Dark Poop Found Near Felton, California

I've been going to an area near Felton, California to hike and look for signs of bigfoot. This area has had two sightings in 2012 (click here for blog article).

After the second sighting which was in the bushes beside the pond, Mike Rugg (Bigfoot Discovery Museum) found dark poop nearby. Since then, other similar looking poop has been found in the area. Following below, are screen stills from various videos shot at the time each poop was found. Click on the Photo to see a bigger view, click on the Title to watch the video.

UPDATE: I learned in October 2013 that there is a 1200 pound wild cow in this area that no one has been able to catch for 3 years. It only comes out at night or early morning and bolts at the sight of humans. The large poop below is probably from this cow. The smaller poop is either from deer or other small animals.

In September 2012, I started finding similar poop in another secluded spot half mile from the pond. Some may have been there for awhile, but at least one was fresher because I stepped in it by accident one evening when I was there later than normal and couldn't really see where I was going. I walked around for a week not knowing it was embedded in my right heel.

Photo below might be horse, riders certainly walk through here.

Also possible they could be horse?


Photo below found on the approach to the secluded area half mile from the pond. This might be compacted deer, although there's usually other loose pellets around also?

UPDATE: On my final hike before moving to Thailand, I found the Wild Cow.

I'd like to talk a little bit about people's memory...

In my younger days, I served 4 years in the US Navy. As is true today, the United States was at war, but back then the war was in Vietnam. There was an active draft. I had flunked out of college, so my choice was either wait around to be drafted and probably end up fighting in the jungle or join and maybe have some say in where I ended up, so at 19, I joined the Navy.

After my 4 years obligation had ended, I got out on June 1, 1970, when my second boat TJ returned to Long Beach, California from South East Asia and Vietnam. I was 23.

As the years rolled by, I became a computer design engineer.

At 50, I joined my second Veteran organization, Vietnam Veterans of America (VVA). In those days, VVA was very active speaking in the local schools, especially to 11th graders about our experiences during America's war in Vietnam. I even wrote down my talking points for a student in 1999. All those experiences I remembered without a problem then. If you're interested, what I wrote down is here: Students

I turned 66 earlier this week. About 10 years ago, I noticed I no longer remembered exact details like I did back in 1999. I suppose partly because we aren't very active speaking in the schools anymore and also I'm just getting older.

Which brings me to the point of this article.

I think it's important to actively seek out as many bigfoot stories as possible before the details are lost forever to fading memories. If possible, record them on video or audio, so that the expression and body language of the witness is also captured rather than trying to imagine the happenings from a written page alone.

It's been 45+ years since the Patterson-Gimlin film, longer for other encounters. In some cases, not only have the witnesses passed, but also the original investigators as well. Once that happens, first hand knowledge passes with them.

I encourage people who have never spoken of their experiences to find someone who will listen, understand and record them. You don't have to serve in combat to suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) or survivor's guilt, you just have to experience something traumatic outside your normal everyday living, like an encounter with something strange and unexplained. Keeping something like that bottled up inside will take a toll in time. It helps to talk about it.
