The Sierra Bigfoot Shooting, One Year Later
The Yeti expedition in Russia last week have drawn the attention of many casual observers to our website. Yesterday, we received an email from Jim who asked us to clarify what the deal is with the Bigfoot shooting that took place in the Sierras.
Well Jim, here's our short version: Exactly one year ago, a man named Justin Smeja from Roseville (near Sacramento) was out bear hunting with a friend somewhere in the Sierras, perhaps near the Truckee River Wildlife area. This Justin guy said he came up to a road and saw what he thought was a black bear standing on its hind legs and waving its arms in the air. Justin felt confused and frightened, so he shot it. And then he saw another one, and he shot that one too.
As they got a closer look at the dead creatures lying on the ground, they saw that it wasn't a bear at all. Both hunters describes the creatures as "a cross between a gorilla and a bear". The story gets murky afterwards, but apparently, Justin didn't know what a Bigfoot was at the time. After learning a little more about them, he's pretty sure he had shot a baby Bigfoot and its mother.
Unbelievable right? But wait, there's more.
Justin later went to tell the authorities, but said he was laughed out of their office. So who comes to the rescue? The Olympic Project Mr. Derek Randles heard about this event from an internet forum and got in touch with Justin. Derek Randles is now Justin's boss.
Mr. Randles won't reveal much about the location or exactly what happened after he got in touch with the shooter, but Bigfoot Evidence have learned a few more details about the event that we can't reveal now.
Here's what Mr. Randles said about the Sierra Shooting and the physical evidence that was gathered:
