Watch For Sasquatch On Road

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on October 20th, 2005

Canadian parody site, The Toque, posted a "humourous" article entitled, "Watch For Sasquatch On Road: Keep Your Big Foot Near The Brake Pedal.

Tourists and travelers are warned to be cautious driving through British Columbia this Spring. With the warm weather approaching, sasquatches will be migrating to their summer habitats.

"You’ve got to be careful driving at night," said Ministry of Highways official Dane Fredricksen. "If you’re not paying attention, a sasquatch can wipe out your Toyota Corolla faster than you can say ‘Harry and the Hendersons’."

This cautious sasquatch studies the highway, waiting for an opportunity to cross to the other side.

While this article and the stories contained in it are fictional, I did find an interesting post by a Dr. Pat Sullivan on a website guestbook several years ago. I found it very interesting to say the least. I emailed the Dr. and received no response. I even did a phone directory search for a listing in the town that was listed and called the 2 numbers that came back for that name with the same results; no response. I guess it goes down as one of the ones that got away.

Back in 1979 I was called upon to assist at an automobile accident about 30 miles northeast of Dallas Texas. The automobile had collided with "Large Bear" according to the police radio and its occupant was pinned in the front seat by the animal which had gone through the windshield. Both were still alive when I got there. The place was covered with military and police vehicles and the "bear" was emitting great screams. I was not allowed to approach the vehicle until bear was removed. A police officer shot the animal several times before it stopped screaming. The scream was definitely not bearlike – in fact it sounded almost human. They kept me and all other civilians about a hundred feet away while the military personnel covered the "bear" with a large black tarp and loaded it into a capped truck. One could se the outline of the body under the tarp – it had very long legs, both front and back and was shaped like a very large man. I asked to see the animal before they took it away. They treated my request with a cold "No!" and told me to mind my medical business. The woman was unhurt but in shock. She kept saying that what she hit was not a bear but a big hairy man and others gathered around were saying that it was a bigfoot. I never saw anything about the accident in the local papers.

    Years ago my father (a true cynic with a very practicaL streak) was put in a position where he was forced to shoot and kill three black bears in the East Kootenays, where we lived. He was in a lot of danger, and it was deemed self-defense by provincial authorities.

    He told me “they screamed like human beings when shot. I never want to do that again. It was way too disturbing.”

    So, I don’t know whether or not the noises the animal made would be so reliable as an argument for it. Seems very easy to confuse the sounds if you’ve never shot a bear yourself before…the eye-witnesses, however, are another matter. Who knows, since the doc didn’t see it and no other names were taken…

    This is not the first time the Government was involved in a cover up.
