PARK officials have denied a Bigfoot-like creature is on the loose in Wanstead’s woods after a “strange and hairy” bear-like animal was spotted by a fisherman. Trainee fitness instructor Michael Kent said he was “stunned” when he saw the “hairy, dark creature” during an evening fishing trip in the Hollow Ponds area of Epping Forest, on the border between Wanstead and Leytonstone.
Mr Kent, 18, said: “I was there with my dad and brother. I was walking over to where my brother was when I heard this rustling sound. “I looked over and saw this strange, dark figure that resembled a bear. It was hunched over and I could see it had a really hairy back. I think it must have heard me and scampered off into the bushes after a couple of seconds. “It was getting dark but I still managed to get a good look at it. It was about 4 ft tall, so it was too small to be human, but not the right shape to be a deer, it didn’t have long legs or anything like that.
In a small corner of Yorkshire within walking distance of each other there are two similar woods, in a similar setting with very similar accounts, they both happened to boys who were splaying out with their friends in these woods, they were all making noise and playing on rope swings, swinging across the streams, they each in turn encountered strange unexplainable figures that stood watching them, then chasing the boys out and away from the area. They were both chased off and it seems “not caught” although I think it would of been very easy to catch them if that was the plan.. This behaviour seems to imply a diversion rather than an attack. As you will see in both cases, the boys who reported the incidents and the areas themselves have many things in common. Children outside with friends enjoying the woodlands are a common source of witness reports. As you will see from the MAP OF UK Accounts they are not alone.
Reported by a witness to Charmaine Fraser: Jan 2015, The incident occurred around 1970: I know thats a while ago now, but I have never forgotten about it so even now Im confident about what happened and what I saw.
“About 45 years ago I was with my then girlfriend and we were parked on a forestry road at the junction of Langdykes Brae and Porters Brae on the road to Cults. The area is heavy Woodlands and is an area used for Forestry. Now this junction we were parked up in is about 1.5 miles from Kennoway in Fife.
We had become quite obsessed with seeing this figure and told one of our friends nick, who decided to come with us one night. So all together off we went across the fields from my Grans house, it was about a 10-15 min walk, the night was still and clear, time around 9. We decided this time wed go in on the main entrance just like we did on the original sighting. I’l explain here that if your looking on google maps it is not the Womersley rd entrance, this is where the lorries used to go in, its a wide path across the field from Broomhill estate.
We walked down this path and as we got closer the atmosphere just sort of changed, it became more expectant, you knew something was going to happen, but you just didn’t know what! Suddenly there was a commotion of barking dogs coming from in front and to our right, they were in the garden of the house next to the main path, on the right of the path there is the boundary fence and a house with a large plot of land.
The Carter farm, once upon a time, was only 58.3 acres. Fifty-eight point three acres that the map clearly shows was/is land that stretches along as frontage property adjacent to Reynolds Road. Finding this location was a breeze. No more than 5 miles going south from downtown Madisonville one turns left off of route 411 and proceeds east on Reynolds Road for a short couple of miles. Single wide trailers pepper the road side with an occasional average foundation home placed in the mix. Cattle, horses and donkeys are seen leisurely grazing on two farms before, but close to the Carter farm. This is not a mountainous area by any stretch of the imagination, nor is it what anyone could call, with a straight face occupied by Hillbilly mountain people. This location [the Carter farm] is close to town, close to the highway and consists of a few rolling hills. It is not a mile from the mountainous park as is claimed however the distant mountains can be seen from the farm.
Once immediately passing the Carter farm two trailers [mobile homes] were found on the same side of the road. I drove up to these trailers that bordered the far east side of what is now Philpot’s land and quickly noticed dogs, dogs that were adult and puppies eagerly meeting my vehicle. Here we got out, petted and photographed a couple of these dogs. Not much further down the road another large herd of cattle was noted and around the very next bend ( no more than one half to a mile from the Carter place) we found an Emu farm. Emu’s were observed contently enjoying the pasture far from any cover or concern.
The structures of the farm (house, mobile home, barn, sheds) are located well within a few yards of the road. Janice’s old house also sets close to the road. The door that the alleged Bigfoot [Fox] knocked on requesting garlic is no further than a half of football field from the roads edge. Reynolds Road is newly blacktopped, narrow and curves directly in front of 507, Janice’s old place — local traffic flies around this curve. At night the eastbound traffic’s headlights cannot help but scan across the entire front of the house as they negotiate the turn. Next to the Carter farm property, literally within feet and west of 507 Reynolds Road, approximately a dozen young calves were seen lazing about. The calves were border only by a weak barbed wire fence and drying creek bed. Full Article Here.
We welcome everyone here at British Bigfoot regardless of theory or opinion, Its by trading thoughts and discussing the many varied habits and twisting turns in research that we may just find the answers we are looking for. And if not lets enjoy the journey and make new friends as we go.!!!!
Witness statement Emma Adam: I want to report something that happened to me and my sister a few years ago now back in 2013. We still don’t know to this day what we saw, I dont have a name for it and nothing on Google is matching up with it, someone said it could be red deer as they will stand on two feet but this was no deer. We were driving along Limby Hall lane in Swannington in Leicestershire this is just past the Grace Dieu Priory area and we decided on this route as it was new for us and we wanted to walk the dogs somewhere different for a change, my sister lived in Eastwood Nottingham at the time so she came over and slept the night at mine in Whitwick. We were out on the lane and it was getting darkish but there was still plenty enough light to walk our two dogs, I would say it was roughly around Feb and about 10/11 pm time. My sister was the driver and I was the passenger and our dogs were in the back.
It has become almost an accepted phenomenon right across North America – but now a man has reported that he saw a Bigfoot-like creature walking in a field just ten miles from Bristol. The eye-witness said he was on a train from Exeter to Bristol Temple Meads, which was approaching the city on a bright Friday morning in November last year, when he saw a massive creature taking huge strides along a hedgerow. The report was made to the British Bigfoot Sightings group – a team of researchers based around the country who collect and investigate sightings of upright hairy ape-like creatures in this country.
