The incident occurred at roughly 7.30pm, the area was very smokey due to fires burning nearby. The witness was driving north on Highway 101 when the animal stepped onto south bound edge from out of the treeline. At the time there were no other cars in the south bound lane, though there was a truck 200ft behind the witness at was also traveling north.
At 1st sighting the witness was 200ft away from the animal and he was traveling roughly 60 miles per hour. He says that he hit the brakes as soon as he saw the animal run across the highway but he still almost hit it. The other driver in the next lane never applied his brakes and never seemed to slow. The animal ran on its hind legs very fast across the south bound lanes and then leaned forward onto it huge arms and went down on all fours. This seemed to cause the animal to pick up speed. At this point he says he was standing on brake pedal afraid he would slam into it. The witness came to a complete stop in the far right lane.
The animal stopped at edge of freeway 25ft away from him, turned it's upper body towards him and he noted that the neck moved with the body. He describes it as being 7ft tall, 500 pounds, no visible breasts or genitals, and the body "was like looking at giant man/ape". The legs were very muscular and seemed proportional to the other body parts.
The animal looked directly at the witness, stared at him and he noted that the face was very similar to that of an ape. He says the color was of untanned leather or a ripe banana. He noted that there was no hair on the face itself, but that the hair of the animals head was black and resembled wool. He says it looked like it might grow to a certain length and then stop. There was no tonality to it.
There was a distinct forehead that was devoid of hair and contained a boney ridge that protruded above eyes. He described the eyes as dark brown and that the whites of eyes seemed bloodshot. The eyes had a reddish glow seeming to come from the iris. The nose was flat to face and very minimal almost like there was no nose; there was no nose in the profile. He states that the face seemed flatter than that of a gorilla. The mouth was "very serious", with closed, tight lips and a rounded chin.
The animals arms were "huge and long". As it ran it leaned forward slightly to incorporate arms into propelling it forward. The back seemed parallel to ground while it ran.
The animal stared at him for 5 secs. then straightened up and bounded up the steep embankment on all fours.
The Field Investigator visited the location a week to the day after the encounter and was able to corroborate the witnesses description of the area. The embankment the animal is said to have ran up was very steep and composed of small rocks, various forest rubble, and hard packed dirt. The footpath the animal had taken as well as the marks of the individual steps was still very clearly delineated. At a point close by with the same soil composition and incline, the investigator tried multiple times to climb the embankment but found it too difficult to climb in hiking boots. The individual footpath and foot markings were flagged with tape and photographed for this report.
