Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Mike Brumfield:
Witness was driving on a paved connecter road about 30 ft. wide on a clear and sunny Sunday afternoon. As he crested a hill and started down the dip on the other side, he notices on the right hand side of the road what appeared to be at first a bush. As he gets closer the bush begins to look like a linebacker on the line of scrimmage on a football field. As he closes the distance, the bush explodes and in four strides crosses the road 15 or so yards in front of the car. The 8-9 ft. tall creature moved at incredible speed. The creature's fur/ hair was grayish brown with red highlights. The backside of the animal was all matted.
The witness was unable to get a clear look at the creature’s face, it did not look at the car.
