(NEW YORK) — Bigfoot is back in the headlines again, but it’s not because of foot prints, grainy video or sightings. This time it’s audio.
A recording that was given to the Oregonian newspaper captured high-pitched shrieks and roars from a swampy area in the Blue Mountains of Oregon, a bigfoot hot spot for decades.
People living in the area said they’ve been hearing the strange cries in the night since November.
“These are not just animals, these are a type of people,” said Melba Ketchum, a bigfoot expert.
Some suggest it could be a young bigfoot that got lost calling out for his fellow bigfoots.
“Well, first, it’s more than one. Remember it’s not bigfoot, it’s bigfoots. There’s a misconception out there that we’re looking around for this one thing,” said Matt Moneymaker, a bigfoot hunter.
One alternate theory for the high pitched shrieks is that they could be the screams of local foxes.
