Mystery howls spark Bigfoot hunt in Canada

Residents of a remote island community have been plagued by mysterious screams and howling noises.
Alert Bay, a village on the coast of Cormorant Island in British Columbia, has become the site of an ongoing mystery involving unexplained creature calls that have been puzzling residents for years.

Several people have reported hearing the sounds and while nobody knows for sure what is making them there are many who believe that the legendary Bigfoot may be responsible.

Local resident Art Dick, who claims that he has heard the sounds coming from right outside his house, recalls actually encountering what he believes to have been the creature itself several years ago when he had a tree thrown in his direction while searching for clams on an island to the south.

"Pulled the tree right out of the ground, the branches were still on it. I don’t know anything that could literally pull a tree with roots and all,” he said. “I mean, you see that little alder growing out there? You try and pull it out, you’re not going to be able to do it.”

There have also been reports of a woman who encountered the creature in a cemetery.

"She went up to the graveyard to pay respects to one of her family, and when she went up to the graveyard, she saw it standing there," said local Rod Alfred.

"She turned around and she got out of there right away."

Looking at Cormorant Island on Google Maps, it looks like it is only three miles long. And looking at Alert Bay on Wikipedia, it says 1500 people. That's a lot of people on such a small island. I don't think bigfoot would like such crowded environs. Though there have been several sightings at the north end of Vancouver Island over the last couple years. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alert_Bay

Just took a look at Cormorant Island on Wikimapia: it appears that this bigfoot is closely related to the one recently reported in Prospect Park.

- note both its proximity to Vancouver Island (a bit over 1 mile) and Vancouver Island's proximity from the mainland (a bit over 1 mile at closest point). Also note that game animals like deer, moose, and bears are all good swimmers: This deer was found swimming out in the gulf of Mexico. I forget how far it was found but as I remember it was many miles from shore. (Adult moose) are excellent swimmers and can cross large expanses swimming up to 6 miles per hour for two hours at one time.  Black bears can swim at least a mile and a half in fresh water, and one was recorded doing just that.
