Rumors that Bigfoot is lurking near the Umatilla Indian Reservation in Oregon is creating quite a stir on the remote Indian Reservation near Pendleton.
Oregon Live reports that people living in a tribal housing unit near a swamp on the reservation have been waking up to hear cries, screams, roars and other eerie sounds that many think are the legendary Bigfoot.
A tribal housing authority employee went so far as to record the sounds on her iPhone.
She tells Oregon Live that some people think it might be a female coyote but others think that it could be Sasquatch, the name given to a massive, ape-like creature that a number of people think lives in forests in the Pacific Northwest.
“It’s kind of spooky … 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.” – Colleen Chance
The reservation that Bigfoot is rumored to be wandering through is home to approximately 1,5000 people. Spread out over 178,000 acres, residents think he has been near the swamp that is in a canyon north of the Wildhorse Resort and Casino.
Chance states that dozens of phone calls about the screams and roars have been received at the reservation’s housing authority over the past month.
