Twice Told in Walla Walla
It’s a sad weekend for the School of Sasquatch Searchers. There ain’t no such animal. You may recall the news stories that emerged from Colville several weeks ago about giant tracks of a mysterious “Sasquatch” (for want of a better name) being discovered in a wooded area outside the northeastern Washington town. Now it’s laid bare as a giant hoax, and a Colville bricklayer must be laughing in his mortar. Ray L. Pickens, a 39-year old prankster, disclosed that he had executed the deception because “I just wanted to show that anybody could fake them.”
As the Associated Press reported it, Pickens explained that he cut the oversize animal-like tracks from lumber and nailed them to boots. “I wore the first set just after I made them Feb. 13,” he said. “Then the Sasquatch hunters around here started saying there was a family of the creatures. So besides, Big Foot, we made a Middle Foot and Little Foot.”
He said he had a neighbor and a child clomp around in the smaller sizes, then “we’d look at ‘em, laugh and go home.” He said the word about the hoax got around in Colville and people just encouraged him to keep the hoax going. The bricklayer said he got the idea about a year ago after there was a report of big and mysterious tracks. He just wanted to show how easy it was to make them.
