Man describes possible sighting in childhood near Sandwich
(Show Printer-friendly Version)
COUNTY: Barnstable County
NEAREST TOWN: Sandwich, MA
OBSERVED: In 1977-78 I lived in Sandwich in a development called [removed by editor]. We were the last house in the neighborhood, behind us was woods that ran for a mile or more in each direction. One snowy Saturday I was home alone watching television. My parents worked frequently and even though I was only 11-12 years old I was at home alone alot. I was watching TV in our den which was situated between 2 windows. It was around noon and overcast.
My dog frequently barked whenever a car drove up. When she started barking this time, I turned my head down our hallway to yell at her to shut up. Looking back to the TV, I was startled to see a face peering through my window. To the best of my memory, the face was fury, whatever it was it only around 5-6 feet tall. I screamed and it made some kind of grunting noise. It immediately took off around the back of the house, running on two legs, and through an open breeze way to the front and into the woods.
To say I was frightened was an understatement. I immediately called some friends who came over to calm me down. After thinking about it for a while I thought it could have been one of my friends wearing a mask and playing a joke on me. That theory ended when we went outside to see what the creatures footprints looked like, we were shocked to see hoofed footprints. I never saw any sign of this creature again, but after reading what the men in Mashpee saw 2-3 years later, it sounds like Cape Cod might have a Bigfoot of some kind.
OTHER WITNESSES: No
OTHER STORIES: One in Mashpee, from your site 2-3 years later.
TIME AND CONDITIONS: Afternoon
Overcast, with an inch or two of snow on the ground.
