkeys. There is a pen that is between his house and where he said that the eyes were. Periodically, a turkey would disappear. He began to watch what was going on. When a turkey nested within arm's reach of the fence, then it would not be there in the morning. The surviving turkeys all nested roosted in the middle of the pen, out of arm's reach.
The witness is also an archer. He set up 3-D targets in the woods to the north-west of his house. One morning he found his javalina target busted-up (they come in several sections that have to be assembled like a 3-D puzzle). There were scratch marks, looking like fingernails and there was the outline and indentions from what looked like a bite. The bite marks looked human in shape, but much larger, more the size of horse teeth. The witness has no horses.
Also reported is the sound of voices. He can’t understand what they are saying, and has come to call them the “jabbering Chinese man”. Occasionally he hears yelling from the forest property to the north.
He hears wood knocks at all times of the day and night, as well as branch-breaks. Often, he hears the sound of something or someone walking on two legs in the forest. He also finds items out of place, moved around, and often finds rocks left on top of vehicles and equipment.
On-site investigation. My wife and I visited his property a few days after talking with him on the phone. We observed that the location is at the edge of a large tract of timber company land. There is brush and forest within 50 yards of his home where a sasquatch could observe the home.
As mentioned before, we were able to get an estimate of the height of the observed red eyes. We found a track impression near the turkey pen. It was about 15 inches long and six inches wide. He showed me the places where rocks are left sitting on top of pieces of equipment. This is very similar to what I have observed at other locations in similar situations.
The location is in some of the best low-land habitat in the area. There are mines and caves around, large tracks of forest that connect with forest all the way to the Cascades. There are power-lines near-by that provide easy travel routes. Deer, elk, small game animals, and birds are plentiful in the area.
