Bigfoot in Pennsylvania?

Is it bigfoot?
The above photo was taken in Clinton, PA, I do not know who took the photo or who to give credit to for it. This was reportedly take in March of 2012. I have attempted to make enhancements of the photo but the sticks in the foreground makes it a little more difficult.

Here is a zoom and color enhancement of the photo
Seems pretty large

And here is another attempt with some different color adjustments

I really don't know if this is a real bigfoot or not but it very well could be. The figure does appear to be pretty large. If anyone knows more about this photo and who originally took it, let me know and I'll be sure to give credit for it.

Thanks

Possible Bigfoot Photo!

Could this be a bigfoot watching from the tree line? (Slightly left of center)

This picture of a possible bigfoot comes to us from Albert Fuhs. It was taken a long times ago, Albert now has much better equipment and is currently working on a film with Todd Standing. Albert say he knows this photo is not very good but says it is a real sasquatch. Albert estimates the height of this sasquatch at about 8 foot tall.

Here is a zoomed and enhanced version of the above photo.

You can see what appears to be a figure.

At this time there is no set date for the release of the upcoming film by Albert and Todd, but I will pass along anything I find out.

Thanks

Awesome Sasquatch Footage Reviewed



I was ask by youtube user "XxTheUnexplainedXx" to review the video "Awesome sasquatch footage". So this is the results of that review. I have zoomed and color adjusted some of the video.
This video has several red flags for me but everyone should make up their own mind about it.

One thing you should know is that I google searched for "Richard Evans sasquatch researcher" but could not find anyone fitting the search. You would think someone with 40 years of research would be easily found. There have been other videos from this same location, the very same patch of woods, but not with this back story.
Thanks

Ghost at the Court House

Actual Court House Building

Over the years I have actually been involved in some ghost "sightings." Here I'd like to tell you about one of the earliest ones.

Back in the 1980s I was Supervisor of Bell County Dispatch which handled telephone and radio calls for the Bell County Sheriff's Department, the Pineville Police Department and the Bell County Volunteer Fire Department. At that time Dispatch was located in the basement of the Bell County Court House.

The person who worked the midnight shift, from 12:00 midnight to 8:00 a.m., was a lady named Pat Whitt. Pat had told me that two or three times during the last month or so she had heard someone on the upper floors opening and closing doors. There wasn't supposed to be anyone else in the building during those hours except for the state police troopers who had an office next door to dispatch who would come into the building occasionally to do paper work.

I discussed this with Bell County Volunteer Fire Department Chief Earl BeBusk, who also had office space close to dispatch. We decided to have a group of volunteers on stand-by and the next time Pat heard the doors opening and closing she was to call me and we would search the building from top to bottom.

A few weeks went by before I got the call from Pat - at about 2:30 a.m. Within thirty minutes we had all of the volunteers assembled at the court house. Our game plan was to lock down the elevator and position someone in the stairwells on each floor and at each entrance to the building so that no one could enter or exit without being seen.

With the volunteers in place Debusk and I started on the second floor, checking doors. We found all the offices to be secure and the doors that didn't lock, such as the bathrooms and supply closets, revealed no one. We moved down to the first floor. While we were checking those doors we heard doors opening on the floor above. We went back to the second floor for a recheck and while doing that we heard doors opening on the first floor.

We checked and rechecked both floors several times and during each check we would hear doors above or below us being opened. And no one had been seen using the stairwells or entering or leaving the building.

We finally gave up and returned to dispatch.
Pat said, "Well? Did you find anyone?"
Knowing their had been rumors for years that the building was haunted, I told Pat this and jokingly said, "Pat, it has to be a ghost"
"Oh. That's O.K. then if it's a ghost. I just didn't want a live person in here that I didn't know about," Pat replied.

EVP Recorded During Bigfoot Research?



LT was out doing some more bigfoot research and doing some filming. After reviewing the video later he heard what appears to be an EVP and he sent it over to me. I have isolated the possible EVP and attempted to enhance the sound. It does sound like a voice. Could it just be some kind of static or interference?  Maybe but I'm not sure. Kind of weird.
If I remember correctly LT had told be sometime back of possible supernatural things happening in his research area.

