Steenburg File #10171

2011/07/03 – Near Chetwynd. Something Seen Along the
Railway Tracks: A railway line inspector for the Canadian National
Railway reported that he saw two unusual man-like creatures cross
the railway tracks at a distance of about 800 feet. He described them
as being hair covered (dark brown in color), massive upper body and
very long arms. He estimated the height of one individual at about 7
feet and the other about 6.5 feet. They were walking side-by-side
with the taller one a little ahead of the other. They crossed the tracks,
proceeded along a rocky creek bank and entered an area with willow
trees where they disappeared from sight. The inspector heard a high pitched
laugh-like sound from the willows. He went to the area
where the tracks had been crossed but did not find any footprints
there or in the long grass leading up to the rail line. Nevertheless, the
path they had taken could be seen in the grass. He also looked along
the creek bank; no prints were seen, but he sensed a slight unpleasant
odor.
The inspector was part of a crew of men, but the others had left
before the sighting. He later told his wife of the incident and she
informed Thomas Steenburg who followed up with the inspector.
