Our long time member Tirademan (R.I.P. Scott McClean) compiled this extensive archive of Sasquatch related newspaper articles and donated it to the BFF before his passing. The earliest articles in this collection are from 1818 in Florida, 1877 (Australia), 1884 (Canada) and 1764 (Europe).
I somehow unearthed this apparently valid U.S. government document from 1959. It seems to be an agreement that Himalayan expeditions searching for Yeti abide by regulations imposed by the Nepalese government. I am wondering what would have prompted this agreement by U.S authorities.
Politically in 1959 the U.S would have sought to influence China's neighbors as a buffer against communism. The CIA was actively backing a violent Tibetan independence movement against China. I'm not sure if Nepal was under threat by China at that time or what their politics of the day were.
But what does fighting communism have to do with Yeti?
BTW, I ran a search and did not see this document discussed elsewhere on this forum. Apologies if I overlooked it. I do see it posted on many other sites but no meaningful answers as to why such a document came into existence.
Highly interesting, Doug. Could answer a few things. Not everything perhaps but I like that what you say is closer to something we KNOW to exist Patty was real. Today it is GAME ON to discover a live Sasquatch that photographs well.
Regarding crows, I have heard that Sasquatch habituators say that Saquatches leave gifts. I friend of mine's daughter and grandson feed the crows around their place and the crows leave gifts for them in the place where the food was. They have all kinds of stuff like cloth, flowers, pieces of shiny metal, a little dog figurine and so on.
