Seriously Seeking Sasquatch in Saskatoon

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on July 18th, 2007

Well, not just in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, but in the three western provinces of Alberta, British Columbia and Saskatchewan, as well as the two western territories: Yukon & Northwest Territories.

Western Canadian Sasquatch Research Organization

Bigfoot sightings sought

Red Deer group collects sasquatch reports

RED DEER — Seen Bigfoot lately?

If so, the Western Canadian Sasquatch Research Organization wants to hear about it.

The group recently advertised in the Mountaineer weekly newspaper in Rocky Mountain House, seeking anyone who may have found traces of the furry beast.

Mainstream researchers say Bigfoot is either a myth or a hoax. They say eyewitness accounts are unreliable and there’s a lack of solid physical evidence.

But group founder Sean Viala, 29, of Red Deer thinks the sasquatch may actually exist. That belief is based on an experience he and some friends had about 10 years ago while camping about 20 km west of Nordegg in west-central Alberta. It was about 5 p.m. and still light.

He said a hairy figure was moving along a cutline and strode into the trees.

“I would guess it was six-and-a-half feet to seven feet tall, covered in brown hair.”

Viala was stunned and a little scared.

“I’ve been camping in the … country all my life and I’ve seen all kinds of animals. This was nothing I could recognize.”

The campers tried to find clues as to what they had just seen, but there were no footprints.

Viala connected with other sasquatch watchers online and founded the precursor to his organization in 1999. About 30 members now belong.

Some go on expeditions and use special techniques developed by sasquatch researchers. The group concentrates on the front range of the Rockies from Waterton Lakes National Park on the border with the United States to Jasper National Park.

Each report filed on the group’s website is also checked. The dubious ones are weeded out.

“One woman wanted us to find one so she could mate with it,” laughed group member Brian Baillie, a chemist from Calgary.Edmonton Sun

    Very interesting and cool. Glad to hear about others seriously looking. Only one thing, that picture of big foot has to go. The whole point of big foot is that he walks upright. That looks like an over grown chimp (that would make him a billie ape, right?). A separate group of primates walking upright all the time is an important find, seeing how in the overall theory of evolution man is the only one that can do that. I think if the original stories and reports about big foot simply described them as a chimp or gorilla (walking on all fours) I believe that the only argument in the professional circles would be, “Are their other primates on the North American Continent?” But the issue isn’t just that–we also get to throw in, “they walk upright…” something no other known animal is suppose to do.
