Bigfoot Encounters

Ballesteros, Illocos Del Norte Phillipines 1961

I grew up in a small village called Ballesteros in the province of Illocos del Norte in the NW corner of the island of Luzon in the Philippines; then we immigrated to the United States in 1974.

When I was a child, there were often traveling carnivals that would come through our town. One carnival advertised 'a cannibal' that we could go into a tent to walk passed and see. When I went in the tent, I saw a huge (6') muscular, stocky & hairy creature that was held in a cage. It had an ape-like face and was rattling the cage. They were feeding it raw meat. The man who had the creature said it came from Sarawak on Borneo.

We were just a lot of kids from the village who went to see the Carnival that was in town.
