BCSO Members Find Possible Tracks In Snow

Posted by Lee on March 4, 2013 at 2:10 AM

The British Columbia Sasquatch Organization investigates possible Sasquatch tracks found by BCSO member Kerry and her husband on Saturday,February 23rd/2013 , south of Courtenay .

 

The tracks were located in the mud bay area . Exact location will not be disclosed as active research has commenced in this area .

 

The tracks were brought to my attention Saturday evening (feb 23rd-2013) shortly after they were found . Kerry gave me direction to the location to investigate further .

 

I teamed up with fellow BCSO member Cindy (aka Coastalcinder ) on Sunday morning, February 24th/2013 to find and document the tracks .

 

I also wanted to investigate the general area around the alleged tracks for any further evidence .

 

 

Weather details : Cloud cover , raining and breezy with a temperature of + 4 degree's .

 

 

We located the tracks with relative ease thanks to Kerry's great directions !

 

The area had sections of patchy snow and the tracks we investigated were in the snow .These tracks were also in a state of melt .

 

This means they were noticeably melting and lacked any internal definition ( no toe shaping)

 

The biggest plus for me with this track evidence was the way in which the animal walked . One foot directly in front of the other. Sasquatch track evidence documented and collected in the past by many other investigators/researchers have repeatably shown that the Sasquatch walk placing one foot directly in front of the other leaving the trackway in almost a straight line of travel .

 

Secondly the heel to heel stride was greater then that of a human stride ! Cindy and I searched the area thoroughly but came up with nothing else in addition to the tracks .

 

After spending a couple hours on the scene collecting data, we slowly made our way back to the vehicle . As we were driving out approximately 1klm or a little less from where we had parked the vehicle, we hit a straight stretch on the logging road when we noticed a large cougar standing on the road about 350 ft in front of us , it then walked into the tree's on our right hand side and was gone . I'm guessing the cat to be almost 200lbs , it was a huge cougar ! It's not often we get to see these large cats in the wild, so a side from seeing a Sasquatch, a cougar to me is the next best thing here on Vancouver Island !

 

 

The following is the data which was collected and recorded at the scene .

 

 

Average size of tracks : 14.5 " long

 

Average width of tracks @ ball of foot : 6"w

 

Average depth of tracks : 2 -3/4" d

 

Average stride measured heel to heel : 49" s

 

Total tracks found in trackway :7 total

 

 

Thank you to Cindy, Kerry and her husband for your keen eyes and continued observations in the field ! I appreciate all the time and effort you guy and gals put in !

No worries, that's what we're out there to do. :) Going out again to the same area and also two other places we're keen to try. Snow stopping us from doing a lot but we manage to find accessible roads. Also have heard in several circles that Timber West is under fire for gating roads!

I'm not sure what the answer is to Timberwest . In one hand they want to protect there investments and we pay the price with locked gates . Or they leave the gates open and vandalism happens .
I think purchasing a key for a realistic price and as Cindy mentioned to me once .....We go online to a Timberwest site letting them know by posting our name, that we will be in "such and such"area on that paticular day !
This way Timberwest knows who's where and can contact the person if needed .

Also must make mention of my brother, Jon, was also with us and helped Kevin do the measurements.

That is a fantastic idea, since going out there our idea is just to enjoy the wilderness and not bring our tons of garbage out to deposit it like we see wayyyyy back in the mts. Nor are we into burning equipment and stuff. I think that the solution mentioned is a good one. Got nothing to feel guilty about so...why not.
I can see their point, yes, for sure.
