January 22, 1996: 4:55PM EST: Madison Township: This incident occurred along SR1004 and was observed by a State Trooper. The terrain was isolated, wooded and hilly. Nearby there is a stream, some cabins, and railroad tracks. It was a cold and rainy day with snow on the ground. Approximate temperature was 40 degrees. A tall, hairy, bi-pedal creature stepped out of the woods and stopped briefly, about 20 to 30 feet in front of the vehicle, looking at the approaching vehicle. It then crossed the road in front of the police vehicle and disappeared into a thicket of laurel bushes. The entire incident lasted about 10 seconds. The State Trooper had an excellent view of the creature and it saw him too. There was only one creature and it stood 7 to 8 foot tall. The creature was brown to a dark brown in color with long shaggy dog hair. The hair on its back was the darkest brown. The State Trooper estimated it weighed about 300 to 400 pounds. The creature had kind of a pointy head with a very pronounced forehead. Its face was hairy except near the eyes and the mouth area. It had almond shaped eyes the size of quarters (the witness could not make out the color), a flat nose, a normal mouth area, and the lip area was tight. It stood slightly stooped over with its shoulders dropped and had a barrel shaped chest. No unusual sounds were heard and no odors were detected. The State Trooper got out of his car and found 6 footprints that had a human shape with 5 toes, measuring 18″ x 6″. No castings were made and no other evidence was found around the area.
