(Show Printer-friendly Version)
COUNTY: Lewis County
LOCATION DETAILS: sounded like it was comming from olequa creek near the park
NEAREST TOWN: Winlock
NEAREST ROAD: Rhoades St
OBSERVED: My wife and I let the dogs out and hung outside watching them. we noticed another dog south of us barking. Our dogs went to the north side of the fenced yard and looked out of the fence for a while, I grabbed them and brought them in the house. I heard a noise north of the house prob. near the creek. I ask my wife if the noise was a coyote since she know them better than I do, she said, "no, hell no I have never heard that before" after we got inside I had her listen to a few audio clips, cougars,wolves, and then bigfoot clips on the site (1973,1978) she said that those clips sounded identical.
After I told her what clips were played she freaked out and said, "Shut it off! Doesn't it give you chills." She is still freaked out when I play it.....I don't know what it could be but would like to know if it was a bigfoot.
ALSO NOTICED: I want to walk the creek to see if there is anything down there in the area
OTHER WITNESSES: Just one other, my wife. which was outside with me watching the dogs.
OTHER STORIES: never
TIME AND CONDITIONS: 1:15-1:20 A.M.
ENVIRONMENT: We where right inside city limits north of town. The sound was coming from the direction of the creek with woods between both locations.
Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Scott Taylor:
I contacted the witness via e-mail and then later by phone. The witness described the vocalizations as being almost the same as the Puyallup Whoop Howls. Based on the phone conversation, I was able to do a field investigation of the area where the witness described hearing the vocals come from. He said that it was coming from the park north of town about a half mile from his home.
The park is at a place where three creek tributaries meet, and is very heavily wooded. By viewing the area in person and via satellite photos, I surmised that the area would be ideal for a creature to use to travel from east to west through the more settled area without being detected.
