Bigfoot in the Inland Empire and Fontana

Fontana (San Bernardino County), California Big Foot Rampages through old Fontana Drag Strip area

A short-order cook who lived in the Fontana area since the 1940s, said over the years friends of his shared stories about the "Speedway Monster." He couldn't elaborate but said "some old-timers" (I'm In there somewhere) told him that back in 1951-52, a crowd of fans at the Fontana Speedway saw, at a distance, what seemed to be a hairy, two-legged giant criss-cross an open field. The criss-crossing creature appeared in the same area "quite a few times" in the early 1950s the 60's 70's and even the 80's. Despite repeated sightings of the Speedway Monster during all of these decades, no one apparently ever got close enough to identify it clearly.

In 1991, on several successive nights the John Davis family heard "something heavy on two legs" run across their chicken yard. "The footfalls were so heavy-sounding the house shook," said Mrs. Davis. Mr. Davis found several of his chickens completely flattened one morning, "...as if something played hopscotch on those birds." The Davis' youngest son glimpsed what he described as a "real big, gray-colored ape." A section of fencing was pulled up and pet dogs howled and cowered indoors at night. The Davis home is the home you see as you travel north on Summit Ave and is located at the base of the foothills of Lytle Creek.

Also in 1992, on Foothill and areas to the east, several reports came in from a couple of families traveling on Foothill about a family of Big Foots crossing over the tracks that crossed over Foothill down where Ace Hardware is located.

But once the drag strip was closed after a particular nasty accident which resulted in the beheading of the driver involved, reports of Bigfoot activity in Fontana also stopped

But, as it turns out, there are plenty of other Bigfoot sightings in Southern California. In fact, according to Bobbie Short, webmaster of the Bigfoot site, the first ever sightings of Sasquatch were here.

"Sasquatches have been reported in remote locations of Southern California since the early 1700s," Short says. "The mission padres wrote about them."

One account appeared in 1876 in a San Diego newspaper. Turner Helm's partner said the two were prospecting in different areas of Warner's Ranch when Helm saw a man covered with thick black hair, like that of a bear, but with a man's face.

"He was a man of about medium size," Helms' partner said, "and had rather fine features -- not at all like those of an Indian but more like an American or Spaniard.

"Mr. Helm spoke to the singular creature, first in English and then Spanish and then in Indian but the man remained silent. Mr. Helm called to me, but the wind was blowing so hard that I could not hear him. The wild man then turned and went over the hill and was soon out of sight."

In 1993, a camper in Barton Flats reported being awakened in the middle of the night by footsteps outside the van he was sleeping in. Suddenly the van began rocking violently. The camper yelled and the rocking stopped. When he shined his flashlight out the van window, he says he saw a figure covered with hair, walking upright like a man as it headed into the forest.

I interviewed 5 witnesses in Norco who saw a large hairy man Jan.5 2008 in the Norco river bottom.On investigating the area I found and photographed a series of 22" barefoot human like prints coming out of the river 150 yds. from the sighting. This is not the first encounter in this area.I have lived on the Santa Ana river all my life and know of other sightings.I have found other prints in the past that I could not write off as hoax or anomaly.I feel these animals use the river corridors for winter travel and to escape the snow.Amazing for such a high density population area,but the fact is I could move from San Bernardino to Orange county in the river thickets and not be seen.Contact me by leaving a message at this site. mv

Ah, bull pucky - unless that quake was bigfoot jumping up and down?

My dad claims that when he was young he used to see a whole family of bigfoot. He says that the little ones used to throw pebbles at them. I grew up hearing this all my life.  He grew up in San Bernardino but I forgot what area he says that they would hang out.

you guys are crazy. next you will be saying you see ufos

I grew up in Norco and my friends and I used to ride our bikes down to the riverbottom. This was before the 15 freeway went through Norco, over 20 years ago. I, personally, have never seen anything like bigfoot, but my brothers had friends who did. The only weird things I found in the riverbottom were strange altars and dead cats and porn magazines. Oh and the occasional transient camp

Can you send a pic

Sasquatches do follow rivers, creek beds and lakeshores in BC Canada, when they go south in the fall. They get water and game at night and early in the morning close to water. You can walk faster that way going south, as Indians have known for centuries. And, yes, sasquatches do exist. If only those who see them would report their sightings to serious organizations studying them, at bfro.net or bigfootencounters.com, we could study their migratory patterns more easily. A small percentage of sightings is reported.
P.S. I never saw a Sasquatch, but I had seen two UFOs. They are not related.

