Report # 7473 (Class A)
Submitted by witness on Saturday, November 29, 2003. Family finds tracks and has close visual encounter
YEAR: 2003

SEASON: Winter

MONTH: January

STATE: Oklahoma

COUNTY: Cleveland County

NEAREST TOWN: Norman

OBSERVED: My family resides close to Norman, Oklahoma, and from 1976 to the present, there have been numerous incidents revolving around Bigfoot, including two sightings in 1976 and one in January 2003, footprints in both mud and snow, several incidents where vocalization was heard, and numerous other accounts of stones being thrown, foul odor being smelled, fruit being taken off of trees, etc. Back in 1976, Bigfoot researcher Bob Stamps and his partner took several plaster casts of footprints and interviewed family members who had heard and seen the creature. The most recent sighting happened in January of this year. My 61-year old brother-in-law was chopping wood and breaking kindling approximately 40 feet from his house near the edge of the woods. It was early evening and he was just about to finish when he happened to look up and caught the sight of the creature out of the corner of his eye. At that point, the creature was approximately 15-18 feet away from him, standing in enough of a clearing so that he could see him from the waist up (due to thick underbrush he could not see any further down). He estimated the creature to be 7-8 feet tall with a slight hunch. He froze for a minute and then dropped the wood that was in his hands and ran inside of the house. By the time he entered the house he was visibly shaken and according to my sister, he was "as white as a ghost." The hair on his arms were standing on end caused by physical reaction of goosebumps due to the state he was in. He was having difficulty breathing and therefore was having a hard time speaking. All he could say was "Buh...buh...buh..." My sister and niece thought he was having a heart attack and were fearing for his life. When he was finally able to calm down, all he could get out was "Bigfoot. I just saw Bigfoot."

Since my brother-in-law was snapping kindling over his knees, we have come to the conclusion that it was this noise that drew the creature to him.

ALSO NOTICED: There was no noticable odor. The creature was approx. 7-8 feet in height; his coat was reddish brown with areas of gray.

OTHER WITNESSES: None.

OTHER STORIES: I have several stories to relate, too many to write here.

TIME AND CONDITIONS: Time: Approx. 4-5 PM.
Lighting: Dusk
Weather: Clear

ENVIRONMENT: The property is 2 1/2 acres of mostly open land, except on the west and south side of the property line which is densly wooded. There are several creeks and ravines, ponds and small lakes in the area.

Follow-up investigation report:

I spoke to the submitter of the report, who found tracks on the property, and also her brother-in-law, who had the close encounter. I found the statements of both witnesses to be very compelling.

The submitter of the report lives out of state now, but grew up at the location of the incidents. She returns to the area for visitation with relatives. She told of several occurrences that the family believed related to bigfoot. She found large, barefoot tracks out by the pond. A bigfoot researcher took casts of the tracks and told her that he thought a juvenile sasquatch was responsible for making them.

The family has smelled peculiar and strong odors from time to time; they've heard loud, deep, ominous growls from within the woods and they've heard loud, heavy-sounding footsteps on the gravel driveway at night.

The submitter's brother-in-law would occasionally find the gate of the chain-linked fence lifted up off its hinges and placed to the side. The family was at a loss as to what or who exactly was going to the trouble of lifting the gate up off the hinges merely to place the gate just beside the gateway.

The brother-in-law had an extraordinary encounter in January 2003 while gathering and breaking kindling. I spoke directly with him about the incident. He told me that he knew in an instant what he was seeing, as the encounter was at a distance of no more than fifteen feet; the chain-linked fence was all that separated the two. The witness told me that his nerves were shaken to the core, and that he was "all choked up." He said he looked at it for a few seconds before hurriedly turning and fleeing to the house. He recalled the animal doing the same thing; as the witness turned, the animal turned and escaped off into the thicker woods.

The witness could not recall facial details per se, but he did say that to the best of his recollection, it had a "unique face" and the animal was covered in red-brownish hair with gray interspersed. He estimated that its height was no less than seven feet. The creature initiated no aggressive behavior or sounds. Upon entering the house, the witness tried to explain to his wife what he had just witnessed, but had much difficulty talking. Finally he was able to enunciate "bigfoot - I saw a bigfoot."

