A listener writes “This was back in either 89-90. My age now is 50. Friends and I would go to lake shasta area california. We’d explore the cave systems and mines. We’d go above the tree line. We came across a dead black bear. There were no bites and the bear was beaten up.”
Its head was bashed/punched in and swollen. The body was beaten with swollen bumps on it. We all ran. We’d go back often looking for anything. Just adventure. We went back to what we remembered to be the area of the bear. We went on into a cave/mine. It was wide, deep and high. There was a awful odor. Some stayed back and we didn’t. We came across a bunch of dead coyotes. They were beaten badly. Swollen lumps, bashed in heads. One had a broken back. It looked like a V. We all left. We were scared, angry, yelling, very afraid, lost, pissed at each other. No one wanted to be there.
A few of us would go back often. Curious, angry, looking for answers. No one wanted to talk to the police or rangers. We thought we were tough and could find answers. This day on our way down from the rocky area heading towards the trees is when we saw it/bigfoot/human.
This creature (I say it respectfully) was just there, standing right on our path out. Not moving and just staring back. It’s distance was about the length of 3 school busses. No one moved. It began to walk towards us. Upright. It was right on us and walked passed us literally by about 6 feet. It had a face of a neanderthal. It had a broad human nose. It/creature/man had lips. It’s eyes were dark and there was a dead stare in it. The eyes definitely 100% had a white/gray film over it. It had nipples but no breast. Parts of the body had less hair. Muscles. It had less hair on it’s sides of it’s hips. The skin that I could see looked raw,dry or scaly on it’s hips, there were wrinkles on the area of the chest connecting to the shoulder. Its face was man. It had teeth, not fangs. It’s hair was black with reddish in it. Hair was longer in it’s back, back neck, shorter on head. Under the arms were long hairs. Upper arms looked like thinned hair. Legs were hairy on upper legs and shorts from knees down. Front part of the chest and stomach had hair that was either just short or thinned. This is where you could see more skin than the rest of the body, and hips, and face and I saw front neck with patches of hair.
The facial skin had was dark tank with reddish irritated areas near the under eyes crossing the top bridge of the nose. The eyes were Asian shaped. I’m 5’10, one of my friends there was 6’3. This person/creature stood about 7’7. My friend said as it passed he saw bloody claw marks on it’s upper back. This creature was very very wide, square, too thick. It’s arms were long and it’s hands were visible. As it’s arms went up it’s hands would start to close as it hit the too position. I remember this because I thought it was an expression of hate or anger and thinking it was going to grab us. I want to clarify the neck. There wasn’t a neck like a human. I’m referring it to the neck area known to us as humans. I saw flesh there. It appeared to have no neck from behind. So I’m just saying that area under its head above the chest had less hairs. I don’t recall any bloody scars.
The whole body had muscles moving under the hair. It just did. It passed. Minutes before any of us moved, or began to communicate. Minutes from walking down and the further we got we ran in a very close right formation. When I saw the creature we all had the same thought. Were dead. We had similar thoughts, our minds were trying to run but our bodies were stuck. My body felt emotions that I have never felt again. My body felt physical aches of soreness for such a long time. I had panic attacks, nightmares, anxiety, and cried a lot after. There’s no way the government doesn’t know. If a hunter shot it it would need strong ammo.
They would have realized they shot something more man than not. So saying anything could make them afraid of prosecution. I think. I just can’t see how it’s a mystery. Too big. Too, way way too easy for us to have encountered it. It wasn’t angry, scared but it was aware. I’ve never been back to that, area. When I hike, camp elsewhere I stay where the people are. I have lots of questions. Personally I told my family at the time. I think about it often, in my way. Its mouth for a second opened a little. Normal teeth. I can’t tell anyone so I’m saying it here. Non of us from then could even stand being around each other after wards. We tried. It just f$%@# with our minds. Even felt guilty for seeing it. There’s no understanding it. Its face was a man’s face.”
