It was in November 2009 when I was called to a possible prowler. It was 28 miles west of Corvallis near Mary's Peak. The area there is farm/forest type. When I arrived I talked with the complainant and then walked around her double wide trailer towards the back yard area. Soon as I got in the backyard area, I noticed large barefoot prints in the flower bed next to a large window.
With my flashlight in hand I shined it around to a woodshed in back of the garage. As I did I spotted this immense figure standing next to the back of the woodshed. I put the light on it and was very surprised to see a very large built creature standing there looking at me. It was well in excess of seven ft in height and covered with brownish-black and medium to short coat of hair. The only places where no hair was, close to the eyes and and nose and the inside of the hands. Its eyes were deep set and appeared red in the light. Also I noticed its left hand was up next to its eyes and it had fingers, not animal paws. The nails were a thick chiseled type. The arms seemed longer than normal too me.
It looked to be some kind of cross between man and a ape. I started to back up and tripped over a small sapling tree and fell. This crearure whirled around and walked off towards the forest on two legs. Also I noticed what looked to be female breasts on the chest area. It was storming hard, so I returned to the front of the house and cell phoned for some backup. I told the lady to get inside the house and remain there.
As soon as another deputy arrived we went back around and I showed him the prints and told him what had happened. We escorted the lady to a friends house for safety. Now! I've been on the force for 19 years and hold the rank of Lieutenant. Well, I still had a heck of a time getting back to work. My backup didn't get that treatment because he didn't see the creature.
Thank you. That wasn't very long ago. At least you can say, that you've seen a bigfoot.

As a police officer I am damn glad that this is going to be exposed. A lot of us are tired of being too frightened to tell or report the sightings we have. I know the Curry cop and can tell you this has had a profound affect on his life.
Along with the many law enforcement officers, we too see bigfoot while at work in the brush. The current status of the law in Oregon stinks because it shuts us up. Nobody should have to go through that type of harassment over something like this.
On top of the embarrassment, we get by having to see a shrink, we hear the supervisors' laughs and thoughts that we're suffering from white line fever. I know what I saw, it was not a bear on two legs. Still I had to lie to the state psychologist to return to duty. This does not sit well with many of us.
We stop people every day and ask them to be truthful with us, while here we are lying to the shrink because that's the only way they'll let us return to work.
We appreciate your opinion so very much. Thank you. Can you tell us a little about your sighting?

I wonder has anyone thought of organizing an early morning drive to spot this animal. With many drivers on the road ... cameras ready, who knows what might be photographed. Just a thought, since these animals are often sighted at night.

A Hard Act To Follow.
�@Article from Powers White Cedar Day's April 10th,2009
That's what a lot of folks say about 77 year old Dale Saxton. Saxton has been on a hard drive for over 20 years in hopes of getting proof and look at Sasquatch. Saxton say's his interest peaked in the creature in 1973 when he was building a timber access road into the Siskiyou National Forest. These 17 inch tracks showed up one morning on a new road that Saxton was constructing eleven miles behind a locked gate."I knew no human could have put them there." Saxton has since retired from his road building company but is still searching for the elusive creature.
"Nothing comes easy in this life so why would Sasquatch be any different" say's Saxton.
He has used his own funds to launch his investigations into this subject. He has a team of four that investigate reports of Sasquatch/Bigfoot in Coos,Curry and western Douglas Counties. His youngest son Cole, long time friend Bill Emery and Kurt Hansen a former U.S.F.S official. Cole says keeping up with the "old man" is not a option. He's still too frisky on his feet! says Cole. The picture above is Dale Saxton at "Sasquatch Central" a converted mobile home he uses for his research in Myrtle Point, Oregon
Thank you Blue Truck.
Dale, if you just hate this on this blog, I'll take it off. However, I'm sure your fans will appreciate it.
