Ms Perry, while stopping at Bob’s in Scottsburg I learned of your website. Last Tuesday on Oregon 38 at the Mills Creek bridge a man and two women reported to the police that they nearly hit a strange upright creature crossing the highway.
The couple was in route to the coast when at 5:30 pm a strange looking grayish haired creature walked out onto the highway while apparently trying to cross the highway. When the couple slowed they noticed the creature was injured or diseased by the type of limp it displayed while walking.
When I heard of this I thought of the crippled bigfoot seen there before. The police are aware that something is being seen by passersby in that area. So far nobody has come forward with any good photos of it though several cell phone shots have been looked at by police.
I work in a position where I cannot give my name out but find this most interesting to say the least. I can say that over the last four months three other reports came in on the same creature. Police don’t want to alarm residents about the reports. I was told they believe the thing is not a danger to nearby residents but are concerned about near misses with automobiles on the highway.
I find it strange and unacceptable for them not to at least post a sigh to inform people that it MAY be present near the road.
