Eyewitnesses seldom come away from a sasquatch encounter with any documentation to verify or illustrate their experience. Sightings catch witnesses unaware and are often so fleeting that they do not allow for the opportunity to pull out a camera or phone. In addition, the moment of the sighting is often emotionally charged, and many witnesses describe a state of near-shock or fear that shuts down every other impulse. In the aftermath, keen to have some sort of physical record of what they have seen, some eyewitnesses have drawn sketches.
The drawings below cover a span of seventy years and are distributed over seventeen states (US) and provinces (Canada) in North America.
