There are those who claim to have encountered the sasquatch, but have never seen it.
They hear it breathing behind them, and turn to find nothing. They hear it following or
walking beside them, but nothing is there. For centuries, Native Americans attributed
supernatural abilities to the sasquatch including telepathy and the power to become
invisible. It appears that Native Americans were not the only ones to find themselves in
the presence of an invisible sasquatch. Reports of the unseen hominid continue today.
In his book, Unexplained!, Jerome Clark relates a strange incident that occured on the evening of November 3, 1977, a rare encounter with what some claim
to be a possible invisible bigfoot was reported on a reservation in North
Dakota. A bigfoot-type creature was spotted throughout the afternoon and
into the evening. Locals, along with the police, staked out the area to search for the mysterious
creature. A rancher named Lyle Maxon reported a strange encounter, claiming he was
walking in the dark when he plainly heard something nearby breathing heavily, as if from running. He shined his
flashlight on the source of the sound only to see nothing there. Startled by the incident,
he pondered the idea that sasquatch might be able to become invisible when frightened or
It is a startling scenario to image walking in the woods and being surrounded by curious
6-8 foot tall, 500 pound bigfoot creatures and not being able to see them or even know
they are there. Perhaps it is the sasquatch’s gift of invisibility that has prevented its
confirmed discovery for so long.
Obviously, the invisible sasquatch theory lends no further scientific credibility to the
existence of the hidden man-ape. When attributing supernatural abilities to bigfoot, it becomes a paranormal entity and not a biological one. As a paranormal creature, bigfoot is easily caught up in trans-dimensional portal theories and ties with UFOs and extraterrestrial visitation. Skeptics suspect that it is only superstition and fear of
being in the woods alone that causes the idea that an invisible sasquatch is nearby,
making the strange noises one hears and breaking twigs behind them.
