How The Term "The Sierra Kills" Was Coined
Here's an interesting tidbit for all you "Sierra Kills" buffs out there. If this story ever breaks into the mainstream, you'll be one of the few to know the origin of the term: "The Sierra Kills".
"The Sierra Kills" (a blend of the words Sierras, the region where the shooting took place and Kills, the death of at least one Bigfoot) is a term that a poster on the Bigfoot Forums creatively came up with to refer to Robert Lindsay's original "Bear Hunter's Tale" back in summer 2011. When Lindsay first caught glimpse of the three words reflecting off his granny-glasses, he instantly received chills down his spine from its magnificent beauty. "There was something thrilling, shocking, exciting, frightening and even perversely humorous in a shock/tabloid journalism way about that name, and it still sends chills down my spine to see those words, but at the same time, it gives me a thrilled smile," Lindsay said yesterday on his blog.
"It’s a creepy name for the incident, but it was a pretty creepy incident after all," he added.
