OBSERVED: Me and my wife and two girls were going to see my parents who live in Cleburne county AL and my daughter who had not long gotten her drivers license was driving and I was up front in the passenger seat and my wife and other daughter was in the back. We had just gotten of the interstate and had turned down the long back road that takes us to my parents . And as we came over a hill and something huge and black darted across the road on two feet and into the woods about 50 yards ahead . My daughter said what was that I was like I have no idea , it was massive and very wide across the shoulders and itís head seemed to just sit on top of its huge shoulders, like this thing was taller and wider than anything Iíve ever seen and moved with unreal speed . My daughter didnít really get a good of look at it she just seen something big zip across the road , but I seen it long enough to see it was standing up on two feet and really big and I guess what stands out to me the most is just how wide itís upper body was big enough to know that no other animal could even come close especially around here, and itís height Iím just guessing but it seemed easily 8 feet . I still canít believe that something like this actually exist I mean how can something that big not be seen more ,you hear the stories but to see something like this that you canít explain, and you know most people will not believe you but I guess now Iím a believer
ALSO NOTICED: As I past where we seen it cross right down the road was a pack of dogs sniffing and going crazy like they smelled it or were following where it had been

Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Matthew Moneymaker:
I spoke with the father on the phone. Both he and his daughter saw the sasquatch briefly as it ran across the road approx 50 yards in front of the car in full daylight.
There is dense forest on both sides of the road so ithe sighting didnít last long. However iit was long enough for the father to be certain that the large, top heavy figure was running on two legs and its fur was brown iand it roughly 8 feet tall. He said it was definitely not a bear.
The daughter only noticed something big quickly crossing the road but wasnít focused on it like the father.
Here is the location near Abernathy:
