Sasquatch Conspiracy


An Op/Ed by Scott Harper


As most of you probably know, I grew up in Ohio. While there, I had three sightings of a Sasquatch, along with other interactions/encounters with them. So, Sasquatch has long been an interest of mine. I've spent a lot of time reading books on the subject, as well as watching televised documentaries, films, YouTube videos of sightings reports, etc. I've also talked to a lot of people regarding the subject of Sasquatch. My most recently published book—which was co-authored with my wonderful wife Desirée Lee—is titled "Hidden Tribe". It deals with the topic of Sasquatch, too. On a side note, find "Hidden Tribe" at this URL if you're interested in reading it: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1939378060. I'm also working on a series of historical articles for the Bigtruth blog (https://bigtruthblog.blogspot.com)  that focus on State by State encounters with Sasquatch prior to the Patterson/Gimlin footage that was shot in 1967.

Given my own personal experiences, and the sheer amount of time I've spent learning more about the topic, I feel that I am fairly knowledgeable about Sasquatch. Over time, and many reports of sightings, and encounters others have had with them, too, I've also noticed a disturbing pattern. I don't want to come off sounding like a conspiracy theory nut, but I say with all honesty, and seriousness that I firmly believe that there is a cover-up going on where Sasquatch is concerned. I believe that the United States government, military, logging industry, and probably the oil industry as well given the Alaskan pipeline, all know, and accept that Sasquatch is a real, living species. What do they do with this knowledge? Cover it up. Why? Money.

Remember the spotted owl fiasco from several years ago? Remember how it affected the logging industry? Imagine what will happen when Sasquatch is finally, publicly, acknowledged to be real? They'll almost certainly be considered an endangered species. Where do most Sasquatch seem to live? In the forest. Where are most of the sightings recorded? In the Pacific Northwest. Logging is big, big business here. Just imagine what having an endangered species such as the Sasquatch acknowledged as living in the forests where logging is so huge would do to that industry. The logging industry would be basically shut down—at least for a while. That will have a devastating effect on all industries that use wood. Everything from construction, to furniture manufacturing, to the paper industry. Which means the entire publishing industry would have to make sweeping changes, too. Along with that would come change to the transport, and delivery services that move the cut-down trees, construction materials, paper, published books, furniture, etc. The Alaskan oil pipeline would, I'm sure, be effected by the acceptance of Sasquatch as a living species, too. Everything is connected. Everything would be effected.

Looking closer at the impact to the construction industry, not having wood to frame buildings, or build walls, alternatives would need to be found. One very good one would be hempcrete. This is an excellent building material. It mixes hemp with lime, or sand, to form blocks. Hempcrete is naturally insulting, fire retardant, if not flat-out fire proof, and doesn't rot, or attract insects like wood does. It would be a logical alternative to wood for construction. However, turning to hempcrete would open the door to other hemp products, such as paper, fuel, health food, medication, clothing, and many other industries for which it is currently illegal. Why is it illegal? Because it would do to these industries about what publicly accepting Sasquatch as a species would do to the logging industry. It's in the best financial interest of the people involved with those industries that hemp remain illegal. Hemp grows faster than trees. It takes less water. It gives more product yield per acre. No one financially invested in any industry it would affect wants it to be legalized. Again, everything is connected. Everything would be effected.

Those changes would, I'm sure, result in a lot of people losing their jobs. Business people who have millions of dollars invested in these industries would be hit hard right in the wallets. They'd likely lose millions, if not billions, of dollars due to shut-downs, and changes that would need to be made. Of course, they don't want that to happen. They don't want to suffer the loss of that money, or the power, and prestige that come with it. These people know that Sasquatch are real. Given encounters I've heard over the years, it seems that logging trucks hit, and kill Sasquatch sometimes as they're moving along dark forested roads. Most Sasquatch sightings actually occur when one of the creatures cross the road in front of a vehicle, by the way. Whether these are young, inexperienced Sasquatch making a mistake, underestimating how fast the trucks are moving, or what, I don't know. But it seems that, sometimes, Sasquatch are struck down by logging trucks. Going on details on this topic I've come across in reports over the years, what happens after accidents like these are that the driver involved is told not to speak of what happened to anyone if he values his job. The body of the Sasquatch is then moved somewhere else, or even burned on the spot to get rid of it. The powers that be in the United States government, and these industries do not want a Sasquatch body to fall into the hands of someone who can use it to prove beyond doubt to the public at large that Sasquatch are real.

