Amongst encounters with the furry hominids often called Sasquatch or Bigfoot, there have at occasions been some fairly weird conduct that has proven up within the stories, and one among these is their obvious propensity for often throwing rocks and even boulders. Rock throwing in Bigfoot isn’t notably widespread, but it surely options in a variety of stories and is taken into account a longtime unexplained Bigfoot conduct together with the likes of wooden knocking, wherein sticks or logs are banged in opposition to timber, what is known as rock clacking, wherein rocks are smashed collectively to create noise, and cryptic stone piles which can be generally stumbled throughout within the wilderness and are attributed to the creatures, probably for the aim of marking territory. In rock throwing circumstances the rocks thrown can vary from mere pebbles, to softball sized, all the best way as much as bigger boulders a lot too heavy for a human being to even handle to maneuver, a lot much less toss, and regardless of the dimensions of the rocks thrown it’s at all times a sobering, horrifying expertise. It’s unknown why these mysterious creatures may wish to throw rocks, however there are actually a variety of stories describing this. Let’s take a look at just a few examples.
One report from the positioning The Crypto Crew issues a witness solely often called “William,” who was allegedly out searching along with his brother-in-law, JT. On the time they had been excited as a result of that they had acquired permission to hunt for deer on a tract of prime non-public land that that they had by no means hunted earlier than, so on the time they had been scouting the realm in search of good spots. They had been circling the sting of the woods alongside a big cornfield after they received the distinct sense that they had been being watched and adopted, though neither of them may put their finger on what it was, only a kind of eerie certainty that somebody or one thing was on the market with them. They tried to disregard it and write it off as nerves, however as they headed again in direction of their truck a weird sequence of occasions would play out. The witness says of this:
As we had been going to our truck, we needed to cross this slim pathway with excessive sides on our left & proper. After occupied with it, it was the proper ambush web site. Once we received slightly into this pathway, we may hear growling coming from the excessive floor above us on each side. Then a big rock in regards to the dimension of a regular cinder block got here crashing in behind us. We stopped, frozen in disbelief. JT requested me if I heard that, which I gave him the sure sign. Right now we nonetheless had our face masks on so we promptly took them off. That is when there was one other growl, solely this one was far more threatening. We left with out pause and by no means did return to that farm. I informed the farm proprietor about our expertise & he affirmed that there had been unusual issues happening there since he was a small baby. He informed me of a Bigfoot sighting that his household had encountered solely a pair months previous to our occasion.
No matter was on the market certain didn’t appear to love firm. One other report comes from the information of the Bigfoot Discipline Researchers Group (BFRO), from the summer time of 2014 in Kalkaska County, Michigan. The witness had been staying at a distant cabin along with his household, and he made preparations for the journey again residence along with his grown son after the others had already left. The cabin is described as mendacity amongst tall pines, blended hardwood forests, marsh and swampland. Earlier than leaving, he at all times hosed the cabin down with bleach to wash it off, and as he did this his unusual story would start. He says that his cabin had been hit earlier than by mysterious rocks, however this time was very intense. He explains of the harrowing sequence of occasions:
It was getting late within the day, there was a couple of half hour to 45 minutes of daylight left, after I heard what seemed like a stone or one thing hitting a fallen over shed that was to my left & behind me about 10 to fifteen toes away. That caught my consideration straight away as a result of I had thought simply earlier than that one thing or someone could also be messing with me as a result of as I’d flip to my left to achieve right down to pump extra stress within the pump sprayer I seen a small stone in regards to the dimension of a nickel slowly come to relaxation a few toes from my pump sprayer. I took an extended regular go searching me & noticed nothing that stood out, however I used to be on a mission – I wished to get the cabin bleached so I may depart for residence. I then began the generator to get the water stress up so I can rinse off the bleach. I grabbed the hose & began rinsing. The hair on the again of my neck stood up. I’d usually flip & look actual fast behind me after which I seen the ferns parting, coming in my course however in a roundabout way at me & a stone got here to relaxation. I believed possibly my son could be messing with me as a result of I’ve informed him about a number of unusual issues which have occurred up right here. So I yelled for him to knock it off. Then it occurred once more, one other stone & one other. I went round to the entrance of the cabin to close off the generator which is on the entrance porch.
I seen my son was sitting in my truck about 30 toes away from the alternative facet of the cabin the place I used to be rinsing the bleach off, messing along with his i-phone with the window up. I shut off the generator & was strolling in direction of the truck as a stone hit & rolled off the entrance porch. I rushed to the truck to get him to get within the cabin. He thought I used to be joking at first. Then he seen I used to be severe then he skilled it himself. We received within the cabin, it was final gentle, I may nonetheless see out the home windows and stones had been nonetheless being tossed & now they had been hitting the cabin however not hitting the home windows. As I sat on the dinning room desk I seen one thing massive & darkish transfer quick from the opposite facet of my driveway to behind my truck. I grabbed my 44 magazine, reached in my pocket and sounded the truck alarm to scare it off. By then it was actual darkish out so I closed the drapes. My son went to his bed room and his bed room wall was hit. The cabin was at occasions being hit by stones on at the very least 3 sides inside seconds of one another. There needed to be at the very least 3 throwing stones. My son was terrified. My son counted at the very least 19 stones hitting the cabin, it’s not unusual to have my partitions or door hit very arduous & I imply whopped arduous after darkish, it’s going to shake the log cabin & it scares the HELL out of anybody there.
