September 1960

We were herding our cows home at night (they had got out of the pasture) and were walking to the west heading into the wind. We were near the edge of a ravine that came out of the "endless bush" a mile away (the ravine is thickly treed). All of a sudden the cows took off running to skirt around a grainery(building hoilding grain) near the edge of the ravine, and our dog whined once and took off at a run towards home, a half a mile away. The three of us running close to the cows cut accross in front of the grainery to cut off the cows. As we raced around the building we came out infront and straight into a huge man like animal covered in fur. It was after dark, but the oon has rose early and the light colored oat or barley stems ib the field (I don't remember hwich crop)really made things bright. the animal had grain in its hand and just stared at us for 3 to 5 seconds, asand looked as surprised as we did. My oldest brother quickly said "Iknow that's you Walter Luka, in my Dad's bear suit" (Walter Luka was a neighbor that lived about 3 miles away and was huge, 6 foot 4 and weighed about 420 pounds). The animal then turned and quickly walked into the bush, 40 yards away. When we got home we imediately checked and our Dad's "bear suit" (coveralls brown color made of wool and made for very cold weather)was still hanging there. My Dad was still not back from hunting moose. I was 8 at the time, and my brothers were 10 and 14. We started talking about it at home and we realized that it had reached in to get grain from the gable end of the grainery which was about 8 and a half feet off the ground. We recalled that the animal(which looked like a man) was almost as tall as the gable ends of the grainery, or 8 feet high. Our father was in the logging business and had several Indians (natives) working for him and a few months later we were talking to them and they said it was a sasquatch. That is the first time we had ever heard the word but it was used commonly years later as several people in Northern Alberta saw these animals.
