This post is going to be exclusive about the topic of reported incidents of humans shooting and/or killing Bigfoots from 1829 to the present day. I have a lot of other Bigfoot stuff to write about in my notes, but I am a bit overwhelmed by the many notes that I have. Please bear with me.

This is a post I have been working on for some time. I finally lost interest in it, but it does need a bit of updating with the Sierra Kills and the Shooting Bigfoot Rick Dyer incident. Both of these may be included in the list for this reason: the list is merely of purported or reported shootings or killings of Bigfoots by humans, and Justin and Rick definitely reported shooting Bigfoots, and frankly presented us with more evidence than most of the other folks have.


Bigfoot news July 12, 2014

This is a very long list, and here are a few examples:


June 20, 1829: Okefenokee Swamp, Georgia. A team of hunters set out in an attempt to track down and kill a Bigfoot in the swamp. After tracking for two weeks, they were set upon by the Bigfoot one night. The men opened up with all their guns, but it seemed useless. Five of the men were killed by the Bigfoot, who then tore all of the men’s heads off. The surviving men opened up on the Bigfoot, finally killing it. Reported by Augusta Chronicle, March 12, 2000 – “Hunters Told of Swamp Creature’s Attack.”

Mid to late 1800′s: Bexar, Texas. The Legend of the Converse Werewolf. A rancher sent his 15 year old son into the woods to hunt and told him not to come back until he had killed a deer. The boy never came back. They went searching for him and found his dead and mutilated body. A Bigfoot was standing over it. The rancher fired a shot and chased the Bigfoot into the woods. The rancher never made it back alive, apparently also killed by the Bigfoot. Reported by the Texas Bigfoot Research Conservancy.

1856: Ohio or West Virginia. Possible Bigfoot skeleton found with bullet holes in its skull. Reported in the Bigfoot Track Record.

Late 1800′s: Winston, Alabama. A moonshiner shot a Bigfoot that was following his mule wagon.


I have no idea if Bigfoot is real, a bear species, or a primate species, humanoid, or just mis identification, but this list is huge and I thought I would share with ATS.

wow, what a contribution...lol

anyway,

i've never seen or heard of such a massive list of actual bigfoot killings. i've only really heard one of two stories all together from people claiming to have shot and made contact with the creature. most of the time the stories, if they involve the person shooting at the cryptid, say that they always miss, or it vanishes or some other thing. it's crazy to think that if even half of these are legit that that many bigfoot have been murdered by us just for being ascared of them.

i know new york state and a few others specifically have laws that prohibit shooting or killing bigfoot because there is a clause stating that if bigfoot does exist and is discovered or seen that it is to be treated like an endangered or near extinct species and should be given the same degree of protection. that's actually something i learned recently which was really surprising. bigfoot doesn't exist but yet there are still rules in place to protect it "just in case".

it's no wonder why the government would never just come out and tell us it's for real. everyone and their mothers would be out in the woods with a shotgun and a camera hoping to get a bigfoot pelt or cut of it's foot for a souvenir.

it would be interesting to see how these list of events/places correspond with David Paulide's map of Missing 411 clusters....

Quite a list, there.
Thanks for the link...
The OP does not make clear if you are the author of the website, or if you're simply linking to it...
In any case - thanks.

Think you'll find where such rules exist, it's not so much to protect bigfoot, as to protect an upright ape species that does actually exist in the US (people). Should be quite a concern that there are armed groups of bigfooters who actually think they can shoot something that doesn't exist, yet is purported to walk upright with the same basic proportions as humans.

Sasquatch/bigfoot is a fun campfire story, but not when it gets to this point.

You would expect that, if someone shot and killed a "Bigfoot", they would go to great lengths to keep the hide. We're talking a creature that has lived in myth and legend for thousands of years, so.....where's the body?

big surprise there...you might want to read this news article...




A Bigfoot enthusiast in Chautauqua Lake, N.Y., wants sasquatches to be safe from Empire State hunters. Peter Wiemer of the Chautauqua Lake Bigfoot Expo declared in a press release that the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation put Bigfoot on the Protected Species list. Wiemer's rationale? Because there is no designated hunting season for sasquatches, they are therefore a protected species. "By not being listed in the hunting syllabus of NYS," Wiemer wrote in the release, "any non-listed species then becomes a Protected Species per my phone conversation with [DEC spokesperson] Mark Kandel." In an email to The Huffington Post, Kandel denied that his department took any such action. "New York State has taken no action with regard to listing or protecting Bigfoot," he said. But sasquatches aren't without some legal protections, according to a previous email from Kandel to Wiemer which stated that, "there is no open season on Bigfoot and they may not be taken." Though the state does not acknowledge the existence of Bigfoot, Kandel asserted, "we are confident that the current laws and regulations afford adequate protect for Bigfoot if one were to be found in New York." Kandel went on to explain that Bigfoot believers are welcome to pursue sasquatches for "the purpose of documenting their existence," provided none are harmed. This will likely come as welcome news to sasquatches, who are currently allowed to be gunned down without consequence in Texas.


Bigfoot protected in NY

or....




