Sasquatch Observed Twice At Smithers, British Columbia

A V Factor's Note: It certainly appears that Sasquatch is showing itself more in the Pacific Northwest here in British Columbia. Also couldn't ask for a better place for it to show up, as the sightings are in my area. This of course allows myself to head to these areas for further investigation. Besides this sighting, there was another person who reported finding Sasquatch tracks in the Telkwa, B.C. area in 2008, Telkwa is only a ten minute drive to Smithers. Also, just recently (2009) there was another sighting of the Sasquatch in Moricetown, B.C., this is where I drove to and investigated good tracks of the creature, I also filmed the tracks as well. I will be replying to the person for the report below to see if any other details can be gathered.

If any other folks out there in British Columbia have found tracks, or seen Sasquatch, would you please be kind enough to drop me a line with a detailed report of what you witnessed. Also if you have taken any photos, please do send them along as well. You can file a report to Brian Vike at: Thank you.

Hi Brian, I heard about you doing your research up here last year and earlier this year. I just decided to report my sighting to you that happened in August of 2008. First of all my name is (full name removed by Brian Vike), I'm 17 years old and I live in Smithers, British Columbia. I was with two friends when the incident occurred, and I was the only one of us three to have seen the creature. (my friends did hear the sounds in the bushes though)

We were in a small forested area besides the BV hospital and across from my house talking when we all heard the sound of branches snapping in an otherwise quiet night. I turned my attention to this while my friends kept talking and I began to look through the forest to see if it was a moose, or some sort of animal.

What I saw next astonished me, and always will. I saw the outline of a 8 to 9 foot tall bipedal animal with an outstretched arm on a tree standing twenty yards away staring at me, now it was summer so the forest was grown in immensely, so I couldn't see much detail, but I could still see the outline of the massive creature. I stared at it for about 3 seconds before calling my friends over. Once I did this, the creature turned and walked through the forest and onto the road. Once I saw this, I realized that I actually saw something standing there, so I turned and ran the opposite direction and my friends did the exact same.

The next day we went back into the forest and we found many freshly made trails going through the forest, including one exactly where I said I saw the creature and the direction it went. There were also scratches on trees and many large tree branches broken. There was also a tree that was ripped partially up out of the ground. I walk through the forest at least once a day in the summer and I have never seen any of these branches or trees broken before this night.

Two nights later, one of my friends and myself were in the field across from the forest and it was an extremely foggy night. We couldn't see fifteen feet in front of us. We were sitting in the field talking when all of a sudden we heard what sounded like a huge animal crashing through the forest, which I saw the animal in before. This sound continued for five minutes, the next day we went in there and once again found huge tree branches snapped in half and even some large logs broken.

If you want to get a hold of me, just email me back I'll be glad to answer any questions and give you any details you wish to know.

Thank you to the witness for their sighting report of the creature.

Sasquatch Tracks Found At Chilliwack By The Lake

Sighting took place on the July 25, 2009 weekend.

Hi there, I have read some of your notes and find them very interesting, especially now. A few of my friends just came back from Chilliwack by the lake and had spotted what appears to be the footprints of Sasquatch, as well as having quite a trying time all night. Apparently there were approximately 4 of them, they were loud (making rustling noises and walking through the campsite) and at one point, when trying to get outside, one brushed across one of them that were still in the tent.

This is amazing to me and although the picture is not very clear and I was not there myself in person. My friend does have a couple pictures on his cell-phone of the footprint. Also something else strange happened and they are thinking that maybe it was this animal, as it was that all over the campsite. (where there was nobody else) They kept finding sticks piled up in kind of like a hut or teepee and they weren't there when they got there and there was a huge bolder placed near the tent this morning.What could that mean?

Cree Lake, Saskatchewan Sasquatch/Bigfoot Tracks

Posted: May 17, 2009

I took a telephone call from a gentleman who had been to his cabin in the Cree Lake, Saskatchewan area. It was on May 10, 2009 that he came across human like footprints which measured 18 inches in length and approximately 8 inches in width. Pictures were taken and the fellow said he would get the photos to me over the next few days.

