Reader Submission: Gambier Island, BC Sasquatch / Polish Werewolf Encounter

Today I received a Sasquatch encounter account and a followup from Albert Rosales that describes a werewolf incident similar to the Brazilian Werewolf Encounter I posted the previous day:

In 1973 I had one of my eeriest experiences. It was on Gambier Island, located in Howe Sound near Vancouver B.C. On the south end of Gambier are three bays, one called Centre Bay. My parents and I had tied up to a pier on a week day when no one else was around. During the afternoon I had gone up to an old house that was in ruins. As I was checking out the back of the house I heard three "whoos" from the bush right behind me. Thinking it was my dad playing jokes on me or a bear, I walked away. Whatever it was could have reached out and grabbed my shoulder. When dark came I couldn't see more than a few feet in front of me. I heard something on the shore, the same "whoos" that I heard earlier in the day. I called Dad out to the back of the boat. For several minutes we heard something splashing in the water, having a great time in doing so. A few years later I posted this encounter on a Bigfoot email subscription list. Similar encounter(s) happened on either Mt. Shasta or Mt. Rainer. Apparantly it's a sasquatches way of letting people know it is around. Since that night on Gambier Island I've heard several species of wildlife from cougar to wolf to black bear to deer, elk, moose and caribou. What I heard that night was none of the above but was distinctly ape like.

Location: Southeastern Poland

Date: summer 2012

Time: 08:00 a.m.

Somewhere in southeastern Poland, around eight in the morning in summer of 2002 I and my cousins were sitting on a bus headed out to a stay away camp where we would be for the next two weeks. On a remote road to our destination we had exited a forested area and came up on a wide field. Sitting in the back left side of the bus I looked out the right window at a small elevated area stretching from the road. Atop the small hill, I saw a large silvery figure standing upright and looking off to its side with its profile facing me. It had a long snout like a wolf and it was much taller than any man. Then from its upright position it leapt to the bottom of the small hill several times on all fours. Once at the bottom it stood upright again and it looked towards me. Needless to say, due to the bus driving onward, a thicket of vegetation that was at the bottom of the hill eventually obscured the view of this being, at which point I began to yell incoherently on the bus in broken Polish about how I'd seen a werewolf at which point everyone assumed I must be crazy. Also, in the middle of the trip at the camp, some girl stated that she'd seen a wolf looking at her directly in front of a window on the second story of the cabin she was staying in, which was also my cabin. I do not know whether I believe her or if she just wanted the attention, but certainly no one else believed her, while I tried desperately to state my case.
