Date of sighting: December 7, 2011
Location: McKenzie River Drive, near Blue River, Oregon
Witness: The witness, a U.S. Forest Service employee who was pretty high up in the department, refused to give their name; incident reported to WVBS by Mike Bodewitz
Description of encounter: In Mike's own words:
“I called the Forest Service and they did not give a lot of information. They said an individual that is pretty high up in the department had a brief sighting at this location. The high up had a quick glance at what he saw. There are also sightings at a campground called Owalie.”
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, especially the campground at Owalie.
