Secret Expedition Hunts Bigfoot in Forests of British Columbia
Portland, Ore. (UPI) – A new, secrecy-shrouded expedition is off to the wilds of British Columbia looking for the mysterious sasquatch or Bigfoot – an ugly, hairy monster with great black eyes and monumental footprints. Members of the secret safari, triggered by a report from an Indian fisherman who said he spotted footprints 17 inches long, hope to capture the monster, tranquilize it and plant a radio in it to track its movements. In the northwest, Bigfoot’s fame rivals that of the Loch Ness Monster. There may be more Bigfoot footprints – most measuring from 16 to 20 inches – cast in plaster by those in pursuit of the legendary humanoid type creature than there are prints of famous movie stars at Grauman’s Chinese Theater in Hollywood.
More Than UFOs
There may have been more reported human sightings of these creatures in recent years from northern California to British Columbia than sightings of UFO’s. No one has ever caught one. Pictures of footprints have been made but no one has ever taken an authenticated photograph of Bigfoot itself. But Bigfoot already has been the “star” of one movie and is the subject of at least one book and many news stories. Secrecy is the watchword of the new expedition. “We don’t want the news media to go charging up there and ruin everything,” said Ron Olson of Eugene Ore., director of North American Wildlife Research, a private organization with an aim of finding a real sasquatch. Olson said Roy Lack of Astoria, Ore., is leading the new expedition.
Near Bella Coola
Olson declined to name the fisherman and exact place where the tracks were reported sighted. But he did say the search is being conducted in the Kaone Peak Area, 40 to 50 miles north of Bella Coola, B.C., near a 15,000-acre wilderness. “The fisherman told Lack he was fishing in a stream when he heard some grunting noises in the trees and brush popping,” Olson said. The fisherman said the noises followed him for about 12 miles, and then he found the big footprints. “There have been a lot of rumors, but this particular area has been the most concrete thus far. The expedition will attempt to backtrack to study creature’s movement.
Indian Legends
British Columbia Indians are old hands in reporting Bigfoot traces. The Salish tribe of British Columbia left legends about “giants” wandering the wilderness, and the descriptions generally fit Bigfoot. Olson said the area was selected for the search operation not only because of the fisherman’s sighting, but also a computer study made in 1970 indicated the area was a most likely habitat for the sasquatch.
Lack’s job is to photograph any existing Bigfoot evidence, make plaster casts of the tracks and set up watch stations, Olson said. “If possible, our group wants to try to tranquilize a sasquatch and plant a radio transmitter in the animal so we can trace its movements,” The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers was quoted in a book by Peter Byrne, who founded the Bigfoot information center and exhibition at mobile home in Dalles, Ore., in 1972. Byrne said the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers said, “If sasquatch is purely legendary, the legend is likely to be a long time dying. On the other hand, if sasquatch does exist, then with the sasquatch hunts being mounted and the increasing human population it seems likely that some hard evidence may soon be in hand.”
