YEAR: 2004

SEASON: Summer

MONTH: August

DATE: 21

STATE: Washington

COUNTY: Chelan County

LOCATION DETAILS: Walked across Highway 2 from right to left. I was heading East

NEAREST TOWN: Levenworth

NEAREST ROAD: Walked across Highway 2

OBSERVED: August 7th between 10:00 and ll:00 AM. Saturday. as driving on Highway 2 toward Levenworth. I was about 10 minutes out of the town. The car in front of me saw it first. He had to stop his car or he would have hit it. Then, I stopped my car behind the first car. The animal came from the right and was on the left side of the road, I only saw his back. He was dark brown with golden highlights (from the sun shining on the coat). He then walked into the bushes on my left side of the road. I didn't report it at the time because I didn't really believe it. But, after looking at pictures of bears (on the net). I realized what I saw was too tall and too thin to be a bear. My family said I should write.


OTHER WITNESSES: I was alone in my car. There was a car in front of me, but, I didn't get a license. I was too busy looking at the animal.



ENVIRONMENT: Pine forest. No drop offs. It was green on both sides. A sunny day
