multiple Bigfoot generations living in Whitehall, NY
Multiple Bigfoot generations have been living in Whitehall, NY for at least 300 years, as proved by both historical and recent Bigfoot sightings in NY. The Whitehall Bigfoot was recently investigated by an organization of Bigfoot field researchers from the USA and Canada, whose acronym is the BFRO. The BFRO goes on annual field expeditions, in search of Bigfoot, which is sometimes referred to as Sasquatch. The members recently conducted interviews with witnesses, in the area of Whitehall, New York, in addition to visiting in person, the areas known for Sasquatch activity.
When some hear "New York" mentioned, most think of a city, a metropolis where no trees can be seen, except in Central Park. However in the upper state of New York, among the hills of the Adirondacks, there are few houses and few people to be seen. A lonely ribbon of highway pierces the Adirondack forest. There is no street to walk on. The only travelers are riding in automobiles, and if one is unlucky enough to be walking, the passing cars would be few.
The sparsely populated village of Whitehall, is one of the few inhabited towns in the wilderness of upstate. The Bigfoot field expedition arrived in town in September of 2005. The researchers of the BFRO interviewed an eyewitness, whose name was Henry. Since childhood Henry had worked on the family farm... a christmas tree farm. Thoughout his thirty years, he had occasionally seen footprints, in the oldest section of the farm, the farthest part of the family's property, that area nearest to the edge of the woods. There stood the taller, older pine trees, used for grafting.
The footprints occured only rarely but they were always large... twenty inches, the one time that Henry measured. The footprints were always accompanied by broken branches, as if disturbed by something passing. The partly severed branches would swing in the wind, as high overhead as ten feet, marking a trail leading into the forest. But that way lay only the mountains, uninhabited by men.
A young couple in the year 2000, were hiking on the trail to Buck Mountain. The peak of the mountain can be seen from Whitehall. John and his girlfriend left the trail to explore the forest, and they came to running water. The young woman was a model, and she wanted some photographs of herself outdoors, for her portfolio. Before the young man could remove the lens cap from his camera, they heard a deep roaring sound, like that of a large mammal. John was a backpacker, familiar with all kinds of animal noises. This cry he had never before heard, sounding like a combination of a growl, and a scream. He was scared.
He guided his girlfriend back toward the trail. The blood-curdling scream was repeated, and getting closer. Then they heard rapid footfalls nearby, crunching through the dry, dead leaves, covering the ground. Suddenly John realized, it was trying to circle them. When they reached the trail, they began to run, in the direction of the trailhead. This was the longest fifteen minutes of their lives, because although the creature no longer cried out, they could hear it following them, just out of sight, in the woods on their left side, until they reached their automobile, locking themselves inside.
Human encounters with a colony of Sasquatch in Whitehall, began as early as 1759. In the same area, English colonies were at war with French colonies. The British military detachment of Rogers' Rangers, and their American Indian allies, both reported confrontations with Sasquatch. On one march in the wilderness, the Rangers were pelted with rocks and stones, by large hairy primates, to which they gave a name... mountain apes. The mountain apes were driven away by the soldiers, with a single volley of musket fire.
Iroquois Indians, loyal to the English, related tribal accounts perhaps old as millenia. They describe a creature which guards its own land, a creature which tosses large pinecones at trespassers. Its Iroquois name is the slippery thing, because it is smart enough to avoid the traps of men.
A local researcher, Paul Bartholomew, has proposed to the town board of Whitehall, a resolution making it illegal to hunt or shoot Sasquatch. Paul hopes to build a museum in the village, and looks forward to establishing the first annual Bigfoot festival, in the rural New York region of upstate.
