COUNTY: Habersham
NEAREST TOWN: Batesville, Sautee Nacoochee, Helen

TYPE: Possible Vocalizations
OCCURENCE: 2 times
LENGTH: Duration lasted about 1-2 Minutes on both occasions


Not any animal I have heard before.

My family and I had just recently relocated to Georgia from another state and we temporality lived with my grandparents in Batesville, GA until we could buy a place of our own. During this period on two different and separate occasions late at night, I was outside stargazing in the front lawn with my sister then she went back into the house and I continued to stargazing. As I was stargazing, I was also observing all the sounds out in the forests and valleys in the nearby mountains since my grandparents live on a very tall hill, highest point in Batesville actually situated in the Chattahoochee National Forest. As I was listening, I heard dogs miles around from where I was, started to holler and bark in a frenzy. After a few minutes passed of constant barking, I also heard coyotes because they made a more distinct howling sound that was stronger than the low loud barking of the domesticated dogs. Through a steady orchestra of both the dogs and coyotes, I heard a very strange and yet eerie/creepy sound from amongst the barking and howling. It was very distinct howl/call/sound/voice described as a moan or howl holler. It was long, deep and carried for miles and miles away. I knew it was no other animal because to my extensive research on vocalizations of Bigfoot/Sasquatch on the internet, I came to the quick conclusion that this was bigfoot communicating with other bigfoots in the area.

I knew this was a sasquatch call because I came across vocalizations recorded in Columbiana County, Ohio, near the Ohio River in 1994 by Matt Moneymaker (http://www.bfro.net/AVEVID/MJM/ohrec.asp) and it was exactly the same sound that I heard.

Matt Pruitt also made mention of this similarity of Sautee Nachoochee report (http://www.bfro.net/GDB/show_report.asp?id=25693).

This is all I heard and I never heard it again since. My family and I now live elsewhere but still very close to this area. I hope to do future research in this area and try and collect evidence of this creature.

TIME AND CONDITIONS: Summer night between 10 pm-Midnight on both occasions. Skies were clear, stars clearly visible and moon was out.

ENVIRONMENT: Dense forests in the Chattahoochee National Forest
