Describe what you were doing at time of sighting
fishing with my buddies at Wilson Creek
Describe what you heard / found / saw
We were standing on a bank in front of the water. One of my friends said that he had heard somethingnon the other side of the creek, and that he was going to check it out because we were expecting morencompany later on. My friend swam through the water to get to the other side, he went into the woods tongo check out the noises. We saw some trees shake and we yelled out to him to quit goofing off, becausenthe kid is a little goofy anyway. But about 7 to 10 minutes later I started to feel worried because he hadnnot spoke another word back to us. We heard his footsteps across the creek and we saw him in a clearingnwhere the trees parted, his face was as white as a ghost, from seeing his face and the manor he wasnstaring back at us I thought he had gotten bitten by a snake or something so we all went over to join himnquickly and see if he was okay. We asked him what was wrong but he could not answer and just pointednback to the woods, some kids still thought the boy was playing a joke but I could tell he was quitenserious. He was motioning quickly to go across the creek back to the other side, so we took him back tonthe other side. He spoke something about a man-like creature like a man/bear. But he was to petrified tongive us a good description yet. So we left the smallest of us behind to stay and keep the boy companynand we proceeded to the other side of the creek. We never saw the creature the boy had spoken of Butnwe did see a series of very wide man-like footprints imprinted about an inch in the ground, thisndefinitely rattled me and gave me an eerie feeling inside. We all decided to leave and report the incidentnto the rangers, the rangers acted kind of funny when we told them about it. The said the had never heardnof the creature.
