Date: First week in October, 2013
Time: Between 9:30 and 10:00 at night
Where: 25 acre farm with barn and outbuildings North of Lawerence, Kansas
Who: Married couple sitting on their porch
What: An 8-9 ft. tall, bi-pedal being with dingy grey hair, conical head and glowing yellow/gold eyes.
They heard something walking across the field in front of them, and the wife saw “something big” moving very fast going west to east, approximately 20 yards away. The area had been experiencing break-ins recently, so her husband immediately jumped into action thinking someone might be trying to break into their outbuilding.. He ran into their home and brought out a hunting spotlight, a shotgun, which he handed to his wife, and an AR-15.
She stayed on the porch and started shining the high powered light. She discovered the creature at a lone tree, where it had stopped and squatted down against the tree. The witness believed it had stopped when it heard the door slam. Her husband ran down the driveway trying to cut the "person" off at a 90 degree angle. He was shouting, “Whoever is out there.....”!
They both got a good look at the creature, as once it was spotlighted, it remained very still. It had crouched down at the base of the tree with it's arms around its bent knees. From the height of the lowest branches, they determined it was 5 ft tall when squatting, and 8-9 ft. tall when standing. It's hair was a dirty, matted, dingy grey color. In the flashlight's beam, the eyes were huge and glowing a bright, shiny, yellow/gold. She described the shoulders as being very straight and broad, "like a plastic coat hanger". She described the top of the head to be conical. The hairline started right over the eyebrows, with the direction of the hair going backwards towards the top of the head. The hair length on the head was 3 to 4 inches. She decribed the eyes, nose and mouth as having no hair, and the skin to look black. It had prominent cheekbones, and a "goatee" type beard. It's arms were very long and totally covered with hair, except for the fist and fingers. The Bigfoot was holding a big wood rat in one hand.
The couple had been yelling back and forth to each other while they were observing the creature and the husband had gotten closer. Then suddenly the creature stood up, and bolted from the tree into the heavy woods. Between the tree and the woods, the grass was waist high to the couple, but only knee high to the sasquatch. This helped them gauge the height again. The entire time she had the light on the creature, was approxingmately 15-20 seconds. The entire ordeal, from the time of seeing movement, to the creature disappearing into the woods, was no more than 2 minutes. The couple are both former military, and very familiar with the local fauna. They had a very clear view of the sasquatch and know it could not be mistaken for anything other than what it was.
She said the thing that stuck with them the most, and literally haunted them.... Was the speed with which it moved. She said, "It scared them both to death".
