2000 / 10 / S – Willow, AK
Sighting 10 miles from Wasilla. Witness was driving home around 5 or 6 AM and sees "something big
wandering" in road along straight-away. "It came out of the woods from the left side of the highway.
100-150 ft from it. It walked out very casually and got about to the middle yellow lines. It briefly
stopped, turned and glanced at the witness and his truck, and then, as his exact words were, "Just
booked." I said "ran?" And he kind of struggled to come up with the term that suited what it did. He
said, "Not really ran, or started running, more like just moved so fast, he couldn't believe it. He
couldn't quite grasp what just happened or what he had just seen. He said that it was huge. I asked,
"6, 7, 8 ft??" And he just replied "yeah like that, but just so big, (the girth) of it was huge, and it
moved so fast, I couldn't believe it, then It was just gone"a way,"

2004 / 06 / S - Haines Junction, Yukon
On October 29, 2004, my brother-in-law and I had driven a newly purchased used car, a Pontiac
Bonneville, from Anchorage to my father’s house in Willow, Alaska, staying there for the night. We
were planning on an early start through the Yukon toward Haines and the Ketchikan ferry the next
morning. Dad’s last advice the night before was, “Watch out for those early storms in the Yukon/BC
We got going at 6:00 AM the next day, and by evening we had passed through Haines Junction,
Yukon as a snow-storm hit us. We slowed to about 15mph because the visibility at times was less than
a hundred feet. Even so, at the height of land near Summit Mountain, we slipped off to the right on a
right uphill curve. We had seen no other traffic all night going either way, and had to try digging out.
It was dark, but we kept the car running and by the headlights and occasional moonlight we would
dig out, move a few yards uphill, then slide off again. This happened over and over for hours.
It was sometime around 2:00 AM when Witness #2 called out and I noticed a dark manlike shape
about six feet tall watching us on the summit bluff about fifty yards away to the east. The bluff was a
20 foot cliff facing the highway with the round height of land just behind it. The snow was reflecting
light from the headlights and maybe patches of moonlight, I don’t know, but we could see it clearly
enough to know it was not a bear. It just stood watching us, standing in the snow about twenty feet
above us, not moving or making any noise. I have no idea how long it had been there watching us.
Witness #2 ran to the car, and before I could react, grabbed a machete that we kept as a tool in the
car ran to the edge of the road and started waving it and screaming at the creature, trying to scare it
off. After watching Witness #2’s actions for only a few seconds, it turned to its right and I watched it
walk away in the snow along the top of the bluff for about fifty feet before disappearing over the flat
summit. We talked about what it could have been for a minute or two, then we got back to work
digging. The snow was not coming down right at the time and we were making headway when, about
five minutes later, another figure appeared, much taller than the first. I would estimate the second
creature to have been about nine feet tall and heavily built, with shoulders that looked three to three
and a half feet wide. It was dark-colored like the first and there was a breeze that was blowing its hair
on the arms, the hair looked to be about eight to ten inches long where I could see it blowing to the
side. The creature was facing directly towards us and was bobbing up and down, in a way that, to me,
looked menacing, kind of like going from a crouch with hands close to the bent knees, then
straightening up and down again. At no time did I see either of the creatures go down on all fours,
and at this point I could see the whole body of the big one right down to where the snow came to just
below its knees. I would best describe it as like a football linebacker bobbing up and down before
blitzing. I got a distinctly uneasy feeling, and before I knew it, Witness #2 was going for the machete
again and was starting in on his “scare-it-off” thing. I took one more look at the creature and called to
Witness #2: Get in the car, now! He looked at me a moment and then got right into the car and we
locked the doors. He was still holding the machete. I looked over and the big one was still looking at
us, crouching and bobbing up on the bluff. Witness #2 was extremely upset and was talking about
having to defend ourselves. I just said to him, Look, there’s no point in getting all worked up the way
things are. We might just as well sit tight and try to relax. If that thing wanted to, it could easily just
walk down here and rip the roof right of the car. Let’s just settle down, don’t even look at it, and
maybe it’ll calm down and go away. I reassured him as best I could and hunkered down behind the
wheel. Witness #2 was curled up in the back. I remember saying a prayer for us. I did look back out
once briefly about five or ten minutes later, I’m not exactly sure how many minutes, but I do
remember when I looked a last time, it was gone.
After what must have been at least an hour in the car, we got back out and didn’t hear or see
anything. We had been digging for only a few minutes when lights came up the highway behind us,
slowed and, just like us, slid off to the right. It was a small red truck, two-wheel drive, driven by a
little older woman with white hair. We were just getting her unstuck when a snowplow came up
behind her, driven by an American who, I believe was contracted to plow through to the Haines,
Alaska side. He seemed to know the lady, because he said, (Driver’s name of other vehicle), you
know you shouldn’t be out here in weather like this...” We saw her get up over the top of the
highway and off down the other side, and the plow driver used his blade to clear away all the snow on
the stuck side and got us out too.
