The initial report stated that the figure ran away. I find it exceptionally unlikely that a woman would be wandering the forest in a knee length dress in the rather miserable conditions seen in the photograph. Furthermore, I don't think breaking into a sprint would be a persons instant reaction. In the conditions we can be relatively certain that if the photographer wasn't able to tell if said figure was a human or otherwise, than the figure itself had no clear view of the photographer either.
The initial report doesn't say that the figure ran away.
The initial report says:
Attached is a photo I took in rural Clackamas County, Oregon in 1997.
It is of something that was walking along the top of the hill. When it noticed me, it turned and headed in the opposite direction. The ground was very hard and no real footprints were able to be found. I had sent this to a friend of mine Rob Butler, he said he would forward it around for me. I just got hooked up with e mail so I am sending another copy out. On this one, there is a close up superimposed in the bottom corner.

Even if she did notice him/pay any close attention to him, the woman would probably not have run for her life. Personally, were I wandering the forest in a knee length dress on a cold day, as you do, I doubt I would be the least perturbed by someone taking photographs. In fact, I often see photographers when I go walking. Now if I ran sprinting every time I saw a photographer in the forest, I would never get anywhere.

I doubt highly that what we see in this image is any normal woman. I find it more likely to believe that perhaps the photograph was deliberately faked, or that the being seen is a Wild Man/Bigfoot.

She seems to be wearing a coat, not a dress, just my observation of course, and I could be wrong.
If I were out walking in the forest, which I do almost every morning and I noticed a stranger in the gully below me taking photos, I'd turn and walk straight back to my house. The photographer would probably describe it as me "turning and heading in the opposite direction". Just saying.

... and if the photo was anything other than of a regular human you have to ask why the photogragher took only one picture. Some "researchers" have a knack of making things appear more mysterious than they actually are.

Probably because she told him to stop taking pics and get off of her property. :D

I'm a believer in the menacing big dog phenomenon, yet the sasquatch research team who took the photo missed this obvious explanation. It's better than a mystery washer-woman which was the official conclusion, right? Attached is a photo I took in rural Clackamas County, Oregon in 1997. It is of something that was walking along the top of the hill

(..not everything in the woods is a bigfoot nor a woman in a knee-length coat!
ok, maybe i'm nitpicking, but this guy fancies himself as an official researcher, yet this is the best photo he can take? come on! you'd think he would have some sophisticated camera to get the shot, wouldn't ya?
this looks to me like a rotted tree trunk.

Even if that's true, the image showing a bigfoot/werewolf/Fozzie Bear is much more unlikely.

looks like some lady in the woods. she could have been checking on a certain crop that i hear grows nicely out that way. upon seeing the bigfoot hunter and his impressive camera taking pics in the woods, she may have thought better to elude possible authorities and be a suspect in a bigfoot caper, rather than interact with some stranger in her neck of the woods. ahh, to be a sasquatcharazzi  :blush:

it looks like the upper hand, is on the other foot.

i guess they would say we could set this world ablaze

i have never tried to succeed at anything, therefore i have never failed.

So when I go walking in the middle of nowhere by myself (which I often do) I am no longer a woman? When I see other walkers in the middle of nowhere I usually walk the other direction to them because guess what when I'm out there I want to be ALONE.
How far away from civilisation do you walk alone though? Not very far I bet, unlike the sasquatch researcher.

The object, known by the locals as "Bicho Voador" (Flying Animal), or "Bicho Sugador" (Sucking Animal), has the shape of a rounded ship and attacks people in isolation.

This doesn't really look like the posture of a werewolf on its hind legs anyway. The arms are a dead giveaway.
The arms are a defining feature which suggests it's a werewolf and non-human at least. If you picked a dog up under it's front legs from behind they would splay out in this locked position since they don't have the ball and socket shoulder joints like us. See the artist's impression below to se what I mean. The legs in the photo also show a curve similar to the hind quarters of a dog which is another defining feature imo.

Not only a werewolf, but a MALE one as well. The arms are a dead give away for that.
Especially because the pic is so far away, and all black with no detail or defining features, and the blur helps us see its a male werewolf too.
:hmm:
Come on Humble. You cant really make out anything here.

There's no way of knowing the arms are locked in this position. You do realize when you swing your arms while walking, they stick out to the side? Also, when navigating bumpy terrain, you often put your arms out slightly to the side for stability.

A woman in a long coat walking down the hill carefully. There is nothing in this picture to show the figure is anything more than this.

ETA -- The idea that a woman could not possibly walk around in the woods alone is just sexist. Plenty of women go hiking in the wilds by themselves, just like men do. Ridiculous.

I for one, purposely walk through the woods dressed as a woman. Just to have people get pics like this.

Well since the nearest town is a 45 minute car journey and nearest city probably an hour and a half away I say pretty far from civilization.
