  • Rick Noll on why we don't have a Sasquatch

    "I will say one thing right now - I am getting pretty tired of listening to the wild speculations about Bigfoot's intelligence and very little disclosure as to really just how much time and effort was or is being placed on the task. It seems to be the hot excuse for a lot of researchers... these things are too intelligent, they know what a gun is, a camera, they can see infrared, have super hearing, blah, blah, blah."

    Here are my reasons for all the failures:

    1. No one is spending enough time in the woods on the search,
    2. Not many know what to do in searching, overlooking things, or vice-versa, seeing things that aren't significant to the task,
    3. There are not many of these animals around,
    4. They, like most animals who live in the forest, know how to camouflage themselves quickly and easily,
    5. Most encounters with humans are probably mistakes on the part of the Bigfoot, yet researchers are trying to fill in the picture with them as to being something significant.

    An American Bigfoot in Iowa ...
    ( They don't just grow tall corn there, evidentally ... )

    An American researcher claims Bigfoot attacked him when he tried to shoot it.
    He wants to prove once and for all that the mysterious Sasquatch definitely does exist.
    Clifford LaBrecque, now 65 of Cameron, Missouri told the Examiner he had been watching the creature for about two and a half months on the outskirts of Des Moines, Iowa back in 1977.

    The fearful attack took place about 11 pm.
    That night LaBrecque decided to shoot the creature. "It was about 25 feet away from where I was parked in my pickup truck." LaBrecque said. "Two of the creatures walked up from behind a hedge. One stopped but the other went to a woodpile, bent down and started to eat with it back towards me. I stayed in the car and waited for it to turn around but it just kept on gnawing at the wood. Finally I decided to shoot it from behind. When the animals turned and saw me, I got buck fever and couldn't shoot. As it came towards me, I couldn't get the window rolled up fast enough. It was really close." LaBrecque was petrified with fear as the creature advanced. He tells what happened next.
    "It loomed over the car. It was about 8 feet tall. It reached through the window, grabbed me and shook the daylights out of me. It was terribly strong. I could feel its face about 6 inches away from mine and believe me I was in a state of tremendous fear. I could feel my whole body shaking. I felt a sensation of being twisted around and pushed down onto the floor. The creature's eyes were burning with fury. I was angry, very angry at me for trying to shoot it. Then I pass out. When I regained consciousness it was gone.
    LaBrecque who owned a truck brokerage fir in Cameron is also president of Bigfoot Research Inc. He's been researching Bigfoot reports for about 49 years. He describes the thing that attacked him as "terrifying and enormous." He said that after the attack his memory was vague because of his terror as the thing shook him around. He decided to visit a hypnotherapist who had bought a vehicle from him. Eric Elster of Knoxville, Iowa. Elster told the Examiner that he hypnotized LaBrecque so that he would go back to the time of the attack. LaBrecque designed and constructed a life size model of the creature on the basis of the details that came to him under hypnosis as well as what he consciously remembers.
    The model is made of fiberglass and covered with artificial hair. He said it represented a typical young adult male. The model stands 7 ft 6 inches and if it were a real creature, would weigh 600 to 1,000 pounds. Its feet, of course, are what gives the creature its name, LaBrecque told the Examiner. They are 18 inches long and 9 inches wide and they leave a flat impression in the ground about 2 inches deep. LaBrecque said that Bigfoot's fur is dark brown in color and that it has a foul smell. On the model, the shoulders measure 4 feet across! The arms, which are 47 inches long, reach down to almost the creature's knees. Its biceps measure 27 inches around and the short massive neck has a circumference of 40 inches. LaBrecque says Bigfoot can make a wide variety of sounds. It has the ability to mimic other animals, he claims, Its typical voice is a low guttural growl, but at times it can sound like a hooting owl or even a barking dog. LaBrecque estimates that there may be as many as 5 thousand Bigfoot creatures in the United States and more in Canada. LaBrecque believes that no remains are ever found of dead Bigfoot because they bury or hide their dead. During LaBrecque's search for the elusive Bigfoot, he has investigated numerous reports of sightings.
    "I searched 15 years before finally meeting Bigfoot face to face," he says. "The animal exists and it's thriving in great numbers and increasing all the time." LaBrecque thinks that the Bigfoot is a very intelligent animal and tries very hard to avoid contact with humans. It's almost as if the beast has some form of primitive telepathy or instinct that warns it when man is nearby. But despite the attack, LaBrecque is still not afraid. "I harvested what I sowed," he said. "It's like picking a fight and then getting the heck beaten out of you."
    He offers some tips on where to look for Bigfoot. "The easiest place to look is around a small town or on the outskirts of a big city he says. There's plenty of foot for them there. If you think Bigfoot is in a certain area and there is only one water supply in that area, that is the best place to look.
    Finding Bigfoot is difficult enough. LaBrecque told the Examiner. Catching them or getting close enough to take a picture is almost impossible. The run very fast and they mostly come out at night. LaBrecque remains determined to investigate Bigfoot sightings. "I just got a call the other day about a sighting," he said. "I'll be going up there next weekend to check it out.
    LaBrecque feels that one day somebody will come up with positive proof that these creatures exist. Unless we can find the remains of one, the only way we will ever prove that Bigfoot exists is to shoot one. Then the world will have to believe that these creatures to exist. "Authorities won't accept anything like photos, casts of footprints and other evidence that has been presented so far.

