CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE ‘BIG KIND’.
In an exclusive interview yesterday a retired lumberman told of his epic six-day ordeal – abducted by a family of Sasquatches! Alan Ostman, a 64-year-old retired lumberman from British Columbia approached Canadian police three days ago after allegedly being ‘abducted’ by a family of the fabled Bigfoot. On a camping trip near Vancouver Island, he had found prior to his abduction that his supplies and food had been disturbed for two nights in a row.

The adult male stood guard at the opening of this cave, which was the only apparent exit.
For six days, Ostman was held captive in these conditions. “I formed a bond, of sorts, with the young male in there. Of the few items I had with me, he...
