SC EP:442 Sasquatch saves child

To celebrate moving to Revolver I am opening all of the shows this weekend for everyone. Next week will return to normal.

Tommy writes “I was born and raised in White Bear Lake, Minnesota. When I was growing up as a troubled youth about 11 years old I was sent away to a group home (that’s what they did in the 70’s when I was a kid. if you were deemed a ‘problem child’ or were in trouble with the law, or you were a runaway (that was me) your parents signed ‘incorrigible’ papers on you and let the County juvenile authorities place you where they decide, which may be in a home with someone who would take care of you for a period of time instead of a jail cell. They called it a ‘group home’ or foster care. So, I come from a large catholic family of 12 other siblings (I was #6) and because I kept running away from being sexually abused by my older brother. He threatened me to never tell and I didn’t,(I never told anyone about the abuse, I just kept acting out in other ways, like running away, staying out late, and skipping school etc.) my parents too busy to figure out what was up with me, turned me over to Ramsey Counties Juvenile justice system and they placed me in a ‘Group Home’ which was a man who owned a farm in northern Minnesota who would care for and hopefully turn troubled teens around before they got into real legal problems with the law and ended up in prison. This man took in 4 teens at a time and basically used us as free labor to run his farm. He had about 80 milking cows, some pigs, sheep, a couple hundred steers, etc. you know the deal.

On the outside, and to everyone else, like the county authorities, our parents, this guy looked like he was offering a service to help boys, what he REALLY was, was a 60 yr old ex military CO, child abuser who beat and tortured kids for fun. (can you frikkin believe that shit!?) and for whatever reason, he had a bad attitude about me and he physically beat me, tortured me and emotionally tormented me for 10 months. He did not beat any of they other boys, just ME. His name was Don, and he had a farm on if I remember correctly ‘Choke cherry road’. Its approx. 8 ½ miles west of Willow River, Minnesota, I believe in Finlayson township. Now this Don character was a real piece of work, He was so physically abusive to me, I actually thought I was going to die by his hands before my time was up there. I was to be there for 1 year. I lasted 10 months before the county got some report from a local constable and they pulled me from there and shut his place down. (that is another long story that I won’t go into) He did everything from poking me with pitchforks while he had me tied to a post, to whipping me with milking straps til I bled from the brass grommets. He would make me stand naked in the field from dawn til dusk and sunburn the shit out of me, and then in the frigid winter, he made me stand out in the driveway naked til I was frostbit. I have plenty of scars and afflictions to prove what I’m saying.

He would keep me out of school until my obvious bruises and cuts were healed, and then I was allowed to return to school. (I missed A LOT OF SCHOOL THAT YEAR) He beat me and He beat his cows and horses , sheep and pigs the same way, so at 12 yrs old I felt like another of his animals. OK, so I bet your wondering, “what the hell does all this have to do with bigfoot or you? and Why am I telling you my childhood abuse stories? well this is why. His farm was located down this gravel road, about 8 miles from the highway. One other farm about ½ mile down the road, otherwise no other homes, farms, nothing for 10 miles in any direction.

After many beatings, I started running away, and when I started to run away from him, he would always catch me because I didn’t know where I was, or how to get away, so I always just ran down the road until he would find I was missing and he would come after me with his old 67 Ford LTD that smelled like a cow pie inside. I would hear his car coming down the gravel road after me and I would go off road into the ditch, and hide. But he always found me and the beatings would begin again. I would have ran off the road and into the woods but I was afraid of the swamp that was on both sides of the road between the road and the woods. I would guess there was about 100 yds of swamp, then thick woods. When I did try to go off the road I would get cold and wet, and didn’t know why but I was so afraid of the swamp, I had heard howls and strange noises that I can’t explain whenever I was walking on the road and I was always afraid. but I shrugged the noises off to the local wildlife.

On one of my ‘escapes’ I ran away and the only way ‘out’ was 8 miles down the dirt road that was the only way in or out of his farm. I would run for miles and then I would hear his car coming from a long way away but with nothing but swamps on both sides of the road I didn’t know where to go and every time he would catch me he would Tie my hands together and tie the other end of the 20 foot rope to his bumper and he would make me run behind the car as he headed back to the farm. He did this several times, and every time I would get tired and couldn’t run fast enough to keep up with the car and I would always fall sooner or later and he would not stop, he would just drag me the rest of the way back to the farm. I have many scars to this day to prove what I’m explaining to you.

