Bigfoot likes to vacation by lake.
By Chuck Wheeler
Lancaster,Ca. Daily Ledger Gazette
Many things are coming out about Bigfoot. Now we learn he is a gourmet, he likes birds, not pheasants, but desert ravens, or big black crows. Recently a hang-glider enthusiast who likes to soar through the air on a little bit of nothing saw a bigfoot sitting in the middle of a road eating a raven. But, he ran off into an open field out there near 150th St. East, and not once did he stop eating his raven. He just kept trotting along on both legs with the raven clutched in his hands, or paws. Next he was recently seen by an eleven year- old boy, and his four year- old sister along Lake Los Angeles where it is learned that he likes to tumble down hills. Bret Baylor, son of John Baylor, and his sister Stephanie, all of Palmdale, grabbed his sister and carried her almost all the way home from the Lake after he saw the big, brown ball rolling down the hill, which was described as a "great big monkey." Believed to be bigfoot. Floyd Smith CBO vice president says the latest prints were found along Lake Los Angeles.
1973 Antelope Valley Bigfoot Sightings
You might find the following old newspaper articles of some interest. They pertain to Bigfoot sightings in our Antelope Valley during the early 70's. The paper that the articles came from is now defunct, and I believe that most of the people named are long gone. I'm taking the articles off of some very poor micro-fish film, on a lousy video and copy machine at our local library.
My family and I lived in Lancaster at the time that these articles were written. Some of the articles could be plausible, but others?
In the following newspaper articles, which were written by the papers staff writer, Chuck Wheeler, who worked for the Daily Ledger Gazette during this era. I'm only going to try and give you the pertinent sighting information, because there is a lot of extraneous fluff thatís intertwined in the articles.
