Campers hear loud scream in National Forest

YEAR: 1996

SEASON: Summer

MONTH: August

DATE: 24

STATE: Washington

COUNTY: Pend Oreille County

LOCATION DETAILS: The name of the county was Pend O'reille( pronounced "pond o'ray") and the closest town was Ione (pronounced "eye-own") about 10 miles by road or 5 miles by air.


NEAREST ROAD: State Rd. #20 off Rocky Creek Rd

OBSERVED: My son and I heard a howl or scream in the deep woods of the Colville National Forest in N.W. Washinton @ 1:00 A.M. The sound was more like the recording found by the Westen Bigfoot Society on the net. Actually, it was exactly like that one. It sent shivers down your back. We were a measured 6 miles N. of state rd. #20 on Rocky Creek Rd. The sound came from approx. .5 to 1 mi. northwest of our campsite. We had noticed for the past couple of hours prior to this that the forest was absolutly quiet. No noise at all.

Please contact me if you want any other info.

OTHER WITNESSES: Son and father were camping.
