Bigfoot attack, miners encounter bigfoot, 3 Sasquatch attack miners in cabin near Mt St Helens, July 1924, Fred Beck recounts

Bigfoot, Sasquatch encounters have been recorded for hundreds of years. I was going through my archives recently and was reminded of one of the more famous bigfoot encounters. This was not just an encounter but an attack reminiscent of the Legend of Boggy Creek attack in Fouke County Arkansas. The miners were near Mount Saint Helens in Washington State. The miners had classic encounter experiences of seeing footprints, hearing noises and the spotting of one of the creatures. Then they had the close encounter. Fred Beck, one of the miners, recalls the incident:

“Hank, though apprehensive, was still determined. We had been hearing noises in the evening for about a week. We heard a shrill, peculiar whistling each evening. We would hear it coming from one ridge, and then hear an answering whistling from another ridge. We also heard a sound which I could best describe as a booming, thumping sound — just like something was hitting its self on its chest.”

“Hank asked me to accompany him to the spring, about a hundred yards from our cabin, to get some water, and suggested we take our rifles — to be on the safe side. We walked to the spring, and then, Hank yelled and raised his rifle, and at that instant, I saw it. It was a hairy creature, and he was about a hundred yards away, on the other side of a little canyon, standing by a pine tree. It dodged behind the tree, and poked its head out from the side of the tree. And at the same time, Hank shot. I could see the bark fly out from the tree from each of his three shots. Someone may say that that was quite a distance to see the bark fly, but I saw it. The creature I judged to have been about seven feet tall with blackish-brown hair. It disappeared from our view for a short time, but then we saw it, running fast and upright, about two hundred yards down the little canyon. I shot three times before it disappeared from view.”

“This was the start of the famous attack, of which so much has been written in Washington and Oregon papers through out the years. Most accounts tell of giant boulders being hurled against the cabin, and say some even fell through the roof, but this was not quite the case. There were very few large rocks around in that area. It is true that many smaller ones were hurled at the cabin, but they did not break through the roof, but hit with a bang, and rolled off. Some did fall through the chimney of the fireplace. Some accounts state I was hit in the head by a rock and knocked unconscious. This is not true.

The only time we shot our guns that night was when the creatures were attacking our cabin. When they would quiet down for a few minutes, we would quit shooting. I told the rest of the party, that maybe if they saw we were only shooting when they attacked, they might realize we were only defending ourselves. We could have had clear shots at them through the opening left by the chinking had we chosen to shoot. We did shoot, however, when they climbed up on our roof. We shot round after round through the roof. We had to brace the hewed-logged door with a long pole taken from the bunk bed. The creatures were pushing against it and the whole door vibrated from the impact. We responded by firing many more rounds through the door. They pushed against the walls of the cabin as if trying to push the cabin over, but this was pretty much an impossibility, as previously stated the cabin was a sturdy made building. Hank and I did most of the shooting — the rest of the party crowded to the far end of the cabin, guns in their hands. One had a pistol, which still is in my family’s possession, the others clutched their rifles. They seemed stunned and incredulous.

The attack continued the remainder of the night, with only short intervals between. A most profound and frightening experience occurred when one of the creatures, being close to the cabin, reached an arm through the chinking space and seized one of our axes by the handle (a much written about incident and a true one). Before the thing could pull the axe out, I swiftly turned the head of the axe upright, so that it caught on the logs; and at the same time Hank shot, barely missing my hand.”

 “I, myself, went back with two reporters and a detective from Portland, Oregon. We found large tracks, and they photographed them. We did not see any of the Apemen then, nor could we find the ones we had shot.”

NC bigfoot sightings, NC bigfoot, North Carolina, sasquatch, swamp ape, wild man, report sightings

NC has a long history of bigfoot encounters and reports. I have had 3 reported to me in the past year and I have recently learned of more. Even though North Carolina is the tenth most populous state, most of that population is centered in the piedmont along the I 85 corridor. NC is growing, but there are vast expanses of woodland and swamps in the mountains and eastern part of the state. There is an area of NC that I have been examining more closely and I am gathering more information for a possible expedition. It has a long history of encounters and is an ideal bigfoot habitat.

 Will Duncan, in his article “Predictability of Homin Behaviour”, reveals the ideal habitat of NC:        

“In the United States, sasquatches have been reported in every state except Hawaii. It is important that many are reported in Ohio and in North Carolina, two states where I’ve personally looked for them. Ohio has vast populated areas in the north and wooded hills in the south. Both areas get plenty of sightings. This suggests that the sasquatches don’t mind living in proximity to people, and feel confident about avoiding them most of the time. In North Carolina, by contrast, there are huge areas of woods, hills, swamps and mountains, and very few sasquatch reports. I think they are there, but have so much room to easily hide that almost nobody sees them. Any prediction of total sasquatch numbers resumes more knowledge of their nature than we presently have. They seem to be able to live all over the country, often in close proximity to people, and yet remain unproven. Apes would not be capable of this.”

Here is an excerpt from Dr. Bindernagel’s website:
“My field work began in 1975 when our family moved to British Columbia, partly in order for me to begin field work on this species.  
In 1988, my wife and I found several sasquatch tracks in good condition in the mountains not far from our home on Vancouver Island. Plaster casts which we made from these tracks provided the first tangible evidence I encountered for the existence of the sasquatch.”

Bigfoot, sasquatch, mountain gorilla

Ok, so you are still a skeptic. There is nothing wrong with that. However, have you ever seen a mountain gorilla, except in a photo? Have you ever seen a mountain gorilla skeleton? In real life, not on tv, the internet or a page, far more people have seen bigfoot than the mountain gorilla and for hundreds of years longer.

Still not convinced? Well these famous people with scientific credentials and expertise on primates are. Dr. Jeff Meldrum, of The University of Idaho, Jane Goodall, who has devoted her life to studying primates, and Jimmy Chilcutt, of the Conroe Police Department in Texas, a forensic fingerprint and footprint expert.
