Mo. — A researcher believes he has recorded the screams of ‘Sasquatch’ in the southwestern Missouri part of the Ozark mountains.
Randy Savig, a disabled 50-year-old that has been investigating the Bigfoot phenomenon for over three years, says the audio recorder captured the alleged screams at 10.30 p.m. in an area known as Pine Ridge.
“For the most part I do audio work,” he told Cryptozoology News. “This was the first time I have been able to catch this close enough for it to be fairly clear,” he added.
The audio file, which lasts close to three minutes, was reportedly recorded with a parabolic microphone and it represents a series of unidentified howls interrupted by dog barks and a train whistle. As soon as the train sounds subside, the howls resume.
“We were at camp about a mile away,” says Savig. “I have pretty much eliminated local critters. At first I thought it was a canine, but when you put the sounds on a spectrogram they don’t match with them.”
Savig believes his recording contains a communication event between two or more of the unproven creatures.
“There appears to be a distant reply with the same human-like quality. It is purported that Bigfoot has a human-like quality to some of their vocals. I also posted later in the day this one that also has some similar vocals and it is closer to the recorder Pine Ridge 151207”
He thinks the screams sound very much like the creature known as the Wild Man. The Wild Man is a purported hairy hominid, resembling humans, reputed to inhabit different parts of the world. In Russia, they call them Almas.
In 1982, author Carroll C. Calkins, in the first edition of Mysteries of the Unexplained, wrote the story about a Russian soldier who was asked to interrogate a man believed to be a spy and later determined the suspect to be one of these cryptids.
Just last week, an Australian researcher released audio of what he believes to be a similar creature.
In 2014, a Bigfoot enthusiast recorded a series of sounds in Washington state resembling those captured by the Missourian.
And even though Savig admits that it is quite difficult to identify all the sounds he frequently captures, he suspects that, because of the additional evidence from the Ozarks, it’d be possible for it to be a Sasquatch.
“I am not able to know all the sounds that known animals make, so they are classified as unknown,” he said. “It is the first time we caught these type of vocals, but it won’t be the last.”
Savig is asking the listeners and other researchers to help him identify the mysterious howls.
