Strange vocalizations heard on an island without wildlife. What could they be?
Alert Bay residents have been reporting strange screams and howls coming from a forest that surrounds the town – and some think they could be coming from a sasquatch.
Mackenzie Mountain said he recently recorded the unusual sounds on his cell phone at night on the backside of Cormorant Island.
“This summer I’ve heard it three times, I’ve heard it scream three times. But it’s been coming here for years,” said resident Rod Alfred.
It’s more like a howl than a scream. So are the sounds consistent? Why assume it’s the legendary cryptid? People who believe it, say they’ve seen it too.
Note that there is mention of the native belief in a mythical wild man (they label it Sasquatch but that name is likely not what it was called long ago). However, that is not necessarily the creature we now think of as Bigfoot/Sasquatch. So, the native myth is not sound evidence of today’s explanation as “Bigfoot”. It sounds like a dog. But their excuse is that it’s too loud. Hmm, water reflects sound. So that’s not a good conclusion. Many people say they’ve seen Bigfoot, we have no good evidence that a large creature is there. It should be straightforward to find such evidence in an isolated place like this.
Veteran Bigfoot researcher John Bindernagle is visiting to search for that evidence. We’ll see what he finds.

UPDATE: A disappointing update on Bindernagle’s search. He supplies NO evidence of anything. But, he believes it’s a Sasquatch and therefore, he’s too biased to make a sound conclusion. There is talk of sightings and footprints but those are anecdotes, there is nothing to go on. I would like to see the local wildlife officials comment on the vocalizations. The chance that it is a PERSON is still more likely than an Sasquatch.
