The Kentucky Yeti
Witness: Donna (last name on file)
City: Between Drake and Gold City (south of Bowling Green)
Location: East side of I-65
The witness called us on 12-6-2016 after a request via Facebook. She was driving home to Louisville after attending the Liberty Bowl in Memphis, TN. Also in the vehicle were her son (front seat) and a friend in the backseat.
Donna explained they had attended the football game in near blizzard conditions (-20 degrees). “It was so miserable, even the players wanted the game to end ASAP,” she recalled. After leaving Memphis late, the road conditions were horrendous (poor visibility and ice). She maintained 30-35mph throughout the night. About an hour after they crossed into Kentucky, her vehicle was the only car crawling along I-65 at 4:30am. Donna explained she was wide awake due to treacherous road conditions. Her passengers, not as vigilant as they fell asleep earlier. Her car was travelling in the right lane. There was an emergency lane to her right, then some grass, and then an old wire fence (with squares). The treeline was sparse, only a few large trees along the fence. Donna said she observed a very large, upright creature “lumbering along” the fence. It was 7 to 7 and a half feet tall, furry and all-covered in snow. It stepped over the fence, by placing a hand on the fence, then stepped over the fence, just like a tall person would do. “It acted like it wanted to cross I-65,” explained Donna. It looked at her vehicle, then began walking north along the fence. At the closest point to her vehicle, Donna estimated it was only 15 yards away. When it registered what she was observing, she exclaimed, “Oh my God, there’s a Bigfoot! Or Yeti!” Her son saw it and her friend in the backseat only caught a glimpse. The friend in the backseat said it was just a guy in a big coat. Then he said, it was probably just a tree. Donna never stopped her vehicle, however she wanted desperately to turn the car around and go back, but her son and friend refused.
Donna described the creature as having typical Bigfoot features: long arms, long torso, wide shoulders, “furry” long hair covered in snow, no neck, large head, ape-like face with a pronounce brow ridge, large dark eyes, wide nose and mouth. The hair closely surrounded its face. There was no hair on the palm of it’s hands. The skin on it’s face and palms was very dark.
Investigator's Insight: We obviously do not have Yetis in Kentucky, just Bigfoots. The Yeti is just another type of Bigfoot-related hominin which lives in the Himalayas. Surprising to most people, the Yeti does not have white hair, it has reddish-brown hair, similar to most Bigfoots in North America, just covered in snow.

(last name on file) contacted us regarding an encounter which occurred
in 1995. Although he never saw the creature, his brother was the actual
witness. After some persuasion Brandon obtained a report from his brother.
Below is what he reported:
Location: Northwestern Simpson County, nearest city Franklin,
nearest main road would be Highway 100, couldn't remember the exact
country road but it was no more than 5-6 miles off of 100.
How many witnesses? 2
How far was the creature from the witnesses? 35 feet approx.
long did the sighting last? 1.5 to 2 minutes
were driving around in a Bronco II, and there was somewhat of a straight
stretch and then a hard left, so the headlights were facing straight
into the woods. And then, someone said "Did you see that?",
and the driver backed up and shined the lights into the woods to get
a better look. We saw this tall figure, red eyes staring back at us.
We are sitting there staring at it, it ain' moving, we ain't moving.
Then one of the passengers tried to open the door, and at that time
it slowly turned and walked away, and then we noticed someone next to
it (another figure about six feet tall.) We were looking at each other
like "That just happened?" And we drove away.
the creature from head to toe:
saw the eyes, no facial features, broad with long arms, it was big.
I asked him how tall, he said 7 and 1/2 to 8 ft, 260-300 lbs. When
I said "Hey you know that it is well within human possibilities,
I asked him, how big was it in comparison to Shaq, and his response
was "It was bigger than Shaq!"
That is it. Those were his words, and not my recollection of what happened even though I was there. I never saw anything. If I did, I feel like I would have remembered it. He and the driver saw them. After he gave me a height estimate, and the fact there was a smaller one there, I'm guessing it was a female, so I asked him about breasts and he said he couldn't see any. He told me he basically saw the outline.
we got to the part about "describe the creature" He paused
and goes "cone shaped head at the top" He has no interest
in bigfoot, hasn't read any reports, and I was just blown away. I didn't
prompt him at all. I wrote the words he said. I know I've read many
many reports about the "cone shaped head" I was waiting for
him to say "no neck" but I didn't ask questions just let him
tell me what he remembered."
