70-80 miles north of Anchorage
The town closest to the sighting is Willow about 10 miles from Wasilla, maybe 70 or 80 miles north from Anchorage.
The witness lives near Willow, Alaska and was driving home very early in the morning, around 5 or 6 am. The month was August. Witness claims to have been driving along the highway, which is very scenic but very isolated even though it is the main highway to get north to Fairbanks. Not many houses & they are spread out for sometimes miles. Very thick, dense forest & foliage everywhere. Driving down a straight-a-way, he noticed something big wandering onto the road.
It came out of the woods from the left side of the highway. 100-150 ft
from it. It walked out very casually and got about to the middle yellow
lines. It briefly stopped, turned and glanced at the witness and his truck,
and then, as his exact words were, "Just booked."
I was surprised to hear him say that when he crossed the point where this thing crossed, he was shaking it freaked him out so bad. I asked him if he slowed down & looked where it went into the woods, he replied that he didn't even slow down. I asked, "what did you think it was when you first saw it, a bear, moose?"
He said when he first saw it he thought it was a man, a hitchhiker or backpacker, but quickly realized that it was covered in fur, and the size, it walked upright on two legs the whole time. He kept emphasizing the way it moved when it realized there was a truck coming down the road, how fast & different it moved.
He also told me that he knows "several" people who have seen the creatures in the Willow area. He said one person in particular, saw one up close for a "considerable amount of time"