  • Lets Talk Bigfoot
  • DVD Reviews: The Mystery of...The Sasquatch Triangle

    This DVD is quite well-done by Don Keating, who interviews such witnesses and investigators as Linda Wygle, Chuck Storrie, Terry and Treba Jahn, Rod Zorger and Richard Myers about their experiences and sightings. The main focus is on an area known as "The Sasquatch Triangle", which encompasses parts of Coshocton, Ohio, Guernsey and Tuscarawas Counties in Eastern Ohio. The main coloration of the creature being seen in that area is a white individual. One of Don's earlier documentaries, "Ohio's Abominable Snowman?" is also included as bonus material, available for the first time on a mass-production DVD. An audio recording from September 1991 is also played of a possible vocalization. I do highly recommend this DVD for everyone's Cryptozoological DVD collection. Don continues to produce high-quality productions and wonderful information. The documentary can be ordered
  • Here
  • for $20.00 plus $4.00 shipping and handling.

    Bill Green's Review: i just finished watching don keating new documentary dvd the mystery of the sasquatch triangle. it was very informative great it was like watching 2 documentarys in 1. the researchers interviews were great. there was a slight skeptical side to this documentary but that what made it great. don keating did a wonderful job narrateing this documentary. i realy liked how don & the researchers in this documentary actually showed the forests areas in ohio where the sasquatch creatures roam around. i give this documentary A++++. its definetly worth for any bigfoot dvd library. i realy liked how don talked about past ohio sightings as well. thanks bill green ct sasquatch researcher.i realy like how john horrigan also interviewed people in this documentary as well.

    We did a great show with Don Keating earlier tonight, but unfortunately, Blog Talk Radio LOST THE SHOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Only the first 15 seconds can be downloaded at our BTR site and on iTunes. We apologize for this technical glitch, and hope that Blog Talk Radio will not screw up our shows from now on. Hey, after nearly 30 shows since October, we have only lost 3, so I think we're doing pretty good. Anyway, our next show is Sunday night, with filmmaker Todd Partain. The show starts at 9:00 EST/8:00 Central. Please continue to tune in and support great research.

    Editorial: Is this hunt about Sasquatch or personalities?

    In some recent discussions I have had in recent days with trusted friends, we have been perhaps forgetting and taking our focus off the subject of our search, the elusive Sasquatch. We have instead focused on certain personalities, questionable or otherwise, and it's fun for a while, but it gets to the point to where this becomes nothing more than rumor-mongering and gossip and not about the true research. One of the individuals who seems to generate the most discussion is Tom Biscardi, who everyone in the Sasquatch community has an opinion about good or bad. He has been the subject of discussions I have participated in on many a night recently, especially since after the recent Paris, Texas expedition in which some things have been said that were considered "questionable." OK, well, so what if a tornado was not seen "on the ground," or there was no tornado warning for the area? A tornado was seen in the sky, wasn't it? It only becomes a tornado when it hits the ground, so what if Biscardi and his team called a funnel cloud a tornado? So what if things are misunderstood and exaggerated about Biscardi? Is this field about personalities and their perceived screw-ups, or about researching an unknown, hairy biped? Why don't we quit gossiping about so-and-so or such-and-such and get on with the business of proving these things exist? Have we turned into a bunch of old ladies talking over the neighbor's fence about so-and-so down the street who committed some unpardonable sin? Even if the gossip is true, what does it benefit us? What benefit is there in us destroying someone's reputation? Does it get us any closer to solving this mystery? Does running Tom Biscardi, Loren Coleman, Matt Moneymaker or any other polarizing individual in this field of inquiry down help us get that one piece of evidence that proves to the world there is a Sasquatch? Of course not. Now, things that do help us get closer to solving it is diligent field research, radio shows interviewing the researchers who get out there and put together this puzzle, blogs which provide information to the researchers, organizations getting together and having discussions on theories and ideas of how to do better research. These are positive steps, not tearing someone down, not sitting around gossiping like a bunch of old ladies. If we spent half as much time trying to solve this mystery as we do trying to tear someone down, we'd have moved on to Loch Ness by now!!!

