Boy Scout Observed Young CreatureWitness: Scott (last name on file)
City: Perryville, Kentucky
Around 9:30 PM
Describe your encounter:
"I was a Boy Scout at a campout during the reenactment of the civil war battle of Perryville. I was 11, the older scouts took us out to "hunt snipes." We were walking through a field along the edge of a heavily wooded area in the dark, maybe 9:30-10pm, my shoe became untied so I yelled to my friends to wait up, I heard a rustle on the edge of the tree line. I shined my flashlight towards the noise and there stood a 3 ft Ewok. I stared at it for maybe 5 seconds then yelled for my friends. It wasn't till years later I realized a saw a baby sasquatch. It took someone telling me a sasquatch story for this one to resurface and spark my Bigfoot obsession. I had another experience years later, but nothing like the first. I still see its eyes."

Scott drove a few hours to meet me in person. I found him to be highly intelligent, sincere and very credible. He said the scout leader took us out to “hunt snipes.” As many of you may know, this is a common prank played on young kids. The goal is to see how long the victims would remain in the dark, with a pillowcase laid open on the ground, a flashlight and calls of “here Snipe! Snipe! Snipe!”
As the boys ran with excitement, Scott stopped to tie his shoe. As he was bent down, he heard movement in the treeline about 15 yards from his position. When Scott shined his flashlight into the trees he was stunned to see a hairy, 3-foot-tall creature standing on two legs. It was covered in dark brown fur, had a huge head and its large eyes reflected yellow. Describing the hair, Scott recalled, “It was very furry.” He also added, "The face was just a little lighter than the body, not light brown, but not dark. The nose seemed small and flatter than what I typically think of a Bigfoot. The mouth didn't stand out, lips closed tight. It was not hiding behind a tree (like most Bigfoot sightings), instead only its right arm and shoulder were behind the adjacent tree." It stood facing Scott. It had a flat face and it had shoulders (so most likely not a bear). Being an 11 year old boy at the time, it reminded him of an Ewok from Star Wars. Scott immediately yelled for his friends and ran as fast as he could. Scott remembered, "The other scouts laughed at me. I didn't tell my scout leader."
Charlie Raymond, Investigator
rural Kentucky in the 1940's work and money were nearly nonexistent
and with him having young children to feed it was necessary to hunt
for wild game or deer for food, one afternoon while hunting in a valley
along the North Rolling Fork near an area called Scrub Grass he told
of pushing through some wild willows growing along the banks of North
Rolling Fork to find an animal across the stream standing on two feet
and covered head to toe with black hair. Grandpa said the animal appeared
to be young standing about 3 feet in height, muscular build, he said
the animals face wasn’t distinguishable due to hair covering it.
The animal did not appear to be frightened and stood motionless. Grandpa
was so taken back at the sight of this animal he said his first reaction
was to shoot but he doubted his ammo being more suited for small game
might not bring the animal down and that he feared two things, the animal
might charge toward him or that there might be more of these animals
just out of sight in the willow thicket that grew along both sides of
the stream so he very slowly backed away from the animal and back into
the willows behind him and then ran hoping the animal would not follow
him. The next morning Grandpa took some men back to the area where he
had the encounter to find numerous human appearing footprints varying
in size on a sand bar and along the bank of the stream.
