Historical Sasquatch Sighting Reports From 1792 Up To 1905 And Beyond

Before you watch the video below, I want to give you all some facts regarding certain wildlife populations in North America, hopefully it will give you some perspective on certain things about the sasquatch on how encounters and sightings of this creature are so few and far between.

Now,  for the record, I live in Washington State, in the city of Vancouver, I am literally just 20 minutes from the Cascade mountains and the Columbia river gorge, which is a very densely forested area.

I know that we have a pretty good population of black bears and mountain lions in this area, but in the last 30 years, I have never seen either one of these animals.

Both of these species tend to shy away from human contact whenever possible, but just because I haven’t seen them, doesn’t mean that they aren’t there.

Here is some information on Mountain Lion populations in the United States:

The solitary and wide-ranging nature of the mountain lion makes it difficult to directly estimate populations. Habitat fragmentation, degradation, lack of connectivity and cultural intolerance of mountain lions even on prime habitat makes it difficult to use habitat density to extrapolate and calculate populations on a large scale. This means we just don’t have good estimates of mountain lion numbers in the United States. Nor do we know precisely what population levels are required in order to maintain genetically healthy subpopulations that are ecologically effective on the landscape. State game agencies have estimated mountain lion populations in the United States to be between 20,000 and 40,000 lions.

Here is some information regarding Black Bear populations:

American black bears typically live in relatively inaccessible areas with thick vegetation and plentiful edible materials however, due to their large range, the climates black bears live in can be quite different from one another. The black bear population in the United States is estimated to be 339,000 to 465,000 and is considered stable or increasing.

Now, we know these animals are here, we know because of occasional sightings, also, they leave tracks, scat and…even though it is incredibly rare (almost impossible in fact) to stumble upon the carcass of a mountain lion , or a black bear in the wild, but we know they are here even without a single body being found.

So, using that logic, why isn’t it possible, that a large, bipedal hominid lives right along the side of Mountain Lions and Black Bears in the forests of North America ? We know that the Sasquatch is here, we have sightings, along with other physical evidence, like tracks, scat and even hair samples.

The video below is going to discuss various sightings of the sasquatch from newspapers and publications that date back at least 200 years.

Research in this particular field didn’t really take off until the 1950’s when a few intrepid men, Rene Dahinden, John Green, Grover Krantz, and Peter Byrne decided to dive head first into the search for this elusive creature.

Since then, many have picked up the mantle and carried on where the above named individuals left off and just like their predecessors, they have been the target of ridicule, but have ignored that and decided to move forward with their research.

So, whether you believe in sasquatch/bigfoot or not, is of no consequence to me,  like many others, I will continue the search until this centuries old mystery is solved.
