Some people living on the Umatilla Indian Reservation in Oregon are pretty sure they’ve been listening to Bigfoot for the past month or so. An employee at the tribal housing authority tells “The Oregonian” they started getting reports about loud cries coming from a swamp on the reservation back in December. Some are attributing the spooky noises to the legendary ape-like humanoid, who is part of the locals’ tribal traditions and spiritual beliefs. But Wildlife Program Manager Carl Sheeler says it’s more likely that the source is a slightly more common animal, like a fox or a cougar. He explains that, mixed with the echoing nature of the swamp and surrounding canyons, cougars’ breeding calls can be “absolutely hair-raising.”