We made it down to Haines safely about forty-five minutes later, in time for a breakfast at a cafe` and
the early ferry. I had told Witness #2 we didn’t want to be slowed down by talking about any of the
events; I just wanted to eat without any delays and make the ferry. But one thing did happen that
gave me a bit of the chills. In a corner of the café, about three booths away there was a group of older
men having coffee and talking. I could hear their conversation and I heard them mentioning
Sasquatches. One of them commented to the effect, “Yeah, they’re around, a couple was just talking
about seeing some of those critters up on top recently”. (Investigator’s Note: The term “on top”
possibly refers to being on or near the summit of the Haines Highway.)
“We made it home on the ferry safely, and that is my experience. Witness #2 has moved away and we
don’t keep in touch. Going over the sighting, I did not make out really clear details of the faces but
will say that these were not bears of any kind. The legs, arms and hair on both were too long, there
were no ears sticking up on the top of the head, and they were wide shouldered with the heads set
low on the shoulders. The total time I watched the first smaller creature was approximately thirty
seconds. The larger creature stayed in view for about ten minutes. The details of the creatures as I
remember them are accurate to the best of my ability, although the estimates of distances might be a
few yards off, and the heights may vary by a few inches.”
INVESTIGATIVE SUMMARY: This report is courtesy of J. Robert Alley, Sasquatch Tracker Associate,
Southeast Alaska Region. The two men involved had purchased a new vehicle in Anchorage, AK and
had visited Witness #1’s father in Willow, AK before departing for the Alaska Marine Highway ferry at
Haines, AK at 0600 on October 29, 2008. Once aboard the ferry, they would make their way back to
their homes in Ketchikan, AK. For those unfamiliar with the road system in Alaska, driving from the
interior region of Alaska to the southeastern region of Alaska involves driving partially through the
Yukon Territory and the northern part of British Columbia, reentering the United States and then
heading south via the ferry from Haines, AK.
Witness #1 did not specify if the second Sasquatch appeared in the same place as the first one.
Witness #1 made a reference to the BC mountains meaning he and the other witness had already
driven the portion of the highway that passes through the Yukon and were in the northern section of
British Columbia within a few miles of the United States \ Canada International Border which is
approximately 40 miles north of Haines, AK.
After recounting the encounter with Alley, Witness #1 added, “Although neither of the creatures
made any sounds that I could hear and we didn’t go looking for tracks, I would say, having seen
various TV documentaries on Sasquatches, that on October 30, 2008 I definitely observed two
Sasquatches beside the Haines Highway near the summit west of the highway north of Haines, Alaska
and south of the Yukon.
Witness #1 has a signed affidavit testifying to the details of his encounter on file with Alley in

One Day after hunting season, a man driving on Yoder Road approximately 16 miles from Talkeetna
(N 62° 18’41’ X W150° 05’13’) has a sighting on a flat section of the road. The witness explained that
since gasoline was expensive, he regularly would put his vehicle in neutral and coast down hills. It
was during one such “coast” that the witness came upon a dark figure in the road. The witness
described that he believed he was “…seeing the largest black bear I ever saw walking on its hind
legs…” However, moments later he realized he was looking at something else. The witness
estimated he was about 100 yards from the subject and described it as 7 ½ to 8 feet tall. The witness
further described that the dark figure was “…covered with about 6 inches of straight clean jet black
hair…” The subject had “… black hands, no hair on the palms…” The witness then went on to state
that the subject turned its upper body to look at him. As it turned, the witness saw that it “… had a
fleshy face [with} no hair on [the] cheeks and forehead…” The witness noticed it had a “6 inch
beard…” “It walked in woods after spotting me. I then raced the car up to that spot and slowly drove
by looking into the foliage. You couldn't see into the woods, too much foliage. It looked … extremely
well-muscled. Its thighs looked tremendously strong! There was no V shape of the back, the back
was straight to the waist where the “lat” [latissimus] muscles would be on a man.”
INVESTIGATIVE NOTES: The witness went on to explain that he waited almost a year before telling
anyone and only a handful of people believed what he told them. He also said that it “…actually
changes your life” but did not elaborate. In response to further questions, the witness explained that
when compared “the film footage of a bigfoot from years ago...the one I saw was different...very in
shape...the thigh muscles and the size...” The witness added that he thought the subject may have
been on its way “…towards upper Montana Creek to eat spawning salmon.” Sasquatch Tracker,
