The events happened in the PNW to a logger's family who were "terrorized" by a sasquatch.
I'm thinking it was in the 1950's... maybe?
The encounter I read was told third hand- the logger's boss' son retold the tale.
I believe the Sasquatch destroyed the inside of the family's home.
This retelling by a third party was lengthy and told with great detail.

This is the best of my recollection, though it may not be exact.

Anyway, does anyone else remember this story?
I've tried locating it myself including Bigfootencounters, but no luck so far,
without an exact location or a name

No, this was not a movie.

Thanks for any help.

That story has a familiar ring to it but I'm at a loss to find anything as yet on it.

Was this something that may have appeared on a show like "In Search Of"?  Rings for me too.

It could have, but that is not where I saw it. I read it in a bigfoot forum a few years back (8 years ago maybe).

I think there is one surviving family member (no, BF did not kill any of them), a son, who moved to the southwest?

Great stories! But none of those. This was a white family. And only happened to them at their home...father, mother, at least one son...
Again... I think.

Nope, not the incident I'm looking for, but possibly the inspiration for the family's "encounter". :whistle:

Hey, if it's not the story it's not the story :P  .
I remember it as being a pretty good one though, that is why I'd like to read it again.

No, I think in the one I am thinking of the creature harassed the family, actually entering their home, over a period of time. And the story is very detailed about their encounters.
Thanks, though!

I have entered wording every way I can  think of to search and can't believe it doesn't come up.
I know I will probably have to got through the PNW reports at bfro one at a time, but didn't feel like it.

Sorry QC, always gets a touch confusing when you get it from  logger`s boss` son`s, especially when they got it from the grans  cousins uncles dachshund. :whistle:
