Sasquatch legend visits Port Alberni By CP
Toronto Sun: Thursday, November 14, 2002
PORT ALBERNI, B.C. -- Several people have reported sightings of huge creatures resembling the legendary Sasquatch in central Vancouver Island. Legend says the Sasquatch, the elusive wild ape of the Pacific northwest, stands seven feet tall and has long hairy arms, a short neck and flat face. The name was derived in the 1920s from the Chehalis Indian band near Harrison Lake, B.C. In the United States, the popular name for the creature is Big Foot.
People say they have
seen the creatures on the highway between Port Alberni and Tofino, at
Long Beach on the island's west coast and have heard them howling in Indian
Bay. Arnold Frank and his nephew Patrick Frank said they have seen one
of the creatures twice. However, local conservation officers said they
had received no reports of Sasquatch sightings.
