OBSERVED: We rented a cabin on River Road on the Wenatchee River for four night. I heard howling off and on from 1am-3am three nights in a row, and then wood knocking in between on the 3rd night. I have never heard sounds like that before. It was pretty windy outside, however the sound was not happening during the daytime.
OTHER WITNESSES: My sister and daughter were in the cabin. However they were sleeping so did not hear it. I passed it off as the wind at night, until I heard a wood knock the 3rd night. Then told my family, and nothing happened the last night there.
OTHER STORIES: No, I didnt ask.
TIME AND CONDITIONS: Night- 1am-3am. Clear, 55-60 degrees, it was windy out.
ENVIRONMENT: Wenatchee River is below the cabin, there are trails down to the river.
Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Kevin Llewellyn:
I talked to the witness by phone:
The witness rented a cabin for four nights. It is two stories plus a loft and two decks, one above the other. She was with her sister and fourteen year old daughter. They spent a lot of time on the back deck and at the river below laughing and enjoying the site. There are two houses nearby but they did not see any people around until the fourth night.
Night #1: The witness was awake and two windows were open by her. She heard howls that came in groups from the forest to the west. She described them as a mix of a howl plus a woman screaming. There would be a howl short in duration followed by a longer howl. This would repeat followed by a pause of about thirty minutes, then more howls. The vocalizations were close and far. The witness believed it was one individual moving around rather than multiple individuals. The cabin has many windows, all without curtains or blinds and she did not want to look out as she was nervous.
Night #2: Repeat of the first night.
Night #3: The howls began as before but then she heard 3 single wood knocks over the next hour. The knocks were so clear and loud, she thought they were just outside the cabin. After the knocks, there was thumping on the lower deck at the back of the cabin. This thumping continued for five to ten minutes. The cabin has a motion light but it is not on the back deck.
Night #4: All three people listened but there were people driving in for a long weekend. No vocalizations or knocks were heard.
The witness grew up in Idaho and has a lot of camping experience. She has never heard vocalizations and knocks such as these.
As an investigator, I wonder if the voices and laughter of three ladies attracted Bigfoot based on history of this Bigfoot behavior.
No foul odor was detected during any of the activity.
