Trip Set to Catch ‘Abominable Snowman’
Portland (AP) – Roger Patterson, 34, onetime rodeo cowboy and now a horse rancher near Yakima, Wash, displayed today a brief film of what he called the North American version of the “abominable snowman.”
He showed it at a news conference called to publicize his plans for an expedition into the wilds of Northern California to capture one of the creatures. “A six-month expedition will cost about $100,000. That’s conservative,” he said. Patterson added he had substantial sums in prospect from individuals in Oregon, Washington and elsewhere.
In the film what appeared to be a tall, bulky, hair-covered creature walked leisurely away from the camera with one backward look. Patterson said he took the film last October northeast of Eureka, Calif., in rugged, timbered country. He said this was only one of scores of sightings of the creatures and the only time one has ever been captured on movie film. He said there were numerous reports over a number of years of them having been seen near Eugene, near Vancouver, Wash., and outside Yakima.
He displayed casts of footprints measuring just over 14 inches in length. He said the creature he saw appeared to be 7 feet tall and that a scientist at the University of British Columbia had calculated its height as 7 ½ feet.
Patterson said many scientific groups had shown interest and while many scoffed the skepticism was lessened.
