DATE: 7/11/06 or 7/12
COUNTY: Schoolcraft County
LOCATION DETAILS: Betwen Gulliver Lake and Lake Michigan

NEAREST ROAD: Gulliver Lake road
OBSERVED: I was on vacation with my family at Gulliver Lake in Scoolcraft county MI in the Upper Peninsula. Me and my sister would usually take a walk after dinner. The path we would always take was Gulliver lake road ( I believe) next to the lake that looped back to our fathers cabin. Next to the lake was a wooded area that went uphill then on the other side was large sand dune. We went out later than usual so it was completly dark outside, a moonless night save a few lightpoles. As we passed the lake and made left to the other side of the wooded area where the dunes were my sister heard something but at the time she did not say anything. As we kept walking my sister would say to me that something was following us on our left side behind the treeline. We stopped to listen I thought i heard something move but was not sure. As we started to leave the wooded area behind us we both clearly heard a grunt 20 feet behind us. It sounded like a " ooogghh" or "uuugghh". I swear it sounded as if it tellin us to get out of its territorry.
ALSO NOTICED: Pitchblack moonless night. Heard a dog barking close to where we were at.
OTHER WITNESSES: Me and my sister
OTHER STORIES: No, I have asked my dad's friends and relatives of mine be they thought it could be a bear.
TIME AND CONDITIONS: Nighttime. Moonless pitch black around 10:30 or 11pm
ENVIRONMENT: A Island of woods between two roads. Hill with woods and a sand dune.
Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Eric Lester:
I spoke with the witness about his experience. Not much more could be added to the description of the event. The creature's walking wasn't heard clearly by the witness, but by his sister; it couldn't be ascertained if it sounded bipedal or not.
The grunt sounded as if it came from something big, and sounded very close to them. It also scared them very badly. Nothing else was noticed that night, and nothing has happened since the incident.
The area lies near Lake Superior State Forest, which borders Hiawatha National Forest.
See report #2554 for another incident that took place near this location.
