Sasquatch sighting report, August 14, 2003:
A buddy and me 3 weeks ago were hiking up into Spindle
Canyon (located above Becker Creek at the northerly end of the Pitt Lake),
looking for Slumach’s lost gold mine. It was starting to get dark so we
decided to make camp for the night … just as we were both starting to fall
asleep we heard the most blood curdling scream then a bunch of low garbled
noises. We shit, turned on every light we had with us and scoured the bush
around us. We could smell this very rotten odor (rotten eggs & excrement?).
Anyway, we never went back to sleep that night, and at daybreak we proceeded
to hike further up in to the canyon. We couldn’t believe our eyes, there it
was crouched over a pond in the creek catching minnows. It never saw us.
Suddenly it turned around and looked at us, stood up and bolted into the
bush. I must say we went back down the way we came up … I’ll never go back
into that area again. This is a true story and if you wish you can contact
me by cell phone at xxx-xxxx .
Note: In a follow-up phone conversation, B. Hay went on to explain
that he has been into this area in the past searching for gold and has found
16-17 inch Sasquatch tracks himself, and on one other occasion had reports
from a friend that had been in the same area prospecting and had seen large
barefoot man-like tracks in the snow leading away from the wreckage of a
helicopter high in Spindle Canyon.
B. Hay estimated the height of the Sasquatch he encountered at somewhere
between 7 and 8 feet.
