Suspected Sasquatch squealing studied
Seattle (AP) – Like a Las Vegas comic impersonating James Cagney, the elusive sasquatch might mimic coyotes in his quest to remain anonymous. Suspected sasquatch yowls on tape recordings from Washington, South Dakota and California sound like coyotes but they actually may be Bigfoot exercising his flair for impersonation, says Jon Beckjord, who heads Project Grendel, a Seattle organization studying the legendary sasquatch. Beckjord supplied tape recordings of suspected sasquatch yammering’s for analysis by University of Washington zoology professor Gordon Orians. “If these are sounds of sasquatches then they sound remarkably like coyotes,” Orians said. He concluded the sounds may or may not be Bigfoot.
The recordings were played on a sound spectrograph, which makes a printed record in hopes of finding similarities and differences in the sounds. Orians said Tuesday he uses the machine to analyze bird calls. A possible Bigfoot yowl from Little Eagle, S.D., was described by Beckjord as like “a coyote pack going crazy simultaneously at outrageously loud volume mixed in with monkey chatter.” Another sounded like car tires squealing around a corner or maybe a fingernail going down a blackboard.
At the end of one recording, made on the Lummi Indian Reservation near Bellingham 18 months ago, was a sound that Orians said he never heard before. “But I could show you bird calls that look exactly like this,” Orians said, eyeing the spectrograph chart. Orians later played a recording of a coyote and then made some comparisons. The coyote sound and the South Dakota sound were at the same pitch, but the suspected sasquatch recordings were “very, very weak” and difficult to distinguish.
Beckjord acknowledged some recordings sounded like coyotes. But he explained that sasquatch sometimes mimics other animals and could be mimicking coyotes. He said a Lummi Indian Reservation police officer played a sasquatch recording over his car loudspeaker once and two sasquatches wandered out of the woods.
Beckjord said he tried the same trick but “they didn’t respond to me. I won’t say this won’t work, but it didn’t for me. Maybe I smelled wrong to them or maybe they thought they were fooled once but not again.” Finally, the voice tests were inconclusive.
