Describe what you were doing at time of sighting
Myself and several other children (ages 10-13) were riding bicycles down a steep hill leading to a creek.
Describe what you heard / found / saw
As we approached the bottoms I saw a large, hairy creature standing in the underbrush simply lookingnat us. I wrecked my bicycle and the other boys intentionally discarded their bicycles as we fled on foot.nThe creature was large but I cannot give a good estimate. It was very foul smelling. My best view of itncame as I lay on the ground after wrecking . A teenage babysitter took us back to the sight to get ournbicycles about 15 minutes later. A group on horse back saw us and, after hearing our story, said that theirnhorses were incredibly spooked by something.
Describe the time of year and the environment
Summertime in a creek bottom.
