Joe Bilyeu, a good friend and Bigfoot researcher from TN, referred this witness. I spoke
with the witness by phone on 4-19-2016.

Robert was a sophomore at Bowling Green High School in 1976 when he joined the ROTC. Part of the initiation required a 2 hour hike to a remote location for an overnight camping trip. After reaching the remote location with his fellow cadets (an old farm), they set-up camp.

Being a newbie, Robert had to take guard duty which was down a ridge, about ¼ mile from camp. Around 3:00am he took his post in the shadow of an old barn. After about 30 minutes he noticed a bush swaying back and forth, approximately 100 yards away. The odd part, there was no wind. The other bushes and trees were not moving. For about 15 minutes, he kept glancing over at it and it was still swaying back and forth. “I was not overly concerned,” explained Robert. The “bush” was not in the treeline, rather in a field next to other bushes. As he watched it, to Robert’s astonishment it suddenly stood up and walked away on two legs! Completely shocked, Robert let out a scream and hightailed it back to camp! He said the cadets back at camp heard his scream. Robert swears this thing was much taller and bulkier than any man.

The cadets did go investigate the spot, but found nothing significant.

A GIANT Unearthed at Bowling Green, Kentucky Measures Nine Feet in Length Double Rows of Teeth

The Daily Ledger, Noblesville, Indiana - Aug. 16 1902

"The skeleton of a prehistoric giant was exhumed near Bowling Green yesterday by a colored laborer, who terrified at his find, ran, breathless, to the nearest farmhouse and notified the neighborhood. The skeleton when placed together as is was in life, measured nearly nine feet in length. The skull measures almost 12 inches in diameter, and there are two distinct rows of teeth in the massive jaw. The bones are well preserved with the exception of the pelvic bones, which are considerably decayed. The bones were thought to be the remains of some giant Indian, but the shape of the head is not, the shape of the skull peculiar to Indians, and the age in which the man lived is still in doubt. The bones of the toes and fingers are remarkably well preserved and appear to have something resembling claws attached. The arms of the giant measure many inches more than those of a man today, and the lower limbs not so long--the skeleton resembled a huge gorilla. There is no wound visible on the bones, and that the man died of natural death is quite possible."

Large burial mounds that contained giant skeletons were common in Kentucky.

Hikers Spot Bigfoot Chasing Deer

July 23, 2005 - 8:30 pm.

Witness hiking around large lake sees Bf chasing a deer across a game trail. He yells out in fear which causes the creature to stop and look at him, then run back into the woods in the direction from which it came. It was very large and walked and ran on two legs, like a man, and had a muscular body covered with brown hair. He also described it as having human like eyes and a bad smell.
