(Show Printer-friendly Version)
PROVINCE: British Columbia
LOCATION DETAILS: Alaska highway (97) at approximately Mile 91 reference point marker.
NEAREST TOWN: Fort St.John
NEAREST ROAD: Highway 97 Alaska Highway
OBSERVED: In 1965 My family was moving from mile 101 on the Alaska highway to Fort St. John BC (mile 42) it was around 6:30pm when we were headed up and around a curve in the highway (mile 91) and a large figure crossed in front of my Father's pickup. My older brother and I were in the back of the camper looking through the window at the road when we saw it. My Father, Mother and younger brother were in the front seat, and they also saw it. When we stopped at mile 73 cafe for pop, We asked our Dad what it was and He said in a nervous laugh that it was a Big Drunken Hairy Indian. We never spoke of it for, yet it would come up several times over the years, We would always laugh it off, and when were younger my brother's and I would refer to it as a werewolf, as about 3 days after the event we watched a movie on CBC, I think it was Lon Chaney as the werewolf.
OTHER WITNESSES: Five, watching the road, counting telephone poles.
TIME AND CONDITIONS: early evening
ENVIRONMENT: Mixed boreal forest, steep slopes along the highway.