    Review: Squatch Detective Radio 4-16-07

    This was a great show, with NESRA members Chuck Adinolfi and Chris Bartow discussing this weekend's NESRA expedition in the Adirondack Mountains. They talked about the equipment they used, along with their techniques and unique way of researching. They did find some things such as large deer tracks, and some of them spotted a large buck. They also recorded barred owls, as well as a possible Sasquatch vocalization. Mike Killen (the "Long Island Yeti") called in and gave his impressions of the expedition and what he experienced. I really enjoyed hearing the show and getting insights into their methods and techniques. Steve's next guest next Monday will be Kathy Strain, at 9:00 EST/8:00 Central, and can be found at As always, we strongly urge you to please tune in and support great research.

    Review: Sasquatch Experience 4-15-07

    This was supposed to be a show with Ray Crowe, but unfortunately we could not get a hold of him, so we had a roundtable with Bill Green, Melissa Hovey, Teresa Hall, James Baker and Steve Pickett and we just discussed a few issues. Melissa and Teresa discussed their upcoming show on Blog Talk Radio which is a joint venture with Squatch Media Inc. and the Sasquatch Experience (and will be discussed further in the next post), as well as things like the Patterson/Gimlin Movie, activity in Arkansas and Texas, migration patterns in Arkansas and Texas, and other various topics. It was a great roundtable discussion, and a lot of fun. Our next show is Wednesday night with Don Keating, at 9:30 EST. It will be our last Wednesday show, but see the next post for information on the replacement show...

    Anomalous Headlines

    McGowan's mystery bovid

  • Dogs Smell Cancer in Patients' Breath, Study Shows

  • Bigfoot Sighting Leads To Litigation


    By Matthew Scott Hansen

    Bigfoot, or the Sasquatch, has been portrayed in most so-called sightings as a shy, elusive creature. Not so in this novel by talented new writer Matthew Scott Hansen. In his debut thriller, Bigfoot is a vengeful, murderous "hominid," halfway between human and animal, who kills and eats hapless victims, partly from hunger, but also in revenge for having wiped out its community with forest fires. A wealthy computer executive, Ty Greenwood, has had his life ruined when after a non-fatal encounter with a Bigfoot, he is held up to public ridicule. Then people start disappearing in the Washington mountains, and an ambitious and ruthless female TV reporter sets out to make her career by spreading stories about a serial killer, instead of heeding a savvy cop's suspicions that what is happening may be due to something that is not human. Another character is a canny Native American actor who has a spiritual insight into the beast, and who is determined to hunt it down. Fossil remains confirm that an immense hominid once existed and the author provides a surprisingly persuasive case that they still do. A good story. (H. B. Fenn)

    quality Bigfoot Internet Radio Programming is not leaving the Blog Talk Radio Family on Wednesday nights. Starting very soon, Alliance of Independent Bigfoot Researchers members Teresa Hall and (American Bigfoot Society President) Melissa Hovey will have their own BTR radio program, to give a sorely-needed women's perspective on the subject of hairy bipeds worldwide. There will be more details on this as it develops, but right now, I do know it will air Wednesday nights at 10:00 EST starting April 25th, interestingly enough opposite Tom Biscardi's "Bigfoot Live" Radio Program. However, the "S.E.L." is going out with a bang, as we host Eastern Ohio Bigfoot Information Center founder Don Keating this Wednesday the 18th at 9:30 EST/8:30 Central. It can be found at As always, we strongly encourage all of you to please tune in and support great research.

    Sasquatch Experience Tonight...

    Sean Forker returns to the microphone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! After a several-weeks hiatus, Sean will be returning, just in time to interview International Bigfoot Society President Ray Crowe. Steve "Indy" Pickett will also be joining us as a third co-host in kind of another "roundtable" discussion. The program begins at 9:00 EST/8:00 Central and can be found at See the next post for a major announcement and addition to the Sasquatch Experience Media Network...
