Family observes a Sasquatch crossing highway

YEAR: 1997


MONTH: October

DATE: Thanksgiving weekend



NEAREST TOWN: At the De Bolt intersection near the old Forestry Station

NEAREST ROAD: Hwy 43 The main highway between Valleyview and Grande Prairie

OBSERVED: My spouse, daughter and I were travelling from Valleyview to Grande Prairie. I was driving. We were approaching the intersection that turns into DeBolt, right where the road widens to allow for traffic to merge off the main highway. We met an oncoming vehicle. As soon as the vehicle passed we seen it standing inthe middle of the road. It was crossing the road in a south bound direction. It turned 180 degrees and looked at us over his right shoulder and then took two steps lifted its leg and went over the guard rail and was gone. There was dead silence in the car. My spouse and I looked at each other and said nothing for about 10 miles. We were astonished and in awe. My spouse then said there is no way that we just seen what we seen. I thought oh my god we did see it. What I remember most about our encounter was the enormous size. He was gigantic and his legs were like big tree trunks. He was very hairy. When he turned to leave the road he did not run. He litterally took two giant steps and lifted his lefg and was gone. We went back the next day and took our dog with us. We did not find anything out of the ordinary. Over the guard rail when he left the road there used to be a small creek that is no longer there due to the twinning of the highway. When we went back the bank was so steep and the grass was so thick that we had trouble making it down to the creek bed. Our dog did not want to go down. We had to drag him with us.

After this incident I have had childhood memories of another incident in which I believe that I may have had another encounter that is close to where this encounter I am telling about today had happened.

I feel so priviledged to have seen a sasquatch. Most people do not believe me, but I know what I have seen!

OTHER WITNESSES: myself and my spouse, daughter asleep in the backseat. Driving home from Valleyview enroute to Grande Prairie.

TIME AND CONDITIONS: aprox. 9:30 - 9:45 pm dark with light cloud cover

ENVIRONMENT: Crossing the road where a small creek used to be

Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Adrian Erickson:

I have talked to T.T. on 4 occasions and have found her to be very credible. I asked her what color it was and she said dark brown. I asked her how tall she believed it was and she said that she had a relative that was 6 foot 2 inches tall, but that the Sasquatch was atleast a foot to a foot and a half taller than that, but much, much broader. When asked what she remembers most about the incident, she replied that it was the massiveness of the Sasquatch, especially the thighs and legs, and chest.

Her husband could not seem to accept what they saw, but T.T. said that prior to the encounter she had seen parts of the Patterson film on television and that when she saw the animal, she knew exactly what it was.

T.T. said that she was incrediably excited at seeing the Sasquatch and couldn't wait to get home and phone her Dad. Today she still sounds excited about it, and says there was and is no doubt in her mind what she saw.

T.T. and her then husband are not now together, and I was unable to contact him.
