COUNTY: Klamath County

NEAREST ROAD: Hwy 138
OBSERVED: Date: 09/19/2004
Time: Approx. 6:00 PM
Conditions: Partly Cloudy w/ clear visibility
Location: About one mile or less from Cascade Summit Pass on Hwy 138.
I had spent the weekend visiting my kids in Ashland and was returning home to Redmond. I was traveling on a very straight section of 138 East of the pass when I saw a large very dark humanoid figure appear out of the woods and very quickly run (great strides) across the roadway and disappear into the woods to the south before I could get even to it. It was maybe 50 yards ahead at first sight. Though it was clear, it appeared to be shadowed from head to foot.
ALSO NOTICED: Goose bumps!
OTHER WITNESSES: I was alone.
OTHER STORIES: I just read of a sighting nearby recently where a hunter was screamed at.
TIME AND CONDITIONS: 6PM
ENVIRONMENT: See first paragraph
Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Dr. Wolf H. Fahrenbach:
As described by the eye witness, the creature walked at an accelerated pace across the highway without actually running. It appeared black from head to toe.
