Does Bigfoot Kill Dogs?

Protect your dog from Bigfoot

Does Bigfoot befriend dogs?

It has been long held that Bigfoot is not a fan of dogs, but does Bigfoot kill dogs on site? Or are Bigfoot friendly to dogs?

 No small number of accounts point to their aggression towards them and even them killing dogs that get too close.  But is the reputation of Bigfoot being a dog hater really justified or is there more to the story?

Initial reflex would say that it makes sense that Bigfoot would be aggressive to dogs outright because in the wild they would compete with wolves and coyotes or possibly even have their young hunted by wolves.  Then I saw this video and it raised some questions about the idea that Bigfoot outright hates dogs.  Take a look and see what you think.

Why Does One Dog Not React But The Pair Does?

For all intents and purposes, in both encounters, both dogs should have been in danger, but clearly, the solo dog doesn’t react with fear at all.  Clearly, the pair of dogs understand that they are in mortal danger and flee accordingly.  What is the difference then?

Evidence That Bigfoot Kills Dogs

Where does one start with the stories of Bigfoot killing dogs?  There are accounts pretty much as far back as there have been people with dogs encroaching on the wild places.

The Momo of Missouri

Here is one account that illustrates that Bigfoot kills and carries off dogs from more recent years.

The Momo saga began on July 11, 1972. The Harrison family lived in a house along what was then known as Marzolf Hill. On a hot summer day, 8-year-old Terry Harrison and his 5-year-old brother, Wally, were chasing their dog through the woods.

Suddenly, 15-year-old Doris Harrison, who was inside, heard her brothers screaming, ran to the window and saw a creature she described as perhaps 7 feet tall with dark hair covering its face. It held a dead dog under its arm and blood — apparently from the dog — flecked the dark hair of the beast. And, ooh, that smell! (Source)

Man’s 911 Call Reporting A Bigfoot That He Suspects Killed His Dog

Not empirical evidence, but if a 8-9′ creature is prowling the night and your dog winds up dead, it is likely a Bigfoot took it out.  Here is a man’s call to 911 reporting what sounds like a Bigfoot that is prowling his property.

Coon Hound Killed In 1952

Another account of Bigfoot killing dogs comes from a series of events in 1952 in which what appears to have been a Bigfoot killed several animals.

But that wasn’t the first time the Yoakam family had experienced an encounter with the beast. In 1952 one of their children and a friend were hunting, when the same blood curling sound suddenly erupted. Their dog tried to catch the animal, but by the time the boys had reached the spot of the incident, the canine was laying dead with a broken neck. (Source)

The stories continue, all illustrating that Bigfoot has no problem killing dogs that cross their path.  Even in the Missing 411 books, David Paulides points out that many of the people that go missing are in the company of dogs.  Does Bigfoot take intrusion of humans in the companionship of canines as a hostile event?

Evidence Bigfoot Tolerates Dogs

Despite all the tales illustrating that  Bigfoot kills dogs, there are others that show that Bigfoot tolerates or even likes some dogs.

Thom Powell, in his book The Locals recounts the story of Joseph Edwin Leffler who wandered away from the family mobile home near Estacada, Oregon and got lost. A search commenced and even professional trackers were put on the task of finding him.

Harry Oakes, a tracker and dog handler followed the boy’s tracks and determined that a large bigfoot picked up the boy about one mile from the mobile home. The boy was kept warm, fed, and protected until the 939th Air Force Reserve Aerospace Recue and Recovery Group was able to find him. Upon approach, one of two helicopters spotted the boy at night using forward looking infrared. Through the therms, a massive humanoid shape was spotted walking away from the boy and his three dogs.

Upon being questioned, the young boy insisted that a giant monster had fed him salmonberries and looked after him and his dogs until (human) help came.

Expert tracker, Harry Oakes, found ample evidence on the ground to back up the boy’s story. Several search and rescue members also literally saw the bigfoot walking off clearly on their FLIR.

Doing some more research I came across this post on the Bigfoot Forums by Sassfooty with another piece of counter-evidence that Bigfoot hates all dogs.

I don’t understand where this “BF hates all canines” theory came from. Maybe some of them hate all canines, (I’m not too crazy about them myself) but I know for a fact that they don’t all hate all canines. 

