Sightings Desk: Owlman of Mawnan Smith

Creature Feature: Bigfoot

Sightings of a large, hairy humanoid creature in the northwestern United States and western Canada date back centuries. Native American tribes in these areas named the creature “Sesquac” which means “Wild or “Hairy Man” in Halkomelem, a language of the indigenous people of British Columbia. That term morphed into “Sasquatch” in Canadian newspapers during the 1920s. 

The name “Bigfoot” was coined by the Humboldt Times in the late fifties after a sighting of large footprints (16 inches in length!) by construction worker Jerry Crew. People believe the creatures stand about 6-9 feet. They’re bipedal and covered in dark hair. About a third of all the sightings of the creature happen in the Pacific Northwest. So California, Oregon, Washington…There have been over a 1000 sightings between 1818 and 1980, alone, according to two researchers. The scientific name for the creature is Homo Sapiens Cognatus.
