Arizona Bigfoot Sighting
Roger Peterson Bigfoot Encounter
In May 1987 in Arizona
The Encounter happened in May 1987 at Painted Rock Lake about 30 Miles Northwest of Gila Bend, Arizona.
Me and My Four Friends were on a Weekend Fishing Trip. The Only one with a Rifle Was Me So I Was Responsible For The Group. We Arrived at the Lake about 5:30 pm and loaded ourselves down with our supplies to stay overnight right up against the face of the Dam.
As We walked the Distance of about Two Thousand Yards to the Dam through Salt Cedars taller than Us we knew we were there for the Night,No Chance walking out in the Dark. The Dam is Very High and to the North of us was a sheer cliff a few hundred feet high, the Dam to the East, South was Impassible Salt Cedars and One Way In to The West which you did not try to Navigate at Night with all the Rattlesnakes and other wild animals around such as Coyotes and Mountain Lions.
As I Said we were In For The Night. Just Before Dark We All Saw Special Forces Personel on Quad Runners and Three Wheelers With High Powered Weapons and Tranquilizer Guns but We paid Them No Mind, We Were After Catfish. Everything was Fine until About 2:00 O'clock in the Morning. We Heard Rumblings in the bushes all around Us and it was Rather Un-Nerving because I was the Only One Armed and that was only with a 410 Single Shot, ShotGun.
The Noises stopped so I dozed off. To My Surprise This was a Night with a Full Moon so besides Our Coleman Lantern You could See Pretty Good.As I was laying there Half Asleep, It all the sudden Got Dark and it Awakened Me only to See This Huge Hairy Thing Not 10 Feet Above Me!!!!!!!!
I Shiver to this Day Just Writng You About It. All I Said was " Oh Great A Dam Bigfoot " I Thought I was Dreaming But I Was Not. There It Was Right Above My Head !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I Got To My FEET and it took off into the Darkness. I Cannot Be Sure But I think It was a Female because It had what appeared to be Mammories. One Of My Friends was just outside Camp taking a Relief and I Yelled to Him " Look Out " and He came Running back to Camp Scared to Death. Evidently He Ran Straight into It coming Back To Camp. By This Time We were All Wide Awake and my other Three Friends were Armed with Nothing but Hunting Knives and We all Stood Gaurd in All Directions , My Other Friend was so Scared He Was Useless to Us.
We were Boxed In and No Way Out Till Daylight.. Then Came that God Awful Yell and We were Scared out of Our Skins. The Rumblings In The Bushes returned and Then We Heard The Fish in The Slew Going Crazy And We Found Out Why. Not 15 Feet from Us Stood This Huge Creature In The Middle Of The Water !!!!!!!!!!
This Thing Stood About 9 Feet Tall I Know because I stand 6 Feet Tall and In That Water it Came Right Up To My Neck but On this Creature , It Barely came up to It's Waste.
We were Terrified as It stood there Looking At Us. I did Not Want To Shoot God Help Me Because I Was Not Sure, It Looked Almost Human !!!!!!!!I I was keeping My Rifle Pointed at It just in Case. Then Our Lantern Started Running Low on Fuel And We Had No Backup except Our Fire. We Soon Found The Bright Lantern Light Was The Only Thing Keeping It Back.
Lantern Low On Fuel, We Decided to build the Fire As High As We Could And Refuel The Lantern Fast. My Friends did so and I held My Shotgun on It. Just as the Lantern went out; It Charged Straight For Me So I Fired At Point Blank Range Dead In This Things Chest But It Did Not Go Down !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
My Friends got the Lantern going and There It stood Holding The Right Side Of It"s Chest. It just Looked at Us and Then It Turned and It Cut Through The Waste High Water On It 25 Feet to the Opposite Shore in Seconds and Crashed through the Trees and It Started Yelling Again.
About this time it was approximately 4:30 am and We were Praying for the Sun to Rise So We Could Get Out Of There!
When Morning Came , We Investigated and We Found the Prints and We Found Blood From Whatever It Was. We Saw The Hole The Thing Made When It Crashed Through The Trees the night before and it was big enough for Us to Walk through No Problem. We Did Not Stick Around, We Got The Hell Out Of There. As We made Our way to My Truck We Saw Two Special Forces Agents.
One Remarked to the Other "Well at Least One of Those Guys Was Smart Enough To Be Armed. " We Said Nothing and Got The Heck Out.
Nobody believed Us When We Reported Our Encounter to the Police and Game Warden and Here is the Funniest Part. Two Days Later The Game Warden Tried to Arrest Me For Shooting an Endangered Species. When I told Him, " You Arrest Me But First You Have To Tell Me What It Was I Alledgedly Shot." He Then Backed Down From Arresting Me But Told Me To Stay Where I Could Be Found For Further Questioning.
I Swear I Am Not Making This Up , It Actually Happened and I Really Fell Apart 2 Weeks Later On My Birthday. My Brother Showed Me A Sketch Of What He Had Seen That Was Not Accurate Deliberately So He Would Know With My Completing The Sketch He Knew We Had Really Had This Encounter.
To This Day It Still Scares Me To Death, I was 31 years old Then but Today I Can Still See And Hear It As If It Were Yesterday.
