LOCATION DETAILS: It happened on the edge of town of The Pas. The name of the park where I seen him was Cathedral
park and the apartment that I was standing in was called cathedral apartments.
NEAREST TOWN: The Pas
NEAREST ROAD: a road that leads to a gravel pit.
OBSERVED: Hi, Iam going to tell you what I saw. It was Otober 2001 I can't recall what day it was but I still remember what time of day because I was watching the Simpsons which starts at 5:00 p.m. it was around that time so it was getting dark but I could still see what I saw clearly. I was standing in my apartment by my living room window, and I can see a back alley in behinded my apartment that lead my eyes to the end of the back alley that I could see the park witch is by a bush because my apartment is on the edge of town and what I saw was real because I know in my heart. I SEEN a very tall human like thing that looked about 8 feet tall hairy all over and of course brown fur. He was walking in the park coming from some where and heading towards the bush. It happened so fast I just didn't know what to do. I have always remembered this memory but now I have told you . I hope that someday we can figure out what these things are. thanks.
ALSO NOTICED: what I found that was unusual is that he walked through the park so gracefully like it wasn't scared of anything.
OTHER STORIES: People have told me some stories about sightings just minutes out of town a place called ralls island. A lady who said that she looked out her window because her dog was barking and looked and seen this thing that she said looked like a bigfoot and earlier in the day she racked her leaves into a pile on her lawn. this thing was rolling in the leaves like a child would if he was having fun. She was looking at this thing worried it would harm her dog but the thing wasn't afraid of the dog because it was chained up. So it stood up and looked at her in the eyes through window and got afraid and ran into the bush near by.
TIME AND CONDITIONS: It occured around 5:00 p.M.
It was evening sunset.
It was cool and just rained.
ENVIRONMENT: The forest he walked into was a pine forest. If you walk a ways into the forest about a mile it takes you to a huge gravel pit.
Follow-up investigation report:
I spoke to the witness, “JJ”, a young-sounding woman, by phone for about forty minutes. She came across as sincere and honest as she described to me the creature she saw from her apartment window. It seemed to be cutting through Cathedral Park, which is on the edge of the town of The Pas, Manitoba; a town surrounded by bush. She saw it walking across the park and into the bush.
“The steps he could take were amazing… because it didn’t take him long to get through the park to the bush… It was so casual… walking through the park like it does it all the time.”
JJ’s description of the animal:
“It’s not a human being or an animal… he must have been eight feet. Covered with hair… like the length of what a bear’s fur is. It was all one color… kind of the color of what a cinnamon bear is.”
“His arms were swaying… (It) had long arms, really long arms… I was shocked. His shoulders and arms were very big. His arms were the size of my legs.”
“It had a normal round head, like a human head, sort of… and it didn’t have a neck.”
“His legs were very thick, big – the calves and thighs thick…”
I asked for a clarification on “thick,” asked whether she meant they were muscular.
“Yes. Very muscular,” she answered.
On her reaction to seeing it:
“At first I thought I was losing it, but I saw it, I know it was there… Is there anyone else seeing this right now…? I’m sure someone else saw it… It’s really strange… nobody believes me… they say maybe what you saw isn’t what you think you really saw… but I know what I saw.”
On the possibility that it was a bear:
“A bear? Nope, nope, nope, a bear can’t walk like a human being.”
What about the possibility that it was a person dressed up in an outfit?
“Well who knows, maybe it was… I don’t know, but ah… they could dress up as a sasquatch, but they can’t be that tall… unless they were on stilts or something… I don’t know.”
Do you think it might have been a person in an outfit?
“My opinion? No.”
JJ told me that a day or two after the sighting she went to the park with a friend to look around. They saw no evidence of the creature – the ground was all grass.
“It’s a little scary after you see something like that,” she told me.
“I think you really saw one,” I said.
“Oh, I did. I know I did,” she said.
