DATE: We found this in Nov. of 1997 in the afternoon.
LOCATION: Approx. 2 miles North of Manderfield, Utah, BEAVER county. Between the highway and I-15. At the top of the hill of Manderfield exit. Almost right across the hwy from Indian Creek.
OBSERVED: While looking for arrowheads with my wife and sister-in-law,
my wife called me over to look at this track. The track was in front
of a small cedar tree, approx. 5' tall. I am in the hills and
mountains alot and am familiar with differant types of tracks, including
bear. This was no track I had ever seen. The track had a similar
shape of a human's, but much larger. I wear a 10 1/2 cowboy boot. My foot
was approx. the same length as the main portion of the track. The toes
extended another 7" to 9" past that.The track was impressed into
the earth approx. 1/2 " I would go
on to say that it was anywhere from 8" to 9" wide at it's widest
spot and 5" to 6" at
it's narrowest.The track was the left foot.The weirdest thing about this track, was that it only had three toes. I do not know if this is common or not, but this one had only three toes.This track was well defined and I would say made earlier that day. I looked around further and found another track. This one was barely definable, but there the same. It was on the other side of the cedar trees. The stride was approx. 8' long. I know I probably haven't explained the way the
trees were to the foot print, but it was in such away, that it would have had to step over that 5'
ENVIRONMENT: The area is surrounded by cedar trees. There is a large mountain range (Tushar) just to the East. There is a smaller range (The Mineral Range) to the West. This area was near the bottom of the valley between the two. They are pretty close together.
ACTIVITIES OF WITNESS(ES): We were just walking around in a loose circle of each other.
