Bigfoot Sightings in Shasta County, California Acknowledged by U.S. Forestry Service Ranger


A Shasta County, California resident had a recent encounter with a 7-8 foot tall Bigfoot. A U.S. Forestry Service ranger acknowledged previous reports of a Bigfoot in the same area.

I recently had a conversation with a Shasta County, California resident 'LB' who had an encounter with a Bigfoot near Anderson. This incident occurred this past spring on a rural road east of Anderson.

LB was driving home from work at approximately 2:45 PM local time when she noticed movement in the trees to her right. Suddenly a 7-8 foot tall Bigfoot stepped out in front of her vehicle, so close that she had to veer right to avoid hitting it. She states that the creature cleared the rural road in 2 steps, following a game trail to her left. She had traveled another 50 feet or so beyond the point of the encounter, stopped the vehicle and backed up in order to see where the creature had gone. LB says that there is a stone quarry near the area.

She described the Bigfoot has barrel-chested with thick dark brown hair. LB didn't get a very good look at the face.

When she arrived home, she told her husband of the encounter. He suggested she contact the local U.S. Forestry Service in Redding. LB was hesitant to do this, but eventually called. She mentioned her sighting to the person who answered the call. She was told that the Forestry Service doesn't not investigate the sighting officially, but there was a 'woman' there who she could talk to. It turns out that this woman was a local service ranger.

LB described the encounter and the location. The ranger told LB that she must have seen the 'Squatch' that had been reported to her on several occasions. In fact, the ranger knew the exact trail in which this Bigfoot was seen on. When LB told me that a U.S. Forestry Service ranger had acknowledged the presence of a Bigfoot, I was somewhat surprised but not totally shocked.

It has been our experience here in Pennsylvania that no cryptid reports would be acknowledged 'officially' by the PA State Game Commission. But there are certain individual employees of the commission who would privately confirm sightings. That seems to be the case in the Mt. Shasta region of California as well.

I will continue to follow up on this incident and post any further information. Lon

Facebook event announcement: Marc & Bill Fuller - Creators of 'Beyond Explanation' - Arcane Radio

Join me as I welcome 'Beyond Explanation' creators Marc & Bill Fuller to Arcane Radio. https://www.youtube.com/c/BeyondExplanation - Marc Fuller is a Sedona, Arizona based website developer with over 25 years’ experience. A Colorado native and having an almost lifelong interest in the unexplained, his awareness began at age 10 listening to newspaper reporter and radio talk show host Bill Barker recount the search for Bridey Murphy. He continued this exploring all types of arcane information from the explorations of Terence McKenna, the science fiction of Philip K. Dick and others, to a deep appreciation of Art Bell’s Dreamland, Coast to Coast and Art's spectrum of guests and topics. All this led Marc, many years ago, to recognizing Lon Strickler’s long term, indefatigable, and virtually daily work, in researching, collaborating and sharing unexplained phenomena and observations. Bill Fuller is a Colorado native graphic artist, tech guy, and horse professional. Bill grew up listening to talk radio with his father, Marc. Some of Bill’s long-remembered favorites include Dr. Demento, Thomas Mischke, Dr. Dean Edell, and of course Art Bell. A voracious reader of classic Sci-Fi like Asimov, Bradbury, and Heinlein, young Bill also developed a keen interest in space, the future, and the fantastic. Today, Bill tries to balance his leisure time reading and enjoying the outdoors with his day job caring for horses, both for his clients and for local rescue groups and agencies. In cooperation with Lon, Marc and Bill seek to expand awareness of Lon’s work. The benefit of this will, they hope, help society realize there is a greater depth to life than most in authority will admit and help raise us to disclosure and understanding of what now seems unexplained. - This will be a very informative and entertaining show!
