Why do we automatically assume this is a sasquatch?
Eerie unidentifiable noises in the woods. Is the logic supposed to be that any unknown sound in the forest must be a sasquatch? If it is, it’s flawed.
We don’t know what it is. No one saw a sasquatch making these sounds so we can’t say they are sasquatch vocalizations. I’d love for them to be, but we have nothing to compare them to.
Sometimes known animals can make vocalizations that are not usually heard. An example is the Chehalis vocalizations that some of us in British Columbia investigated a number of years ago. If you go here:
You will hear scary screams which the person who reported the sounds and recorded them thought might be a sasquatch. They do sound like they come from something powerful. thinking it may possibly have been sasquatch vocals, our team was stunned when one day they came upon the source of the noise making that noise. It was your run-of the-mill coyote. None of us could believe that something we all knew well was capable of making such a sound.
After that experience we played back some of the most famous sasquatch calls in existence and found that the sounds were identical, meaning no sasquatch had created them. It was just a plain old coyote.
My advice when dealing with vocalizations is to proceed with caution when trying to identify them. YNWA.
