Description of Sighting by Josh:
On July 19, 2005 at 8:41 pm me and my brother Tim actually had an encounter! It was unbelievable! I am going to tell the whole story... Here we go!It all started when we got a phone call telling us we had a fresh 2 week old encounter located in Southern Virginia. So me, my dad, and my two brothers and T Lancaster went to the area that the witness saw the Sasquatch. The witness' name was Patricia. She told us all about the Sasquatch she saw. She said it was grey, very broad, matted dirty hair, and had a dome located on its head. After we talked to her, we decided to go ahead and go into the woods. My dad and T Lancaster went in the middle of the woods, My older brother went into a large field, and me and my little brother went to the outer edge of the woods. Me and my brother decided to enter into the woods, and we saw nothing. We left the woods and called my dad on our phone, and said we were heading back. He said to stay and watch carefully. My dad said he saw a glimpse of something REALLY fast and REALLY big! He also said he became disoriented. So me and my brother went back, and after we entered the woods, we waited for about 10 minites on a stump. Then my brother said, "OH MY GOD!" I asked him what is wrong, and he just pointed! I looked and saw about 80 feet in front of us a VERY LARGE creature, with gray hair, very matted looking, and looked about 8 or 9 feet tall! And I have to say, when you picture 8 or 9 feet tall in your mind, it is NOTHING compared to when you see it! He also had a dome on his head. Then my brother pointed back at it and said, "Josh! It is coming to us!!!" I looked and he was slowly walking in a curious way. My brother wanted to leave but I tried to remind him that you do not need to be frightened! Sasquatch won't hurt you! So we got closer, and he stopped! We stopped too! Then he just sped down the ditch we were near! And then we went to the edge of the ditch and saw him squatting down ignoring us too! We called my dad on the phone and told him what happened. By the time they got here, it was too late! I will always remember that evening!
