This story takes place in Idaho back in 1980.
Two fishermen were heading back to their truck when they saw something big step out onto the trail in front of them.
The men were unsure if what they were seeing was a deer, bear or something else. As if the being sensed it being observed, it turned around to face them. The men claimed it had bright fluoesant green eyes and was 8 feet off of the ground.
They took off in the opposite direction, but the creature followed them. They tried to drive it off by banging sticks together and yelling at it, but the thing remained unmoving, standing in observation of the men.
The men never said if the creature had fur, but these glowing green eyes remind me of Stan Gordon’s book, “Silent Invasion” where green eyed, and red eyed bigfoot were commonly spotted during a u.f.o flap in Pennsylvania. Some were even reported to have exited these landed crafts leading to speculation that Bigfoot might actually be an extraterrestrial being.
In Stan Gordan’s “Silent Invasion”, a strong connection is drawn between Bigfoot sightings and u.f.o. sightings. In fact, in some more rare cases, Bigfoot like creatures have been seen exiting ufo crafts and walking off into the woods. To do what, who knows, probably to show up as a dark blob on someone’s video or picture.
When people describe these bigfoot-like creatures in the book, however, the description is more canid rather than simian. Typically the creatures are described as having long arms, past the thighs, eyes are luminous red and sometimes, on rare occasions, green. The snout is long and dog-like. The ears are pointed, like a dog’s.
It doesn’t stop with the strange description of the bigfoot/dogman like creatures that are seen around the ufo craft. Often times it would appear that these creatures have powers of some sort. From being shot at point blank range, but instead of dying, they simply de-materialize. To a particularly odd account of an albino Bigfoot walking down a street, holding a glowing orb while a strange craft hovers over the creature, appearing to be following it.
If you are as interested in the “bigfoot/ufo connection” as I am, then “Silent Invasion” is a must have. Link in the discripty.
