YEAR: 1998

SEASON: Fall

STATE: Alabama

COUNTY: Blount County

LOCATION DETAILS: We live near Blountsville

NEAREST TOWN: Blountsville

NEAREST ROAD: County Highway 26

OBSERVED: Okay here I go.. I had a sighting about 16 years ago where I live now. I was walking my husband out for him to leave for work at about 5:30 am. He was facing me on the porch telling me bye and I was facing out toward the woods. I noticed 2 huge furry things sitting by a stump in between our place and the neighbors. It is a good distance. I screamed because I was scared to death and before my husband could turn around they both stood and took off back into the woods. It did not take them not even half a second it seemed. They did not stand completely up before they bolted so I could not guess as to how tall they would have stood. They were light to medium brown and fully covered in hair. It was too quick to make out a face. Very broad shouldered and while sitting the arms did go to the ground. I begged my husband to stay home that day. It scared me so much. Definitely one of those times you wished you had seen a deer or bear or something. To this day I can not bear the thought of my son going out into the woods. I have not seen anything since. Also we had heard of a sighting in a neighboring town of someone seeing a white one. Later on that same year in another county that borders our town as well someone else said they seen one too. (white). I had heard the Bigfoot team was coming out but never heard anything else about it. I have heard of 2 other instances from other people but 1 group confirms they had been drinking and driving when it crossed the road in front of them and the other. But in 2013 while closing up our chickens me and my husband did hear something breaking big limbs off of a tree in thick brush in the woods near our place. After I went in and left him out there he said he heard the loudest holler that was of nothing he had heard before. Not from the same place but was within walking distance. They say we have big cats that sound like a woman screaming so maybe one of those in this instance. Would it constantly break limbs though. We had heard the breaking the limbs 2 weeks prior as well it just did not last as long as this time did. I say the brush was thick because we could not see through it to tell what was doing it.

I do not know to believe her or not. .. I do not want to see another one. I am very scared of seeing another one.

ALSO NOTICED: But in 2013 while closing up our chickens me and my husband did hear something breaking big limbs off of a tree in a thick brush in the woods near our place.

We had heard the breaking the limbs 2 weeks prior as well it just did not last as long as this time did.

OTHER WITNESSES: My husband was with me but he did not get turned around fast enough to see them for himself. So just me.

OTHER STORIES: We had heard of a sighting in a neighboring town of someone seeing a white one. Later on that same year in another county that borders our town as well someone else said they seen one too. (white).

TIME AND CONDITIONS: I am hoping I got the season correct. I believe it was 5:30ish am and and on the cool side of warm outside. Plenty of morning light to see. No fog or haze either.

ENVIRONMENT: The place we live at we had lived at for around 2 years. The woods were untouched. There have been a lot of logging and digging around here since then. Tornado has come through and have a lot of trees down and brush has grown up completely where the stump was. There is a stream that runs in between our house and the neighbors and you have to walk down hill to the stream and then back up hill to get to the neighbors house. There is a lot of acreage of just woods back there.


Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator W. Gibson:

I conducted 2 long interviews with the couple and have come to the conclusion this report is truthful and accurate. The following can be added:

The witness was 90 yards from the 2 creatures.

The creatures’ shoulders were huge and about 4.5 feet above the ground in the seated position.

The hair was dull, not shiny, and was not matted.

The creatures were facing the road at almost 90 degrees from the witness and did not notice her until she screamed.

The witness emphasized repeatedly how incredibly quick the 2 creatures reacted and disappeared. Both creatures reacted at the same time and in the same way.

The creatures sprung up 180 degrees and into the woods, away from the road. There is over 4 square miles of uninhabited, thick woods in this direction, with hills 600’ above the valley floor. There is no hunting allowed on this private land.

The house where the sighting occurred had been vacant for an extended time before the couple moved in.

The multiple limb breaks on multiple occasions, along with the scream, could constitute a class B report.
