Describe sighting in detail:
I saw a creature 7 ½ to 8 feet tall at Martins Fork Lake in October of 2000. This creature was on two legs and I was within 50 feet of it…everything you think you know about how Bigfoot looks is nothing compared to what Bigfoot actually looks like.
This thing was 7 ½ to 8 feet tall, and it was probably about 350 to 400 pounds.
You’d think that would be fat, but it wasn’t. It was lean, muscular and built…It had long legs that were half the body length. The arms hung down almost to its knees. It didn’t walk slumped over or hunched over…it was covered in dark, reddish brown hair.
It had a flat nose,Its cheeks weren’t exposed like you see on “Harry and the Hendersons” or anything like that. The thing I noticed most about it was it did have four fingers and a thumb.
After I saw it, I thoroughly believe it. I know it exists, because I saw it with my own two eyes.
He said he ran when he saw it.Cook said the creature he saw did not look like a gorilla or any of the familiar versions of Bigfoot you see in movies.I could hear it screaming up on the ridge,” said Cook. “It wasn’t like a howl like you hear on “Finding Bigfoot” it was a primate scream.”
