Report # 38519  (Class A) Submitted by witness on Friday, December 28, 2012.

While riding an ATV a tall biped is seen eating leaves from a tree on a farm near Richmond


YEAR: 2012


MONTH: October

STATE: Missouri

COUNTY: Ray County

LOCATION DETAILS: In Richmond Missouri, at a little farm.


OBSERVED: We have a farm with 100 acres, and it is thickly timbered, with lots of wildlife. We do regular ”squatch” investigations also. We were doing one in late September to October. The early evening with the sun shining through the trees, and when my daughter turned the corner on our gator, as she looked ahead, there was a tall black figure picking leaves off of the tree. The sun was on the opposite side of the figure where you could see the tips/chunks of hair all over it. As we were leaving, we heard four huge howls that could not have been a coyote. We left immediately after this. A few weeks after this encounter in the morning we were just about to head back to the house and were finishing up with some wood-knocks, and rock-clacks. We did one last call, when all of a sudden a rock was thrown at our Polaris. We also got a picture of the animal. It was a very frightening experience and we immediately left and didn’t return for a few weeks! Thank you so much for your time!! We would love for you to come to the squatchy Missouri.

ALSO NOTICED: Nothing else…!(:

OTHER WITNESSES: There was three of us. We were in the Gator prior to it.

OTHER STORIES: We have also found footprints on our land.

TIME AND CONDITIONS: In the evening, the sun was peaking through the trees, and was very bright out still.

ENVIRONMENT: In the forest, the creature was on the tree line.

A & G References: 11-0

Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Carter Buschardt:

Spoke with the mother, the children ages 13 and 10 were present and answered my questions with their mother present. Mother was there but did not actually see the bigfoot. Daughter and brother were out riding around on an ATV and had pulled up at a clearing. Daughter saw a creature 7 – 7 1/2 feet tall, reaching up over its head, pulling branches down with its hands and removing the leaves with its mouth, eating them. Coloring was black, or very dark. It was late afternoon and the sun was bright, but lowering in the sky. The creature was backlit, and was seen clearly. Hair was 2-3 inches in length, shiny and not matted. Distance from her to the creature was 30-40 yards. Weight not estimated by witness but the build was quite stocky. Frame of reference for height and build was her dad, who is 6 ft and of a slight, stocky build. Creature was considerably taller and much heavier. When she saw the creature she took a photo with her cell phone, she turned the ATV around and left with her brother behind her on the ATV, with his arms around her waist. She did not tell him what she saw at the time. She just wanted to leave at that point and remove she and her brother from the area. This is the low-quality photo she took with her cell phone:

Due to the low quality its hard to tell what she may have captured in this photo.
They discussed it later on and her brother only caught a glimpse of it for a couple seconds as they drove away. He asked what he had seen. Mom stated her daughter was bright and articulate, and aware of the various forms of wildlife on the farm. She was very clear as to what she saw, and mom could tell from her daughters agitated state that an “event” had occurred.
About 5 minutes later is when they heard the four howls, not high pitched but more like what is on the show. The howls came from the “opposite side of the field” from where the sighting occurred, though she cannot be positive. She just felt as though they were from the same “general” area, but not the exact site of the sighting.
As for the rock throwing a few weeks later, it was the same area as the sighting. Rock was large, half the size of a bowling ball, if she were to guess.
I live in the area, and there would be ample food source for creatures of this type. Mostly hickory, oak, honey locust and evergreen trees are around the farm. They can’t say exactly what tree it was pulling leaves from.
This is a 100 acre farm with no hunting allowed except occasionally by the husband. They do not currently live on the farm. They live in another town north of here and go to the farm on weekends as time allows, to play and work on the home. The fact that the farm is “vacant” most of the time and no hunting allowed would be a good haven for Sasquatch. In the last few months there have been several reports coming in from within 10-15 miles as the crow flies from this location. There are large creeks, rivers, heavy to light woods, hills and a few caves in the area.

stuffed-animalEditors Notes > This latest video from the vaults of MK Davis is a novel idea to place a camera into a stuffed animal. This was done when cameras were much bigger and heavier. Using today’s technology and wireless HD pinhole cameras you can get the camera and transmitter around the size of a cigarette lighter including power supply to transmit 1000 feet to a DVD recorder. Some of these cameras are IR and or 0 Lux. So if you have the cash and some woodworking skills you might just find yourself a small stump of a tree and  embed one of these pinhole camera systems in it and try your luck in your research area.

BTW at the 1:22 mark I think what falls in front of the camera is the stuffed animals hind quarters and tail.

possible eyeshine

Editors Notes > What we need here is a light source technician because I see three distinct single light sources popping out from three separate trees and all directly behind they other. Could it be just flashlights who knows maybe after they get the raw footage we will know more.

We got this video sent to us of some weird eye shine that is said to be possible bigfoot eye shine. We are working with the person to obtain the raw video file.

findingEditors Notes > I watched this video and was amazed how much this kid sounded like our Finding Bigfoot TV Team when they are in the woods checking out evidence of bigfoot in the area. Not only the Finding Bigfoot crew but countless other Youtube bigfoot researchers are constantly making much more to do with so called evidence of the biguys. So remember my friends The biggest audience out there are our children so teach them well ! This kid has been watching us very closely…LOL

FrodoEditors Notes > I found this light hearted video  this morning and though it’s just just for fun it did take me away from the craziness of of what’s happening daily in some corners of the bigfoot community. These kids I say did a great job in that respect. The music alone does it for me. Watch and let me know if you feel the same.

sasquatch 4Bigfooting is a road that necessitates a wide knowledge base.  Though I often work alone, I also lean heavily on the experiences and expertise of others.  I  am fortunate to have a very tight inner circle of colleagues that I consult with on a variety of matters.  One of these inner-circle colleagues has done an excellent analysis of the Umatilla Calls that were featured so heavily in the media recently.  This colleague is a biologist who chooses to remain anonymous at this time.  I will respect this wish.

yeti 3Americans are more likely than Canadians to think that Bigfoot is real, while Scots more commonly believe in the Loch Ness monster than English people, a new survey finds.

According to the new Angus Reid Public Opinion poll, nearly three-in-ten Americans (29 percent) and one-in-five Canadians (21 percent) think Bigfoot is “definitely” or “probably” real. This legendary humanoid creature, also known as the Abominable Snowman, Yeti or sasquatch, is said to roam remote forested areas.
In Canada, Albertans are the biggest Bigfoot believers, while in United States, people in the West (where most sightings occur) reported the highest rates of belief. [Russians Claim ‘Indisputable Proof’ of Yeti ]
Across the pond in Great Britain, there was a similar national divide on matters of mythical beasts. Only 17 percent of English people believe the Loch Ness Monster is “definitely” or “probably” real, a proportion that jumps to 24 percent in Scotland.
