Strange Bigfoot Trap has been waiting for its visitor for 48 years

(ORDO NEWS) — Deep in the forest of Jackson County (Oregon, USA) you can stumble upon a trap that was built to capture a live Bigfoot.

The trap is located in the Rogue River Siskiyou National Forest, about 3.1 miles from the California border. It was erected in 1974 by the now defunct North American Wildlife Research Group (NAWRT) in an attempt to capture the elusive hominid.

The trap, measuring 10 feet by 10 feet, consists of a wooden box with a metal door that can automatically close if someone suddenly decides to be inside. Well, the catchers thought, if it was Bigfoot.

During the first six years, the researchers periodically filled the trap with wild animal carcasses, however, they caught a few bears in this way, but the yeti was probably not interested in the contents of the trap. Maybe he was being caught with the wrong bait, or maybe he just didn’t know about it.

By the early 1980s, the building was abandoned, and the door was locked to prevent curious visitors from being trapped inside.

In subsequent years, the trap began to deteriorate, and in 2006 the US Forest Service began to actively repair and maintain it, turning it into a kind of attraction for visitors. And more, apparently, she was not interested in anyone.

Even to this day, it remains a popular destination for hikers on the Collings Mountain Trail.
