"Hey, last night I was driving home from camping at Clinton Lake and saw a deer running across the road, so I slowed down to make sure she didn't have any buddies with her. At that time I saw red eyes looking at my truck. Like eye shine when a deer looks in a light, but just a dark red. I grabbed my mag light and shined it towards them and it was something like a dog. The back legs were shorter than the front, little to no hair, and the size of a Great Dain. It was well built, it's mouth was open and had the teeth of a K-9. It took 3 steps to get across a two-lane road.
I was raised in the woods and I'm a hunting guide. I've seen coyotes with mange and with defects. I've been 10 yards from a bear and closer to a mountain lion, but when those red eyes looked at me, fear shot into me and I couldn't move. I actually started to shake. By the time I thought about taking a photo with my cell phone he was gone. The whole thing lasted around 35 seconds."
During our conversation I asked him if there was any chance that what he saw could have been a Bigfoot, to which he replied: "I've never seen a Bigfoot and don't know how they act, but this looked like something that spends most of its time on all 4 legs."
When it crossed the road it was on 4 legs but once it was in the field he said it appeared to stand up and then went down on all fours again and continued running.