Again Wes, I know your thinking “what the hell does this have to do with Bigfoot??” well it will all be understood soon:

One time (the last time) I ran away and ran down the road, (BTW, NO other farms or houses on this stretch of road. very desolate, open pastures and wooded forests and a strip of swamp on both sides of the long 8 mile gravel road. I don’t know, but I believe now that this Sasquatch had watched what was happening to me, maybe only once, maybe it saw every time I was abused on that road. (I’m sure that he drug me behind the car at least 8 times over that summer) I somehow feel it (the bigfoot) understood my plight, or if it just noticed I was in trouble, or if it saw me running before and saw Don (the asshole abuser) stop and grab me smack me around and then tie me to the car and take me on another drag. Maybe it was watching the farm all summer, as my abuse was a daily thing around the farm, easy to see happening if you were watching the farm. I Don’t know. it was in approximately the same location on the same dirt road that I heard noises before in one of my escapes that this guy don would come and find me at. So it goes like this; I was running down the side of the road, I hear Don’s car coming off in the distance, so I jump off the road and down into the swamp along the road and I start heading across this swampy area, hoping to cross it to the tree line and into the forest that is beyond the swamp.

It’s getting deeper and muckier every step I take and I am panicking and struggling to get through the swamp before don’s car gets to where I was. My feet are sinking, I’m struggling every step and I’m quickly realizing that it’s too deep and I am not going to be able to cross this swamp to the tree line beyond it. Don’s car comes, I duck, Don’s car goes by, but he doesn’t notice me about 75 yds out in this swampy area. So I have avoided him for the moment but I know he will turn around and come back, as always. but now I’m stuck in the swamp and struggling to keep my head afloat and to get out. (sorry, I’m not good with distances, don’t know 50 yards from 50 feet but I think my numbers are close approximations)

I’m panicking, I’m sinking, my feet are stuck in the muck up to my waist, and the water above the muck to my chest. The more I struggle, the more I sink into the swamp muck! I’m pulling at cattails and reeds, I’m screaming and crying and wishing Don had seen me, cuz a beating is better then a drowning! All of a sudden, from the tree line, I hear this big CRASH/SPLASH about 50 feet away from me on the edge of the woods/swamp. I look up expecting to see a bear or something because it sounded like a herd of buffalo was coming out of the tree line. What do I see? It’s a MONSTER!! 8 feet tall, and massive! it’s a HUGE BIGFOOT! (back then I thought it was a MONSTER, but now I know it was a bigfoot, so I’ll just call it that) I notice right away it’s a female because of the large hairy breasts. Weird how a 12 year old in puberty will notice tits, even on a bigfoot (LOL) anyways, tits or not it’s a monster and I am screaming and struggling in this swamp and I think I’m going to drown, I stop struggling in the direction going away from the road and start struggling back towards the road but can’t get my feet loose of the muck.

I was finally able to pull my feet out of my shoes and get a few more steps, as this at least 8 feet tall brown hairy monster is coming straight towards me. I am dizzy from struggling and screaming and panicking and I have swamp water in my mouth and I’m coughing, and this Bigfoot is almost on top of me now, it never made a noise, no growling, roaring, nothing, and seemed to glide effortlessly through the swamp to me. The water seemed to only come to it’s knees and as it got to within about 10 feet of me I thought for sure it was going to just beat me or kill me and eat me or something bad. it did not. I cowered down with my hands and arms over my head as I saw the shadow of this beast surround me and then I notice this terrible stench! Like a thousand skunks and rotten meat at the same time. Worst thing I have ever smelled, ever! Then everything got silent. She/it was over the top of me and I was face down in the swamp with my hands over my head and my eyes closed tightly crying. Next I hear this beast sigh, like it changed its mind and gave up scaring me or something, hard to explain the emotion, but we both just froze for what seemed like an hour but was in reality about 10 seconds. It was like this beast woman was trying to figure out what to do with me. It had the look of intelligence, not a wild animal.

