Describe what you were doing at time of sighting
My reserve unit was at Fort Indiantown Gap on annual training. It was around 2 a.m. and I was onnperimeter guard duty around our bivouac site (we were undergoing tactical training).
Describe what you heard / found / saw
First, I only heard some sounds. Maybe 100 ft. away. Leaves crunching, twigs breaking, etc. This wentnon for a minute or so and then I caught a whif of something. The smell was hard to describe. Maybe anmix of rotting vegatation and cat urine. It kept getting stronger for about a minute or two. Thennsuddenly I heard a noise like a huff or a woof. It sounded like it was getting closer so I risked turning onnmy flashlight (we were under sound and light discipline since we were in a tactical situation). I pannednthe flashlight around and caught a quick glimpse of a large furry/hairy creature maybe 25 yard away.nWhen my light hit it, it took off at a quick lope down into a small valley and I lost sight of it. I was nevernso terrified in my life. I never told anyone what happened for fear of being labled a
Describe the time of year and the environment
It was summer. We were in the middle of a large wooded section of Fort Indiantown Gap.
Have there been any other reports ro talk in your area
I only know of one other report. A family claimed to see a bigfoot in a state game land. I don't rememberntoo many details because it happened maybe 15 years ago.
Additional comments
I don't know exactly what it was that I saw. Maybe a bear. We have lots of bear in that area. I considernmyself a skeptic. I don't believe in ufos or alien abduction or the Loch Ness Monster, etc. I have anscientific background (A bachelors degree in chemistry) so I tend to require strong evidence before Inbelieve in something. To this day, I am unsure whether or not I believe Bigfoot exists. I just know I sawnsomething that scared the bejesus out of me that night.