I will update as soon as possible.

British Columbia Sasquatch Tracks In The Snow/Hair Sample Results

Posted: March 29, 2009

On March 11, 2009 Brian Vike Director of HBCC UFO Research posted a "report" on tracks/large footprints that were found in Moricetown, British Columbia by Melvina Nazeil. I ran out to the area, met Melvina and was shown the tracks in the snow. For me, there was no doubt in my mind that something large and unusual traveled through her Mother's property. Photos were taken, also a hair and blood sample collected from the scene.

Thank you to Barb Campbell, (UAD Research) the hair sample results are in. Barb did up a good report on her findings which identified the hair belonging to a Moose. I did mention this in my written report, that maybe the hair came from a Moose, but still I had no fact to say this was so and this had to be checked out in case it did turn out to be a hair from something else.

As for the blood sample, seeing the hair was found in one track along with the droplets of blood, we decided to hold off in having the blood analyzed. Mainly due to the costs and the area blood was found in. I guess if I personally had strong feelings about the blood possibly coming from something else, one might go ahead with testing, but seeing evidence is pointing towards a Moose, at least with regards to the hair sample, so pressing on with an expensive venture to have the blood tested, not going to happen at this time.

Link to analyzed results for hair sample. PDF format.

No matter what, there has been no explanation for what made all the large tracks/footprints in the snow.

Again, I would like to extend my many thanks to Barb Campbell, (UAD Research) for getting the hair sample analyzed.

Man Snaps Pictures Of 'Sasquatch Footprints' In Northern B.C.

Posted: March 11, 2009

By Ian Austin, The Province

Brian Vike believes he has photographic evidence that sasquatches exist.

No, he doesn’t have a photo of a sasquatch, but he does have a photo of a very large footprint.

The Houston, B.C.-based UFO researcher has developed a soft spot for the mythical furry creatures, and got an excited call last Sunday from the remote community of Moricetown.

British Columbia Sasquatch Tracks In The Snow/Blood Sample (Pictures)

Posted: March 11, 2009

A little history about Moricetown and it's kind people. Wet'suwet'en First Nation community is located north of the village of Smithers is called Moricetown, B.C. The Wet'suwet'en people (kyah wiget) is one of five native communities living near or on Hwy 16. The valley around Moricetown Canyon was once a traditional fishing ground visited by five clans of the area.

Fishing the Bulkley River was a big part of the Wet'suwet'en First Nation way of living. The clans would first meet in Telkwa in the spring, mainly to visit and celebrate their heritage. Then later the 13 houses would pack up the village and proceed to Moricetown for their summer fishing season.

Using gaff poles (spruce tree pole with a steel hook and bound by rope) the First Nation fisherman would wait patiently perched high above the river standing on exposed river boulders waiting to strike and hook the fish as they swim by underneath. Today, the First Nation still fish the river but use deep nets mostly.

In Moricetown, during the summer, the Wet'suwet'en First Nation people would erect smokehouses, drying racks and fish traps. The men would set out to catch fish while the women would hike up the mountain to collect herbs and medicines. After returning the women would start to preserve the catch. In the fall, after catching fish the focus of the hunt would shift to mountain goats, ptarmigan and caribou.

Once sufficient preparation was completed, the Wet'suwet'en people would hold various feasts celebrating the harvest. The general meeting of all the people was an opportunity for the chiefs to deal with clan business and for trading goods among houses.

The feasts would last for days and would be celebrated by many houses. Many feasts later the clans would start to return to their villages in preparation for winter - each clan's departure date depending on the length of the journey back to their village.

Once home the clan would work on their longhouses, stacking firewood, and finishing repairs so to securely store their food on stilts inside. During the winter the elders and their wives would prepare for next seasons hunt and children would learn about hunting while maintaining the longhouses.