I feel this wet cold mucky hairy hand grab the back of my jacket and my neck and pull me up out of the swamp. I start flaying my feet and twisting around to get loose but it had me tight and effortlessly held me out in front of it. I started screaming and crying as it held me out in front of her and started moving swiftly towards the road. It seemed to take about 10 seconds and we were back at the edge of the ditch next to the road. It took me 10 minutes to get out there struggling all the way, but it moved smoothly and quickly back the way I came into the swamp from the gravel road in a matter of seconds. From where she picked me up to the gravel road was about 75 feet. She dropped me in the ditch, and just looked at me for what seemed like an hour but was a few seconds, the look was of sadness, of confusion, but firm too. It looked up the road towards the sound of Don’s car coming back about a ½ mile away and turned looked at me again and walked away quickly straight back the way we came from following the same path through the swamp. It was into the tree line and gone in about 20 seconds.

What I remember the most is the look on her face when she dropped me. she stood and looked at me for a couple seconds, she looked up the road where we both heard don’s car coming in the far distance, (you know the sound a car makes on gravel when there is no other noise? You can hear it break the silence from a mile away) as I said, She looks back to me and I saw this look, one of understanding, of motherly caring almost, and of concern and of ANGER all at the same time. Then she turned and moved swiftly back through the swamp to the woods on the other side of the swamp and disappeared.

What I can tell you about the face is that it reminded me of a carnival ‘bearded lady’. I know how that sounds, but she did not look like a woman, she had long wet, dark brown hair, not fur draped in her face, a long dirty beard that seemed to start at her eyes and flow all the way off the chin. And the hair was full of pine needles and twigs and clumps of mud. Oh, and the skin, was dark gray, and her hands huge with brownish long nails that looked like an eagles claw, but dirty and chipped. Huge eyes, dark deep set and angry looking, but not angry at me. And the nose was wide and flat like a boxer or something, but not human. If I had to pick a bigfoot type that she most resembled it would be a cross between ‘Patty’ but with long messy dirty hair. Maybe Like the Florida swamp creature you have seen on the internet.

I never told Don about the Bigfoot, he pulled up and saw me lying in a puddle in the ditch “your all fu**ing’ wet! Where are your fu**ing shoes? And you STINK! You’re not sitting in MY car stinkin’ like that! Get in the fu**ing trunk” He snarled, as he got out of his car and opened the trunk and pointed towards it. I was cold and wet and stinkin like a skunk and probably in shock, I was still sobbing. So I climbed in the trunk and he slammed the lid down and drove me back to the farm as he had done many times before. I was just happy he didn’t drag me this time. He made me throw the jacket away, we couldn’t get the smell out of it, and he blew it off that I somehow got tangled with a skunk. A dead skunk.

I never told anyone about the Bigfoot, who would believe me? I also believe that there was a bigfoot near me while I was picking raspberries out in Don’s back forty a couple months earlier. I was in the woods. I heard a grunt in the bushes near the wild berry patch we always went to and I had a sudden fear come over me and I ran back to the house about a mile through the woods down the tractor trail. There seemed to be something moving through the woods on the side of me, but I could never see it, I was just scared shitless of something, and I ran. I Never heard the grunting sound again until I was walking on the road near the swamp months later.

Until I started listening to your show, I figured I would take it to my grave. But you Wes, with your friendly voice and the way you make it sound ok and believable that someone saw a bigfoot and that the story should be told that I decided to at least put my encounter to paper.”

    Thank you for an early show!
    A very special thank you to our guest. It’s not at all easy to speak about abuse – even in passing – no matter how much time has gone by.
    Wes has a calm voice and a reassuring manner with his guests. Kudos for the temporary free access across the board, too.

        • Martin Z

          I listen to one show Via Stitcher and download the members only. That’s how I can tell them apart. I haven’t had a chance to read nor listen to the shows yet. I’m a truck driver and I leave tonight. I like to listen to as much SQ as possible on the road. Thanx Wes for your hard work.

        • Sue H

          Tommy wow it was so distressing to listen to you, how wrong the world was to you. I wish I could hug you and I wish I could have protected you. You are so brave to even speak of your abuse, little own this encounter. ?

          • Paula M

            I’m with Sue H. So sorry to hear about your abuse. Unfortunately that is out there for some. Thank you for sharing. I hope you are doing well my friend. God bless.

    I had read this account once before, but can’t remember where. My brother and I had a lengthy discussion about it afterwards, a few years ago. My heart hurt for the suffering this young man experienced at thee hands of this beast of a man, Don. Looking forward to hearing the from the lips account.

