PORTLAND, Maine (Wireless Flash) -- A Bigfoot researcher is taking a
giant step for science -- he's studying the sex life of the Sasquatch.
Loren Coleman says there is a lot of information available about the
sex lives of various apes, chimps and other primates -- but very
little about how Bigfoot knocks boots.
This isn't for lack of reports. Coleman says many eyewitnesses are
willing to talk about Bigfoot breasts or penises, but researchers
are "too modest" to report the bare facts.
He says there are some amazing reports about Sasquatch sex that need
to be studied further, including one person who claims to have seen a
Bigfoot having sex with a cow.
Even stranger: Coleman says there have been at least few cases of
adult men who were kidnapped by male creatures and forced to
impregnate female Bigfoot creatures.
Bigfoot sightings happen all the time in North America, especially in
Pacific Northwest. While the media may cite two or three reports per
during spring, summer, and fall, people are probably seeing Bigfoot
finding footprints at the rate of about ten unpublicized encounters a
week. More than 550 reports a year. Year after year. Accounts of
in America go back as far as this land is mentioned in history, and in
legends and folklore long before that.
What¹s remarkable about these reports is that, despite the
evidence for the existence of Bigfoot, the media and most scientists
largely act as if the creature is a joke, a mass delusion. The truth
that at least one unknown species of primate exists in America. It¹s
story and it¹s not getting the attention it deserves.
[In Chapter 12 of his book, Loren Coleman explores one aspect of
that almost never gets mentioned -- the killer Sasquatch.]
Stories of violent Bigfoot do exist. Giant cannibals in the bush
woman are part of ancient Indian lore, although little discussed
One of the first stories among nonnatives appears in Theodore
The Wilderness Hunter, published in 1890. During the mid-1800s, two
hunters, one named Baumann, were camping in the Bitterroot Mountains,
the other side of the Rockies from Yosemite, when they were visited by
something that left giant footprints. Then at midnight they saw, in
fire¹s light, a huge upright form and smelled it, too.
The next morning, Baumann went to check traps, while his mate packed
When Baumann returned, he found his friend¹s neck broken and four
fang marks in his throat. Roosevelt added, ³The footprints of the
beast, printed deep in the soft soil, told the whole story . . . his
monstrous assailant, which must have been lurking in the woods,
for a chance to catch one of the adventurers unprepared, came
from behind, walking with long noiseless steps and seemingly still on
legs. . . . It had not eaten the body, but apparently had romped and
gamboled around it in uncouth and ferocious glee, occasionally
over and over; and had then fled back into the soundless depths of the
There are also reports of Bigfoot, the Eastern variety, killing dogs.
These begin with the hairy giant ³wildman² of Gladwin County,
who killed a dog with one blow of its hand, in October 1891, to such
as the 1970s Louisiana, Missouri, account of Momo seen carrying the
carcass of a dog. There is also the Wisconsin encounter in 2000 of a
similar beast carrying a dead and bloody animal. John Green too

secondhand stories. Two from the 1970s came to him from an
Alaska, who told of Bigfoot attacking men living on boats in the Yukon
River. Though their dogs drove off the hairy giant, the men later
The Bigfoot Bulletin of October 31, 1970, published by California
researcher George Haas, carried a fantastic letter from an army
named Nick E. Campbell at Fort Ord, California. He related that two
National Guard privates, one of them a minister, had told him that at
Longview where they lived, there were reports from about 1965 of a
hairy creature roaming the back country between there and Jefferson,
Texas. They said that the creature had reportedly killed a couple of
people. Reverend Royal Jacobs told him that as a teenager he was a
of a posse that hunted the creature and he had seen the body of a
the creature had torn apart.
Reports like this are difficult to confirm. One in my files is a UPI
clipping, dated September 20, 1965, from Jefferson, Texas, entitled
Fed Up With Monster Hunters.² Sheriff Luke Walker is quoted as being
by the Bigfoot hunters from three states who had overrun his small
northeast-Texas town since a thirteen-year-old boy came running out
woods three weeks earlier telling of seeing a big, black hairy thing.
something else happen in Jefferson that never made it to the papers?
Reports of aggressive Bigfoot still circulate in Texas.
Bigfoot, as a primate, may be no different than his supposedly more
³evolved² cousins. There are bad apples in every bunch.
