Editor’s Note: Clearly a land-mark issue, as this article and accompanying picture created a nation-wide controversy, driving many to visit the shores of Silver Lake themselves…maybe you were one of them! Maybe you, too, felt the lure of the Bigfoot!
A thick, low mist covered the valley, with not a hint of a breeze rustling the dry leavess. The stillness and silence was rather eerie, the birds weren’t even singing. Hanging from the low branches of the Douglas fir trees were dew-covered spider webs. But the spiders weren’t there. It was as if all wildlife were in hiding.
This fall has been an awesome spectacle of beauty. Bright blue skies, with the leaves turning rather late in the season, fall this year has been one of warm weather and delightful views. Bright oranges, deep yellows and the evergreens have decorated the hillsides, with the early mornings featuring the low misty fog.
It was on this one special patchy fog type of morning that the stillness set in. It wasn’t as if the stillness were a weather event, it was more that something different was about to happen.
That was when the cows in the distant pastures started in their odd mooing. Normally with a quiet, still morning, the cows can be heard in the distance with their normal noise. This morning they let out a mournful cry that was different. Very different.
Walking outside, we thought maybe it was coyotes again. Those wiley creatures often make local animals act a little strange. But never have they made the cattle give off such a sound. Listening, there were no coyote sounds.
Thinking again that maybe it was a bear or a cougar. We had spotted one cougar in our yard a couple of years ago. At dusk, as we drove down our west driveway that winds through the trees, out lights picked up a pair of glowing eyes. We stopped, hit the brights, and there in the glow was a small, young golden cougar looking at us. We watched a bit, and it turned and headed south out of our property to the woods. We’ve never seen it again, but the cattle had made some strange sounds that night also.
As we were pondering what could be causing the cattle to make such a strange sound, we picked up a whiff of an awful smell. Like the smell of rotten meat crossed with the aroma of terrible body odor.
We looked around our little three acres but saw nothing. Making sure the dogs were locked into the yard, we went about our morning duties.
