October 1998 - Bigfoot-Like Creature Encounter, Bramham, Yorkshire, UK

[Recently Found Account 21/09/2019]

It has taken me along time to come forward with what happened to me that day, but I feel that I am ready to finally tell all. It happened years ago in the month of October back in 1998, myself and my family lived in a rural area of Yorkshire in a village called Bramham. It's a countryside area, with lots of farms, a quarry and some rivers and streams, I liked to walk my dog around the lanes and tracks when I had finished work of an evening as it was a way for me to wind down and get some air. On that particular evening I'm out walking with my dog down a long farm track, a route we often take. It was early evening so it was about 8 pm and it had gotten dark.

Myself and the dog are just walking along, I let the dog off the lead so he could have a run as we are about half a mile up this single farm track by then and there were no animals or people around, so I let him have a sniff around. As I walked the dog is just doing his own thing. It was quiet with no sign of anyone around. I was enjoying the walk, there are hedges on both sides of the track the whole way so its hard to see clearly into the fields, and there are some woods to one side of me. As we walked even further along the track the dog suddenly stops, he freezes and looks up the track in the direction we are walking.

He must be aware of something up there as he starts growling and acting all strange, his hackles are up and he growls continuously. At that point I'm thinking it must be a fox, which is the way he's acted before if we came across one. So I'm looking at the track to try and see a fox. I can't see anything anywhere. No fox, no cat or any other animal. I can see how worked up he is, as now he is going mad and starts barking loudly. I had carried on walking so by this point he was a short way behind me. So I turn to the dog to try and calm him but he won't stop, if anything he's getting worse. Something has really spooked him so I turn to look up the track and I couldn't believe my eyes.

Standing there looking at us was this thing. A massive creature stood there looking back in our direction. It must have walked between 8 to 9 foot steps out onto the field track before I had seen it, and now I can see it clearly and it can see us. At this point I'm in complete shock at what I was seeing. I kept thinking "it can't be real." I honestly don't think my brain couldn't process what I was seeing, because standing there in the field track was a huge creature of some kind. It was massively built and was about 5 foot wide across the shoulders and about 8 ft tall. I couldn't make out any facial features as the face was in shadow, but I could make out that it was covered in hair, it was standing about 30 meters from me so I could see it clearly but I could not make out any features even from that distance. It made no sound and I never smelled or heard anything.

To my disbelief at that moment the dog runs straight towards it, the dog's barking as he runs in its direction. But the dog stopped about 15 meters away from this thing, he was clearly scared and just didn't know how to react. He had completely forgotten about me and that's a first for my dog. Usually he would put my needs first and maybe that what he was doing as he was by now in between me and this creature. But I could tell I was the last thing on his mind at this point. The dog barks a few more times then he turns and runs straight past me and back up the farm track to safety the way we came in. No doubt now you can imagine how stunned I was.

The whole incident had lasted only seconds and I was just stood there paralysed and trying to process what I had just seen. I must of been in shock, because what I did next I did without conscious thought, and I can't explain why I did it. But as I stood there looking at this creature I nod my head quickly and I say "alright" to it (I know thats crazy but that's what I did). Then I just calmly turned around and just started walking back down the field track after my dog, all the time listening for this creature coming behind me. I was completely sh*tting myself. I think I acted without thinking as I never looked back up that track until I got to the dog and I couldn't see anything in the field anymore when I did.

I didn't report this for years and years, until other people came forward in secret and started to share their accounts online with each other. I had no idea what a Bigfoot was back then. Now years on from seeing them online, I can say without doubt it looked like it was an exact match. I have spoken with this witness on numerous occasions, and I did get in touch this week to let him know another person had come forward from the same area. BR

North Wales, UK “I live in Britain and used to spend a lot of my time at a location in North Wales. I'll keep the exact location anonymous for personal reasons. Anyway this area was heavily wooded for miles and deep in the valleys, it had a spot where a natural waterfall was. I used to come to this spot to enjoy the peace and quiet and would camp out overnight on occasion. This area was off limits to the public due to dangerous rock falls I was led to believe. I also heard that in the past people used to come down there to be married in some nearby caves and sure enough there was a stone alter carved into the natural rock in one of the caves. Apparently though this custom had stopped about a hundred years back due the unsafe nature of geology and the fact a woman had died after falling down a ravine and indeed the area was rumoured to be haunted.

I would from time to time although alone feel like I was being watched, this never bothered me during the daylight hours but at night this feeling was so intense I felt compelled to keep the fire lit all night. Other instances there included tree knocking which at first I took to be chopping noises, this happened often during the day although I could never find any sign of any woodman no matter how hard I searched, it strangely happened twice one night also. Another night I heard what I thought was somebody making owl noises at me, it sounded like a human was making the sound and not quite like a real owl would sound.

The last night I ever spent in the area I was camped down by the steam and heard what I at first took to be a woman's scream, but it sounded off somehow and I knew nobody could have been there other than myself, it almost bellowed through me this sound, sure it could have been an animal but certainly nothing I'd ever encountered before, before that night was out I had a huge rock thrown in my direction and again that ear splitting scream. I never when back there after these experiences and probably never will. What I felt and heard haunted me for years, I rationalised the sounds to perhaps be ghosts and worried that I was a victim of some sort of haunting but after hearing the similarities between what I experienced and what others experience due to possible Bigfoot encounters perhaps such creatures live in remote areas of the UK also?
