Man approached by Sasquatch, south of Yacolt, WA
(Show Printer-friendly Version)
COUNTY: Clark County
LOCATION DETAILS: Within a mile of Moulton Falls. I can show you.
NEAREST TOWN: Yacolt, WA
NEAREST ROAD: Luicia Falls Rd.
OBSERVED: I have often thought I saw someone run across the road while I deliver the paper. I often stopped to use the restroom in the same spot. I heard funny noises, but thought it was a bear or some other animal grunting and what not. Last night (about 4:30 AM actually, so this morning) I was stopped along the road looking over my route sheet, when out of the corner of my eye I saw someone walking. I slowly reached up and turned off the light. I put the car in gear, and looked over. What I saw made the hair stand on the back of my neck, and got tears in my eyes. It wasn't 7 feet tall, more like 6 feet or so - I'm guessing, because it didn't seem to be bending over too far to look at me. It was maybe 5 or 6 feet away from my car. I was so frightened that I drove off as fast as I could. I called 911 and they thought I was a nut, and said it was most likely a vagrant, or homeless guy. I don't think so.
ALSO NOTICED: It just seemed extremely curious.
OTHER WITNESSES: I was alone.
OTHER STORIES: Just what I noted in the paragraph above.
TIME AND CONDITIONS: About 4:30 AM dark, but light from my head lights and blinkers.
ENVIRONMENT: By the road, next to the Lewis River.
Follow-up investigation report:
I spoke to the witness by phone and the following comments are the results of that conversation.
The witness was working at the time of the sighting and was taking a break from his duty when something approached the vehicle from the passenger side. The windshield was covered with a light film of dust from the road, causing a reflection of his car stereo faceplate, which is blue in color with a dolphin screen saver. This is what the witness thought the sasquatch was interested in, as the screen saver was moving on his radio.
At the beginning of the sighting the dome light was on. The witness shut it off to see what the movement was outside of the vehicle. The witness stated that when the sasquatch approached, it was in a crouched position walking toward the vehicle, never taking its focus off the inside of vehicle. The witness also said that there was a small yellow strobe light on top of the vehicle that was blinking off and on because of his job.
The sighting lasted less than a minute and the witness gave a very good description of the sasquatch that approached within ten feet of his vehicle. One thing that was noticed about the sasquatch was the reflection of the eyes that were large in size.
The estimated height of the sasquatch was around six and one half feet. The height was estimated from the height of the Jeep the witness was driving. The witness watched as the sasquatch became aware of somebody inside the vehicle and crossed the road.
An emergency call was made and the dispatcher mentioned to the witness that this was not the first call to come across the board about a bigfoot sighting in the area.
"I never... NEVER believed in BIGFOOT before that morning. I was the biggest skeptic out there. I have a degree in science, and I still can't believe it. To be honest with you, I don't want to go back out there, but it's my job and will just not let it bother me. I don't think I will stop by the same area every morning."
