Near Pioneer Trail & Page rd.
NEAREST TOWN: aurora, ohio
NEAREST ROAD: Pioneer trail
OBSERVED: Rode my bike to the Audobon Wildlife Area.
I was 10, 11 years old, i guess.
As i entered, i saw a strange man walking south
toward the road, Pioneer trail. Maybe 50 (?)
yards from me; do not remember seeing lower
half of body.
After a short while, i realized this was not a man. I remember reddish (hair) appearance. Became
very frightened & left quickly. Do not remember
any other details about this animal's appearance.
Had no idea of what i saw at the time. Bigfoot
was an unknown concept.
In fact, never associated the experience with
Bigfoot until recently.
ALSO NOTICED: no
OTHER WITNESSES: myself alone
TIME AND CONDITIONS: ~ 2 pm clear weather
ENVIRONMENT: Forested area with stream & swamp.
