Back in the mid-70's, when i was about 7 or 8, we would always go to my grannys house for christmas. She lived in Fort Smith Arkansas. Christmas Eve
night all the kids were playing with toys that we were allowed to open early
MY dad and the other guys were standing outside hanging out and
talking. Grannys house was very small so some people were outside most of the time to just make some space.
The guys came running inside freaking out about seeing something outside. I was scared for my dad cause non one would tell us kids what was
happening! The guys got flashlights and went outside. When they opened the door there was a rank smell coming from outside. It smelled like wild
animal, skunk, and body odor. IT was bad and strong.
This part of the story is what my dad and his brothers told us the next day. They could here things, more than one, moving in the trees. as they
walked the came up on the barn. The door was wide open. When they finally decided to go in( they were pretty scared) They found the paint that
grandpa had on the table in the barn was on the floor and spread about 10 feet high on the barn wall. the barn was old just like the house and there
were nails sticking out everywhere. one nail had a tuft of redish hair on it. So dad took it. They are convinced that it was bigfoot. There were lots
of sighting in that area during that time. My dad took pictures of the paint and had the hair in a bag. when he died in 1988 i asked mom where the
pics and hair was and she had no idea. i turned that house upside down and couldn't find it. Mom thinks he took it to work so someone could have
thrown it away after his death. I don't know if it really was bigfoot, but i have never seen my dad so scared and it has made a believer out of me.
I would love to hear your stories if you have any! Don't be shy
