Steenburg File #10176

2012/02/04 – Hope area: Two-legged Gigantic Figure: Two brothers
used an unattended (off-hours) vehicle scale in the Hope area and
saw a very large man-like figure nearby on February 4, 2012 at
10:30 pm.  As they drove away from the scale the brother who was
driving saw the figure in the car rear view mirror and remarked,
“That’s one big fella,” and slowed down.  The other brother turned
around and also saw the oddity; later referred to as “gigantic.”  It was
slightly hunched over and walking on two legs. They estimated it
was about 50 feet from the scale and felt that it was waiting for them to
leave.  Both brothers are very tall (6 feet, 5 inches, and 6 feet, 3 inches)
and they believe the entity was much taller than they were. They
watched and the figure crossed the highway and disappeared into the
bush on the other side.
Thomas Steenburg and Bill Miller went to the location and
investigated the incident, but did not find any footprints, despite
snow on the ground directly at the back of the scale; however, the
oddity may not have come from that direction. They were able to see
video taken by the scale security camera, but it was pointing in
another direction at the time the figure was seen.
