Sasquatch hunters near Houston say they were attacked by bigfoot

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on March 19th, 2015

The Sasquatch didn’t like it when explorers in the Sam Houston National Forest drew too near him last week, and in his fury he hurled giant logs at the curious humans.

That’s according to Wes Germer, host of the Sasquatch Chronicle podcast, whose team ventured into the East Texas Piney Woods with the guide of Bob Garrett and sons, a Conroe family of self-declared “cryptozoologists,” who have tracked legendary creatures through the woods north of Houston for years, and who document thier findings in various bigfoot blogs.

The expedition didn’t photograph the monsters—it seems the Sasquatch is bashful before cameras, as it has never appeared in photo before– but that doesn’t mean the researchers didn’t get close to their mysterious subjects.

“My heart was just pounding in my throat,” said Germer on his Sunday podcast as he recounted his chilling brush with the unknown giant.

In the early night, the forest was tame as Germer and Garrett sat and chatted in camp while the crew was out exploring with flashlights and night vision goggles. Then the noise came.

“We hear this thing crash through the brush. And then we hear this thing start crashing, just crash! Crash! Crash! Crash,” Germer said. “And you can hear it walking and you can hear it breaking branches as it’s going.”

At first he said he was upset that one of his team members was making such a racket, and thought it strange that someone would try to navigate without a light. But quickly he noticed the faint glow of the lights far away and all of his team gathered in the distance. Garrett announced: this forest creature wasn’t one of them.

Then the giant bolted off, and plowed fiercely through the dense brush with astonishing speed.

“This thing moved so fast, it probably covered 100, 150 yards like nothing,” Germer said.

The commotion settled, and Germer estimated the creature was just 30 or 40 feet beyond the tree line of the campsite, but the thicket obscured it entirely. Garrett, a seasoned East Texas tracker, loaded his gun and ducked into the brush to catch a glimpse of the monster. Germer followed, but a glimpse would never come.

Because as the two men neared the spot where they heard the beast lurking, a noise grew in the air, like the beating of helicopter blades coming straight for them.

“And I knew what it was. It was a log coming, and it was a big log, and you could hear it being thrown,” Germer said. “And I ducked down because I thought for sure it was going to hit one of us in the head.”

“But it hit a tree right in front of us, and I just [couldn’t] believe that [was] happening. I knew what just threw that log at us. I knew what just paced us in,” he said.

The two men were lucky to come out with their lives, and Garrett declared the beast had issued them a warning. But it wasn’t the only time Sasquatch threw logs at the unwelcome intruders to his forest domain. Germer recounted a time in the very same trip when a log crashed down into the spot where his girlfriend had sat just moments before.

Garrett also reports multiple instances of Sasquatch log-throwing in the Piney Woods on his blog, Sasquatch Mountain. According to one post, he and his son once took shelter in their truck as it was bombarded by multiple Sasquatches in an abandoned campsite left ransacked by the creatures.

“We could hear them run back and forth and the tree limbs and broken trees flew in to camp, nonstop,” he wrote in 2014.

In the end, Germer’s Texas trip was lush with close encounters. One of his team members and podcast cohosts, Shannon Legro, reported the incredible sound she described as an owl that “went into a monkey.”

“We heard an owl go off, and we were like ‘yea, ok that’s an owl.’ Well whatever decided to go off after that, it sounded more like you were in a primate house, and it just sounded like a monkey trying to be an owl, and then it sounded more like and owl after that. It was incredible. It was awesome,” she said.

Germer also witnesses the strange sound, but he reflected on his experience to determine that it didn’t have the ring of a Sasquatch, and in fact he doesn’t believe it was one. So what could it be? “A freakin’ werewolf,” he suggest.

    one detail i find odd… is this thing running or moving at high speeds.

    if you watch the patty video, to me, i can’t see that bigfoot running or moving fast… doesn’t seem possible with the size and the way it walks.

  2. cryptokellie responds:

    Of course during all this incredible Bigfoot activity, not one photograph was obtained…uncanny.

  3. cryptokellie responds:

    Not to get off subject but, if you look at the body form of say the hippopotamus or a large crocodile and then be aware that they can both outrun a human for 50 yards, it’s not unreasonable for a Patty-form figure to move at speed if it needs to. The largest gorilla can out run a man. A grizzly bear can outrun a horse.

  4. dconstrukt responds:

    cryptokellie …. not only that… and they were out looking for one… and not one photo, audio, video… nada. 🙁

  5. Goodfoot responds:

    It seems our scowling scofftics have discovered the pleasures of each other’s company. Tell you what, guys. I’d like to send you to the woods for a weekend, with the assignment of coming back with a photo of a cougar. Or a rattlesnake, for that matter.

  6. Grasshopper responds:

    dconstrukt: Well, you can hold a camera or you can hold a gun, but you can’t hold both. If it’s night-time, I’d rather be carrying my gun. Unless you have a night vision camera, I don’t think a regular camera with a flash is even going to do you much good. What? You gonna face a furious Squatch hurling logs at you, and point your camera in his general direction and say, “Say Cheese!”. Yeah……… uh – huh. Click…. lights out.

  7. dconstrukt responds:

    cryptokellie – true true, BUT your point is flawed… you’ve SEEN those animals run… video or others have and reported it with photos, video etc.

    who’s seen a bigfoot run? show me the video of it… so we can see.

    you can’t, till then, its just speculation.

