Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Kevin Smykal:

Although he at first thought he was seeing a huge man, he then realized it was covered with hair. Also noted was movement of the hair as it walked. The white color on the lower legs may have been sand stuck to its hair. The witness left the scene immediately after his sighting. When he returned to the area the next day, he found a branch that the creature had ducked under while walking and the witness could not reach it. The Kisatchie National Forest is the only national forest in Louisiana.
