Bigfoot Found Laying In Road

Describe your encounter:
“I was driving to work in Madisonville, KY on a very foggy, cold, wet fall morning, back in the late 90’s. The time was about 5:00 am and I had been awake for some time and I was very alert and clear headed. The fog was so thick you could barely see the lines on the road. I was driving extremely slow. I had a small Plymouth Valiant which was a very quiet car and made little noise (I think this was very important in my encounter).
All of a sudden ahead of me I saw something very large just lying in the middle of the road, almost at the very center line of the road. I was so glad to have been already been going slow because as huge as this thing was my small car would not have had much of a chance had I struck it. My first thought was of a large dog lying in the road. But then immediately I knew it was way too big to be any kind of dog I had ever seen. I coasted to a smooth stop right in front of this “thing.” Something inside me told me to (stay in the car, don’t get out). It was lying with its back to me in a fetal position right on the center line of this small 2 lane road, and yet it was so big that I could not have driven my car around it on either side of the road. As I looked at it trying to figure out what this “thing” was, I flashed my lights on to high beams and it began to move.
What it did next amazed me. It did not put its arms or hands down to lift its enormous size, it did not roll over to get up, but in a smooth, fluid motion it just started to raise upright from a complete lying position to a standing position. This struck me as very amazing for its huge bulky size. Now it was standing up but its back was still to me and it was standing in a “hunched over” kind of stance, not fully erect. Its arms were very long. All of a sudden it swung its arms way out in an unusual extended fashion, one way out in front, the other way out in back and began to turn its whole upper torso towards me, but it never did fully turn completely to me. I think it didn’t want to look into my bright head lights. I never saw its face.
Then with that same extreme arm swing it left the road, headed to my Left, or driver’s side, into some woods right beside the roadway. It actually disappeared into the fog before I can say it disappeared into the woods, but the woods are where it was headed and it didn’t take but a few steps for it to be out of sight.”
Describe the creature in detail:
“It was not a solid color but it seemed to be a Blackish/Brown color very much like tree bark. My thought was how much it looked like a tree, or could blend in with a tree trunk. Also its hair was not all one uniform length but had many different lengths about its body. The hair was very messy, shaggy and very dirty with debris entangled in it (maybe sticks, dirt, leaves, etc.). I am still so amazed at how big and bulky this thing was. I have a son-in-law who is 6’6” and this thing was taller and much bigger than him. I would guess that this creature was 7 feet tall and that is accounting for it was hunched over, not standing fully erect. I did not see its face.”
Any additional info:
“I had NEVER believed in Bigfoot and thought that anyone who did was crazy. My brother once told me that he saw a Bigfoot years earlier in the county where we live, which is only 8 to 10 miles away from this sighting location. After my experience I now believe him. What I do know is this, it was NOT any known animal to me, and it certainly was NOT a Bear. I KNOW THAT I SAW A BIGFOOT, and I wasn’t looking for one.”
I spoke to Teresa on the phone on Tuesday night, 1/21/14. I found that she lives only 4 miles from my house. As we talked we realized that we both know each other from being out in our communities shopping or attending the same functions in our local areas. I also knew her father very well and even worked with him at one time. She is a very sincere Christian woman who related her story to me with absolute clarity and with a very vivid memory.
As she said to me, “you never forget this once you see it.” Even though she continued to work at the same place long after this sighting she NEVER AGAIN traveled this road to work. She went another way to and from work after this experience. She is adamant about the fact that she saw a Bigfoot and nothing else. She went from being a non-believer and a skeptic, to believing 100% in Bigfoot, all within this 30 to 60 second encounter.
When asked, she related that she heard NO sounds from this creature and smelled no unusual odors or strong smells (her windows were closed). The one single thing that was impressed into her memory the most of all was how this creature went from a lying position to a standing position so fluidly and smoothly. She still can’t get over that.
Only recently did she once again travel this road (within the last few months) and decided she wanted to share her story after all this time. She is not going to start traveling this road again on a regular basis, but had to drive by there one more time. She related to me that the entire memory and awe of that moment came back to her as clear as when it happened.
I believe her story completely and think this lady actually had a very close, unusual encounter with a living breathing Sasquatch in Hopkins County, KY.
Here are some related encounters involving a Bigfoot laying in the road. Other witnesses claimed to of seen a Bigfoot stand up from a laying or sitting position without the use of its arms:
• BFRO report of witnesses coming upon TWO Bigfoots lying in the middle of the road. It also mentions how quick the one creature sprang up from its lying down position.
• BFRO report of a Bigfoot standing in the middle of the road, then laying down in front of the approaching car.
• Oregon-Bigfoot story of a car coming upon a Bigfoot sitting in the middle of the road.
• Oregon-Bigfoot report where a truck driver comes upon a Bigfoot lying in the center of the road. Read his description of it....“in a fetal position, lying with its back to him.”
• Weird-USA reports someone coming across a Bigfoot lying in the road.
• The classic 1924 Albert Ostman’s story where he describes how Sasquatches would stand up without the use of their arms.

