Description (In Witness's Own Words): I am a truck driver. I have seen something very similar in the high country of AZ about a year and a half ago. I was traveling across a two lane highway on my way to Phoenix late at night and I came around a bend and saw something very big with bright red eyes standing off the side of the road . It wasn't a deer or Elk because it was too tall. I sit about 6-7 feet up from the ground and I was looking at it straight from my cab. I didn't like it, and I didn't slow- I just got moving. I have never forgotten it. I will say this: I have very bright lights on my tractor and all I saw were trees and eyes and a slight outline. It was very, very large. I have seen a lot of things out on the road and I do report the sightings to the National UFO Reporting Center, but odd animals and strange things that happen at home I do not report.

Second Report by Witness (In Response to Investigator Questions): I was traveling in a Western direction. What I do is exit I40 at Holbrook and go southbound on 77, then jump on 377 to 277 into Heber, AZ then continue on highway 260 west past Willow Springs Lake. The road will split into a divided highway and just as you pass an area called Christopher Creek the divided high ends. I had just come around a bend in the road and I saw something to right of the truck and I looked right at it. I could see kind of glowing red eyes. The eyes were quite large and I saw a slight out line against the trees. The creature was very large as I stated before I sit pretty high up in the truck and I saw it plain as day and I remember saying to myself "What the heck was that?" I have seen deer and elk along that road many times, but this wasn't one. I recall it being cold out so this was probably late fall, but not winter. I do not run that road in the winter. Since I ran the road many times I cannot pinpoint a date. I would guess it was 2005. I didn't run that road in 2004 and I wasn't there in the fall of 2006. The sighting time was after 10 pm but not yet 11 pm. I remember getting to the yard in Phoenxi around midnight. I will send a drawing to you. I do not have any software that I can use to produce.

Investigator's Notes: The witness is comparing his sighting to the sighting of a creature near Crosby, Texas on December 16, 2006. Click here to read about this sighting. The witness will be sending a drawing of what he saw. The sighting obviously impacted the witness and he vividly recalls details. (The exception is the date of occurrence.) If the witness sends the drawing, it will be posted on this site. It doesn't sound like this sighting involved any animal. The witness seemed to be familiar with animal life in the area as he regularly travels this route. Any new information will be posted.