    Grasshopper – no disrespect bro, its 2015… there’s these things called GOPRO cameras… and they’re out there looking for one, vs some random ppl with guns out there… your argument is invalid. 🙂

  8. cryptokellie responds:

    Nice try…
    No rattlers here anymore but will a copperhead do? I could get one not too far from my backyard. As yet there are no mountain lions in my area but with all the deer road-kill, I shouldn’t think it will take too long. The coywolves are here now along with black bears as well. Let me list the animals I have seen in my backyard and that I have and could have photographed; white tail deer, red fox, coyote (coywolf), turkey vultures, horned owls, several kinds of bats, raccoon, skunk, red tailed hawk, Cooper’s hawk, opossum to name few. By the lake there are Bald Eagles, osprey, otters, beavers and too many rodents/vermin to name. Give me your address and I’ll send you a few images. How about one with turkey vultures sitting on my roof?

  9. cryptokellie responds:

    Bigfoot would presumably be a biped and all true bipeds (humans and birds) can run. An ostrich can weigh over 300 pounds and it can run up to 40 MPH. If it’s a biped, chances are very very good, it can run in some capacity. Most animals are faster than people imagine.
    Yes, there is no definitive proof of a running Bigfoot or of Bigfoot itself for that matter but there are some videos showing purported Bigfoot running.The “Memorial Day Bigfoot” video is one though I don’t actually think that shows a real Bigfoot and is a prank being played on the picnicking family. There are others.
    My point is; think about Shaquille O’Neal, he is of Bigfoot size – 7’+ tall & 330 pounds – size 23 shoes -16″ feet – and he probably beats you in a race.

  10. dconstrukt responds:

    true true…. but… there’s no evidence of this… in my mind, until we have this to confirm, its just a very reasonable assumption (very reasonable) that may or may not be true.

    memorial day bigfoot? i can’t see anything on that that says bigfoot… like zero…. that thing was a person… the only video i’ve seen that remotely looks real is the freeman footage… but then there’s questions about that (how it moves differently than patty).

    oh and here’s a bit of news for ya… i run the 40 in 4.4,

    I’ll bet on me over shaq any day. (I just need a few minutes to stretch, otherwise i’m done).

    but I have zero stamina. zero. he’ll run laps around me. friend of mine used to work for him doing music back in the day… he had some of his clothes and man… they were HUGE! his shoes are gigantic!

  11. cryptokellie responds:

    Your time of 4.4 in the 40m is better than the fastest average times of all the NFL Wide receivers at 4.55 according to the NFL combine report. You are either very fast or your timing method is off. We are on the same page though and I was only kidding about the race. All bipeds are capable of running and since the only true bipeds on the planet right now are humans and birds, all of which can run to some degree, the same can be projected for a Bigfoot. How fast could a Bigfoot run? Probably fast enough. I was fast back when races were only measured in yards…lol.

  12. Fhqwhgads responds:


    Making up words to belittle those who disagree with you is only clever in 3rd grade. Belittle if you must, but at least do it like an adult. To call someone a “scoffitic” is not only juvenile, it is used as an excuse for dismissing wht he has to say rather than engaging his argument — ironically, while complaining of the same behavior from him.

    Besides, I think it is entirely possible for someone to be a firm believer in Bigfoot yet still roll his eyes at this story, just as many of those most firmly convinced of the reality of Sasquatch felt free to scoff at idea that there might actually be a specimen in Rick Dyer’s frezer.

  13. dconstrukt responds:

    LOL… cryptokellie – yes, its very fast… had a scholarship to play football but was in a car wreck and tore my ACL… so no more football for me.

    i guess looking at patty and how clumsily it moves… i can’t see how it would run fast like these guys claimed…

  14. Becho responds:

    I heard a local story a couple of weeks ago about a couple of guys camping on a log landing in a clear-cut. They rolled a heavy log that was in their way off of the landing and started to set up their camp. After a few minutes the log (estimated to be twelve to sixteen inches in diameter, but I didn’t hear how long it was, just that it was way to big to be picked up.) came hurling back up and onto the tent. They jumped back in their vehicle and left everything. The guy who told the story said, “As far as I know the tent is still up there.”
    I also have another friend who used to do a lot of backpacking up in the Olympic mountains. He said he had a small uprooted tree thrown at him once.
    These stories are common in my part of the woods.
    I know they can move fast. We’ve had them circle us in very challenging terrain and cover ground in a matter of five or ten minutes that would take a man an hour to cover and they weren’t running.
    As far as Patty goes, her right thigh is injured in that film. That is why, I believe, she was caught in the open.

  15. dconstrukt responds:

    Becho – cool stories…. but dude… if there’s so many sightings… its 2015.

    we have the technology.

    even for the average middle class joe.

    go pro cameras on your heads… like surfers wear… like any other extreme sports person wears….

    how can they capture “one off” moments …yet NO ONE can get a photo, video or anything of any bigfoot despite there being “many” of them?

    you said there’s all these things happening… and people are looking for them, yet NOT ONE PERSON can produce any evidence, video, photos other than a great story?

    sorry dude. my BS detector goes off immediately.

    makes zero sense.

Sorry. Comments have been closed.