Thanks

4 Mystery Skeletons Discovered in Kentucky

Not actual bones, just used for reference


This is a guest post by Tim Cornett. Tim is a amateur Kentucky historian and author.
Tim has worked as a reporter, publisher, editor and photographer.
Find out more about Tim by Clicking Here



Several years ago Dr. James S. Golden, Jr. of Pineville told an interesting story of the discovery of skeletons on the mountain just outside of Pineville.
According to Golden, a local hunter stopped to rest just before dawn. Sitting down on what he thought was a pile of brush and branches at the bottom of a tree, the hunter discovered he was seated on a pile of what looked to be human bones.

These bones were taken to Golden, who was able to assemble four almost complete skeletons - complete except for the skulls. Golden said that the skeletons appeared to be from a race of people who were “short and stocky. The femurs were twice the diameter of a modern man’s, and shorter.” He estimated that the people would have weighed between two and three hundred pounds, based on their skeletal structure.

Without the skulls there was no way of determining more about these people. Theorizing that the bones had come from some ancient burial site on Pine Mountain, Golden, the hunter, and others scoured the mountainside for more bones, and hopefully, the skulls.
Dr. Golden’s best theory was that the bones had washed out of their resting place during heavy rains over many years and lodged against the tree where they were found. He guessed that the skulls, being round, would have rolled on down the mountain side and possibly entered the Cumberland River just south of Pineville, where US 119 meets US 25E.

The skulls were never located and Golden, unable to glean any more information from the skeletons, sent them on to The Smithsonian Institution, where presumably they rest today. (Efforts by the author to locate these skeletons have been unsuccessful; Golden forwarded them to the museum, but calls to the Smithsonian have proved fruitless in finding their exact whereabouts.)

Samuel Sasquatch by Anthony Paolucci

Samuel Sasquatch by Anthony Paolucci
Samuel Sasquatch
written by
Anthony Paolucci
 
I received this book a couple weeks ago and finally got some free time to read it. I enjoyed the book, even though it is directed towards children, it was still entertaining for me.
 
You get a glimpse of the mischievous and adventurous behavior of a young sasquatch named Samuel. Samuel finds many humans to attempt to interact with but most run away in fear but he does not give up. Samuel has a goal to make some human friends so he keeps trying.

The book has a very touching ending that is sure to tug at your heart strings just a little. 
Samuel Sasquatch is relatively a short book clocking in at only 28 total pages, including art work, but the art work is well done and compliments the story nicely.
 

So I would recommend this book if you have kids or just want a quick enjoyable read for yourself.
It is a hardcover book so it is sure to last for years and could be passed on to grand kids. It would also make a great bedtime read for you and your children.

Thanks
Tom

Ghost shows up in Basement photo?

Ghost in the basement?
This photo was reportedly taken in the 1930's by a widow woman who's husband had died of a heart attack several years prior. Did her husband show back up in the basement?
Is the photo real or fake?
I ran the photo with some software I have and it came back as a possible photoshopped detected for the image. While the analysis was not 100 percent for certain it was a photoshopped image it did point to some type of photo manipulation.
So most likely this is a fake.

Thanks

Stranded In The Company of A Legend?


Stranded In The Company of A Legend?
J.M. Bailey’s "Eve" Is A Winner

Book Review by TCC Team Member Dorraine Fisher 


I’m always on the hunt for stories about sasquatches that have a little bit different spin and flavor.

I’m often not too enchanted with bigfoot movies that portray them as being evil monsters on the hunt for humans to kill or eat.

So I was more than happy to read Eve by J.M. Bailey. This bigfoot story is, if you’re a believer, one that’s great to imagine could happen to any one of us. A young woman, Anna, decides to go hiking in the Northern California wilderness in the more volatile weather season only to have her access road be washed out by rain. Stranded miles from civilization, she’s faced with a difficult dilemma of survival when she suddenly notices an odd "tree stump" in the distance and the "most rancid, curdling stench" she could ever imagine.

Could it be?

Yes, it is. Eve is one of the more idyllic bigfoot stories in its very charm and scope, and lends a soft side to our hairy friends that many of us can relate to. And it serves as a reminder to revere and respect nature and all those things we don’t understand. As Anna experiences such horrors like being pursued by a giant male and the wonder of human-like compassion from "Eve", this story chronicles a young woman’s journey of discovery. She vows to learn as much as she can about these creatures as she knows they could, at any moment, disappear into the forest forever like legends often do.

I recommend this book to anyone who believes. But I would not recommend it for young children due to some adult language content.

All in all, I found it to be a beautiful story, fast-paced and full of insight. Definitely a winner. ******DF

Tent Video - Is it a Mask?

Is it a Mask?


