Possible track found at well site near Deane
COUNTY: Letcher County
NEAREST TOWN: Deane
NEAREST ROAD: Highway 7
OBSERVED: Me and another person was walking up a hollow below a hollowfill. The area was very marshy as beavers have been damming up the streams. We came upon an area where the stream split in two. There was a large rock on the “island” and next to it we found an odd looking impression in the mud. It was approximately 14 inches in length and roughly twice as wide as my steel toe boot. I have three photographs of it. One photo shows my boot next to it. I’m not sure if what I saw is anything. But the photos clearly show what looks to me like toes but I could just want to see more than what is actually there. If you want copies of the photos, let me know.
OTHER WITNESSES: 1, we were walking up the stream bed.
OTHER STORIES: There have been other reports in the area. Some though are a bit questionable.
TIME AND CONDITIONS: Early morning, sunny, clear
ENVIRONMENT: The area was kind of a marsh due to beavers working in the area. We were in a hollow.
Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Don Adkins:
I spoke with the witness on two separate occasions about his track find. The location where the tracks were found is in a remote area at a natural gas well-drilling site. The area is rough terrain with a heavy forest and many coal mining sites. He emailed me the photos, and I found them to be very interesting. The witness has also heard calls similar to internet recordings of Sasquatch in the past and has reported them to us. This area is close to where Report #26036 occurred.
This is the photo including his boot for comparison.
