(Show Printer-friendly Version)
COUNTY: Pend Oreille County
LOCATION DETAILS: Very close to the US Outdoors Training Base, close to Ione.
NEAREST TOWN: Ione
OBSERVED: 7pm, driving from Nelson, BC to Spokane WA, myself & my girlfriend were driving a few miles outside Ione. At the same time, we both noticed something on the highway. We had to stop the car very quickly to avoid hitting it. It was quite small....maybe 5'2", 150lbs, standing on two legs, covered with hair. We have no idea what it was, but was unusual. We both had a really good look at the thing, although only a second or two long, the headlights were directly shining on it.
My girlfriend was driving and as I saw this thing on the road, I said, "look out for that....that.....that...that....mugwamp". Refering to the bigfoot in our local beer ads. I yelled stop...stop & she said no way and drove off.
OTHER WITNESSES: Driving, watching in the road.
CONFIDENTIALITY: No cooks please. I did not say I saw BIG FOOT. I said I saw something strange on the road. I do not know what it was.
OTHER STORIES: No, we live 100 miles away from there.
ENVIRONMENT: Close to a stand of trees on the side of the road.