Many (Including myself at one point) thinks the bigfoot seen in the Tent video is a mask (and it could be). Well I have tried to give everyone something to look for in finding a perfect match for the bigfoot in the video. If you can find a mask that matches the bigfoot in the tent video feel free to contact me. If this is a production mask that is sold, then there should be others out there of it and they should match perfectly.
I do not know if any of this story is true about the killing of the bigfoot but at this point I have not been able to debunk the video as a mask.
Thanks

"Extreme" Monster Hunter - Adam Davies Interview

Adam Davies

"Extreme" Monster Hunter
An Interview With Adam Davies
 
 
By TCC Team Member Dorraine Fisher
Professional Writer, a nature and wildlife enthusiast who has written for many magazines.


All cryptozoologists do the hard work and play an important role in proving the existence of unknown animals around the world. But only a few subject themselves to the dangers and take it to the extremes that Adam Davies has. With expeditions in the Congo, Norway, Sumatra, Russia, Mongolia, China, and the US last September, Adam’s done it all. He’s risked life and limb searching for such elusive creatures as the Alghoi Korkhoi in Mongolia, and the Mokele M’bembe in the Congo. And after his camp was approached by an "unknown creature," while working with researcher Lori Simmons, he has a new interest in our very own Bigfoot.

Davies, a civil servant in Bramhall, Stockport, United Kingdom by day, spends most of his extra money and vacation time exploring jungles, mountain peaks, and everything in between all around the world. He’s made three TV appearances on Monsterquest: The Real Hobbit, The Abominable Snowman, and China’s Wildman. And has also appeared on the National Geographic special entitled Russian Bigfoot, and is also scheduled to appear on Finding Bigfoot, the Sumatra episode, which is scheduled to air on February 17. And he’s also a really nice guy; happy to talk to anyone who would like to know about his adventures.

Dorraine: Okay, Adam, what was it that first got you started with cryptozoology in the first place?

Adam: I first developed a love of tracking animals as a child, and started off tracking animals then. I became really interested in cryptozoology as teenager when I watched an episode of Arthur C. Clarke's mysterious World series which featured Mackerle's hunt for the Mokele-Membe. I decided I would go myself and I did!

Dorraine: When people ask you what you do out there, what do you tell them? What do you call yourself?

Adam: I tell people I research unknown creatures- i.e. creatures that have not been scientifically proved yet. As such, I am a researcher. Other people have described me as an "Explorer" an "Adventurer" or a "Cryptozoologist." I’m good with any of those tags.

Dorraine: How do you plan an expedition? What’s involved? Do you have someone else do it for you?

Adam: I research the area very thoroughly based on three criteria: Are there local stories that go back [in history]? E.g. the Yeren stories go back to 6 B.C. If they are just modern stories, I am suspicious! Does the ecosystem support the plausibility of such a creature existing, and do I want to go looking for it? I do a lot of the research and planning, but I have also worked with other team members and of course local guides. It’s normally my time and money so I have to want to go, but I am always happy for others to help, and they do!

Dorraine: Have you actually seen any of the creatures you're searching for, or do you just have a

burning curiosity like so many of us?

Adam: Yes, I have seen the Seljord Serpent in Norway. When it came out of the water, it was totally

strange. It had barbs on its back, and moved in an undulating motion, just like in a 17th century
woodcut. I had a total burst of adrenaline. If I could have jumped on its back, I would have. I had a complete Captain Ahab moment! The sounds that the team generated were subsequently analyzed by the Marine Research institute in Bergen. Their conclusion: unknown species.

Dorraine: Wow! I’ll have to get back to you later on that story! When you first started doing these kinds of expeditions, did people call you crazy?

Adam: When I first started doing them I did a lot of self-justification i.e. "I am going to look for the Mokele-Membe in the Congo. I know the legends say it’s a dinosaur, but I think it might be......"

Dorraine: And has that changed now?

Adam: Years later, I don't bother. I just say it as it is. I want people to enjoy what I do, but that's up to them. I am not a politician standing for election.

Dorraine: Does being followed around with cameras all the time add pressure to
the investigations?

Adam: I am not followed around with cameras all the time. On most of my expeditions, I haven't had a TV crew with me. So I have freedom to do whatever I choose, which is invariably all about maximizing the best chance of getting any evidence of the creature I am looking for. Its my time and my money after all. If you are with a TV crew, they are obviously all about making a good show as their primary objective, so the shape of the investigation inevitably changes, but then that's understandable. The integrity of any evidence remains the same though, and they can often get stuff tested quicker because they have more resources.

