Hairy Men 1934
Reports that survivors of the tribe of wildmen known as Sasquatch, a race of ferocious hairy giants, who dwelt in caves in British Columbia years ago, still are roaming the rocky wilds near Vancouver, have been revived.
The tribe was believed to have become extinct thirty years ago, but during the last year it frequently has been reported that survivors have been seen prowling near scattered settlements around Vancouver. The wildmen are described as "hairy giants, nine feet tall, with a ferocious appearance and demeanor."
Mrs. James Caufield, living on a farm near Harrison, B. C., is the latest to report having seen on of the giants.
Mrs. Caufield relates that she was washing clothes in a river when she heard a buzzing sound similar to that made by a humming bird.
"I turned my head," she said, "but instead of a bird there stood the most terrible thing I ever saw in my life. I thought I'd die for the thing that made the funny noise was a big man covered with hair from head to foot.
Mrs. Caufield's screams brought her husband running out of the house just in time to see the giant run off into the bush.
On another occasion two canoists reported that the giant saw them paddling down a river and started hurling rocks at them.
