NEAREST ROAD: 136
OBSERVED: This occurred in July 2006. I was on my way to work, it was approx, 4:30 AM in the morning. I was riding my motorcycle. I have a extra bright headlight on my motorcycle and I approached an area with a saw mill, I notice something squating beside the road. I slowed and passed this thing and was no more than 4 feet away. I looked right into its eyes and face. The hair was about 2.5 to 3 inches long, black and shiny. I know it was not any animal I had ever seen before. No Bear No Dog nothing. The height if this thing had it stood up would be at least 6.5 feet tall. I continue to ask myself did I just see what I thought I saw. I was to shook up to stop and double check of what I saw. I still to this day wish I had stopped and verified what I saw. Anyhow I still look for it whenever I am night riding.
ALSO NOTICED: No.
OTHER WITNESSES: No.
OTHER STORIES: I was talking with another guy I work with he told me about a time when he saw something while hunting he never called in a "Bigfoot" but said it was unlike anything he had ever saw. His location was approx 6 miles from where I had mine.
TIME AND CONDITIONS: 4:30 AM Fairly light night. Weather was hot.
ENVIRONMENT: Fairly close to river (Approx) 5 Miles. Wooded Area. Some Houses in Area.
Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Harold Benny:
I spoke to the witness by phone. RH described the area as having a cornfield to the North of the road and timber leading to the Green River to the South. He was convinced the animal was trying to hide in the twelve-inch grass as he slowly passed on his motorcycle. The animal appeared young even though it was large. He described the hair as coarse and slick as though it was covered in oil. It also looked as if the head sat right on the shoulders. Although he had seen movement from quite a distance, the up-close observation only lasted about five seconds. Enough time for him to realize this creature was unlike anything he had ever seen. He summed it up by saying that the animal looked too much like a human.
