SIGHTINGS OR OBSERVATIONS

The most abundant evidence for the existence of the sasquatch takes the form of eyewitness accounts of an upright, bipedal hair-covered animal. There are literally thousands of these on file.

The value of such descriptions as evidence is increased when eyewitnesses attempt to draw what they have seen. Such sketches and drawings are helpful in showing physical features that are often not easy to describe. They have been particularly helpful in revealing a persistent pattern of anatomical features throughout North America. Four examples appear below.

The remarkable consistency of eyewitness reports and drawings across time and especially across geographical distance is compelling. It really does appear that the same species of upright, human-shaped mammal has been observed by eyewitnesses of varying backgrounds and circumstances and in various states and provinces across western, midwestern, and central North America.

The individual sasquatches observed and illustrated above may show such remarkable similarity in the eyewitness drawings because they may all be mature males as evidenced by the broad shoulders.

Other sasquatches have been described as females based on the fact that breasts were visible or that they were carrying an infant:

Other observers have reported similar upright "creatures" covered in hair, approximately 7 feet in height, with no neck. Because they lacked the broad shoulders of other eyewitness drawings and appeared to be more humanlike in their proportions, it appears that these may have been young adult or subadult sasquatches.
