Comment on Perry's "What Are Your Thoughts?"

Dustin has left a new comment on your post "What Are Your Thoughts?":

We live in a world of overreactions. Why can't bigfoot be discovered and not get any new protections?. Well,its because of money. During the 90s the environmentalist came out of the woodwork to perpetrate a hoax on the American people by claiming the northern spotted owl would die off if old growth forest was logged. Million of acres of land were locked up only to burn in horrific forest fires some years later.Then it was discovered the owl can adapt to younger forest so again the federal government locked up more land to logging. As this happened the big lumber companies went to South America and started logging the rain forest. This unneeded action caused small towns to disappear all over the country. Millions of jobs disappeared and to this day have never recovered. This was all just because of a bird, Bigfoot is not a bird. Environmentalist would certainly claim the animal needs federal protection and demand all logging cease on federal lands.

If Bigfoot is discovered to be real (in which I believe they already have) the outcry for protection would overshadow the economy in the west and other mountainous regions. The effect would be absolutely devastating for the US. Most of us know that bigfoot doesn't need extra land. They have plenty of land for their numbers. Most always when people and bigfoot come together it's by accident and the bigfoot runs away. They must know that humans are a threat to them otherwise they would come closer to us. Bears are the same. They stay clear of humans except by some accident. Hers a fact. Wildfires destroy more forest in one year than loggers did in fifty. The days of clear cutting are gone and loggers want to use the forest responsively so that the forest will be here for our children and on.


Thank you for your thoughtful comment. ... Linda Newton-Perry  

What Are Your Thoughts?

Bigfoot: My Thoughts

I, and my husband, have been writing about bigfoot since 2009. It is my belief that these animals exist. We’ve followed the activities of a few well-thought of individuals (good reputations all). We believe that they’ve told the truth about seeing bigfoot.

We do hike in the woods looking for tracks and the animal, but not often. We enjoy going to sighting locations, but we’ve never observed one for ourselves.

I believe these bigfoot-type animals are just that─ANIMALS. It may be that they are not apes in origin at all. Take the Panda for example; it has a raccoon origin (kingdom). I however think, that bigfoots are probably some type of ape. I have no training on the subject of origins. So, my thoughts are simply opinions.

I would like for you to remember that this site is for ‘talking’ bigfoot. That is what these few words are about, talking bigfoot.

Thousands of viewers from the world over visit this site each month. I’ve often thought of quitting the site. The reason would be that this world has so many problems more important than the ‘discovery’ of bigfoot. And I believe if it is ‘discovered’ in the wrong way it could cost untold numbers of men and women their forest-based jobs. I certainly don’t want to be part of that problem.

New Sighting by Vernon Dell

Guest Editor-Blogger: Vernon Dell
(This experience is # 101 in our Archive Section)
 During the 80s after the St. Helens eruption I hauled logs out of the blast zone. Though the area was destroyed, some areas to the west and south were not touched by the blast. We had just finished a job on Weyco property and moved our small fleet of trucks to Cougar Washington. After a couple of days we took a small job further up on the river. One morning I was sitting inside my truck waiting for the truck ahead of me to pass when I saw something cross the narrow roadway and disappeared into the timber. It looked somewhat like a primitive man only it was about twice the size of modern man. As it crossed it looked at me and I could see it had been close to the blast zone at some point in time because its skin around the face looked to be scorched. It didn't look to be in pain it just had been burnt at sometime. I told a fellow trucker about what I saw and I was surprised to hear two others had seen the Bigfoot but with a female and youngster. So Im guessing some of the Bigfoots made it through the eruption. 


Thank you for the great sighting experience. ... Linda Newton-Perry

Paulides has been wrong on just about everything he's ever said about bigfoot including this one. First he's claimed they were native Americans then primitive man. Studies have shown that bigfoot behavior is more apelike not human. Many believe the bigfoot is the giant ape from China (Gigantic- Blackie). I myself believe bigfoot is an wild animal that has been able to hide itself from science because it has the ability to stay away from humans. It knows humans are the real threat to its survival. I got a short glimpse at a female bigfoot in the 1970 up near MT Adams and it looked and acted like a wild animal. It literally ran right over a re-prod tree 3 inches through breaking it off near the ground and not even slowing down.

