Alexandria, Louisiana, 1994
My story is not very exciting (although at the time it was). We were coming
back to Dallas from New Orleans. It was about midnight on a dark moonless
night. It was Memorial Day Weekend 1994. We were traveling on a 2 lane
highway, my wife (girlfriend at the time) in the passenger seat and a friend
sleeping in the back seat.
To our right, in the bar ditch was a tall, hairy figure. The glare from
my headlights lit it up as we passed. It was walking in the same direction
as we were traveling, so we only saw the back of the creature. My wife
did not want to turn around and go back as I was driving an Isuzu Amigo
with a soft canvas top that was rolled up at the time. As we saw it, we
both looked at each other and said "Did you just see that?"
I have had a lifelong interest in cryptozoology and especially Bigfoot for
30+ years after following the events in Ft. Worth in 1969 of the Lake Worth
Monster. I am currently a founding member of the Texas Bigfoot Research
Center and doing active field research here in Northeast Texas. We have
several of the creatures here in a close proximity to the Dallas/Ft. Worth
area that we are researching.
