Large creature dragging a dead animal crosses road south of North Jackson

YEAR: 1998

SEASON: Summer


DATE: Thursday


COUNTY: Mahoning County

LOCATION DETAILS: It was about a half to 3/4 miles leaving North Jackson heading south on Rt45. Bigfoot was heading west. It crossed the road and went into the field. It was coming from the farm across the road.

NEAREST TOWN: North Jackson Rt45.


OBSERVED: I live in Columbiana County in Ohio. My family alone has seen this creature 3 times in ten years. Once I saw him on my way home from work in North Jackson. It was a rainy night but I am POSITIVE about what I saw! It was in the light! I still see it clearly in my mind! The calf sizes and leg size, the color, all the way up but didnt get the face. It was huge and it was dragging a dead dear or large goat behind it. I was very scared but at the same time wanted to stop and get out to take a look. I slowed down but couldnt stop. If it killed an animal I wasnt sure what it would do to me! I do believe in Bigfoot now.

ALSO NOTICED: My family saw him 3 times. Read my next statement. We (5) young men saw him in the woods one summer night in 1990. We were Jr. in High School.

OTHER WITNESSES: Just me leaving work. I was rested. I flew home and woke my wife ina panic. I couldnt believe what I saw.

OTHER STORIES: Yes. My brother saw him on Rt62 by White house fruit farms. He was a senior in high school and just dropped off his girlfriend. He was driving down the road about 10pm and thought he saw a very large man walking on the side of the road. As he got closer he saw the huge size. he moved over and slowed to take a look. They both looked at each other. My brother spead up and it started running next to the car. My brother said he was going about 45mph and it still kept up with him. My brother freaked out and floored it. He got on the cell phone and called my parents. He was crying all the way home (about 8 miles). When he got home he was crying for his Daddy and my Dad had to drag him from the car and into the house. My brother hid next to the fire place for the rest of the night. They called the police to go out and take a look. They found nothing. To this day he has a hard time talking about it. He is a all-state athelete and very smart. He would freak over nothing. This happened in July 2004.

TIME AND CONDITIONS: It was about 11pm. It was a rainy night. But I am sure about what I saw. I had my high beams on! ALWAYS!

ENVIRONMENT: It was crossing the road. A farm on my left and a field to my right.

Follow-up investigation report:

After speaking and corresponding with the witness I have additional information.

On the night he was coming home from work, the rain was a light mist so visibility was still good. It had a dead animal by its back leg and was dragging it. He guessed the dead animal was a deer or a large goat, he knew of a goat farm nearby. He estimated the creature was @ 400 lbs. and 7 - 8' tall. The hair was light brown and 3 - 4" long.

The night in 1990, he and four of his friends saw a similar creature in the woods when they shined their flashlight on it.

The brother's encounter occurred close to an apple orchard. The bigfoot ran alongside the vehicle for 10 seconds.
