YEAR: 2019

SEASON: Summer


DATE: 22

STATE: Washington

COUNTY: Yakima County

LOCATION DETAILS: Silver beach near Rimrock lake

NEAREST TOWN: Silver beach Washington

NEAREST ROAD: Highway 12

OBSERVED: Heard at least four howls in the morning between 4-5 am at silver beach camp grounds. The sounds were about a mile away but could here clearly in the morning. Thought was wild life or maybe a person. Then looked up a video on YouTube of people using a parabolic sound dish recording Sasquatch vocalizing sounds when I arrived back home. Was able to recognize the sounds from the video to what I had heard. It was a terrifying sound. The best way to describe it was a howl sound between a man and a ape. This is the link to the video of the sounds I heard:

Hopefully this video helps or explains my experience.

ALSO NOTICED: It stopped once dawn hit.




ENVIRONMENT: Campgrounds in forest

Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Kevin Llewellyn:

I talked to the witness by phone:

He heard four howls, each about four seconds long and about ten minutes apart. They came from the same location and he could hear dogs bark in the distance after each howl.

I asked what made these unique from human vocals and he said the howls were "too deep and ape-like." The witness did research elk and other animal sounds.

The video he refers to is: You Tube, Finding Bigfoot - The Sounds of Bigfoot. He said the vocals he heard were the same as what was broadcasting in this video. The recording that was broadcasting in this video is the famous "Ohio Howl" recorded by Matt Moneymaker in 1994. See

This location is near the Class B report 62332 that happened December 31, 2018.
