Bigfoot Mischief at Work Site

Lon - here is a bigfoot story I was told by a Navy buddy when we were stationed in Bremerton, WA. He said before going into the service he worked on construction in the Sierra Nevada's of Northern California. They had many 55 gallon drums stored with gas, etc. for the equipment. On returning one morning they found the drums missing and saw large footprints going from where the drums were to the edge of a cliff. They then saw where the drums had been thrown over the cliff and landing below. These drums weighed around 500 hundred pounds and they had been carried not rolled to the edge of the cliff. JK


Tall 'Gorilla' in Michigan

“I seen a 9 - 10 foot tall gorilla in Northern Michigan in the summer of 2000, when I stopped and turned from the wind to light a cigarette. And there it was, 200 feet away, in broad daylight! Facing me, but looking back in the direction I had just come from. And it did not move a muscle. ( I had the feeling that it did not anticipate me stopping and turning from the wind to light my cigarette? And it only had enough time to turn its head to avert its eyes from me?) Then I heard a stick snap in 2 pieces just behind me. And when I turned and looked to see who was sneaking up on me. There was nothing there. When I turned to get a better look at this gorilla, it was GONE! I ran like a terrified child to the paved road and walked home looking over my shoulder the whole way.” Jay Carlsen
