Was that Big foot?


newspaperI have delivered newspapers for several years and being up in the early morning hours, I have seen many strange or unbelievable things. The incident I am writing about this time happened in 2010 and was less than 2 miles from where I lived at the time.

It was around 2:00 a.m. since I was on my way into town to pick up my papers. On hwy 74 between Huntsville and Elkins is the county line for Madison and Washington counties. Less than ¼ of a mile from the county line is an “S” corner that goes up hill and this is where I saw what I believe was Big foot.

big footI was driving along, being cautious for deer crossing the road, when I noticed a HUGE bloody area in the road, just before the road starts going up and around. I figured a deer had been hit by a car … more like a semi-truck given the mess in the road. I slowed down to see if I might be able to tell what had gotten hit when I saw movement out of the corner of my eye. To the right of the road is a road sign to warn drivers about the corner ahead and I was almost even with the sign. My first thought was “crap, another deer!” but that is not what was standing by the sign.

The creature standing next to/ behind the road sign was really large, standing on 2 legs, and covered in reddish-brown fur. I am not sure how tall the road sign is but the creature’s chin was about even with the top of the sign. The face was out of the range of my headlights so I was not able to make out any facial features but I could tell that this creature was watching as I drove by.

When I got to the top of the hill, I thought about turning around and going back to get another look at this creature … but I chickened out.

After I completed my paper route and was headed back home, I drove through that area really slow. The bloody spot on the road was mostly gone and there was no trace of the creature I saw. I have not seen the creature again, although I am pretty sure I have heard it. I have also heard stories from other people who have encountered something very similar to what I saw.

cell phoneThe really funny part of the encounter was that I was on the phone via Bluetooth to my best friend and I told her about what I saw when it happened. I think my actual words were, “Ummm. I think I just saw Big foot!” and she can verify what I have said.