Given the financial stakes for the people in charge, they'll go to great lengths to make sure that Sasquatch remains unaccepted as a living species. They throw out misinformation. They try to suppress sightings, and other information on the topic where, and when they can. Employees are told not to talk about the subject, or else lose their jobs. Most reports that point to a cover-up conspiracy on this matter are made many years after the encounter took place because the person making it waited until they retired before coming forward. This way they don't run the risk of losing their job by doing so.

The lengths that those in charge will go to in order to keep Sasquatch relegated to the realm of folklore go well beyond threats of job loss, or covering up a road accident, though. According to a couple of reports I've read over the years, there have been times when military units have been deployed with orders to kill every Sasquatch they can find in a given area. It seems to me that the powers that be in the United States government, and big business—and those two are often intertwined—would rather see Sasquatch eradicated as a species, than acknowledge it. They would rather commit genocide than lose the money, and power, that having Sasquatch accepted as a real, living species would ultimately cause.

That angers me greatly. I want the conspiracy to end. I want Sasquatch publicly accepted as a real, living, endangered species. Yes, when this finally happens it's going to cause a huge upheaval in a lot of ways, in a lot of areas. A lot will change. I think, though, that when things settle back down, the changes that will have been made will be for the better. I may be wrong; I try to be optimistic. Still, regardless of what ultimately happens, I want Sasquatch acknowledged as a real species. Whether they are non-human animals, or some ancestor of ours, I don't know. Personally, I think they're closer to apes than humans. Regardless, though, I want them publicly accepted as a species. I've seen them. I've had encounters with them where I didn't see the creature, but I know it was there. I know for a fact that these creatures are real. It's way past time for them to be accepted as such by the scientific community, the United States government, the general public, and everyone else. It's past time for the conspiracy, lies, and cover-ups to end.

Maine - Harper's History Vol.1 #20




by Scott Harper

  Maine isn't a huge state, but it boasts a lot of forested area. These woodlands seem to be home to a population of Sasquatch, given the fairly steady flow of recent sightings coming from Maine. However, the state's Sasquatch reports aren't all from modern times. There has been Sasquatch activity in the state for quite a while. According to Native Americans, tribes of the creatures we now know as Sasquatch have long lived in the area. Their stories, and accounts of them reach back well before Maine joined the Union in 1820.



  Sometime in the early 1800's a trapper witnessed a tall, hairy being approach his camp. The creature simply turned, and walked away. What was presumed to be the same Sasquatch was spotted standing on a rock in a lake the following morning. These sightings happened near Mt. Katahdin.

  In Waldoboro Maine in 1855, a man was chopping wood when he heard screams coming from behind his house. Upon investigating, he spotted a short, hair-covered creature. A juvenile Sasquatch?



  A book titled "Camping Out" was published in 1873. It chronicles six encounters of creatures known at the time as "Injun Devils". There is also a report in the text concerning the death of a trapper. The man had been beaten against a tree, and torn apart. Many people dismissed the death as the result of a mountain lion attack. Mountain lions don't slam their victims against a tree repeatedly to dispatch them, though. Such an activity has been attributed to Sasquatch more than once, however.

  In 1886, a newspaper called the "Waterville Sentinel" reported on the death of a camper. The dead man had been found by two companions. As a 10-foot-tall "wild man" had been spotted in the area, it was immediately named as the suspect. A group of men set out, armed, to hunt for the creature. Reports state that the group found, and killed, the creature, but do not say what became of the body.



  1946 brought a report from four men who were on Bigelow Mountain. They sat down for lunch, and spotted what they later claimed was a 10-foot-tall being covered in black hair walking toward them. The figure looked to be carrying a large rock. The men wasted no time in leaving the area. Three years later, in the same area, in 1949, a 7-foot-tall Sasquatch was spotted alongside a roadway by a passing driver.

  All in all, the state of Maine has a wealth of Sasquatch sightings—some of which predate the Patterson/Gimlin footage from 1967, further proving that these beings didn't just suddenly pop into existence with that film, as some people seem to think.



