A woman who says she spotted a sasquatch in the San Bernardino mountains has filed a lawsuit to prove it.
As our sister station KABC reported, Crestline resident Claudia Ackley was hiking with her two daughters along a trail near Lake Arrowhead between 6:30 pm and 7:00 pm on March 17, 2017. During the hike, Ackley's daughters noticed something strange.
"They're standing right there frozen looking at something," Ackley said. She believes her daughters were looking at Bigfoot.
"He looked like a Neanderthal man with a lot of hair," Ackley told KABC's Rob McMillan. "About 800 pounds. I was trying to tell it to please not hurt us, and that's when he just stared at me."
Ackley described the creature as a "Neanderthal man with a lot of hair."
After her encounter, Ackley called 911, but the authorities didn't believe her. Some have suggested she may have seen a bear.
"...this was no bear. I know what I saw," Ackley said.
Ackley has filed a lawsuit against the state of California, as well as the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, for refusing to acknowledge the existence of the species of Bigfoot. The spokesperson for the CDFW would not comment because of the pending lawsuit.
Ackley will have her day in court on March 19.
