- This report starts in mid October 2001. While in the
Canadian Tire parking lot, Dan, a long time acquaintance came up to me
and started telling me about three Sasquatch that had been hanging around
his property the whole summer the pervious year (2000). when I asked him
why he waited a whole year to tell me this, he said that he didn't know
who to contact. It was only when his grandchildren saw my name on the web
did he learn of my interest in the Sasquatch. Arrangements were made to
visit him at his home to get more details.
- Dan's house is the last one on the left hand side of
the road. Behind the lot and running back along the street for three quarters
of a mile is a large area of undeveloped crown and park land. Behind the
houses there is also a natural gas pipeline and the clearing for it is
called the Pipeline Road. During the recession of the early 1980's a make
work program, the heavy brush and scrub trees were removed and the area
thinned out. A number of access trails were made by cutting the trees close
to the ground. This area is well used by dirt motorcycles, mountain bikes,
horse riders and hikers.
- Above: Pipline Road behind Dan's home looking
south towards Old Lakelse drive and the bench where it connects to old
Lakelse Drive. Drive on the left runs into Dan's yard. Pictures taken in
mid January, 2003. a few days later it snowed.
- It is in this area, surrounded by houses and buildings
that the Sasquatch were for the whole summer.
- In early May 2000, Dan's seventeen year old granddaughter
accompanied by a large sized dog was walking along Pipeline Road. About
150 feet past Dan's house, towards the hill was a flat area on top. Their
dog suddenly pressed against the granddaughter's legs and stopped her.
The granddaughter wondering why the dog was acting so strangely, she saw
about 250 feet ahead of her, three hairy men crossing the road from the
park to the brush on the other side. Two were brown and one was white.
- Dan knew what these hairy men were.
- Not long after this, Dan decided to take a horse back
ride in the park. The horse refused to leave the Pipeline Road and enter
the park and it was this way all summer. Also noted was all the dogs in
the neighborhood were barking much more than usual.
- Several times during the summer Dan walked through the
area looking for signs of these creatures. All that was found were places
on the moss that had a very strong unpleasant odor where the Sasquatch
had apparently bedded down. It was also noted that all the wild berries
had disappeared and no bear droppings were seen. A number of times his
horse and the neighbors dogs were acting up and nothing could be seen to
cause this at night.
- During the summer, once he hung out an old work jacket
on a high fence post that was on the bush side of his yard which he soon
forgot about. When he finally thought about it and went to retrieve it
several days later it was stinking strongly of urine and had to be washed.
Apparently this is what the Sasquatch think of us humans.
- Also during the summer a large tree came down across
Pipeline Road and Dan cut it up for firewood. It was wheel barrowed in
as it was needed. In mid October around 7:30 p.m. he went for another load
of wood. With him was a Husky breed of dog that he was looking after. When
he was heading out he noticed a group of kids on the road and they were
taking their time in going home as it was getting dark.
- When Dan reached the firewood which was at the location
where the granddaughter was when she saw the hairy men. The dog was some
distance further down the road investigating the roadside. Just as the
first piece of wood landed in the wheelbarrow a loud scream came out of
the bus across the Pipeline Road from the parkland and where the dog was
sniffing around. The dog was paralyzed and didn't know what to do, but
came to Dan when he was called.
- He could also hear the voices of the concerned kids on
the Road. The wheelbarrow was loaded and they started back. As they neared
the fence of his property line there was another loud scream from the bush
on the same side of the road which made the dog whimper with fear. The
kids who were on the road had heard enough. From their scared voices and
running feet it was obvious that they were clearing out.
- Meantime, Dan was trying to calm the dog and at the same
time talk to the creatures in the bush with a soothing voice that meant
no harm. By now it was too dark to see any thing in the bush, but there
were more screams. What he did was a number of "ough,ough,ough and
some chatter which gradually moved away. It appears that there were at
least two at this spot. It is my feeling that the screaming was at the
dog for being so close and not at Dan.
- A few days later, Dan began to make the sounds that he
had heard and all the dogs within hearing distance would start barking.
By mid November the dogs would no longer bark so franticly, so Dan tired
his horse again. This time it went into the park. The dogs and horse knew
that the Sasquatch were around even if the people didn't. Even with heavy
use, these creatures despite their huge size managed to stay out of sight
for the most part.
- This is the next report on the Sasquatch. On the previous
report Dan had first told me that in mid October 2001 what had happened
the previous year (2000). Dan was rather hard to get a hold of at his home.
Being retired and a widower, plus living alone he likes to spend a lot
of time shooting the bull at the local watering hole. because of this the
final details were not obtained until November 24, 2001.
- Above: Terrace Mountain as seen from the road
scales looking northwest. The white spot is a rock the graduation class
usually paint their year on. The Sasquatch rock was in line to the left
in the center of a discontinued power line which is the brown strip.

- During the summer of 2001 there were no signs of Sasquatch
in the park area. When mushroom picking season arrived, the park area became
rather crowded so he went up Terrace Mountain. he also took his dog with
him. while he was looking for mushrooms the dog was doing his own exploring.