  3. Dovie D

    I can’t amagine the horror your guest had to live through. What a beast he had to live with for years and we thing Sasquatch is a beast. Its sad to hear who some people treat others what alone a child. My heard goes out to your guest and it is with much appreciation he has decided to share his experience with us. May God be with him all the remainder of his days. And, thank you Wes for allowing a platform for people to share.

  4. Emma G

    Oh wes, much as I love your show (been a loyal member for years) sadly this new player absolutely sucks. Never had so many streams collapse and fail to restart as this last week. What is up??

      • Emma G

        Thanks for the reply. The only other thing I see is an option to open the player in a new tab which I’ve also tried and which unfortunately seems no better. Great show but I am really struggling to listen for more than ten mins without it cutting out and freezing. Teething troubles. If it helps I’m on a moto g6 phone and using Chrome. Wonderful interviewing as ever. E

        • 10mm

          Can you just download the show by clicking on the small down arrow? Then, once the simple player opens, hit the down arrow again…I like to download the shows so I can listen even if the connection is poor. Good luck.

          • Emma G

            Absolutely. Downloading works. I just don’t want to have to download every episode and enjoy streaming them normally. This is very much less user friendly than before sadly.

      • Trudy W

        I just listened to your episode, and I was so disgusted by the way you and the animals were treated that I wanted to turn off the episode and not hear anything else. But I thought, if you could endure as an 11 year old, I could, as a grown woman.
        Anyway. I think you should get some kind of medal!
        With all the abuse you had going on towards yourself, you still, without ANY FEAR, stood up for those cows!
        You are an AMAZING person! That is why the Sasquatch saved you! ALL creatures know greatness! ??❤ Don’t EVER doubt yourself!!!

  5. Dovie D

    I can’t imagine the horror your guest had to live through as a child. What a beast he had to live with for years and we think Sasquatch is a beast. It’s sad to hear how some people treat others what alone a child. My heart goes out to your guest and it is with much appreciation he has decided to share his experience with us. May God be with him all the remainder of his days. And, thank you Wes for allowing a platform for people to share. I thought my childhood was horrible, but it doesn’t compare. I pray you got therapy to deal with the trauma. Sometimes it is best we don’t recall. Our psyche can protect us. I have worked with individuals for years who has been traumatized and it can effects anyone from all walks of life. Where the hell were your parents? Where was the state? I’m so sorry that happened to you but thank goodness for Sasquatch.

  6. Rick T

    Interesting Wes. Thanks for bringing Tommy’s story to us. And thanks goes out to Tommy for coming forward with this fascinating event in your life.

  7. Renee S

    Yes, Wes, thank you for giving others a safe place to share their encounters. You have a warm sincerity that comes through w/ ur interactions & kind words. God bless you & your family, Tommy! Thx, again, for having the courage to come forward.

  8. Wolf

    I’ve been looking forward to hearing this account since 2016 when it was first posted.
    Tommy, if you’re reading this please let me know if you want my fictional account removed or edited (I thought your name was Ken and used ‘Tommy’ for the character so if you want I can change that)
    Wes, if you read this can you please ask Tommy for me?
    I don’t want to offend in any way…

  9. Gary G

    Wow. Thanks Tommy. Very interesting encounter. Can relate to returning to a tormentor and expecting to extract a pound of flesh but walking away instead…God Bless you Tommy.

  10. Asheim

    Thank you Tommy for having the courage to share your story. I am so sorry for what you endured. It was an exceptional encounter and gives such a greater perspective of these creatures. Thanks Wes as well!

  11. Brian R

    Incredible. Thank you for your story. I deeply hope for every horrible experience you endured you have been able to generate an equal amount of strength and love for yourself and others. Again thank you. Respect.

      • Andy A

        Wolf you are a good man who is true to his word by taking down your version of Tommy’s storey. What would be great is if you could write Tommy’s whole life story with his blessing with assurances of anominity and get it published. I’m sure Christopher Noël could help with the process if this were ever an option. I would certainly buy it!

        • Tommy

          Andy, I AM writing the book, or ‘Chronicle. It’s almost done, Thank God! reliving that and many other stories about ‘monsters’ has been very stressful. The book is called “The Agony Of One Child’s Weeping” Hope you enjoy it, it took a lifetime to write..Literally..Peace to you and yours. Tommy

  12. Sandra J W

    Wow! What a story, my blood pressure rose as I listened to what this poor guy went through as a kid and thank God for this Bigfoot that saved him from drowning and he eventually was able to get away and get his life in order..you always have the best shows.

