COUNTY: Washington County
LOCATION DETAILS: South on Hwy. 45
NEAREST TOWN: Fruitdale
NEAREST ROAD: Hwy. 45
OBSERVED: I was driving south on Hwy. 45 just south of the Mississippi state line not very far into Alabama. I was driving my 18 wheeler and it was about 8 p.m. I had my brights on and a car was approaching so i dimmed the lights. After the car had passed by I turned the brights back on... I couldn't believe at first what I saw. I had never heard of a blonde bigfoot but there it was. It was 7 feet tall or so and crossed a clearing in the woods that was at least 15 feet wide in two steps with a normal stride,not running, just out for a stroll. It never looked my way. This took place in Fruitdale Alabama on a Friday night in February of 2008. I have learned that this creature has been seen for years close to this area.
ALSO NOTICED: no
OTHER WITNESSES: Just me
OTHER STORIES: I have talked with a woman I will not name without her consent who saw a blond bigfoot about 20 years ago. She stated that others saw it at the time she too.
TIME AND CONDITIONS: It was very dark. I didnt see it till I turned the bright lights on
ENVIRONMENT: Tall dead looking grass with pine forest on both sides of the clearing
Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Mike Brumfield:
The witness had just entered the state of Alabama from the Mississippi side of the state line. Driving in a rural area with his bright lights on and seeing an approaching car the witness dimmed his lights. When he flicked the high beams back on, in the headlights a blonde 7ft tall creature was beginning to cross a clearing at the edge of the woods. The driver was sitting up high in a semi, the high beams spread wider than the low beams. At that point it just keeps moving without looking up which brings it right to the road and across. The bigfoot was thin with long blonde hair about 5 inches long covering its body. The animal moved across the road about 200 ft. from his truck, headed east with a bent knee stride, it covered the width of the road in two strides. It appear to be crossing from one wooded area to another.
The witness spoke to a long lost friend a while later and when telling the tale, the friend’s first response was “Was it blonde”. It seems that people have been seeing something similar in the area for at least 26 years.
