Does Bigfoot roam the forests of Ohio ? Image Credit: CC 2.0 Ashley Chile Baz
The young fitness enthusiast had been heading for her car when she witnessed something terrifying.
The unnamed 20-year-old had reportedly exited a gym in Ashland, Ohio at around midnight back on April 24th and had been walking across the well-lit car park when the sound of a twig snapping grabbed her attention.

Looking up, she caught sight of a large, bipedal ape-like creature covered in grey fur.

Standing around seven to eight feet in height, the creature - which she noted was far too big and bulky to be a man - moved with surprising speed as it quickly darted back under cover of the trees.

The woman was so shaken up by the encounter that she had to call her parents to drive her home.
According to California Bigfoot investigator Matt Moneymaker, her story has all the hallmarks of a genuine encounter. He also noted that her friends and colleagues had later made light of her story, prompting her to request that her name be removed from the online report.

"She isn't backing off what she claimed she saw," said Moneymaker.

"She stands by what she saw and so do her parents. She is a young woman and doesn't want people who may be ignorant making fun of her. I believe her and I do think it happened."

"This is not a hoax report."

Yeah, human beings are prone to lying as well.  Good point.

yep.. imo it's no different to youtube ufo things in the sky.. I'd suggest the vast majority of claims know exactly what it is they've filmed- it just looks a bit strange so they say I don't know what it is & call it a ufo.. but hey, what do we know

Four US Navy pilots flying Super hornets together over the ocean *say* they encountered a Tic Tac UFO for FIVE minutes, just jumping back and forth over the ocean. There were no other objects in sight, save the ocean. 5 minutes. Man.. and the US Navy is making Lieutenants of such crazy people? /sarc  Resume, telling me what  *other* people did, can never stand as evidence as to what everyone does, else eyewitness testimony would never be allowed. And you never did explain how many eyewitnesses get it CORRECT. funny that, eh? No,,, prejudice that.   PS to add: Resume, in this famous incident I ... [More]

Nice strawman.  Never even addressed the issue, and never said anyone, including pilots, were slackjawed.  Complete, utter fail.     ETA: And that crap doesn't belong in this thread.

Strawman?? Like your using inmates wrongfully convicted of crimes *possibly* due to misidentification wasn't? What's good for the goose...

You don't even know what a strawman is. straw man fallacy occurs,the first person is making. In replying to your post about eyewitness testimony, I presented evidence of its unreliability.  You, on the other hand, put words in my mouth. You have no idea of what I think of those pilot's reports because I've never expressed it anywhere in this thread or on this forum.
