BIGFOOT SIGHTINGS IN THE NORTHWEST, Bigfoot is back
Or maybe it is Big feet, since residents of the Lummi Indian Reservation, seven miles southeast of here have reported sighting three separate Bigfoots since October 2.
"We've had at least 100 reports, easy," said Sergeant Ken Cooper of the Tribal Police, who claims he has spotted two of the huge, hairy, ape-like creatures himself.
No humans have been attacked but cooper said two horses have had their necks ripped open and three dogs were found with their throats missing. The animal owners blame Bigfoot.
For the past 160 years there have been reports of the manlike beast, Bigfoot throughout far northern California and the Pacific Northwest but the Lummi sightings are the first reported this year. Most of the Lummi sightings have been between Smokehouse and Kwina roads about four miles apart, cooper said, and in the vicinity of "old abandoned apple and pear orchards." Maybe he or they, are just hungry," Copper mused. The Indians don't want the police to bother it or them, he said.
"They get mad when they think we are bothering it or hunting it. We're not. When we get called we go out and look. And if it comes into their yards, they yell for us. They're our biggest critics until it happens to them and then it's a different story." Copper's first personal sighting was at 2:20 a.m. October 24th, when someone said Bigfoot was tearing into a home on Scott road owned by Emma Smith 78. She fled in terror.
Cooper said when he arrived about seven people were there and had their car spotlights on Bigfoot, which was about seven and a half feet tall and appeared to be a gorilla.
He leveled his 12-gauge shotgun at it and then thinking it might be someone in a gorilla suit, I yelled, "If there's somebody just fooling around you better knock it off because we have weapons."
"The creature went into a crouch and when I got within 35 feet, it lowered itself until just its head was showing. For 20 minutes I leveled my gun at it."
