Was that the Smell of a Sasquatch?

Harrison Lake

Below is one of 17 unusual experiences reported to us by Brian Reinhardt. If you would like to read his other 16 reports, they are posted throughout the UFO history section by year, or altogether on one page. We felt this is important since part of the puzzle is answering the question: why certain people have so many strange experiences while others never see anything peculiar in their entire lifetime?

1966 - My girlfriend Leigh and I had gone for a drive to Harrison Lake, upon arrival we drove up to the picnic grounds on the east side. We had her little dog with us and decided to take him for a walk. When we got to the north end of the beach I was about 100 ft. ahead of Leigh and the dog was running back and forth between us. The rocks come right down to the water at that point and as I approached them. I suddenly caught a whiff of a really putrid odour sort of like a cross between a Skunk and some sort of large dead animal. I was thinking of climbing over the rocks and seeing what it was but just as I was going to start climbing the dog got a whiff. I had never seen him back down from anyone or thing, but he turned and with his tail between his legs took off for the car. I called him and Leigh called him but he was not stopping for nothing. I was starting to get the feeling that someone or thing was watching me and after seeing the dogs reaction decided to get out of there. When we got back to the parking lot he was hiding under my car. I have often wondered if maybe the smell was coming from a Sasquatch. I wish I'd had the nerve to look.
