Crawford County, Arkansas, November 2000
Mountainburg in the Boston Mountain Range
We always thought people were nuts thinking bigfoot existed, but now fear
people will say I'm the one that is nuts. So I don't tell many about what I
saw, but am now someone who could not be convinced that he doesn't exist.
Hwy 71 is a scenic drive that starts in Alma, Arkansas and ends in
Fayetteville. It is mountainous with lots of dense woods, caves, lots of
creeks and Lake Ft. Smith.
My husband and I were delivering papers around 4 am in the morning. As we
came around a curve, we saw something large step out of the trees onto the
side of the embankment that slopes down to the road. When our lights hit
it, the thing stopped and swung its massive head and upper body around to
look and as it did lost its footing and fell over onto its left knee and
hand...as we drove passed it, the creature just sat there, but as soon as we
passed, it went back up into the trees.... my husband wanted to turn around
and go find it, but I am a coward. The creature was approximately 8 or 9
foot tall; it had long shaggy hair and appeared black. The hair hung from
the face; it walked slightly humped over, but was hard to tell since it had
almost immediately slid down and stopped. The body frame was very large and
muscular looking especially the size of the thigh.
