Bigfoot Encounters

Teton County - Jackson, Wyoming

Two men reported seeing an unusual "Big Foot-like creature" on Snow King Mountain near Jackson, Wyoming early Tuesday morning. The report was confirmed by the Jackson Police Department.

  Robert Goodrich and Glenn Towner, no hometown or ages listed, reported to police that they were chased off Snow King Mountain by a "Bigfoot-like creature;" huge, approximately 12 feet tall with long, dark hair and arms, which hung almost to the ground. The two men said that they were going to visit a friend who had built a lean-to on the mountain when they encountered the creature. The men told police the creature breathed heavily and made a moaning growl-type noise. They described the creature as having a simian-like face as big as a stop sign and that the creature was hunchbacked.

Goodrich and Towner told police that they ran when they spotted the creature, and that it followed them. The last time they saw the creature, it was standing under a street light near the Ramada Snow King Inn in Jackson, the spokesman said. The two men said they were going back Tuesday to take pictures of any possible tracks but as of this date, the report contained no other evidence. The police reported that the two men had not been drinking.

This report was posted in 1980 and sent to Bobbie Short by the retired police officer who took the report; his name has been withheld. December, 2000.
