(Show Printer-friendly Version)
COUNTY: Pacific County
LOCATION DETAILS: If you're coming from Rosburg, Wa. on hwy 4, headed westbound before the bridge which turns off to the town of DeepRiver, Wa. Turn right then follow that road til you get to a stop sign. Turn left, there is an area to the right and it look like an old logging road. go along that road. The road is narrow, but not at the beginning. But as you can tell only one car at a time.
NEAREST TOWN: Deep River and Naselle
NEAREST ROAD: hwy 4 and old Naselle rd
OBSERVED: On the day after Christmas of 1992, I and my ex-husband were driving on the Deep River Mainline headed towards Naselle, Washington. At the time my ex had an old Mercury Cougar, so you know that the front end of the vehicle was pretty big in width. The time of the day was evening and it was pretty dark and the only lights was coming from the car headlights. And it was snowing, too. So as we were heading to our destination, we saw something leap from one side to the other. I knew that a bear could'nt of done that, because first they are in hibernation. And if they were'nt it would have taken more than one leap to get across that narrow back road, and especially in front of a moving vehicle. And yes it was bigger than a bear!
ALSO NOTICED: no, nothing unusual, but it was pretty fast like a blurr
OTHER WITNESSES: Yes
OTHER STORIES: Yes, another person reported shortly after I told him what I saw, he stated that he and a friend were in their vehicle at the beginning of the deep river mainland road, just sitting when something shook the vehicle.
TIME AND CONDITIONS: it happened at night, it was snowy conditions, on an old logging road; called the Deep River Mainline.
ENVIRONMENT: an old logging trail with dirt road and hills also some of the natives talk about hungry-man highway or road, known for it's many accidents. Before you get there, there is a old cemetary I believe it's a national memorial.
Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Scott Taylor:
I interviewed the witness and find her account credible. The sighting was of short duration, but the movement of the creature, and the time of year, make it unlikely that it was a case of mistaken identity. A bear would have run across the road, leaving a track line. This creature was bi-pedal and jumped a 7-8-foot-wide road in one jump.
