On the evening of January 23, 2021, Californian police officer Rick Bates was driving down an empty highway, returning home when he saw a very massive humanoid figure lying face down on the side of the road, covered from head to toe with brown hair
The site of the American Bigfoot Field Research Organization (BFRO) recently posted a new report on the observation of the Yeti, which was sent to them by a police officer named Rick Bates.
On the evening of January 23, 2021, at about 8:15 PM, Bates was driving his car home to Garberville, California, on Highway 101, returning from a mission from Brookings, Oregon.
"South of the Benbow Hotel, the highway makes several turns and therefore the speed of the cars here drops sharply. As I turned right, I noticed a certain figure that was lying on the southern (right) side of the highway.
The figure in length (height) was about 2 meters, I saw his back with wide shoulders and a thick torso. The figure was similar in shape to a human, but it was definitely not human. And she also did not belong to the bear.
I saw the muscular shape of his buttocks and the head on his shoulders that taper towards the top. The body hair was chocolate brown and looked rather well-groomed. They were not at all like bear fur.
I drove a little along the highway, and then turned around and returned again to the place where I saw this figure. During this time, no cars passed on the highway in one direction or another, except for mine. But when I returned to the same place (and only about 2 minutes had passed), the figure on the side of the road was nowhere to be seen.
As an avid hunter, I spend a lot of time in the forest. Every summer I've been camping in the area since I was a kid. And I have never seen anything like what I saw that evening."
The location where the observation took place
Singular Fortean researchers have discovered that a police officer named Rick Bates is indeed a real person who serves in Ronert Park, California.
Later to the researcher Matt Moneymaker managed to contact Bates and talk about his case. He said that Bates is only 20 years old, but he is described as a very observant and responsible person.
“He drove this highway many times and he no doubt saw a large animal lying next to the highway in the dark, illuminated by the headlights of his car. The question is, what kind of animal it could be. He hunted bears, elk, deer, etc., and he says that this creature had an explicit human body form, but covered in hair.
His body lay perpendicular to the highway. His feet were within 1 foot of the white line on the side of the highway, as if he had been hit by a car earlier,”says Moneymaker.
