Is Bigfoot in Oregon?
People living near an Indian reservation in a remote part of the state seem to think so. They’ve been waking up to some strange sounds coming out of a nearby forest, roars and screeches that sound nothing like the wildlife they’re familiar with.
The reservation is home to about 1,500 people across 178,000 acres in Oregon’s Blue Mountains. The possible Bigfoot noises were heard near an old reservation community center just north of Wilhorse Resort and Casino.
Residents first started hearing the noises last month, and rumors quickly spread that it could be a young Bigfoot separated from its mother.
The noises of the possible Bigfoot in Oregon are so frightening that even grown men’s hair stands on end when the noises were heard, resident Sylvia Minthron told The Oregonian. Another man said his dog was too terrified of the noises to go out for a walk.
Not everyone thinks there really is a Bigfoot in Oregon, The Daily Mail notes. Others in the community think the simpler explanation is that the strange noises come from a fox or coyote.
Bigfoot, also known as Sasquatch, is known as a mysterious ape-like creature believed to inhabit forests. Sightings have been centered on the Pacific Northwest region, Oregon in particular.
So is there a Bigfoot in Oregon? Enthusiasts of the creature think that they are getting closer to finding the elusive Bigfoot, and sightings continue. Late last year, a group of hikers in Utah encountered what they thought was a bear, but then the animal turned and stood on two legs, looking very much like Bigfoot.
