Paul (last name on file)
Date: Early Spring 1998
Time: 3:55 AM
Number of witnesses: 2
Describe your encounter:
“I used to work in Louisville and traveled every day via I-65 to work, leaving the farm at 3:45 AM central. Entered I-65 at Park City, Exit 48. Entered interstate, semi changed lanes to let me merge and a large, stooped, but upright figure walked across the 2 lanes of the interstate. Both semi and I in my pickup truck braked hard (semi locked his up). Figure did not seem aware or concerned that we were braking this hard and continued across the interstate, crossing from left to right, walked into the grass and brush on the south side of the road and disappeared out of our headlights. No other traffic on the interstate at this time and semi driver and I looked at each other as if to say "wth?!" The encounter was so strong that it remains with me to this day."
Not actual photo. Just the location.
witness was one of the first organic farmers in Kentucky. Paul is in
his 60’s, retired, college-educated, well-spoken and logical.
With the exception of his wife, he has never shared his encounter until
now. Her initially reply was, “No way, it must have been a person
or a hiker.” Paul was excited to learn there was a place he could
report his encounter.
Paul thanked me for the opportunity to share his story. He informed me that he was a former skeptic prior to this sighting. He assumed people were just making up stories about encounters. Now he feels totally different.

Another Big Mo Sighting?
Sighting Date: 10-21-14
Sighting Time: 8:43pm
Exact location: Undisclosed due to ongoing investigation.
Undisclosed due to ongoing investigation.
On 10-22-14 at 5:15pm, we met the witnesses at their home. We found them very sincere and credible.
The witnesses were driving home, only a few hundred yards from their home, when they observed a 9-10 foot tall, bipedal, “massive,” hairy creature cross the road. It was travelling from left to right at a high rate of speed, approximately 50 yards in from of the truck. It took maybe two stride to clear the two-lane road. There was a security light on a nearby trailer which backlite the creature. One of the witnesses has been an avid hunter his entire life and he is 100% confident this was indeed a bigfoot, not a deer, not a bear, and not a person. Too say it mildly, he was very excited each and every time he recounted his story with us numerous times throughout the evening. The second, younger witness was really shaken up over the encounter.
The most significant behavior the witnesses noticed was how it walked “leaning forward” (bent over) and “twisted at the hip” with each stride as it walked. It was dark in color with short, shiny hair. It was absolutely huge and quick with broad shoulders. The sighting only lasted a few seconds. It never looked towards the truck.
Nolin Lake is only a few hundred yards from this sighting. Dense woods, thick underbrush and deep hollows surround both sides of the road where the creature crossed. A possible old print was found back in the woods, but it was too deteriorated to cast or even photograph. At the sighting location, thick grass was on one side of the road and paved shell rock on the other side, thus not ideal for leaving tracks.
The family has experienced many strange events over the past month. They’ve received return tree knocks, heard strange howls, growls emanating from the woods towards their dogs, a possible gifting scenario, and items in their yard have been mysteriously displaced. Another family member had two sightings about 30 years ago only 10 mins away and one in Mammoth Cave Park. We are looking forward to interviewing him.
are planning future investigations at this location.

Witness: Robert (last name on file)
I received a call on 3-1-14 from the witness. Robert (48 yrs old) and two buddies (Richard and Brandon) were musky fishing in a boat on the Green River yesterday, about 4 miles downriver from the Green River Ferry crossing. It was a very clear, sunny day. They were fishing in Turnhole Spring on the south side of the river. Robert had just made a cast out into the river and was watching the end of his rod when he noticed a bigfoot step out from behind a tree. It took one big step out into a clearing, directly in front of a large thicket of cane trees. Robert watched it for about 20 seconds. When he first noticed it, he said he was speechless. He actually put his pole down, removed his sunglasses and put on his prescription glasses. By the time he began to utter the words, “Bigfoot! There’s a Bigfoot!”, the boat had twisted around from the current. He pointed in the direction of the creature but it was no longer visible, so unfortunately his buddies did not see it.
Robert explained, “It just stood there with its arms by its side. It had long black hair with hints of brown. It was about 7-7.5 feet tall and the shoulders were about 3 feet wide. It had a large head with no neck--it looked like the shape of someone wearing a Carhartt jacket with the hood up!” The hair was the same length across the entire body, maybe 6” in length. Robert approximated his distance from the creature at about 75 yards, so he could not see the details of its face, although the face looked to be the same color as the hair.
The three men maneuvered their boat over to the location of where the creature was spotted and got out to look for footprints. Unfortunately the ground was covered with leaves and moss. Robert explained, “All three of us had boots on, but the ground was so spongy, you couldn’t even tell where we walked. We took a picture of what looked like a partial heal print, but it’s a cheap cell phone and it didn’t come out well.” The men did notice a path of broken cane trees which were snapped off where it might have walked.
Robert ended his conversation, “I was never a big believer in bigfoot, but I sure the hell am now! And I’ll tell you this, there’s definitely at least one bigfoot in the Mammoth Cave area!”
Unfortunately this spot is only accessible by boat and due to the ice storm about to hit tomorrow, we are not able to travel to the location and look further for more evidence.
info: This past July 2013 between 1-3am, Robert and Richard were fishing
for flathead, about 10 miles further north on the Green River. Richard
heard two tree knocks come from the ridge behind them. Then both men
smelled a very pungent odor, Robert explained the smell as “It
was like a wet, musky, sour saddle blanket from a sweaty horse that
had been run all day.”

