COUNTY: Price County
LOCATION DETAILS: See above
NEAREST TOWN: Park Falls
NEAREST ROAD: Highway 13
OBSERVED: On June 30th, 2018, at approximately 9:45pm, I was headed south on Highway 13, approximately two miles south of Park Falls in Price County, Wisconsin. It was dark, with my headlights the only light source.
In summary, while driving at approximately 50mph, an animal on all fours ran in front of my vehicle (2015 Ford Taurus SHO) - left to right/east to west. I nearly hit the animal as it came within five feet of the front of my vehicle. My observation was only a split second, but it left a very big impression, mainly because it didn’t make sense (as explained in the last paragraph). My wife was in the passenger seat, but was on her phone texting, and she only looked up because I swerved to avoid the animal. She never observed it.
Hairy and brown, I did not see the head, mainly because it was slumped down on fours, and the fast speed it was moving. My dimensions are approximate from my viewpoint as the driver
46” high (legs), 46” (long) torso = 92” or 7’6” if standing. (I took a tape measure, and immediately took approximate measurements after arriving to my destination five or six miles away).
I’ve been vacationing in this area since 1975 as a child. It was not a black beer (brown beer are not indigenous to this area), it wasn’t a deer, wolf or coyote. With this in mind, I’m left with a lot of unanswered questions, and quite possibly someone else saw this animal too.
ALSO NOTICED: The creature had very thick hind legs with long uneven hair (not fur) that was 2-3' long.
OTHER WITNESSES: A vehicle was passing by in the opposite direction.
OTHER STORIES: A variety of stories about Bigfoot in this area, as in much of the Midwest.
TIME AND CONDITIONS: It was about 75 degrees with a light rain. The last two days were very hot (90+ degrees), and it just rained very hard before the above conditions.
ENVIRONMENT: The area has slight rolling hills with plenty of woods with clearings. The north fork of the Flambeau River flows through Park Falls, with plenty of other rivers, streams, lakes and ponds in the area.
Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator B Breedlove:
I talked with the witness for about 25 minutes and he was very credible. As a recently retired police officer he was trained in making accurate observations.
I quizzed him on the possibility of it being a bear. He said the butt end of the animal was higher than the head, and that it was moving extremely fast. Neither one of those things sounds like a black bear.
There are plenty of food sources and water for a Sasquatch in this area.
Price County is known for its Bigfoot Sightings.
