Two missionaries with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints received a scare on the night of Dec. 2 when they saw what they think was a set of sasquatch footprints outside of their Burns Lake home.
Tyler Beck and Brad Blazzard are in B.C. for two years, rotating in different communities throughout the Smithers and Burns Lake area for the past seven months.
"The first thing we thought was that someone was playing a trick on us," Beck said."But we don't know anyone our age who would do that and our house in on the southside, so pretty much in the middle of nowhere."
The footprints, which Beck said was about 20 inches long is right in front of Beck's porch, leading to the path where the pair keep their wood shed.
Beck said prior to finding the footprint at 9:30 p.m. on the night of Dec. 2, he didn't really believe in the possibility of bigfoot.
"I still don't know what to think," he said. "I have heard some pretty ridiculous things about bigfoot but now I am leaning toward the edge of thinking it may be possible."

*** Just a note. I will be gone for a few weeks during the Christmas Holiday. I hope to see you all back in the New Year!!!
Merry Christmas and may God bless all the members of Free Republic.
Possibly just a creature from Kolob checking up on the boys.
He was chanting “pay lay ale.” I need to drink some “pay lay ale.”
Go with that.
Thanks, as always!
It actually was a footprint from the resurrected “Goliath” who has a message from Jesus Christ for them....
Smithers and Burns Lake?
That’s nothing. Wait till they find the golden plates!
“Two missionaries with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints received a scare on the night of Dec. 2 when they saw what they think was a set of sasquatch footprints outside of their Burns Lake home.”
I don’t know about this...if these guys catch up with a sasquatch with 20-inch footprints and end up converting it to Mormonism, where on earth are they going to find a 10-speed bicycle big enough for it to go on mission trips?
Trust your intial instinct on this one. Missionary practical jokes on each other are pretty common.
A few of our tamer stories include removing all four tires from the other Elders mission car, obtaining keys to each others apartments and Toliet papering AKA, "trashing each others pits", changing the other Elders phone messages and kidnapping one sister missionarie's stuffed animal her boyfriend sent her for Christmas. We passed it around the mission and Elders periodically sent her "kidnapped tourist" pictures of her precious bunny. Of course eventually someone involved in the fun would evetually feel guilty and confess, get tattled on, or pictures would get out. Eventually the Mission President would lecture those involves in the shenanigans.
I prided myself on never getting busted. Before one Zone Conference the ZL's bragged how they had never been hit with any practical jokes. We stole their keys during their morning car inspection (they left them in the car) slipped away on our bikes and copied them at the KMart down the road and returned them in less than 10 minutes. Later we slipped out again and TP'd their place between another meeting. Most of our meetings that day were with them. IOW, they were our alibi. They never figured it and spent the next few months accusing everyone but us. Good times.
19-21 year olds still are 19-21 year olds.
some story, different paper.
I wondered as Houston doesn’t seem to be big sasquatch territory. Since it was actually up in BC it was probably just bear tracks in the mud or snow. City folks out in the country periodically confuse bear tracks for bigfoot.
Goodness, my brain is shattered. I totally forgot about that. And I even pinged the group. It’s been a hell of a month for me.
Houston is Chupacabra territory not sasquatch.
That’s what I thought. Chupacabra’s wouldn’t take kindly to a invasion of Wookie like creatures.