Dorraine: Do the locals in your investigation areas usually cooperate pretty well with you? And do they generally have a pretty good attitude about what you're doing there?

Adam: I research each area very carefully before I go, and try to find the very best local trackers and guides to aid me while I am there. Its all about maximizing the time on the ground. I have rarely come across hostile attitudes to the expeditions I am on. Most local people in the areas I have been to are normally just interested in why I am there, as often, the areas visited could have had few westerners ever there.

Dorraine: You're in some dangerous situations sometimes. Which do you fear more? The creatures you're searching for, or the conditions you're forced to deal with in order to find them?

Adam: It depends on the country. In the Congo, it was the people, as I was shot at. I also witnessed a battle once, and had artillery flares going overhead. In most of the jungles, it’s the little things rather than the big things that will get you normally, i.e. diseases rather than Tigers. I was stuck in isolation in a hospital once! In the Mountains, it’s making sure you don't fall off!

Dorraine: What's been your scariest moment? Or can you even pick one?

Adam: Not one individually-I think see above for detail. Also, I have nearly slipped off the mountain twice now, once in Nepal and once in Russia. I have "nearly died" on a number of occasions. I am still here, so I am very lucky I suppose! Lots of occasions, lots of memories!

Dorraine: Why is it worth the risk to you?

Adam: I think this is the most difficult question to answer. Since I was a child, I have always been fascinated by whether unknown species roamed the earth, and have been in the past prepared to take enormous risks. I remember thinking before I traversed the Likoula swamps, I am not sure whether I will survive this or not, and wrote letters to friends and family in the event of my death. I guess I am just fascinated by the adventure of it all, solving mysteries, and hopefully in the case of the Orang-Pendek, doing some good by helping to preserve its ecosystem.

Dorraine: In your opinion, what is the most interesting project you've ever been involved in? Is there any one project that stands out above the rest?

Adam: The most interesting that I have been involved in is the Orang-Pendek. This is a bipedal primate that inhabits the jungles of Sumatra. Even most of the skeptics entertain the possibility that it exists. I have been on seven expeditions to look for it, and gathered persuasive scientific evidence of its existence. I have had prints cast analyzed by primatologists, and its hair structure analyzed by a scientist who was used in the Dingo baby case. They confirmed it was is an unknown species of primate.(For example, see `Edge Science Magazine-New Primate species in Sumatra). And I was totally amazed by what happened to me in the U.S. this last year though, when an unknown creature approached Lori Simmons and I when we were asleep by the campfire. That has really kindled a great interest in Bigfoot for me now.

Orang-pendek cast

Unknown in the Camp

Dorraine: When you're being your everyday self, are you always thinking about the next adventure? Or are you able to separate your two lives and function like a regular person until the next one rolls around? I guess I'm asking where your mind is on a daily basis.

Adam: Brilliant question! I do find it really hard to adjust back to the day job. I would rather do this full time. For example, after the Congo, when I had crossed the Likoula swamps. Been in a battle-dance with pygmies etc. The next day I was sitting at my desk in an office after a month away. I do work hard at my job and do it to the best of my ability. But I do long for adventure. It’s a part of me. I can't change.

Dorraine: Do you think there's a certain amount of innate wanderlust and obsession that creates the desire to do this kind of "work?"

Adam: I think to do the stuff I have, yes. But I don't want to encourage everyone to go as hard at it as I have!! Anyone who is interested in this subject I advise to start off slowly, do some good research, and if you are into doing field research, then by all means pursue your dreams. I have had some fabulous experiences. You should too.

Dorraine: Given the things you've seen all over the world, what do you say to skeptics that say Bigfoot/Yeti/Yeren/Yowie-type creatures don't exist, or probably don't exist?

Adam: Well, there is clear evidence for the existence of unknown bipedal primates in different and remote parts of the world, and I have given examples of evidence I have personally gathered here. Any tangible piece of evidence I do find is analyzed by credible independent scientists. I am not a credulous person. If I find nothing, I say so. I was quite prepared to go on BBC Radio Scotland and say the Loch Ness Monster doesn't exist for example! I think its important that skeptics approach any evidence with an open mind. These are potentially hugely important potential discoveries, and to dismiss them all without proper consideration would be a terrible mistake.

Dorraine: Is there anything else you'd like to add?