  The sightings continue right up to present day as well. They even include a few rare white Sasquatch reports. Canada boasts a large number of Sasquatch sightings. Maine adjoins two Canadian provinces. Sasquatch aren't affected by man-made borders. It's probable that the Sasquatch populations from Quebec, and New Brunswick wander back and forth into, and out of Maine. Odds are that this wandering has been going on for a very long time, and will continue to do so. Such a large area, with wooded terrain friendly to Sasquatch, goes a long way to explain why there have been so many sightings of these beings in the state of Maine for such a long time.

Louisiana - Harper's History Vol.1 #19






by Scott Harper

 When most people think of Sasquatch sightings in the state of Louisiana, the first thing to come to mind is the Honey Island Swamp Monster. Sightings of this being began in 1963—four years before the famous Patterson/Gimlim footage from the Pacific Northwest was recorded. Film footage of the Honey Island Swamp Monster was recorded by a wildlife photographer during the first reported sighting of the creature. Yet is wasn't discovered until the death of the photographer, Harlan Ford, in 1980. Ford had, apparently, squirreled the film away, rather than going public with it.





 Reports of the Honey Island Swamp Monster claim that the creature is around 7-feet-tall, gives off a stench akin to rotting garbage, and leaves footprints with three webbed toes. The odd number of toes is something that has come up in earlier articles in this series, too. This is not uncommon in the southern areas of the United States. Some researchers think that the unusual number of toes are due to inbreeding of isolated populations of Sasquatch. Others voice the viewpoint that we could be dealing with an entirely separate species of beings—one with fewer than five toes per foot.

 Regardless, the Honey Island Swamp Monster isn't the only reported Sasquatch, or Sasquatch-type creature, in the state of Louisiana.





 In 1884, railroad workers near Vicksburg, Louisiana claimed to have been attacked by a group of Sasquatch—which the workers called "hairy wild men". The men had been working at clearing trees. They were preparing to remove the cut trees from the area, when rocks began to pelt them. Accompanying the flying rocks were a series of growls, and howling. Most of the men fled. Several of them remained, flinging rocks back in the direction from which they had come. A group of three to five Sasquatch—reports varied on the exact number—rushed into view, howling, and throwing more rocks at the men. The remaining men ran away. No report was found of how long it took them to return to work.


 In 1888, a female Sasquatch was spotted multiple times, including being seen in the act of killing a pig. She fled, leaving a trail of footprints, and pig blood. Apparently, no one followed the clear trail in an attempt to track her further. These sightings took place near Catahoula, Louisiana.





 Autumn of 1925 found a pair of men near Bordelonville, Louisiana badly frightened during the early morning hours one day as they were going out duck hunting. Light from their kerosene lantern reflected off of two large, red glowing eyes. As the creature moved closer to them—drawn, the men thought, by the illumination of their lantern—they turned , and ran. "Large, glowing, red eyes" are commonly reported in conjunction with Sasquatch sightings.


 A woman living in a remote swampy area of Louisiana claimed to have found an infant Sasquatch in 1964. Her claim is that the creature weighed 20 pounds, and was hairless at that time. According to her story, she took the small being in, and raising it, assuming that its parents were either dead, or had abandoned it. She claims to have released the creature back into the wild several times, but says that it always came back to her. This went on, according to the woman, until age, and health forced her to move into a more populous area. She refused to give exact details, saying that she wanted to protect the Sasquatch. She doesn't think the one she raised is the only one living in that area, either. According to her claims, the creature she raised began bringing "a friend" with it once it had grown.





 Sightings continue in Louisiana to the present day. There are quite a few, in fact; it seems to be an active state. So much so that there is even a wildlife removal company claiming to offer a "Sasquatch removal and prevention service". Their website doesn't give any claim as to the effectiveness of their efforts on that front. I think I'd take that particular area of their "expertise" with a grain—or more!—of salt.

Kentucky - Harper's History Vol.1 #18






by Scott Harper


  The state of Kentucky sits just south of Ohio, where I grew up. Based on personal experience, I know Ohio has Sasquatch activity. So, it's no surprise that Kentucky has a history of it, too.

  Several massive skeletons were found in a Native American burial mound in 1858 in Adair, Kentucky. According to the report, it is unknown what became of them after they were dug up.





  There is a report on file from 1878 in which a 6-and-a-half-foot-tall Sasquatch was captured. According to the report, the creature was put on display in Louisville. The report makes no mention of what became of the Sasquatch.

  Frontiersman Daniel Boone claimed to have shot, and killed a Sasquatch—Boone called the creature a "Yahoo"—in a cave in 1882. According to Boone, the creature was 10-feet-tall.

