It was around 1975 and I was living in
The last jaunt to the nursing home was quite isolated with a small wooded area; and as I was riding by these woods I could see that the Trilliums were in full bloom, so I decided to ditch my bike jump the fence and pick some to take to work with me. I was so caught up in picking the flowers that each one I saw looked better then the next and did not notice that I was moving deeper into the woods. When all of a sudden I could feel someone watching me, and the hair on the back of my neck stood up. Knowing I was on private property, and that I was picking Trilliums (a no-no) And I was sure that the farmer had come to tear a strip off me.
Slowly I lifted my head and was shocked to see an ape like human standing looking at me.
I was frozen with fear, It was about 30-40 feet from me, and it was covered in dark brown hair and I would guess it be between 6 to 7 feet tall.
When reflecting back on it I would add this, I don't remember any sound, or smell, and the animal, seemed more curious of me then threatening!
I guess I was hoping after all these years, someone else may have seen one in this area and after hearing this would also share there story.
