Follow-up investigation report:
This witness seems very credible. He has spent a lot of time in the woods around this area and up the Klamath because his brother was a logger in the sixties. The witness was articulate and did not sway from his original story as I interviewed him.
The area where he had his sighting has a long history of bigfoot sightings dating back from hundreds of years ago to just over a few months ago.