I saw one standing out behind the house one night, & he had a pack of coyotes running around him like a pack of hounds around a fox hunter. My son saw one running with a pack of coyotes one night.

A friend that lives a few miles away used to hear a group of BFs come by his house every almost every morning. He said he would stand out & listen to them pass, & several times, there was a chocolate Lab that would be with them. He said it belonged at a house just up the road from him. It would split off from the BFs & pass his house going home, & they would go on in the other direction. 

Then, there was the researcher that whooped out in front of my house, & had a young coyote come running up to him like he was being called to dinner.

So, I think people are presuming a lot when they make that statement. 

There are encounters on both sides of the line with some reports of Bigfoot aggressively attacking and killing dogs, possibly even eating them and other accounts of them being friendly with them or even seemingly being amused by small or funny-looking dogs.   The CryptoCrew goes so far as to postulate that Bigfoot might tame dogs as we do.

Time For Your Input On The Question “Does Bigfoot Kill Dogs?”

With there being disparate accounts of Bigfoot’s reaction to dogs, what do you think is going on?  Why do Bigfoot kill some dogs and not others?  Some people offer up that Bigfoot, like humans have varying personalities and just like us, some Bigfoot are not fans of dogs, but others love them.  Could encounters with friendly or aggressive dogs flavor Bigfoot’s encounters later in life.

I would love to get your input on Bigfoot hating dogs.  Have you witnessed an encounter with Bigfoot and dogs?  Why do you think the reactions are so different?  Post your comment below, and let me know what you think!

  1. I am not an authority of big foot or yeti or sasquatch but I have never heard of any of them killing dogs. Who knows for sure?

  2. Mitch Waite at youtube SUSANFARNS has many many video out of Arizona, he says there are 15 dogs missing from his research area just recently so I would say yes probably so

    1. Charlee, are these disappearances certainly due to Big Foot or is that conjecture? How many dogs, for example, could be expected to disappear in that area and in the time measured for any reasons? Could animal poachers, selling them to labs, be to blame? Are they vanishing in cougar country? Cougars love dogs and one even stalked me! I am not doubting, just wondering.

  3. The most interesting thing about Bigfooot is that this creature RELLY DID exist. There is proof in the fossil record. Fossils were found for Giganopithecus Blacki in Asia and Paranthropus Robustus in Africa. Were they just Prehistoric creatures? Or did they only recently become extinct? That would explain the legends. Or do these creatures still exist? If so, they are likely to live in less populated areas. They would need to have a sufficient breeding population to survive. There are no known primate species who are solitary. If we do find Bigfoot, it will be a very dangerous animal. I remember seeing these shows with teams looking for Bigfoot. They seem really unprepared. If they did find him, I am sure it would not end well. I wrote a story about what might happen. It starts out in a documentary style and ends as a horror story. It is called The Howling in the Hills by Roy Wells. It is free if you have a Kindle and Amazon Prime. I hope you enjoy it.