Adam: If people want to contact me, they can email me at: adamkdavies@yahoo.co.uk or Facebook

me on my personal site. I am not going to be continuing on with the Extreme Expeditions team from

now on.

Dorraine: And I understand you have a book out. Can you tell us about that?

Adam: My book is called: `Extreme Expeditions-Travel Adventures Stalking the World's Mystery Animals, and detail my adventures up until 2008. I have done plenty since then and I need to write a new book I think!!

Dorraine: We’ll be waiting for that! Thanks, Adam.

It was hard to stop with this interview. I kept thinking, while I was sitting on my couch watching TV, Adam might be on the other side of the world trying NOT to fall off a mountain in order to prove the existence of some of the strangest creatures on earth. And I realized there was so much to know, and there simply aren’t enough EXTRA hours left in my life to have asked him everything. But stay tuned. No doubt, I’ll be talking to Adam Davies again. ******DF

Cannibalism and Bigfoot?

Wendigo 1978

 
Cannibalism and Bigfoot?
The Legend Of The Wendigo


By TCC Team Member Dorraine Fisher
Professional Writer, a nature and wildlife enthusiast who has written for many magazines.



    When Algernon Blackwood wrote his classic horror tale "The Wendigo," about men tracking down a cannibalistic "wood spirit" roaming the forests of northern Minnesota, did he actually have Bigfoot in mind?

The creature in the story hardly fits the profile of a sasquatch as we know them. The Wendigo, or translated from Inuit language, "the evil that devours mankind," is the more the stuff of grade B horror movies. It was said to feast on human flesh and was believed to be responsible for many missing woodland hikers reported over the years. And a German explorer in the Great Lakes region in the 1860’s eventually translated the name to mean "cannibal."

Great Lakes Native American tribes described the creature as a kind of spirit being that reached up to 15 feet tall, with red, glowing eyes, yellow skin, matted hair, and huge fangs for devouring their victims. And it’s said that these creatures used to be human, but were, by way of some kind of magic, changed into these horrific monsters. According to Algonquin legend, whenever a human turned to cannibalism to survive in the harsh conditions of the wilds in the Great Lakes region, the Wendigo sprang to life.

So many of these kinds of these types stories around the world are believed to have been created as a warning of what would happen if we misbehave. Parents have "created" monsters for centuries to keep children out of trouble. The bogie man will get you if you leave your bed. The lake monster will get you if you go near the water. All these are designed to keep children from getting hurt, and to keep parents from worrying.

But is the Wendigo an adult version of this scenario, applied to keep people from the most unspeakable human atrocity? Or was it just a menacing Great Lakes version of Bigfoot.

True or not, the white settlers in those areas believed the legends well enough. They considered the Wendigo to be an omen of death. There were a number of sightings near Rosesu, in Northern Minnesota in the 1800’s, and after each sighting, an unexpected death was said to have occurred.

But probably the most interesting detail about these "spirit beings" is their connection to a supposed mental disorder known as Wendigo psychosis. This disorder is characterized by an unnatural desire to feast on human flesh even though normal food might be readily available. But it’s not clear whether this disorder is real or not.

There are a few stories about this including one that took place in the late 1800’s where a Plains Cree trapper’s son died and he experienced a kind of insanity in his grieving in which he killed the rest of his family members and cannibalized them. All this while he could have easily secured food from a local outpost close by. But it seems none of the stories can be substantiated and Wendigo psychosis is still somewhat of a mystery.

Often we can’t be completely sure that these legends of monsters don’t spring from Bigfoot sightings. But with so many Native American legends having been found to be at least a little bit true, we have to give the possibility a second thought. ********DF

Bigfoot Proof

What would proof of Bigfoot mean to you?


Bigfoot Proof
The Real Reason It’s So Important?

By TCC Team Member Dorraine Fisher
Professional Writer, a nature and wildlife enthusiast who has written for many magazines.



     While we’re waiting for science to do it’s thing and process DNA evidence to prove without a shadow of a doubt that other intelligent human-like creatures actually do walk the earth, the debate about their existence will still rage on. Whether you believe or not, it’s a fact in this community that we all reluctantly accept.

But why have we all become so obsessed? Is it the need to be right? Maybe, but I don’t think that’s the whole reason. Is it the need for vindication? In part, but that’s not all of it either. Is it money? Yes, that too, a little, but not necessarily. Not when so many of us do this work for very little or nothing.

