YEAR: 1991

SEASON: Summer

MONTH: August

STATE: California

COUNTY: Shasta County

NEAREST TOWN: Shingletown

NEAREST ROAD: Highway 44

OBSERVED: Honeymoon trip August 1991. Stopped at roadside rest between Redding, Ca. and Mt. Lassen. Wife felt ill in middle of night, walked her to restroom to throw up. While wife was in restroom I heard local dogs going crazy barking, etc. This barking was silenced by a yell that I've only heard on documentaries about bigfoot, but it is totally different live. After this yell, there was nothing but silence and my poor wife getting sick. I went back to the van and drove back topick up my wife. I told her I was just getting it warm for her, but she seemed to sense my aggitation. I convinced her nothing was wrong and we went back to sleep. I kept it to myself until morning. When I told her she didn't believe me. I saw nothing and smeld nothing, but I have never heard so much noise silenced so quickly.

TIME AND CONDITIONS: nice clear night

Follow-up investigation report:

I talked with the witness by phone and the following details can be added to the report:
--the exact location of the rest stop is unknown, but it was the last road stop until Mt. Lassen, and in the morning, they only traveled 1.5 hours before reaching Lassen; and
--estimated 12 or more dogs were barking at the time.