Thank you Gus, for your comment. I and my husband believe that bigfoot is 100% animal.

Anonymous has left a new comment on your post "On Killing Bigfoot at Sru Lake, Oregon":

Now that I have retired from my job I can talk about the SRU Lake situation of 2007 thru 1012. We were ordered to lie to the public when it came out that damage has occurred at the campground in recent years.

I will say it now: Fact, no human was ever considered responsible for that damage. Fact, Is I never saw Bigfoot but did see its tracks and even helped destroy the tracks at one point because of an increase in public visitors looking around. 

Fact, I can say the orders came from the head office of FS not any local official. Fact, there has been 13 sightings and reports filed by the public since 2007 in that area.

Fact, I don't get along with Bill Emery and he doesn't like me much and has told me so. We have had a big disagreement on this. 

Emery thinks the Bigfoot is a danger to the general public. We do agree on this. Fact is, I believe that this Bigfoot will eventually hurt someone if its given a chance and needs to be tracked down and destroyed.

Emery is on the side for closing the area to the public which is near impossible to do under current federal law. FS is rapidly changing to a younger workforce that has no problem with non disclosure of this subject so I don't see any real changes coming. There have been sightings on the Elk River side, Johnson Mountain and China Flats as well as Eden Valley.

Bigfoot? So what do you think he looks like?

This encounter is very close to the place where the miners from Galice were found dead. The creature must have been a sasquatch. A Purless family that lived up on Jim Hunt Creek in the 20s had several encounters with a fierce sasquatch said to be mostly all grey and looking like a ape. Jim Hunt and Galice Creek are only 3 miles apart.

# 100 Archive Section

Linda Perry, My dads name was Frank Wilson. He was born at home in a small cabin in Josephine County in 1921. His older brother Henry and he hunted the area between Galice and Agness for 50 years or better. In 1943 they were hunting up in the headwaters of Galice Creek and had a nasty run-in with a bigfoot. Dad never forgot his only encounter with bigfoot up to his death in 1961. They had shot a buck earlier in the morning and hung it up to cool on a tree limb. He first became aware of something off in the brush watching them when he was making supper ready. Both Dad and Henry said they felt that something was stalking them the day before just out of sight but close enough for them to hear growls and brush being whipped around.

They had never caught sight of the animal that was following them but knew it wasn't a quote "normal animal" that they had run across before. Anyway later that night about dusk the sounds became down right scary. Dad said the unknown stalker howled very loud screams that became nerve shattering. Both of them were really concerned whatever this thing was it was getting more aggressive with tree limbs and brush.

They had enough and decided to move the camp about a mile down the creek. When they packed up they had to leave the deer till one or both of them could come back and get it. Dad made the hike back to the old camp and found the deer pulled down off the tree and absolutely mangled. Dad said both back quarters had been literally ripped of the deer. It was then Dad did a really stupid thing according to him. He decided he would look for the remains and find out what took it. As he followed a game trail up the mountain he caught sight of an enormous size animal that looked like a big ape squatting down and tearing meat off a hind quarter of his deer.

Dad said he had never in his life seen such a creature. It was very husky and covered with hair and had hands and feet like a human but still no part human. As soon at it seen him it stood up and let out a horrific scream. Dad turned and ran as fast as he could towards the old camp. He was sure this was it and the creature would certainly kill him. All that Dad remembered next was apparently being grabbed and thrown into a big fir. Dad hit the tree with such force he felt his ribs and left arm break. He knew he was done for. As he looked up he saw the giant creature looking at him from just twenty feet away. He watched the hairy beast as it looked at him with dead dark eyes. Thank god Uncle Henry yelled out for dad. When he did the sasquatch turned and disappeared into the trees. Dad told me he knew the sasquatch was going to finish him off right before Uncle Henry's yell. Of course Dad was scared and may have thought the worst. Neither he nor Henry ever saw the strange hair covered creature again. 


