Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Jim Von Lossow:
Additional information: Witness approached the 2 unknown figures riding in his car. At first he was unsure of what he was seeing, but as the road began a slight downhill section, he got a better look. This is when the headlights were raised enough to see the entire silhouette of both figures. They were in his headlights for 6 - 8 seconds. He was able to describe them as very heavy shouldered animals, running smoothly on two legs, at nearly 30 mph in his estimation. He just had glanced at his speedometer and it read 40 mph. In the 8 seconds of the sighting he was gaining on the pair but not overtaking them at any great speed. Also stated both had pointed head shapes with little or no neck and bulky, thick shoulders which were covered in black hair. The witness kept repeating how powerful and tall the two animals were, estimating upwards of 9 feet in height. Weight between 500 - 800 pounds. One was running near the centerline of the roadway, the other on the right hand shoulder portion of the road. The one in the center of the road began to angle his run toward the right side where it ran along side the other for a few steps. At this pont both veered off the road on a full run into the brushy treeline. The witness did not stop his vehicle, but continued on home.
This witness has had other documented sightings near this area as a full time forestry manager. He spends an estimated 300 days a year in the woods.
