After a number of sightings in 1971, KGW ventured out to Skamania, Washington, to interview people who claimed to have seen the legendary yet elusive creature of Northwest lore. The KGW reporter is Jon Tuttle.
KGW talked with a witness who came face-to-face with the creature, she said, near Beacon rock and also talked with the publisher of the Skamania County Pioneer newspaper about the various citizen reports, the local sheriff who made the (now discounted) plaster cast of the reported Bigfoot footprint and a member of the Skamania County council that had passed a ?no bigfoot hunting? ordinance that made it a crime to shoot a ?Sasquatchie?, as the sightings had drawn trappers and hunters from around the nation all trying to capture the mythical mammal.
For more background here is a 1976 NYT article about the events: https://www.nytimes.com/1976/06/30/ar...
