BRFO REPORTS Report # 48012 (Class A)
Submitted by witness on Monday, February 16, 2015.
COUNTY: Wyandotte County
LOCATION DETAILS: K-7 / US 73 Highway runs north and south along the Leavenworth/Wyandotte county line. Closest intersection is Donahoo Road, or a mile and a half north of the traffic light at Leavenworth Road.
NEAREST TOWN: Western edge of Kansas City, Kansas
NEAREST ROAD: On Kansas 7 / US 73 Highway
OBSERVED: On or about 00:30 Hours (12:30 AM), February 10, 2015, give or take 30 minutes, I was on my way home from work. I work in Overland Park, Kansas and live in Lansing, Kansas. I have been working a special project and my hours are from 3 PM to Midnight. I was driving North on K-7 Highway just past Leavenworth Road near Falcon Estates Subdivision when a very large animal darted across the road in front of me running on two feet. I did not slow down and was only able to see the back end of the animal. The only thing in my mind right now is the fur pattern that I saw. The fur looked a little longer than my hair which would make the hair about 2 to 3 inches and a little darker than color tan but a lighter color than the color brown, more of a dirty blond, it had waves in the hair, almost curly in areas. It was larger and faster than any deer that I have ever seen in the area. The size could be a large horse or elk. I am glad that I did not hit it because of its size it would have totaled my car. I cannot be 100% sure but it could have been a Big Foot. The tail bone was about even to the middle of my driver’s side window. I drive a Ford Focus. I was just amazed by the fur color and texture.
ALSO NOTICED: No
OTHER WITNESSES: Just me in my car. There was another car about 100 yards behind me traveling the same direction, Not sure who they are or what they say.
OTHER STORIES: No
TIME AND CONDITIONS: Between midnight and 1 AM
ENVIRONMENT: Rural, with some ponds and a few creeks. About 5 miles south west of the Missouri River.
Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Carter Buschardt:
Spoke with the witness for 40 minutes or so. Witness is a retired police officer. After retiring as a police officer, he worked at both the Federal prison at Leavenworth and minimum security prison in Lansing KS, just up the road. He was clear, precise, just as he would have been as a police officer. His account is as follows: He was travelling north as stated, at about 65-70 MPH. The bipedal creature ran in front of his car at a diagonal angle, going east to west. He was in the passing lane, and the second car was behind him as stated. The lights from that car illuminated the creature as well, so as far as he was concerned, the area was very well lit. The creature was no more than 5-6 feet away from him at the initial sighting, and “if my arms were 6 feet long, I could have reached out the front passenger window and touched it”. His physical description is as follows: 9ft tall and appx. 600-700 lbs. Hair, (NOT fur) was 2-3 inches in length and flapping as it ran. Definite upright bipedal creature. Musculature was observed as it ran and as stated, the tail bone was at mid wind height if his Ford Probe, which put that portion of the creature at 4-4.5 ft. tall. That is how he arrived at the 9 ft. estimate. He did not see the face and or upper body, as it was running away from him and he was driving and trying to keep his cool and control of the vehicle. He was a bit surprised the car behind him did not see anything, or at least they did not indicate by stopping or slowing down, that they saw anything. That was part of the reason he did not keep looking at the creature as it crossed over to the driver’s side, because he was trying to keep the other car in view to avoid an accident.
Time “seemed to slow down considerably, much as it did when I was a police officer in high stress or critical situations”, and thus his recollection of the event was crystal clear. There is no doubt in his mind now, as to what he saw. After the event, he went home, pulled out pen and paper, and stated that he “wrote my report as I would if I were still on duty while things were still fresh”. As he stated, everything was in slow motion, his recollection of events did not waive.
I am familiar with this area, having traveled it once a month for three years. It is rich fertile farmland, rotated with corn & soybeans. Deer are plentiful, as are turkey, good water sources, and the Missouri (Kansas) river is close, and numerous creeks. Not heavily wooded but enough timber certainly for cover. If I were to pick a witness whose clarity and recollection of events were not likely to be called into question, I would pick a law enforcement officer. He was clear and precise. I believe him.

A men and his two daughters say they came upon a two-legged primate in Michigan.
The anonymous man, a Roscommon County resident, says they were looking for rocks to build a fire pit when the event took place on April 3, 2017.
“It was about 7.45 p.m.,” he explains. “It was a light rain. We were coming up over a ridge on the trail and when we were starting down a huge bigfoot ran across the trail in front of us,” he added on the BFRO report.
The man says his family “saw it well”.
“It was covered in long black hair with a patch of white along its back, near its shoulder.”
He recalls the biped could run “with amazing speed” and in a “forward leaning position.”
“Its arms almost touched the ground,” he said about the 9-foot-tall creature.
“We could see legs, arms and head muscles, but not the face.”
But he says that “the strangest part” was the wolf running with it, as “if they were together”.
“The wolf was like its pet, it was very strange.”
The Dogman is a cryptid reputed to live in the northwestern quadrant of Michigan’s Lower Peninsula, although other sightings have been documented in other states, such as Wisconsin. This unproven creature was first reportedly spotted in 1887 by two lumberjacks, who described it as having a human body and a dog’s head.
In 2015, a group of three people in Michigan reportedly came across an unidentified dog-like creature in the woods of St. Clair County.
In 2014 a woman told Cryptozoology News that she had witnessed an encounter between a group of Bigfoot and Dogman creatures in what looked like some sort of symbiosis, reminding her of the “relationship between crocodiles and hippos”.
As most of you know Maps are one of my favourite things, and Bigfoot sightings maps are I feel incredibly important to not only researchers but the witnesses themselves, when you can see just how many other accounts there are on the map, it puts things into perspective when you see just how many people have seen these creatures also. The Pennsylvania Bigfoot Map was made by George Workman and with over 400 accounts and growing it would be a handy tool for anyone researching in the Pennsylvania are and surrounding States. George is a fellow member of S.O.N.A.R. (Sasquatch Organization of the North American Rockies)
This map shows possible Bigfoot sightings & encounters in & nearby Pennsylvania. More details of some reports are @ www.pabigfootsociety.com. If you have a report to be added to the map, send an email to email@example.com. I would like to thank George Workman for allowing me to share his wonderful map with you all and Joe Vogel who is the founder of S.O.N.A.R for his help with this article. If you have an interest in the Sasquatch subject pop on over to S.O.N.A.R and meet the gang.
Cryptozoology News reported It’s not uncommon to hear about Bigfoot sightings in the Golden State, but there’s one county in particular with over 110 years of encounters: the lush, vast Humboldt County. These old, deep Pacific Northwest woods hold generations of Bigfoot stories. Here are a few compelling accounts from Humboldt County between 1896 and 2007.
An Idaho motorist told the local sheriff’s department that a Bigfoot sighting caused her to crash her car last Wednesday night.
According to Pullman Radio, the woman, who was not identified, told the Latah County Sheriff’s Office that she saw a Sasquatch chasing a deer on a stretch of US-95 outside of Potlatch.
She said the creature was “shaggy” and between 7 and 8 feet tall, the Moscow-Pullman Daily News reported.
The woman checked her mirrors to see the Bigfoot, but as her eyes re-adjusted to the road she hit the deer with her Subaru Forester, the newspaper said.
Pullman Radio reported that the woman continued driving, picked up her husband from work then drove to the sheriff’s office to report the incident. Officers did not find any evidence of Bigfoot at the scene of the crash.
The radio station reported that the 50-year-old driver suffered a “minor neck injury.”