  13. Brian R

    Perhaps empathy is an ancient emotion and is the predecessor to all others. To see yourself in others. All accounts of Sasquatch “goodness” must involve empathy but not necessarily other emotions. Interestingly, empathy may drive higher order intelligence which these creatures seem to possess but in a limited fashion. Additionally, the creature, by Tommy’s impression, seemed to be combining empathy with self preservation…which requires the ability to imagine a future state….what will happen next? This is chess…regular animals don’t play this game. Only one does…humans….and maybe two…Sasquatch. This also implies at the least a semblance of culture. Really an amazing and enlightening account. Thanks again.

  14. Julie Leigh D

    That Sasquatch saved the day, for sure. I just have to say, to be fair, I spent five years in a dream fostercare situation as a teen. I’m sorry Tommy’s experience was not as wholesome, but glad he sounds like he’s found healing, somewhat, now. I believe there is a spiritual component to all healing. I know it helps to talk about it. Some people are given deeper lessons because they’re capable of handling it. Who knows, maybe Tommy was put in Don’s path because Don’s soul needed to learn a lesson about how to treat others. Don did not have an easy death. If you believe in purgatory, upon death the human soul contemplates transgressions before they’re allowed to enter the Pearly Gates. Or, he didn’t learn and he truly is burning in hell.

  15. Brian R

    I never listen to episodes again right away. Ever. Just as I rarely watch a movie for the second time. I move on.
    For this episode…I am compelled to make an exception. Now. Not just for the bigfoot component either…for whole story…all of it.

  16. Christian H

    God…who is the real animal? Us or these creatures. I wonder if they tourture children like us humans do. Between this and the hermit’s encounter, and the curious George encounter…These things must be pretty emotionally intelligent in their own way.
    Another great episode, Wes and huge courage from Tommy coming on the air to recount this childhood pain.

    • Jennifer F

      Humans are far worse than animals. Using the term “animals” as a description of cruel and disgusting behavior is offensive to animals. Animals don’t treat each other the way we treat other humans and any creature we decide is unworthy of our condescension. Animals don’t organize, legislate, and carry out despicable behavior towards others because they were following orders.

      Yes, I’ve listened to the beyond horrifying Sasquatch encounters and the dogmen encounters; and yes, I will never know exactly the terror that those people experienced, but consistently, over thousands of years and throughout different locations and cultures, we’ve shown our true colors time and time again.

      Honestly, the term “inhumane” has lost its meaning. We can’t be counted on to treat fellow humans in a manner that is “merciful, kind, kindly, kindhearted, tender, compassionate, gentle, sympathetic; benevolent, benignant, charitable.”

  17. Janeda E

    Wes you mean so much to this community. Thank you for helping us all.
    Tommy, thank you sir. I’m so sorry you went thru this nightmare of a childhood. May you have a blessed future.

  18. RickyV

    Thank you Tommy for your courageous and captivating testimony! Astonishing and very special experience!! I am truly humbled by this. Thank you Wes for all you do. You are a compassionate man.

  19. F S

    Listened for a few minutes but I’m gonna turn off.
    Sorry for all the abuse that the guest suffered.
    My blood pressure has enough trouble with the chief psychopath and his zombie minions.
    Thanks Wes for helping this poor gentleman.
    God Bless.

  20. Eva B

    Thank you, Wes for helping him discuss a miracle encounter! You have a good heart. My heart goes out to the guest for all the heartache and suffering he endured as a child. That guy was a narcissistic sociopath! I would go off more because it really disturbed me. God bless him, he has children and a family of his own. That is the wonderful part in the story. Much ❤from our family to yours.

  21. Forrest W

    Yet more proof, Bigfoot is not a “creature”. We are freeking creatures. Look at gangs, MS13 or whatever the F they are. There are the same & worse out there. I know right where there is an X in the Sierras. I’m not afraid of being out there. They are better bipeds than we are.

  22. anthony t

    Thank you tommy for sharing and having the courage to share your encounter with the saschron family. wes i feel is the most compassionate host i’m sure he felt the pain that you had to endure, as well as of us members. . thank you once again brother.

