I think folks here will find this video quite interesting. It was put out by the US Fish & Wildlife Service’s National Conservation Training Center (NCTC) in Shepherdstown, WV. In addition to hosting a prestigious lecture series, the NCTC invites prominent scientists, educators, and other conservationists to record one-on-one conversations that are then broadcast to all FWS stations as professional development for agency staff. This video is of a 2009 interview with USFWS wildlife biologist and educator Larry Battson about the existence of sasquatch. I had heard rumor of its existence from colleagues, but could never get my hands on a copy. Well, it looks like it finally popped up on YouTube. Enjoy!
That vocalization of the Sasquatch clan screaming is exactly what I used to hear when I was a very small child. Back then, my family lived in South East Texas. Our house was on a dead end street, and backed up to the tributary called Village Creek. It was a swamp with a deep stream and sand bar (s), and we had a large backyard. At night I’d stand in the window to get air. The attic fan was on at night and the air flowed in and out through the windows. I can recall standing there, hearing screaming coming from the back out of the woods (swamp). It was terrifying. I’d go wake my dad & he’d say, it’s coyotes, go to sleep. I knew good and well that was no coyote. And, although I was little, I still remember it.
I heard Larry speak at a conference in VA about 5 years ago, and He talked about this video. But he would never share it. I finally saw it a few months ago. Would have loved to be a fly on the wall during this lecture.
