NEAREST ROAD: 175
OBSERVED: Me and my mom and her boyfriend were driving to Many, Louisiana and I was driving. We just passed my aunt;s house on 175 and about 6 miles down the road we were coming around this curb and we saw this up right creature crossing the road and when we got up on it I saw it's right arm and legs as it step into the woods. It was freaking huge as hell. I hit the brakes looked at my mom and at the same time we both said did you see that shit and I looked back step on the gas and got up on outta there.
I know what we saw it wasn't human at all and the arms and hair. I still get goose bumps. I no longer go out there at night anymore.
ALSO NOTICED: Yes not to far from there they were sighting in pelican
OTHER WITNESSES: My mom
OTHER STORIES: The next road over is Zwolle Louisiana and Finding Bigfoot was there already.
TIME AND CONDITIONS: I saw it at night me and my mom driving down 175. It was crossing the road and it was a heavily wooded area.
ENVIRONMENT: Wooded area ponds pastures and chicken houses
Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Matthew Moneymaker:
I spoke with both witnesses by phone. The witnesses no longer live in Louisiana. They both live in different states now. Both are credible. Both saw the same creature right after it crossed Hwy 175 at dusk. They were very certain that it was tall, lanky, shaped like a man but hairy, with long hair hanging from its arms. It happened along a part of the highway with few houses or development, but was right next to an industrial chicken farm.
Joe later sent me a screen shot of a map showing where the incident occurred.

Cultural note: Joe mentioned that he is black. He mentioned that when saying that black people do not seem to report sightings. I let him know that is incorrect. It just doesn't appear that way because the race of the witness is basically never mentioned sighting reports ... apparently because witnesses don't think it is relevant to the sighting incident. True. It is not relevant ... except when considering the demographics of witnesses overall.
When an investigator learns that a witness is black that fact doesn't appear in the follow up investigation either, for the same reason -- it isn't very relevant to the sighting. With that said, only a small percentage of witnesses (who submit reports) are black, so Joe is partly correct.
