April 2005

My daughter (age 13) and I were traveling towards Edmonton when an animal came out of the bush by the Highway (on my right). I was watching it carefully to see if it was a deer and had others following it. It was the size and shape of a large chimp. It was light brown in color and was moving with a two armed swinging motion. I was concerned enough that it may be an animal not meant to be loose, that I called a fish and wildlife officer. He was convinced that it was a bear cub. I have seen many bear cubs running and this was very different. It was much faster and there weren't the large paws that you would see with a bear cub. We watched as it crossed ahead of us towards the north and did not see a tail (even a tucked one). Could it have been a young sasquatch?
