FALL 1965, LITTLE JEDITO WASH, ARIZONA, USA, ROGER HEATH:

Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

Authors of a 1978 book on strange creatures sightings apparently reported about a letter by one Roger Heath, a schoolteacher, telling that on Fall 1965, in the afternoon, near Little Jedito Wash, North of Winslow, Arizona, USA, driving and nearing the Second Mesa in the Hopi indian reservation, he saw a 3 feet high creature with shining black fur, a round head, and long arms, on the side of the road.

The witness reportedly stopped, pointed a gun out the window at the apparently harmless being, stared at it. The being then bounded away into the desert brushes, hopping and using his arms to propel itself.

The story then entered "Bigfoot" catalogues and ufology catalogues.

[Ref. bf1:] "BIGFOOT FACT OR FANTASY" WEBSITE:

The website indicates that in autumn 1965, in Little Jedito Wash, North of Winsiow [sic, Winslow], Arizona, Roger Heath, a school teacher, saw a 3 feet high creature with shining black fur and long arms hopping and scrambling at a roadside.

The source is indicated to be data from "Chronological List of Bigfoot Sightings (1818-1980)" in "The Bigfoot Casebook", by Janet and Colin Bord, 1982, New York: Granada Publishing.

[Ref. ar1:] ALBERT ROSALES:

Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that near Little Jedito Wash, Arizona, on Fall of 1965, in the afternoon, a man driving through a local Hopi Indian reservation was nearing the Second Mesa area when he noticed a strange figure on the side of the road. The witness stopped, pointed a gun out the window, and stared at the figure. The figure was shiny black in color, man-like with very long arms, a round head and appeared harmless. The figure then bounded away into the desert brush using his arms to propel himself.

Albert Rosales indicates as source Loren Coleman, Strange Magazine #7.

[Ref. ud1:] "UFODNA" WEBSITE:

The website indicates that in Fall 1965, in Little Jedito Wash, Arizona, USA, a humanoid being was seen. and a mysterious physical anomaly and an inhuman creature were reported by a male witness named Heath.

The source is indicated as Eberhart, George M., A Geo-Bibliography of Anomalies, Greenwood Press, Westport, 1980, ISBN:0-313-21337-2.

[Ref. ud2:] "UFODNA" WEBSITE:

The website notes the case of the Fall of 1965 at 15:00, in Little Jedito Wash, Arizona, USA, providing the summary in [ar1] as description.

The source is indicated by a hyperlink to a nonexistent page.

Points to consider:

A round head, long arms, a black shining fur, the help of arms to get away, this all suggests that the cretaure was some chimp. In any case, nothing suggest any relationship with UFOs or that the creature was a UFO occupant.
