Friday, Oct. 25, 1935
This newspaper article published in The Hammond Times in Munster, Indiana gives some great descriptions of sasquatches that have been repeated in stories in more recent times, including their ability to scale sheer cliffs.
The article includes this statement:
Reported Agile as goats -- The strange men, it was reported, after emerging from the woods, came leaping down the jagged rocky hillside with the agility and lightness of a mountain goat. Snatches of their weird language foated on the breeze across the lake to the pioneer settlement at the foot of the hills. . . . The climbed hand over hand up the almost perpendicular cliff. . . . People who have reported their rare appearances describe them as 'ferocious' looking wild men, nine feet tall, and covered from head to toes with thick black hair.