A follow-up investigation by BFRO discipline researcher Kim Fleming would flip up extra particulars. The creature that lurked across the cabin was supposedly 6 toes to 7 toes tall and about 400 to 500 kilos, strolling on two toes and coated with black or very darkish brown hair. She additionally discovered that this kind of menacing exercise had been taking place on the cabin because it was first being constructed. She says:
The witness additionally reported intimidating exercise whereas constructing the cabin. He was in a trailer on the property, alone, when “one thing slapped the trailer simply above the door.” He may hear “one thing strolling exterior…on 2 toes… and it dragged a stick or one thing alongside the surface of the trailer” whereas strolling round it. Scrape marks had been discovered the following morning together with a “large hand print” left within the moss simply above the door. A big stick was additionally discovered mendacity on the tongue of the trailer. Moss had grown on a lot of the trailer over time. I met with a neighbor just a few weeks after this incident who verified the hand print within the moss above the door of the trailer and a second time, above the door of the cabin. Marks left by what they believed to be a department that was scraped alongside the surface of the trailer. This occurred whereas the witness was within the strategy of constructing the cabin. The witness had requested him to come back over and see what occurred to the trailer. The neighbor said, “I do not consider in bigfoots, but when there was such a factor, that hand print is the type of print it will have.” He described it as “enormous!” The witness additionally reported a sighting by a good friend whereas searching on the property. That good friend has by no means returned to hunt on the property since his expertise.
From Reddit consumer “SteelwoolWombat” there comes one other intriguing account, from the state of Pennsylvania. On December 3, 2013, he was out attempting to find deer on the daybreak at Pennsylvania State Recreation Lands 229, exterior of Tremont in Schuylkill County, in search of a great place to arrange his stand. As he hiked alongside, he turned conscious of a fetid stench within the air that smelled like “scorching dumpster juice in the midst of August,” He couldn’t work out the place the odor was coming from, however determined to only ignore it and hold going. As he approached a ridge the fireworks would start, of which he says:
I adopted the trail to my spot, which was down over the ridge from the rubbish odor. Roughly possibly 40 toes down, that leads right into a grass discipline the place I’d sit. I arrange my seat, get settled in for about 2 minutes. That is when the rocks began coming down the ridge. First rock, startled me, inflicting me to activate my gentle once more, scanning the sector hoping to see eye reflection of a deer however nothing was there. I sat again down. One other rock comes down the ridge. This time I rise up exit into the grass discipline with flashlight and the pistol that I carry whereas searching. Scanned once more, nothing, purposely waited within the discipline for about 5 minutes. Now I am getting offended, assuming one other hunter is messing with me as a result of I am in “their” spot. I sit down once more. The third rock, sounding bigger than the others, comes tumbling down the ridge. I do not rise up this time. Not 2 minutes after that, one other rock, not tumbled however sounded as if it was thrown off the ridge and landed within the discipline. Now fuck it, I am pissed. I gathered up my gear, and began again up the path to the ridge. I get on high of the ridge, scanning with my gentle the entire time, nothing, no eyes, no different hunter. I get to the spot the place I smelled the recent rubbish. Nothing. The odor is gone. Lastly, it clicked in my head. It could not have even been one other particular person. Presumably one thing else. I’ve heard different tales of individuals’s Bigfoot experiences, a number of which comment about how dangerous they odor. I all however ran out of the woods. And to high all of it off, no different autos had been within the parking space after I received out of the woods.
One other report comes from Reddit consumer “Micky-n-Mallory,” in Kentucky. Apparently on the time he was climbing out within the woods in search of herbs when he was assailed by a bathe of small stones. He says of the encounter:
I ended to go looking the bottom and noticed a small stone roll previous me. I lookup and noticed one other land about 6 toes from me. At 1st I am pondering nothing of it however was simply curious to determine what was happening. I transfer on uphill about 100 toes and once more small stone lands beside me. I begin trying round once more after which unexpectedly it was simply raining down small stones throughout me. By small I imply actually small like pebbles virtually. The hair on my neck stands up and I get a horrible “I am in peril” type of feeling. I instantly begin heading down off mountain whereas a great deal of little rocks are falling round me . I saved pondering I noticed shadows or one thing transferring shortly between the timber however by no means truly noticed no matter it was. I’ve so as to add that I used to be alone non-public property and nobody round for miles and miles. It is a very, very secluded space and not one of the rocks truly hit me.