Don Neal standing where the creature stood. It was estimated at 7 feet tall.
The spot where the witness saw the Bigfoot stand up was just off the side of the road in some tall grass and weeds which were at my knee level, to waist level. The ground immediately slopes downward in a steep incline, dropping almost 15 feet into a ditch-line, which had standing water in it estimated around a foot deep maybe a little more.
The creature apparently went down the slope, up the other side (another
15 foot incline) and was crashing through the deep woods by the time
the husband drove forward 60 feet, stopped the truck, and jumped out,
thinking he was going to see another deer. As soon as the wife said
(I just saw a Bigfoot) the woods went silent and the couple stood there
several minutes remaining motionless and silent, but there was no further
I totally believe this witness saw a Bigfoot crouching beside the road
and it is possible it was stalking or at least observing the deer, which
the witness said seemed lost or disoriented (in her opinion) Upon the
truck arriving the creature stood up and instantly moved downward entering
the ditch-line and made a quick getaway through these thick woods.

Actual witness describing the encounter.
Describe your encounter:
“I had picked up my child from daycare and was driving home. I had just exited the Pennyrile Parkway and was driving on Hwy 2171 when I saw an unusually tall black figure standing a little ways down the road and on the side of the road right beside a road sign. My very first thought was that this figure was working on the sign along the side of the road because its head was up as high as the sign itself. I then immediately realized that this figure was all one solid Black color from head to toe, and that it was not standing on anything to work on the sign but it was actually just standing there. This filled me with fear and I felt goose bumps all over.
My next thought was that I had my baby in the car seat in the back and my motherly instinct kicked in that I needed to protect my baby. So I knew that immediately to my left was a smaller road that can be used as a shortcut to get near my home, but I very seldom used it because it is a narrow, winding, hilly road, so I stay on the more wider and straight road, but not this time.
Now as I was making this sharp left hand turn to go onto the small shortcut road I did something very unusual myself. I just stopped in the middle of the road. I wanted to see this “thing” better. I was filled with curiosity and wonder, yet I kept having this strong “feeling” that I did not need to go towards this figure standing down there by that sign.
So here I sit in the middle of the road, in a half turn, and staring
at this creature. It was in a frozen stance like in a mid-stride of
a very long step forward. Its arms were very long and its hands hung
down to its knees or even lower. One arm was stretched forward, and
the other was swung backwards, yet it remained completely still as if
it could not be seen.
Any additional info: I have now found out that this area has had other Bigfoot sightings and reports from the last several years.
This young lady is about 26 years old and has been a member of the church where I Pastor for the last 16 years. She has a very job that requires a good intellect and a sharp quick mind, and is a very educated and level headed person.
She holds many positions in our church and is a great organizer and
planner. I mention all of this to point out that she is very observant
and precise as is her daily manner and character.

Gap - Summer, 2000
One evening around 9 pm campers were disturbed by loud moaning sounds coming from forest in an area known as 'Lonesome Woods'. An 8ft. tall, hunched, hairy BF then seen drinking from nearby stream. Witnesses say that as it ran away on two legs over a ridge it sounded like a truck driving over the branches. Incredibly loud exit.
