The following is an account of a Sasquatch sighting in New Aiyansh in the fall of 2000. The name of the man who told the story has been withheld at his request.
“MARK MILLER” is not a man who ever believed in Sasquatch. A skeptic by nature he never believed in anything for which there is no proof.
The stories he heard about Sasquatch when he was growing up in New Aiyansh (100km N. of Terrace BC) were told as cautionary tales to keep children from wandering into the forest unattended. But late last fall the unbeliever saw something that simply didn’t fit into any category of animal he’d ever seen. “I’m not one of those kind of people,” he says of enthusiasts who try to seek out the Sasquatch. “The evidence has to be pretty damn strong for me to believe, but I just couldn’t pass this off as being anything else.”
At eight o’clock in the morning — in broad daylight — Mark was getting ready for work. As he looked out his back window towards a forested area that borders his and his neighbour’s property, Miller saw a man walking toward his house.
The first thing Miller recalls is that the man was wearing a shirt the same dark colour as his pants. There happened to be road construction underway just beyond his property and he assumed that it was one of the workers dressed in overalls.
The man was average height, maybe 5’5”, walking upright just like a normal person would. But when the man got closer, 200 feet from Miller’s window, he realised that what he saw was neither human or animal. The creature came into the clearing between his house and his neighbour’s and searched out for a branch on one of the trees.
“I just thought it was a person. It’s arm went down to the branch and pulled the branch down and I saw that his arm was hairy,” he said. “I saw the hair very clearly it was really kind of freaky.”
The hair was dark and thick except under its armpits and along the side of its body where it was lighter and more sparse. Its chest looked like that of a gorilla though he says the rest of the creature appeared remarkably human. Its body resembled that of a fit, young body builder with a V shaped torso, thick neck, defined muscles, broad shoulders, thin hips and even nipples on its chest. “You really got the sense that it was a human creature,” he says. It crouched down onto its haunches like a backcatcher while it looked toward Miller’s neighbour’s property. It put its fist down on the ground to steady itself as Mark watched transfixed. “I didn’t even want to accept what I had seen,” he says.
After about six seconds the creature turned to face the window where Miller was watching it. It froze for a split second, turned towards the wooded area and disappeared into the woods. “It was as scared as I was,” says Miller.
Being a skeptic, Miller didn’t want to accept that what he had seen could have been a Sasquatch. He tried in vain to get the image of the creature out of his head. An experienced hunter and outdoorsman Miller racked his brain trying to convince himself he had seen some sort of an animal. But as time went on there was no denying that what he had seen was so human-like that it had to be a Sasquatch.
After word spread that Miller had seen this creature elders told him that it was a blessing, but Miller’s not so sure. “Some people say ‘I’d love to see that,’ but when you do see it you wish you hadn’t,” he said. “I’m still kind of traumatized by it.”
