Researchers Encounter ‘Bigfoot’ in Missouri, say it Made Donkey Sounds

Mo. — A man in central Missouri on Tuesday said he and another person witnessed an animal that matched other reports of a Sasquatch.


Bigfoot researcher Randy Savig, 50, told Cryptozoology News he has been investigating the phenomenon for about 3 years.

Savig has focused his efforts to finding audible evidence of the existence of the cryptid.

On Aug. 12, he says, a visual encounter took place in the area he and his friend were investigating.

“Bernie has been my research partner now for over 2 years.  It makes night ops much safer if you have someone else in the woods with you. My friend had been watching something for about 20 minutes in the shadow. It was about 400 feet from camp,” the Missourian explains. “I could see it too. It looked like it was swaying side to side trying to stay behind some leaves.”

Savig believes the animal noticed their presence and became immediately curious.

“I did some stuff to try to draw it out so we can see it better. It seemed to know we busted it and could see it.”

The men said the animal matched the typical “Sasquatch” physical features described on most reports.

According to Savig, who only presented audio of the purported encounter, the creature then began emitting a series of sounds that resembled primate vocalizations.

“The whoop vocals came from about 30 degrees to the right of the subject we were watching,” he says. “They almost seemed to be an alarm. With the audio contamination from the tree frogs and the bugs this time of the year, recording good clear audio is next to impossible, but if you use headphones to listen to this it is easier to hear what is going on.”

But these vocals reportedly became something else. As the two men were closely monitoring the being behind the bushes, the “donkey” sounds began.

“Odd. It was as if it was attempting to mimic a donkey. There are mules on a farm about a mile and a half ,as the crow files, but really sound off from audio we got from them before.”

The two men said that the animal then “dropped down” and that it became “too dark to see anymore”.

“With the subject being about 400 feet away and in the shadows of the tree line we were not able to see any details except the defined silhouette.  The shape matched the reported and observed anatomy of the critter. We did a knock experiment last spring to try and see how far knocks can be heard, and Bernie was knocking on a tree in the same area.  Using his height as reference I would say this subject was 5 1/2 to 6 /1/2 feet tall.  So I do suspect it was a juvenile.”

Savig tells Cryptozoology News that they were not able to record images of the subject.

“The main problem was that this was at dusk.  Video was near impossible without a high-dollar set up, which isn’t possible for me to get. Bernie said he had been seeing something enter and leave that area for about 20 minutes.  Each time it came and left in the same direction. It wasn’t until a firm silhouette could be seen that he realized that it wasn’t just shadow play and told me about it.  That is when this audio clip starts.  He wanted to get another set of eyes on it,” he said.

Some people believe the use of cameras are a hindrance to the discovery of Bigfoot.

Such is the case of the Australian man in charge of the Yowie Listening Project, who believes the creature to be so elusive that the only possible way to capture evidence of its existence is be to use an audio recorder.

“I can’t stress how highly elusive these creatures are. They won’t dance for apples under an IR light,” the man, looking for anonymity, told Cryptozoology News last February.

And Savig, knowing he can’t prove the sounds he has been recording for year come from an actual Bigfoot, says he has classified the audio as “unknown”. Although, the reported visual encounter will most likely present the researcher with a new take on the subject.
