Weather Conditions: clear

Sighting Details:
My freind and i were fishing on what is known as bear pond, it is a fairly large spring fed pond in a secluded area of hopatcong/byrum. Most of the pond is surrounded by a game preserve and on the other side of that u can pretty much get into sparta without ever coming out of the woods. We were fishing on the back section of the pond where the terrain is very hilly and rocky.

It was getting late and the sun had allready gone down and it was getting dark. We were drifting in a narrow strip of water behind an island when all of the sudden we heard what sounded like a girl screaming getting chased through the woods. We heard it a good distance away and it was coming in our direction down through a valley. I have spent a lot of time in the woods, I used to hunt and I fish as much as i can. I have never heard somthing like this, it was definitly on two legs because you could hear each foot hitting the ground. It was breaking sticks and branches that sounded like they were two inches in diameter.

As it got closer it was still screaming, at this point it was about thirty five yards away crashing through the woods I could hear a second one behind it. The second one sounded fairly larger and heavier but it wasant vocalizing just running.

My friend and I were getting nervous by this time but still remained very quiet and still. When it came in directly in front of us at about twenty yards it stopped dead in its tracks, the second one about twenty five feet bhind the first took two more steps and it stopped. It was very dark by this time the moon was still rising behind hill so we could not see very well and had no flashlights.

We sat there in total silence for almost an hour, we didnt move and it didnt move. It was almost ten o'clock by the time we left and it still had not moved inch. I have heard some strange things in those areas but have never even considerd a bigfoot until this.

Thank you for listening to my story, until next time.

Follow-up:

Note: There was no physical sighting. The witness heard thrashing and sounds like something was running through the woods, followed by something else. The first creature was apparently emitting a sound like a scream.
