COUNTY: Jack County
LOCATION DETAILS: 281 North
NEAREST TOWN: Jacksboro Texas
NEAREST ROAD: North 281
OBSERVED: I was driving to Wichita Falls Texas with my family. I was looking out the window and saw this big black figure running fast on two legs. It ran off a hill into a little valley. It was dark black, had long arms, running way too fast for a person, black fur, 7 to 8 feet tall, wide shoulders, had a long neck. I couldn't see its face, but I saw its head and it was kind of oval. I saw it at least 4 to 5 seconds and then it disappeared into the trees.
OTHER WITNESSES: No, I was the only one who saw it.
OTHER STORIES: No
TIME AND CONDITIONS: Around 11:30am, 90s temperature,really sunny
ENVIRONMENT: It was down in a low spot and there was a creek nearby. The terrain was rocky and hilly and with a lot of large oak trees and a game ranch. There were quite a few houses around and was right beside the highway.
Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Gary Christensen:
I met with the witness and his mother. He is a young teenage boy and has the reputation from a family friend as being very well grounded and not prone to fantasy. He was very forthcoming with me and his mother said that his reaction to what he saw startled her at the time. I felt he was quite credible in describing what he saw, even though it was only for a few seconds.
I visited the location of the sighting. The creature was described as running parallel to the highway, with the vehicles closest approach being about 50 yards. The witness said he was amazed at how fast and smoothly it ran, and said that no human could run that fast over that rocky, uneven terrain.
