New Brunswick Canada (Class A) BFRO


Hello, My name is Steve and I would like to share my sighting with the group. Before I go any further I would like to say that this is a fantastic web site and if I would have seen it in 1997 I would have posted then. Having looked through the site I noticed other sighting in the New Brunswick area one around the same time as mine. Durung the summer of 1998 (July or August?) I set out on a solo vacation from the Ottawa area to travel the eastern provinces. I first visited a friend in Red Banks N.B where I left my car and trailer. The next day I got on my motorcycle and headed to Kouchibouguac Provincial park on the recomendation of my friend. The next morning I got up early and decided I would like to take avantage of what trails the park had to offer. I picked the bog. This was the largest bog I had even seen. It is something like 1.5km wide by .75km [across]. You walk along a short trail through the forest and then wow!, you are presented with this incredible bog. I climbed this small viewing tower located at the start of the Bog and took in the spectular view. I remember saying to myself "Lets see what animals I can spot" and then seeing something and saying to myself "theres one". I pride myself in having exceptional vision and I focused as best I could on this animal. It was directly in front of me at an estimated distance of 500'. It was a greyish brown colour from head to toe. It was walking away from me. I never once thought is was a Man as it's colouring was too close to its surroundings and too uniform. The only problem I had was that it was walking upright. I watched it until it was out of my sight desperit to get an identifaction. Once I couldnt see it anymore I decended the tower and walked along the boardwalk through the bog in the same direction as the creature. At the end of the boardwalk I thought about going into the bog to look for it and fear of the unknown caused me to turn back. Before leaving the bog I went back up the tower and it was exactly where I saw it the first time except this time it walked right across my field of vision from right to left. It was close enough that I could see light between its legs as it walked and noticed its lower leg and arms seemed longer than a humans. It appeared to be picking things up as it walked. It didnt need to bend over or stop as it picked up some kind of plants. I watched it for about 20 minutes and it seemed to me like I was looking at a shadow. I felt like it knew that I didnt have either my binocculars or camera to get a closer look at it. It was just out of my visual reach to make a definite identification. During my vacation I walked alot of trails and on two ocassions I walked off the trail into the bush. I noticed a light from deep into the bush as if there was an opening and sure enough I found what appeared to be a natural road /trail about 20' wide and as far as I could see either way. Being in these openings felt strange so I would turn back and continue on the main trail. At one opening I noticed an impression in the ground that appeared to be in the shape of a foot print. Athough it wasn't clear if it was a foot print it seemed odd because it was about 1" deep like an impression of a rock but there was no rock. Well it feels good to add this to your web site. I have always thought that Sasquatch existed from a young boy in the growing up in the seventies but it was furthest from my mind when I woke up that morning.
