TR 78 JUN 1998 * Randy Wertz report. In 1977 I was living in Budd Lake, New Jersey which is in the northwestern corner of Morris County on the border of Sussex County. In the fall, there had been some sightings of a Bigfoot-like creature near the town of Sussex in Sussex County. At the time, photography was a big thing with me and my wife and I liked to go to an area off Old Mine Road in Montague, New Jersey, to walk and take pictures. Getting back to the Bigfoot, he had terrorized several farmers by killing and mutilating some rabbits they raised. The newspaper articles stated the creature returned several times and was seen by quite a few people. There were several encounters with motorists along the back roads in the area. Sussex county is very rugged in places. Most people think of New Jersey as full of factories and refineries, but western north Jersey is very beautiful with high, rolling hills and ridges. It is excellent for hiking and camping.

TR 78 JUN 1998 * Randy Wertz report. In 1977 I was living in Budd Lake, New Jersey At the time, photography was a big thing with me and my wife and I liked to go to an area off Old Mine Road in Montague, New Jersey, to walk and take pictures. On a Saturday afternoon, my wife and I had decided to take a ride up to the area I mentioned to take some pictures of the fall foliage. We parked at the old cemetery on Old Mine Road and walked through the cemetery to the Delaware River (about 150 feet). This is a place we'd been to a hundred times and liked to picnic there. For some reason, my wife was not comfortable and wanted to leave almost as soon as we got there. She couldn't tell me why, but got more edgy the longer we sat there. I didn't want to leave because it was such a beautiful day and it was going to be the only time off I had that week. The whistle and scream that came next was enough to convince me we should have gone to the movies. It started like the type of whistle a human makes when they put their fingers in their mouths and blow. The scream was not of pain, but more of a challenge and it was so close that I thought we were going to be attacked. My wife was up and running leaving me as the rear guard (yeah, right) and at the sound of the scream, I was on the move. The sounds we heard were from the river bank just to the south of where we sat. However, as we got to the car, there was another series of whistles and grunts in the woods to our left across the road from the cemetery. There was no way whatever made the sounds by the river could have gotten past us or we would have seen it crossing the road. That led me to believe there was more than one.
