Bigfoot, watcher in woods

Various sightings had been reported as early as 1918 in the Vu Quang Nature Reserve of Vietnam and Malaysia and Borneo.  These reports indicate the biped is four to five feet tall, very hairy with stout shoulders supporting a leathery neck, and a protruding stomach.  The females are distinguished by long pendulous breasts.  The cryptids are reported to have a language of unintelligible words.

In 1947, a French colonist reported a sighting and refers to the animal as a L’Homme Sauvage (a Wild Man).

Dr. John MacKinnon claimed to have found the first tracks in 1970, and he believed they were of a hominid origin.  He published his findings in a book in 1978 titled “In Search Of the Red Ape”.  His findings were co berated in 1984 by Tran Hong Viet a professor of Pedagogic University of Hanoi.  He reported finding and casting similar footprints in 1982 to those of MacKinnon’s photographed footprints.

Sightings were also reported in Vietnam during the war by Kregg P. J. Jorgenson in his book “Very Crazy G.I.-Strange But True Stories of the /Vietnam War” published in 2001 by Ballentine Book.  The soldiers called them Rock Apes and stated they were approximately five feet tall with a reddish tinge to the brown fur.

In 1971 two Batututs were claimed to have been captured by local tribesmen in the Dak Lak Province which was followed by Hoang Minh Thau, a North Vietnamese General to attempt an expedition to search for evidence of the bipeds in 1974.

  1. Sitting on an aircraft carrier during Nam, I never got to
    see the Rock Apes. We did have a flying fish land on the hanger deck one day. The water was pretty rough
    that day. We were going down when he was going up.

    • Did you ever hear stories of them while you were over there?

      • No, I’m sorry to say. The subject of bigfoot
        was brought up from time to time. Usually
        when the beer was flowing. When guys are far home and not sure if you are going
        to see home again, you tend to talk about
        a lot of things.

  2. I heard an account of a woman ,when she was a child, of seeing a man with two animals that looked like hairy men. They were wearing collars on their necks with chains attached and some pieces of clothing(?). She saw them at a small street cafe and the man purchsed some food for the animals to eat. The woman said that the animals used spoons to some extent to eat their food. She never saw or heard of this man or animals again and always wondered what she really saw. Has anyone else ever heard of this account? It was in one of the countries such as Laos or Viet Nam.
