The Hay Bale

The Hay Bale

Although this is not new I realized that I had not posted it as part of this blog.

On the 24th of Mar 2005 my research partner called me and asked me to check out an old hay bale that was laying along a fence close to our research area.

My wife was with me and we both looked at the large round hay bale. The photo does not show the outline very well but from our vantage point the hay had been pushed down about 4 inches and left a very distinct image of what appeared to be a giant humanoid figure.

It does seem odd that an animal would feel comfortable enough to lay down on top the bale. Although the road is a dead end it does have occasional traffic.

    That looks weird. How close is the fence behind it? Maybe the squatch or something else used the hay bale as a step to get over the fence. Thanks for sharing the pic.

    Jeff, the only thing behind the fence is closely mowed grass around a radio antennae. I wish the picture would have shown the outline of the impression better.

    This taken by itself it not that inpressive, but given the daylight sightings, many footprints and all the vocalizations I have recorded here in the last 5 years this is just one small part of a very large puzzle.

    Stan: Was this one of those large rolled hay bales? Was this the only one, or were there others around?

    I used to help put up hay as a teenager. We worked

    with the smaller bales with wire. But if it was machine processed, I would think it would take a lot of weight to make an impression like that. Also, if whatever laid down, did so after dark and got up before daybreak, I could see where they would feel fairly safe. Just some thoughts. Thanks for sharing. Les Hauser

    Les,

    Yes this was one of those large bales. It was the only one there, I am not sure what the purpose was as there is no livestock in the area.

    If it had not been such a large bale I could have turned it on its side to have gotten a better picture.

    What ever made the impression was large. Kind of reminds me of the Skookum cast. the 24th of March, I would think is still pretty cold up there, and hay is an excellent insulater. So something big was resting on it, to keep warm would be my guess. very Interesting.
