More Proof That Bigfoot Does Not Like Dogs


By now, you've probably heard all the stories about what happens to dogs after a Bigfoot encounter. The Bigfoot Chicks recently posted a story from North Carolina where carcasses of several canines were found near some large 13-14 inch, five toed tracks.

Just last month, we posted a photo (above) by Jeff Y. of a german shepherd that was supposedly found buried under some logs over Memorial day weekend. According to Jeff, the area had been a hotspot for Sasquatch activity and the most recent were some hand prints of a baby Sasquatch found the near campsite. "There were other signs that the campers had problems. We have 2 small hand prints from different times in this area that points to a baby Sasquatch in the area. The dog probably got too close to it," Jeff said.

In 2010, a North Carolina “Mountain Man” named Tim Peeler claimed he had an encounter near the South Mountains State park with a 10-foot tall Sasquatch with "beautiful hair" that was trying to attack his dog. Peeler said he probably lured the Sasquatch to him when he was using a game call to find coyote.


Here's another case of dogs allegedly being murdered by Bigfoot. 40 years ago in Louisiana, MO, people came from around the nation to help search for a mysterious beast called the "Momo". In July 11, 1972, it was reported that at 3:30 pm, Terri and Doris Harrison were playing in the back yard when they saw a "big hairy thing with a dog under its arm." They ran in the house, looked out the window and saw the creature standing in the ditch. It was about 7 feet tall and stinky. It ran on two legs they reported to Police Chief Shelby Ward. The report was carried in the Chicago Sun-Times July 21, 1972 and in the Los Angeles Herald Examiner. Here's the story from the Southeast Missourian, published on July 15, 2012:


LOUISIANA, Mo. -- The Sasquatch-like creature stood tall like a man, cradling a dead dog under one arm and growling. The stench was horrific and sickening. Then the creature darted back into the rural Missouri woods.
Or, none of that happened and teenagers punked the world.

Either way, for a couple of weeks 40 years ago, Louisiana was the center of attention as people came from around the nation to help search for the mysterious beast. People in this town are still debating whether the creature dubbed "Momo the Missouri Monster" really existed.

"I've been a hunter and fisherman all my life and I've never seen nothin'," said Bill Hoaglin, 61, the town's streets superintendent. "But who knows? They've seen things like that in many other places. You never can tell."

The Momo saga began on July 11, 1972. The Harrison family lived in a house along what was then known as Marzolf Hill. On a hot summer day, 8-year-old Terry Harrison and his 5-year-old brother, Wally, were chasing their dog through the woods.

Suddenly, 15-year-old Doris Harrison, who was inside, heard her brothers screaming, ran to the window and saw a creature she described as perhaps 7 feet tall with dark hair covering its face. It held a dead dog under its arm and blood -- apparently from the dog -- flecked the dark hair of the beast. And, ooh, that smell!

"It wasn't a man, and it wasn't a bear," said Doris Harrison Bliss, now 55. "It was something ..."

"Something you'd never seen before?" she was asked.

"Exactly!"

From there, a mix of fear and curiosity spread.

Another woman in the neighborhood reported hearing animal noises. A farmer said his dog disappeared. Maybe Momo took it! Soon, others were reporting smells, sightings of dark objects in the night, bizarre screams and cries.

"We heard it a few days later," Bliss said. "It was a roar. I've heard bobcats and other animals and it was nothing like that. My dad just started hollering, 'Y'all better go! It's coming!'"

Reports of encounters began to pile up. A man claimed he was chased by a big hairy beast with red eyes. School kids said they saw it from their classroom window. Two women picnicking near the river said Momo chased them to their Volkswagen, then displayed the humanlike intelligence to try and open the door before a blast of the horn scared it away.

Soon, Momo was a national phenomenon. News crews and other curiosity seekers found their way to Louisiana, a town of 3,300 residents about 80 miles north of St. Louis.

People began finding footprints. Clyde Penrod made a plaster cast of an alleged Momo print that daughter Christina Windmiller still keeps.

"It's not human at all," Windmiller, 41, said of the print that's about as long as a human's, but much wider. "It has a big heel and three toes."

Despite the plaster evidence, Windmiller doesn't believe Momo was real. Neither does Priscilla Giltner. The retired teacher, now 76, is certain a trio of high school boys pulled off a major hoax.

By Giltner's account, the boys fashioned a homemade monster suit they used only sporadically. They made the curious noises, planted the fake footprints, concocted the putrid smells.

"I don't think they planned for it to get as big as it did," Giltner said. "They were just bored. They didn't have anything else to do."

If they're responsible for the hoax, they've kept it to themselves.

"I will never, ever, tell their names," Giltner said. "That's their secret."

