The bush is a dangerous place for a lone hiker. In the outskirts of the Rez, I have to be cautious polar bears, bears, and wolves. I always carry a staff and a knife around in the bush. But I don’t smack the dogs while in town.
My father told me, if you see a polar bear from a distance, don’t make sudden movements, don’t run, back away slowly. Don’t let it see you. If the wind is blowing in your direction, the better your chances of getting away.
Polar bears stalk and prey on humans. The wind can either betray or mask you. Animals have a keen sense of smell. Regardless what people believe, animals are not stupid creatures. Wear drab or earth tone colours, don’t wear bright colours or red, when you’re in the bush.
Whether you believe believe that Sasquatch beings exist. You should be aware that there are various type of creatures in this world, some of which are meaner and nastier than Sasquatch.
Dangerous type of bigfoot is the Gugwe aka Genoskwa. They hunt in groups, known to bite off human faces and carry the victims off.
A regular Sasquatch can toss a large boulder at great distance, killing the target in an instant. Female Sasquatches are not permitted to wander about alone. They’re breeding stock and to prevent other males from snatching them.
