Dark Side of Bigfoot

Coast to Coast AM: Dark Side of Bigfoot
Saturday – July 30, 2016
Host: Dave Schrader
Guests: Tim Baker, Jim King, Brenda Harvey Harris

Jim “Bear” King of the Bigfoot Outlaws program had his first Bigfoot encounter as a child 40 years ago. Since then, he’s been studying the creature with numerous sightings and enough stories to fill a book. He, along with fellow Bigfoot researcher Tim “Coonbo” Baker (VIEW PHOTOS), joined Dave Schrader to discuss the dark side of Bigfoot—the side you don’t want to encounter.

King described his first encounter at age six when he was awakened during the night by an intense hooting-clacking sound. There was a large ape-like creature slowly swaying back and forth, draped over the top wire of a barbed wire fence, he reported. Baker shared his first encounter as well. He recalled hearing an “extremely loud, very deep roar” while playing outside when he was three years old that caused his mother to pull him back inside the house. According to Baker, later that night he heard the neighbor’s dogs attack something and his grandfather fire a gun to scare it off.

The next day the dogs were found completely torn to shreds, he continued, noting the neighbors had packed up and left in the middle of the night and never returned. Baker’s grandfather warned him about a creature which appeared to be a cross between a large monkey and a bear that hung out in trees. King recalled an incident from the early 70s when his grandfather caught a glimpse of something at the fence line and started yelling. “That’s when we noticed this chimpanzee-type gorilla loping towards us on all fours on the ground,” he said. Baker shared another encounter when he was chased out of the woods by an angry Bigfoot who aggressively shook trees and growled at him for entering its territory.

Sasquatch on Navajo Reservation

First hour guest, Native American Bigfoot researcher Brenda Harvey Harris described how Bigfoot has terrorized a New Mexico reservation. Harris said she first heard reports of sasquatch by a river in her region on the radio during road trips to her grandmother’s house. She recalled one trip when her mother began screaming about something on the road, and wondered if it could have been Bigfoot. She detailed her own encounter from 1986, when something tried to open her door and she walked out to find a tall, scraggly creature on the porch. “It was scary to actually see one that close,” she revealed. Harris also speculated on the spiritual-physical nature of sasquatch and whether it is good or evil.

    sounds great…. and crazy too… but without me seeing what they saw… or seeing photos or videos or something…. its just a story…. and one about something we really don’t know if its real or not… so its difficult to believe without that proof to support it.

    Greetings dconstrukt,

    I see your point and I suggest you go looking for yourself. It’s not hard to find an area they’re in anywhere in the country. Just make sure you’re armed well enough to stave off an attack and watch your back as they usually move in groups. They’re a species of opportunity and as David Paulides finds in his Missing books you just might become a meal. Good luck and my best,

    @airforce47 – hi dude. I’m in miami bro… there isn’t anything here… LOL just python’s, cubans and lots of heat! LOL

    if i tried to go out into the everglades, I’d die from mosquito bites or the damn heat! LOL 🙂

    I appreciate your comments, but man, its too over the top for me to believe any of that stuff without seeing legit proof beforehand…

    “It’s not hard to find an area they’re in anywhere in the country.” Yeah, right. Anyone can spend a weekend in the woods and come back with a totally legit film that’s more detailed than the Patterson-Gimlin film. So why haven’t you posted yours yet?

  5. Fhqwhgads responds:

    Maybe I was a little harsh. A more accurate statement would have been, “It’s not hard to find an area they’re REPORTED anywhere in the country.” So yes, finding a patch of woods where someone says he has seen a Bigfoot is extremely easy. Going there and finding evidence that suggests to you that you have been close to a Bigfoot is harder, but depending on your subjective standards for suggestive evidence, it’s still probably doable. Going to a patch of woods and finding strong, detailed evidence is, if not absolutely impossible, obviously pretty close to it, and for the life of me I don’t know why anyone would want to deny that and make it sound easy. If Bigfoot is not a biological organism, that evidence is impossible, but even it he is, he must be extremely elusive. You’ve got a better chance of winning at Powerball than of stumbling into primo evidence — something better at least than a blobsquatch or tangled brush that you think might be a nest or stories of wood knocking — during a casual expedition.
