New Bigfoot Data Termed "Promising"

Harrison Hot Sprints, BC --- John Green, author of "On the Track of the Sasquatch" and editor of the Agassiz-Harrison Herald says new evidence of a Bigfoot in Alberta, Canada holds promising evidence of the existence of the giant creatures.

Green, a Columbia University Journalist who is publisher of the weekly paper in this beautiful easy-going little Canadian valley has made trips to more than 1100 scenes of Sasquatch sightings in Oregon, Washington, California and Canada during the past 12 years.

He recently visited Big Horn Dam, near Nordegg, Alta, where 5 workmen spotted a mysterious figure at least twice as big as a man.

Green says that he talked to others in the area including Indians who report they have seen "giant creatures" six or seven times recently. "But they are not providing any details. Their attitude is that the creature or creatures are not bothering them, so why bother the creatures?" Green explained. He added that they are "physically afraid and don't want the creatures antagonized."

The Bigfoot giants - and Green says he saw many tracks - are said to talk erect and are covered with hair. The editor told The Journal that the descriptions of the creatures are identical to those of the big foot creatures, which he investigated in the Estacada area last year and earlier in Northern California. The descriptions also coincide with 1920 reports of Mr. St. Helen's Hairy Apes.

Most recent sightings in the Northwest were reported last summer near Aberdeen, Washington by a sheriff's deputy on the notch side of the Columbia River at Stevenson, Washington by a fisherman.

Green has checked on more than 300 reports on the strange creatures and has investigated more than 100 cases. "I've never seen a Sasquatch but I've certainly seen lots of convincing evidence," Green said. He is critical of academicians for not carrying out more scientific investigations into the nature of wide spread sightings and believes universities should take responsibility for answering questions raised by these reports.
