DATE: June 05th
COUNTY: Miami County
LOCATION DETAILS: In Tipp City at the Great Miami River.
NEAREST TOWN: Tipp City
OBSERVED: So I was with five of my friends fly fishing and when we pulled in we noticed an almost dead silence. So we go along the trail to our spot we always fish at do to the large amount of bass we have caught down there. So as we were walking my rod snagged on a branch that was split at a 90 degree right angle. From there we reached the river and the others started fishing but I fell off. I knew of reports out here and the legend of the Grassman. So as we were fishing I hear a snap from across the river then I see the thing stand up over 8-10 feet tall and growl before I saw a tree fall behind us. We booked it. We reached the truck and started going but the creature went in front of the gravel road looking at us as it walked and we had trees falling. So the next day we come back out to look for the creature and I hear a shot go off. So I move us back to the trail and get to the truck. I didn't have my phone but we found a weird intertwined tree things and rocks around it.
ALSO NOTICED: After the incident we went back and found tracks and broken trees before moving out do to a feeling. We also had hunch that a Squatch was back there so it is becoming a known area to our group for being a good sighting location
OTHER WITNESSES: 5. We were all fishing and observing
OTHER STORIES: My friend also found a track back there 2 days prior
TIME AND CONDITIONS: 8:00 pm
Sun still up but going down. It was still clear
ENVIRONMENT: Started on a wooded area. We then moved to a river with woods behind us. We also walked the trail for awhile where it was dry and not muddy

Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Jonny Walker:
During the phone interview I had with the fisherman, it was apparent to me that this experience had a profound effect on him and his friends. Though apprehensive about going back to the spot, he and his friends did return to see what evidence, if any, they could find. I applauded him on braving a return and did my best to reassure him that to my knowledge, there were no reports of a human being attacked. Intimidated yes, but not harmed. I believe he sounded relieved to that fact. I traveled to Tipp City to locate the area. Though I could not locate the aforementioned path off the main trail, I did see that there was several deer paths along the walking/biking trail, and one path had the appearance that something of large size had passed through the tall plants.
The above link are photos I took at the location and surrounding area during my follow-up investigation.