  23. Susan P

    Wes… I’m going to state a different opinion here on this episode. I’m truly sorry that this man had such a horrific life experience but I’m also upset that you didn’t clean up his language. When paying for a membership I don’t appreciate female body parts being referred to in such a crass way. Also this was more about him venting on his abuse but we would all have gotten the message without his 12 year old puberty comments and his derogatory terminology. I share your blog with a group of 24 people and encourage them to sign up to your podcasts but had to go back and remove it. Now I have to apologize to them. I don’t understand why you couldn’t have vetted those comments out…

    • Wes Germer

      I am sorry you were offended. When people send me their stories I am careful not to edit the encounter they sent me other than not posting the persons name. Sorry I missed this one, I did not put it up to offend you or anyone else.

      • Hawk

        My 2 cts: Don’t edit out content to be “PG” …….. these are accounts relayed by those who experienced traumatic and often frightening experiences. Language can get “elevated” when re-living some of the more harrowing encounters. Let people be themselves – I think that is what we truly love about your show Wes.

  24. Susan P

    This Susan P. Did not mind his language or his expressions. Given the years of trauma Tommy had endured I expect no less. Even though he has “moved on” I am sure there is still a level of rage that he feels. I also would imagine it would be impossible for a young child to concentrate at school when he is in constant fear of life.
    Listening to Tommy express himself share his experiences and as dark and disturbing as they are allows me and others become witnesses to his life so we all can grow and change. So swear and cuss all you want.

  25. Mark T

    I believe every word. He had so many details and ran through the list so quickly.

    I’ve personally had my shoes sucked off my feet when I once overwatered the family garden as a kid, when I ran across the mud and got sucked in.

  26. m99

    Tommy says – “It’s an animal that not only survives but thrives.”

    I tend to agree with Tommy. Sasquatch is so much more intelligent than people. Also, I agree the government knows all about them. My theory is similar. I believe the government knows but would have to answer to the thousands of people who’ve lost loved ones, or who’ve been traumatized (they didn’t know the danger they placed themselves in).

    It rolls right back to the fact that SC is an asset to people who’ve been traumatized by these creatures. Wes gives people the opportunity to talk about their encounters, without the hum-bug. And I wonder how many have been spared because now we know these creatures exist. That being said, I don’t believe all the types are murderous killers. But, the ones that are are very sly about it.

    Once again, thank you Wes.

        • Tommy

          m99: Yes, that is my mug at about 6 yrs. my mom thought it would be cute to dress the boys (6) and girls (5) in matching pajama’s. (my parents had professional portraits taken yearly) the boys PJ’s looked like ‘prison’ uniforms, and we have pretty much called this portrait “The Prison Years’….it’s fitting, trust me…lol

          • m99

            Yes. I thought that too! (looked like ‘prison pajamas’! But, then a I thought, nah… LoL. Thanks again for posting.

  27. Bryan P

    Hi everyone – I’m Bryan and though I’m a brand new member, I’m a rather experienced SC listener via iTunes and YouTube, and this episode tore my heart out. I’ve had the hair stand up on my neck before listening to shows, but this one mopped the floor with me – incredible.
    Thanks Tommy and Wes for sharing.

    • m99

      Hi Bryan. So happy you came on board the SC members train. It’s a fast moving vehicle, so I wanted to say hey before this moves on into neverland. We all appreciate people supporting Wes’ efforts. Blessing Bryan!

  28. Nonnie C

    Wes, the reason I listen to your show, is because of you as much as the accounts from your callers. My heart goes out to Tommy and every child that goes thru those kinds of experiences. Bless his heart…..and Wes, bless your heart…..you are certainly a Gift. You have something special that helps a segment of people with a very strong need to be heard! No matter how they tell it…..your show is the best out there my friend. Thank You…..Thank you ?

    • Tommy

      Nonnie C. You can’t see this, but it’s me bowing and saying ‘thank you’! Not about me as much as about Wes, who has been there from start to finish, Thank you buddy, No, THANK YOU! WES…..

  29. Richard S

    Wes, you keep moving the bar up dude…like Tommy said, your show provides an outlet for those who have encountered Sasquatch, and other monsters without fear of criticism or reprisal; and our community of believers is all the better for it! this episode was truly on the edge of my seat riveting, my heart goes out to Tommy for living with that hell. Ironic how he found empathy in a mythical monster heh? Still anxiously awaiting your follow up episode(s) to the government cover up! i know you’re extremely busy what with producing these quality shows with outstanding guests but you know that there is an outcry from the members that want MORE of the government coverup conspiracy…its starting to look like you might be getting influenced to delay your production of such episodes…
    Nice to see Sasquatch is a hero sometimes and not always a monster. i bet this episode has caused a lot of hard core “kill them all” advocates to second guess their mental model…yeah they’re a beast, but are they the “missing link” between us and animal??