Moricetown is located 30 km west of Smithers and 31 km east of Hazelton, BC on the main highway of the region known as Highway 16. Follow the signs. Cannot miss the community.

It was just another early morning in Houston, B.C. I got up and turned on the computer and we went to feed the deer which were waiting as they do most mornings. I came back in, checked my computer and there I found a few UFO sighting reports which I still have to work on, but it was a telephone call that came in that grabbed my attention. A lady by the name of Melvina was so excited to tell me what had taken place in Moricetown behind her mother's home on March 8, 2009 after dark.

On Monday evening Melvina's mother heard an awful racket/strange and loud noise coming from the back of her property. It certainly did frighten her as the sound was so very unusual and the dogs certainly were going wild over what was happening. She contacted her daughter and Melvina came down the next day to look into what took. She put on a set of snow shoes and headed out into the forest. In the open areas, (not under any trees) the snow would have been approximately a foot and a half in depth. Under the trees the snow pack was only inches deep.

As Melvina made her way over the snow and under the low hanging spruce branches she glanced ahead of her to see tracks in the snow. Even from a short distance away the tracks appeared to be unusually large. Soon she was shocked to find a large foot print that really should not have been there. Melvina did look around and after a short while she headed back to her mother's home, ran inside and told her mom what she had discovered and called the Peak FM radio station in Smithers, British Columbia as it was one of the closet media outlets. One of the staff members at Peak FM gave Melvina my telephone number and then she contacted me.

As I listened to her telling me some of the details of what she witnessed in the snow, I became more and more interested as I started to believe we may really have found something here. I asked when would it be okay for me to drive out so I could have a look at the tracks. Melvina said any time was fine with her. Knowing the incident took place sometime after dark on March 8, 2009 and I got this call on March 9, 2009. I figured I had better get going as quickly as possible before bad weather moved in. I packed the necessary things I needed, and rang around some friends looking for some snow shoes. I grabbed my backpack and headed out the door, into the truck and was driving out of Houston toward Moricetown here in British Columbia.

After my hour and a half drive I arrived in Moricetown and easily found Melvinas mother's home. There I met her mom, Melvina and three other family members. All were really kind to me, some bringing out there digital cameras to show me the pictures they took of the tracks. After seeing these I was hooked and excited to get out to the back of the property to look around and see with my own eyes.

Five of us took our time walking over the hard packed snow until reaching the area where the tracks were discovered. To my surprise and excitment there they were, just as Melvina had told me. Why I mentioned that I was surprised, is that I have taken many a long road trips to visit folks who have claimed to have had a UFO or Sasquatch encounter, only to find out someone's imagination was running a little wild! It can be more than frustrating!

Below is the first track I was shown. (Picture number 678) You will notice I do have a plastic ruler beside the foot print and this does not cover the entire length of the track. This one track measured 17 and a half inches in length and what appears to be three toes imprinted into the snow that can clearly be seen. The width across the front part of the foot (outside of left toe to outside of right toe) measures seven inches in width. The arch part of the foot measures 5 inches across and at the back of the heel, this measured 4 inches wide. It sunk down 8 inches into the snow.

Next (Picture number 679) is another look at the track from a different angle.

Next (Picture number 683) shows the length of the stride of the creature which measured 3 and a half feet in length.

What I found really interesting was that there was a creek down a very steep incline. This was some steep hill and went a long way down to the bottom. The creature walked up the hill in about a foot and a half deep snow not breaking it's stride which were close to the same length, 3 and a half feet or better.

There was also another surprise for me, in one of the tracks at the back end of the heel, there we found droplets of blood caked into the hard snow. This portion of the iced snow was dug out and brought back home with me so we could have it analyzed. Barb Campbell at UAD Research in Saskatchewan ( will be receiving the blood sample and a hair sample for testing.

