Tonight’s Show: The Pacific NW Sasquatch

A listener writes “A friend just told me about your podcast so I listened to a few episodes and read about your story. I thought I’d reach out about our encounters because we somehow got “lucky” and had 2 face to face encounters within a 2 year span in a pretty unexpected area in Eastside Olympia and then in rural Yelm.

At the time, I found BFRO and had Scott Taylor come out to both sites to corroborate our sightings & we just recently added them to the BFRO site.

Here's the first sighting Jan 2017:

To begin, I’ll say that my husband at the time of our first sighting (we’re divorced but still in touch) was an active duty Army Sniper at Fort Lewis (he is now an honorably discharged Veteran living in Oregon). He’s been deployed to Afghanistan and Thailand & in combat and is tactically trained as well as being an avid hunter since a young age, with an actual photographic memory, so he’s very sharp. He also understands the advantage of ghillie suits to hide from “the enemy” – and if you think about Sasquatch’s brown fur and how they often blend well, it’s similar.

However he did NOT believe in Sasquatch at all. We were living at a dead end near Bigelow Lake (total marshy dense foliage lake) in East Olympia in January 2017 and Anthony was out in our front driveway working on his engine with a headlamp at about midnight. He heard super heavy stomping coming from the lower marshy area from the back of our house towards the front where we had an apple tree. He thought it was an Elk by the weight maybe, but it didn’t sound like an Elk walking. Then he looked at our apple tree with the headlamp and was literally face to fact with a HUGE bigfoot. It’s eyes glowed yellow back at him and he took a knee but pulled out his Glock. It turned and stomped into the woods that led to Mission Creek Nature Park (Not preserve, but BFRO said there were sightings at the Mission Creek Nature Preserve, which is somewhat nearby).

We looked for footprints and couldn’t find any because it walked through a very wet soggy marsh area. He took about 2 days to tell me I believe. Then I contacted BFRO and Scott Taylor came out.

One note: I will say one odd thing about this encounter is the night before there were 3 of us talking in our driveway (we had military friends over on and off daily) and above our house in the tree-line was a glowing orb shape thing. My husband flew drones for the military and said he didn’t think it was a drone – even a silent one. It was very bright and non-moving. Then it just disappeared. I didn’t think much of it, but some folks say they see glowing lights close to Bigfoot encounters. My husband did not talk about it with anyone. Of course I did tell some people, but I found that people really do think you’re crazy…they don’t get excited with you at all! Even my friends who believe in UFO’s. So I stopped saying anything.

Second sighting Oct 2019:

It was 2019 and we’d since moved to a rural 5 acre rental in Yelm off Vail Rd. Our property faced our neighbor’s horse pasture and we could see into it including the barn that was there. One night in Oct. my husband was smoking on our front porch at about 1am and saw something trigger the motion light in the pasture. That property was vacant because it was for sale at the time, so there were no horses or people there. He said it illuminated a tall but skinnier (than the one before) sasquatch. Once the light came on it started walking quickly and over the fence (he said as easy as walking over a baby-gate). This time he came and woke me up & is NEVER flustered but he was flustered..nothing phases him, even combat he’s calm.

Anyways, we went out on the front porch again. It’s super quiet out there & we could hear something big breathing loudly in the tree line. No knocking or other noises. Then it stopped. So the next morning I scheduled an appt to see the house since I’m a licensed Realtor & we went to scope the muddy pasture out for prints. Sure enough, there were prints where we thought they’d be! I have a video but it’s not that great. You had to have been there. Us seeing them was enough for us. But we did call Scott again to come look & he saw some other signs. It was amazing we had 2 actual visual encounters.”

    I think the Sasquatch encounters that involve food are interesting. Idk with certainty exactly what these beings are, where they come from, where they go or even if they truly need to eat to survive as it would have such a devastating effect on the environment in the amount of calories it would take to feed a small group of them.

    I also wonder because a few of my encounters with them made it clear that they have abilities that humans don’t, and an intellect about the natural world that makes it almost impossible for us to corner one or study it with video.

    Whether they actually need to harvest food or not is debatable, but if not they are very good at replicating the impact and disruption on nature as humans do.

    Our equipment in the forest leaves large tracks, the chainsaw puts nature on edge with its long moaning howl as it removes trees needed for survival, our mere presence in the wilderness must give nature itself an overwhelming sense of fear, and our vehicles and clothing with its unfamiliar smells probably strike an uneasy feeling as well… No to mention the whoops and gibberish we utter in the forest and the strange lights we bring with us.

    At some point you may start making these types of connections and ask yourself if the Sasquatch are their own “people” or is it a message about us and our impact on the environment?

    Are they really eating out of dumpsters, garbage cans, stealing from gardens or waiting for a tribute of food… Or is it a dose of reality we choose to ignore in our own society?

    In our society many things go unnoticed. As a hunter/fisherman I have learned to appreciate and be aware and thankful for my harvests and food and how the Creator made that possible… But there seems to be a disconnect in this appreciation at the drive up window when there shouldn’t be. Your burger didn’t just magically appear from the burger fairy, something had to give its life for that.

    Even if you don’t eat meat, it doesn’t matter what diet you choose, something had to die for that and it impacted the environment in some way, and for everything for your additional day of life and everything good in it you should be grateful and thank the Creator.

    The next time you go to McMana pay attention and look at that sign. Is that logo simply the golden gateway to your quick full belly with billions and billions simply served? Or is it a broken halo emerging from a cornerstone or bucket of blood with billions and billions of severed chances to thank God for your meal-O-happiness?

    I’m not saying don’t eat fast food, I’m not saying don’t stop eating whatever you want to eat… Just be thankful for everything, even if it’s a cheap greasy burger. Payment doesn’t end with an exchange at the window from food for currency, payment only truly ends with a thank you and appreciation of where your food came from and what it took to get in your hand.

    If Sasquatch is truly an intelligent being, even IT is likely aware of that. 🌞🙏🏼
