B.C. FILE#10160
LOCATION: About 1 mile up Bridal Falls, F.S.R. Fraser Valley, and British Columbia
DATE @ TIME: June 19th, 2008, Aprox 2:30 a.m.
REPORT BY: Thomas Steenburg

At 12 noon June 2nd, 2008 an old acceptance whom used to work here at the mill where I lived pulled in to inform me that his wife was told by a friend at work that she and her husband encountered what she thought was a Sasquatch during the early morning hours of the pervious Thursday, (June 19th) somewhere on Mount Cheam? No details were available but a phone call was placed to his wife at work and she agreed to ask the witness involved if she would be willing to tell me about what she and her husband had seen? Later the main witness in this case, a man whom only wanted to use his first name contacted me. He than gave me a brief description of what had happened and was prepared to leave it at that since he really did not want to talk to anybody about this and I had the feeling that he was not happy that B.., (The Second witness) had told friends about it. I informed him that identity would be kept secret if that is what he wished later that afternoon I interviewed them at their Rosdale home.

A. No. Well, were reporting it to you, Ha. You can take the heat for it. Ha.

Q. Describe your general out doors experience for me.

A. Outdoors since I was a kid. Camping, hiking, hunting, Fishing all the time, Every where from the Queen Charlottes to Australia. Been in the outback, been in the mountains, every back road from here to Cranbrook. Prince George to Dawson Creek. I've been to the Arctic Circle. Umm back east, all over the bush in Quebec, Logged probably hundreds of miles in the bush.

Q. Where there any other witnesses.

A. No, just B.... Well she didn't see it though. She was fildling with the CDs, or something.

Q. What do you think it was?

A. No idea. No idea, it was a bipedal, upright, something? I don't know, I don't know. I don't believe in the Bigfoot/Sasquatch that much, at all, umm.

Q. Do you still feel that way?

A. Umm, yeah. I don't, I mean this is the first experience I've had. With anything like this out there, and like I say I have logged, hundreds of miles out there, easily, My truck has 138'000 kms on it and I would say half of those were in the bush.

Q. Just go over what happened for me?

A. Driving down the hill in 4 low, going maybe 4 miles an hour, just put it in 4 low and let the engine do the work. Just driving when all of a sudden, up he came, across, up the other side he went.

Q. Have any of your friends or family members ever reported an incident like this before?

A. Not that I know about.

Q. Have every made a report like this at any other time to anyone else?

A. No.

Q. Do you think it was a Sasquatch?

A. I don't know what it was?

Q, At this time you are not prepared to say that it was a Sasquatch?

No. I don't know what it was! I don't know! I am going to go up there some more though, ha ha.

Q. For the record you wish to remain anonymous?

A. Yes. Very much.

STEENBURG NOTE: After the interview with N... was done I talked to his wife B.... She was in the car when this occurred but was not looking to the front during the few seconds the subject was in view.

Q. Do you also wish to remain anonymous?

A. Yes sir.

Q. Just tell what happened and what you were doing at the time this occurred?

A. We were coming down the hill and I was not paying attention to the road, I was looking at CDs, looking for my cigarettes, suddenly he grabbed me by the left arm, quite hard, and he said, "Did you just see that big person cross the road!" I saw nothing. Nothing at all, so I asked him a bunch of questions.

Q. What sort of questions did you ask?

A. I ask him umm, Was it a man or a woman, he said, "I don't Know". Was he warring cloths, like pants or a shirt? He said, "No". I than asked was he naked? He said "No" than he said, "He was hairy". Than we both stooped at that moment, (Referring to pulling the truck over just after passing the spot} and I asked, "Did you just see a Sasquatch"? And he replies "No! There no such thing as Sasquatch". So I asked was it a bear? But bears do not walk like that on their hind legs; we went through the list you know. Could it have been a hoax, but why would somebody be doing that way out here early hours of a Thursday morning, walking aimlessly through the bush? We had pulled over and he grabbed my hand and put it to his chest. Hiss heart was beating so strongly that he saw something! But again not knowing exactly what he saw. I have known him for 5 years and his reaction was completely out of the ordinary. He does not scare easily but something did spook him this time.

Q. You never saw the animal?

A. I didn't see a thing.

Q. Who did you talk to about it?

A. I was at work and I was telling my workmate L-----. (With held upon request)

Q. Thatís how I found out.

A. Yeah. So. She actually phoned me this morning with your phone number.

Q. You don't mind that she told me?

A. No. She asked me at work yesterday. And I said I don't know. I know N... said he didn't want to tell anybody cause he doesnít want to be perceived as being crazy or what have you but yes, she said, well she phoned and said well heres the number, you know if you want to call you can call. So I passed it on to him and he called you.

Q. Do you think he saw a Sasquatch?

A. Thatís what my feeling is, A, from his reaction, By the way he described it. Umm, thatís just the feeling I have. But of course I have allway believed that they were out there, so.

Q. You have obviously heard stories growing up in Abbottsford, but have never seen anything yourself?

A. No. No never. I came from northern B.C. but when I moved down here around Agassis where the stories are everywhere, but know nothing.

STEENBURG NOTE: The next day after this interview (June 22, 2008, 3 days after it happened) N... took Bill Miller and myself to the spot where this sighting took place. A search by Bill and myself did not find any footprints or any real evidence to indicate that a Sasquatch did cross the road. But there had been rain in the mean time and we did find a spot that seemed to indicate that something or someone had crossed the road. Broken ferns and flattened grass, broken small branches. So I am convinced something had crossed the road at this spot recently. What remains the question? N... still will not say that it was a Sasquatch he saw. Though he can't picture a man walking up through this steep country at 2 a.m. in pitch darkness traveling as fast and graceful as what he saw did. Personal I am prepared to say that if the Sasquatch does indeed exist I think this man saw one cross in front of his truck just after 2 A.M, Thursday June 19th, 2008.
