Okemasis First Nation Reservation
26 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 called 'bigfoot.'
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 Reservation in northern Saskatchewan.
The footprints were spotted July 26 by Janet Gamble, who was jogging near
her home. 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 their reservation
elders. Since word of the mysterious visitor leaked out, the Gamble property
has been overrun with curious people seeking a glimpse of the bigfoot.
