(Show Printer-friendly Version)
COUNTY: Graham County
NEAREST TOWN: safford
NEAREST ROAD: 191
OBSERVED: I was on my way to work on a Monday morning. I had to leave a little early because of the snow and fog. I was leaving from near the Mt. Graham foothills headed towards Safford traveling about 15 mph. The fog was so heavy I could bearly see. I flipped my brights on to try and see better but it only made it worse. when i turned them off I saw a hairy man like creature run across the road. It had to be at least 7ft. tall. I couldn't get a good look at it beacuse it vanished into the fog. I know for certain it wasn't a human.
OTHER WITNESSES: none
OTHER STORIES: Not until I found this site.
TIME AND CONDITIONS: 6:45a.m. before sunrise very foggy
ENVIRONMENT: It was about 5 miles from the base of Mt. Graham.
Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator TF Zamiski:
On 3/5/07 I spoke with this witness and from our discussion I can add the following details:
-The biped crossed the road from right to left heading south just a few yards in front of his slow moving vehicle. He was stunned as he stopped his vehicle and thought how close he came to hitting the animal.
-Motion of the biped was described as a slow run with a slight hesitation as though it was startled and perhaps disoriented in the fog as it turned it's upper torso toward the oncoming lights.
-The animal had matted looking dark brown hair longer than a bears fur. Due to the thick fog and the short duration of the sighting he could not provide any more detail.
-This location is fairly open with scattered mesquite trees and washes/rivers about 5 miles from Mt. Graham.
-The witness wanted to return to find tracks in the snow from the night's storm but the snow melted during the day while he was at work.