About three months later, he heard a loud, deep growl from the woods which badly scared him and a nearby dog.

The witness said he doesn't speak of these events with neighbors for fear of ridicule. The family keeps it all within, although it may be a safe assumption that they are not the only ones in the area who may be encountering these animals.

Report # 2353 (Class B)
Submitted by witness on Thursday, May 03, 2001. Large unseen creature intimidates fishermen
YEAR: 1995

SEASON: Fall

MONTH: September

DATE: 8:30 pm

STATE: Oklahoma

COUNTY: Cleveland County

LOCATION DETAILS: it is a little river preserve and very wooded on one side of the river.

NEAREST TOWN: norman, ok

NEAREST ROAD: franklin road

OBSERVED: I went fishing with a friend at Lake Thunderbird about 6 years ago. We started fishing in the afternoon as the day went on we stayed till it got in to the evening. As we were fishing later in the evening me and my friend started hearing strange noise from the other side of Little River which runs in to the lake. It sounded like a very large man breathing and it was getting closer to us. Then me and my friend started to notice the animals around us were going the other way from the noise. It made me think there is something out there and it coming this way. I started to get very nervous because we could hear branches breaking and it was getting closer to the other side of the river. I became real nervous when my friend said look at all the birds flying the opposite way and in a hurry. Then we heard a loud splash in the water and we figured it was time to go. That something was very upset with our presence in the area. I told all my friends about it they thought I was crazy and to this day I have never been back in the area to fish. I have grown up in the southside of Okc all my life towards the lake and have never heard anything like that before and will never forget the sound it made and the animals running away.

ALSO NOTICED: Just the branches I could see on the other side of the river breaking above my head and I knew there was nothing I had ever seen that could do that.

OTHER WITNESSES: just me and my friend

OTHER STORIES: a lot of people say they hear noise outside at night. in that area.

TIME AND CONDITIONS: typical fall night not too cold yet.

ENVIRONMENT: deep river and on a known deer hunting area.

Follow-up investigation report:

After contacting the witness the following details can be added:

1. The witnesses had powerful flashlights with them.
2. The witnesses were directly across the river from the commotion, an area accessible by means of Franklin Road.
3. The sounds of breaking branches and grunting noises were first noted at a distance of about 200 yards. Whatever was making the noise approached to about fifty feet. Witnesses believed it was attempting to intimidate them.
3. One of the witnesses stands about 6' 4"; the branches seen and heard being broken were above a height that could be reached by him.
4. The breathing sounds heard were described as, "like a grunting but very loud."
5. Witness is an avid fisherman. He is a state employee, married, 33 years of age.

Report # 62282 (Class A)
Submitted by witness on Monday, December 17, 2018.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Family has an early evening sighting while driving outside Oklahoma City
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
(Show Printer-friendly Version)
YEAR: 2013

SEASON: Fall

STATE: Oklahoma

COUNTY: Cleveland County

LOCATION DETAILS: At this time i don't want to share this information. It is very close to my home and I am still coming to terms with what we saw.

