COUNTY: Cleburne County
LOCATION DETAILS: At the bottom of the woods next to the small cow pasture near our house.
[Investigator (MM) notes: GPS coordinates for where the bigfoot was standing: 33.651749,-85.523357
NEAREST TOWN: Heflin
NEAREST ROAD: Highway 46
OBSERVED: My husband and I heard strange sounds for 2 nights in February 2023 and laughed about how they sounded like the Bigfoot sounds on television shows.
The 3rd night at dusk we were on our carport looking into the woods that border our property in Heflin (Cleburne County) Alabama. We saw what looked like Bigfoot peeking around a tree at us.
We watched it for approximately 5 minutes as it appeared to look at us from the left then the right [of the tree trunk]. I dismissed it as being a distortion with the trees and wind. I turned to go into the house and looked back and distinctly saw what could only be Bigfoot running away. I yelled for my husband and he also saw it running away.
It had our hearts beating wildly and the hair standing up on our arms. There was no mistaking what we saw!
OTHER WITNESSES: 2
TIME AND CONDITIONS: 4:30 PM
ENVIRONMENT: Bottom of woods that sit at base of small mountain.
Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Matthew Moneymaker:
I spoke with both witnesses. They are very credible seniors who observed this bigfoot in daylight at ~150 feet distance for a few mintues as it peeked around a tree at them. They could not see the whole body at that point.
Right as the couple was turning to walk away the bigfoot began running away. The couple could see the whole body as it ran away back into the stand of trees.
Both the husband and wife said the figure must have stood approximately 8 feet tall, and its fur was very dark.
The intriguing element is the location, near Heflin, which is off Interstate 20, and only a few miles from the Alabama-Georgia state line. This is the third credible report from the vicinity of Heflin.
There is probably still a bigfoot in that area -- Cane Creek roughly 1 mile northwest of the Love's Truck Stop (intersection of Route 46 and Interstate 20).
