Well, here we are. Start with a little about how this all started and my story….. Many years ago at the age of ten years old I had my first sasquatch encounter. It changed my life forever. It was a lovely September evening and you could smell the crispness in the air. The time was appoximately 17:30. I had been around the yard and it was time to go inside. As I was heading for the door my dog Tasha started going nuts. She was very upset and I had never seen her this upset before. She was barking and snarling towards the river pulling on her chain like mad. She was tethered to a willow tree. I looked over at her and asked her “what’s wrong girl?” She did not even glance at me. I began to worry there may be a bear in the yard. It was the time of year for them to wander. I walked over to her to see what the fuss was about. I gave her a pet on the head and looked the direction she was looking. What I saw shocked me and made me freeze. There was a dark shaggy creature running away towards the river. The distance was about 100 yards but I saw it ran on two legs and was appox. 8-9 feet tall. There was also a very pungent odour in the air, kind of like vomit and rotten fish. The sun was low on the horizon and I could see it’s shape. Covered in long shaggy hair with no neck visible. It’s head had a point on top. I grabbed the dog’s chain to unhook her and take her in, but I couldn’t move. As the creature started to disappear down the hill it stopped and turned towards us. I could see the definite shape of hands with fingers and it’s arms were extremely long. It let out a scream I will never, ever forget. It was deafening and terrifying. It was then I managed to free the dog from her chain. I ran to the house as fast as my feet would carry me and slammed the door shut.
The years that followed were plauged with the same recurring dream. I would dream this creature was chasing me down through the woods. I tripped over a log and it would catch me, digging it’s sharp claws into my sides. I would wake up screaming. This happened for the next 4 years almost every night. I never did tell my parents about what I saw and why I was having these dreams. They would think I was nuts. Well as time went by the dreams did get fewer and fewer until they just never came back. By this time I was almost 17.
I forgot about this event for the next 10 years, but something triggered my interest at the age of 27. I’m not sure if it was a book or tv show, but I started to dig around looking for information on this creature. It fasinacted me now and the terror was just gone. I kept digging for more information as time went by and eventually got onto the internet. I found everything I wanted to know there.
That’s pretty much my story and how it has affected my life. The chase will go on until I can chase no more.
Currently I am 38 years old, and reside in Central Eastern Manitoba, Canada. I work in the Environmental Field and have a passion for the outdoors, conservation and Environmental issues. I have been happily married for 11 years, with two children.
Hobbies are being outdoors trekking through the bush, armed with a camera, listening to good music, cooking Italian (when I get the energy), getting involved in my community and, of course, spending time on the PC.
The passion of chasing the sasquatch has been a long one. I truly believe he is a very special individual. The decades of eluding people and not being captured are truly incredible.
