An experienced hiker became fearful for their life after being followed by an unidentified creature in the Cascade Mountains.
Does a large, bipedal creature roam the wilds of Oregon ? One hiker certainly seems to think so.
According to a story recently sent to Lon Strickler's website Phantoms and Monsters
, the unnamed hiker had been walking for six days when things started to take a rather sinister turn.
"That night is when I heard the howling," they wrote.
"It wasn't wolves or bears or any other animal I had ever heard. This persisted for the next few nights. Eventually 'something' started rummaging through my campsite."
"Naturally, I assumed it was a bear or raccoons."
On the 11th night, however, they awoke to find that their food bag had been cut down and removed, leaving them four days away from civilization with no rations.
"On the 13th night something started throwing rocks at my tent," they wrote. "For some reason I lost it, I screamed into the darkness for whatever it was to leave me alone."
"Then a scream louder and more vicious than any other cut through the night. Then nothing, complete and utter silence again."
The following day, they caught sight of the perpetrator for the first time.
"The 'being' was tall and large, bigger than any man or animal I had ever seen, sliding through the forest not making a noise," the hiker wrote. "I yelled at it. It turned to look at me."
Feeling enraged, the exhausted hiker attempted to chase the creature away by running after it, which fortunately seemed to work as it fled from the scene and did not return.
They eventually made it to safety the following day.
"I truly believe that I had an encounter with a Bigfoot," they wrote. "There is really no other explanation. No man could move as stealthy and as swift through the trees."
