I asked her did she see it's face and she said she could only see the back of it's head walking into the trees, she said it caught her attention because the trees in that area didn't have branches or leaves on the bottom part of the tree only at the top, so she could see it real good. I didn't think much about it until we were on our way back home and as we approached the area where she said she saw something I noticed a sign that said, " Eufaula Exit" and then I remembered seeing a special on cable about Bigfoot sightings in Oklahoma and one of the places that talked about was Eufaula.

Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Tim Sermons:
I spoke with the witness and her daughter (who actually had the sighting). The daughter stated that she was shocked and amazed by what she saw. She then asked me if they were dangerous and asked for general information about these creatures, as she did not think they were in Oklahoma. She gave me details that can be added to the report. The creature was approximately 7 foot tall and very wide, wider than a man. It was walking into the woods and the witness saw the back side of the creature. The hair color was light brown and the hair was not too long (around 3 inches). She stated the hair looked like fur. The total sighting time was between 3 to 5 seconds.
