Today, I was treated to several stories and reports about bigfoot. One of which I have permission to share with our readers. This possible sighting took place here in Kentucky back in October of 2012.
The area of the sighting is one that I'm fairly familiar with, as it is a location I have been in before.
Here is what Tony told me about the event:
"I worked at a coal mine doing some night watching. There was a pretty big hill going up the mountain and it was pretty rough. It so too rough for me to drive my car up, so I would get a ride from one of the workers to the top of the mountain. I would go in of the evening around 3 o'clock and get off around 11:30.
Once my shift was over, I'd walk back down the mountain to where I had parked my car. It was about a 30-45 minute walk back down the mountain. So, that would put me back to my car around 12 or 12:30 at night. It was pretty dark most of the nights and I would have to use a battery light to walk down the mountain. The moon was out on this particular night, but I still had to use a light.
Well, on the way down the mountain, on one side of the road is a pond. As I'm walking down the mountain, shining my light around looking, I see something next to the pond. Right at the edge of the water. It was big, I thought it might have been a cow getting a drink of water. I didn't shine my light directly on it, but I could still see it pretty good. I was about 50 feet or so from the pond. Then all at once it stood up real fast. It was the shape of a person, but appeared very muscular. I would guess it was somewhere between 6 and 7 foot tall. It was kind of a grayish white color, I could see it pretty good in the moon light.
I shined my light almost on it, but I stopped because it stood up and I was nervous it might do something if it got mad. I could see it watching me as I continued to walk off the mountain. It just stood there watching me. It was still watching me as I walked around a curve in the road. I listened for any sound that it might be following me but didn't hear anything.
It was still a pretty good ways to the car, maybe 15-20 minutes and I was scared until I got into the car. I can't think of any reason a person, without any kind of light, would be around that pond in the middle of the night. "
Thanks goes to Tony for the report and it sure sounds like a bigfoot was keeping an eye on you. I also want to add that this event happened in Harlan county Kentucky. It is also worth noting that these coal mines are in rather secluded areas. Normally, like this one, it was on the side of a mountain with no houses around but a lot of forest.
