Witness Observation

My husband was on his way to work, on his bicycle and there is a long hill he has to ride after bear creek. He heard something with heavy steps coming from the left side of the road, my husband stopped and used his flashlight into that area, when he did that whatever it was started moving back into the woods and he could hear branches breaking. My husband said, he rode his bike so fast. Whatever it was scared him. It happened around 5:30 a.m.

Sounds

It was making a grunting sound.

Time and Conditions

5:30 a.m - Foggy. Wooded. There are brick homes and there is a ballpark across the road.

Investigator's Comments

Daryl Colyer

This investigation was conducted as a result of an incident that allegedly occurred in Polk County, on the Alabama-Coushatta Reservation in April 2005.

I have spoken to the witness about this encounter. The event was described as occurring in the early morning while he was on his way to work; he rides a bicycle to work. It is one of several recent events in the area that may be related to sasquatch activity.

It was the witness's impression that the animal seemed to be stalking or shadowing him as he rode his bicycle. He could hear much noise just inside the woodline to include branches being snapped and broken, as well as loud grunting noises for a length of 100 yards or so.
