YEAR: 1990

SEASON: Unknown

STATE: California

COUNTY: Lassen County

LOCATION DETAILS: Near Susanville, Lasson Co., Calif. Just off Highway 44 on Pittville Road about a mile from Bridge Creek.

OBSERVED: I observed a "whatever you choose to call it" about one hundred yards away. It was a light to medium-brown color and I would guess it must have been about 8 feet tall. It was walking away from me at a fast pace and looking back at me over it's left shoulder. It had long arms that were swinging more than the average man's would.

ALSO NOTICED: Several of the guys in camp went back with me the next morning to look for tracks but it was too rocky. I was too scared to go back that night.

OTHER WITNESSES: I was return to our hunting camp after a trip to Susanville with my father-in-law. I had turned off Highway 44 on to Pittville Road and headed for our camp at Bridge Creek.

TIME AND CONDITIONS: I would estimate 8 years ago, but if you want an exact year my wife and children could remember I am sure. They remember that type of thing better than I do. If you are really interested I will find out. It was late afternoon or evening, it was still totally light.

ENVIRONMENT: It was in a clearing between Pittmille Road and the tree line (pine or fir). Bridge Creek widens into a swamp very near there, maybe 1 mile away. On the other side of Pittville Road there is an abandoned railroad track. There is a dirt road that turns off right there and cuts back over to Highway 44 and comes out at McCoy Flat Reservoir. It's about 6000 foot elevation. I don't know anything about Longitude and Latitude.
