Harlan County, Kentucky - early September 2000
Sighting with hairs

A friend of mine, Joanna Carter, saw bigfoot in Harlan county. She was traveling on rural highway 1137 when something caught her attention on the side of the road. It appeared to be about 8 or 81/2 foot tall. Its arms hung ape-like, but it walked in a upright position like a human. The creature did not make sounds, but stared at her as he crossed the road. She stopped and examined the place where she saw him, and found a patch of hair that the creature had left on a branch that he had scraped against. She has this hair sample but is unwilling to let a scientist examine it as proof of her sighting.

This description from the witness in a later exchange of email:

The color of the creature I saw was probably what you define as a brownish/greyish/yellow/reddish mix. The texture of the hair was long and nappy. I could not tell the sex of the creature, but I do remember slight facial features: the head was long and wider at the bottom and formed a stiff lock of hair at the top.

The chest was quite bulky, and was significantly noticeable, as the hands were in the form of that of a humans, only covered in hair. It was running, as a human would run, and appeared to have red eyes. I saw the creature just last week (early June) while crossing a country road.

When he noticed the sounds of my vehicle, he ran swiftly into a berry patch along the side of the road, and then continued running through what I assumed to be the mountains/woods of Appalachia in Southeastern Kentucky. Thank you for your time and patience.
Sincerely, Joann Carter"
