PROVINCE: British Columbia
LOCATION DETAILS: 50°50'14.83" N 120°03'20.36"W
NEAREST TOWN: Kamloops
NEAREST ROAD: Todd Mountain Road
OBSERVED: 12:22am on February 12, 2018, I was driving home from working late. I live in a rural area that is about 45 mins from town. Cruising about 90km/hr on a two lane road, I had to almost come to a complete stop to avoid what looked like a 7 foot tall man covered in medium brown hair. He did not turn to look at me, just focused on crossing the road. He was fast, and managed to cross two lanes in about 5-6 steps. As I slowed down I tried to make out any details about what I was watching, but he was gone into the trees before I could determine anymore than what I've just described. Temperature was -18°C, and the location is just before the Heffley Lake rd turnoff in Heffley Creek, British Columbia, Canada. I'm a hunter and hiker who's lived here for 3 1/2 now and have never seen an animal like this before.

Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator MDJohnson:
This witness was driving home just after midnight and was required to suddenly brake for a 7ft tall bipedal and hair covered figure as it crossed the road in front of his vehicle. Of note to the witness was speed and manner in which the figure moved across the road and into the darkness on the other side taking only 4 or 5 steps.
