Cop Laughs At Walking Bear Story, Goes Home And Realizes He Should've Listened.
He Was Skeptical
When he started getting calls about a Bigfoot-type creature roaming through neighborhood gardens, he thought everyone was pulling his leg. He had no way of knowing that something was about to happen that would change him and all of New Jersey quite likely forever.
Duty Comes First
Steven had been a New Jersey cop his entire life, and he’d dealt with some pretty weird cases over the years. But he never heard of a beast quite like this one before. He spent most of his time busy at work, which meant he missed his family an awful lot. But with his wife and young daughter home alone, he knew he needed to earn enough money to fight an uphill battle at home.
Was It A Hoax?
Being a cop can be intense, fortunately, prank calls and unusual reports tend to diffuse the tension at the police station. In 2014, a call came in about a bear-like creature walking on both legs like a human, and it was crossing the park in Rockaway Township. Steven thought it was a hoax, and he had more important police business to attend to. But he didn’t realize at the time that this alleged prank would turn into a high-profile case.
As more sightings of this creature were reported, the cop decided to take a look for himself. So, he got in his patrol car and drove off to investigate the latest reported sighting. It was the only way to put his mind at ease. But he wondered, was this real? Was Bigfoot roaming around town? The only way he’d be convinced it wasn’t a hoax was if he saw it with his own two eyes.
Had To Make Sure
He was a huge animal lover. Since he lived in New Jersey his whole life, he was used to seeing bear cubs roaming in the woods while he was growing up. And now, people claimed a creature, possibly a bear, was roaming the woods. But why would a bear walk on two legs? Could it be a teen pulling a prank in a Bigfoot outfit? Or was it something supernatural? He simply had to find out.
