Based in Brooklyn, NY, I write about all things creepy and strange. My book based on the real haunting of Doris Bither (The Entity 1982 movie) will be released soon. Got a question? Drop me a line.

Patterson/Gimlin Bigfoot

Throughout my years as a paranormal blogger/writer I’ve encountered several dozen recordings of what is said to be the howling of a Bigfoot. It’s more like a moan actually. A very creepy moan that sounds “ape-ish”.

Local Seattle news station, King5, received a cellphone recording from a young man who said that while playing video games late into the morning, he heard a howling that was unlike something he’s heard before. He took out his cellphone and manage to record the eerie howls that night. The howls are much similar to those supposed Bigfoot howls that I’ve heard before. Whether or not this recording is real, is up in the air. For now, we only have his word on what transpired that night.

You’ll have to crank up the volume on this one.

hi King5 my name is Matthew and I live in Rainier WA.
on Friday night I was playing Xbox live with my friends it was 3:30 am when I herd the first cry.
I tried off all my electronics and hit the rec on my cellphone. and I herd it the next night around the same time.
then my sister and her friend herd it Saturday around 12:00 pm wail she was leveling the house.
and it was the last time we all herd it.. so I got on you tube and started looking for sounds that Mach my recording and I found 1.
is on monster quest but I still don’t know? I was thinking it could be a mating call that big foot dues to look for a mate.
or a dog howling or a fox call but I don’t know?
so if you guys can help me it would be cool…

So what do you Bigfoot researchers make of this? I know several of you readers are avid Bigfoot researchers and have actual field experience, so hearing your thoughts about the recording would be nice.

    I have personally always thought the howls/moans of ‘Bigfoot’ have been some of the most credible evidence presented. They always just sound so different and creepy.

  • Not really sure. Sounds a lot like a calf “howling” for momma cow. Also sounds a bit like other wildlife. No real way of knowing, tbh. The audio is pretty bad – funny that he thought to record it with a cell phone.

  • Have to agree with bigpunkdrummer that vocalizations are always compelling because, unlike photos and video, they suggest an authentic, living animal. The problem with sound recording is you never know if a Bigfoot researcher is out in the woods call-blasting in the next valley. The howl above may be a recoding of a recording. Let’s just hope the original was a real Bigfoot.

  • Thundercats?

    This can be achieved through the manipulation of a voice recorder and magnets, btw.

    Nevermind, everyone, it’s just my husband before he gets his coffee.

    Sword of Omens- give me sight beyond sight! Thunder, thunder, thundercats, Hoooooooo!

    Sorry, I couldn’t resist.

    I agree, sound evidence is pretty compelling but ScareyTrue is right- you never know if it’s a someone out there blasting it themselves.

    It does sound like a calf, and “…the last time we all herd it” 😉

    A moose with rectal itch?

    That could be anything.

    Here’s an idea. Get a credible suit onto a seven foot tall guy, then locate some bears. Run at the bears, wearing the suit. If they panic, they believe in Bigfoot. If they amble away like bears do, then they don’t.

    I turned the volume way up and I couldn’t hear anything!

  • Nobbles


    it sounds like “WOAWOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!”

    I’ve heard a few howls in the field and of course from recordings, including one or two of my own. This sounds fairly typical of them. Their howls are different of course but what we can hear (still faint), I wouldn’t discount it out of hand.

    Capricornia, the lower octaves may simply be below your hearing range. Maybe if you download it and then try turning up the treble and down the bass at diff levels, it might stand out better for you.

    Wish I had some high end recording equipment and a few extra bucks for trips because I could secure some good stuff in the field. Recording them with audio is much easier to accomplish then with video.
