1960s(?) / 05 / L - Bethel, AK (Area)
Legend of runaway boy named Gabriel Fox who transforms into Sasquatch to survive and later
abduction by military or US Government.
Delta Discovery, 30JAN2013
Additional Information: "Here in the Bethel area, many people's introduction to Hairy Man was through
the creature we came to know of as "Gabriel Fox" in the 1960s. It's the story of a young boy who ran
away from the Children's Home near Kwethluk and survived in the wilderness by turning into a Hairy
Man. But big questions remain: How could a boy turn into a hairy creature that lived in the extreme
wild? Was it really Gabriel Fox, and not a young Bigfoot that was starving and raiding fishcamps for
food when it was caught? Why did the military and/or the US government say nothing about him after
they took him away? And most importantly, why didn't they return him home? ..." http://www.adn.

1968 / 05 / S - Juneau-Herbert River, AK
A father and teen son had been fishing together along the Herbert River Trail, working their way
towards the trail head. The 14 year old teen approaches the trail through some brush and turns to
look where he had come from and sees someone walking across the river bar. He believed it was his
father and waited. 20 minutes later, the father arrives and the son asked if he had been on the bar.
The father replied "no" and that he had been walking along the river bank close to alders. The father
said it must have been a bear that the teen had seen. Teen explained he had seen something that
walked bipedal with arms swinging. When they eventually reached the trail head, there were no
other vehicles ruling out the possibility of the subject being a person.
