My friend from Kentucky was coming to visit me for the weekend. She called me on the phone and she said “Oh my God there is a giant gorilla on the side of the road!” I laughed and said “I think you may be a bit delirious, you’re seeing things.” I told her that it was probably black garbage bags piled up so she turned around to see what it was and when she got back to the site there was nothing there. I asked if she went far enough back and she said she did.
Now I have known her for about 6 years and in all that time I have never known her to see things that weren’t there or make things up so I have to question what it was that she saw. I know she had to have seen something but what it was I am not sure. The only reason I got to thinking it might be a bigfoot is cause the other night I was watching a show called “Bigfootville” on the Travel Channel and I thought that what she saw that night very well could have been a bigfoot. Well anyway thank you for your time.
Time and Conditions
at 11:30 PM – clear view; this was as “routine” as they come. After hunter encounters, the motorist encounter is the most numerous.
The witness claimed to have had no knowledge whatsoever of Sasquatch sightings before this. She only knew what her eyes were telling her brain; she saw a large, black, hair-covered creature on the shoulder of the highway that, when she first saw it, immediately caused her to think “giant gorilla.”
The witness was driving eastward on the highway at approximately 11:30 pm. She was approaching the town, and was probably within 15 miles. She did not recall seeing it until she was very close to it. The witness remembered seeing, just a few feet in front of her vehicle, on the right shoulder of the highway, what she immediately thought was a large or “giant gorilla.” In her own words, “it was really big” and it “scared” her quite a bit. She told me that she actually passed right by it, within “an arm’s reach” and it appeared to be facing the highway and “backing up,” as a pedestrian might do if too close to traffic. The subject appeared to be bipedal, and appeared as a “slumped-over” human all covered with hair, thus the gorilla-like appearance. She recalled no facial detail whatsoever. She recalled “black fur or hair,” and recalled a thick body, like a gorilla, with a broad chest and shoulders. She remembered with certainty the “broad chest and shoulder.” The witness had the impression that there may have been a “smaller one,” but she passed it so quickly, that she could not be certain about that. As she passed it, the witness was certain that the subject was upright and taller than her Chevy Trailblazer.
The witness assured me that she was not delirious, nor was she in a state of near-sleep. She also assured me that what she saw was an actual animal; it was large, between six and seven feet in height. The witness grew up on a farm; she was adamant that what she saw was not a cow. She was certain that it was not a dog, large cat or bear. With certainty, the witness stated repeatedly that “it looked like a giant gorilla.”
