Nearest town: Sitkum
Nearest road: Coos Bay Wagon Rd
Location: Right under Deadhorse Bridge Coos Bay Wagon Rd.
Description of event: My wife and I were on our way to Roseburg from Coquille when we rounded a corner on Wagon Rd. and wife spotted something near the river bank. She yelled at me "there's a bear right there!" Stopped to look and the bear stood up on two legs and walks up a steep bank very fast. We knew it was no bear when it stood up. It had to be at least 8ft in height and very heavy. I could smell the thing and it left footprints behind. We did not go down to prints because we was afraid it might come back. br>
The track from the rd looked to be 15 inches or more. We could here the thing breaking branches or brush and it was letting out a deep garbled sound. We didn't report it because they would have thought us nuts.
