Sasquatch/Bigfoot Sighting Outside Of Smithers, British Columbia

Date: Mid 1970's

Message: Hi Brian, Gosh I have been trying to remember the details of a Bigfoot sighting in the Bulkley Valley. Maybe someone from the area will remember this. It was sometime during the mid 70's and just outside of Smithers on Highway 16 towards Moricetown. I was a kid and remembered hearing on the local radio channel (Was it BVLD Radio back then too?) that someone had spotted Bigfoot run across the road in front of them head into the trees towards the Bulkley River.

We lived along the Telkwa Hi-Road on a ranch called Springhill at the time. On the other side of the hi-road was the Bulkley River and beyond that was property and then Highway 16. I remembered being so excited at the prospect that I might have a chance to see this creature that I sat on our log fence in the front yard and watched the field below us (which belonged to the Rosenberg's at the time) the entire day. I kid you not. It was morning when I went to sit on the fence and it was dark when I gave up. I was determined not to miss it. I was convinced that if Bigfoot made it across the river that he was going to run across that field. Boy was I disappointed when he never showed! LOL

I wonder if anyone else can remember that sighting? Thanks a bunch!
