LOCATION DETAILS: Approx. 380km North of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada and 70km south of Grand Rapids, Manitoba on Highway #6.
OBSERVED: I was the driver of the vehicle and my cousin was the passenger. I was driving down highway #6 just nearing the bridge named "North Three Rivers Creek Bridge", when all of a sudden what I thought was man came out of the left side of the bush. I immediatly awoke my cousin and told her to take a look at this guy, the very first thing I noticed was what I thought were his clothing(black) and his "walk", both being out of the norm. I thought that this guy might not be all there, his walk looked as though he was marching. He made his way down the ditch and onto the highway and at that moment I without a doubt thought it looked like a bigfoot. His walk was so distinct, it took amazing strides with his arms swinging. It was covered head to toe in black fur and appeared to be without a neck. I was expecting it to look in my direction, but it just kept walking, heading towards the other side of the highway. As I was nearing, it made its way onto the right side of thew highway, the ditch. As I was passing it, it made its way in to the bush. I braked, but could not see it for the bush was thick. I was not going to get out and start exploring because I was quite shake from the whole ordeal. So I continued down the highway. In the five hour drive, not once could I stop thinking about what happened.
ALSO NOTICED: None that are known.