  In Oldham County, in August of 1884, there were several sightings of a "Wild Man" in the woodlands of the area.







  May of 1894 brought in a report of a group of men tracking a "Wild Man" to a cave after the creature had raided farms in the area. The report ends there, not relating what happened after the men reached the cave. This supposedly happened in the Deep Creek area.

  Summer of 1902 brought in a report from two men who were walking late one night, and encountered an "Ape Man". One of the men reportedly shot the creature, causing it to flee. This happened in the area of the state now known as "Land Between the Lakes".






  Sometime in the 1920's a giant humanoid skeleton was unearthed during the building of a bridge in Beals, Kentucky. The skeleton was measured; it was 12-feet-tall. The bones went into a private collection. Its whereabouts are presently unknown.

  Two children, in the summer of 1950, spotted a Sasquatch watching them as they played near a cave in the mountains. A few seconds after the children saw the creature, it retreated deeper into the woods.

  A woman in Johnson County spotted a 9-foot-tall Sasquatch with copper-colored hair peeking into a house through a window in 1951.





  In October of 1953, a group of children reported seeing a Sasquatch using two pieces of wood to dig in the dirt. If this account is true, it's one of the very few occurrences of Sasquatch tool use that I've ever run across—aside from wood knocking, rock clacking, etc. of course.

  Three children spotted a Sasquatch digging in mud with its bare hands in the Cumberland Gap in 1954. The children were playing, while their parents listened to the radio nearby. Upon spotting the creature, the children froze. When the Sasquatch saw the children, it flung a handful of mud at them. The children turned, and fled, retreating to their parents.

  Kentucky continues to be the location of many more Sasquatch sightings and encounters to this day. It seems that the state has a good population of the creatures living there. If the past is any indication, we can probably expect a steady flow of new sightings coming from Kentucky, as well.

Kansas - Harper's History Vol.1 #17




by Scott Harper

  A look at Kansas shows us a long history of Sasquatch presence. That isn't surprising. The state sits smack in the middle of the United States—surrounded by states that also have a prolonged history of sightings reports.


  Kansas also has long held a Native American presence. Native Americans all over the country have lengthy traditions of stories, and accounts of Sasquatch. Every tribe has  names for them. Each tribe readily acknowledges their presence as a reality, although they don't often speak of such matters with people outside their own tribes.



  In Crawford County, Kansas, in 1869, there were multiple sightings of an ugly, "human-like" creature that broke several fences.
 
  Lafayette, Kansas, in 1883, saw the report from a farmer's wife of a female creature, covered in dark hair. The Sasquatch was seen eating from a sassafras bush. The woman fainted upon seeing the creature. The farmer led a search party after the Sasquatch, trying to find it again. According to reports, they caught sight of it a few times, but were unable to capture it.


  1886 saw the report of a family of four Sasquatch being captured. According to the report, the family consisted of an adult male, an adult female, a teenage girl, and a baby. All were dark-skinned, and covered with coarse, dark hair. No report was found as to what became of them after capture.



  In Olathe, Kansas, in 1893, several reports were made of a 7-foot-tall creature, which was covered in long, brown hair, having been spotted in the woods in the area. One farmer reported having had two cows, and a calf killed. He attributed the livestock deaths to the creature.


  A woman on the Pottawatomie Indian Reserve spotted a "wild man" in 1959. The creature ran into the woods from the field it had been spotted in upon realizing it had been noticed.


  In 1960, a driver in Jackson County spotted a Sasquatch near the road. The sighting startled the man so badly that he drove off the road, and into someone's lawn to escape the creature.



  1964 brought in a report of a bread truck driver who spotted a very hairy, 5-foot-tall being near railroad tracks. When the man stopped his truck for a better look at the creature, the thing ran off into the weeds. At some point later—reports are unclear as to just how much time passed—a farmer reported the death of sixteen hogs. Apparently, whatever had killed the hogs had bitten them in the necks to kill them. The farmer blamed the creature spotted by the bread truck driver for the deaths of his hogs. These events took place in Crawford County.


  It's readily apparent that Sasquatch have been in the area of land that we now know as the state of Kansas for a long while. Further evidence that, contrary to what some people believe, the first Sasquatch sighting was not the Patterson/Gimlin footage, which was shot in 1967. These beings didn't just come out of nowhere; they have been here for a long, long time.

