Tall manlike creature seen while on a family outing near The Pas
LOCATION DETAILS: Near Clearwater Lake Prov. Park.
Specific location withheld to protect the witness.
NEAREST TOWN: The Pas
NEAREST ROAD: Hwy 10 and Clearwater Lake Hwy
OBSERVED: I am reporting on behalf of my son. He is a very truthful child. He has never been able to forget what he saw that day so we have decided to report to the organization about the encounter for the benefit of research.
My son was out in the forest, as he loves to do, near Clearwater Lake that spring day in 2007. Most of the time he does not become separated from family, but this time he did lose track of them, they were not to far off but missed the sighting. Also note, this is the time of year when you easily reach into the stream and grab fish right out of the water. Anyways, he stopped at the entrance of the trail that leads into a wooded area. He clearly saw a very tall manlike creature scraping on tree with both hands then pounding with one hand raised upward. The sound was loud. With a very human like action he paused, turned his head and body and looked at the boy. My son became shocked, cried and left the trail area having viewed the manlike creature within a couple of minutes. His description is that creature was almost approx... the height of our living room ceiling (8 ft.) as I asked him to use a comparison. When asked if male or female, he couldn't be sure but stated possibly male. He was dark, black, long and/or medium hair that appeared dirty, short hair on face but not covering the eyes or mouth areas, slightly peaked head but still rounded, I asked him to draw a shape and it looked like an upside down between a V and U. He also remembers the massive arms and hunched over appearance. Sometimes he is unwilling to talk about it.
ALSO NOTICED: no sounds other than the tree knocking, no one went back to the exact spot to look for evidence.
OTHER WITNESSES: none, the child's relatives were approx. 200 ft. away and did not see the creature.
OTHER STORIES: yes, there are many other credible reports from this general area including Big Eddy, Watchi Bay and Rocky Lake, but they have not all been reported. I will encourage them to send the details of their sightings to the BFRO. It amazes me that the manlike creature co-exists with people and have no or very few conflicts with humans, but this is the north and thousands of Km's are unexplored leaving the creature alot of area to call his own.
TIME AND CONDITIONS: early evening before dark perhaps cloudy but not raining
ENVIRONMENT: Heavy Boreal Forest with approx. 30% decidous and 70% coniferous tree's close to Clearwater Lake... is swampy in places, large lichens that hang from the trees, low juniper bushes, spawning fish are abundant in the spring, fresh clean water
