Daytime road crossing near Forks
(Show Printer-friendly Version)
COUNTY: Clallam County
NEAREST TOWN: Forks Washington
NEAREST ROAD: LaPush Rd
OBSERVED: The sighting was the creature crossing the LaPush Road. We were shocked and do not recall the exact mile marker closest. However, it was on a 90 degree (or close to) turn in the road.
ALSO NOTICED: The area that the creature entered was so thick it would be hard to enter, however, it had no problems. Not only this but off the road there are large ditches a person would have to jump. This was agile, tall and took 2 steps that took him off the road and into the woods. The stride was sooo long!
OTHER WITNESSES: Yes. We know that at least two other persons other than in our car saw the creature because everyone was driving oddly as to not hit it. There were three in our car. I saw the creature, the driver also but not as detailed as he was defensive driving because of the chaos.
OTHER STORIES: Yes. My spouse is a hunter that has smelled him. I have another person that was in my life that claimed a sound they experienced they attributed to this creature.
One of my children at age 8 told me they saw one in a logged off near dusk one evening on 101 from Port Angeles to Forks WA.
We live in an area with a multitude of reported sightings.
I never ruled it out this forest is vast. It would take ego to claim we are familiar with ALL possible wildlife out there.
Now I KNOW...
TIME AND CONDITIONS: Mid morning aprox 10am. Weather was clear, warm with edge of season change felt, but sunny.
ENVIRONMENT: The creature was coming from a "logged off." The logging was not recent there was light underbrush starting but mainly open. Across the road the creature stepped off paved road and into very thick underbrush and woods. It was extremely heavy underbrush. It was morning and sunny, and clear.
Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Ghee Bouche':
I spoke to the main witness to the incident, who was very forth coming about the experience and stated that the most noted aspect of the sighting was the fluidity of the creature's motion across the road and its ability to clear the road in 3 steps. She estimated the individual of interest to be between 8.5 and 9 ft tall and having cinnamon color hair with darker hair on the ridge of the back and elbows. It appeared to be a medium aged slender male from her observations. She also observed 2 other cars that swerved to miss the crossing incident and subsequently caused her husband who was driving, to do the same.
Here is her sketch:
