Author seeks Bigfoot info

Author Tom Morris has been studying Bigfoot for years. Morris would like to ask hikers and hunters that if any incidents involving Bigfoot come up, to notify him at 925-930-8123; send him an email at; or send a report in to the Bigfoot Field Research Organization,

There are organizations set on collecting real information, sightings and stories about Bigfoot. One such organization is the Bigfoot Field Research Organization. Founded in 1995, BFRO was claimed as “the only scientific research organization exploring the bigfoot/sasquatch mystery.”

The organization has sightings in Trinity County dating back as far as the 1960s and as recent as the late 2010s.
