We've often heard tales of Bigfoot as a gentle giant roaming the forests at night. A kindly creature who returns lost children and injured hikers to civilization. But what about their dark side?? The tales of assault and abduction? In an article by Stephen Wagner, under paranormal phenomena on about.com, he shares accounts of this less than friendly side of this hairy creature. Warning, if you see a Bigfoot and you have your wits about you, approach with caution......
Says Mr. Wagner, "You may have heard or read about many of the sightings of the elusive "hairy biped," but less known are the "close encounters of the third kind" (contact) or even the fourth kind (abduction) with Sasquatch. Yes, people have reportedly been physically attacked by Bigfoot - and even abducted by the creature. Why are these stories less known? Probably because they are so fantastic that most of these accounts are not taken very seriously; even those who think Sasquatch exists look upon these cases with a highly skeptical eye."
The article goes on to share several accounts of alleged Bigfoot aggression, the most intriguing, a story about several prospectors in 1924, Ape Canyon, Mt. St. Helens, Washington, and the interaction they had with a several creatures.
"Fred Beck and several other prospectors were puzzled by very large footprints they found in the canyon - until they encountered the beast that made them. They saw a large, ape-like creature peering from behind a tree, watching them. One of the miners leveled his rifle at the creature, shot and possibly grazed it in the head. It ran off out of sight. Later, another creature was seen by Beck. As it stood on the edge of a canyon wall, Beck shot it in the back. It fell, irretrievably, into the canyon. These acts of violence by the humans was not to go unavenged by the Sasquatch. That night, the miners' cabin was attacked by at least two of the primates. For five hours, they pounded on the door and walls, and hurled rocks onto the roof in an attempt to break in. Fortunately, the windowless cabin, built to withstand harsh winters, kept the Sasquatch from entering. As dawn approached, the creatures abandoned their assault. When the miners finally ventured outside, they found numerous Bigfoot prints all around the cabin, and a strip of wood gouged out from between two logs. (There is some evidence that this "attack" may have been a hoax, while others contend that it is true.)"
Interesting to say the least. Hoax or real???
