BIGFOOT Hurls Large Rocks at Witness While in New Hampshire Woods

A man is driving through New Hampshire and stops to relieve himself in the woods. He hears branches breaking when a basketball-sized rock suddenly lands a few feet from him.

I received the following account:

"I and my wife used to travel to New Hampshire from Massachusetts to buy cigarettes once a month. Anyway, on this day we decided to drive from the cigarette store to Brattleboro, Vermont along this long winding route that went through some woodsy areas.

We were about halfway along this route when we crested the top of a hill and I had to take a leak. It just so happened there was a pull-off area just under some high-tension power lines and what looked like a dirt access road for service trucks for the lines. I didn’t pull into the road but did park in the pull-off. I walked about 40 feet or so into the woods to not be seen by anyone passing on the main road and started to do my business. Then, all of a sudden, I heard something falling from or tearing through the tree branches. It startled the heck out of me. My first thought was a maybe a rotted limb had broke loose and was falling from one of the tall trees.

Then I heard the thump! I was horrified to see a boulder about the size of a basketball slam into the ground about ten feet from me. My first thought was maybe I was trespassing and someone was trying to scare me off. I yelled, "Hey, knock it off with the rocks!" No sooner did I get that out of my mouth when I heard the branches sound again from the same direction and this time I could see the branches waving and bending as another boulder was heading my way. I zipped up and beat feet back to my car as I had my two-year-old son and wife In the car with the top down. I quickly got in and tore out of there as my first thought was for the safety of them as well as myself.

My wife was asking what was all that noise and who were you yelling at. All I could reply was that some jerk was throwing rocks at me. That’s when it all really hit me these weren’t your normal-sized rocks that anybody could just throw. Not to mention that they were tearing through the tops of 50 to 80-foot maple and oak trees from a long way off. When this reality hit me I felt dizzy and dazed as to the danger I was truly in and WHO or WHAT could do that!

I got to tell you I spent years pondering and replaying that in my head never coming up with a logical reason. I even went back to the place years later to see if maybe there was a hill or ledge where those boulders could have fallen. But nope, nothing nor any property or dwellings anywhere near, just those power lines with the rutted road beneath them. It wasn’t until I was watching TV in 2015 while I was laid up with shingles and the continuous YouTube that I saw some guys in Canada had a similar thing happen while fishing on a lake. The only difference is they saw what was hurling the boulders, an 11 to 12-foot hairy creature. So I do believe I had a Bigfoot experience." E

Featured in this edition:

According to the Diné Navajo people, Skinwalkers are shapeshifting witches who conduct many terrible things. These beings can make people sick and commit murders. They are graverobbers and necrophiliacs. They are greedy and evil entities who must kill a sibling or other relative to be initiated as a Skinwalker. They supposedly can turn into were-animals and can travel in supernatural ways. I will present several real-life encounters with these malevolent beings!

I will describe the reports and incidents, and then answer all questions from the chat room.
