OBSERVED: What I observed, occurred in 1987 or 88. I was 8 or 9 years old at the time and in Langley, B.C. Canada. The time was close to noon. The house and surrounding woods are still intact to this day. I saw a very tall, ape-like, brown creature with long hair, walking hunched forward. The creature turned and looked at me... and another man who had been living in that house as our tenant. The man ran to his car and sped off, but I could not, because my dad was working on changing the front door lock, and did not see the creature.
The creature ducked down slightly and entered the barn we had southwest of the house, maybe 200 to 300 feet from me.
The thing that sticks out in my memory the most is the hunched over gait, and the way it turned toward me and observed me... right in the eyes. It wasnt really scary, but I was frightened when the
ALSO NOTICED: it looked me in the eyes. for a few seconds. but made no other gesture.

OTHER STORIES: not from anyone I knew.
TIME AND CONDITIONS: sunny, temperature was pleasant. around high noon. visibility was clear to the mountains.
ENVIRONMENT: woods surrounding an open field, creature came out of woods and walked in plain sight across field into the barn.
Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Blaine McMillan :
I interviewed the witness (SN) by phone. He relayed to me that he had watched a tall brown creature walk across a field on his family's farm. It headed directly towards the barn on the property in a purposeful manner. Before entering the barn it paused to look around, as if it was checking to see if the coast was clear. The witness stated that the doorway was close to ten feet high and the animal's head was close to the height of the door frame.
It was covered in dark brown hair that was long and hanging from its arms like fringes on a leather jacket.
The witness stated he does not recall any livestock going missing or being found dead however on several occasions the family dog, a trained German Shephard, had acted strangely as if something had entered onto the property.
