(Show Printer-friendly Version)
COUNTY: Knox County
LOCATION DETAILS: on a hillside, in a blueberry field at the end of a dead end road.on
NEAREST TOWN: Union
NEAREST ROAD: route 17
OBSERVED: I took a wrong rode that ended up as a dead end in a blueberry. As I was sitting in my car trying to decide the best way to turn around without getting my car stuck.(it was raining and the dirt road ended in a wet field) I saw something come out of the woods and start to cross the field, about 150 yards away. At first I thought it was a man,but as I watched it didn't seem just right to be a man. I have hunted in Maine at the time for over twenty years and have seen every known animal in Me. This wasn't one of them. It was walking on two legs. It looked to be well over six feet tall, slim, and the arms seem to reach almost to the knees. I saw no other colors but black. I watched it walk over three hundred yards across the field. It never once looked my way. Even though it walked upright it just wasn't right to be a man.No
ALSO NOTICED: I left the area and have never been back. And I'm not going to.
OTHER WITNESSES: No witnesses and I've told very few people.
OTHER STORIES: No
TIME AND CONDITIONS: about 11:00 am. overcast light rain
ENVIRONMENT: blueberry field, hillside mixed hard woods and pines
Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator John Perry:
On April 14, 2001, the witness added the following information:
Although the height was estimated to be over six feet tall, he could not judge its weight. However, he described the animal as well proportioned. It was covered in dark hair, and it also appeared to have a full beard. The animal was walking with long strides and a steady pace, and was in a slightly stooped position. Its arms were swinging, and they appeared long compared the animal's height.
