Woody Forest lining the side of the highway,
Tall grassy areas, Rocky Mountains
To start with we don't know exactly what it
was we saw that night. However we both saw it and after finding this site
and reading some of the sightings we now belive what we saw was possibly
a Big Foot. We were driving down the highway, it was dusk. There
were lots of shadows due to the time of day. We pulled over to take a picture
of some wildlife and the mountains. The wildlife didn't mind us they kept
on as they were. After about 20 minutes of talking and watching we heard
a terrifying scream/howl. It wasn't like anything we had ever heard! Definitely
not human or any other animal call we have ever heard. All the wildlife
left as thought they were startled. We decided it was time to leave as
well, if the animals were that spooked by the scream/howl then we thought
it would be best to leave too. Just as we got back into the car we
heard the scream a second time. We began to drive away slowly (gaining
speed) and talking about the scream. My husband looked into the rear view
mirrors and saw some birch trees waving back and forth I then looked as
well. Then something came running out of the tree line it stopped and looked
at us for a moment and then with what seemed like great speed and maybe
2-3 leaps crossed the road and was gone into the trees again. It
was definitely on two legs and covered in dark hair. We were only about
25 feet away when it came into our view. Although I cannot say for sure
what it was we both saw it and have never seen anything like it before
or after. It seemed to have great Height and speed. Far to quick to be
a Human but definitely had the body structure of one. Needless to say we
got out of there quick!
Activities of Witness:
Watching elk graze and talking with each other.
Taking the odd picture of the Elk. Car was turned off while we were there.
Description of Creature:
It was about 6-7 feet tall, dark in color.
Seemed to covered in hair from head to toe. Too far away and lighting was
too poor to see any detail.
What ever the animal was we don't know but
we are certain it was not any animal we have ever seen and could not have
been confused with a bear or deer (or any other animal of that shape and
Other (Informational or Encounter
History in the General Area) Notes:
I have read of some encounters near and around
Mt. Robson British Columbia. We were about 3-4 hours from there on Alberta
side of the Rockies. Other than that I am unsure if there have been any
other sightings in the area.
Additional Notes and or Follow
up Comments: After reading the report
my husband realized I had forgot to mention the odor we noticed in the
air. There was a slight breeze and it was carrying a foul smell almost
comparable to body odor. We hadn't paid any attention to the smell thinking
it was probably just the Elk. Although it did seem to have gotten stronger
closer to the time we decided to leave.
