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 KNOW they exist but hate groups of people and are FAST and Elusive. If you go out with a group you will never see one. If you are for real email me. I am a Viet Nam era vet and know BS when I hear it. I believe you but I have never seen one. Thanks, Mike

Wow this is awesome. Did you take pictures of them yourself

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

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.

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.
