(Show Printer-friendly Version)
COUNTY: Okanogan County
LOCATION DETAILS: Hwy 155 from Omak and off on side roads.
NEAREST TOWN: Omak
NEAREST ROAD: HWY 155
OBSERVED: Two weeks ago my and my girlfriend were out hunting when we seen something running down the road. it was large and hairy and moved like a mother [It moved fast]. We seen it about 40 to 30 yards away and were already driving kinda fast. I am guessing about 15 to 10 miles an hour. My girlfriend ask me "what is that" I looked to see a hairy head moving along the road. I drove up the road toward the place it was seen. when I reached the place it was already gone. I grabbed my pistol and jumped out to look up the ridge in the direction it was running, nothing, no noise, nothing. My girlfriend was scared and yelling at me to get back in.
Most of the time you hear something running away or hear the hops of a deer running hard, but there was nothing. I backed up the truck to look at the road where it had run and it left no track what so ever. if it was a bear it would have left it's claw print in the hard surface sand. but there was nothing and I looked well. I could see how a big flat foot would leave no print. I asked her what she saw and she said it looked like a large man, she was sure it was a man type animal. you have to take into consideration this all happened in a matter of about 3 to 4 seconds, I mean the first sighting to stoping the car and jumping out. so it all happened fast. so you can guess that puppy was moving. and it was in a place he could not hide to well, no real buck brush or anything.
ALSO NOTICED: it is next to a cow water hole. I go there a lot to get some water, the water is sweet and the source is a underground stream. clean water, sweet tasting. It may have been drinking from the well when we caught it.
OTHER WITNESSES: Myself and girlfriend
OTHER STORIES: I have heard that at a nearby lake people have heard the sounds of something screaming around the lake. making weird screams. they said it sounded like a man who was drunk and large. I live in a small town so we all know what goes on.
TIME AND CONDITIONS: it was just as the sun was going down.
ENVIRONMENT: Pine Forest
