Substantiation of this Report is minimal, at best; there are no published reports of encounters and/or sightings for Orange County on the BFRO website.[1] Curiously, those counties adjacent feature an astonishing number of published reports; San Diego and Riverside Counties both have eight, San Bernardino has nine, and Los Angeles County has twenty. Additionally, there is a sighting report from April 2001 on the Bigfoot Encounters[2] website, which took place at Irvine Lake, approximately twenty miles (20mi, or 32km) to the north. Another report, from April 2008, is posted on the Oregon Bigfoot website,[3] which took place in San Clemente, again, approximately twenty miles (20mi, or 32km) to the southeast.

Some historical evidence, mainly anecdotal, suggests the existence of EC in the Santa Ana Mountains, which range across much of Orange County, and which are still heavily wooded. The creature, affectionately nicknamed “Santiago Sam,” was first reported and/or sighted in 1924, with sporadic sightings since that time.[4]

The combination of physical, visual, audible and/or olfactory events described in this Report are as follows:

  1. The possible branch assemblies observed in the garden, amongst the trees and brush;
  2. The small, gleaming yellow eyes, passing back and forth along the garden wall;
  3. The large, white-haired shoulder, observed atop the garden wall;
  4. The additional small, gleaming yellow and red eyes;
  5. The direct, visual observation of a large, white-haired figure moving up the hillside;
  6. The large, vertical mass of branches which appeared overnight in the garden.

These factors, alone or in combination with past experience(s), may be considered sufficient to confirm the presence of EC [5] in Laguna Woods in the late autumn/early winter of 2013. Further investigation may provide additional information regarding possible habitation in this area, either permanent or itinerant.

A number of subjective events also occurred. While these cannot be considered conclusive, neither should they be discounted. Although it is reasonable to review the impact of non-objective stimuli in this Report, such effects, while personally quite vivid and at times overwhelming, are nonetheless nearly impossible to substantiate with any measure of certainty.

[5] EC, in this context, stands for “Elder Children”, as usual.
