First Perspective, Canada’s #1 source for Aboriginal News gives us an article today detailing several Bigfoot sightings from Manitoba, one from B. C. and another from Oregon by a honeymooning couple from Winnepeg.

One account is of 3 girls camping at Lake of the Woods, a provincial park on the border of Manitoba and Ontario. After bedding down for the night, two of the girls were wakened by an animal howling near their campsite. It started circling their tent, grunting and howling. It even bumped their sleeping friend, through the tent, causing her to roll over in her sleep. It continued circling the tent, dropping pine cones on it. It eventually made it’s way back into the forest, leaving the 2 terrified girls awake for the rest of the night. The one girl that slept through the ordeal woke up around 4 to hear the beast howling in the woods. They packed up the next morning and left.
Another Manitoba encounter details a woman driving along a highway late at night. She sees a figure squatting down at the side of the road. As she swerved her car to avoid a collision with the figure, she was drawn to see what it was. She was frightened to see it was a sasquatch.
It was holding something with both hands and eating it (perhaps roadkill). It seemed to move in slow motion as it lifted its head to look up at her passing by in her vehicle. The witness looked directly into its face, which was covered by dark hair, and its eyes appeared small and beady. Its face reminded her of a gorilla. It was swarmed by what appeared to be a cloud of mosquitoes. It looked hunched back because of the way it was sitting on the road.
As it stood up, she was afraid it would would come after her. She drove like a bat out of hell to the house of a family member, relating the story when she got there.
She had a hard time sleeping that night. To this day she doesn’t drive alone at night on this highway and she feels anxious when she drives through the area.
