Was It a Sasquatch?
Niagara Falls Review
Geraldton, Ont. (CP) - Randy Corcoran says he will never return to a nearby bush where he recently saw a creature he believes was a sasquatch.
Corcoran, 18, said Friday that he was hiking alone in the woods two weeks ago when he saw an animal about 2.2-meters tall, covered with long, reddish-brown hair.
After walking nearly a kilometer along the trail, he heard a noise in the bush and took cover behind a rock, he said in an interview in this community 270 kilometers west of Thunder Bay.
"At first I thought it was a bear or a moose making all that noise, so I hid," he said. "And when I saw it I sure didn't want it to see me."
Corcoran said the human-like animal, which he said had a long face, crossed the trail about 140 meters from him.
"I stayed behind that rock an hour after it had gone, shaking all the time."
"It doesn't matter what people say, I don't care. I saw it. I don't know if it was a Sasquatch or what, but I saw it."