    Episode 442 Sorry I don’t believe a word this person is saying. If he is a habitual runaway at 7 that says a lot about his credibility. Its amazing on how foster parents need to be investigated before they ever receive a child. I don’t feel sorry for him since I don’t believe a word he is saying. The unfortunate thing is your credibility is damaged by not questioning a word he is saying. You can be to nice of a person and then are labeled gullible. Beside this person I do love the show.

      hmm. I won’t apologize for anything someone else did improperly, especially a County Juvenile Justice system that FAILED ME …Actually, I expected more of your type then this. It is cynical people like YOURSELF Sir, that help the Offenders/Child Abusers continue their rampant abuse of OUR CHILDREN, by denying them their God Given RIGHT to be HEARD, when they needed to cry out, and to muffle their screams with sarcasm ignorance and disbelief! And That goes for BIGFOOT encounters as well, I waited 45 years to tell this TRUTH, because of the ridicule from people like YOU.. But I want this told and I want parents to tell their kids to SPEAK UP, when something or someone is scaring, or confusing or hurting them, no matter who! friend, relative, sibling or FOSTER PARENT! I could show you my scars, but you would just shoot those down with some other crap, so I won’t waste my time.. God Bless You Sir, and Good Day to you……I SAID GOOD DAY! peace

      Say Tim, I get it, BUT, this is a place where Wes screens, talks to, Then ‘Selects’ the persons to share their encounters. It a long hard task as he’s explained several times before.

      For the most part, when one speaks this way it’s insulting to not only the witness (who has already been traumatized), but it’s insulting to the host as well. And, as I understand it, this guy was hard pressed before he agreed to come on the show. Why don’t you give people the benefit of the doubt and keep insults to yourself? Just saying.

      I don’t see Wes coming on arguing with anyone because he’s already had his share of that sort of thing. Usually members will go start a thread so the person (if a member) can hash it out in a fair manner. Another thing could be to just not listen to the broadcast. I’ve done that a couple times before. Started listening, thought it was bogus, and just turned it off.

        m99: I thought your comments were right on, and I appreciate that you brought up the fact that Wes screens witness’s thoroughly in order to select the encounter’s and guests that he deems are appropriate for this venue, and that we meet the high standards that HE strives to, and achieves on Sasq. Chron. Wes told me in one of our conversations that he generally talks to 5 to 10 witness’s for every ONE that makes it on the air! and even then, he is selective. I believe Wes has an incredible heart, and his integrity and honesty is very impressive and second to NONE, and he is also a WITNESS having had dangerous encounters with several of these creatures himself (and Woody). Also, to reiterate your comment, I did NOT want to come on the show 2 years ago! and I still did NOT want to come on the show now. But He (Wes) assured me it was an important encounter and even though it included the front story of ‘some’ of the trauma and abuse that I encountered while on that farm. He explained to me in a respectful way, that it was important to explain to the ‘audience’ the probability that the creature’s unheard of behavior and actions could have been because of it witnessing my abuse on the farm. And then again maybe the two have nothing to do with each other…Who knows? It is left to the listener to consider and rationalize the possibilities of these incredible creatures. I still have way more questions then answers.
        oh, and ‘Tim’s comments about how “you are full of crap. You want me to believe you where drug behind a car for 2 miles, really.” #1, I did NOT say he drug me for two miles, of course I ran behind until I fell or I got too tired, or we reached the Farm, it was different each time, and I completely understand Tim disbelieving my story, it sounds absolutely ridiculous! (but then again, most, if not all of us thought it was ‘absolutely ridiculous’ to think we could put a Man on the MOON! Or that Bigfoot were REAL! HAHA! I am going to start a ‘thread’ so that members can talk directly with me or others about their concerns or make whatever comments they feel they need to make. I’ll call it “Sasquatch Saves Child” Doing this show with Wes has left me quite full of anxiety and it has NOT been ‘Fun’..Take care m99, Peace to you and yours…Tommy

