Hi there, newbie here with a story that, unfortunately, is second-hand. This 'sighting' came to me via my boyfriend's coworker and requires a
little bit of background information.
My boyfriend and I both lived in western Oklahoma at the time. He was working for a water disposal well that was located, literally, in the middle of
nowhere. It was 20 minutes away from civilization, except for one little gas station about 5 miles away. The site itself was about the size of a
football field and surrounded by trees, hills, and grass. To say it's a spooky place at night is a bit of an understatement. Honestly, it scared me
half to death.
This disposal ran 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Employees worked 12 hour shifts, one that ran from noon to midnight (my boyfriend's shift) and one
that ran from midnight to noon (his coworker's shift). Since it ran all night long, the owner installed stadium-style lights around the site, so that
you could see everything from one end of the site to the other, but absolutely NOTHING outside its perimeter.
On this particular night I was at the site visiting my boyfriend. During summer the guys there didn't have much to do, so most of their time was
spent sitting inside a tiny metal building watching TV and drinking Mt. Dew. It was around 11:45 p.m. and he was sweeping the building out and getting
ready to go home. At 11:50, his coworker walked in.
Right then we both noticed that something was wrong. The guy was pale, he was tensed up, and it looked like all he could do to keep from passing out.
My boyfriend asked him what was wrong, and he said that he'd been driving down the gravel road to the site when "something" stepped out in front of
He described the 'something' as being bipedal, very large, covered in hair, and with a slouching gait. I suggested that it was possibly a bear,
since, while they are very rare in these parts, are not unheard of. The guy shook his head and said "No, not a bear." He told us that the thing had
stepped into the road about 50 feet ahead, just far enough to be seen in the headlights, but too far away to really tell exactly what it was. It had,
according to him, walked into the road, paused for a moment to look toward the car (the coworker slammed on his brakes as soon as he saw it) and
walked off the road and into the shadows.
While it was quite common to see bobcats, coyotes, and all manner of critters out there, we couldn't think of anything that walked on two legs.
Midnight came and my boyfriend and I left, but we didn't see anything at all suspicious on the drive home.
After that night (because I have an over-developed sense of curiosity) I prompted my boyfriend to ask his coworker about the incident several times.
Each time, his coworker refused to talk about what happened, or even acknowledge that it happened.
I like to think of myself as a logical person, but I'm drawing a blank here. The only thing I can think of is that the guy was falling asleep at the
wheel (it was midnight, after all) and he thought he saw something. It's happened to me before, though never quite so vividly - normally I think I
see something out of the corner of my eye, turn, and realize I was just imagining things.
So what do you think? I found this site by accident and it made me think of that night. It also made me wonder if anyone has any idea of what else it
