Is the Huge Handprint Found in Nevada’s Lovelock Cave Evidence of a Lost Race of Cannibalistic Giants?

Did two Bigfoot hunters stumble onto evidence of a long lost race of giant cannibals in a Nevada cave? They believe that their discovery of a huge, charred handprint backs up their claims of legendary “Red-Headed Giants”.

In 1911 David Pugh and James Hart, two guano miners (yes, mining bat poo is really a thing) were excavating a cave on the eastern side of Nevada when they found something intriguing buried under 250 tons of excrement.

According to the men’s bizarre tale, hidden beneath six feet of bat crap they discovered several sets of giant bones, remains which many now believe belong to the Si-Te-Cah, a storied Paiute tribe of red-haired cannibal giants. Legend has it that the last remaining giants were burned alive inside the cave thousands of years ago.

As if being torched alive and having your race wiped out wasn’t bad enough for Si-Te-Cah, it seemed that Pugh and Hart were more interested in harvesting guano than preserving history, and many artifacts were destroyed before the Museum of Anthropology and the University of California were finally contacted for a proper excavation. Eventually, in 1984, Lovelock Cave was designated as a historical site and given all the protections that come with the title.
