WAS IT BIGFOOT? Angelina National Forest, Texas Camper Asks

A Texas woman and her dog are camping in the Angelina National Forest when they encounter a huge, loud roaring creature that's tearing through the brush.

I received the following account:

"I had an experience in the Angelina National Forest in Texas. We were camping at a remote campground in an RV. There were only about 8 camping spots where we were. It was about a mile, mile and a half from the ranger's station, during New Year's weekend.

On Sunday morning, the day we were scheduled to go home, the RV would not start. We could get no cell reception because of the tall, heavily wooded area. My SO told me to walk up to the ranger station to see if we could borrow some tools or see if they knew of a mechanic in the area who worked on RVs. So, I took our dog, and off I went.

About a third of the way there, I got a funny feeling. Like I was being watched. Then my dog, a pit/boxer mix started growling and sniffing the air. He had all his hackles up. I heard a couple of huge snaps in the woods to my left, the dog was now growling like he was about to tear the left off something. Then came this huge loud, roar, and scream, from the same direction I heard the branches snapping. It was so loud, I could feel it as well as hear it.

When that happened my dog hunkered down and pissed with his tail between his legs. I yelled, 'Run buddy, run!' And we started running. A few more limbs snapped and my dog tried to hunker down again. So I decided to scoop him up in a fireman's carry and get the hell outta there. Well, that didn't last but a few yards, because he weighs close to fifty pounds and I am a 50-year-old woman.

Thank goodness about that time, here come the Rangers in a pickup. They stopped and I literally threw my dog in the back and told them I needed help. I tried to explain to them about the wood snapping and the loud roar, but it seemed to piss them off. So I just told them we needed tools, our RV had broken down. So they drove back to the ranger station, loaded up a toolbox, and took us back down to the RV.

We finally got the thing started and I told him about what happened and asked him if he heard anything. He said he thought he heard something but was too busy to pay it much mind.

Now I have been camping all my life, I know what a buck deer or elk sounds like, and I know what a mountain lion, bobcat, wolf, or coyote sounds like. I know what wild hogs sound like. But this sound was none of those. This cry was loud enough to shake the ground.

I have had that dog for 10 years and have never seen him that scared of anything, ever. He has chased down raccoons, armadillos, possums, and deer, and an 800 lb. steer and never backed down. So what he smelled and sensed was bad enough to make him hunker down and piss himself." M
