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).
Time is a good healer..;)
So as per the original post here, the Olympic Peninsula has since had 6 reports in total publicly, with 2 being Class A's, in the Olympics.
We must bear in mind that these are just public reports however, there are much, much more that aren't public and therefore not added to any databases unfortunately, and as we all know and for whatever reason, there are lots of reports within the back end of that BFRO database that haven't been added publicly yet which would boost numbers even more.
Just my quick take, reddit kind of took over the role of old school usenet and BBS up to like '95 with this pseudo-iffy vibe with everything posted.
Though interesting, it's a fake. West Virginny is wild and weird as we know BUT, it contains every element of a paranormal tale like markers. Temperature/weather changes, unexplained sounds.... This one is too clear and well-written. Looks like someone is practicing their writing, not a real event.
If you have time get out into the BWCA. It’s a beautiful place and is the most wild place in the Midwest. If Sasquatch exist and exist in MN that’s the most likely place for them to be. It’s also where I had my only strange encounter.
