Bigfoot Spotted On Campus!

Wide-eyed and heart racing, environmental science major and recreation intern Jonathan Rader stood in awe while he was face-to-face with the creature everyone calls Bigfoot.

“Seeing a Bigfoot has been a dream of mine ever since I was a young boy scout. Many people do not believe in their power and presence in the woods, but I do, and I know that is why I saw one. I didn’t find a Bigfoot, Bigfoot found me,” said Rader.

Rader was running alone through the WSUV trails on June 19th when he noticed something “extremely large, hairy and illusive” in his path. To be safe, he took shelter behind one of the many trees to get a better look. As soon as he realized what was before him, he snapped a couple photos before the Bigfoot dipped over the embankment in to Mill Creek.

These “keepers of the land” as Rader calls them, are one of the most sought after creatures on the planet. Bigfoot are mysteriously secretive and usually great at keeping themselves hidden. Seeing one on the campus trails is a pat on the back for WSUV, said Rader. “This only means they feel comfortable here and can continue their harmless lifestyle.”

According to Rader, there have been Bigfoot sightings all over the world, leading to his theory that there are thousands of these independent creatures and they do not travel in packs. Generally seen in more geographical regions that contain trees and mountains for shelter, Bigfoot are notorious for being wanderers and keeping to themselves. Besides their infamous banshee screech, Bigfoot are relatively quiet and hard to detect.

So what do we do now as WSUV has attracted one of the most novel creatures in the world? Do not hide, do not be afraid, and do not hunt. This particular Bigfoot, and those who may have followed, are comfortable to call this place home, as many of us Cougs have as well. Cougs and Bigfoot can live in harmony, as long as we believe.
