BIGFOOT Frightens Northampton County, Pennsylvania Boy in Garden

A Northampton County, Pennsylvania boy was in the family garden picking vegetables when he noticed a dark reddish brown face staring back at him. When it smiled at him, he took off frightened.

I received the following account:

"It was in the late 1970s, in Northampton County, Pennsylvania, not far from the Lehigh River. It was early summer, around noon. Bright sunny day. The area where the sighting occurred is now developed but used to be brushland and sparse forest.

Growing up, my family grew a large vegetable garden to help feed our family. It was at the end of a large backyard about 10 feet from the brushline. Groundhogs raided it for food, so it had a small fence around it which didn't stop them honestly.

One day, when I was a kid, my Mom sent me out to the garden alone to fetch vegetables for lunch. I started picking when I noticed a face staring at me from the brush about chest-high to an 8-year-old. The face was dark reddish brown, covered in hair, a large forehead, a short, flat, and wide nose with black eyes. It was as large as my torso and human-like but more animal than human.

Not sure what I was seeing, I walked up to it stayed inside the fence, and stared at it. It stared back without moving. After a while with the face staying motionless, I remembered what my Mom wanted me to do and got back to picking vegetables. But I noticed the face was still watching me as I was in the garden.

When I finished picking vegetables, I walked back to the face and stared at it. The face stared back unmoving. At this point, I had convinced myself that the face must be an illusion of some sort, and I was fooling myself. What else could it be?

So I smiled in relief. And the face smiled back. Only when it smiled, it had long pointed canine teeth.

I did what any kid would do. I dropped my basket of vegetables and ran screaming at the top of my lungs back inside the house. My Mom and brother went outside to the garden (Dad was running errands), and the face was gone. It was a long time before I would go to the garden alone again.

I've never seen Bigfoot again and I live in a major city now, but I want to go back to the forest to find it again someday." N
