Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Brad Bacon:
I spoke with the witness in a telephone interview and the following information can be included. The creature had its back turned toward the witness and was walking away from his field of view towards a tree line and thick woods. The sighting lasted only a few seconds, but the witness clearly recalled that the creature was walking. "It had arms and legs and was hairy" said the witness. The witness recalled that the hair was dark brown in color and in some spots the hair appeared to be matted.
Brandywine Ski Resort is adjacent to the Cuyahoga Valley National Park.