Sasquatch-like sightings have been reported in many states, but most commonly in the Pacific Northwest.

Jeff Meldrum, professor of anatomy and anthropology at Idaho State University and author of "Sasquatch: Legend Meets Science," said while no one can be certain about the existence of Momo, he believes some mysterious species exists.

"I'm trying to convince my colleagues that there is substantial evidence that there is something out there which could stand to be one of the most significant discoveries of this century," Meldrum said.

"To find a huge primate species in our own backyard that could be more humanlike, that would really be something."

Eventually, things returned to normal in Louisiana, though there have been occasional reports of other Momo sightings. The ordeal spurred a country song and for many years Louisiana hosted a "Momo Days" celebration downtown.

Today, there are no physical reminders. The Harrison house has been razed. Murals on the walls of downtown buildings depict the river, the bald eagles that nest in the area in winter, the gorgeous bluffs that surround the town. But no Momo, except in the memories of longtime residents, even skeptics like Giltner.

"There are people who think of Momo and they have fond memories," she said. "Let them have them."

This July 11, 2012, photo shows Christiana Windmiller holding a plaster footprint made by her father purportedly left by a Sasquatch-like creature in a garden in Louisiana, Mo.

  1. The camper dog in the vocal clip the other day didn't appear to like squatches either, you can tell a dog's uncomfortable with the situation when it's silent like that as they'll mostly be when them big guys are about.

  2. Dogs do that exact whimper for big Bears too....seen it many times.

    Question: Why was a small handprint found near a campsite considered a Baby Sasquatch print? What distinguished it from a human print? Me, Im automatically thinking a kid's print, unless dimensionally it couldnt be human? Thats a BIG assumption to make, just saying.

    4. I have to agree. There are so may attempts to manufacture evidence that we need to apply very strict rules of evidence. When that is done, most of the evidence fails to measure up. Just a sad reality. However, there is some that is extremely good and that is sufficient to keep the mind open to the possibility. I have no doubt we will get an answer from all the DNA work being done, particularly if the eventual data from the different groups shows identical species sequences. Maybe then science will take it seriously.

    6. I didn't really think much of it until until October 2013. I was at n.c. state park with my new Sony 3.2 digital camera. I decided to take a picture of the sunset over neuse river which was outside of what is considered the park. About a month later discovered also had what appeared to be a sasquatch standings near some timber on the river bank. No I was not Bigfoot hunting, I was trying out my new camera.

  3. I wish BF didn't like cats. I hate cats. They keep pooping in my sunflowers. Can we offer BF some cats and film the results? Is that ethical?

    Seriously though. If BF is real, dogs (wolves) would obviously be a natural enemy due to their tracking ability and pack attack behaviour. Competition for valuable resources and a threat when coupled with the no1 predator. Us.

  8. Peeler's a total attention-seeking liar, his story is complete bullshit and he lacks any sincerity when he's speaking. He sounds like some old drunk telling a tall tale, which is pretty much what he is. Yeah, he poked it in the chest and said "You go away!" That right there oughta tell anyone all they need to know.

    1. lol, did he poke it with a stick? I didnt hear that part

    2. While I believe his story is most likely the result of his own mind being berzerk-o, I didn't hear the part where he stated that he poked it with a stick.

      Are you assuming that he poked it because he had the stick in his hand and motioned it while he told the story? Or, did he say that he did indeed poke it in another interview?

  10. What's with the spike in graphic pictures on this blog. I guess it comes with the territory?

    1. Are you a grown man or woman? If so, why does it bother you? After all, they're only sketches, drawings etc etc. I'm sure most people here would rather there be sketches, drawings etc etc to view and to go along with the stories/articles. It adds some depth.

      If you're worried about your kids seeing those things, "maybe" you should monitor them.

  11. Zero reason to assume any sasquatch or any baby sasquatch here for any apparent reason whatsoever.

    More idiocy.

  12. The dog in the pic. certainly is not buried and what is on top of it is certainly not logs. A dead dog laying on the ground (not buried) with limbs on top of it (not logs) is a reach.... One of the LIMBS, not logs, is obviously cut. That doesnt say anything about who or what put it there,but it looks staged in my opinion.

  14. I'm thinking that if that dog, which seems to be a full grown German Shepard, was killed by a Sasquatch, there would have to be a lot of blood. I don't see any.

    P.S. I like the new Timmy. Keep it up. We need skeptics with an open mind that make valid contributions.

  18. Read missing 411, The book doesnt say that Bigfoot took these people but one amoung many facts is: A little girl dissappeard, was found, she was asked where she was she said the brown bear took her and wouldnt let her scream out for help. You see dogs are not the only things dissappearing.