Next Blood in ice, (Picture number 681)

Next (Picture number 690) is a photo of a hair sample, although very hard to view. This will be tested to see if it is anything out of the norm.

Next (Picture number 672) is another photo of the same track without ruler.

This gives an idea of what I was looking at, there are more photos, but I can't post them all.

I have added a few more pictures below.

The northern part of the province of British Columbia is certainly a hot spot for sightings of the Sasquatch. In the latter part of 2008 numerous sightings were reported to me, also Sasquatch footprints were discovered in Burns Lake by a couple of Mormons. Photos were taken of these as well. On my trip to Moricetown I found out about other Sasquatch sightings that have taken place in there last year and years past.

I should also point out, that Barb Campbell from UAD Research and myself will be interviewing witnesses and filming them this coming summer. So if you have seen our tall hairy fellow in northern British Columbia please do write with the details of what you have seen.

If anyone has any questions, feel free to drop me a line.

Sasquatch/Bigfoot Tracks Found And Filmed In British Columbia (New Pictures)

Posted: March 10, 2009

I figured I would just give a short update on the new Sasquatch goings on in Moricetown, British Columbia. I posted a note yesterday, March 9, 2009 that informed everyone that I had received a call about a Sasquatch in Moricetown, B.C. The date of the incident was on March 8, 2009. I mentioned in my post that I would make the drive to Moricetown today, which is the 10th of March. Well, I gathered everything I needed up yesterday and made the 1 hour 30 minute run to Moricetown. Since the roads were in excellent driving conditions, I figured I better get out there before more bad weather covered the area.

It was a sunny day yesterday, blue sky and what a beautiful drive through the valley looking up at the snow covered mountain peaks. It really was a good day to head out.

Anyway, I arrived at the home where the possible Sasquatch/Bigfoot tracks were discovered and met a really nice lady who had discovered the foot prints.

We chatted a while, also there were three family members there and we eventually headed into the thick forested area to look at the tracks.

I was able to view tracks from a Moose and something else which was really interesting.

There was certainly no question in my mind that what I was looking at were tracks of something that walked on two legs, large foot prints that were not just in a small area, but rather this thing traveled a great distance. Matter of fact the length of the stride of this creature was something else, on a sharp incline (downhill slope) this creature had walked up the hill in about a foot and a half of snow, sinking down with every step it took. When one sees the distance between the foot prints, this creature had some long stride. I have all the measurements for this and for the tracks themselves.

I did mention that I was told there was some scat found close to the area, this ended up being a ways away from where the tracks were and appeared to be dog scat.

I took a whole whack of photos of the foot prints, I just brought my email in and received more photos from the lady who discovered them. Also we found in one of the foot prints (I would say the back of the heel) blood. Hair was found, but I am not sure about this at this time, possibly a hair from a Moose (?) So a very interesting area for sure, there were visual sightings of a Sasquatch in this area in 2008, some reported and others I had no idea about the sightings.

In one close encounter, a Sasquatch picked up two large rocks and banged them together, this I guess was to frightened off a witness who was walking along the road. So alot coming very soon.

Also I wanted to make a note that any of the samples I got from being in the field yesterday will be shipped to my good friend Barb Campbell a Forensic Investigator for Unexplained Animal Deaths. Barb's website can be found at: Web:

Also Barb and myself will be investigating the area this summer as our Sasquatch/Bigfoot expedition will get underway. Barb and I will be filming this, interviews with eyewitnesses in which more folks have come forward and alot more.

Hope to have things posted very soon.

Take care

Sasquatch Sighting At Moricetown, British Columbia - March 8, 2009

Posted: March 9, 2009

Breaking News !

I just got off the telephone as a person called me to file a report of something unusual that took place in Moricetown, British Columbia on March 8, 2009. From what I was told there was some kind of loud sounds coming from the back end of a person's property, this happening in the dark hours. The person told another family member who was there the next day about what took place and they went out back to check to see what may have caused this commotion. The person arrived at the fence line and did see where a Moose was present as tracks from it were visible. But, what shocked them was seeing large foot prints from something. They appeared to be human in shape and hair was found in the area as well. Also human like scat is in the area. Pictures of the foot prints in the snow were taken.