NEAREST TOWN: Oklahoma City

OBSERVED: We had lived out here for about 4 years at the time. We were driving down the dirt road and stopped by the apartment style mailboxes about a half mile or so from the house. While stopped I was talking to my husband and my oldest son started to mumble something but couldn't quite get it out. I look back at him and he's pointing towards the front of the truck. I look up but don't see anything at first. My husband was looking as well but didn't see anything either. Then I saw it. I couldn't speak either. I started slapping my husbands arm and pointed. It was across the road on the other side of the creek and up a little ways. It was on the left side of the fence which is thick brush. On the right was an open pasture which will hold cattle in rotation. At the time there were cattle in rotation but they were all huddled up across the pasture and right up next to the feed road. it was very tall...it looked like it could bend over and touch the ground on the right side of the fence without getting hurt by the barbwire. It stood there and then I think it noticed our truck and looked our way. It swung an arm out as it turned to look our way. I got scared and started to drive away. My son yelled to go back. I had only driven about 15 feet if that and I put the truck in reverse and when I backed it up the thing was gone. My husband says it has to have been a cow. I thought for years it had to have been a bear. But deep down I know that was no bear. When it turned it had a flat face not a bear snout. It didn't appear to be scared of us it was more of an uh oh moment. When it turned towards our truck and saw us it froze. I didn't move at all once it saw the truck. It was gone in seconds. Its been five years and we still don't like to run out to the truck after dark. We are in a secluded area an we all stay to ourselves out here. we don't talk about this to anyone and this is the first time we have shared our story. My whole little family saw this thing. So we have four people who now believe this thing is real. Since then we have continued to hear the low growls in the woods. What sounds like careful steps at night. I tell myself its a deer or something but I no longer believe its our typical wildlife.

ALSO NOTICED: When we rolled the windows down it was creepy quiet. The cattle, dogs and wildlife seemed to all be holding their breath.

OTHER WITNESSES: 4. just driving to dinner.

OTHER STORIES: I haven't.

TIME AND CONDITIONS: it was late fall and early evening.

ENVIRONMENT: it was near a creek. Dense woods and cattle farms.

Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Bill S.:

I spoke to the witness for over an hour by phone. She was very pleasant and thoughtful during the discussion. At the time of the incident, it was early evening. They were about to turn off a dirt road and on to a now paved road, when the older son started pointing. It was at the 11 o’clock position in front of the truck at a distance of about 100 yards.

Her first thought was a bear. But the witness is well versed in the outdoors as she and her father were avid hunters early in her life. She “has seen bears, and bear sign and even knows what they smell like”. But then she realized this was not a bear. It did not have a snout. It had a flat face. It was not black and not grey it was a “smoky black” in color and it was huge. It was on the other side of a 6 row barbed wire fence that is 5 feet high. Ranchers will often keep their fence row clean by clearing out a 3-4 foot swath on the other side of the fence. It was standing in that cleaned area on the other side. She said the fence came up to the creature's waist. After some discussion and thought, we agreed if that was the case, the creature was between 8 – 9 feet tall. I asked her to estimate the creature’s weight. She instantly said 800 to 900 pounds. Sue has horses and is around a lot of cattle and has loaded cattle into trucks etc. So she is used to seeing large animals and estimating what they could weigh.

Sue called it a “him”. I asked her why she said that, and she said that she just got the feeling it was male and that “he was there with a purpose as if to do a job or protect something”. It had a flat face with a rounded head but a pronounced brow like a Cro-Magnon man. It had hair on its body and the hair was 2 inches but no more than 3 inches in length on its arm when it moved the arm. Its arms were very long. She emphasized that a few times just how long they were. When it realized they were there it turned to face them and sort of swung its left arm as if to point at them and then it rested both hands on the barbed wire fence and became as still as a statue as if it could not be seen if it was not moving. She said it rested its hands on the fence sort of like you would teach your young children, that this is a fence that can hurt you so you have to be careful touching it.

At this point, fear crept into the family and she was urged to drive away. She turned onto the paved road and drove 10 to 15 feet. She stopped and backed up about 30 feet. When they looked back the creature was gone. She was amazed because the brush behind the creature is incredibly thick brush with thorns and poison oak and poison ivy. She could not believe a man could have that quickly entered the brush, let alone something this big. She even commented that it was like it just vanished. She stated a couple of times that it was just GONE. The incident lasted between 30 – 45 seconds. She also noted that before and during the sighting it was eerily quiet on both sides of the truck. No birds or other sounds, but interestingly, after the creature left there were sounds on the left side (away) from the creature, but none on the right side of the truck.

She stated that she was getting goosebumps just retelling the story to me over the phone. We visited more about where they live and the surrounding area. She told me that occasionally they will hear what sounds like bipedal footsteps around the house. She emphasized that much like other rural areas, no person is dumb enough to walk on other people’s property at night as there is a decent chance it will get you shot.
