In the summer of 1975, "T.P." and a
companion were on the highway at Salmon Arm around 1:00 a.m. They stopped the Datsun to
relieve themselves at the side of the road. While doing so, T.P. spotted something
crouching in the ditch about 100 yards away. It had green glowing eyes!!! T.P. thought
initially that it was a bear, but he changed his mind when it stood up and appeared to be
8 - 9 feet tall and started walking towards them! They hurriedly scrambled into the car
and began to drive away. As they did so, the "person/animal" ran alongside the
car for about 30 feet. No unusual odour was recalled.