        • m99

          Yeah, but I wouldn’t worry about what he said. Don’t you see? We all know Wes screens and if he’s behind a witness, we’re also there. I am very glad you have this venue and very glad Wes and you have become friends. I’m also happy you’re doing the forum thing. I usually read it everyday. You will be amazed at the knowledge acquired by reading the forum. Not that long ago the moderators said you can discuss whatever you want in the forum, not just BF related. And if someone wants to challenge your account, that’s a great place for it to happen. The excellent moderators won’t stand for a lot of mess. And, I’ve since read your posts. Good for you man. So vent away, share away, be yourself. I bet it’s gonna make a huge difference for you. Blessings Tommy! _m

    I don’t want to turn this into a rant about child abuse, so out of respect for SC, timmy, why don’t you just email me and we’ll finish this conversation off SC, like gentleman, well, I will at least. I’ve watched people like you come and go all my life, mostly GO!..email: signman1122@yahoo.com

  32. Tim N

    Im sorry if my words offended you but you are full of crap. You want me to believe you where drug behind a car for 2 miles, really. Im not buying it.

    • Tommy

      God bless you Tim. Consider it a good thing that you cannot imagine such horrors. Have a Wonderful day! Please E-mail me if you feel a need to comment or discuss it further.. Peace..

    Tommy, thank you so much for sharing everything you went through. I listened with intent and tears and leaps of joy knowing such a foul nightmare chapter of your life ended. Thank God for Sasquatch in that moment and good Samaritans like your friend’s mother. I couldn’t help but think of another encounter I listened to – and I can’t remember the episode but Wes could pin point it I’m sure – of another witness who had heard crying in the woods. And when he investigated what it was he came across a “baby” Squatch who had his leg stuck in the Y of a tree. His distress brought his supposed mom and sister by and that scared off the witness after the female roared in his face but it makes you wonder… maybe this female was rushing toward you with the same urgency because cries and distress will turn their maternal instincts on??? It’s so very interesting hearing of this behavior as many encounters don’t show a “softer” side of Bigfoot. I laughed at the description of the smell… Tommy that was the best way anyone has described it to me so far and I hope I never get a whiff! God Bless and thank you again Wes for this safe space… for ALL encounters.

    Great show very intelligent guest, I’m so happy Tom found a happy path in life and gives back to the human race children that I’m sure will also contribute to hopefully a better world in the future because it’s not much of a world right now! It takes something we hunt to save one of our children when a whole town knew of the abuse these children suffered, unbelievable, humanity it makes me despair ?
    Thank you Wes .?

  35. Christopher S

    I I literally shed tears with this man.. thank God I made it through it and came out Paramore Ain’t no I would never wish that kind of treatment on anyone. Scumbag like that got shot kick into a ditch and buried alive.. thanks for sharing dude

  36. Fran S

    Thank you for being brave and sharing your story. The Sasquatch was Minnesota NICE! Only people from Minnesota understand that. Ha! I am happy that you have found peace. God Bless you for forgiving and moving on. It takes a strong God loving soul to endure what you have. Love your encounter. Angel in the woods or swamp. You should write a book. Thanks again and Wes for listening to you and helping.

    Hi Duke! Hi Tim from Minnesota! I do not understand how people can live in such harsh weather. But, it’s certainly beutiful there, huh?

  38. Tim N

    Fran S, I’m pleased to make your acquaintance. when I said I lived close to White Bear lake I had to think no I don’t I live in Brooklyn Park by the river so that is about 15 miles away. I did get a good laugh out of DUKEs response. m99 it is bitterly cold at times. I believe about 25 years ago it was 58 bellow zero. I think prince said it best its just cold enough to keep the bad people out.

  39. Margaret H

    Thank you so much for sharing your story. It took a lot of courage and I applaud you. It appears you have overcome a lot of challenges. God Bess you! Bishop Margaret

  40. Tracy R. B

    I am so sorry that you suffered so much torture and abuse by fellow humans and your own brother.
    As a child who had not been shown love I understand why you weren’t able to tell on your abusers and why you ran.
    Thank you for telling your story on Sasquatch Chronicles, it WILL HELP .
    I hope you have found the true meaning of love and family.
    Wes, thank you for being persistent with Tommy to tell of his encounter. The Sasquatch was showing compassion for another of God’s creatures, More than humans had shown Tommy.