The Girl Scout Incident
Location: Mammoth Cave National Park
The KBRO (Kentucky Bigfoot Research Organization) was asked by Troops 1554 and 2664 (from Delaware, OH) to guide them on a bigfoot hunt while visiting Kentucky. We met them for dinner first at the Watermill restaurant where we gave a presentation on bigfoot.
Around 10:00pm, Dana and I led a group of giddy and inquisitive girls, along with their skeptical mothers into the darkness. I have to be honest, my expectations were very low. Guided only a few red headlamps we hiked along the boardwalk. I let the girls take turns making tree knocks and howls. We had a great time, laughing and just plain being silly—a tactic used to spark a bigfoot’s curiosity. Astonishingly it worked!!! After about 45mins I asked one of the girls to make ten rapid tree knocks (I called these distress knocks). Almost immediately we received a return tree knock, together with a whistle from the opposite side of the pond, a spot where we had walked earlier! Some of the girls were reluctant to walk around the pond with me to check it out, but I reassured them it would be ok. Once we reached the spot where we thought the knock and whistle came from, it wasn't but a few minutes later when something VERY, VERY, VERY large jumped on the boardwalk behind us!!! It scared the livin’ daylights out of all of us!!! Most everyone screamed. Fearing for their safety, I pointed a flashlight in its direction (we never turn on flashlights while we squatch, unless there is an emergency), however due to the winding boardwalk and dense trees we couldn't see what made the sound. After promptly retreating to the parking lot, we nervously discussed what just happened. I explained that bear and other animals typically don't tree knock, whistle and would probably not jump on the boardwalk like that. Although bigfoots have been known to exhibit all of these behaviors. I believe a curious bigfoot came to the area to see what all the fuss was about, whistled and knocked in response to the ten rapid knocks, and then finally got sick of our foolishness and jumped on the boardwalk to intimated us, as in a bluff charge. Dana and I went back early that next morning, but did not find a downed-tree, large log, rock or even footprints. I jumped on the boardwalk with my boots to try and replicate that enormous thud and I didn't even do the sound justice!!! I weigh 250lbs and what we heard had to be easily multiple time my weight! The troop leaders told me they couldn't stop talking about it all the way back home to Ohio. It was definitely the highlight of their trip.
Last minute instructions before we ventured out.

"Big Mo" AKA "The Midnight Whistler" AK
Robert (last name of file)
Spoke to both witnesses Robert, the driver, and Ricky, the passenger. Initially I had left a message for Robert to call me and he did. After his interview I asked him if he would please have Ricky call me, and in about an hour Ricky called me as well. Both witnesses seemed very sincere and credible. They mentioned that they "know what we saw" and because it was a fact, they didn't mind if their story was shared online. One of them has since purchased a gun and the other won't dare venture back to the location.
Witness # 1 (Robert)
Around 3:00 or 4:00 am they were driving home from work (in Bowling Green) on a country road in the Mohawk area (Mohawk Street). The car had just come down off a hill and as they came around a curve, and just across a bridge, the high beams hit this 7 foot tall, hairy creature crossing the road. It was approximately 15 feet or so from the car and it took only 2 steps to cross the road. The road is about 1 1/2 lanes wide. It was completely covered in dirty, brown-grey fur. It's knees and knuckles where turned inward. Its arms and legs were very long. Although powerfully built, it appeared more on the slender side, with elongated-limbs. The head was oval-shaped at the top, almost like a football on its end. It only turned its head towards the car for a second and its face was mostly covered with hair. Not much detail was noticed as it happen so quickly, but Robert thinks it had a greenish-yellow eye-shine. As they approached the spot where it went into the woods, Robert actually sped the car up and got out of there as quick as he could! They didn't stop and look. The next day, as they told their story, one of the locals said "oh, you saw Big Moe". Apparently many have had an encounter with Big Moe, including a tow truck driver, a nurse and a childhood friend. The childhood friend had told Robert that when he was a young boy fishing with his dad, his dad came up behind him and placed his hand over his mouth and pointed to the bank across the creek. A very large, hairy creature was walking thru the brush, pushing limbs out of its way with its forearms. The father and son quickly got out of there!
Witness # 2 (Ricky)
Ricky did not have as much detail as Robert. Ricky thought they both were returning late from a friend's house rather than work. He did also stress that it only took 2 steps to cross the road. He also stated it was at least 7 foot tall, covered in long, shaggy hair and walked like a man. Although, Ricky said its fur looked more "dirty" white/grey in color and he estimated it more like 30 feet in front of the car. He did not notice it turn its head and look at them because he could only see it from the shoulder's down. He agreed that Robert sped the car up and didn't stop to see where it went.
1:00pm on a cool, sunny day, Dana and I drove to the exact location.
In Brownsville, take Oak Hill Church Rd off of Main St to Mohawk St.
Once on Mohawk Rd, we drove down a long, hilly country road to the second
bridge. The forest in this region is very dense with many deep hollows.
The Green River is only a stone's throw away. Plenty of deer tracks
and groups of wild turkey were noted, indicating possible food sources.
Upon arrival, we measured the width of the road and took photos of us
taking large strides across the road. Being 6' tall myself, it took
me 5 large strides, opposed to the 2 strides both witnesses said the
creature took. Afterwards we spent the afternoon zigzagging our way
along this creek towards the Green River. A few questionable tree formations
caught our attention, but nothing definitive. While it was a beautiful
hike, we basically struck out as far as evidence goes. I hope to receive
some fresh reports from future witnesses so we can respond immediately.
While many reports over the years actually warranted a name for this
creature, a more recent sighting will help us pinpoint its current location
and hopefully find some evidence.
took Dana seven "long" strides to cover the span of the road.
She is 5' 7" tall. The bigfoot cleared it in two strides.
