COUNTY: Miami County
LOCATION DETAILS: Paola, Kansas
NEAREST TOWN: Louisburg ,Kansas
NEAREST ROAD: US-69
OBSERVED: It was in the Fall of 1991 and my sister Patty and I were watching Saturday Night Live. I've always believed in the evidence of the Fouke Monster and have seen "The Legend of Boggey Creek" several times through my life. I am the LAST person who would want to see a real-life Bigfoot. Anyway, we were watching television and our dog Sandy began to bark a whole bunch. There weren't many cars that went down our road that late in the evening (around 1 a.m.) and both Patty and I began to wonder what was going on. We opened the door and both saw a large and dark figure standing down by the mailbox (around 1/4 of a mile from the house) and we both kind of freaked. It was humped over and I began to instantly think of Boggey Creek and Travis Crabtree's story. We went to our parents' room and woke them to see if they had a flashlight. When we finally did find one "it" was gone. I didn't sleep very well for a few night in fear that
whatever that thing was would come back. Fortunately we didn't hear or see anymore. I did check out the road that night but never thought to look for footprints the next day; probably from fear of what I would find!!!!
ALSO NOTICED: Our dogs bark a lot sometimes yet, we can't for the life of us figure out why. I am sending this e-mail from Las Vegas (I now live with Patty's family).
OTHER WITNESSES: We were in the house watching television. Very
quiet inside and outside?!
TIME AND CONDITIONS: It occurred around 1 a.m. in the morning