Ben thank you for your sighting. From the dates, above, your dad was only 12 when he encountered the bigfoot and died at forty. Are the dates correct? ... LNP

It was 1943 not 33 sorry. Yes dad died at 40 from cancer.

5. Bear Creek, above MelroseOregon
(A Douglas County Cop Report)
(January 4, 2010)

I was called to a report of a disturbance at Bear Creek up above Melrose. When I arrived a man reported that somebody was in this field scaring the cattle. I shinned my spotlight into the area where the cattle was running and saw a hairy, giant ape-man like thing walking across the field. I reached in the car for a microphone to try to scare it off. It just walked right through a three board fence and disappeared into the woods.
I made out the report only to get time off with pay to see the state doctor before returning to work.

Children's Bigfoot Story Teller, Linda Newton-Perry


Who is Punch?

Punch is a bigfoot puppet.

Punch no longer exists. Why?
For a time I worried that children, because
of their interest in bigfoot, would take to the
forests, without adults, searching for bigfoot.

On Youtube, some children did just that. So,
I decided to quit encouraging children's interest
in the subject.

I now tell children to be careful in the forests and woods.

BUT... Punch is no longer living at my house. Being a stuffed
animal, made into a puppet, he has probably been sent to
the dump with the rest of the 'what in the world is this?'
things. I donated him to a local used store.

Use the search tool to view lots of things Linda and Ms Sparkles
have done with Punch the Bigfoot Puppet.  Type in
Punch. Have a grand day, Linda Newton-Perry

Dr. Sykes and His Oregon Connection

When I first starting writing a bigfoot column for the local newspaper in my small town of Oregon, Betty Klopp called to tell me she had what she thought was a hair sample from a bigfoot. Click link to take you to her story. 

Last year Dr. Sykes, from Oxford, stopped by her home and asked for a few strands of the bigfoot hair/fur that she'd kept for all those years. He told her of all the hair samples he had, that her sample was the only one that came with a history. Her brother and maybe her parents actually observed the bigfoot that they claimed a trailer they were pulling hit.

Sykes did get back to Klopp and said that the sample was from a wolf. We are all very disappointed to 
hear that. Klopp was much impressed with Dr. Sykes, especially in that he got back to her on the results, personally, not leaving it to a subordinate.

Big Clyde: Emery Photo

(Bill Emery)

(August 8, 2010)

Linda and Chris, we had great success last night and 
early this morning. Bigfoot came within 25 feet of me and Hank. We put out salt licks last night to see if the animal would try to take it and he did. I am enclosing a snap of #6 camera. DO NOT put it on the site yet. We don’t want another thing like last week. You may tell your readers of it though. All together we got 4 shots. They will have to all be enhanced but we believe all are very good. This shot was at 6 AM, Sunday Aug. 8, 2010. The image in the background is an old rotten cedar stump. Thanks for your support!

I Want to Make it Clear ...

That in Oregon Bigfoot/Sasquatch has been
'discovered'! By whom? you ask.

BILL EMERY! ... He observed a bigfoot and
his trail cam clicked several great photos of the

Emery and his team took the photos and other
proof to several universities. The proof was said
to be great, but that only a body would be proof
enough for 'science' to take the whole business

I encourage you to type in Bill Emery in the search
tool for all the information. Big Clyde the animal's
name will work as well.

I don't intend to put in extra work on this subject.
All that you need is here on this site. Again:


P.S. There is a problem with his sharing the photos
with the public. He has been threatened, we've been told, with a lawsuit because the photos/discovery took place on government land.

4. Hyw 58/Cottage GroveOregon sighting
(January 2, 2010)

I never thought in my wildest dreams that I would ever tell a soul about my encounter. I’m a private person who never thought the bigfoot thing was anything but stories. Then it happened to me. Going to work last Nov. 28, I was in between Cottage Grove on Highway 58 when my car quit me. I was off the road in a wide spot waiting for somebody to come along.