An much more harrowing report comes from an unidentified witness on Reddit who says that his complete household was assailed by rock-throwing Bigfoot at Provo Canyon, in Utah. He was out climbing along with his household in an space the place there have been no different individuals round, so it stunned them after they heard a cacophony of noise out within the surrounding wilderness. The witness says of what occurred subsequent:
As we had been climbing I immediately heard a ton of noise to my left. I could not see something so I informed my brother to cease and pay attention. Once we did, we heard what seemed like a rock being thrown at us from our proper. I seemed over and noticed one other rock falling and touchdown simply off the path. My dad came visiting and he witnessed yet one more rock being thrown and hitting a tree then falling. At this level I pulled out my telephone and began recording a fast 50 second video of what was taking place. Notice these had been very clearly being thrown at us. One other focal point is that I may hear motion throughout us whereas this was taking place. We received fairly spooked and received out of there fast. We returned the following day and seen TONS of “X” formations across the path the place it occurred the day earlier.
An odd element to this specific report is that each the witness and his brother would report having felt inexplicably chilly in the course of the encounter. In one other account from Reddit consumer “bayoubenga1” we’ve got yet one more horrifying account. The witness was out in Ponca, Arkansas, climbing alongside the Goat Path to Large Bluff Trailhead along with his father and a bunch of others, and on the time of the incident the solar was taking place and the day was drawing to an in depth. He says of what occurred subsequent:
I used to be rotated speaking to my father when out the nook of my eye got here flying a softball dimension rock that landed about 10 toes from us. The thump of it hitting the bottom is what actually made it surreal. “Did you throw that?” stated Dad. “No” I replied. No matter it was now had my consideration. We knelt down in the dead of night, all head lamps off and commenced to consider what we had been going to do. We determined to pack up and hike out. As we had been packing all of us appeared to pause for a second, it was right now a deep respiration turned audible. “Hold packing.” I stated. We then started our hour and a half hike again to the truck. It was at this second that I spotted the terrible odor I had seen on the best way in had now moved. It was a putrid odor, one like I had by no means actually skilled.
On some events there are individuals who have reported aggressive rock throwing conduct from Bigfoot whereas they had been of their autos. From the positioning LaptrinhX we’ve got a report from a witness known as “Phil,” who had his encounter at Inyo, California, close to the city of Bishop in 2014. The witness was driving alongside a spot known as White Mountain Highway and determined to cease and spend the night in his automotive, one thing which he apparently does usually out within the wilderness. He says of what occurred subsequent:
I used to be kind of dozing when there was a loud THUNK as one thing hit the automotive. I jerked totally awake and seemed out. It was a very vibrant moonlit evening and I used to be sitting in a white automotive on a turnout above the tree line. So the automobile would have been clearly seen from any distance. I ran by way of a listing of what may have hit the automotive. I believed that possibly somebody had taken a pot shot with a firearm, or thrown a rock, or maybe some small fragment of area junk had made all of it the best way to my automotive from the far reaches of outer area. I locked the doorways and I did not get out of the automotive and sat hunched down peering out ready for the following missile, and searching on the skylines for motion. Nothing.
I lastly discounted a bullet as a result of I figured that may have punctured the automotive and ricocheted round a bit and thought it sounded extra like a stone, as when a stone thrown up by a truck hits your automotive. I could not see anyone and no extra stones got here my manner. In the long run I believed one thing should have fallen out of the sky, till I just lately noticed a video on Yowie investigators (extra like Yowie baiters) in Australia who listed small stone throwing as particular Yowie conduct. Wanting again, I vividly keep in mind how loud the sound was when the stone hit and it jerked me into full consciousness, after which every thing remained eerily quiet. At first gentle I exited the automotive and had a search for any marks or puncture marks on the automotive, however could not see any. Corvette our bodies are comprised of fiberglass about 5mm thick so that they by no means dent and it’s important to actually whack them to trigger any kind of harm. Whereas I wasn’t flustered on the time, I am now creeped out on the considered some Sasquatch peering at me whereas I sleep in my automotive.
When circumstances like this and lots of others like them, it’s arduous to determine why these enigmatic and elusive creatures may wish to do that. It appears as if they aren’t truly earnestly making an attempt to hit the goal, so is it attainable that it’s merely a risk or bluffing gesture meant to scare away intruders? Is it simply out of curiosity, making an attempt to gauge the particular person’s response? Is it possibly even an try at some rudimentary type of communication? Or is it a gesture of outright aggression? It could rely upon the state of affairs and the dimensions of the stones, or boulders because the case could also be, and possibly it’s all a mixture of all the above. The actual fact is, in the meanwhile we merely do not know, and it’s simply one other piece of the general Bigfoot thriller.
