I don't know whether or not this was bigfoot, I somehow doubt it, but maybe...
My parents, when I was a kid, raised rabbits for food; and my job was to make sure they had food and water. Normally an easy enough job even for a
ten year old kid. Anyhow, one night my parents and two older sisters and my little brother were gone. Don't remember where...anyhow it was just my
older sister (galloping hordes, coincidently enough) and me and the two family dogs. I was headed out to check and makesure the rabbits all had
enough food and water for the night, I was about halfway to the cages when I heard something rustleing behind the cages. Couldn't see anything,
didn't smell anything, but being a ten year old kid and a bit of a coward
. I headed for the house at just under the speed of sound, came crashing
through the kitchen door and told sis all about it. She being much braver than I, or foolish, convinced me to go with her to check it out further.
Not being total fools we took the dogs with us. Now our dogs were a big ole collie named Princess, and a musclebound springer spaniel named Rex. Now
Princess was not a fool she wanted nothing to do with it. She didn't take one step in the direction of the Rabbit hutches, Rex started that way with
us a little behind him...he got with in I'd say 20 to 25 feet than he made this little whining noise and bolted for the house. Now to Rex, us kids
were his puppies, he'd die to protect us, nothing and no one got between him and his kids. Except that night... Galloping Hordes and I, and I
remember this clearly, exchanged a look, than we watched our big tough not scared of nothing dog streaking for the house like his ass was on fire.
Needless to say, we followed almost as fast.
We called the cops when we got to the house. I can only imagine what the officer on the other end must have been thinking. Panic stricken kids on
the other end of the phone. Anyway, cops showed up shortly and went out to the hutches and looked around and found nothing rabbits were ok, no
tracks...nothing. About that time our parents showed up. Dad went out and looked around, he was going to get mad, but than noticed that the dogs
would have nothing to do with the area around the hutches. He wasn't angry after that.
The second part of the episode was about a year and a half later...
This time something did get into the rabbits. All were dead, and a couple had been torn in half, no blood, no tracks, here is the most frightening
aspect of this episode...no screams, no sounds out of the ordinary. This happened at night, and we didn't find them 'til the next morning. I've
no idea what did this...I somehow doubt it was bigfoot, but there it is.
