Big Furry Beast
Compiled From Wire Dispatches
BRITISH COLUMBIA--"A big, furry foul-smelling creature" emerged from the woods and surprised a group of Canadians about 35 miles east of Vancouver Sunday, and many people in the area are convinced it was "Bigfoot," the legendary apelike creature who supposedly lives in the Pacific Northwest.
Busdriver Pat Lindquist and four passengers on his sight-seeing bus saw the seven-foot tall, 500-lb. creature when it emerged from the woods bordering on the highway.
Linquist. who later said he thought it was someone wearing a costume as a joke, pursued the animal in his bus but it disappeared back into the forest and was not seen again.
Royal Canadian Mounted Police later arrived on the scene to investigate, but could find no evidence of the creature.
