The Urban Sasquatch Journal: What is Urban Sasquatch?


Episode 1

This is the first of a running series on Ghost Hunting Theories chronicling a present-day Sasquatch experiment utilizing techniques employed by the researcher over a decade ago in a completely different location at an habituation site. 

Today, the researcher's ongoing study is being performed in an urban setting in the southern half of the US, hundreds of miles from the original site and the results are amazingly similar. During the series, I will be sharing the evolution of these experiments and their results from his journal.



What is an urban setting? 



This means that there is public access, public businesses, public parks within a city proper that are being traversed and inhabited by Sasquatch. Sometimes, these urban settings are sort of "Sasquatch Islands" where they utilize roadways, storm drains, power line roads, railroads, and other sources to move back and forth between bodies of protected lands.  



Many urban Sasquatch situations are on wildlife areas and hiking parks adjacent to businesses and residential areas. These are often civilization-locked large acreages of protected land.


(Example, not the true location)


There is no need to fear such interactions because the very same stealthiness utilized to remain in forests filled with campgrounds and hikers, are utilized in urban settings. They no more want to get caught than they ever have and, in fact, they have to assess the risk/reward ratio carefully before acting. 

Once a regular source is developed, however, they can sometimes become more emboldened and even annoyed if a source dries up. This same thing occurs in habituation sites where owners quit feeding them. Like anyone else, they are thankful for easy resources and get quite comfortable and annoyed when they cannot utilize that location any longer. Other than some tantrums, some tossing of items, there is no reason to believe that they become in any way aggressive. Once again, their primary directive is, above all else, not to be seen or caught. 



Ways They Utilize Urban Features

Rest stops:  Remote rest stops have been known to be targeted by some Sasquatch for the purpose of utilizing the trash to attract smaller animals. The bones of such small animal prey can be found around the periphery of rest stops in isolated locations. 

Dumpsters:  Dumpsters facing woodlands are easy targets for "stuff," whether it's useful cups and buckets, or food. It's a rather irresistible dive.

Storm drains, under bridges:  Recesses under bridges, tucked in and protected have been utilized in mostly remote suspension bridges. As well, storm drains have been used to get from one wooded area to another without the need to risk being seen on roadways.

Stockpiles:  Within the woods, you can find a stockpile of "junk" or "trash" in one area. This is a stockpile of sorts. Whether this is kept in one area to utilize the goods when necessary or a way of cloistering off "human trash" from their domain is hard to tell, but that is often a sign of activity in the area. It is under our consideration as a group of researchers that these piles are dumps of human trash in order to attract and ambush smaller forest animals for food source. They are lures. They can't use the trash cans left in parks because they are located where people walk, but they can take that waste into the forest and make an irresistible foraging pile. 

Golf courses/cemeteries: There are sightings in populated areas often in parks on the periphery of a large metropolitan area, as well as greenbelts. You might find outside of cities like Seattle, Dallas, Louisville and others, a ring of county parks that offer a combination of quiet woodlands and distance commuters hoping to live further from the fray. This combination leads to sightings on golf courses and cemeteries. Why those locations? Because of all the human sites, these two are least likely to be lit at night or occupied by humans but also to be intersecting a stretch of promising woodland. If they are going to do their traversing at night, these are their sites to be out in the open at less risk. 

Dependence on our waste:  The true concern for an Urban Sasquatch is the dependence on our waste. Once they are brave enough to come in closer and realize this is where the good stuff is tossed, the more the situation echoes the trouble with bears in parks. This is not to say they would get aggressive like bears, but their very dependence on our cast-offs is concerning when it comes to issues of spreading our diseases to them and making them risk more for easy food. 

It's been difficult for people to accept the concept of Sasquatch existence in the great wilds, but convincing them that these commandos of the forests can get closer to homes and businesses than thought, can be downright unsettling. What you will see in this series will relieve your mind that, even in the case of a researcher repeatedly interacting, they still do not wish to show themselves in these urban settings and remain with the same skill set and survival capabilities as their more rural clans.

  1. Good one, look forward to more. Many are finding the same sorts of evidence.

    1. Agree. However, I would add golf courses and cemeteries are good open grassed places for deer to feed at night. It would seem cemeteries would offer prefect cover for ambush via the granite headstones.
