About 25 years ago, I interviewed a logger in Vermont, who told me a story
about helping a Sasquatch.
He found it trapped under a log. Apparently, it had climbed over the pile,
causing one to roll down and pin it. The logger decided to kill it as it was
injured. When he pointed the gun at it, it cringed and covered its eyes as if
it knew about guns. this was such a human action that he changed his mind.
He got a Cant hook and removed the log. The creature crawled away into a
thicket adjoining the log yard.
From time to time he checked on the Sasquatch. He left muskrat carcases
from his trapline, which it ate ravenously.
It was very shy and wouldn't come out in the light. After a few months it healed
up enough to move on. The initial interaction happened at twilight, so he didn't
get a really good look at it. He said it appeared to be about 6 feet tall and not
massively built like most stories. I guessed that it was probably adolescent.
The man was matter of fact, and had no reason to lie about it and wasn't seeking
publicity. I found him believable.
Do I believe in Bigfoot/Sasquatch/Yeti? I believe in the phenomenon, but don't
offer any conclusions.
I got interested after meeting a Dr Warren Cook, who was a professor of American
Indian Studies. He had become interested from Amerindian stories.
The best evidence that he had was a long hair found at the site of some 20 inch tracks
near Rutland Vt. the hair was unlike any hair of any known North American animal. It
was at least 7 or 8 inches long and and thicker than a hog bristle.
This was before the days of inexpensive DNA testing.
After Dr Cook's death another
researcher stole much of his materials, so I have no idea of what happened to the hair .
I stopped researching and have lost track of my notes on this case. I concluded that
it was unlikely that I would find any real answers with my available resources.
I offer no hard conclusion about the nature of these beasts, though I lean toward the
possibility that they are transdimensional.
