REPORT DETAIL

Description of event: I was just going for a morning hike up in the mountains to just clear my head of the thoughts that i could not make go away. I had been walking for about ten minutes maybe, when i smelled somthing that i thought was a dead animal of some kind and all i thought was wow that stinks. And then a couple of minutes later i started to hear branches breaking and the birds all became really quite, now at this i just thought that a carnivor might be going after the dead animal. So i did not think very much of it and kept walking.And about this time i saw a big brown image move in front me about 25 yards away and at this i started to get a little creeped out. So i stopped walking to take in my surrondings and see if maybe i could see what the animal was. This is when i saw it. He had stopped walking and was looking back at me and i saw his amber reflecting eyes staring at me. I tried but could not run my feet would not move. Now up until this exact moment i had never believed in bigfoot but that day changed the way i will look at the creature for the rest of my life.
