Submitted by witness on Friday, June 17, 2005.
Night time sightings outside Duncan; Other incidents mentioned

YEAR: 2005

SEASON: Summer


DATE: 17

PROVINCE: British Columbia


LOCATION DETAILS: Cowichan Valley area


NEAREST ROAD: highway 18

OBSERVED: While camping in the Cowichan Valley we heard an animal circle us, then saw it briefly but clearly in the light of our fire. It ran off when a loud dirtbike approached.

A friend in the same area says he saw a sasquatch dart across the road and over a fence while he was driving. He said it used a tree to launch its self into the bush. The tree was uprooted and is still there.

Another person near here says his girlfriend saw one while the two were sleeping in his car in the woods. His girlfriend noticed something looking in the window, then watched it walk around the truck and then leave.

There have been some direct vocalizations between us and these animals. This has occured twice now, in the same location. It returned the following calls: whistles, whoops, grunts, clicks. It mimicked everything.

The next time we went to the area we heard a large branch hitting a tree, but in sequence, 2-3 taps, with about a 5 second gap, for about 30 seconds. We made whooping calls but it only returned with a couple taps, then we heard it leave.

One day were down by a river having a beer, taking a break from 4x4ing, when I heard what sounding like a hammer driving a nail. This sounds exactly like the knocks on this site in the audio link. It was sequenced and we were the only people out in the area. It occured 3 times in a half hour span, very loud and distinctive.

One night we heard a whooping call 3 times. It was faint, but distinctive.

We think there may be many other sightings in the Cowichan Valley area that no one has reported.

TIME AND CONDITIONS: most incounters are at night a few such as the knocks were in the day

ENVIRONMENT: River, Swamp, thick forest, bush, tree lines ect.

The Cowichan Valley is on the southern end of Vancouver Island.
