1982 Grays Harbor Bigfoot Footprints – Pair

One of the best documented footprint finds was in Grays Harbor County, WA in 1982.  Over a period of a few months, at least nine footprints were found and cast by witnesses, the local police, and a small number of bigfooters including Dr. Grover Krantz and Cliff Crook.  

However, it has come to my attention that two very good quality replicas are being commercially and legally sold.  The two casts in question come from the original molds made by Dr. Grover Krantz and licensed to Skulls Unlimited, a commercial fossil supplier.  

The casts can be bought as a pair (click the picture or link above), or as individuals (click the picture or links below).  There are other casts from this individual occasionally available from reputable sources at various bigfoot conferences across the country.

This track line also produced two half-casts from when the creature was running.  One half-cast was taken back in 1982 and is well-documented in the literature, but the other and its recent discovery is documented on the DVD, Bigfoot Road Trip.  Both half-casts are shown below.  

A page in my bigfoot track database is long overdue for the footprint finds during this time, and one will eventually be added.  For now, you can enjoy reading the report filed by the sheriff witness himself, Dennis Heryford, in the BFRO database by clicking this link.

Another cast has been added to the Orang Pendek Project database on my official website.  This one shows some interesting anatomy, but was also worn down in the shipping process by inadequate packaging.

While hunting birds in the jungle, the witness stumbled across sign of a passing orang pendek. He found a line of footprints and broken trees (probably bamboo, but possibly sugarcane) that might have been foraged upon. He also found a pile of leftover fruit and husks in the footprint line. He notified John, the tracker for the Orang Pendek Project, and returned to the site to cast footprints.

A few days ago, I posted another cast to my ever-growing bigfoot footprint database.  This was the Stillaguamish cast from 1980, documented by Douglas Trapp.  Shortly thereafter, I received an email from my good friend Daniel Perez, publisher of the Bigfoot Times newsletter.  He knew Douglass Trapp personally around this same time, and indeed did investigations with him on more than one occasion.  Daniel supplied me with the above newspaper clipping from the Lake Stevens Journal that gives details about the track find.

Most interestingly, this article supplies us with what might be the only photograph of the other footprint cast taken at the site (there’s another avenue I’m working on that might supply us with more photos, but this is far from certain).  In my research on the cast in Dr. Meldrum’s collection, I discovered language that seemed to indicate there was more than one cast made at the site, and that the “only surviving” cast was to be found in Meldrum’s lab.  Thanks to the photos that accompany this article, now we know for sure.
