Remains have been found previously and are still being found today. Two possible cases are reported where a leg was found by a dog. After the dog’s owners retrieved the bone-ridden leg, they realized it was not from any animal they could identify. The second case also involves a Great Dane that found what was thought to be a deer leg, until they noticed it had no hoof—it was a foot.
There have been studies conducted as to how long it takes for a deer carcass to completely disappear in forest conditions. It only took a week or two. Then there is the argument that we know bears exist, but how many bear skeletons have been found in the forest?
During my Bigfoot research expeditions, I have come across bones and bone piles. In most cases, it was easy to identify the animal especially when the skull in found. Generally speaking, most people will not take the time or stinky effort to poke through the bones to figure out the animal species or bag the bones for later inspection. Most people leave the bones alone, and species identification is never made.
Then there are strange people like me who have to know. However, it is very difficult and expensive to get the “DNA” test done on every suspicious set of bones. If the test is conducted, it will identify the animal it came from unless it is Bigfoot. In this case, the results will be “Animal Species Unknown (ASU).”
On 20 July 2009, a MogollonMonster.com team was investigating a spot known to the local people as Spooky Valley. Spooky Valley will not appear on any maps because it is a local name given by early ranchers that found every cow that entered into the valley never returned. Horses have great reluctance entering the valley, Forest Service rangers dread working the area, and hunters have had experiences to cause them never to return.
We skirted the south ridge of the valley and began to find bone piles. Some were deer, elk, coyote, and other big animals. No bone piles had skulls. It reminded me of a taboo marker meant to send the message to go no further. Watch the associated video, and see what you think. Is this the home of Bigfoot? Or could one of the bone piles be the remains of a Sasquatch?
