Bigfoot Recording from the Umatilla Indian Reservation

Are Foxes, Coyotes or Bigfoot Screaming in the Night Near Pendleton?

Are Bigfoot hiding in the swamps of the Umatilla Indian Reservation?

The Oregonian’s online site Oregon Live published a report on Jan 21, 2013 that residents of the Umatilla Indian Reservation near Pendleton, OR have been hearing bone chilling screams coming from the wetlands and wilds of the reservation.

Located on the edge of the Blue Mountains, the reservation encompasses 178,000 of land, much of which is very wild and filled with wetlands.  Are Bigfoot using it as a place to hide?  Something is out there because since November, residents in the area have been hearing everything from high pitched screams in the night to bellowing roars.  What makes those sorts of noises in the PNW forests?

Marcus Luke, a housing authority home-ownership counselor has been receiving reports from people living in the reservation’s the reservation’s 190 rentals and 32 homes. He notes that most of the people living there “are woodsy-type folks,” familiar with animals and not prone to taking fright at nighttime commotion.”

The sounds are bad enough that even dogs don’t want to go outside! 

Colleen Chance, a tribal housing authority employee, recorded some of the howls on her iPhone.

“It’s kind of spooky,” she said. “Some say it’s foxes, some say it’s a female coyote and some say it’s Sasquatch. I don’t know what it is.”  While the recordings aren’t the best, they don’t sound like any normal animal I know of.

Another man reported that the screams are terrifying that even his dogs don’t want to go outside at night.  Take a listen to Colleen’s Bigfoot recordings and decide for yourself what is screaming in the night out in the swamps of the Umatilla Reservation!
