|Was this a Bigfoot?|
The person that submitted this sighting, did not leave a name or a working email and stated that they did not want their name published or contacted about what they saw. This should not be looked at in a bad way. Many reports and witnesses we talk to do not want the extra attention or the ridicule that goes along with saying "I seen a Bigfoot".
I believe the yellow circle in the picture above is the exact area where this even happened. This is a very recent event.
Here is the report.

Describe sighting in detail:
I was driving home, going along the Owthorpe Road, from a Christmas party and was heading towards the A46. I was approaching a corner, the one just before the Eton Park nursing home, when the headlights of my car highlighted something stood in a layby.
It was about 6 foot tall and covered in reddy brownish hair. My whole family saw it. It had dark eyes and had a human face.
I don't want any help but felt that I should share what we saw in case there was a large cat on the loose. This is the only thing I can think of to explain it. My son says it was a monster. I don't want my name or email shown please.

So, I went to google maps to scope out the general area. The submitter gave great landmark information and I was able to find what I think is the exact spot. I guess, I might need to let everyone know what a "layby" is, as that is not a common term for most Americans. A layby is just an area at the side of a road where vehicles may pull off the road and stop.
Using the information in the report I think this is the exact spot in the picture below.
This is the slight curve just before the Eton Park nursing home. There is a layby on the right, this is were the creature would have been standing according to the report. This tends to lend credibility to the report.
It was cool getting a report from Nottingham, I have a friend or two in that area that I have know for many years.
The person reporting this calls it a large cat, I guess it was their way of trying making sense of what they seen. This truly sounds more like a bigfoot than a large cat.
Just one more quick note, If you are submitting a report I normally do not use the full name or email address, unless it is a known researcher or someone who don't mind. But please always include a working email because normally we might have a question or two about the creature or location.
In my mind, this sound like a pretty good report.
