Eight-foot bipedal animal seen crossing road near Tete Jaune Cache
(Show Printer-friendly Version)
PROVINCE: British Columbia
LOCATION DETAILS: About 15 kilometers west of Tete Jaune Cache on road to McBride..
NEAREST TOWN: McBride, British Columbia, Can.
NEAREST ROAD: Highway 16
OBSERVED: I was driving west on Highway 16, west of Tete Jaune Cache (west of Jasper, Alberta) but east of McBride, British Columbia. I saw an large animal step out onto the road down from a steep bank. Even at that distance, 600 yards, it looked very large and I imediately thought what is a moose (it was the dark brown/grey/black color and tall like a moose) doing on a steep, rocky (but densely treed) mountainside. I thought that it was a moose walking away from me on the edge of the road at about 500 yards. At about 300 yards it turned to look at me and that is when I saw its profile and realized imediately that I was looking at a Sasquatch, as I had seen one years before in northern Alberta. At about 200 yards, it stepped off into the thick bush on a very steep downhill grade. At the same time another vehicle came around the corner. A strong wind was blowing; I was not able to smell where it was, nor were there any tracks as the ground was very rocky. It was a dangerous corner where I was stopped, and I finally had to leave as there was a lot of traffic. The Sasquatch crossed from south to north on the highway.
OTHER STORIES: I have read several reports from this area, in fact several years ago a man watched a female sasquatch feeding about 25 miles from this spot. Further west, in fact west of Prince George several loggers have seen, even recently, Sasquatches.
TIME AND CONDITIONS: 6:30 p.m.
ENVIRONMENT: Steep hillside near bottom of valley, about 2500 feet, between mountain ranges with peaks over 9000 feet. Rock outcrops and hard ground, with pine, tamarack and willow.