California Woman Brings Lawsuit To Recognize Sasquatch

Still from a video taken Jan. 15th 2018 by Todd Standing near Claudia Ackley's Sighting location. 




By Ed Brown



Are There Sasquatch in Southern California?


     According to Claudia Ackley, a woman in San Bernardino County, Yes!  In fact, she believes it so much that on January 18th, 2018 she filed a lawsuit against the state of California’s Department of Fish and Wildlife.  Her claims are that The Department of Fish and Wildlife are derelict in their duty because they fail to investigate Sasquatch reports.  In fact, according to one report, they do not even keep statistics regarding reports.
   
    In late March of 2017, Claudia along with her two daughters were hiking along a public trail in Lake Arrowhead California, when they noticed something in a tree watching them… and one of her daughters had her cell phone out and was recording.  There is absolutely no doubt that something was in the tree, however, even though there was no snout, ears on the side of the head, and a heavy eye brow…the Department of Fish and Wildlife said, “You saw a bear” … and this was ascertained without an investigation of any kind. 




Claudia Ackley Shared Her Encounter Story With Bigtruth - May 2017

     

    There have been hundreds, or quite possibly thousands of reported Bigfoot sightings within the confines of The California state lines. So why don’t they investigate sightings?  Even their mission statements says that they are bound by duty to protect the wildlife and the public. (paraphrasing)
 
    So, the question to be answered is this, “Should the Department of Fish and Wildlife have to investigate Sasquatch encounters?”  Yes… based on their own mission statement.  The point is clear, if a citizen in the State of California has a face to face encounter with a Bigfoot, and that person is distressed, then it is the duty of Fish and Wildlife to ensure that citizen that they are safe.
 
    I wish Claudia the best of luck in her law suit against The California State Dept. of Fish and Wildlife, and we here at Bigtruth offer her our support and will continue to bring you the story every step of the way.

Iowa - Harper's History Vol.1 #16





by Scott Harper

  Iowa became part of the United States of America after the War of 1812 in an uncontested manner. But, despite its long history, the state doesn't seem to have very much of a history of Sasquatch sightings prior to the 1970's. From then until present day, there is a wealth of reports, however. Why the dearth of reports prior to the 1970's? Especially with states around it that have a lengthy list of pre-Patterson/Gimlin footage (1967) reports.






  There is a report filed in September of 1869 of an "ugly, sandy-haired wild boy". It was seen eating fish in a river. This sighting took place Gilbert, Iowa.

  1884 saw the report of a "wild woman" in the woods around Dubuque, Iowa. Hunters saw her standing very still, with her back to them. They wanted a look at the front of the creature, and quietly slipped around to see her from that viewpoint. Upon them doing so, the creature loosed an "unearthly scream", and ran away, hiding behind a tree. When the hunters again attempted to get closer, the Sasquatch simply ran away. The hunters spent two more hours searching for her, but she was not found again.






  1899 proved to be an active year for sightings in the state. Near Diagonal, Iowa, a "wild man" of was spotted near a farm. The farmer chased the creature away. He, and other men, banded together to search for the Sasquatch, but never found it.

  Also in 1899, a Sasquatch of "immense size" attacked a chicken house near Afton, Iowa. The barking of the farmer's dog alerted the farmer to the situation. The farmer chased the "wild man" away. But the creature took several chickens with it.






  Near Macksburg, also in 1899, a "wild man" of "gigantic stature" chased a man who was in the woods searching for livestock that had gone astray. The sighting caused a stir, making people very wary of being outside alone, especially at night. Women, and children were especially looked after closely in the aftermath of the chase.






  Also in 1899 there was a report filed from near Des Moines in which a group of men claimed to have actually captured a "wild man". They said the creature fought with "phenomenal" strength, using his mouth in the fight as much as his hands when they subdued him. It seems that the "wild man" ended up in a circus.
From there, I couldn't find any record of Sasquatch in Iowa until 1970. Why? Why the lack of reports? Could the Dust Bowl, and the Great Depression—which hit the state's farming businesses very hard—have been the cause? Could Sasquatch in the state have been living, in large part, from the relative ease of farm crops growing the fields? The disappearances of a percentage of those crops may have prompted the Sasquatch population in the state to migrate elsewhere in search of easy food supplies. Is that possible? Could the Sasquatch in the area simply, for the most part, vacated the state for about seventy years before population pressures in the surrounding regions forced them back into it?
