It seems that the reign of terror began when residents began to find partially eaten livestock on their farms. Goats seem to have been a favorite prey. Then after these incidents, sightings began to occur. A man plowing his field at the base of the aforementioned mountain saw one of his goats fleeing as if running for his life. Indeed he was. A second look revealed that a human like creature with arms almost as long as his body was reaching for the frightened goat. Once caught, the goat was tucked under his arm and carried off into the woods at the edge of the field.

This site is not a very good one for bigfoot researchers to share and collaborate,

They say Mountain Lions don't exist in those parts either but just ask a local who has seen or heard one. They too are out there and can easily avoid detection so how hard would it be for a Bigfoot?edit on 6-7-2013 by TheLieWeLive because: (no reason given)

I've always been fascinated by bigfoot, but it's getting harder and harder for me to believe it exists. With 300,000,000 people in the US it would be almost impossible for someone to not have gotten solid evidence by now.
Also, a creature that big would have to eat a huge amount of food, and there would be some signs somewhere of either a ton of vegetation eaten, or a bunch of animal skeletons. Not to mention that way more footprints would be found. I live in Washington, and with all the people that hike, hunt and do other things outdoors there would have to be more evidence.

Well, think of this. Bears are big, and eat a huge amount of food and it actually fairly rare for the average person in the woods to run across a bear (or bear sign). The area I hunt in has a bunch of bears, but even for me its fairly rare to see bear sign, let alone a bear in the flesh.
Now if you consider a bigfoot is likely much, much more rare than your average bear and likely smarter. Then the odds of spotting one or evidence of one go down quite a bit.
JiggyPotamus - A agree. If went into the woods using the methods the guys on finding bigfoot use I'd consider myself lucky if I saw a squirrel, let alone a bigfoot.

Yeah - you never know. One story from my family. This would have been back in the early 1900's in the general area of the story in my OP. What would have been my great uncle was up the hillside picking some wild blackberries. Other relatives were working in a garden on the flat ground at the base of the hill.
They heard him scream and saw the bushes shaking. They went running up there. They found the bucket with its side caved in and a shoe. No blood, no drag marks, nothing.
They yelled, they searched and searched. That bucket and shoe were the only trace of him they ever found..
For those who are not aware of the fact, bigfoot very well do exist. I suppose for many it will take seeing one to believe, and that is slightly understandable. But all one must do is look at the plethora of credible evidence to conclude that sasquatch do exist. At the very least, someone who is aware of all the evidence available should not be able to dismiss the phenomenon as anything but what eyewitnesses claim it is, namely a giant relic hominid.