Dan's dog started a howling session so Dan went to investigate. When he
arrived to where his dog was he saw about a 4x6 foot flat rock, on the
rock were three big piles of strange looking scat. (animal droppings) Dan
knew there weren't from a bear. Also his dog has never showed the slightest
interest in bear droppings before. However the dog went owly over these
scats. They were not touched but Dan kept a lookout for the creature after
that. He has been up the mountain recently and found that recent heavy
rains had washed two of them away. One was under an evergreen tree and
was still intact. Also he had found three large footprints that has a six
foot stride across a slide area. Dan approached Mike to see if he was interested
in seeing this and would take him up on the mountain to have a look. Of
course Mike was interested in seeing the scat as he felt it could not be
faked. The only problems was that Mike is 83 years old and has arthritis
in his left knee. Dan felt that Mike could make it by using his cane, so
the next day, November 25, 2001 we went up to retrieve the scat, taking
along an ice cream bucket and some plastic to pick it up.
- Above: Scat picked up November 24, 2002. Weight
was one pound, four ounces.
- It all was as Dan had described it. There were only stains
on the rock where the two other scats had washed down the sides. The base
of the rock was checked and there was nothing there. I'm looking around
and wondering what attracted the creature to this spot so often as there
was no food here. Dan had already figured it out. This rock was in the
center of a now discontinued power line right of way. a hundred yards below
was a good view of a nature hiking trail. Below that was a busy road with
a bridge across the Skeena River. It was the ideal place to do some people
- The scat was put in the pail and it was off to look at
the tracks, there were three in an almost straight line across a narrow
shale slide area. The footprints were just oblong depressions, four inches
deep and about six feet apart. Dan is 6 ft 2 and weighs 280 pounds and
left no visible footprints on the slide area, even just below the Sasquatch
tracks. From this observation how much would a 10 foot tall Sasquatch weigh?
- The scat weighed one and a quarter pounds. It was loaded
with plum stones as if the creature had raided someone's orchard. About
1000 feet away on a bench was a sizeable housing area. Another member who
drives a taxi counted nine plum trees in that area. Even though word had
gone around that something was in the area .. nobody had reported seeing
anything like this creature. During the summer of 2003, full reports were
sent to the Washington State University, Oregon Field Guide and a B.C.
Anthropologist. None replied even though they regularly appear on TV documentaries.
A check was also made to the B.C. government and they have no testing facility
for this type of work. And could offer no more help.
- The plum stones that the Sasquatch ate are sharp and
rough and are in the fasces. There is some headway being made to prove
scientifically that the Sasquatch exists. In the meantime the scat was
allowed to dry out and is now one third of its original size.
- After we had picked up the Sasquatch scat, Dan told me
of an incident that took place at the home of a long time mutual acquaintance.
Due to the circumstances involved his name can't be given so we'll call
him Jim. When I arrived at his home, Jim had been expecting me to drop
by. The incident in question took place in summer around 1980. As with
most people of that time he really didn't believe in wild people living
in the woods.
- One night about two a.m. he was awakened by some noise
outside his bedroom window. There, silhouetted by the street lights, was
a large human like figure that filled much of the five feet long and 3
feet high window. He thought that it was standing on a ladder because its
head was near the top of the window which was 10 feet off the ground. Huge
hands were on the window sill. The creature that he believed didn't exist
.. was here at his bedroom window.
- Thinking that the creature was trying to break in and
fearing for his life, he hurried to the closet where he had a double barreled
shotgun and a box of shells. Quickly loading the gun he went back to the
window. There at point blank range he raised his shotgun to the center
of the forehead and let go with both barrels. One after the other right
through the glass. He then rushed to the shattered window to see the results
of his marksmanship. To his disbelief he sees a huge human like figure
high tailing it down the driveway to the road. At the speed it was going
nothing on legs would have caught it. It would have been foolhardy to go
outside in the dark, so the gun was reloaded and he went back to bed. In
the morning there were huge footprints under the window but not a drop
of blood could be found. The next question asked was about the color of
the fur and he said it was white. The last question was if this had been
reported to the police. His answer was that the police would never have
believed him. There was no body, no blood, and the footprints could be
- He would have probably been charged with dangerous use
of a firearm in a residential area. The houses across the street were peppered
with bird shot. However enough velocity was lost so no windows were broken.
No damage was noticed. And no reports were made to the police.
- It is safer to talk about it now as there is less skepticism
that the Sasquatch exists. So what happened here ???? We can surmise that
the creature saw movement in the room and decided to exit in a hurry. It
moved just far enough aside for the hail of pellets to miss its head and
ended up with a good scare and badly ringing ears.
- There were no more reports of a Sasquatch peeking into
any house windows. However, in my talking to loggers, there was mention
of a Sasquatch doing similar things on the Queen Charlotte islands. This
gives our local report some validity.
- Another report came in from a logging crew. While on
a logging site they saw at a distance, a human form. They were sure that
what they were seeing was not a human.
- I would like to request if anyone has been witness to
a Sasquatch/Bigfoot I would really like to hear the story. Thank you, Brian