I encountered Bigfoot in Northern California in the mid 1980's. My friend and I were on our way to fort Bragg to ride the "skunk train", and in between Cloverdale and Fort Bragg is where we had our bizarre and frightening encounter. We had pulled off to the side of the road to take a leak. I noticed a rustling in the brush, which was alarming, the night was very very dark. There was just enough light from the flat bed pick-up to see the vegetation. As I finished taking care of business, I smelled the most horrible stench I can recall. It was like sweet, pungent garbage, the smell was positively revolting. I distinctly remember seeing just enough of an outline in the dark to distinguish a massive creature now standing upright in the foliage. At which point I heard it crash off in the brush hurriedly. I do not believe we encountered a bear a coyote or any other quadruped. It was not a Grizzly as they have been extirpated from this state for decades and it sure as heck was not a giant homeless person escaped from a state mental hospital! The smell remained on our clothes and could be smelled in the cab for many hours afterwards. My friend Greg and I both believed we had an encounter with Bigfoot/Sasquatch that dark moonless night many years ago.

I grew up on a dairy on River Road. The pastures and hay fields border the Santa Ana River property line. We had geese, pigs, deer, chickens, cats, and dogs as pets so I know what their normal and distress calls sounded like. The coyotes were heard all the time. Every ones in a while though we would here screams coming from the river bottom that sounded as if they were coming from someone in distress. Creepy. My dad said is was the feral pigs going at it. Never saw anything so I can't say with all certainty. Very possible and likely that this would be used as a transit corridor by them.

I believe you.Do you think he uses the river coming down from the mountains.I talk to a friend who had A encounter in Lytle creek in 2008.

All i can say is if Big Foot is a fake, why do we have 3 states have laws against shooting at them with anything but a camera...I believe California is one state considerating a ban as well, although that was a couple of years ago.

Just because you have never seen one dont mean they dont exist....I've seen several ghosts, but most people haven't, nor do they beleive in them....I saw my first ghost when I was too young to even know what i was seeing until i described what I had seen to my mom.

The same goes for Big Foot....I have been in several mountain areas and found tracks that were hugh. My uncle told me they were elk....Yeah right, In Running Springs....

u guys are fucking stupid...
thats what u call being easily manipulated by stupidity......

I believe that Bigfoot is real because I know what Bigfoot is. The film that Roger Patterson and Bob Gimlin made in 1967 in Northern California at Bluff Creek of Bigfoot was real. Here is what they filmed on October/20/1967. Several thousand years ago there were thousands of slaves that ran off around the world and started their own countries. When these slaves ran off there was a large group of men and boys of all different ages and sizes that took off and ended up in Africa. Some of them were giants as tall as 9 ft. or even taller. The giant named Goliath that David killed with his slingshot was 9 ft. tall. So there were giant men in those days. Some of these men and boys went exploring to Borneo and caught female Orangutans and took them to South America and had sex with them and created the Indians. The men and boys that stayed in Africa caught female Gorillas and had sex with them and created the Africans. When scientists found the bones in Africa they thought we evolved from a female Chimpanzee. But it wasn't a natural evolution it was a man made evolution. That's where all the Bigfoot and Orangutan creatures come from. They are half man and half Gorilla and half man and half Orangutan. They use to call the Indians the red man. The Orangutan has reddish hair. When those men bred out the hair the Indian's skin remained red. The Gorilla has black hair and skin. When those men bred out the hair the African's skin remained black. Some of the Indians and Africans are tall. And some of the Bigfoot and Orangutan creatures are tall. They are tall because some of the men that created them were tall. Some scientists believe that we evolved from a female Chimpanzee. Have you ever seen an 8 ft. tall Chimpanzee? I haven't either. Bigfoot migrated up through Africa and came into the United States at the top of Africa when the land was connected. The Orangutan creatures migrated up through Central America and came into the United States like the Indians did. The creature that Roger Patterson and Bob Gimlin filmed in 1967 was half man and half Gorilla. It was a female Bigfoot that they named Patty. Patty was not a man in a costume, she is not our missing link and she is not a figment of our imagination. Patty was a creature that was created by men that had sex with female Gorillas and Orangutans a long time ago. Believe it or not, man created his own evolution.

are you fucking kidding me????? thats your story??? your fucking retarded....an ape would rip apart a man if he tried to fuck it you dumb ass..

