(Show Printer-friendly Version)
COUNTY: Pushmataha County
LOCATION DETAILS: [Investigator Notes:
3/4 mile east of intersection of Hwy 144 and Nokia Loop Road.
Coordinates: 34.5057208, -95.1215628
NEAREST TOWN: Nashoba
NEAREST ROAD: 144
OBSERVED: Driving down the road headed towards Honobia, I topped a hill. I was on a long downhill then a long uphill into a left hand turn. As I came over the hill, in the distance at the top of the next hill, something reddish brown crossed the road. It didn’t appear to go straight across, more at a diagonal from right to left with right being the farthest point left being the closest.
When I first picked it up in my sight, because of the coloration, my brain said dog. By the time it was out of sight, I realized it was on two feet. It happened in a few seconds. It went across the highway very fast.
I was late to my destination so I just slowed down in the area to look. Once I got to where I was going and unloaded my gear I went back and spent about an hour walking up and down both sides of the highway to see if there were any tracks to indicate what I had seen. While doing this a person stopped to see if I was having trouble and needed assistance. When I told him what I was doing his response was “yeah you get a lot of that here.”

Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Matthew Moneymaker:
I spoke with witness Daryl Trout by phone. He lives in Texas but he visits Honobia periodically because his friend owns cabins in the area.
He was heading toward Honobia from Noshoba was he had a glimpse lasting a few seconds of an upright figure the color of an “Irish setter” crossing Highway 144 quickly at 10:10am yesterday morning. It was going from south to north across the highway.
He was at a distance and could not estimate the height but was certain it was on two legs and moving quickly. There were no other vehicles on that portion of 144 at the time.
He returned shortly after the incident to look for tracks but there is not enough bare soft ground on the shoulder of the highway to create any foot impressions.