There’s a little element of obsession that takes over when you’ve seen, heard, or otherwise experienced something that hasn’t been proven to exist. You know what you saw, but may not always matter. There may still a part of you that has to ask the question, "Did I really? Or did I just imagine it?"

But for those of us who’ve never actually had a sighting or been forced to struggle through the act of processing that, it’s more like just satisfying an intellectual curiosity. Or maybe it’s just fun to think about.

But for those who struggle every day to process what they saw, it becomes more of an obsession; a motivation that drives you want to know more and to understand. The real, solid proof becomes more important because maybe you DO need to vindicate yourself to some degree. That would feel good, wouldn’t it? This must surely be the case with habituators. Seeing these creatures on a regular basis when other don’t have that experience could be frustrating, and vindication might be the sweetest thing ever.

But it’s different for those who’ve just had a random sighting, face to face with legend in a split second in infinity. They are the uniquely tortured individuals in this quest. And they’re the ones I’m focused on here and now.

There’s always that miniscule, remote possibility that you didn’t see what you thought you saw. But there’s just as good a chance that you did. And when the proof finally does come, it certainly won’t end the arguments because there’s so much left to explore and learn. But maybe it will help you JUST enough. Maybe you’ll see that it’s not entirely necessary to know what you saw was real. Maybe it’s even simpler than that. If the real proof is finally already there to support what you believe, maybe that will help you relax and put it into perspective. No more stressing over possibilities. No more wondering. What you saw very well COULD have been real, and maybe that’s all you’ll need to know. We can only hope. *******DF

Investigation of Possible Bigfoot Screams from New Hampshire

Coyote track 
 A few days ago we were contacted by Tracy about a strange scream her son-in-law recorded one evening in New Hampshire. You can view the original post with the audio clip by Clicking Here.

Our very own Jason Morse got in contact with Tracy and her son-in-law Chris and set up a day to go out to the area and look for evidence.

Jason: "Didn't see any bigfoot tracks or anything, but there's so much land out there, we didn't even scratch the surface. Plenty of game, deer, coyote turkey, porcupine, and beaver tracks and evidence all over. Best part was the power lines right behind his house, and a small river, so it was a perfect place."

 
Chris and his wife said this was the first time they had heard anything but went on to say, "A while back, we came home late one night, and as we walked from the car to the house, we had "something huge" run across the yard and crash through the trees."

It is worth noting that Chris has a possible military background and is very knowledgeable and his wife is a nurse, so very respectable people.
Chris plans on setting up some game cams and doing some research himself. We will continue to work with Chris and investigate the report.

Jason said: "I think it was genuine" referring to the report.

A Race Of Giants?

A Race Of Giants?
Missionary E. Walker’s Letter...About Bigfoot?
Goliath from the Bible

It’s always interesting to me to look at old accounts of ape-like creatures from North American history. And it’s especially interesting to see how the descriptions of the creatures parallel what researchers report about them today. The similarities are sometimes astounding.

Case in point, Reverend E. (Elkanah) Walker, missionary to the Spokane Indians in 1840. In his historic letter to Reverend David Green with the office of the Secretary of the American Board of Commissions for Foreign Missions, he explains some interesting stories he’s heard from these Indians. Early accounts of a strong smell, whistling, rocks being thrown at houses, and cases of kidnapping humans that resemble the Albert Ostman account. The following is the ending passage from that letter:


… "I suppose you will bear with me if I trouble you with a little of their superstition, which has recently come to my knowledge. They believe in the existence of a race of giants which inhabit a certain mountain off to the west of us. This mountain is covered with perpetual snow. They inhabit its top. They may be classed with Goldsmith’s nocturnal class and they cannot see in the daytime. They hunt and do all of their work in the night. They are men [s ]tealers. They come to the people’s lodges in the night when the people are asleep and take them, and put them under their skins and take them to their place of abode without even waking. When they wake in the morning they are wholly lost, not knowing in what direction their home is. The account that they give of these Giants will in some measure correspond with the Bible account of this race of beings. They say their track is about a foot and a half long. They will carry two or three beams upon their back at once. They frequently come in the night and steal their salmon from their nets and eat the’m raw. If the people are awake they always know when they are coming very near, by their strong smell, which is most intolerable. It is not uncommon for them to come in the night and give three whistles and then the stones will begin to hit their houses. The people believe that they are still troubled with their nocturnal visits."

We can only imagine what Reverend Green must have been thinking as he read this.

The letter was taken from the Holland Library of Washington University and the letter in its entirety can be seen here:  HERE
