Bigfoot Sighting in Perry County
I recently received another Kentucky bigfoot sighting report. I was contacted by Jason on Facebook messenger and he wanted to tell me about a bigfoot sighting and encounter he had in Perry county Kentucky.
Perry county has a total area of 343 square miles, much of which is lush green mountains. The Daniel Boone National forest also stretches into Perry county. In other words, Perry county is an idea place for a creature such as Bigfoot. It has lots of forest land and a small mostly concentrated population.
Here are the details of the sighting and the messages between Jason and myself.
Jason Bigfoot sighting - Perry County, KY
Received on 11/19/19
last name on file.
- START -
J: Hey Thomas, I had an encounter with a Bigfoot in 1990.
TM: hey... where did you have the encounter ?
J: In Perry county,Ky
TM: that's not too far from me
J: I was probably 50 feet from a creature that supposedly doesn't exist.
TM: what time of year was it ?
J: I saw it before it saw me, the wind was blowing the leaves on the trees, we met on a game trail.
Not sure how to word this, but we stared down each other for probably 20 seconds.
I nodded, my head down to kinda acknowledge this creature, and absolutely no response, like "your not my friend and you never will be" kinda look back from this creature.
TM: They are for sure out there. What color was this one? and what happened next?
J: Brown about the color on Chewbacca on star wars, about the same build too.
I was on an elevated trail looking this thing dead in the eyes.
I started over an embankment but it was the longer route home, I came back on the trail and it was still in the same spot.
It turned and went back the way it came, I started down the trail in the same direction, I looked down to check my footing, looked up and it disappeared amongst the pines.
I walked to where I last saw it, I looked in every direction, I didn't see it anywhere. I even looked in the trees. I couldn't understand how something like that could be gone that quickly.
I then felt like I was being watched and quickly left the area.
I avoided that area as much as I could but I had a garden up there so, Didn't have a choice and 2 days later I came upon a mountain lion on that same trail not 100 feet from where all this occured.
TM: About how tall would you guess the creature to have been?
J: 8 feet or better
TM: good sized one.
TM: so you had gone up to check your garden spot when you had the encounter?
J: Actually I was on my way back out of there.
TM: did the thing ever make any sound?
J: I've only told my wife and one friend this story
TM: well, I'm glad you shared it with me. Did you see any foot tracks?
J: No tracks
J: No problem,
I've watched several of your movies, have you had an encounter similar to mine?
TM: I have had several encounters ...been real close to them several times...had a nice visual a couple years ago.. big black one
TM: did you believe in Bigfoot before that day?
J: If I hadn't seen it with my own eyes I wouldn't believe it.
Have you experienced any hostility from these creatures?
TM: No...other than a very close and loud wood knock. Had had several of them holler at me over the years ..some fairly close.
J: Just be prepared, I assume just like people some friendly some not so much.
TM: I agree ..some are not very friendly ...some are more aggressive ...like us humans I guess.
TM: I've been doing this for almost 30 years ...I have had so many things happen...not all Bigfoot ...some with bears ...too close for sure.
J: My hats off to ya.
TM: thank you ..I have found many tracks, stick formations and a couple hand prints ..have pictures of some of it on my page.
TM: Anything else you would like to say about your sighting? Any other details about the creature?
J: It's face was more chimp like, dark brown eyes, when it turned and walked away, I was like " well it doesn't want to kill me" or it would right now.
I didn't have a gun or knife nothing to defend myself with, and that would be even more important when I saw the mountain lion 2 days later and it stalked me home.
- End -
