  1. I’m happy to see dogs in this photo and I have a question about the Sasquatch not liking dogs. If I understand correctly, it’s just that they don’t want the dogs around because the dogs can see/smell them and give away their hiding spots from hunters. Otherwise, if no one is hunting them and just walking in the woods hoping to meet the Sasquatch and have a neighborly relationship with them, do they like dogs then? My dogs would certainly embrace them and call them family. Thanks so much.

    1. Thanks for your comment Jot. The Sasquatch have similar feelings towards Humans and domestic dogs. If the dogs (or people) are afraid or aggressive, the Sasquatch prefer staying away. I’ve heard only once the Sasquatch angry cry in northern California 1986, because a dog was barking like mad at it and the cry silenced it right away. In 2003 on Vancouver Island, we saw a Sasquatch by the road side in the rainforest and the dog with us freaked out barking, so the Sasquatch paralyzed us through hypnosis, so he could slowly get away safely.

      On the other hand, some dogs become best friends with Sasquatch. One such dog friend named Buddha, who sadly passed too young this winter, was enjoying walking with me or his owner to go meet the Sasquatch in the woods. To my knowledge, he still holds to this day the record of photos and videos with some Sasquatch in the frame. See our article about him:

    2. Dan’s dogs are beautiful and remind me of my husky/chow/starBeing puppy who was brought to me through the Lion’s Gate portal last year. I believe he must have something to do with my connection to the Sasquatch. Which reminds me, it feels like a new puppy is coming in and I’ve decided I want to name her Squatchy. Not to mock the Sasquatch, but to honor them. It feels like they are OK with this. Socializing her will open up the minds of those who ask why I named her that….

      I also have a question about the Sasquatch screech.. I was out walking about 10 days ago at 4:30 am, my usual time, and I heard something I’ve never heard before, about a half mile away.. It started out like an animal scream but got more intense and I found myself in a moment of being terrified. Not terrified for me but terrified for them. I’ve never experienced anything like it in my life. During the end of the screeching, it almost sounded like a woman being murdered. I am assuming this was the Sasquatch, but have never actually heard this on video. What is your opinion? Thank you.

      1. Cool name. Sure, if your intention is to honor them, they will know. About the screeches, I am not sure. They have a very wide variety of vocals. I’ve heard a large diversity first hand myself, and a few recordings. What you describe could very well be one of them, but hard to say without hearing it. It also reminds me of the cry of the wolverine, which very much sounds like a screaming woman. But I don’t know in what part you live or if there are any wolverines there. The feeling you describe that came with the experience might suggest though, that it was a Sasquatch…

      2. I’m in Santa Fe, NM and we do have wolverines, foxes, along with mountain lions and I’ve listened to all the recordings of wild animals on youtube lately, trying to match the sound. The closest is this recording:

        Does this sound genuine to you? The force and power behind the sound was enormous. It sent that feeling of terror through every cell in my light~body…..(smiling) Thanks for your help, so greatly appreciated. I would love to join your gathering, we’ll see if that manifests for me.

      3. It’s one of the sounds they make. I heard it on my birthday last year in Sasquatch Provincial Park when a Sasquatch came walking across the campground soon after dark and had everybody run away and hide in their vehicles, dead quiet. Except me I should say who was happy they came to visit and talk. One of the main characteristics is the loud volume of their screams, sounding louder than anything else. At times though, they can whisper, whistle, or do gentle calls and friendly hoots. Thanks for sharing your experience…
