On a whim over the Thanksgiving weekend, last Friday, we decided to go spend the evening visiting the casinos in Shreveport. Since its just a few hours drive from Dallas we got started about 2:00 PM. Not knowing the thrill of the casino wasn’t all that was going to happen that night.
After leaving Shreveport on the way back to Dallas we unexpectedly encountered a very loud thump.
We moved from one casino to another a few times, but pretty much stayed together. When we left Shreveport sometime between 11:00 PM and Midnight we didn’t expect too much traffic. I-20 in east Texas isn’t lit up very well, and at night it gets pretty dark except for your lonely headlights. Occasionally you’ll encounter a slow-moving truck to pass, but overall its pretty silent.
As we were approaching Longview all of a sudden something darted into the front of the car, then we could hear a very loud thump. We expected it was probably a deer, (we had seen a few of them lining the gutters of the road earlier). We immediately pulled over and checked for damage, and to see what happened.
Poor Baby Bigfoot
Then we saw it, on the boundary between the road and the trees stood a creature about 7 feet tall, completely covered in hair, and was kneeling next to something, and then returning to a standing position. Could it be? Did we just have an interaction with a child Bigfoot? We became very upset, and at the same time, couldn’t believe it. We watched as this behemoth of a creature picked up the smaller creature and ran into the woods.
We didn’t know what we should do. We were devastated over it and kept second guessing if this really happened, or if it was just a rogue deer. The next day we saw the dent in the front of the car. Yes, it really did happen.
I’m a believer now.
