Describe what you were doing at time of sighting
Describe what you heard / found / saw
While we was walking on the Kettle Crest Trail North we seen a creature that was not human. We wasnwalking up the trail maybe about 1/2 mile. I was looking around for birds because I am a bird watchernbut the strange thing about today was that there was no birds making any noise at all just the sound ofnthe wind. When we got to an open area that I thought might be good spotting birds we sat for a while maybe about 15 minutes and we heard something that sounded really big coming through the brush,nwhen I heard it I thought it might be a bear, my friend also agreed. Then this hairy creature walked outnand it really startled me. It was about 8-9 feet tall, maybe about 500-600 pounds. It saw us and then itnslowly walked away on two feet. There is no way that this thing could have been human because of thensize of it. After that we got out of there pretty fast.
