He heard his dogs barking, but didn’t pay any attention to them because they often “bark all night.” Local fishermen told him they’ve heard growling noises in the brush along the river.

Thirty years ago, his three daughters saw a sasquatch in the same vicinity. “It was just getting dark and it was standing by a ditch just staring at us,” says Jeanne Bob. “It was really big, black and hairy, and had a very strong smell. I wasn’t kidding then and now I really believe it.”
