My name is Simon Austin from Coleford near Gloucester, I have lived here all my life . I never knew where to report my encounter until a friend of mine told me about mark Farnell a friend of his who follows sightings of unexplainable creatures like Bigfoot. I work in Staunton, one morning I woke at 05.00am and got myself ready for work.
As I was driving down scowles road heading for the A4136 highway, keeping in mind there was very little to no traffic I approached a left turn junction, near stowfield quarry at that point my car was hit by a small log or branch. In shock I looked to my right from where the sound emitted from and what I saw was frightening to say the least. I witnessed a creature sprinting towards me on all fours; at least that’s what I thought until it came closer. It was running on two legs but low to the floor. It resembled a dog but had a long snout but was much taller and was very thin. I accelerated off as fast as I could. The creature was black in colour and had frosted eyes. I have never seen anything like this before and hope I don’t see it again. I hope this helps in anyway.
A seemingly flesh and blood bear was sighted on Hackney Marshes during the 1970s, yet seemed to vanish without trace after a few reports. Rather quirkily, actors Jasper Carrott and Robert Powell, whilst playing ‘The Detectives’ (BBC 1997), hunted a similar creature, in an episode entitled ‘The Beast Of Hackney Marshes’.
We examine some of those commonly observed behavioural traits of ‘International Bigfoot’ that are also witnessed, although less frequently so, in alleged Bigfoot encounters in Britain.
So, what are Howls, Growls, Whoops and Wood knocks? Plainly put,they are audible encounters, that are assumed by the cryptozoology community, at large, to be a form of communication among these animals, that is primarily employed to convey a message or a mood to one another; and less commonly believed, by some, strangely ‘connected believers’, to be a form of communication between these animals and themselves.
Recorded examples of these audible idioms are distinctly equivocal worldwide. One of the reasons for this possibly being, that certain sounds are relatively easy to explain away, via the transposal of other known corporeal impostors, that admittedly, could be wholly responsible for these alleged, sensory confrontations!
Even in a country like Britain, allegedly devoid of large predators, many of our indigenous animals growl, our dogs howl and birds whoop and whistle. Wood knocks, also regularly meet their nemesis in the woodpecker and, of course, all 5 of these sounds, could easily be attributed to human activity for myriad reasons. Some of which, could be as simple as, forestry workers felling trees, walkers whistling, their dogs howling and growling, or the obvious elephant in the room – the activity of other bigfoot researchers, out in the woods, practising their own primate power of projection!
Recently, I was contacted by a friend, who just discovered that I conduct Bigfoot research and log sightings. We haven’t been in contact with each other for a few years, but that changed thanks to social media. It was good to message back and forth with an old friend.
After we talked a little, he told me about his Bigfoot sighting here in my home county of Bell. I instructed him to submit an official report with us. His sighting has, to my knowledge, never been officially reported until now.
Here is his sighting:

Describe sighting in detail:
Driving home from my cousins on page cut off, as I was getting close to a small curve I saw what I thought was a big tree stump on the creek side of the road.
As I got closer it took like 3 to 4 steps and was across the road. All I could tell was it looked to be 7 foot tall and brown or black it was dark.
I saw it plain with my head lights, walk with arms to its side and went up a very steep embankment. I stopped but couldn’t see it. I turned around went back and called my friend.
Freaked me out.
I went back the next day to that spot and tried to cross the road, no possible way a human could even get across the road in even 5 steps.
Follow up question
TM: Did you see it’s face at all?
J: No, It shocked me and all I remember seeing was it’s whole body. It was dark so my headlights were on it but it was definitely something big and bipedal. I remember the long looking arms kinda swinging.

Of course, we thank Jamie for his sighting report. Jamie is a very creditable witness and has nothing to gain from his sighting. We hope to document the area in the near future.
In this particular area there are few houses and a lot of forest land. This area also has several streams and ponds on it. I have also taken other Bigfoot sighting reports from this general area.
My name is Al Smith but everyone calls me Hillbilly Al, which got shortened to Hal some years ago, and it stuck. After leaving school, I decided that I wanted to be outside as much as possible so thought that a job with animals would be ideal Through BIAZA I found a job as a field biologist’s assistant, which I loved and it gave me a great opportunity to travel and see some amazing places, meet different people and to see animals in their natural habitat.
I soon learnt that I had a real passion for primates and talked to people about furthering this passion into a career. I was told about Rodbaston College and found I already knew someone that was a lecturer there, so I enrolled. After leaving Rodbaston I decided to look into zoo keeping as the Field Research had become a little bit too much, and I had at that time met the girl who would later become my wife, and I wanted to spend more time with her. I was lucky enough to work at several zoos all over the UK, my favourite being Dudley Zoo, because I met some of the best primate keepers I had ever worked with and had total respect for them.
AN APEMAN standing eight feet tall and with “red burning eyes” has
been spotted lurking around woods … in Tunbridge Wells. Reports claim that a “hairy beast with demonic eyes” has been seen on the 200-acre Tunbridge Wells Common in Kent several times in the past. According to local community website Tunbridge Wells People, the Kentish Apeman – or British Bigfoot – was first seen 70 years ago during World War Two, but has “now returned”. It states that the last sighting took place on the edge of the woods when the “beast” roared, scaring off a man walking home through the woods. The witness said the apeman was “covered in hair” and had “long arms and stood at around 8 ft tall”.
A man in England was surprised by a monkey-like animal he says came out of the woods in the county of Suffolk.
Bury St Edmunds resident Geoff Knights says he was looking for “big cat signs” in the Offton woods, near Stowmarket, when the creature showed up on Aug. 14. “I have seen one big cat and several pug marks too,” Knights, also known as Crabtree, said. “Then I heard it as clear as day.”
