Sasquatch Found in Colville Snows?
Colville, Wash. (AP) – Even the skeptics now wonder if the elusive ape-like Sasquatch lurks in their midst. To the local believers, fresh reports Tuesday of the giant animal’s presence simply confirm what they claim to have known a long time. That the creature known variously as the Sasquatch, Bigfoot or Ohma, roams the mountains near this Northeastern Washington logging town. New so-called evidence Tuesday turned out both the skeptics and the believers. Dozens of footprints – some measuring 16 inches long, with a stride averaging about 50 inches – were found in grain fields and that the community dump in Arden, a village just south of Colville.
W.W. Wendt, a state wildlife agent, led a handful of persons to mystifying tracks at the dump. There in semi frozen mud were numerous prints of a giant foot, complete with distinct toe outlines. The left print showed the hint of what one investigator said was a malformation of the box-like foot. “They’re definitely not bear tracks, or that of any other known animal,” said Ivan Marx, a former big game guide turned professional Sasquatch hunter. Others agreed.
Marx, five helpers and several hunting dogs, are combing this area in a sort of minor Sasquatch expedition sponsored by the International Wildlife Conversation Society. Inc., of Washington D.C. The private foundation has financed a year-long search of this area for the Sasquatch.
“This animal weighs about 500 pounds,” says Marx, studying the prints. “It’s not nearly as big as the one I photographed.” Marx refereed to a Sasquatch he claimed he pictured in 16 mm color film last fall in the mountains north of here near the Canadian border. At that time, he previewed the film for two newsmen, and it has been seen by a limited number of local residents and Sasquatch buffs.
Others witnessing Tuesday’s prints were William J. Harper a U.S. Border Patrolman who along with Wendt, spent their lunch hour investigating the tracks. Marx said all prints in the area were made by the same animal. The first prints made public this year were located Monday in the snow in the grain field. Ernie H. Sackman, a farmer who was loading hay nearby said, “I hadn’t seen the tracks, but they definitely weren’t made by a man using a board to make the prints.”
The band then was led to the dump where the mud prints were found. “He (Sasquatch) had been jollying around here,” said Marx, referring to the scattered pattern of the tracks. A few hundred yards away on the banks of the Colville river, prints said by Marx to be about five days old were discovered in otherwise undisturbed snow. The tracks continued for about 50 feet as though made by a two-legged creature walking toes-out. Reports of Sasquatch footprints and actual sightings have been made for years throughout the Pacific Northwest and in nearby British Columbia, as well as in other parts of the world.
Sasquatch is now being commercialized here. Reports bring tourists to the Colville area. The Sasquatch recently was chosen as the mascot for Spokane (Washington) Community College. And bumper stickers are sold which read: “Save our Sasquatch.” Norm Davis, owner of the Colville radio station, figures about 40-50 percent of the residents are “believers.” As for the skeptics, John Greene, a British Columbia journalist who follows the Sasquatch story, has written: “In my opinion there can be little value in a skepticism that questions things almost no one accepts. It is the skeptics that question general beliefs who have a contribution to make.”