Brian Vike, Director of HBCC UFO Research will be heading to the area most likely tomorrow as I have to gather some things together.

On another note, I reported a Sasquatch sighting, or three sightings in Moricetown, British Columbia I believe on January 1, 2008. I ended up having no luck whatsoever talking to these folks who claimed to have seen these creatures. Well I will be finally speaking to one of the folks who had a run in with a Sasquatch in Moricetown while they were dropping a letter into a mail box. This meeting is set up.

I will get everything posted when I get back and have time to write everything up.

Take care

Sasquatch Sighting In Fruitvale, British Columbia

Posted: February 10, 2009

Date: August 1965
Time: Daytime sighting.

Hi there, my name is (name removed). I read the Sasquatch reports and found them very interesting. I don't believe in some things I hear but, I know that the Sasquatch is real. In 1965 I was on the road Laodden Road in Fruitvale B.C., at the corner above our house. I was talking to the four friends from the (removed) family. I was about five hundred feet away from a cliff that I have climbed so many time. I saw what looked like a very big bear standing up but, it's to tall. Our friend's home was about fifty feet away, so I asked if the had binoculars. One of my friends ran and came back with a 7x35. binoculars. I watched what I first thought was bear standing up, but was totally shocked by what I saw. It was a big human like hairy man. It had to be about 9 plus tall.

I had a very good look. It stayed out in the open for about ten minutes and it walked back and forth looking over the cliff like it was trying to find a way down, then stopped and stood still. It looked our way and watched us and looked around for about 2 minutes. I made a good mental note of everything I could because I knew this is one in a lifetime chance. As it moved around I could see the face clear, very human like, but the eyebrow line was much more protruding. The face skin was darker than the human face. The mouth was wide, but it appeared that the lips were thin. As it walked, it was like a human, but the arms were a bit to long. The shoulders were round and wide and I did not see the feet.

The head was in proportion to the body as fair as I could tell, but the huge muscles from the shoulder to the head were massive. There was no neck, just a tapper from head to shoulder. The head was round above the ears and the ears did not show up to well, but I could see the shape in the hair. I watched it walk away just like a human. The body was wide and the legs were heavily muscled. I could see from the ankles up as it walked away. The cliff was about fifty feet high. As it walked away I lost view from the ankles up as the top of the cliff is flat. First back of the legs all the way up as it moved away, then the butt, back, then the shoulders neck and head and it was over. The hair was a bit shinny and was very red, about, 2" to 2" and a half long. It was a sunny day in the middle of August of 1965. A day that I think about when out hunting for moose or deer, wondering if I am in the right place at the right time again.

Thank you to the witness for their report.

Hairy Tales Of The Northwest’s Mythic Man (Sasquatch)

Posted: February 8, 2009

By: Tanya Davidson

It’s been close to a decade since I started exploring the outdoors, and I have come a long way from the city girl who had never set foot in a canoe or off a well-signed, gravelled trail—yet the true backcountry still unnerves me. As beckoning as nature is, it also boggles with its sheer adversity, challenges with its imperviousness, and taunts with its secrets. Our Northwest wilderness harbours histories that reach back at least as far as the end of the last ice age, ten to twelve thousand years ago.

The original inhabitants of this land, generation upon generation of coastal and inland First Nations, spoke of upright, long-haired wild men (and women) of the woods. Many early European settlers and their descendents encountered a similar beast (and/or his tracks, smells, sounds, or nests). Houston, Babine Lake, Grassy Plains, Moricetown, Hazelton, Terrace, Masset, Juskatla, Skidegate, Klemtu, Hartley Bay, Kemano, and Kitimaat are just some of the many locations where the Sasquatch has popped up.
