McKinley County New Mexico (Class A) BFRO

March 2011

I was traveling home from work in Gallup to Bluewater, South Side. The time was about 8 p.m. As I was traveling on hiway 612, right when I was exiting the sharp curves, I noticed a figure moving by the road on the right side. I thought it was a very tall person at first but when I looked I noticed that it wasn't human. As I got closer it started to cross the road and almost hit my truck. It stopped and I did not want to stop because the road was ice packed and I didn't want to get stuck or run off the road. I seen the creature a few feet thru my trucks passenger front window. The creature's face looked ape and humanistic. He was probably 7 feet tall because when he got real close to the vehicle I couldn't see his face. He stood way over the truck. I was overwhelmed with fear at this point and just kept going home.
