Report # 23424 (Class B)
Submitted by witness on Friday, March 21, 2008. Son and father hear possible sasquatch vocalizations in the Emigrant Wilderness

YEAR: 2007

SEASON: Summer

MONTH: August

DATE: 23

STATE: California

COUNTY: Stanislaus County

LOCATION DETAILS: Going to Pinecrest or Strawberry, then go towards the dodge ski lodge, and take the road that leads you to crab tree trail head and then Bear Lake is the first or second lake in Emigrant National Wilderness(after the sign).

NEAREST TOWN: Pinecrest/Strawberry

NEAREST ROAD: sonora pass highway/108

OBSERVED: I was camping with my dad at Bear Lake in Emigrant National Wilderness. I had just woken up from a loud strange sound, I put my boots on and got out of the tent and heard a very loud howling noise comign from the top of the cliffs nearby. It was just a really loud howling sound almost like the sound a gorilla makes. But it lasted for about two hours. From 5am when the sun was just coming up til just before i ate breakfast, and that was around 7am. But during the course of this loud howling sound, what ever it had moved.. along the cliffs, I didn't see anything but I could tell the sound wasn't coming from where it was originally. The howling was echoing off the canyon walls, and it could be heard throughout the canyon, boy scouts had left very early that morning after they heard the sounds. There were many caves in the cliffs, the top of the cliff was about probably 8,000 ft, I was around 7,400 ft. What ever had been making the sounds I heard that morning eventually stopped and left the area I think, or I just didn't hear anything after that.

OTHER WITNESSES: My dad had heard some of the sounds, but he's a deep sleeper so he didn't wake up until about 6:30am. And there was another man, I think he's name was paul or shawn or something like that, but anyways he was with the boy scout troop that was there and he asked me if I had heard anything and we talked about it, and we're trying to come up with some logical reason for the sounds.

OTHER STORIES: I've heard of a few incidents in the area, more in the emigrant lake area, but thats only about 14 miles from bear lake. My biology teacher said he heard some sounds like I've heard back in 2001 about 20 or 30 miles north west of bear lake.

TIME AND CONDITIONS: It occured at about 5am to 7am in the morning, clear blue skies, the sun was just coming over the mountain tops.

ENVIRONMENT: I was on a rocky area near bear lake, the entire side of the lake I was on is completely rock. surrounded by pine trees. I was sitting in front of my tent which was about 200 ft from the lake. The sounds were coming fro the cliffs nearby, I think it was to the northeast. there were many caves in the cliffs, but inaccessible without climbign equipment.there aren't really any landmarks out there, since everything looks pretty much the same, but when your coming up to the lake, the trail sort of disappears if u don't know where your going. Theres a huge rock slab to the left of the trail.

Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Brandon Kiel:

The witness was camping with his father in a remote part of the Emigrant Wilderness. The area required a cross country hike in. There was one other group of Boy Scouts camped 75 yards away.

The witness was awakened by the sound of "howling whoops" coming from the ridge line that overlooked the lake they were camped beside. The whoops were regular and steady over the course of two hours coming basically one every 3 minutes. He describes them as "loud and from a very large animal".
The witness is self described as "knowing what most animals in the woods sound like and this wasn't a bear, elk, deer, or anything else I've ever heard".

He and his father eventually spoke to the other campers who were spooked by the incident and decided to hike out of the area.

Report # 25009 (Class A)
Submitted by witness B.L. on Saturday, November 08, 2008. Youngsters encounter large, grey creature in a sugar beet field

YEAR: 1962

SEASON: Summer

MONTH: August

STATE: California

COUNTY: Stanislaus County

LOCATION DETAILS: It was on Apricot ave. about half mile from the San Joaquin river.

NEAREST TOWN: Patterson

NEAREST ROAD: Apricot ave.

OBSERVED: While riding our bike just after sundown my dogs started going crazy, I looked at my dogs and saw that the hair on their backs was straight up. I looked in the direction they were barking and standing in a suger beet field thirty to forty feet away was a humanoid figure covered in long shaggy grey hair. This thing was massive and I would imagine it was at least eight feet tall. It didn't move - it just stood there looking at us. Needless to say in 1962 I didn't know what bigfoot was so I turned my bike around and got the hell out there. My dogs a collie and an Australian shepherd beat me home.

ALSO NOTICED: None

OTHER WITNESSES: My freind Henry K. We were just riding our bikes.

OTHER STORIES: This year my nephew told me that a friend's mother saw a white bigfoot about the same time and area.

Also, a friend's family had an unusual occurrence at their dairy farm nearby our sighting location. The circumstances seem to indicate a bigfoot was frequenting their farm.

TIME AND CONDITIONS: Hot summer eve, sun just went down and was at our backs.

ENVIRONMENT: Farm road with fields on either side. It was in a flat suger beet field. San Joaquin river was 1/2 mile away.

Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Tom Yamarone:

I spoke with the witness on April 4, 2009 and have the following details to add:

-He was 12 years old at the time and lived on a dairy farm.

-This part of Patterson, CA had small farms set approx. 1/2 mile apart in 1962. There was a pasture to the west of the sugar beet field with almond and walnut orchards north of the sighting location. A ranch house was due east and several hundred yards away. The San Joaquin River was to the east beyond the farm. It was a wild, riparian environment in the years prior to the construction of the California Aqueduct and Interstate 5 which have since altered the landscape there.

-They were the only ones out at that time on this small farm road.

-As he stated, the lighting was adequate just after sunset.

-The witness stated the creature was facing them, made no movement and no noise during the encounter.

Additional Details to the Physical Description:
-He had a good look at the creature at very close range. It had no noticeable neck; human features to the face he described as “Samoan" or like that of an African American – and no hair on the face, the arms were “massive” and he stated it had a “gorilla-looking upper body.” The hair was grey, long and shaggy on the body. He would estimate it weighed between 600 and 800 pounds. He could not recall any details about the eyes.

Other notes regarding the encounter:
--He estimates the length of the observation was 1 minute. He lost track of time and stated he was frozen in shock as he stood staring at the creature. When he did move to grab his bike and flee, his friend and dogs were a good 100 yards away, already heading away from the scene.

-As he states, they didn’t know what a bigfoot was. This was merely a monster out in the field. Over the course of time, he realized what he had encountered was a bigfoot and he developed an interest in the subject as an adult.

Report # 14338 (Class A)
Submitted on Friday, April 07, 2006. Old newspaper article (Titusville Morning Herald - Pennsylvania) about sightings near Orestimba Creek in the Diablo (Devil) Mountains

YEAR: 1870

SEASON: Fall

DATE: 10

STATE: California

COUNTY: Stanislaus County

The article below, titled "The Wild Man - What is He?", was originally published in the New York Times in 1871. Shortly afterward this article was re-printed in the Petersburg Index (Virginia), and assumably other newspapers as well.

Follow-up investigation report:

Although the journalist was indeed writing the story from Contra Costa County, the incident he was describing happened near Oristemba Creek, which is about ten miles to the south of Antioch, as he describes in the article, and is in Stanislaus County.

Several people have contacted us about these pre-1900 articles, because some of the articles mention gorillas. Some people thought gorillas were not discovered until 1902. We suspect that many people are confused on this point.

The *lowland* gorilla was discovered in 1847, and was widely popularized in America by adventure writer Paul du Chaillu in 1867.

The *mountain* gorilla, on the other hand, was not officially "discovered" until 1902.

Mountain gorillas are larger, and more charismatic, and thus get more media attention these days, but they were definitely not the first gorillas to be discovered.
