Sighting Reports 2002Big Foot Visits Campground
Date of Sighting: August 31, 2002
Description (In Witness's Own Words): I was chopping wood for the fire (actually splitting wood while my fiancee used the bathroom. Noise from my firewood splitting may have masked the approach.
Lynda used the bathroom directly across from me in the trees and brush within approximately 20 feet. When finished she went to the tent walking past me. Within a short time is when I smelled the odor. I then called Lynda over and she smelled it also. Then the odor quickly went away.
It is my thought that whatever animal/bigfoot may have been attracted by the urine smell or just seeing my fiancee leave that immediate area. I feel this is very important. Plus whatever it was had to have been within ten feet or so of use observing us and was very quiet. Something intelligent in my opinion that was not bothered by human sound or sounds of splitting wood. The animal (or bigfoot) did not leave until I voiced my surprise/protest of the odor and until Lynda and I both looked in the brush and trees bordering our camp area.
Investigator's Notes: This in an interesting report, but is inconclusive because no actual visual sighting was made. Washington State has had a number of big foot (known as Sasquatch) sightings. A recent sighting had been made in the area and was under investigation by University of Washington scientists. Was the strong odor and sound due to a Sasquatch or was there a more logical explanation? This question really can't be answered given what is known.
