GIANT BIGFOOT TRACKS FOUND IN PRINCE ALBERT, SASKATCHEWAN
Giant hominid tracks were found on a Native American reserve near Prince Albert, Saskatchewan (population 34,181) in late July 1998.
"The discovery of a footprint a third of a metre in length has members of a Saskatchewan reserve looking for signs of an elusive creature steeped in aboriginal (Native American) legend."
"Curiosity seekers point out that the tracks coincide with the disappearance of a dog and a bull on the Beardy's and Okemasis First Nation in northern Saskatchewan."
"The prints were spotted July 26 by Janet Gamble, who was jogging near her home."
"'When I noticed the footprint, I looked around to see it again, and stepped all over another print,' Gamble said. 'Realizing what I'd seen, I just panicked.'"
"Gamble and her husband Dennis followed the tracks which cut through the brush along the side of the road."
"Her husband and his brother videotaped the tracks after realizing how easily they could be washed away."
"In an effort to determine the actual nature of the footprints, the Gambles contacted the RCMP, the University of Saskatchewan and rserve (tribal) elders."
"'The RCMP told us they couldn't do much else (unless) something serious happened like a mutilation,' said Dennis Gamble."
"'The anthropology department of the university didn't seem very interested, he added."
"Archie Baptiste of the Red Pheasant reserve told them it was caused by Mistysen."
"Baptiste said Mistysen, which translates to big man or big person, are legendary creatures that do not go near people and always hide."
"Eugene Gandypie, a friend of the Gambles who helped with the tracking, doesn't understand why the RCMP aren't involved."
"'Early in the spring, a nearby farm had a bull go missing. It was later found dead with several bites taken out of it,' said Gardypie. 'Just this past week (i.e. August 1, 1998--J.T.), another bull has gone missing, and so has a Rottweiler from another farm.'"
"Gardypie said there were several droppings in the area that he said were not animal or human."
"'I don't know what it is, but with a 14-inch-by- 7-inch-wide print and a stride of 6 feet,' he said, 'It is definitely strange.'"
Prince Albert is on Provincial Highway 2 about 87 miles (119 kilometers) north of Saskatoon. (See the Citizen of Prince Albert, Sask. for August 1, 1998.

Prince Albert, Saskatchewan - The discovery of a footprint a third of a metre in length has members of a Saskatchewan reserve looking for signs of a creature steeped in aboriginal legend, and wondering if it is tied to the disappearance of a bull.
The prints were spotted July 26 on the Beardy's and Okemasis First Nation by Janet Gamble.
"When I noticed the footprint, I looked around to see it again, and stepped all over another print," Gamble said.She and her husband Dennis contacted the RCMP, the Univeristy of Saskatchewan.
"The RCMP told us they couldn't do too much else (unless) something serious happened like a mutilation," said Dennis. "The anthropolgy department didn't seem very much interested," he added.
Archie Baptiste of the Red Pheasant reserve told them it was caused by mistysen. Baptiste said mistysen, which translates
to big man or big person, are legendary creatures which do not go near people.
Eugene Gardypie, a friend of the Gambles doesn't understand why the RCMP aren't involved. "Early in the spring, a nearby
farm had a bull go missing, it was later found dead with several bites taken out of it," he said, adding another bull disappeared last week.
