OBSERVED: We were cooking a hog mid day on a smoker and across the road in a big field about 300 yards away, there was a huge hairy creature standing beside a white oak and looking at us. I grabbed my phone and took a picture and then it disappeared. After it was gone. Myself and my father in law walked up to examine the area. There were tracks and judging by a mark on the tree and looking at the photograph. This creature was estimated 8 feet tall. The owner of the property says he sees it all the time.

Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator David Bakara:
I spoke with the witness by phone. He, the property owner, and his father were cooking a hog on a cooker around 11:30 am. The property is located among large pastures and fields for livestock. These fields include slight rolling hills and a few stands of oaks for livestock shade. The witness looks toward one of the fields, and at a distance of 300-400 yards, sees a very large dark figure apparently watching them cook this hog. The witness stated he asked the property owner "what is that"? The owner response was "oh, that, I see him all the time". The witness had his cell phone and took a photo, this is a screen shot of that photo:
The witness was somewhat surprised that his friend quickly ended the conversation and seemed unwilling to further discuss the matter.. when the witness looked back, the figure was gone. At no time did the witness see the figure walk to or from the spot. It was there and 40 seconds later, it was gone. After the figure was gone, the witness and his father walked out to the spot it was standing and by using the height of tree branches, they estimated its standing height at 8 feet. Tracks were evident but not good enough to cast or photograph.
