Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator TF Zamiski:
I spoke with this witness on 1/31/08.
The sound seemed to come from across the lake, hard to judge the distance. They were sleeping in a camper.
This witness is familiar with animal sounds and has spent considerable time outdoors. The only sound he could identify this particular incident with are the recordings on this website.
The Show Low area has a history of BF related incidents.
