I read that report, I don't remember whether it described the vegetation in the area.
Tracks won't neccessarily show up in thick vegetation.
Breezes can carry scents for incredible distances, especially strong ones such as the Sasquatch is reputed to carry.
Grandma didn't see it, she felt it...the grandkid apparently did see it...both noticed that the ordinary sounds of the area were abscent. Something
was up, that seems certain. But with no tracks, scat, or other indications, I'd say this'll be put down as a "almost maybe".
You know I've been wondering if there hasn't been at least a few 'Sasquatch sightings' that are actually another animal?
If the elk happens to be standing on its hind legs, maybe foraging some tender buds out of reach, and the position was somewhat contorted, I can see
it being easy to think it's some kind of strange beast.
I mean elk can be really BIG and by themselves are quite frightening (not to mention dangerous).
Not trying to debunk the report or claim that all BF sightings are elk...just offering a thought. Note they have that fur around the neck and when on
their hind legs they must be 8 feet tall. You have the bad smell and the crashing through branches and a frightened 'city slicker'...it's not such
a stretch for some stories you hear.
Good possiblity about the Elk as sightings and not Bigfoot.(post above)
One night while camping there were several small animals, perhaps smaller sized deer in the area. Something big came through the area, causing the
smaller animals to dissapear. It seemed more bear size than wolf, but could have possibly been elk, if not Bigfoot! What ever it was, it didn't
come close enough for us to recognize what it was in the dark.
