Linda Newton-Perry (Bigfoot Ballyhoo), has done a great job, in urging witnesses to share their experiences. Linda writes a weekly, Bigfoot related column, for the Douglas County News. Linda and her Husband, also have written 3 Children's books on Bigfoot, as well as maintain a children's Bigfoot website, Bigfoot Fancy 4 Kids. Through her efforts, she wants to make talking about Bigfoot, commonplace. Let's face it. Most of us know they're out there, but the mainstream find us a bit nuts. Linda is trying to change that.
Many recent sightings reported on Linda's site, have been occurring in western Oregon. Especially in an area just southeast of Coos Bay. One area in particular, Squaw Lake, has garnered much attention. So much so, that the U.S. Forest service has closed it down. Reports have come in, about a more "hostile" acting Bigfoot, that has been encountered around Squaw Lake. This past summer, the visitor information sign at the lake, had been destroyed, and a few steel trash cans were smashed and thrown some 60 plus feet out into the lake. A few sources have corroborated that there are researchers, sent by the USFS to Squaw Lake, investigating that which has been reported in the area.

One of the other hot topics on Bigfoot Ballyhoo, has been the incidents of people reporting sightings to law enforcement agencies. Most sightings occur while people are driving. Some of these people have come forward, to explain how they were treated as lunatics by the authorities, ultimately having their driver's licenses suspended until they can be cleared through a state appointed Psychiatrist/Psychologist. Also, law enforcement officers have reported, being suspended on paid leave until they can clear a psych evaluation, after they too have reported sightings.

It sounds like state authorities are either in total denial, incredibly ignorant, or trying to hide something. Doesn't it?
