03080002
Occurred January 15, 2000
(Submitted March 2, 2000)

Witness Observation

I observed a hairy manlike creature approximately 8 foot tall walking away from me. It had sticks and leaves matted in its thick reddish brown hair. The wind was blowing my way and I smelt a very distinct musky smell. I was very frightened when it stopped and looked in my direction. I had a gun but would never shoot anything unless it is game. I now carry a video camera but have not had an opportunity to observe it again. I observed the creature one other time in 1985 and it is still hard for me to believe what I saw.

Sounds

No sounds heard.

Additional Observations

It was approximately 8 foot tall, thick reddish brown hair. It was in a planted winter wheat field for cattle to graze in. Boggy creek runs thru this field. Sulphur River is approximately 2 miles away and boggy creek empties into this.

Time and Conditions

3:00 pm - Daytime, sun was shining.
