Two ladies were berry picking in Nunavik, which is a region in the far north of the province of Quebec home to much of that provinces Inuit
population. These people know their land like few others, and I find this to be a highly credible sighting given the source. It`s also an extremely
remote location, and seems like good habitat for the creature, given it`s also been sighted in Siberia and other arctic regions where the climates are
From the CBC:
Sasquatch sighting by Nunavik berry pickers
Two women in Nunavik had an unusual encounter while berry picking on Saturday. Maggie Cruikshank Qingalik, who is from Akulivik, Que.,
said her friend saw some kind of creature out in the wilderness. Qingalik said at first, they thought it was another person picking berries. Then
they noticed it was covered in long, dark hair.
I feel that it`s unlikely in this case that they could have mistaken a bear - there`s a hell of a lot to be said for aboriginal knowledge, and I find
it unlikely that these women hadn`t seen dozens of bears, both dead and alive.
“We weren't sure what it was first. It is not a human being, it was really tall, and kept coming towards our direction and we could tell it was
not a human,” she said. Qingalik said the creature was 10 to 15 feet tall. Pictures posted on Facebook show the alleged footprints are 40
So, what do you folks think - I`m wondering if this seems as legit to you fellas as it does to me. There`s still so much we don`t know, and anybody
familiar with the Canadian wilderness, especially in the north, will tell you that it`s vast on an almost unimaginable scale. A creature that doesn`t
want to be found would have little difficulty, even in 2012, keeping it mostly that way.
