Hockett Meadows...SNP....Bigfoot or What??

I've talked to alot of people that work in the woods for their living. I ask them about strange things they heard or have seen while being in the outdoors in Sequoia and Kings National Parks. I have a believe in the Bigfoot. Though, I'm also slightly skeptical and keep that all in mind when collecting information about strange stuff. The scream on this video is really eerie!! You tell me what it is?? I have heard the same kind of scream in Northern Ca. while way out  with Pack Mules, who were freaking out. I know that there is a Vast area, a kind of Bermuda Triangle of Bigfoot country, out in the South end of the park. An area that also encompasses Olancha Peak the area of a sighting in my earlier Bigfoot post. Mostly just wilderness, and its lonely out there! This video eludes to the screams coming from the East , which is just the area I'm talking about.  More on this to come...............
