New Mexico
2005 Colfax County, New Mexico Sunday January 30, 2005
Angel Fire Ski lift: Footprints were sighted by a older married couple who saw tracks from a ski lift. The tracks trailed off into the line of trees to their right. The trail of tracks they said were made in fresh powder, approximately 15 inches deep on top of a snow pack near the main summit. The informants said the trail was fresh, not kicked-up snow, but a straight line of tracks from one side of the ski lift to the other on their first early morning ski-lift ride up the mountain. The tracks went directly under the lift, which they estimated to be at the 10,000-foot elevation level and in deep snow. The weather was brisk but clear and not snowing at the time. The woman said she was of Ashiwi Indian and Spanish heritage and her maternal great-grandmother, whose parents were inhabitants of the Shiwona territory in what is now New Mexico first warned her of the “Great Atahsaia” when she was very young. They believed Atahsaia is a bad spirit hair-covered cannibal giant that kidnaps little children and women, taking them away to the great Spirit Mountain. Today the informant called the creature ‘bigfoot,’ admonishing as she talked that "bigfoot was not to be tracked down or hunted, it is a bad omen of things to come."

2005 Del Norte County, January 7:30 am
A traveling salesman reported he saw tracks that "seemed to walk with great leaps" into and through Patrick Creek Campground 3 weeks ago in a dusting of snow on the north side.  He said he was driving along hwy 199 and stopped to read the board there at the entrance to Patrick Creek Campground, which is north of the town of Gasquet, CA. When he finished perusing the board, he stayed for a few minutes to take a leak, and then enjoyed the tranquility and the cold breeze blowing when he noticed the tracks.  The informant said he didn't go into the campground, but at first observed the tracks from a distance at the entrance board then realized they must have come from across 199 and go into and through the grounds of the park. The campground was closed and he was in a hurry to drive onto Cave Junction across the state line in Oregon for an appointment. But he said even with the distortion in the snow, the tracks were a good deal larger than his size 11 boot and the length between footprints stretched beyond his own capability. It was a single line of tracks, one creature. No other information no camera with informant.

2002 June, nearby Gasquet, California, a couple opening up their cabin for the summer, taking stuff to the house from the trunk of their car - - back and forth to their trash barrel, watched a sasquatch standing in the middle of their driveway watching them. They froze, just looking at each other, then went back into the house but didn't know what to do. The phone was not connected and they were not armed. "We heard they were around these parts for years, but never seen one before this," he told the investigator. "We don't know what it was doing there, but when we got nerve to look out again, it was gone anyway. It was dark brown to black and very tall with shoulder bulk. I guess they do exist." Several 15 inch tracks were found in the dirt.

April 2001 a large sasquatch described as like the Patterson film creature crossed the road near the town of Etna, California around 11 o'clock Thursday night with a smaller sasquatch in tow. The informants said the creatures were clear in their highbeam headlights and did not look at their on coming car. They both were quite black in color and in a hurry crossing in a southerly direction. The larger one seemed larger than what the informants saw in the Patterson film, but witnesses claimed it could have been their imagination, stating they only saw the Patterson film once on television but felt it was the same kind of upright walking "something."

1999 On the morning of May 9, a 25-year old woman known in the area as a volunteer firefighter said she saw an 8-foot tall Bigfoot apparently trying to catch fish in Ewing Reservoir, north of Hayfork.

Summer 2000 - Current ongoing discussions and investigations of Bigfoot sightings in and around Pineville, Louisiana near Toledo Bend Lake.

Summer 2005 - James "Big J" Smithers bass fishing in his favorite cove on Toledo Bend Lake spotted something on the shore that was sitting under a tree. The figure was dark, covered in black hair. Smithers said "I think it was watching us fish, but I'm not sure what it was doing." There was another boat with an older couple crappie fishing, they pointed to it and nodded that they saw it too. Smithers thought it might be a joke, but it was very hot on the lake that weekend and "a clown in a gorilla costume would be overcome by the heat inside that thing." They decided to tell Fish and Game.