From Wikipedia: Read the full Wikipedia article on "Bigfoot in Popular Culture" here Skamania County, Washington passed a law regarding Bigfoot in 1969 declaring that "any willful, wanton slaying of such creatures shall be deemed a felony" subject to substantial fine and/or imprisonment. The fact that this legislation was passed on April 1 did not escape notice, but County Commissioner Conrad Lundy said that "this is not an April Fool's Day joke ... there is reason to believe such an animal exists." Hunter and Dahinden mention their own "speculation that Skamania County authorities had their ears tuned much more to the music of a publicity bandwagon than to any song of distress" for Bigfoot. Notwithstanding, the ordinance was amended in 1984 to preclude an insanity defense and to consider such a killing homicide if the creature was proven by the coroner to be humanoid. In response to Al Magnussen from the Mt. Baker Chamber of Commerce, Whatcom County, Washington, an Agenda Bill was drafted (92-247) on 6/9/91, which unanimously passed a resolution declaring Whatcom County a Sasquatch Protection and Refuge Area.



so yeah, that letter is pretty much not worth the piece of paper it's written on.

not going to debate the existence of bigfoot or sasquatch. there's literally hundreds of years of sightings and enough evidence/experiences to support that in my mind. if you don't believe that's fine. but, i wouldnt expect the chief wildlife biologist for ny to write you a letter saying, yup bigfoots real, don't shoot em though! lol

It's bigfoot, the entire subject isn't worth the paper it's written on (save for documenting a cultural myth).

No existence to debate anyway. There may have been some "hairy man" claims previously (this is an old worldwide phenomena), but the modern pop cultural fantasy of bigfoot began with hoaxes.

I always wonder how many Bigfoot sighting are people in ghillie suits.

cryptomundo.com...

By the way using a ghillie suit for a bigfoot prank is not a good idea.

Ghillie suits are NOT bullet proof.

A lot of space but not much of substance there. The modern pop cultural fantasy of big foot started with hoaxes....

I'm sorry but you clearly have a lot more to learn as modern pop cultural fantasies and hoaxes have no bearings on the actual reality concerning the actual existence of this creature.

Sasquatch goes far back in the histories of many indigenous cultures from around the world.

But hey you can believe whatever you want. You're welcome to you're own opinion.

Next....

So you apologise about making your claims before you make them, but you make them anyway? lol.

It's not difficult to show that the Wallace/Patterson/Meldrum bigfoot fantasy began with hoaxes in the '50's and continues with hoaxing delusion and charlatanry. It's a carnival sideshow, there is nothing more to it. Certainly not a real species of 8' apes running uncatalogued around every state of the US.

A fascinating phenomena from a sociological perspective though. It is possible people can see such things (or better said, the mind can interpret things that aren't really there). This could be a lot rarer in itself than it is claimed to be, as just about anything can be a "bigfoot encounter" if you wish it so.

It's a bit harder to show that a real bigfoot exists though, for obvious reasons. Got one yet, know anyone who has? Didn't think so.

A favourite is surely the "habituators" who regularly play with bigfoot, any time they like. Yet are unable to provide anything that isn't from a racoon etc...Surely, mega tsunami levels of bull---t going on there.

Ok, which ones specifically?

Where might we find the specific PG/Meldrum fantasy type of bigfoot within these cultures. Got any academic sources documenting this particular bigfoot pre 1950's?

Apart from that, indigenous people were obviously every bit as prone to cultural myths (possibly more so). It will be fascinating to see if any of these cultures begin to incorporate this modern myth of pop culture (it appears it is happening), in the same way many incorporated aspects of Christianity etc.

i was sorry to have to point out to you that what you were saying was complete nonsense. it's not my job nor my prerogative to educate or convince you concerning bigfoot. i don't really care what you believe is true or not.

if you feel inclined to actually try and learn more instead of wholly dismiss. you can do the reading for yourself. Specifically concerning the Hoopa Tribe and Bigfoot for example. Who have their own history without the help of our modern pop cultural influence.

From what I see so far I doubt it is within your capacity to educate more than unwillingness. Again, are there any academic sources documenting historical (pre '50's), regionally consistent bigfoot myths amongst amongst native North American peoples? Why would they not be consistent across the entire continent, if it really is as widespread as sightings suggest?

Are there any at all documenting belief in a real biological creature consistent with the PG/Meldrum b grade movie monster? The ones that are claimed to refer to the modern bigfoot of pop culture, usually need a lot of poetic licence and reinterpreting.

This, before we get to whether stone age mythology might accurately reflect reality anyway.

A bigfoot site isn't really the type of source I was after. They can be extremely biased and misleading. You either have a link to someone like a cultural anthropologist from the period, or you don't.

As for being complete nonsense, it can easily be demonstrated where there are no bigfoots. All you have to do is demonstrate where there actually are bigfoots..... Everything about this topic is consistent with a myth fuelled by misidentifications (sometimes purposefully), hoaxing and delusion. What is purported to show a real creature, is in fact so poor (where it isn't utterly ridiculous) that it is also consistent with this.

Bigfoot is a sociologicalphenomena that has become a quasi religion. Why such delusions persist in NA in a way that is so out of kilter with the rest of the first world is fascinating. It isn't a topic relevant to wildlife biology.

If an acorn falls in the forest and someone hears it, is it bigfoot? Sounds like a squatch.....
