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.
