Daytime sighting by teenagers on the edge of Carmacks
(Show Printer-friendly Version)
DATE: June 14, 1995
LOCATION DETAILS: It was in a new part of Carmacks that was being newly devoloped.
NEAREST TOWN: Carmacks, YT
NEAREST ROAD: Highway 2
OBSERVED: I was about 14 years old, when me and my friend went to go visit my mom in carmacks, YT. My mom didnt know i smoked so we snuck accross the graveled road into the bushes to share a smoke. We decided to sit in on a trail in the bush that led down to a little lake with me facing the road and her the into the bush. As we were sitting we both said we had smelt somthing really funny. It reminded me of a burning dump. I started to tease her, saying she needed to take a shower. Then she said there's a sasquatch, I thought she was joking. She got up and started to run as I looked behind and saw a huge furry man run across the trail. His waist was as tall as me, so I didn't get a chance to look up, all i wanted to do was run.
The funny thing is though is that every time I walk by this lake, and I can hear (this is only late at night), someone taking steps with mine.If I stop really quickly, you can hear somthing stop right after me. Some friends didnt believe me so i asked them to walk with me, and sure enough the same thing happened and i've turned them into beleivers.
Bigfoot sightings are very common in the Yukon. Ive heard of many stories. My auntie says that she was camping and she heard somthing in the bush and she threw a rock and the rock came back to her. My grandma says they like to mimic other people which might explain it following my footsteps. My mother said the same thing happened to her when she ran away from home and was staying in the bush. She said she could always hear somthing in the bush following her. This leads me to beleive that maybe they follow some families generation to generation.
ALSO NOTICED: no
OTHER WITNESSES: Yes my friend Amanda
OTHER STORIES: yes, there have been many bigfoot sightings in Carmacks
TIME AND CONDITIONS: daytime
Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Stephen Willis:
I spoke to the witness on October 11, 2005. The incident happened in the summer of 1995, while Debbie (not her real name) and a friend visited her motherís home near Carmacks, Yukon Territory. The house was about one mile from the main road outside Carmacks. Debbie and her friend were sitting in the forest talking about 2 p.m. one day in June or July.
Her friend saw the sasquatch, stood up, turned, and ran away. Debbie stood up and looked behind her, catching a two-second view of a running sasquatch from the waist down. She said its hair was brown with grey steaks about 1 Ĺ inches long. It ran across the trail and disappeared into the woods. The two girls went back to the house and didnít return until the next day. They looked for tracks but couldnít find anything on the forest floor.
The witness is a member of the original people of the Yukon and has a long family history of sightings.
