Witness Observation

I was eight years old and we just moved to the country, that had lots of wood all around the house. We had a little camper I played in. I had several Chihuahuas and a rottwieller. Well one day I was playing in the camper and the dogs were barking running just a little ways from were I was. I decided to follow them. What came after was cute. It was a little fawn. I was going to chase it but [I saw] this huge, smelly, 8 foot tall, red mud clay color thing (as little as I was I thought it was a tall man until I hollered hey who are you. He looked at me and his face was so ugly and scary I knew then he wasn't a man. He stepped right over a 5'5 fence. The little fawn ran right under it. He didn't catch fawn. I was in shock and I couldn't speak so my dad told me to draw what I saw. He said it look similar to a Sasquatch. That deer season my dad was deer hunting. He had a deer right next to him. He was about to shoot him and he heard something coming toward him the buck ran off. Dad stood up and yelled you scared my deer off your on my land. He heard a high pitched sound like a lion and a bull mixed together and heard branches breaking over his head. He ran to the house and got both my brothers, they each got a gun. My mom called the sheriff and he thought it was a prank but they sent a deputy anyway when he heard those sounds he said call me if you kill it and left. Now it was dark the sun had set so they gave up. The rest of the night it paced back and forth making that high pitch sound.

Sounds

A high pitched sound like a lion and a bull mixed together.

Additional Observations

He killed two goats missing. He usually comes back every deer season in the fall.

Around the corner where my grandma lives they heard something digging in their trash. And the smell was like sewage.

Seeing was just me. Hearing was my mom, dad, both brothers, and sister, deputy, grandpa, both aunts.

Time and Conditions

3:00 pm - Afternoon Sunny, no wind.

Investigator's Comments

Daryl Colyer

This investigation was conducted as a result of an incident that allegedly occurred in Pontotoc County, Oklahoma, in 1992.

I talked to the witness about her encounter and that of her father. She told me of the experiences in a matter-of-fact manner. Her encounter as a child with a tall, hairy, "red as clay mud" subject changed her life.

The family believed that the subject stayed near their property; they would often smell an odor that they attributed to it.

The witness told me that she remembered her father attempting unsuccessfully to bait and trap the subject with a deer carcass. Her father hung a deer in a tree and used a cowbell as an alarm; he found only the legs of the deer in the tree the next morning.

The witness said that sounds have been heard often, but since the visual encounters that she and her father had in 1992, they have not seen the subject again. She did tell me that her aunt supposedly saw a bigfoot at the end of the driveway years ago.

In last few years, there has been construction in the area, and it does not seem as remote as it once was, nor have they heard or seen anything that they would consider to be related to the subject.
