Category: Actual sighting
Date of sighting: End of summer, 2010
Location: Forest Service Road 19, also known as Aufderheide Drive and the "Box Canyon Road" near Eugene, Oregon
Witness: The witness, a U.S. Forest Service patrol officer, refused to give their name; report submitted to the WVBS by Mike Bodewitz
Description of encounter: In Mike's own words:
“I contacted the Forest Service and this individual who would not release his/her name had a sighting on Road 19 while on patrol.”
Description of creature: None given
Comments: This doesn’t surprise me that the Forest Service employees won’t talk about Bigfoot sightings they have had. I can understand that their credibility as Forest Service employees would be on the line. At least they admitted to having a sighting. That’s a step in the right direction. The area will be looked into for a possible future investigation.
