Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Ron Boles:
Talked to witness and he stated there is also a neighbor who seen an animal fitting the profile. Also, a reoccurring peacock-like scream is heard in the neighboring woods. A street lamp is in the area of the sighting but not in the immediate location of where the animal walked in front the street sign. The figure of the animal was so large that it totally blocked the street sign while passing by.