No traffic at all being it was 4:00 AM. After waiting about a half hour I got out of my car to see if I could find the motor problem. It was then I heard a clack clack clack of something being hit against a tree down below me.  It was the strangest sound out there in nowhere.

After 5 minutes of it, it began to get much louder. Then it seems out of the silence of early morning came a horrible moan-like sound that sent the hair on my neck straight up. Then I heard the sound of somebody walking through the brush and woods.

Whatever it was would stop and start. The smashing of the ground sound it made, made me believe it was something rather large. Then it happened, this hairy black thing crossed the road right in back of my car on two legs. It was very large and tall. My god, I panicked and jumped in the car and locked the doors.

Maybe ten minutes later a truck came from the opposite direction and slowed down to see what my problem was. I yelled “Can I get a ride back to Cottage Grove with you?” The man said “sure” so I got inside his truck and never said a word to him or anybody else till now.

I’m 100% sure it was a bigfoot that crossed in back of me.

2. Retired from OSP and Now Has His/Her Say on Bigfoot
 (December 20, 2009) (From our Archives)

As a 30 year trooper for OSP, (Oregon State Police) I've seen many of the tracks you talk about on this website. The ones where I was certain no one could have placed them there. I was required to photograph and cast them.

Over the years I've done over 55 tracks that were over 17 inches and made by something of unusual weight.

I always turned the photos and cast over to the proper agency. Where they went from there is a mystery.
One time while checking on a report of vandalism on 
BarklowMountain near China Creek in Coos CountyOregon, I found a track that was 22 inches long. It was past a slide where no one could have left it. After taking the photo and cast, I was asked by the forest service to take it to a track expert in Washington State. He estimated the creature that made the print was over 1,000 pounds and 10 feet tall or taller.

"Jesus, I'm glad I never found the dude who made it."

Now that I'm retired I can talk about it.
Retired and Tired

Linda, I fear Ballyhoo is getting into the wrong side of bigfoot reports. It seems to me the last few reports you have received someone is wanting to verify these locations through calling government offices and wanting the exact locations. People need to understand that the ones coming forward with sightings may not want to be used as public investigation. Ballyhoo has always been here for people to report a sighting WITHOUT someone checking every word in the sighting for accuracy. If this is to be the new practice then people will not trust the site to report. All if not most find their sighting almost frightening because bigfoot is not suppose to be real. Adding the PROVE IT to the sighting is too much for most.


The Adams brothers are the ones wanting proof, not Bigfoot Ballyhoo. It is not our policy to require proof. 
However, the Adams spent much time and money on trying to find the area that a certain sighting took place. We understand their feelings/opinions on this subject. Our policy has not changed. Occasionally a viewer of Ballyhoo will voice his opinions and requests. Anyone may comment. As long as the comment does not include profanity or hateful in tone, we will allow it.

And of course many of us believe that the government knows about these animals. And we believe they should be truthful about sightings etc. Again, I've written this many times,  I believe that no one has the right to keep earth's animals from us.

 Best regards, Linda Newton-Perry

See 1 Comment just below for Adams' comment.

Well if Gary, Bobbie or Anonymous are willing to verify their reports, please contact me and either go up with us to the spot or tell us the exact location. You can email Linda and she will give you my phone number. Please help us out if you are telling the truth.

Government such as BLM and USFS will NEVER admit or talk about any sightings of Bigfoot. Bigfoot talk is taboo. They are forbidden to ever discuss any bigfoot sightings. I know because I was one of them. BLM 31 years.

Well, People Still Do It...

Do What?

Talk out both sides of the mouth

What's the point? Two individuals asked a government agency, locally, about a bigfoot sighting.

Both were told that no sighting was reported. But one, after the No response, added that a bigfoot could have been SEEN in the area--being discussed. Get the point?
