I was in the kitchen talking on the phone with my sister and looking across the street at the hillside beyond the creek through the kitchen window. The dogs were barking so I was curious to know what was going on outside. I saw the bushes moving and I saw what looked like a very tall, broad, stout, hairy person, almost ape looking, with long dark brown hair. It was rustling through the bushes. The leaves were moving. I looked at it for about two minutes trying to see what it was. Then it disappeared. I was describing what I had just seen to my sister on the phone as it happened.

I felt excited and scared. I locked the door and checked for the twelve gage (my husbands gun).

I didn't see the Sasquach after that. But once in a while after that, my dogs would bark in that different wimpering way. Not their normal bark.

My sister was watching a documentary about Sasquatch in the Portland, OR area on the TLC Channel (The Learning Chanel) that aired on Friday, Oct. 27th 2000. That reminded her of our conversation on the phone when I saw Sasquach that day. She called me to talk about what I had seen because she did some research and found the web site and encouraged me to document the sighting.

ALSO NOTICED: The dogs weren't barking in their usual way when there was somebody walking by. This was more of a wimpering bark. Like they were scared.

OTHER WITNESSES: My sister was on the phone with me when it happened and I told her what I was seeing at the time.

OTHER STORIES: No, not until my sister told me about the Washington Park incident she read in the database this evening.

TIME AND CONDITIONS: It was cloudy and drizzling but there was enough light from the sun to clearly see that it wasn't a human.

ENVIRONMENT: In the forested hills across the creek from my house. Our house was in a secluded rural area.

Follow-up investigation report:

Location is a wooded, hilly rural/residential area west of Portland. Witness no longer lives at the location where the sighting occurred.