The story you relate here is pretty far-fetched if not impossible. I have never heard or read about someone having intercourse with an ape. The chimp/ape/orangutan would rip your wanker off and have if for breakfast...that is after it's done laughing at it's size.

You are a WACKO!!! And this is coming from someone that not only believes in Bigfoot, but I also believe in ghosts, ufo's, and that Christians Will ultimately be the downfall to human civilization as we know it!!
Read a book...Educate yourself!!

Hi mv, I'm serious about the the bigfoot phenomenom and would like more information. How can I contact you directly?

This is the most absurd and rediculous,stupidest thing I have ever read! Next this guy is going to be passing out white sheets and burning crosses! Give me a freakin' break!

Thanks to all. I haven't laughed this hard in a while.

This is the type of insulting non-sense that brings a bad conutation to the serious researchers of BFRO and others. To be nut case is one thing but don't go around sprewing this to others under the umbrella that you know what your talking about.

I too mv have a scientific interest in pursuing the existance of Big Foot. Good question how do we contact you?

sheesh,..we cant produce offspring with apes knucklehead, yeah,...so dont get any funny ideas.

If she was in heat, she would submit...

I saw one in modjeska canyon in 1985. It was a very windy day, I came around a corner and it was getting a drink. 20 yards away, when it saw me, it went up a hill taking 20 foot leaps on all fours,( the hill was steep) all black, thick forearms, hair about 2 to 4 inches long all over. Also seen perfect footprints a few times before, thinking it was from a huge dude. For years I would go on a certain trail and 2 differnet dogs would shy away from the same spot going up the side of the cliff, even when I would tell them to go there, not normal for them. Saw brown one from far away, hot summer day and I thought who the hell would be on top of that hill wearing a fur coat. crazy stuff. I know they are still there.

Haven't you ever heard of ropes? How stupid are you?

Haven't you ever heard of ropes dumbass?

Some of the first Europeans that saw the Africans said that some of the African women had genitals that resembled that of a gorilla. If you look at the nose of an African you will notice that it is wide like the gorilla's nose. Those men used ropes to tie the gorillas and orangutans up. That's how they were able to have sex with them. Bigfoot and the Orangutan creatures came from men that had sex with female gorillas and orangutans. Some of these creatures have been described as having long stringy hair. Those are the ones that came from the orangutan. I am not a racist, I am an observer. And don't tell me that it is impossible for a human to create through a female gorilla or orangutan. You people need to educate yourselfs.

If you people believe that humans and primates can not reproduce, then I suggest that you watch these videos.

I have a soloution much easier to swallow.
Gigantopithecus is an extinct genus of ape that existed from roughly one million years to as recently as three-hundred thousand years ago,[1] in what is now China, India, and Vietnam, placing Gigantopithecus in the same time frame and geographical location as several hominin species.[2] The fossil record suggests that the Gigantopithecus blacki species were the largest apes that ever lived, standing up to 3 metres (9.8 ft) and weighing up to 540 kilograms (1,200 lb).[1][3][4]

The genus has entered the popular culture lexicon as a result of cryptozoologic claims.
Based on the fossil evidence, it is believed that adult male Gigantopithecus blacki stood about 3 m (9.8 ft) tall and weighed as much as 540 kg (1,200 lb),[1][3][4] making the species two to three times heavier than modern gorillas and nearly five times heavier than the orangutan, its closest living relative.

Much more info! LOOK IT UP! Wondering how it got to North America Look up Ice Bridge across the Bering straight...
Yeeeeesh! Humans and Orangutangs...get a life.

"WE" need to educate ourselves???!!! UHHHH! Yeah
