At 2:40 pm on Wednesday, May 31, 2017 a security guard (who will remain anonymous) was traveling north on Highway 7 out of Morton, WA. As he passed a clear cut on his left, he saw a huge hairy figure run bipedally from left to right across the road in front of him, seemingly from the trees bordering the clear cut into the heavy brush on the right side of the road. The figure was immediately recognized as a sasquatch because of the figure’s size, and its speed. The sasquatch crossed between one and two hundred feet ahead of him, and it was already in the road when the witness first noticed it.
The witness was in his patrol car with his K9 police dog companion at the time of the sighting. He slowed down where the figure disappeared into the brush on the right side of the road in order to see if he could catch another glimpse of the creature, but he saw nothing. His dog, however, immediately “went stupid barking and bouncing around in his crate” as they slowly drove through the area where the bigfoot crossed.
In an email, the witness wrote, “There is absolutely no mistaking what I saw. Full daylight and 150-200 feet directly in front of me. The animal was 8 to 10 feet tall with dirty blonde colored fur with a white or lighter colored stomach.” He went on to say there was no way it was a man in a suit because of the size and speed. He was also willing to take a polygraph test to verify his story.
I received his email on June 2nd and immediately called the witness. I was already familiar with the Morton area from having been on several expeditions nearby, and even obtaining an interesting sound recording there.
We arranged a meeting for that very evening at 6 pm in Morton, WA. I wanted to get on the scene as soon as possible in case footprints or other spoor were still there. The weather had been good, so there was a good chance that something might be located.
I met the witness and his sixth grade daughter at the scene and he retold his account to me on camera. Concerned about his employment, I assured the witness his identity would not be made public by me. I will only make this recording public with his explicit permission, an agreement I make with all my witnesses.
We looked around for several hours for footprints or sign of the sasquatch’s passing. Since the witness was unsure as to exactly where the bigfoot ran out or into the woods, it was very difficult to locate anything. A one hundred yard stretch of woods is a huge area to search, and two days had passed allowing the grass and other plants to stand up straight again, functionally erasing any sign of the bigfoot’s passing. I did find numerous animal trails, complete with deer and elk prints, but no definitive signs of the sasquatch.
I found the witness to be fully believable. His daughter shared with me how excited her father was when he shared the story with her over the phone on the same evening he saw the sasquatch. He spent his own time and money to drive out to the location from his home near Tacoma, WA immediately after picking his daughter up from school. He wore his uniform to the site, complete with side arm and badge, and he brought his K9 unit out to sniff around as well. He didn’t believe nor disbelieve in sasquatches before his sighting, but now is very interested in the subject and has started asking his friends and looking online for more information.
If you have any information about sasquatches in the Morton, WA area, or anywhere else for that matter, please contact me and share what you know.
