Beach, Vancouver Island British Columbia

A Sasquatch report was just featured on BCTV's 6 o'clock news.
It stated that there has recently been "several sightings" of
Sasquatch by people traveling on the highway between Port Alberni and
Tofino, and near Long Beach on Vancouver Island. A large dark haired creature
with reddish-orange eyes - and walking on two legs - was seen today off
the highway between Port Alberni and Tofino by two Vancouver Island men.

Perhaps related incident:
In a separate report from two Nuxalt anglers, while fishing about 30 yards
offshore said they saw two boqs either playing or after something that
was on the rocky shoreline in the same general area of Long Beach. Neither
man wanted to tell me their names but the report came in separately and
before the television news made it public.
The men described the boqs
as large shouldered, shiny black in colored and covered with thick hair
but not as long as the bears of that region on the mainland side and said, "you know, they looked like all boqs look, covered with a length of hair."
They said one of
the creatures was keeping an eye on them while the other scrambled about
the rocks after something they couldn't make out. Both creatures were
wet in appearance and made no effort to leave but stayed out in the open going about whatever Boqs do.
After watching the activity
for some minutes, the informants reportedly left the area out of respect
for the boqs but were too astonished to do anymore fishing and returned
home. A grand-daughter, Alissa, emailed me about the incident, saying that her "Pops" was quite surprised to have seen the creatures. (Alissa, Vancouver Island, BC)