  4. IN THE 1920s Oregonian Newspaper series, there”s nothing about dogs… however it does say that if screwed with or killed, a Sasquatch Indian, in revenge – and yes they used the word “Indian” – would take the offending Individual by the legs and rip them in half using their immensely powerful chest muscles — something i think Kurt Russel must of had in mind when he did the scene in his movie Bone Tomahawk…. a great movie btw. except i would have made the cave creatures “Stick Indians.,”full-fledged Sasquatch family.. Jim of #TimbergiantBigfoot went of of his way a few times to say theat the surrounding neighborhood often has both signs and radio warnings not to leave your dog or cat out. Btw they still have local radio in Canada. Any< near Jim< and i do know where he lives< rural cats & dogs go missing. because they"re disappearing. Sure there might be a Sasaquatch who keeps a g dog< maybe just like us< a few, but i also think just like we eat farm animals< they will grab a meal wherever its handy… and if that means a qute littlle j kitten< say goodbye. I"ll never forget as a kid the local 85 yr old WW2 refugee Italian woman waving as she walk bye with a warm smile< who one day rocks my wold when she yr old Italian woman walk up and start lopping the heads of her chickens, and as they'd continue to run around, point and laugh, and put her blood hand or when i to my friends and they were castrating cattle.if you're gonna live in live in nature, and you"re gonna eat nature…just the way nature intended it. In fact that"s what the Hopi say, that Bigfoot, once possessed technology, big time technology: red magnetic discs< airplanes & ships… Oh yeah< their humans< just really big humans with hair decided to return to Nature after the Flood< and seeded their people around the world starting with the Americas. They call them the Ogre Kachina… meaning descendants "of OG"; the biblical OG. Og's words weren't filled with tales of eating your dog or cat, NO Og"s word's were about how the great ruler Hated Circumsized males< and Og spoke iopenly about his taste for them! Then the women and their children were all food sources to Og, OG was a great king who didn't eat dogs… Og ate "smaller-self" Humans,' and you're wonder why they won't admit to Bigfoot's existence? Oh< just like people their are some kind Bigfoot a out there Oh you may get lucky… he may tolerate you The reason I believe the Dr HA Miller autopsy notes< if because one of the things that talk about being a necessity< is to incorporate Wilderness areas in the US and Canada; Parks, Conservation Preserves. Places they can pretty muck let the live but keep them out of sight… but they do get seen. And even people like Todd standing who started with one attitude< knows now how easily they'll kill you. Todd doesnt realize he put the intimidation video on the net for everyone to see… including the military.And now somebody is starting to notice the missing. And then he hears of Special Ops team coming in by helicopter. I believe that just like problem bears, the Military keeps them contained and if one crosses the line< he"s immediately taken out. And if these are thinking Human bloodine creatures< only smarter and a bit more animal… think about it, the ultimate predattor, then they"re smart enough to know their existence depends on the ability to have a truce, If you keep losing family members every time they cross the line< sooner of later you get the point. Please don't give me the is nonsense that our Special Ops teams with their personal Armor piercing & detonating weapons, shoulder bazookas and Sub Guns will get it done. Bullet proof skin my ass. And Miller also spoke about it had to be done by the 90s and he wouldn't live to see it… Both are true, but there"s a couple other things in there: He spoke about the bone structure of a Sasquatch being very much like the bone structure of a Howler Monkey… an overlooked note that partially cements it for me. Howler monkeys are louder than jets… Now add 800 lbs and ten ft of giant and you have something witnesses will never, ever forget. Ever heard a little 40lb Howler monkey? The are louder than a jet plane and there's one on Youtube you wont believe.
    So were Todd:s aggressive Sasquatch taken out? You better believe it. Listen to that tape, it's horrifying. Imagine if that was your wife or daughter? Your 5yr old son? … Your old uncle Joe who's aches & pains have helped him to outlive his usefullness? Better you give him a warriors death and let him feed the Klan.? Back to HA Miller… DYK there are thinks in megalithic architecture that will back up everything i say? You better believe it. Round Magnetic Discs?… Check! Airplanes?… Check!! Bigfoot all over the world…Check! I have more… You want a quick couple more? Miller wrote that theey have scent glands… and in of all places… their wrists. You do know the implication of that right? Broken saplings are scent marked. Something we humans have forgotten all about, unless we happen to pee outside or can't hold it. Funny everywhere Jim of TGBF touches a tree in his research area… the end y up broken or tore out. And he still doesn't get it… i wanna crawl thru my keyboard. you have the audacity to scent mark his woods?? Your lucky he doesn't pop your head off like grape…Oh and there are Indian stories of that too and shit down your neck! The DNA analyze that the Bigfoot DNA study-which no one will look at – sats that there guys aren't part Ape< they're part Lemur. People do say they see them make incredible leaps… and think about the Russian video where the Sasquatch dances around flapping it arms… lemur. Sadly No. There was NO… NO… NO there is not. I searched & searched and searched and can find absolutely nothing on a H.A. Miller who received a Doctorate degree from HARVARD: and i searched 1Oyrs EITHER SIDE OF THE DEBATE… there is NOTHING. No one at Harvard University ever got a doctorate at the time in question; that is unfortunately, undeniable. We called, we emailed, and we found nothing. OK, SO ya got it? Can we put this to bed now? NONE. However… there is a an H.A. Miller who graduated with a DOCTORATE DEGREE from YALE UNIVERSITY! YALE! The guy is absolutely real! Anyway< if ya want more< come to my site BRETT ALLEN on Facebook (kinda been away from that one for a while; now i'll have to go back. But you can check me out cause boy do i have more…
    the name is…
